Description

Many people desperately want to eat the “right” foods. But eating the right foods can seem impossible because every month or so there’s a new way to eat healthy. Should we eat dairy or not? Should we eat whole grains, or avoid gluten? Is soy good or bad? The list goes on.

The message changes all the time and becomes impossible to follow, especially because no diet or trend seems to make any more sense than any other diet or trend. To make it worse, there doesn’t seem to be any one authority that we can trust.

That’s why trying to eat right is so hard for so many people—how can you “eat right” when you can’t be sure what it means to eat right in the first place?

This course will teach you a straightforward, clear, and logical way to understand human nutrition in about as much time as it takes to go to the movies.

In this course, we will cover:

  • The crazy inaccuracies in the so-called Nutrition Facts panel (in the first video)
  • The importance of healthy fats, and what healthy fats really are
  • Why those added antioxidants might not be doing you any favors
  • The truly optimal fuel for your body that you must consume each day
  • How grains actually fit into a healthy diet
  • What kind of animal products you’ll want to eat (and avoid)
  • What cleansing actually is, and what to do about it
  • Why we crave what we crave
  • What “natural food” really is and why it matters
  • The critical connection between diet and exercise
  • … and much more!

You really can finally understand what is healthy, what is not and why—all in less than three hours.

The best part of this course is that it's designed to be clear and concise, so you can understand and apply the information without needing any advanced understanding of nutrition or biology.

We’ll look at ten themed video lectures covering important topics like Fat, Grains, Fruit, and Cravings. Then we’ll look at a catch-all lecture for all the important issues that aren’t specifically related to the content covered in the other videos. Finally, we’ll review all the major points from each lecture, and close with four key actions we need to take to put these ideas in action.

The ideal student for this course is feels unsure about what it really means to eat healthy, and wants to clear up the confusion once and for all. If you're interested in finally understanding what’s healthy and what’s not, click the enroll button and get started today.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for anyone who feels confused by the constant barrage of inconsistent trends, fads, and buzzwords related to nutrition.
  • This course is not for someone who feels that he or she has a perfectly clear grasp of human nutrition.

Patrick Barrett used to love to lift weights—in fact, at one point he could bench press nearly twice his body weight. But after a neck injury in a high school wrestling match, he was told not to lift weights any more. So he started doing bodyweight exercise, and he never looked back.

After his neck injury, Patrick had to find creative ways to make the most of the types of movements he was allowed to do. Once he regained his strength and his limitations were lifted, he continued to use this creative approach in learning new ways to exercise, as well as a new approach to nutrition. Patrick hopes to give his students the guidance they need to get stronger and healthier, even if they've been frustrated by past attempts to get healthy.
