Very happily surprised. The course is lectured by a PHD with up to date and very specific scientific research. It does not just parrot simplistic government recommendations which is very refreshing. It's a deep dive into the science

Dialing in Sports Nutrition: What Works—And Why

It was just read off a powerpoint I did better looking at the powerpoint on my own. I felt no new information was shared and quite possibly update some statistics in it. Not really worth the price I got it. I was hoping to learn more
i have a degree in exercise and am a nurse and a great deal of this info was difficult. many instructors do not have a background that they could pass this course
