Very informative

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

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

great for just starting out. it was really helpful.i am enjoying to start.

by Sahara Hassan on The Health Sciences Academy
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.


I have really enjoyed it so far, looking forward to learning what makes us healthier and fitter.

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.

thank you

great for just starting out. it was really helpful.

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.

A must!

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.

Excellent Starter Course

I enjoyed knowing about the different types of sugars and the names that they are give and also the different food groups

A Great Experoence

I find it amazing that I have been given such a wealth of information about food. I thought I knew a lot but I have learnt more on this course. Thank you. I look forward to even more information in the newsletters.

by TBI FITNESS on The Health Sciences Academy
Wellness Coach

Excellent program. I cannot described better. They way the content is explained It is absolutely understandable. Very clear explanation that is easy to encourage one to continue the course.

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.

by David Morrison on The Health Sciences Academy
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
Starter Nutrition Course

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.

Computer technology

Excellent program. I cannot described better. They way the content is explain I absolutely understandable. Very clear explanation that is easy to encourage to continue the course.

After completing the test course I am more determined to start a career in health and 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 about healthy eating and I want to help other to eat healthier.

by Graham Horsley on The Health Sciences Academy

A great introduction into the science of health and nutrition. It has been set out in an interesting and informative way that makes you want to continue to learn more.

Bring on the next course.

Well worth the time!

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.

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.

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.


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."

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!

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. The part of the course that i enjoyed the most was the inspirational video of Jamie Oliver.

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.

Great Start!

So nice introduction! I've found very practical content and polls.

Food labels were my number one discovery.

Definitely I will recommend this course

I am very motivated by possibility to spread this valued information in order to help others

Thank you,

feel very appreciative

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.

Daisy Faulkner

health & us

this is a very inspirational course started with a good motto to free the world from obesity and increase the longetivity of current and upcoming generations and make them fitter than us. I would like to recommend it to everyone.

Basic info

Good quick overview of the basics

by Vitor Correa on The Health Sciences Academy
worth it!!!

I have learned a lot. A quick and basic course with a lot of information to improve my quality of life.

by assad hamid on The Health Sciences Academy

Very helpful to get knowledge in health and science.

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 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.

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.


by Nguyen Thi Thuy on The Health Sciences Academy
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

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!

by Esraa Shaltout on The Health Sciences Academy

Fantastic insight

This course is a fantastic insight into food. The talk from Jamie Oliver is inspirational.

by Regina Leis on The Health Sciences Academy

Great course, very informative.

by Jamie McKeon on The Health Sciences Academy

I really enjoyed the food label calculation example; it really helped me better understand how labels dan be misleading and the difference between "low fat" and "reduced fat" products.


Good short course, I found this a really a great and interesting introduction to nutrition and I am eager to learn more and increase my knowledge and understanding.

by Heather Wood on The Health Sciences Academy
Brilliant course

I found this mini course so helpful and eye opening to the problems our society have with obesity. Jamie Oliver's TED talk was truly inspirational. I hope to be a part of the changes going forward.
