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.

While Roberta Anding clearly has the credentials to back her up, she is not up to the standards of a Great Courses professor. Her lectures contain an incredible another of information, but poor presentation style, lack of structure, and an inability to tie her examples clearly to the concepts keep this course from being very good. If you're interested in nutrition and don't mind sitting through a poor lecturer, consider this course.
This was a really good series of the current science of nutrition. It was exactly what I wanted. Good, current information on what science has found out about us and what we eat
Professor Anding is a great lecturer who makes the material engaging. However, the lesson in just about every chapter boils down to "Eat more of, and a variety of whole foods, fruits, and vegetables." The science behind this is covered in each case, but it's really not critical to making healthy eating habits if you believe the core lesson I mentioned above.
The information was presented in an intelligent and clear way.
Salt, Sugar, and Fat - It is engaging and informative.
The pdf guide that comes with these lectures is a gem! I printed the whole thing off and I use it for reference.
Good reading voice
Would recommend to all interested in the Science behind nutrition recommendations
This is the kind of nutritional science I've been trying to access for years. It's detailed, science based and exhaustive, and, in this format, affordable. Wish there was more reference material available but I kind of understand why it's not provided; after all, you want that, you should get the full course at The Great Courses. Good Job Prof. Anding.
