Nutrition 101: Understanding the Science & Practice of Eating Well

      With changes in nutrition advice and conflicting messages overwhelming people everywhere they go, consumers are often confused about what to believe and how to eat. Jamie Pope does an excellent job teaching adults how to decipher nutrition information, learn the basics of how our bodies work and what to look for when trying to eat better. The course is broken up into 16 23–25-minute audio lectures in which Pope explains basic nutrition concepts and how they translate into the real world. The course is intermixed with anecdotes of Pope's experiences, from teaching students at Vanderbilt University about nutrition to working with individuals on their health goals. She also adds discussions of relevant trends and how they relate to the topic. The course is well organized, evidenced-based, and intended to review basic nutrition information rather than giving dietary advice.
