The Myths of Nutrition and Fitness
- By: Dr. Anthony A. Goodman, The Great Courses
- Narrated by: Dr. Anthony A. Goodman
- Length: 3 hrs and 11 mins
- Original Recording
We all want to live long, healthy, and happy lives. But the path to achieve this-fitness and nutrition-is fraught with popular yet dangerously misleading myths about personal wellness. How do you separate the fact from the fiction? How can you recognize when you're doing your body more harm than good? Scientific knowledge has greatly expanded our understanding of how the human body works, laying many previously held ideas about fitness and nutrition to rest.

Not for me!
What would have made The Myths of Nutrition and Fitness better?
If it were aimed at the general population and not athletes.
Has The Myths of Nutrition and Fitness put you off other books in this genre?
No, I've purchased and listened to Professor Andings' lectures on nutrition which are great.
What aspect of Dr. Anthony A. Goodman’s performance might you have changed?
Nothing wrong with the performance, the majority of the material just wasn't of interest or relevant to me
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Myths of Nutrition and Fitness?
Can't remember to be honest.

Nutrition is essential to living a healthy, happy, and successful life.

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.
Good information - rather too American

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
