Hack your diet: Using nutrition science to live healthier, longer, and diet-free

The keys to a strong, vibrant life are found in three fields: sleep, fitness, and diet. Advice can somewhat vary for sleep and fitness, but when it comes to diet, opinions are the Wild West. This course explores the nutrition science behind dieting, avoiding fads. Over ten days, you will learn the fundamentals of what comprises a healthy diet, backed by science. You will gain insight into how the body processes the nutrients that keep you living long, going strong, and harnessing the best health possible.
