Description

Should you avoid red meat and eat only carbs, or avoid carbs and focus on healthy fats? Will 500 crunches a day turn that belly fat into a “six pack”, or should you stick to cardio three times a week? Changing Body Composition Through Diet and Exercise presents the latest scientific research about changing your body composition, along with diet and exercise recommendations in incremental steps that men and women of all ages and fitness levels can follow. From the macro to the molecular, this course takes a science-based view to debunk common weight-loss misconceptions and help you understand your own body better than you ever have.

Led by Professor Michael Ormsbee, Assistant Professor and Interim Director of the Institute of Sports Sciences and Medicine, you will gain access to cutting-edge research that demonstrates what does - and doesn’t - work. The lessons presented in this course can change your life by helping you to feel better, perform better, and be healthier now and into your older years.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

great book with lot of information.

great book with lot of useful information. some 20% could be trimmed though. focus more on diet and exercise adhering to the book title..could have also focused on mental aspects such as stress life - by giving some significant time in yoga, paranayama and breathing exercise

No B.S. overview of a healthy lifestyle

Straight forward and scientifically supported health advice, free of profit motivations. The lecture style is dry, but the content is gold.

Interesting points

I learned some facts I was not aware of from this course. It also gave me some pointers on how to make changes in my daily life to get my weight under control. While the professor did fumble some words time to time, it was not unlistenable. I would recommend this course to someone wanting to understand nutrition and how it effects their bodies.

No hype!

A balanced course which gave the good and bad of various foods and diets. It also gave the good and bad of various exercises. The course was motivational.

Basic Knowledge

I was expecting more up to date research analysis. Ideally it would have included a major overhaul of these elementary concepts in light of breakthroughs of the genetic factors influencing body composition. I can not recall a single reference to even solid genetic research now ten years old.

It did offer basic nutrition information, good discussion of special senior requirements and a now standard review of metabolic function.

Tons of great information

Well organized presentation with lots of great information. Narrator seemed to be just reading his script so it was a bit stiff.

Good Content - Poor Narration

I know a lot about fitness, and nutrition and this course does a good job covering a lot of info. Yes, If you know a lot about this topic, then you are going to hear things you already know. Overall I did like the course organization. It was mostly review/reinforcement for me, but I did pick up a few things. I enjoyed the material. It was time well spent learning.

The narration was very difficult for me. The author of the course reads his course notes - almost written like a book. He reads very poorly. TGC should have chosen a professional narrator. He stumbles over his words, and misreads most sentences. Again, he just reads aloud very poorly.

informative

this is a great review even for me a physician who have counseled patients about weight loss there is a lot of new information in this book that is not just to Physicians but also the lay public. the speaker also was good in that he would pause slightly after each sentence to let the significance register in the mind.
