Big Pharma is all over the first hour of this book

What would have made Nutrition Made Clear better?

I've only been able to stomach about 2 hours of this book. The Author spends the first hour ripping all things holistic and natural while promoting how wonderful our government, medicines and doctors are at providing us with the only true source of good health and information. To be fair there is a lot of crap out there, but not all consumers are idiots like this Author portrays.

Would you ever listen to anything by The Great Courses again?

Maybe, I still plan on listening to the rest of this book in hopes of some unbiased material to learn from.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Professor Roberta H. Anding?

I'm pretty sure the author is bought off by big pharma, so not a chance in hell.

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

To be fair, I have only listened to the first two hours. I'm sure there are good things in the book later on. With 15 plus hours of material, it better get better.

Any additional comments?

People aren't all idiots and natural health does have a strong place in our society when performed correctly.

Excellent Nutrition book to listen to

Would you listen to Nutrition Made Clear again? Why?

Yes, I have listened to this book multiple times and will again. She made nutrition so very easy to understand and only wish she created more courses on tape or books of reference.

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

I am able to listen to this course over and over again while walking.

A perfect size piece of the nutrition pie

I loved this book. She was easy to listen too. Explained well without too much detail or being confusing. I am just a normal person not anyone working in the industry who needed this course. I wanted to understand this subject better and now I definitely do!

Nutrition Made Clear

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

Dietition's view point.

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

It was made clear that Buyer Be Ware. Definitely look at the nutrition labels of products, be aware of how many servings in a container, and how many colories/fat per serving.

What aspect of Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance would you have changed?

The performance of Professor Roberta H. Anding was exceptional.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

It was interesting to learn that vitamines and supplements are not regulated by FDA and some could be harmful to your health, and that they may have more of an ingredient (or less) than what they advertise or have on the nutrition label.

Any additional comments?

Every chapter begins with a classical music score. That made it hard to move around the book to get to a specific topic unless you remember which track contains which topic. I knocked Performance down a couple of stars because of that. There was a time when I wanted to review to a previous topic and I didn't remember where it was. So, it took listening through the music in the beginning of each track before getting to what the title is.

Most content is about economic social and people

I was expecting an actual book reading 'book'. Actually it is 7 hours worth of lectures. Most of the discussion is about people their experiences also the economic view of nutrition. It discuss is social environments poverty but not based on a book. so I found 20 percent of it to be useful information on actual nutrition. If I had known this I probably would not have bought it.

I wish I had heard this years ago

I loved the way that Roberta referred to science but made it easy to understand and practical. What she talks about can be implemented in to daily life easily. The supplement and diet industry would hate it if we all followed the sensible advice in this series. I have lost 7lbs in 4 weeks without any real effort and feel the healthiest I have ever been.

some annoying habits

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would hesitate to recommend it in the audio version because not because of the content but because the way the lecture is given

What didn’t you like about Professor Roberta H. Anding’s performance?

Every lecturer will have some habits in the way they speak and that is quite natural. Unfortunately, noone in the recording team let Professor Anding know that she uses 'and so again'''yet again' 'and again' as well as 'so keep in mind' 100s if not 1000s of times...I was determined not to get disturbed by it, but after a while it really got annoying ...sorry
