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.

    "Must listen!"

    We are what we eat. There always will be a friend or a relative who are happy to give you advise on what you should eat (along with how you should live), there always will be a new hip diet, there always will be a new research that chocolate helps to loose weigh, and so on. This lecture will arm you with the science behind food, and help to look critically at all food related talks around you.

    "Obvious bias - lack of critical analysis"
    What would have made Nutrition Made Clear better?

    It would be improved with more balance. Many of the examples related to athletes. I did not buy this audiobook to learn that sports drinks are good when I run marathons. I found some areas well covered but any mention of low carb diets was dripping with disdain. This seems to be a blind spot for the presenter. Conflating ketoacidosis with ketoses was disingenuous and misleading. Different people respond to different interventions and eliminating one area of inquiry with little explanation was frustrating at best.


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

    The thing that would have made the course easier to listen to would be a rewrite of the script. Certain words and phrases were repeated so often that is became difficult to hear anything else. The phrase "it is important to remember" proceeded so many statements that it became impossible to know what was actually important. If it was all important, than the phase was truly meaningless. The other repeated phrase was "keep in mind". I even heard it twice in two consecutive sentences. I bought the book and I'm listening, being told constantly to keep some thought in mind was just distracting. These phrases sounded like a nervous tick similar to "um" or "you know".


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment - I wanted clear information on nutrition. I seemed to get a diet for football players.

    "Super informative!"

    I loved this series. I've been trying to work out and diet for years and I'm working on integrating what she teaches in her lectures. Only complaint is audible doesn't provide the guide she references in the lectures.

    "Good information"

    Roberta Anding clearly knows her stuff and cares about it too, and it's always a pleasure to listen to someone teach what they love. The material was surprisingly technical, which I personally liked, and has made me try to modify my eating habits.

    Some of the material's pacing can be a little uneven, with a topic or new concept being introduced for only a sentence or two before moving on. But there are long-standing themes and lessons that come up again and again to form a sort of thesis and main takeaways, which to me is most important.

    "Basic Book - just a little over common knowledge"
    What would have made Nutrition Made Clear better?

    If you've never inquired about anything related to the idea of diet and nutrition this is a well balanced write up. Its clearly written. But anyone with a basic knowledge or who has any sort of interest in nutrition, you'd probably just flip though this book in 1 min and put it back on the shelf.


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

    Its clearly written. But just more basic than I was expecting.

    "Not focused on real problems"
    What disappointed you about Nutrition Made Clear?

    The audiobook focuses on anecdotes of people who overdid basic nutrition advice. It doesn't focus on the very real problem of too much sugar and carbohydrates. Instead you get anecdotes of people who eat too much fiber and protein, and don't eat enough salt and carbohydrates. Really??? Is this the problem with the standard American diet???


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

    Yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
