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.

    "Changed the way i look at food"
    Would you listen to Nutrition Made Clear again? Why?

    Yes, and i did. Listened to it 2 times and probably gonna refresh my knowledge again. This book gives you a complete view on how nutrition works and enables you to understand how nutrition works. After this book i have successfully modified my diet and improved my overall health.


    What about Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance did you like?

    oh i hated some of the language she used. because its so oldschool "seperate the nuts from the berries" etc. but thats just a personal preferance :)


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

    Nutrition made easy.


    Any additional comments?

    Recomend this to anyone struggling to choose a diet and wanting to loose weight.

    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.

    "Quite good and comprehensive"

    A quite good and comprehensive 'mainstream' introduction to nutrition, based on solid scientific evidence as available at the time. The format is the usual Great Courses format, i e separate lectures with an introductory snippet of Bach music, and audience applause at the end - not distracting at all, but feels quite natural. The lecturer is heard perfectly clearly throughout, and delivers the text in an engaging style.

    "Cannot recommend it highly enough."
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Clear. Comprehensive. Credible.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good practical advice for every day healthy living. Not bound to some fluffy vegan lifestyle or something like that.

    "Good information - rather too American"

    This provides a very thorough grounding on general nutrition. I liked the narrator, very clear and obviously knows what she is talking about. But it is aimed at an American audience and all the references are to American websites, research etc. Still interesting, but I would prefer an English version.

    "Simple good messages."

    Good balanced health advice with some evidence quoted to back them. Good understanding of the human body. No real dramatic or particularly interesting messages here. Quite a lot of repetition as you get to the later chapters.

    Story
    "Nutritious Course"
    If you could sum up Nutrition Made Clear in three words, what would they be?

    Changed My Life


    Which character – as performed by Professor Roberta H. Anding – was your favourite?

    Herself


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook seems well balanced and a pleasure to listen to. A lady with rich experience guides you through the myths of diet, and takes a scientific approach which, of course, is always open to review. Well worth it, and something on which I could make positive steps in my life.

    I particularly like the integration of exercise and nutrition in the thinking- an holistic approach built on reductionist building blocks. Scientific in places, but Roberta guides you through.

    A tonic.

    Story
    "Very informative, too much for the layperson?"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Some friends, yes.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    n/a


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Could you see Nutrition Made Clear being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sure some people would find this book fascinating, personally the book had simply far too much detail on vitamins and minerals in particular. I wanted to learn about building a healthy diet not the minutia of how many iu of every vitamin and mineral.

    "Excellent!"
    Would you listen to Nutrition Made Clear again? Why?

    Have listened twice as there is a lot of information to process.


    What about Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance did you like?

    No nonsense delivery, facual with enough science to keep me interested. A really comprehensive introduction to nutrition.


    Any additional comments?

    Irritating that the accompanying 'work-book' referred to in the lectures is not available, It's pretty impossible to remember all the information and would be good to have reference material

    Story
    "Great help in clarifying how nutrition and fitness work"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Nutrition Made Clear to be better than the print version?

    Not sure about the printed book, however one good thing about audiobooks is that you can listen on the go, while driving or on public transportation - and it's easy to pick up exactly where you left off, and to review.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The clarity and simplicity, the match with everyday real-life situations; and the adequate amount of data - not too much, not too little.


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

    The human touch - her voice conveys that she's actually been there and done it, both personally and professionally.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really, the topic is vast and needs to be understood and meditated over as you go; the division in chapters made a lot of sense and enabled to sediment things before moving on to the next chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is clearly US-centric, would appreciate a sequel/companion book more focused on EU nutritional habits, probably less prone to supplements and more into carbs - at least in some geographies.
