Nutrition basics v2

Lesson 1 – Food as Medicine

The ancient idea that food is medicine has moved to the forefront of healthcare today. We are in the midst of an epidemic of diet-related illnesses and research is uncovering just how powerful dietary change can be.

Lesson 2 – Contains Calories, Fat, Protein and Sugar

Some of the most controversial areas of nutrition are those surrounding calories, fats, protein and sugar. We bust the cholesterol myth, expose trans fats, explore why a calorie is not a calorie, examine plant vs. animal protein, and uncover the effects of sugar on the body.

Lesson 3 – Secrets of the Healthiest and Longest Lived People

Traditional dietary practices are informing modern nutrition in ways that are insightful and immediately relevant in the modern world. Why do some cultures enjoy remarkably healthy and very long lives? We explore the nutritional science behind their wonderful food cultures.
