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.

I will be listening to this one again. Some things are not in accord with recent breakthroughs but that's to be expected and it's good to hear a professional dietitian's viewpoint. After all, if we only wanted to hear our own prejudiced ideas, we need only listen to ourselves. Lots of valuable information here and it's worth keeping an open mind while listening.
Over 40 years ago I took a Nutrition course as part of the required curriculum for my nursing degree. I remember next to nothing from it and not just because it was so long ago. It was boring. I am now teaching nursing and a general consensus among faculty is that a nutrition course is no longer needed. Valid or not, this one is not to miss! This course is full of current research, relevant information for making choices, and presented in an excellent manner. It is long but worth every minute. A huge disappointment is that the Guidebook referred to frequently is not available. That would be so nice for reviewing.
As someone whose job success is dependent on my physical performance, this series gave me essential information that I was missing regarding how to feed myself for optimal performance. Professor Anding is a great speaker and backs up her claims with evidence as well as interesting stories and examples that she has seen in her own practice. I recommend this series to anyone who cares about their body - from seasoned athletes to individuals who lead a more sedentary lifestyle. She emphasizes a realistic, whole food approach and incorporates the importance of exercise in order to lead a truly healthy life.
I enjoyed some of the book, but some was very biased. I think the workbook is essential in making sense of some of this information. Could it not be available as a pdf? If not, then i think I will go to Great Courses to purchase the CD/workbook instead.
This series of lectures provided a broad overview from a science-based perspective. It was great to hear myths debunked, hear the nuanced ideas that are clearly coming from a point of "getting it correct" rather than a goal to "buy into my diet strategy", and frankly cover the span of nutrition information from food groups, nutrients, and supplements to diets, common health issues, and exercise.
Informative, Unbiased, Fascinating
She was lively, interesting, and sounded very natural.
Wonderful. I will listen to this series multiple times.
I liked how this book broke down nutrition into easily understandable chapters.
Eat to Live had a broad overview of this information
Very clear and concise.
It took me nearly a month to listen to this book.
Forcing myself to listen to the writing, because I find the information worthwhile. But if there are any more 'why did I do this?' 'what do I mean?' 'how did that happen?', my head will explode.
As a devotee of the subject matter, I appreciate the attempt, but wish someone had edited the material.
As a physician I am always looking for good nutrition information to recommend for my patients. I think this is a good concise look at nutrition, what to eat and why and why its better to get vitamins and minerals from foods than from supplements. I only wish the course book she mentions was available since it seems to have extra information that i think would be helpful for the reader. If there were supplemental information, then it would have 5 stars.
