Publisher's Summary

Nutrition is essential to living a healthy, happy, and successful life. Yet a world of misconceptions and promises of easy results too often stands in our way - and can even be harmful to our overall health.

The key is to cut through the noise and find the medically backed, statistically proven information about healthy eating and living. These 36 in-depth lectures explore the fundamentals of good nutrition and offer a practical guide for applying these fundamentals to your lifestyle. The power of nutrition lies not just in grasping the concepts behind it, but also in applying those concepts to daily living. This means learning where to find authoritative nutrition information, mastering the science behind nutrients and the body, recognizing what your personal daily requirements of each nutrient should be, building a distinct exercise regimen, and more.

A dietitian and award-winning lecturer, Professor Anding gives you a wealth of invaluable tips you can easily apply to your own eating habits. You'll learn how to calculate your own dietary needs, how to create your own nutrition and exercise plans, how to recognize when a product or service is really a health fraud, and more.

Crafted with the needs of individual people in mind, this course is both a fascinating learning experience and the perfect investment in your personal health - one that will educate you, motivate you, and reward you for the rest of your life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Everyone should listen to this"

    Totally invaluable information that everyone in the world should be taught. It's a morbid tragedy that these things are not taught in grade school.

    "Out of date"

    In particular, the author spends a bunch of time talking about how diabetes is the biggest risk factor for heart disease, and then says to reduce fat intake to avoid heart disease. If the risk factor is diabetes, then the most likely culprit is sugar, not fat. Recent science and doctors are now suggesting that fat does not cause heart disease and that sugar does.

    Story
    "Interesting but too much information..."
    What did you like best about Nutrition Made Clear? What did you like least?

    As an Ironman Triathlete (hobby - not pro), nutrition is important to me, so I bought this. Prof. Anding does a great job presenting the material in both organization and delivery. It's just too much information for me to absorb and put into practice. (My undergrad is in math and computer science and I also have a law degree).


    What does Professor Roberta H. Anding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As I noted above, she presents the material very well - her delivery cannot be captured on the written page.


    Did Nutrition Made Clear inspire you to do anything?

    Find some material that isn't as in depth...


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book is fantastic for professional nutritionists and for those with a chemistry and health background.

    "A course worth a few books"

    This course is worth a few books. Practical and full of tips, it teaches dietetics in its best. In addition, a large portion is devoted to weight management and physical activity, so you will get a know-how about physical activity and training.

    "great read"

    Very educational and informative. This book was able to provide an in-depth overview of what nutrition is and how to partially utilize the knowledge in every day life.
