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:

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.

It's too basic. Should contain more reading material and course content for something labeled with Stanford.

Didn't provide any new information. It is comparable to informational documentary. But is nicely produced

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.

Для тех кто хоть иногда готовит и немного интересуется тем что он ест, курс полезен не будет.

More detailed content should have been covered. Many important topics were not covered.
