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.

    "Good solid information, no gimicks."

    Very well done Course. The author dispensed good sound advice without gimicks and judgement. It was a long course but touched on so many topics in 30 minute increments. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to understand the basics and be able to discern the truth from fad fiction.

    "Good info, becoming outdated."

    Good science here, and it's well-presented. Clearly, Prof. Anding is knowledgeable and passionate about nutrition. I think some of this information, however, is out-dated at this point.

    "I'd rather be killed"

    Boring to death. Do NOT even think of buying this book or listen to any book read by her ( no idea of her name). She's not engaging whatsoever, it makes you feel like she reading to finish and not to get you into the topic. While listening to the first two chapters, I kept telling myself " it will be over soon", I meant the irritating and annoying materials/ way of reading. I don't wanna be judgemental, but going over some of the later chapters didn't change my mind. Now, when I think of the wasted hour on the two chapters, which by the way I'm not getting back, I consider killing myself.

    "good for US"

    I enjoyed it! But the author only did non-metrics, and overall was too normative about the wives being the cooks.

    on the positive side, it was informative and full of scientific findings.

    "So Wrong In So Many Ways"
    What disappointed you about Nutrition Made Clear?

    She promotes many of the Fake foods that are making millions ill.


    What could The Great Courses have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get her facts correct instead of promoting many of the junk food industries harmful fake foods.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She needs to go back to school.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    All human beings need to eat whole foods meaning just the way they come from nature not processed and not full of chemicals. We should count chemicals not calories. For her to say that its okay to consume sugar free products is irresponsible at best, sugar is bad in so many ways in fact cancer thrives off of it. Sugar substitutes are much more harmful then sugar. I don't consume sugar with the exception of fruit which I don't overeat. I and others feel and look so much better by eating more healthy fats like organic coconut, avocado, olive oil, nuts, seeds and fish oil and even better eating the low mercury wild caught fish like salmon and anchovies/sardines. I don't eat any grains whatsoever, they are overly processed and full of chemicals including gyphosate a compound in Roundup. I could go on and on, its a shame that this woman is making huge bucks off of this book that's full of bad information. Ketosis is NOT bad in fact once our bodies switch over from sugar burners to fat burners we are at our best in fact many of the pro athletes eat high healthy fats. If everyone stopped eating grains they would NOT be unhealthy fat or suffering from malnutrition. Protein is needed but not more than a 4-6oz a day and that should come from 100% grass fed meats and wild meats.
