Learn About Good Nutrition

Can You Really Learn Good Nutrition in 8 Days?
by Robert Adams, CPT, Head Fitness Expert

When my colleague and friend, Dr. John Berardi, dropped me an email the other day letting me know about his new nutrition course, I admit I had some doubts.

Don't get me wrong, I like JB and respect his work, but I was skeptical about the course itself. 'Body Transformation with Precision Nutrition -- in 8 Days' -- indeed. Eight days?

But I'll read anything, and I'm always looking for new ways to approach and teach nutrition, so I decided to give it a look. And in the end, I really enjoyed it.

The course starts with three consecutive online questionnaires, which were cool - they get right to the point, highlighting your weaknesses and offering solutions. Even just reading the questions called attention to some of the areas I could improve upon, and I know this stuff.

Each lesson offers a concise, no-nonsense message, one that beginners and experts alike will benefit from hearing. John does a great job of putting aside the fads and getting down to the point. He makes no mistake about telling you exactly what will lead to failure, and what will lead to success.

John also does a great job of going beyond the actual food to talk about how to ensure you actually follow the plan. What good is a great diet if you don't follow it?

And best of all, he tells you exactly what rules to follow, in no uncertain terms. His 10 Rules cover everything from what to eat to when to eat it. Very good stuff, which I didn't expect in such a short course.

Now, nothing's perfect and this course is no exception. My one gripe is that I wish there was a little more detail on meal plans, perhaps a recipe or two, or some examples. But in fairness, you can get a good idea from the rules and lessons, and JB covers meals and meal plans extensively in Precision Nutrition (his superb nutrition program, which I highly recommend). So it's a small, forgivable gripe.

All in all, this is an excellent little course, and in eight days you'll learn more about what really works nutritionally than most people do in a lifetime.

The bottom line is that if you're not in the shape you want to be, and you want to learn how to turn things around with nutrition, I strongly recommend that you check the course out yourself. It's available for free at: The Precision Nutrition 8-Day Course
