Nutrition Class on Coursera


Recommended Posts

I started taking a Nutrition MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) at Coursera yesterday. It's taught by a registered dietitian and nutrition professor in San Franscisco. It's full of all the outdated nutrition information we've all heard for so long, but now know isn't true after reading It Starts with Food. There seem to be quite a few Paleo-ish people taking the class and discussions/debates are getting fun. :-) Anyway, in case anyone else is interested in joining the debate, here's the link...the class is free:


I do feel kinda bad for the professor...she's obviously put a lot of time and effort into making this a good class, but she's spewing misinformation! She just talked about how unhealthy coconut oil is because of its saturated fat content...the nerve! ;-)
