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.

    "Very helpful"

    I am a powerlifter and my wife is a vegetarian, so together we both knew a decent amount about healthy whole foods and staying fit. Still, this course was fantastic for all of the detailed knowledge that it imparts. Anding was very good at keeping the content fun and focused. Sure, she had quite a few repetitive sayings but she was on point in all of the lectures. I feel I am better suited to tailor my diet to what I need.

    Story
    "Worth The Investment"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Concise, clear and relevant.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Information presented clearly, and it wasn't the same nutrition information you see in other books.


    Have you listened to any of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Same as the title of the course!


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointed there is no Guidebook included with this purchase. I may end up buying the course again from the publisher site just to get the book unless Audible can assist here. Audible????

    This audiobook is excellent, very interesting and very easy to understand.

    Story
    "Very Thorough!"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Educational, thought-provoking, life changing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nutrition Made Clear?

    I learned how to calculate calorie, protein and water intake. Professor Anding makes it pretty easy to understand how digestion works, what exactly we need in our bodies and how to avoid things we don't.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Don't be sucked in by marketing! Eat Wisely.


    Any additional comments?

    Though it was very long, it was entertaining for me to learn things that in retrospect seemed obvious. The Professor references the Guide Book a lot, which can throw off the listener. It is a little frustrating that we don't get the Guide Book with the audio recording, though I understand this is a very expensive course otherwise. The option of purchasing the Guide Book would be nice.

    Story
    "The Human body owners manual"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Have listened to Part 1. This is extreeeeemely informative. It tells how our bodies work in easy to understand language. Chapters on digestion, fiber, how vitamins are required and what they accomplish along with how too much of certain ones can hurt(B-6 and vitamin A as some examples of what she explains). Other chapters: Nutrition fact and fiction, calories, hydration, carbohydrates, protein, fat. I had been lax in taking my vitamins, but no more. This book has converted me to leading a healther life and thinking of consequences of poor food choices. I am 68 and wish I had known this in my earlier life. I am going to offer my children and grandkids $500 each if they will listen "completely" to this and take notes. They need to know this information...YOU need to know this information. Our auto manufactures include an owners manual with instructions on how to maintain our vehicles, and this is our owners manual that no one ever gave us.

    Story
    "Well Put Together"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, engaging, adequate.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I knew a about much of this before, but she presents it in a way that makes the information feel more useful. She does a particularly good job of explaining the reasons you should be cautious about which supplements you take. I have a friend who is a pharmacist who has yelled at me for taking various random supplements before, but he's never explained why this is a problem as clearly as she does here. I also like that addresses the needs of people with special diets such as vegetarians.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not particularly.


    Any additional comments?

    The description points out that this comes without the supplemental material, and it's true that most of the stuff she refers to can be found very easily online. Still, there were times when I felt like I would have been enjoyed this a bit better if I had access to the guide. That said, this is much more affordable than the full version you'd buy from Great Courses, and I think this is a great introduction to nutrition.

    Story
    "Lovin it"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    The amount of detail and info that was put out
    As a personal trainer I am always looking for more detailed
    Info to pass on... Nothing worse then getting bad info and then giving it


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    Always been interested in this matter... This info just increases my level of interest


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The details of each subject matter was presented by the step. Although it might be scientific but it all makes sense.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing wrong there .....


    Do you have any additional comments?

    Please Please produce another ..... Pretty please.
