À propos du cours

Around the world, we find ourselves facing global epidemics of obesity, Type 2 Diabetes and other predominantly diet-related diseases. To address these public health crises, we urgently need to explore innovative strategies for promoting healthful eating. There is strong evidence that global increases in the consumption of heavily processed foods, coupled with cultural shifts away from the preparation of food in the home, have contributed to high rates of preventable, chronic disease. In this course, learners will be given the information and practical skills they need to begin optimizing the way they eat. This course will shift the focus away from reductionist discussions about nutrients and move, instead, towards practical discussions about real food and the environment in which we consume it. By the end of this course, learners should have the tools they need to distinguish between foods that will support their health and those that threaten it. In addition, we will present a compelling rationale for a return to simple home cooking, an integral part of our efforts to live longer, healthier lives. View the trailer for the course here:

Foods and us have a relationship, and this course defines that relationship. Personally, this course provides positive experience for me in regards of food, meal preparation, and eating in moderation.

Decent introductory course.

But I expected more on the plate.

Feels like a tiny snack rather than a wholesome meal.

5 stars for clarity and effort. Videos concise and clear.

0 star for content, too basic- definitely expected more.

good for beginners. however, not very informative. Mostly some general things we already know are reminded to us.

Too much cooking related contents, and often seems repetitive. The first 2 lessons were good and useful.

It's strange to see non-healthy recipes after recommendation of mostly plant-based diet in the course.

Great class, but a little shorter than I would like and similar to Dr. Adams other Coursera offering.

It was an overview to understand food habits. I think the cookery part can be avoided in the course.
