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.

Be wary of other Reviewers

Any additional comments?

Other reviewers have stated that the accompanying essential PDF was not included. I don't know if this is an issue that was present in the past and was resolved but I definitely have the accompanying PDF. I personally haven’t been able to find the accompanying PDFs in the audible phone application yet and have quite a few audio books that had them. That said if you go onto the website and browse your library the PDFs are underneath the title of your book.

Needs a side book

Any additional comments?

The information in the book is great, but Prof. Anding is mentioning the booknotes that come with the audio, and that booknotes, at least in this Audible version, don't exist. <br/>I'd love to have those references, I hope Audible and TGC agree on some kind of downloadable material available for paying customers. <br/>If you bought the book and agree with me, please agree with my review, that way it will have more chances to be read by someone with influence. Thank you.

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.

informative for all audiences

As a pharmacist i enjoyed listening to this audiobook to and from work. It covered a broad range of topics in the field of nutrition which is overlooked in many health professions, including pharmacy.
On the other hand it wasn't overly technical and i was able to focus in on it whilst driving.
i would highly recommend it to health professionals and people who would like to learn more about nutrition
