The nutrition starter course helped me a lot in reviewing all about the basics of nutrition, I personally loved it and I recommend everyone to take up this short and very informative course.

It's all free

Fantastic free nutrition course, loved it!

I love nutrition and I want to start a career in this field. This free nutrition course is just what I needed. I am so glad I found it! It was super fun to complete, and I learned things I haven't thought about before. Next, I will be taking more training on nutrition and hopefully start helping my own nutrition clients. It's very exciting! Thanks to the health sciences academy!!

Great COURSE to start.I really enjoy the simplicity of the course.

A good course thats offered 100% for free

I found this course completely by accident while surfing online and decided what the heck why not. I am not disappointed I was able to take some notes on things I didn't know before this course. I will happily recommend this to anyone looking for a start to their journey.


This course is beneficial to anyone whether they already know a fair bit about nutrition or if they are a complete beginner. It teaches you a lot including how to correctly read food labels and how to calculate the fat content, about superfoods, and learning what fat free foods and reduced fat foods actually mean. Really good course and easy to understand, highly recommend.

good knowledge

Great information highlighting the important health benefits and good nutrition from Supper foods. thank you

Enjoy this helpful course

This is a very beneficial course for anyone interested to improve his life and his family's health. It is very user friendly and well documented. The assessments and questionnaires make it even more interesting for people, like me, that we don't know the details of a healthy diet.

Nutrition course

I am so happy to start this course

An beneficial course for everyone

I am on an intermittent fasting where I have food for 8 hours and on fasting for 16 hours daily. I feel that people need to understand some basic knowledge of body function and its relationship with food. It is my opinion that inappropriate food consumptions are the primary cause of many illnesses that are preventable. The body immune system is an important component that depends largely on the type of food consumed. With the current stressful life that one is going through and without subject on food in our education system, many people will encounter health issue as they get older. I am preparing to gain as much knowledge in health care through proper food so that I can start a social enterprise to educate the public to achieve better health from proper food consumption. Thank you for providing this free online course.

 by NANTAMBI ASIA on The Health Sciences Academy


i have greatly enjoyed the session basically the content.i have discovered and learnt how to balance my meals daily for a healthy lifestyle.i humbly recommend this programme to my fellow Ugandans out there. i really would love to join a nutrition firm inorder to do nutrition education and counselling.nutrition is undermined in Uganda and few nationals are aware of its basics which has led to a huge number of nutrition related consequences basically malnutrition especially in the rural districts including my home districts. i want to acquire skills in nutrition basically to work with the organisations around to fight the vice of malnutrition.

 by Sanjay Saha on The Health Sciences Academy

Foods are basic and essential need of human. Not only that foods are basic right of human also. So many persons, companies use foods to make only their revenue without giving any proper knowledge, information regarding the proper needs of foods. That's why so many diseases are their. Obesity is becoming a major disease as a result of greediness of some peoples and some companies.

Foods are not only carve our hunger, it's proper uses provide us diseases free healthy life. But a few doctor, few medicine company provide the proper diet related awareness.If people become disease free then a drastic fall of revenue will happen for those unethical doctors and companies.

Being disease free is so simple by maintaining proper diet chart.

Being a financial analyst I found many people who become insolvent to pay the bill of doctors, hospitals,medicine and related cause. So they need break their entire savings for those unwanted reasons.

So I want to create awareness for common people regarding proper diet and the precious knowledge what I gathered or will gather later on from you and your team.

Essential Information for all

This is a quick yet externally informative course with numerous links to further develop your knowledge, or you can just stick to the course info, even so this information alone should be common knowledge by all. if this was achieved then health issues such as heart disease and obesity would be drastically reduced saving life, money and resources, and that is just putting it plainly.

A great course and for FREE what more can you do!

Starter Nutrition Course

I love the factual

content of the Starter Nutrition Course. The power of food is so exciting, that I found the information easy to consume. Understanding the benefits of superfoods motivates me to incorporate more of them into my personal diet. The medical world could never compensate for poor individual diet choices. With that said, I have many friends who are concerned and interested in assuming personal responsibility for their families' health. I will definitely recommend this course to them. In my current careers as hairdresser and fitness instructor, my clients share their ailments and health goals with me. I am certain that with more education I could realize my passion to help them in a potential part time business in nutrition.

After completing the test course I am more determined to continue future with course studies covering supplement nutrition. There is so much to learn and I want to have the opportunity to learn more so I can help others understand the importance of healthy thinking, eating, and lifestyle. I want to help others eat healthier and live longer. The Science Academy is definitely making this goal more obtainable.

 by KIMANI JOSEPH MACHARIA on The Health Sciences Academy


The scientific delivery of materials is awesome and leaves someone yawning for more. In fact i was ready to go on and on with these fascinating nutritional facts.

The course made drastic changes in my life and to those clients who seek nutritional advice from me.

i cannot forget the juicy mails which made a turn around in my life as a nutritionist, the gifts were awesome. congratulations for that.


True to your welcome message i did learn that scientific facts should come from scientist themselves. The materials in this course are purely scientific, enriching and factual.


This course is a must recommend to my friends, students and my clients. leave alone the course but most importantly the Health Science Academy Website.


My sole personal aspiration is to become one of the greatest Public Health Nutritionist who rely on true unbiased scientific nutritional research.

True to my aspiration i have enrolled to the course- Nutrition for cancer prevention and longevity.

Its amazing, full of classic information and a no turn-back.


I wish that my review will be the best and be considered for the scholarship award.

Thumbs up to the academy scientist.

Nutrition essential tips

It is a amazing academy.... Iam really happy because being part of this academy.... It give a good tips and information about the foods and all food based subjects....it is very good.ittis helps for all

Brilliant starter

I particularly enjoyed, the way the course was presented from start to finish. I liked that at the end of each unit, there was a practical assignment. This is how l came to learn about the ‘weight gain probability’ I hadn’t heard of this form of scaling before until this course, so this was brilliant to finally discover. I generally found the formatting of the information to be clear, straight forward and really allowing the newly acquired knowledge to easily be retained through the short activities.

Right from the start, I felt very welcomed by the team's concise and very informative emails. The best part about it all, is that the information is scientifically backed. I would recommend this starter course to those that may have an interest in nutritional science and would like to explore this industry further and in turn help themselves and others. This is exactly what l would like to do myself; to learn about nutrition and help myself and others by passing on this knowledge, all in all, eventually promoting health and wellbeing for many.

Many thanks for providing us with this information.

Starter Nutrition Course Review

This is a great introduction into nutrition and focuses alot on a fundamental issue within society- obesity. Jamie Oliver's TED speech was in particular inspiring and addresses the key issues: home, education, and the high street. All these work in hand in hand and the time for change is now. I believe I am fairly educated in regards to health and nutrition and lead an active lifestyle but there is still a vast amount of information you can learn through this. The articles are extremely interesting with debates on gluten, flavonoid foods etc. For those trying to lose body fat, there is a questionnaire about your food choices which are interesting. I would like to know the research and thought-process behind selecting those particular questions. Anyway, it's a great way to further my knowledge of the health and fitness industry- something I am keen to go into.

 by Stefanie Gadow on The Health Sciences Academy

I enjoyed Jamie's video a lot. He is so passionate about educating children about food and cooking, it is really inspiring. I would highly recommend this course to my family and friends.

An insightful look into nutrition

As I was in my dorm room looking for new things to learn I googled up a nutritional course that was free. This course offered by thehealthsciencesacademy.org showed up and I clicked on it. Wanting to improve my diet because I powerlift/body-build during dorming in college, I found this course to provide an insightful look into nutrition. This course covered the bare basics on feeding your body with the right foods. This course further motivated me to look up more nutrition courses.

 by HELEN KOOLBANIS on The Health Sciences Academy
Starter Nutrition Course

I really found it interesting how to calculate the fats in the foods, the amazing Superfoods on this planet and how they protect the immune system. I would highly recommend this online website to whoever is interested in the Health Industry or for their personal growth.

Im so excited to further my knowledge and head in the fitness and health industry.

Lifelong Journey

I enjoyed the focus on superfoods as they are big focus in the healthfood industry right now. It was interesting to learn about the method of calculating calories and this will be very helpful to me! Ultimately my family and I are always on a quest to learn more about ideal healthy living. My father has Marphan's Syndrome (a genetic condition which is hereditary) and really struggles with his health. Most people with this illness don't make it as long as he has and naturally I want to improve my health to combat the aspects of the condition that I inherited from him. My family shares all the knowledge we have gathered over the years and we help people in rural areas have access to both the knowledge and the necessary supplies to live a healthy lifestyle.

How to get the right nutrition?

I have been always very interested and keen on eating healthy; however living in Sri Lanka it has been very difficult to find a nutrition course and I am very glad that I finally found the Health Sciences Academy Nutrition Starter Course and to have completed it successfully now.

I enjoyed the weight gain assessment and the course contents the most because I have been trying lose weight for months and would even skip meals but the weight gain assessment has given me a whole new perspective on eating habits. For sure I now know what I should be avoiding and consuming to be on a safe zone and to get the right nutrients, also I am going to stick to the 10 healthy eating rules!

I have always wondered about food labels when buying foods in the supermarkets and have never paid much attention to the values but this course has taught me a lot about the calculations and has made me understand what they really mean and how important it is to look out for them. Usually, I would go for the ‘LOW FAT’ option when I go shopping but now I have learnt that it is not healthy as it can have high content of sugar.

Last but not the least; Jamie’s video was an eye opener! A lot of information was shared in a very convincing way, for instance how important it is to teach the kids about healthy foods and about the processed foods (I mean the amount of sugar that was spilled!).

I would definitely recommend this course to my friends and family because through Jamie's video I discovered that obesity is a growing factor in heart disease and death rates. I believe that by recommending this course it will create awareness on this issue and probably can even save a few lives!

By completing this course I have gain the confidence to do advance studies on nutrition and health. I hope to do more courses wih the Health Sciences Academy!

Thank you.

Best Health Academy

I think that this is the best health academy I've ever tried. I've searched and tried a lot of health courses in the internet but none have provided with so much integrity and great content. It's very rich in its contents and based more on scientific evidences and not just on mere google searches. Jamie Oliver is really very inspiring and I agree that it's high time that the health education in the school should be given consideration for the sake of the future generation and the current healthcare of our community. I would definitely recommend all the courses to all the people open for learning these things. It has been my number one dream to share and build a community of empowered and whole people by using nutrition as my medium. I'd like to bring this academy to my country Philippines and become the catalyst of change.

Introduction to Nutrition

I was very impressed with the quality and interactive polls.

Great info, for a short introduction and it taught me that there is just so much we don't know about the food we eat every day. I can't wait to continue my journey into nutrition and teach others

 by Mark Duff on The Health Sciences Academy

Superb information. I wish I had done this a long time ago.

Started Nutrition

This gave an excellent overview of key weightloss issues with a good mix of nutrition, psychology, habit change and societal analysis. There were links to a load of extra material that were real bonuses. The quiz at the end could have been more challenging as you actually learn loads of material that isn't assessed.

 by Angela on The Health Sciences Academy
Short but sweet!

The weight gain assessment reminded me that I really need to work on myself. I tend to mostly take care of my kids diet more than I do mine, so it's time to step up and take care of myself too! After my mother got diagnosed with cancer, I began doing a lot of research and learned many many things. This course showed me that there's still so much to learn, and I wish my mother was still around so that I could have helped her even more. However, through her I learned, not everyone wants to be helped!!!!! That is, for me, one of the most important lessons to learn. I am excited though, to begin my career change and officially be able to help people. Like this I will find people who will WANT to be helped, and success is surely a guarantee then. Once I have surrounded myself with the right people on this journey, I am sure I will find people who will enjoy this course just as much as I did.

Brilliant as a Starting Point

Good printable information, short exam but good to give you a bit of confidence to go on to go deeper into the subject.

 by JAY WILCOX on The Health Sciences Academy

This course is a great segway into your quest for nutrition. The TED talk may open up your eyes. My favorite part may have been learning about the "Super foods."

 by Mark Davis on The Health Sciences Academy
Useful Information

This course is comprehensive and contains much useful information not only to help yourself but to start to learn to help others. I am hoping to start a new career as a Health and Nutrition Coach, this course has encouraged me to look further into this. I would rather the course was online rather than having to print so many pages but I can see the advantage of having it on paper as you can easily show others. I might opt for the paper version of the Coach course I want to do.

Awesome Course

This was a great intro course, full of information and easy to comprehend! Jamie Oliver was spot on in his TED Talks, obviously a very compassionate guy with lots to say on the topic!

After watching the video I will be including my own kids much more in our meal prep and educate them on what good food really is!

Can't wait to jump into another course!

 by Caitlin on The Health Sciences Academy
Great Starter Course!

I would definitely recommend this course as it is an excellent opportunity for individuals with little experience. It is very informative and has given me knowledge to begin making healthy choices and to educate others.The course is great way to motivate and inspire people to make healthy choices.

Awesome! Thank you.

I enjoyed the sample free course and would love to access more. I'm currently a personal trainer through the NSCA with the strength and conditioning specialist certificate and a bachelor's in Nutrition and a Master's in educational technology. It's nice to have access to a variety of sources, however, I am unwilling to pay for any courses until I get a larger sample of some of the more complex coursework that may be offered.

Informative, quick and inspirational

Packed with a lot of information and yet very quick to read and assimilate. Simple, easy-to-understand. Inspiring.

Making the change to live my passion and help others.

Hello from New Zealand,

I have just completed your online free starter nutrition course, and as I had hoped, I am now even more healthily-hungry to carry on in this positive direction in my life to gain knowledge and qualifications I am able to use to help others make the changes needed in their lives.

I am extremely passionate about health and using food to prevent illness and disease.

I want to be able to gain the knowledge I need through The Health Sciences Academy's Diploma in Nutritional Therapy to practice this passion in my daily life as a career, help people change their lives for the better through food, and to contribute to the world, communities and individuals in a positive life changing way that I feel has become essential.

From what I have experienced so far through online learning with The Health Sciences Academy I would highly recommend others to also educate themselves through your courses. I found all the information provided relevant, interactive and delivered fluidly making it easy to follow and retain. I would love to be able to continue learning in this way with The Health Sciences Academy and pour myself into gaining the knowledge needed to live my passion of helping others through health and food.

Thank you for your time and I am very much looking forward to hearing back from you and the possibilities ahead.

Inspirational Introduction

There are so many online courses available today and very few of them offer some insight to what the course is about and how the course will be presented. Personalizing the course with the weight gain assessment is a personal motivator for anyone to improve their lifestyle and the "life-time" access Health Sciences Academy offers is invaluable. Also good to know that such an institution promotes pioneers like Jamie Oliver in their courses as many of the online courses are outdated. What I have seen in this introduction course was fresh and intriging.


The simplicity of this course provides the reader with easy to understand informative facts on nutrition, thus motivating and inspiring people to enhance their nutritional intake.

 by Vikki Capon on The Health Sciences Academy
The Health Sciences Academy Starter Nutrition Course

 by Nicholas James Vanderwal on The Health Sciences Academy

This starter course is an excellent opportunity for individuals with very little experience to gain a great foundation of knowledge to begin making healthy choices and continue to educate themselves in health and nutrition.

 by Aswathy on The Health Sciences Academy
Super Duper

This is a very nice abridged version of Nutrition course, helps to refresh many simple yet important things,would suggest many of my friends to take up this one.


I think it is great to motivate others in making wiser choices concerning food, nutrition and exercise. The more we educate people and provide fresh, health foods for all, the better for a strong body and mind.

Diet for better health

Such a valuable course!

I've experienced many knowledge about food and healthy diet that I have never realized how ii is important before. Even though, I also studied at school, reading newspapers, magazines but It is not enough for me.

This course is designed properly and It is very easy, clear and specific for self-learning. For whom don't know anything about nutrition can take this course. It started from basic to intermediate level. I wish I could accessed more free online courses like this in the future.

Thanks very much for The Heath Sciences Academy team for giving this free course!

 by alice kwissa on The Health Sciences Academy

This website and online course is amazing! It educates you all aspects on nutrition, yet in a clear and simple way. I would recommend this course to everyone! Thank you for this opportunity.

The Awesome Introductory Session

This course was very enjoyable. It was so well organized and the polls were awesome. The Weight Gain assessment was an eyeopener. The calorie calculations blew my mind.

Jamie Olivers video echo how I feel about these issues.

My discovery was that of the Bee Pollen, wow.

I would be sharing it with many of my friends who would be interested.

Excited to get on to the advanced topics.

 by Trust mashazhu on The Health Sciences Academy

I enjoyed the polls and i looking forward to share with my wife about this course as we are all health oriented.


I would recommend this course to anyone even if its only to make you realise what is wrong.

I thought that i would give this a go because although i knew my lifestyle was pretty bad i also thought I'm not really obese or unhealthy however as soon as you start this and answer truthfully i realised that i was actually much worse than i even thought i was. Using some of the things that i have read and understood i am going to use this information and keep developing my understanding on the topic of nutrition and change my lifestyle so that i can enjoy my life better with my family. Thank you very much health science academy

 by Rizal Ang on The Health Sciences Academy
Just unbelievable

It's unbelievable... why has nobody (until Alex Ruani) shared us about this before??? Thank you Alex, this course is simple, fun and effective.

It was entertaining yet nerve racking at the start (the weight assessment), also I really like how you structure the whole content, begin with assessment and end with a bang (Jamie's video).

I have one tiny recommendation, how about adding "Top ten worst food to avoid" list after or before the ten super food. It would be a good take away for us not only to know what food to consume more (i.e. superfood) and also what to avoid.

Great value, this is a great course Alex, awesome!

 by Aman O'Connor on The Health Sciences Academy
perfect for a first course..

Very good starter course...

Well prepared with all the information that you may need

 by Okeeffe Wellington on The Health Sciences Academy
The Journey I Took On

I enjoyed the the polls, results were surprising also the outline of the weight assessment was eye opening as to how you can progress to your goals. Mine is a working progress.

Jamie Olivers video got me thinking about my entire family, immediate, relatives, church etc.

My number one discovery is the level of vitamin C in the Camu Berry. Its one of my best fruits ever and now i can see the importance of it more.

I am talking to my wife to get her to sign up for it and i am sharing with friends as well.

My Aspiration is to progress through each course and become and all rounder in helping myself and as much people as possible i can help.

I am implementing a lot of these into my life that i can have my own experience and testimony as to what the Health Science Academy as done for me.

Ottimo corso

Ottimo corso di formazione gratuito, ricco di informazioni essenziali

 by Ericka Conner on The Health Sciences Academy
Great for an introductory course!

A quick and efficient course that definitely covers the basics of nutrition in an efficient manner. All of the content was clear and concise, and there were a lot of great visuals (i.e. pictures, TED Talk video, etc). My only recommendation would be to have a link (or a separate slide/PDF) that individuals can click on to be taken to the actual study/studies that you are referring to. I personally like to look at the scientific research articles myself to see how valid the studies are which you are referring to.

 by Francois Pretorius on The Health Sciences Academy
A step in the right direction.

Even if the course was set to be basic, I could still learn much and confirm things that I thought was just hear say. The weight gain assessment was also a good tool for some personal introspection. Definitely something that I would recommend for any one that is thinking of going in the nutritionist direction as this will give you and over cite of many of the things that are yet to come.

 by Roxana E. Gonzalez Lara on The Health Sciences Academy
Everybody should take this course!

Thank you for sharing this knowledge with us!

This course changed my perception about food in every single way. I got ideas about how to improve my family?s eating habits and I feel somehow responsible of sharing this information with people I know and whoever would like to learn about it.

Thank you very much!

As a doctor I found this introductory course very useful for everyone and arouse the interest for further studies

Pleasantly surprised

Great course - pleasantly surprised and found the self-assessment portions to be incredibly useful for gauging knowledge in the field. I was surprised at how much I learned and how generous this course was with providing so much quality free information. I'm curious to see what the more advanced courses offer.

Pleasantly surprised

Great course! I was surprised at the amount of free information provided. I considered myself quite knowledgable in the field of nutrition but still managed to learn quite a bit of new information. The course's opportunity for self-assessment provided made such a big difference. I would certainly recommend this to others and am now even more curious to know what the more advanced courses are like.

A Course to Be Shared Across the Planet

I was inspired by how accessible the course was, and how supported it was by both evidence and practical tools. I really enjoyed Jamie's Ted Talks video which was informative as well as a kick in the pants to share the knowledge and make the changes we know are essential. My number one discovery while taking this course, is that nutritional therapy is the career change direction I've been searching for, to assist people more directly. Superfoods and good nutrition are what helped me beat stage IV metastasized squamous cell lymphoma; everyone should know this. Food is the centre of who we are and how we affect the planet; change our nutritional habits and we'll change the wellbeing of the world. I will definitely recommend this course to friends, family and colleagues.

I enjoyed most of it especially about the Super Foods. It was also interesting to work out how much fat, protein and carbs were in my fruit and fibre. Lots of carbs, think I might change my breakfast cereal. I love Jamie and how passionate he is about food. I totally agree with him and am behind it when it comes to educating people to cook again and the welfare of animals and food that is wasted. I have also discovered green tea again and am drinking it instead of normal tea which I struggle to drink without sugar. I would recommend this course to friends and family. Even if they do not wish to learn more, I think it would give them something to think about and perhaps make changes in their lifestyle. I am very excited to learn about nutrition, health and am fascinated by our human bodies and how theywork and how everything affects and our health and well-being.

Awesome Course, very insightful

This is an ultimate beginner course in simple words to understand the essence of healthy eating habits. It taught me step by step the things required to be done by me, along with the changes in lifestyle and eating habits. I would recommend all my friends and family members to go through this course at least once to understand the actual reality of their lifestyles. I enjoyed every step of this course, it enhanced my knowledge and inspired me to be a healthy individual.

An excellent course. Would recommend.

 by Kirsten Lackie on The Health Sciences Academy
Perfect beginner course

This course was a great beginner course! I love that learning the basics of nutrition are also incorporated with how to learn how to improve one's own lifestyle as well as help others. I have shared the Weight Gain Probability quiz with some of my family members already and cannot wait to continue my education and help others!

The Basics of Nutrition

I really loved the short course. Made my eyes open to how little we know about nutrition and how alarming it is that we have been kept in the dark for so long. I am a certified yoga instructor and a professional dancer. For the longest time I was led to believe exercise alone was sufficient to keep the body healthy and slim, so I always tell my students workout now so you can eat a lot later. Thanks to the short course I will be able to inform my students how to maintain healthy lives outside of my yoga and dance classes.

I really enjoy the way the health and sciences academy teach. I have tried a few courses before this one but have enjoyed the health and science the most because of their scientific approach rather than hearsay and whats popular online. I also love that i can take a course at my own pace and i will access to my course for a lifetime just in case i need to brush up on anything. i would totally recommend this to everyone!

I'm considering a change in career into health & nutrition. This online mini introduction was great. You test your knowledge along the way which helps you to retain what you are learning. The additional learning material was extremely interesting too. I am now considering enrolling for the clinical weight management course. I would recommend this course to anyone. We should all have a little more knowledge about food & good nutrition.

Wake up call

My life was chaos. Then my wife was diagnosed with a heart disease at the age of 30 and I had an epiphany. I had to do something. I chose nutrition and my life became more chaotic. I had loads of information that I couldn't assimilate because I didn't know how. This course has given me the power to understand nutrition. I'm still confused but I want to understand more, to learn more and to teach others about the benefits of having a balanced, proper diet.

 by Sandra Butler on The Health Sciences Academy
Food for thought

This is exactly what I needed to start me on a new journey. I want to serve people and bring back vital health in Mind, Body and Soul. I needed a nutrition course in the UK, with all the science attached, no jargon, good humour and passion. The Jamie Oliver video was passion on a plate! I had never heard of Camu berries so will be on Amazon shortly to buy them! Thank you - I will be recommending this course to all my like minded friends. Health Coaching is a growing industry in America and we need to be on board. It is a wonderful new career opportunity and I am so looking forward to learning more then teaching it in my Healing Centre I'm hoping to open next year on the Isle of Arran in Scotland.


It is a very interesting course to do and you gain more knowledge, I will definitely recommend it to a friend.

 by carmen on The Health Sciences Academy
knowledge is power

Such a positive and informative free course. I would definately incourage my friends to take it. This has left me wanting more. Just the fact that i now know more people who are sick with cancer or various ailments and knowing we can change it with our diet has made me change my eating habits and want to teach this information to anyone willing to listen. I found Jamies video very touching and informative. I have learnt so much just by taking the time to do this free course. Thank you for this opportunity.

A good Start!

I see a lot of patients with IBS and low grade inflammation including many of the milder symptoms of things like Crohn's, Ankylosing Spondylitis or Rheumatoid arthritis. I'm convinced that much of this can be helped by diet and lifestyle alone, rather than hefty doses of painkillers and weekly visits to therapists like Osteopaths. Since these patients blood tests often come back negative from the labs, they are dropped from the NHS support system which is so disheartening for them.

I did this taster course because I would like to be able to help and advise these patients. I was interested to follow the links to some of the extra material and I liked the discussions that follow after the articles. I was also pleased to see that Cacao is a number 1 superfood. (I love chocolate).

Starter Nutrition Course Review

The content knowledge is the highlight of this course, as it is holistic in nature—covering: personal assessments, energy basics, and nutritional needs. The number one discovery for was the ‘Super Foods.’ This course covered the why behind each super food, while seamlessly integrating facts about each super food. I have already recommended the course to several colleagues and friends. My personal aspiration is to simply be of service by helping, especially elementary students and senior adults, on the benefits of proper nutrition.

Eye opening course!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this course! I really enjoyed the information on why vitamins and minerals etc are so important in our diet. The video from Jamie Oliver was a huge eye opener and has really sparked a passion in me to help others. I would say my number 1 discovery was the facts in Jamie Oliver's video...we hold the cure to obesity yet not many people know it. I've already recommended this course to about 5 other people before I even completed it! Because of this course I really want to pursue further nutrition courses to broaden my knowledge as a personal trainer and help more people

Changing others lifestyle

I really loved the weight gain assessment and number one discovery is that raw chocolate

is actually the highest antioxidant on the planet.I would love to learn more and implement what I learnt first in my life and then to 1000's of other people ( especially children) in need of it.

Changing others lifestyle because that is what it is.


Just the Beginning

A really insightful nutrition course. It's a great way to start your journey to learning more about nutrition. I really enjoyed the polls after the readings. It gave you a good insight into what other people think. The course is also very practical. Learning about energy contribution can have a real impact in your life. I would definitely recommend this course to a friend. This course is the first stepping stone in a life long journey, fully focused on self improvement and improvement of others.

No matter how much you think you know about nutrition, there is always more to learn and this course proves it! The weight gain questionnaire tool is very handy and useful. I learned more about counting the caloric intake of different essential foods. Would definitely recommend!

 by Mogga Julious Alex on The Health Sciences Academy

Nice introduction to nutrition and health that makes you want to know more about it. I didn't know that super foods were so rich in mineral and vitamins and I will now try to eat more of them! I also learnt that it is important to have a food diary to tract everything I eat in order to change some bad habits. The pools made me realize that I have to change some things. I will try to cook healthier for me and my family and try to make them understand how nutrition is important for their health. Thanks for the basics

Nutritional value

a) I enjoyed calculating the weight gain. Jamie''s video was just a cream of the crop top class

b) Calculating the weight gain made me come into realisation that almost half of what we eat and do everyday is not healthy , so lesson learnt was clear read and research in what you put in your mouth.

c) I have quite a few friends and sisters at work that always try to work out their weight 8 having this course certificate will make me stand out from the crown and when I speak now they will listen thanks to Health Science Academy.

d) As a qualified Pharmacist Assistant, this course and other courses within the Health Science Academy, they will help me unleash the inner professional within me. Having completed the first one , God be with me continue until I get qualified as a Clinical Weight Loss Practitioner. Thank you

I found this course to be very informative. I was somewhat familiar with some of the information regarding the super foods but I still learned more.

The content was great! The self assessments were great and very helpful in understanding personal habits and routines. The information about daily intake, caloric density, serving size and food in order of most beneficial and nutritional was rather insightful. I'll recommend this course to the rest of my team. I enjoy TedTalks so that was also a plus! This course will be of great help for changing my diet, boosting my metabolism and giving the tools to take my learning and career further.

 by Kimberley Salter on The Health Sciences Academy
Step in the right direction

This is a great started course for anyone who is interested in nutrition, whether it be for personal gain or for professional development.

The general public and aspiring athletes do not get access to nutritional information until they become professional or have the money to access the resources, this course give a starting platform of knowledge to help anyone understand the basics of a good diet.

Whats great about the video of Jamie Oliver is the passion behind the cause and that is truly inspiring.

Content of the course

Content is very simple and easy to understand for a non-native English person.Following is what I like most from this course

1.Basic of Nutrition

2.Super food what it mean

3.What is calorie mean,how to calculate and consume

I am very much concerned about health and I believe a healthy nation is what this world need. I am happy to share my knowledge with people who need help and support and I believe there is a solution for all our problems!

Peace and Love

My future me

I have always loved learning and there are so many mixed messages about nutrition that I'd really like to learn more and get more involved. I really enjoyed the short sections and the interactive questions. My discovery was printing off the journal and reviewing what I ate, I need to learn more about it to know if I'd recommend to a friend however I have a few people who ar interested. I'd like to learn lots so that I can pass the good information and knowledge onto my children so they understand and follow the basics and don't fall into the fat/Obese trap!!

 by Jamie McAllister on The Health Sciences Academy

Great course, provides more than just the basics. It breaks down how to do the mathematics of nutritional breakdown for the individual, as well as provides practical assessments to ensure you have obtained the knowledge. The polls are intriguing as they make you feel more involved in the course and to see where others nutritional health sits. This is important as I am working towards a care in Health and Nutrition. The most useful information would be the facts on the Super Foods as there is much controversy about this topic out there, great break down on this topic in this course. I will definitely refer friends and family to this course to learn about the basics of nutrition and learn how to implement it into their daily lives. I recommend this course as it is a basic nutrition course that provides beyond the 'basics' most courses do.

Why "health science academy" Course?

When I decided to get into a different aspect of my medical career, that is nutrition advisor, I started searching the web and asking my friends who are interested in the field. When I got into the health science academy web site, I found the great list of courses and the very nice free starter course. In the beginning, to be honest, I thought it would be such a superficial

Course just for advertisement. Anyway I gave it trial. I was wrong. I enjoyed the course very much. I had previous short courses about nutrition. However, I enjoyed here the weight gain probability score. It is easy, comprehensive and applicable. The course content deserved reading. I watch Jaime on TV but I enjoyed his video in the course very much too. I had actually recommended the course for 3 friends of mine. I aspire to build my own career in spreading the healthy nutrition culture. I would like to transfer the proper knowledge and skills for all the people responsible for nutrition. I mean mothers and wives, teachers and doctors, patients suffering from obesity and those who succeeded to lose the overweight but need to keep their victory. I dream of changing the people attitude towards food.

Extremely Helpful Course

I have extremely enjoyed this course. It did not take me that long to get familiar with the content but I have learnt a lot and even received a certificate by the end of this. This was an absolutely exciting learning adventure for me!

My number one discovery would be in regards to food labels. I have found out that what is written on the box could simply be an advertisement technique.

I think this is a great course for anyone wishing to start their career in nutrition or just learn more about what constitutes the healthy lifestyle.

I am an ex-professional athlete so sports and nutrition have always been extremely important to me. After graduating with masters in journalism, I have decided to make this my life passion. I want to write about nutrition and sport and help others to step towards the healthier route. Do not miss your chance and sign up for this course now! Thank you the Health Science Academy for the amazing content and an opportunity!

Nutrition Course Review

Great course for beginners to follow, very well planned out. Love that there are some well known public figures, such as chef Jamie Oliver, who share their passion for not only food but how food can be part of our wellbeing. I totally agree that we need a food revolution especially here in America. People need to know what they are eating, that the supply at the grocery stores are not nutritious foods and that we are responsible for our own health. The education is key here, starting at a young age in our school system is a great way to get everyone more knowledgeable about what is real food and how it affects our health. I enjoyed every part of this class. Thank you!

Be Better

Dear Admissions,

I am writing in request that you would accept the following application for the chance to win a free scholarship.

I want to first thank you for the free nutrition course. I found it very informative. Nutrition and fitness have always been a part of my families life. Now I am looking at this industry as a career. I have always worked in the hospitality industry so I feel that this would be a easy transition.

I love Jamie Oliver. I have shared that video with as many people possible. My son and I have had some fantastic dialogue on what the schools offer and what are the good foods. I have made an effort since he was born to put the right foods on the plate.

My number one discovery is that I want to be a better dad. I need to continue to educate and provide him a with a healthy non processed environment. It's not easy but we are confident that we can continue down a 'be better' path.

I have already recommended your academy with six friends and family members. All have children. I look forward to hearing feed back from them.

As mentioned, I want to be better in my personal life and I want to help people so they can feel how I do. I have already started this path. I have a group of friends that I work with - daily and weekly in a 'be better' group. It's about working out, eating better and sharing ideas.

By continuing my education and with my drive I know I can make this happen.

Thank you for your consideration.

A Great First Step in to The World of Health and Nutrition

I thoroughly enjoyed this course and found it to be quite easy to follow, I enjoyed the weight gain assessment the most as even though I thought I was following the healthiest diet possible for me it turns out that there is always still more to learn and room for improvement. I have always had a passion for health and nutrition, especially the psychological side to it. I find it fascinating that by eating the correct foods your mood and general outlook on life greatly improves but by eating the incorrect foods it can alter your mood drastically. I would love to further develop my knowledge on nutrition and I am even thinking of pursuing it to further my career as I already work in Science.

 by Rachel Tinney on The Health Sciences Academy
Review of course

I enjoyed the weight gain assessment and further strengthening my nutrition knowledge. I also enjoyed reading all the additional links that opened in a new window and have saved them for future reference. I was not aware that bee pollen was the most complete food found in nature which was very interesting. I will recommend this to my friends who done the food and nutrition degree with me and my friends and family who are interested in nutrition. I would like to have a career in either personal training, health promotion or some form of educating about food and nutrition. I want to further my education in nutrition and exercise to help as many people as I can.

A great Introduction into nutrition.

The content in the starter nutrition course is a great way to taster of what there is to learn in nutrition and tests you against your knowledge on the subject. This has shown me that although I know a lot about nutrition there is still a lot more for me to learn and has inspired me to want to take the next step into nutrition by looking into other courses you have. I would love to be able to make a career change into nutrition and start to help people make healthier life choices especially children as they don't get enough taught to them. I would recommend this to anyone who is wanting to further there knowledge in nutrition.

 by Jakki Grant on The Health Sciences Academy
Nice Introduction

Great introduction to nutrition. After doing the taster, I am definitely looking into doing the other courses available. I did this for a personal achievement, and to know what to eat while trying to manage my weight and exercising. This was definitely the introduction I needed, and provided me with the basic information I needed to make a change, and to let me know that nutritional knowledge is worth it's weight in gold.

Eye Opening Starter Nutrition Course

The reason that I became interested in nutrition as a future career path is because my mother suffered yet another stroke last year. She is currently recovering in a nursing home and it has been tremendously stressful on our whole family, especially my father. I'm making it my mission not to have the same health issues...I know that good nutrition is the key. I have made great changes in my diet, but after taking the Weight Gain Questionnaire in this course, I now know what areas need even more tweaking to obtain the best nutrition.

I had heard of Superfoods before, but I didn't know exactly which foods they are or what are their benefits. I liked how they were explained in detail and I will definitely include them in my diet.

The most eye opening information in this course was the video with Jamie Oliver. I'll admit that I teared up when he sat down with the mom and all of the junk food that she was feeding her children. It was also shocking to see that the school children couldn't identify the vegetables that they were shown. I don't want to send my children out into the world not knowing how to cook healthful meals for themselves. I truly believe that nutritional education needs to start at home.

After going through this course, I am more determined to gain as much knowledge as I can to help others with their relationship with nutrition.

Doing Good and Doing Well

I wrote a book, Doing Good and Doing Well, The Keys to A Happy and Healthy Life. My mission is to help middle-aged Asian women who are sick of yo-yo diets and are looking for a long term sustainable solution. I want to bring them from going around in circles to having absolute clarity about how to manage their weight.

I have developed a program to help them based on my personal journey, having downsized two dress sizes. I was someone who would do anything to avoid exercise. Today, I have completed 2 10-km races in 2015 and I'm gearing up for at least 2 15-km races this year.

However, this experience alone cannot compare with what I had discovered in this starter nutrition course. The wealth of information consolidatied at one location, it's such a useful and powerful resource. I am confident that my goal of training and empowering women to build a business in helping others will become a reality with the courses offered at the Health Sciences Academy.

Thank you for providing this platform to allow me to see my mission through!

Good Starter Course

I enjoyed the starter course thoroughly as an introduction to the format of teaching and learning used by this site. I look forward to further exploring my options of continuing my nutrition education with this program. I enjoyed trying out the course and exam and was pleased to discover how easy the interface and layout was to navigate and use. I would recommend this to co-workers and friends.I am planning on opening a gym in the near future as well as continuing my semi-pro (soon to be pro) athletics career, building a greater understanding of general and specialized nutrition will benefit myself and my co-workers and clients.

Know what you eat and what it does to your body

What I liked about this course is quality of information based on researches which is presented in simple way to be understood by almost everybody.

Pass it on Philosophy

The structure and format was clear, concise and easy to follow, with additional links to invaluable information. The learning experience was pleasurable and like Jamie Oliver’s 2010 TED talk ‘Teach every child about food’ inspiring and tantalising. I have used the 'What's your weight gain probability?' assignment to advise my clients - Holistic Therapies case studies of their scores and talked with them about the 'Top 5 changes' they are going to make this month. A teenager’s comment after we calculated his recommended score of 14, "I’d not really thought about it before, I'm shocked there’s so much sugar in foods I eat".

2016 is seeing a positive movement in the ‘sugar tax on soft drinks industry’ to fight against child obesity and with the practical approach from The Health Science Academy ‘Starter to Nutritional Course’ and their powerful links to ‘Pass it on philosophy’, whereby when one person teaches 3 people, and they teach 3 of their mates, it only has to repeat itself 25x’ Jamie Oliver to empower others, to enable to change from a 'crisis' into a ‘food revolution’.

My personal and voluntary aspirations is to work within the community supporting and educating young vulnerable people to help improve their knowledge of food, cooking and making healthy choices.

We are all binded by information and education.

Thank you.

Priceless introduction course for beginners

I liked value of the course and the way it was presented - simple and nicely designed.

All information presented is not new for me, as i'm a serious about my health and keep educating myself on constant basis, yet ammount of calories per nutrien was something i never been thinking about.

I defenetly will reccomend this to someone i care about as a great introdaction into healthy eating.

I near future i will open my own health coaching online business and i would like to learn from Health and Science Academy. The course i would like to undertake is Nutrition Therapy and Detox Specialist. Help people to start leaving holistic full of health life is my mission, i feel it from deep of my heart. I really hope Health and Science Academy will help me that!

Starter Nutrition Course

A really good insight into healthy eating which can be used universally. I really liked the fact that it's short, informative and you can learn online - I especially liked the TED talk, which was very inspirational and true. Very shocking how much sugar children consume in flavoured milk alone! I would recommend this to a friend and will be incorporating these habits into my cooking and encourage my family and friends to do the same - I will definitely share the tips! Thank you.

Join the Food Revolution

I've always known the basics of food and nutrition, but never quite appreciated that this may not be common knowledge. I feel fortunate to have had a Grandfather who had a passion for healthy eating (the number of times he told me to eat 4 brazil nuts a day to get my selenium in!) Without his passion I wouldn't be where I am today in terms of health and wellbeing. Taking this course and watching Jamie's TED talk has really brought it home that others aren't so fortunate. Food education is not a standard, and it should be! This was the most eye-opening thing about this course, so do yourself a good service and take this course. It will improve your knowledge, even if you think you know a lot about food. I was pleasantly surprised to read about the benefits of superfoods and just how many different nutrients they have packed into them. So take this course, improve your knowledge of food and then share it with others to create positive change! We can all make a difference.

After graduation I'm pursuing a Master's in Human Nutrition and become a Public Health Nutritionist. This course was the first step to realizing my goal so thank you for making this course free!

Inspiration & Information from Health Sciences Academy given to people like me is how we are going to change the landscape of food in our climate.

My goal to become a qualified nutritionist and weave this into my Yoga business feels like it can become a reality. Also sharing the knowledge with my young family, friends and relatives will be joyful. Thank you for your generosity.x

Helps make better basic food choices.

Very enjoyable nutrition course, I liked the superfood (functional foods) unit best. My number one discovery was the realisation of how much sugar people consume! Recommended to a friend before even starting the cousre, it's FREE! I want myself and others to live cruelty free, long and healthful lives. Go vegan :)

Thank you

Great Insight into Modern View of Food & Nutrition

Very frankly, 'The Starter Nutrition Course' was a brilliant chance to gain knowledge on the medical view of food and nutrition. It very simple clarifies some very commonly used terms and concepts such as 'calories', 'superfoods', 'calorie calculation', 'food labeling' to name a few. The most enjoyable part was the logical order of content and its simplicity. Most of the times we end up landing at a nutritionists doorstep and blindly follow what is being told. So called client empowerment is always at the back of all health and diet counselings. Fortunately, this course gives an insight and serves as the first step to empowerment. The number one discovery for me had been to understand food labels and calculating the source of calories. I highly recommend the course upto a layman level audience. My professional aspirations include educating and empowering audience, specially children, to be able to make right decisions which starts with right diet and food choices.

Brilliant course

I really enjoyed this course. Im looking in to a new career helping people make their diets healthier. I also wanted to see if I could improve my own diet and this was a great starting point. It was interesting to learn about the superfoods, how they can help us and how many different sources of protein their is other then meat. I also really like Jamie olivers talk. It put in to perspective how bad some of the worlds population is eating

I will use this information to continue to improve my families diet. I hope to find more courses so I can further my knowledge and help fight against the obesity problems in my country.

A short but sweet(without the calories!) starter nutrition course

As I worked my way through this free starter course in Nutrition I found myself going through my cupboards and working out the percentage of calories per nutrient from the food labels! Shocking to say the least! With easy to understand information, bonus content and a video from Jamie Oliver the course is enjoyable and makes you want to keep reading, listening and learning. My goal is to set up an online nutrition site to work alongside my partners personal training site and can't wait to learn more! This course confirmed why I want to start a career in Nutrition- too many people in the world with not enough knowledge or guidance. Let's get learning!

This course gives an ideal starting point for those wishing to learn more about Nutrition or wishing to make a career change, it gives the basic knowledge and some ideas on calculating how much fat is really in your food from looking at the labels and a simple equation!

Great course!

nutrition course

an excellent starter course. I have been out of education for about five years. This course has enabled me to gently ease myself back into study again. Really enjoyed it . Thank you

accurate and educational

this course was brief but insightful, giving clear information about nutritional value, easy to read and understand. special thanks to Jamie Oliver TED for his accurate and deep enlightenment of gaps in nutrition of our younger generation. I will recommend health sciences for my patients that coming for my massage sessions, my friends and colleagues.

Interesting module

As a free started course to nutrition it is great. I particularly has a wow moment with the grams/calorie calculations. It contained a good reminder about food labeling and what is regulated (and what is not). The video was a nice touch to break away from the written material. It didn't take long to do but I feel charged ready to action myself and to encourage others.

My life in a Nutshell

The weight gain assessment was very in-depth and I was able to pinpoint the problems that cause weight-gain in most individuals. My discovery was that there is still a lot more information to take in regarding nutrition as it is a broad subject in today's society. I'd recommend this to anyone who is willing to learn more about healthy living and is passionate about science/nutrition. My professional aspirations would be to one day own my own gym or clothing business and be a sponsored athlete.

 by Maeve Keaveney on The Health Sciences Academy

I found this advisory course extremely interesting and very insightful.

There is so much information covered and done in such a way thats makes it easy to understand.

I have always had an interest in sports and have been involved in sport from childhood in one way or another. I have had promlems with asthama and allergies in the passed, maybe they were linked, I am not sure, doctors couldnt tell me and I got sick of hearing what it might be so I took it upon myself to change my diet and exercise at least 4 times a week because I wanted to and it helped me a huge amount, it has changed my life. My asthma went away as did any allergies. I now feel good and if I don't exercise or eat well I miss it. I sleep better, I feel better, I am better. And I would love to help people realsie how it can be done and that it doesnt have to be a chore it can be a way of life.

 by jonathon on The Health Sciences Academy
great insight to the basics

 by Stephanie Easton on The Health Sciences Academy
Influential and educational

This video gives a necessary insight into what has already become a frightful, world issue. Jamie's video particularly inspired me by emphasising the harsh truths about the current problem and continuing future threats as we continue to harm the future generations. The simple reality is that through lack of education, knowledge and effort to create healthy meals, we are killing ourselves and our futures. I particularly found it insightful to discover the struggles children had when naming simple fruits and vegetables. If people can curb their unhealthy eating habits, it could potentially see a huge decrease in not only obesity but also in other knock-on health problems. Superfoods should be advertised more and used more within recipes to help people include them into simple meals. Overall, a completely inspiring and incentive-filled course.

 by Giovanni Nusca on The Health Sciences Academy
Passion for Healthy Living

Food, friends and family have been the great loves of my live, and they usually go hand in hand. This introductory course not only reinforced what I love about nutrition, but also highlighted the need for dieticians to intervene on a public and personal level. The weight gain assessment is a smart and innovative approach for people who struggle with their eating habits to make realistic and sustainable changes. I was surprised by my own result, which only goes to show that no matter how much knowledge I have accumulated there is always more to learn. This is also why I love the idea of a career in nutrition, the learning never ends. Jamie Oliver's passion is contagious. His courage to stand up in the face of overwhelming opposition makes me want to be one of his soldiers in this battle to save the future of our children. This is why I am determined to change paths and follow a career in health care as a clinical dietician. We have to guarantee that the next generation can make informed decisions to promote their wellbeing as well as protecting the environment - which can be achieved simultaneously at every single meal time. My personal goal is to help the youth of South Africa before they adopt the bad eating habits already engrained in too many modern societies. And in a country that has an abundance of fresh local produce, it is a shame to see young kids already lining up outside local fast food joints. Prevention is better than cure. Food is better than medicine. Everyday that we wait is one more day where we allow people to poison themselves. Personally, I have had enough and cannot wait to make my contribution for change.

 by Ollie Powell on The Health Sciences Academy
Starter Nutrition Course

This is a good insight into what is waiting ahead for further education of nutrition. I am currently studying to become a personal trainer and having nutrition i know far to well plays a bigger part than exercise.

I found the polls were fun to do as i did it with some family members and helps them to think about what to change in their diet even if it something so simple. What i found intriguing was the regulation for 'low fat', 'fat free' products being so well governed to make sure its sticking to whats meant to be in the product. I would encourage anyone serious about fitness to look into this course to give them a better understanding of nutrition.


Excellent and really helpful and Amazing information that this course has covered, including the variety of superfoods that really awesome but are still largely unknown.

The Nutrition course content

I love how the Health Sciences Academy organizes its course content. In the contemporary society, most people are not aware of their daily nutritional needs i.e which foods are good for their well being, what are the Recommended Dietary Allowances as well as the nutritional content of foods they eat.

It is important to actively regulate how we consume food and which foods are important to our bodies in order to live healthier and longer. Sharing information with people who do not have enough knowledge about nutrition is very important because we help them live better healthier and even longer lives.

I love the fact that Health Sciences Academy has its own researchers therefore has original content to learn from. I like the weight gain assessment as well as Jamie's video which means that content is generated from a variety of sources.

My biggest discovery is that a person can decide to live a longer healthier live and can also influence others on importance of good nutrition and therefore make them live a healthier lives. I would therefore re comment this to any person willing to change their nutritional needs for better lives.

I aspire to continue being a great champion of good nutrition for better live for everyone in my personal lever as well as in my career.

Thank you very much.

I learned a lot

I went into this course not knowing what to expect. It was a very informative course, and I also realize that I have a lot to learn. The course was easy to understand and to navigate through. The most important thing I learned was that most of the diseases we worry about are preventable and diet related. I would recommend this course to everyone that is fighting any disease because I truly believe that we could fix a lot of our problems by eating the correct foods.

Perfect course

This is a great way to learn and increase you knowledge and experience fin health and wellness. Fab way the course is done-interesting and clear information :) enjoy!

Insightful and informative

The starter course was worth it. I enjoyed the part on super foods because I used to take certain ones, namely Macca, Cacao, Spirulina. Being a busy person always on the go it is important to understand your nutritional needs and a lot of the topics in the course explained the unanswered questions as to why we do certain things when it comes to foods. The reasons behind food addictions and sugar addiction were really interesting and if one knows what food does to us, from a scientific point of view, then we can make better nutrition choices. I found myself unable to put the course material down because it was highly informative and the panel of discussions after certain articles are encouraging. My number one discovery was the issue about fat free foods which can be counterproductive. I would recommend it to family and hope they can as a result become more aware. Personally, If I get a chance to do the course I would use it on my self first to lose unwanted weight and become more nutritionally aware. I have tried various fitness regimens and the like but struggled to meet my desired goals. By being equipped with the extensive and detailed knowledge in the course I would be confident in achieving my goals of a health of nutritional balance avoiding disease. I am an asthma patient so if I could eliminate medication by addressing nutrition it will be an achievement. Thanks for the starter course, its a great opportunity to be valued and very practical. Being not formally in the health industry but looking to add skills to one day be self sustainable and adding to a meaningful existence in addition to my existing career and to help myself and people to reach optimum nutrition.

Introduction to nutrition

It was interesting to do the weight gain assessment and see how certain things can add up to making you more likely to put on weight. I found the reading food labels really interesting. The ted talk from Jamie Oliver was good, I have seen it before, but it is such a powerful talk it still effects you even if you've seen it before. I liked that there was links to other reading material. Definitely a good taster, which makes you want to find out more

I enjoyed the super food education the most. I felt like the education was thorough and easily understood. I think calculating the percentage of calories of a food that are either, carbs, fat, or protein was eye opening for me. I would and have recommended this course to friends. I hope that this will help with my small business and bringing awareness to my consumers. We aim to provide education and support for the body inside and out.

A great introduction to nutrition

This was a great introduction to nutrition. I have listened to other coursers online but this was by far the most organized one. I loved the weight gain assessment, it actually made me realize things about my diet that I want to change but haven't noticed before. My biggest discovery was that step by step, health can be improved with nutrition both on a personal level and for someone else. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn something new about nutrition and themselves. I study Food Technology at the "Ss. Cyril and Methodius" University in Skopje, Macedonia, but what I really want is to become a nutritionist and make as many people as I can aware of the importance that food has in our lives. My mom had breast cancer and my dad had a pituitary gland tumor and the first thing doctors said after both their surgeries was that their diet need to change. So often we take food for granted, forgetting that it is the basis of our health and how our body works. Eat well and your body will serve you well.

Great taster, but I'm eager for MORE!! This is the first nutrition-based study I have done, and I have fallen in love!

The content was great and easy to understand. I loved learning about the essential nutrients and how to calculate calorie percentages. I want to study more and get a bit more into the science behind nutrition. Thanks so much for getting my nutritional juices flowing! (that sounds a bit gross, yet somewhat appropriate) ;)

Left me wanting more

As someone fighting heart disease with diet, exercise & supplements, I decided it would make sense to get some qualifications so I can help others.

Knowledge Is Power

This course was very insightful and easy to follow. My favorite part about this course was Jamie's video. It was very inspiring to watch and visual to see how obesity really affect's our society. My number one discovery was how labels can be misleading. I read labels all of the time and I never knew the criteria for things to be labeled a certain way. I also could not believe that "light" is not technically regulated and that shocked me. I would absolutely recommend this course to a friend. I am a registered nurse and I really enjoy helping people. I plan on hopefully taking other courses to obtain more knowledge and help to inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle. This is a passion for me and I cannot wait to share my knowledge with others to make a difference in their lives!

 by David Tayler on The Health Sciences Academy
Insightful and Well Structured

I found the course to be very well structured; the parts build one upon each other to give a good introduction to the subject of health and nutrition. The practical parts of the course really helped to highlight what I had understood and what I had missed and I was able to improve my understanding by reviewing the materials again, until I was 100% confident I had understood it. My favourite part was on Superfoods and this has inspired me to pay more attention to those and include them in my health regime.

Great insight into nutrition

I really enjoyed doing the course , it help me to build my knowledge of health and nutrtion.

It showed me the importance of educating children about food and encouraging healthy eating and food choices from an early age, as an early years professional this is something I do on a daily basis with the children and families that I work with.

On a personal level I found the superfood section particularly useful as I am trying to incorporate these more into my diet, I now have a greater understanding of how each one may be beneficial to my health.

Very impressed with the course and would love to develop my skills further by doing future courses.

Great starter course!

Had a look at this course as I have signed up for the full level 5 nutritional therapist course and I wanted to refresh my basic knowledge. Some really good points to think about here, particularly highlighting the fact that this is a global and socio-cultural issue as well as an individual one. I intend to use this to develop my specialist knowledge and apply it to my psychological career as a psychological wellbeing practitioner. Nutrition and the links between mental health and wellbeing has always been an interest of mine and I am really looking forward to learning more and being able to implement my knowledge with patients!

 by Paul Ben Israel on The Health Sciences Academy
Enlightening and frightening

The course provided a high level overview of the fundamental building blocks of nutritional science. There were a number of moments where I realised that at age 43 there was a wealth of information that could have been useful to know when I was 20 years younger. I especially found the Jamie Oliver TED talk enlightening and at the same time frightening - every parent should be exposed to the health risks they may be subjecting their children to. I can highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to start on a journey of learning how to live and be healthier, stronger and more resilient.

Great starting point

This is a really great starting point for anyone that is interested in nutrition and wants to know how the things they eat affect their body. It's also great to see this information is freely available.

I am really excited and fascinate with this course. I really enjoyed this little moment.

I always like to have a great diet with the most good ingredients: water, fruits and vegetables. I am a monster of fruits and vegetables, I love them. I like to be healthy and to have a good fit.

At this moment I am working as a chef at Union Jack's Jamie Oliver and I love my job. I love to cook, create and taste food. With this job I am feeling I need to do something more to complement the most I like to do.

With this course I want to learn more about food and its properties. I want to grow up my little knowledge to keep doing what I like to do with more confidence and to change my life and others.

Starter Nutrition Course

I would highly recommend this course for anyone with an interest in nutrition. I am already a health-conscious person but there were some areas within this course that I could improve on to become an even more health-conscious person. My favourite unit was superfoods, and it was interesting to learn more about what these are and how they can improve my overall health. There were a few that are currently not in my diet but after reading this I will be sure to include these now. Overall impressed with this course. Thank you to The Health Sciences Academy. Keep up the good work!!!

Starter Nutrition Guide

This course was very insightful, I enjoyed the meaningful information that I can use in everyday situations. The tests in between the units help to understand the course material in a more practical way. My number one discovery has to be about the superfoods and what they can do for your body. My personal aspirations would be to become a pro athlete and possibly a nutritionist in the future. I am currently prepping for WBFFSA and would like to place in the top 3 for diva bikini model category.

A great starter course

Having taught myself most of what I already know about nutrition through a personal interest, I really enjoyed this starter course and whizzed through it! It provides really good, solid basic knowledge to get your grounding in nutrition off to a great start. The most valuable tools for me were learning how to calculate someone's potential for weight gain, and also how to calculate the energy payout of certain foods.I have been considering starting a part time business in nutrition for quite some time now, and this short course has made me realise it is absolutely something I would love to pursue once I have the right credentials. Having lost over 3st a few years ago and completely changing my lifestyle around, I want to be able to use that experience to help and guide others who may feel completely lost at sea with themselves. It's all about making people feel better on the inside and helping them to live healthily - I am so passionate about it! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who is interested in nutrition or who is wanting to start a personal journey of becoming more aware of what they are putting in their body and how it can affect them.

 by Natacha on The Health Sciences Academy

Brilliant course. I particularly enjoyed learning how to calculate fat/ carbs and protein and learning about the different superfoods and why they are considered to be superfoods. It has inspired me to advance to go in to business in this field.

Awesome Nutritional Course

I really have enjoyed The Health and Sciences Academy On-line Nutritional courses. They are well presented with information, in an easy to understand format, I love the videos, voters polls, and that they actually what your feedback from you the student. I really enjoy the assessments test and have they use a scoring system with results. then they tell what to do base on the answers. Also the way the courses are broken down in chapters so you can work at your own pace. Even tho I already know about nutrition, I am always willing to learn something more and I did with this course, and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to learn more about nutrition. I plan to help myself and others in the healthcare field by providing nutritional support.

 by Andrew on The Health Sciences Academy
Great starter course!

I've done a few nutrition courses before this one, I took a lot away from this course despite that. The course is great because it's very interactive and it gets you personally involved with it. Easy to follow, even though it's a short course it's still very insightful and I think given the opportunity to do the scholarship you'd be silly not to take it, great course!

eye opener

Wow this is wonderful, the saying goes that health is wealth. When you eat well you stay out of hospital. I love this course. It is really an eye opener. Few months ago I took up a challenge to start giving my body a treat, so I decided to go natural and the result was amazing then it occurred to me that there are lots to do. It is making others around me to be aware of healthy diet then I decided to take a course on health and nutrition. In the process of research I found the health science ACADEMY. Jamie's video is highly inspiring. People need to know how to be on top of their life style and for once love themselves and stop putting junks in their body. Super foods renews our cells and fights unwanted elements in our system. I shall recommend to as many as I can reach.

As everyone need to eat everyday, we want to maximize the nutrition we gain from the food we ate, therefore, this course can help us to choose the best product that we eat everyday in order to have enough energy to consume and be healthy.

Great introductory for interesting courses

I have been interested in this topic for years. I am reading a lot about well-being, took one health and nutrition course before. This one helped me to refresh my knowledge and get some new information. I enjoyed listen to Jamie. His lecture was inspiring and very good.

I got interested in a healthy life some time ago. I decided, I do not want to put rubbish in my body . I want to be fit and healthy. I want to be aware, what I am eating and how important this is. And advise other people too. I want to know where ilnesses come from and bit them.I am more aware now and buy foods which are the most important for my body and well-being.

 by Natalia Deschamp on The Health Sciences Academy
Interesting information

I thoroughly enjoyed the starter course, i found answers to so many questions which my friends asked, before i didn't know the answer to them and it was great fun learning about superfoods! Now not only i possess the knowledge about their nutritional value,but am able to buy and try them myself. My family is now on a healthy path thanks to this informative starter course!

 by Samantha on The Health Sciences Academy

I really enjoyed the process of this free course. I really enjoyed learning about the various super foods as well as food labels.

I have discovered that knowing this information we can change so many lives, staring with educating adults so they can pass on the information to their children and thus creating a chain reaction of healthier lifestyles.

My whole life I was told I was too fat, and when I changed my lifestyle thanks to a wonderful nutritionist, it changed my world. I want to help others do the same.

I would definitely recommend taking this course for anyone looking for a bit of inspiration"

 by Leona Brennan on The Health Sciences Academy

Great entry level course - recapping lots of valuable information, basic, informative and useful. Has definitely made me want to learn more.

 by Ryanna Lay on The Health Sciences Academy
Be the best YOU!

a) I thoroughly enjoyed everything the course offered, the essential nutrient groups, information on energy and food labeling. It's a great starter for anyone looking to change their life in a healthier way.PDF slides were great! Simple but very informative b) My number one discovery was the food labeling calculations and how the detailed label only states the % weight not the number of calories provided by each nutrient. c) I have recommended this to many friends. My sister has started this too we love it!! d) I feel very lucky my whole family is health conscious. I myself am a Personal Trainer for 4 years now and I am currently going through some health issues for the past 2years ( food intolerance,acne, hormonal imbalances) I lost confidence in myself. I found it hard to face my clients as I wanted to represent the meaning of health. I have been to many GPS and they suggest I use different medications but I said no, I wanted to heal myself naturally through nutrition. Fast forward I changed up my diet cleaning super healthy and clean and seeing a naturopath I am seeing great changes! I am no longer depressed and I am more excited and passionate than ever to help others and spread the word of a healthy, active, nutritious lifestyle. I would be forever grateful if I got the opportunity to win a scholarship for a course with your company! Yours Faithfully Ryanna :)

Dynamic Health

Just completed this course. It was very informative and I enjoyed it. I do not have enough money so I was searching for a free online course on nutrition. Although most of my friends know that what they eat becomes what they are, it is really disheartening to see that they do not make the right choices. I think if we want people to change then it is time that we should Act more and Talk less; I suggested a weight loss competition to my friends and they were eager to participate. I am hoping that one day the people in my country will be wise in making choices about their foods as we are one of the leading countries in the Pacific with NCD's.

Great Starter Course

In my opinion this course is great and all the contents are very interesting. The weight gain assessment is a good start to understand your own habits. The pdf is so useful: I like taking quiz to learn faster. I know and eat most of the superfood listed but I'd like to try them all ;-) Jamie's video was sensational. I'll highly recommend it to my friends. I'm very proud of my first certificate! Thank you to help me start a new journey.

 by Toney Dunaway on The Health Sciences Academy
Great start!

I've been studying nutrition for years, and I've achieved a Fitness Nutrition certification through NASM. Much of the basics I already know, however, there are always those "other areas" that you can still learn more basics in, and that's what I think I can gather from this course. I want to eventually be an expert in the field of nutrition, and I think this course has good information to build onto the foundation for that dream!

 by Hannah on The Health Sciences Academy
Great starting point

I am looking to begin a career in sports nutritionvans I was looking for a course to introduce me to the subject area and give me a feel for what it is all about. This course did exactly that, and Jamie Oliver's lecture gives you a real passion to improve the way you eat and encourage and help others to understand the huge benefits of healthier eating.

 by Gayathiri Rajakumar on The Health Sciences Academy
Very Useful

I have always been interested in nutrition and how food affects our lives daily. You never really think about what you put in your mouth and how much damage it can do to you, until you thoroughly learn about it! I am so glad I did this! Everyone should definitely give this course a try as it really does make you think twice about healthy choices!

Basic Nutritional Information

Pretty decent information outlining the basics of nutritional needs, with factual evidence and statistics to back up their teachings.

Interesting, and easy to read without feeling overwhelmed.

A good start for anyone just beginning their journey towards a deeper understanding of nutrition and the human physiology.

Starter Nutrition Course

I completed this course today. I have an interest in beginning a career in nutrition with a view to educating people to make better choices. This course outlined the basics of nutrition that most people today are not sure of and many have never been informed of. I am delighted to have received pdf versions of the materials covered in the course. These are extremely informative and useful. The polls and the weight gain assessment were very insightful tools from which I learned a lot about how I am doing with my own nutritional balance. My number one discovery was that knowledge is just a first step, implementation of that knowledge into everyday living is the hard work. I want to begin spreading this knowledge and helping people develop better nutritional habits so that they can live healthier lives, for longer.

 by Samantha on The Health Sciences Academy
Great Jumping Off Point

I hope this beginners course will inspire parents everywhere to educate their children on the necessity of fruits and vegetables, and even the share the joys of growing a wide variety of food themselves. knowledge is power and its about time to bring the power back to the people.

Very thorough course on weight gain and the different types of nutrition. I like the info on the proteins carbs fats etc.


This is a great course that everyone should complete to widen their knowledge! I have learnt so much from such a straight forward, no nonsense course. The follow up emails are a great bonus, it's amazing that this course and all its added content are free. I really want to take this further as I found it so interesting. I now want to do a more advanced course very soon and hopefully I can change the lives of others with what I learn. Thank you for making this available, I recommend everyone to complete this.

 by Chantal on The Health Sciences Academy
