Nutrition Made Clear
Nutrition Made Clear is an invitation to a health journey; it is an inspirational, practical, hands-on guide to understanding nutrition science and how what we eat and drink influences our bodies and our lives. We begin with an eye-opening examination of why we consume what we eat and how we obtain nutrition information. We then take a close look at our digestive tract, which is at the heart of our bodies. We next go through the key building elements of food and nutrition, such as protein, carbs, fat, water, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and how they play important roles in a balanced diet. The lectures then shift to themes that are vital to the American public: the dietary ties to major chronic illnesses and disorders including diabetes, hypertension, obesity, heart disease, and digestive tract disorders. The lectures are packed with useful information on these disorders as well as practical tips for lowering our chance of contracting them. The lectures are not intended to preach or chastise, but rather to give a sensible but practical approach to nutrition. Progress, not perfection, is one of the nicest and most inspiring pieces of advice in this course. In other words, even little adjustments in our food and exercise habits can have a significant impact on our health. Later lectures examine the benefits and drawbacks of sugar alternatives and fat substitutes, organic and traditional meals, and herbal remedies. We also discuss the significance of food safety and how to read food labels (they are more difficult and crucial than you think!). We examine the most recent sorts of items on supermarket shelves (probiotics, prebiotics, and functional foods) and uncover fascinating new advances in nutrition research. In line with its purpose of being relevant and helpful to everyone, the course includes everything we need to design diet and fitness routines that are not only effective but also long-term. After all, good food and nutrition choices are not fast fixes marked by hunger and deprivation; rather, they are lifetime choices that may lead to a longer and better life for everyone of any age.
