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

Very helpful to get knowledge in health and science.

Inspirational Introduction

Oct 17, 2016 by chantal

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to know that such an institution promotes pioneers like Jamie Oliver in their courses as many of the online courses are outdated.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.


Oct 16, 2016 by Sally

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.

Oct 13, 2016 by Nicholas James Vanderwal

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

Oct 13, 2016 by Aswathy

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.


Oct 12, 2016 by Lynn

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

Oct 12, 2016 by Nguyen Thi Thuy

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!


Oct 10, 2016 by alice kwissa

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

Oct 06, 2016 by Narendra Babu S

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.


Oct 05, 2016 by Trust mashazhu

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


Oct 04, 2016 by rob

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

Oct 03, 2016 by Rizal Ang

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!

perfect for a first course..

Oct 03, 2016 by Aman O'Connor

Very good starter course...
Well prepared with all the information that you may need

The Journey I Took On

Oct 02, 2016 by Okeeffe Wellington

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

Oct 01, 2016 by Paolo Provenzano

Ottimo corso di formazione gratuito, ricco di informazioni essenziali

Great for an introductory course!

Sep 30, 2016 by Ericka Conner

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.

A step in the right direction.

Sep 29, 2016 by Francois Pretorius

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.

Everybody should take this course!

Sep 29, 2016 by Roxana E. Gonzalez Lara

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!

Sep 18, 2016 by Simona

Very good concentrated course with basic information. However, for those who are already taking care in themselves or have interest in the healthy lifestyle, it might be too basic.

Pleasantly surprised

Sep 18, 2016 by Katy

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

Sep 18, 2016 by Katy

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.

Starter nutrition course

Sep 17, 2016 by Rachel kneller

A Course to Be Shared Across the Planet

Sep 06, 2016 by Dawn Marsden

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.

Everything in this free mini course is beneficial and informative enough to provide the first stepping stone towards a healthy lifestyle. Starting here, for me, is the catalyst to gain more knowledge about how healing foods can be and how it will benefit not just us but hopefully our pets too.

Amazing Little taster course

Starter Nutrition Course

Aug 04, 2016 by Sarah Hughes

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.

The Basics of Nutrition

Jul 20, 2016 by Jan

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.

We should all have a little more knowledge about food & good nutrition.

Wake up call

Jul 10, 2016 by Bogdan

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.

Food for thought

Jul 09, 2016 by Sandra Butler

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.


Jul 09, 2016 by Helen

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

knowledge is power

Jul 08, 2016 by carmen

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!

Jul 07, 2016 by Amy

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

Jul 07, 2016 by Chetan

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.


Jul 05, 2016 by rohit thawrani

i really enjoyed Jaime`s video and also the mails you sent . i really enjoyed taking my time out and done this course. it gives me very good information and got to love something new. i am also looking forward to apply the knowledge that i have learn from this course in my day to day activities. also it was very good introduction to the nutrition. i will highly recommend it to my friends.i also want to thanks for taking this initiative.

This course is an excellent stepping stone to a journey of self improvement and a way to educate others.

Eye opening course!

Jun 29, 2016 by Heather

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

Jun 24, 2016 by Camilla

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

Jun 24, 2016 by Ruth

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.

Intro Nutrition Course

Jun 22, 2016 by Bethany Waldie

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!


Jun 22, 2016 by Mogga Julious Alex

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

The content was great! I mostly enjoyed the video. Well done :-)

Nutritional value

Jun 20, 2016 by Sphamandla

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

Free nutrional course

Jun 19, 2016 by Armande

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. I am always looking to learn more about nutrition to help myself and others. Jamie's video hit it right on the nose. we need to educate people! Our children matter!

Starter Nutrition Course

Jun 16, 2016 by Sean Benjamin

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.

Step in the right direction

Jun 16, 2016 by Kimberley Salter

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

Jun 16, 2016 by Jobi

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!

Thank you

My future me

Jun 11, 2016 by Clare Scott

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!!


Jun 10, 2016 by Jamie McAllister

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?

Jun 10, 2016 by Amira

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.

Great Course!

Jun 09, 2016 by Kelsey Gray

I had learned a lot from this short and simple course.

Extremely Helpful Course

Jun 08, 2016 by Alena Feklina

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

Jun 02, 2016 by Katalin L

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

Jun 01, 2016 by Len Nakonechny

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

Jun 01, 2016 by Jenna Winspear

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.

Review of course

May 31, 2016 by Rachel Tinney

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.

May 27, 2016 by Sarah

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.

Nice Introduction

May 26, 2016 by Jakki Grant

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

May 17, 2016 by Rosalie Olivarez

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

May 16, 2016 by Adeline Heng

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

May 14, 2016 by Jon Matzov

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.

Pass it on Philosophy

May 07, 2016 by Kathleen

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

May 04, 2016 by Andrei Sevela

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!

Many thanks to The Health & Science Academy.

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

Apr 25, 2016 by Kara Ponsford

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. I am passionate about health and vitality and your courses give me the confidence and ability to talk to people around me about the Power of Food. 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

Great Insight into Modern View of Food & Nutrition

Apr 22, 2016 by deepti sehgal

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.

Thank you

Brilliant course

Apr 21, 2016 by Debbie Parsons

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

Apr 21, 2016 by Nastassja

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!

Interesting module

Apr 11, 2016 by Ali

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

Apr 09, 2016 by James Ziemkiewicz

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.


Apr 09, 2016 by Maeve Keaveney

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.

great insight to the basics

Apr 08, 2016 by jonathon

As i prepare to start a diploma in nutrition , i decided to start a little early and undertake this free course to get myself into the frame of mind of study once again. this free course gave me great insight and I cant wait to start studying once again.

Thanks guys.

Influential and educational

Apr 06, 2016 by Stephanie Easton

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.

Passion for Healthy Living

Apr 06, 2016 by Giovanni Nusca

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.

Starter Nutrition Course

Apr 05, 2016 by Ollie Powell

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.


Apr 04, 2016 by Kor

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.

Good starting point

For those who have no idea it is a great starting point and will give the user a general guide of what to expect in more in-depth courses.

The Nutrition course content

Apr 04, 2016 by NEHEMIAH

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.

It was fantastic !

It was a very useful course i just learned lots about nutrition , i became so interested more and more in the nutrition science and thinking about how to improve my health and others heath how to enhance our thinking about healthy food , healthy food doesn't mean steamed veges it is much more .Just have a balanced diet low in fat and then you can enjoy your entire life >>>

I learned a lot

Apr 03, 2016 by Vicky Branch

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.

Insightful and informative

Apr 02, 2016 by Dipan

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

Apr 01, 2016 by Lin Coley

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

A real eye opener

Apr 01, 2016 by Gillian Novi

This course was a perfect introduction to nutrition and certainly inspired me to take my new-found interest further. I would thoroughly recommend it.


Mar 28, 2016 by Chrystal

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

Mar 26, 2016 by Damjan Manevski

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

Mar 23, 2016 by Ros Tumber

As someone fighting heart disease with diet, exercise & supplements, I decided it would make sense to get some qualifications so I can help others. This short course proved to be a great introduction and the section on Superfoods was particularly helpful to me. Am now saving up for the dietary supplements course as I think that is just what I need :)

Knowledge Is Power

Mar 20, 2016 by Hayley Pickett

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!

Insightful and Well Structured

Mar 19, 2016 by David Tayler

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

Mar 14, 2016 by Nia

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!

Mar 14, 2016 by Eve

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!

it is a good starter course to get into nutrition and see if you are really into nutrition and if you want to go further in your studying. I will definetely go farther ;)

Enlightening and frightening

Mar 08, 2016 by Paul Ben Israel

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.

Mar 04, 2016 by anilda

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.

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!!!

I am currently prepping for WBFFSA and would like to place in the top 3 for diva bikini model category.

A great starter course

Feb 29, 2016 by Carly Watson

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.


Feb 26, 2016 by Natacha

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.

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.

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.

Feb 11, 2016 by Clarence Harding

This course was very informative! Love learning about the Superfoods and Jamie's video was very informative and thought provoking!


Feb 10, 2016 by Dawn

The information given in this course is clear and insightful.

eye opener

Feb 10, 2016 by Janet Benjamin

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.

The start of my journey

Feb 08, 2016 by Brian House

I found the course very insightful and easy to follow. It is a good base for me to use as i push forward and look to set up my own business as a sports and exercise nutritional adviser. I will have no hesitation in recommending this course to a friend.

A very good collection of information, great basic info with very good information on superfoods. Great introduction to nutrition awareness


Feb 06, 2016 by Holly

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.


Feb 06, 2016 by Subhajit Chakraborty

I would definitely recommend taking this course


Feb 06, 2016 by Melissa Lopez-Perez

It was a great way to learn something

Great introductory for interesting courses

Feb 05, 2016 by Paulina

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.

A great start for anyone

Feb 05, 2016 by William Robinson

I found this course to be really insightful and really wish I had done it a lot sooner. I consider myself well versed in trying to look after myself but this course and the Jamie Oliver video made me realise that there are a lot of people out there that DON'T know the basics outlined here, especially the parents of kids today!
During the course I found myself making notes of what to change in myself and others, looking up supermarket websites to see if they had any of the superfoods in stock, and crying at the passion coming from Jamie Oliver.
I'm on my own journey retraining as a fitness instructor, but I know I want to help as many people as I can who; don't eat breakfast, buy overpriced and undernourishing food in offices, and eat fast food as an excuse for not having the time and end up eating unprocessed ready meals.
We as a species need to improve our diets, and this course has helped me re-realise that I am walking the right path to improving my life and the lives of the people of the world.

Interesting information

Feb 05, 2016 by Natalia Deschamp

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!


Feb 05, 2016 by Samantha

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"


Feb 05, 2016 by Leona Brennan

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

Be the best YOU!

Feb 04, 2016 by Ryanna Lay

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 :)

I really enjoyed this course, the course notes were fantastic and the talk by Jamie Oliver was interesting and inspiring

Dynamic Health

Feb 04, 2016 by Semiti

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

Feb 03, 2016 by Sara

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.

Great start!

Feb 03, 2016 by Toney Dunaway

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!

Great starting point

Feb 02, 2016 by Hannah

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.

Very Useful

Feb 02, 2016 by Gayathiri Rajakumar

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

Feb 01, 2016 by Tay Wen Hao

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

Jan 31, 2016 by Rosalie Grace

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.

Great Jumping Off Point

Jan 30, 2016 by Samantha

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.


Jan 28, 2016 by Amanda

Great start! Loved Jamie's TED talk... will definitely share!


Jan 28, 2016 by Remi Cox

It was just what i wanted. Ticked all the right boxes informed me on all types of nutrition and broke everything down in a really clear, simple structure.


Jan 28, 2016 by Pam

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


Jan 27, 2016 by Emily

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.

Thank you!

Jan 27, 2016 by Chantal

Quick and insightful course that covers the basics straight-forward and simply. This course should be done by everyone, from people aspiring to further their career to mothers educating themselves to ensure healthier habits and lifestyle for their children.

Great Place to Start

Jan 25, 2016 by Andrew

This is a really great place to start and share the nutritional education journey. Jamie's video was passionate and informative without being overbearing. I've never see his video before but I'm definitely seeking him out more now to here more of his thoughts.

As I personally begin my career/lifestyle change for the better, this information is invaluable. Thank you for this program.

Interesting course

Jan 25, 2016 by Jurgita

The start of a new journey...

Jan 24, 2016 by naomi blackburn

Jamie's video inspired me immensely, I saw it before finding this course and started researching more into nurtrition from there. I have recently hit a what am I doing in life moment and have felt a bit lost and de motivated. Finding this course and researching nutrition gives excites me and I feel such a purpose in the information I have read on this course, it is starting me up on a journey of health and fufillment that I hope to one day share with others. Thank you. I don't know where this new passion will lead me to but I am grateful for what I am learning now and what I am soon to find out more about and apply to my life and share with my friends and family by being an example of what diet change and exercise can do to one's life.

Interesting course and great fun!

Jan 24, 2016 by Rebecca

Explicitly explains everything that is essential for healthy eating. Everyone who is willing to learn about healthy cooking or to promote healthy cooking should take this course. It can take you to a grand new level of education and teach you about food nutrition.

Kickstart to Healthy Living

Jan 19, 2016 by Raheema Nausheen

Sometimes it takes an illness in oneself or a dear one which urges you to discover true wellbeing and sound health. I'm highly motivated to broaden my horizon in the field of nutrition. This course gave me insight into the amazing benefits of some superfoods and simplified how to caculate the percentage of essentail nutrients.

This was great. I realize that I need to be more proactive in my nutrition in order to help others through this educational course. So grateful for what I have learned.

Start of a big future.

Jan 17, 2016 by Anthony Montgomery

This little starter course really opened my eyes to the future of health and nutrition, as I'm changing careers to become a personal trainer from being an infantry soldier, it has helped me to learn a lot in such little time that I have to study. This kind of knowledge should be taught to everyone, not just the people who volunteer to learn about nutrition.

Important information you need to know to become a better Therapist

Jan 17, 2016 by Sheena Cunningham

What I love about this course is the PRACTICALITY, and the streamlined factual content that gives you exactly what you need to learn, without any unnecessary padding! I have recommended this course to 3 of my Nutritional Therapist peers - and ALL of us absolutely love both of these courses and we LOVE the online learning environment that is provided by the Health Sciences Academy! All of the things that I am learning I am able to put into practice right away in my Clinic and it is is helping me to become a better therapist and to be of greater help to more of the people whom I treat! A lot of research and hard work has gone into making this course a GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE! I love it and I am grateful for every lesson.

Review of Starter Course

Jan 14, 2016 by Natalie Osman

The course is a brilliant introduction to nutrition and provides value insights and information on relevant and up to date issues. It will help those who have a basic understanding of nutrition ease into contact and provide a fun and interesting way to start their learning. I would recommend this to any of my friends considering studying nutrition. My vision would be to use the information I learnt on the full course to start educating both parents and children of the love and fun that can come out of understand food and its amazing qualities, both in their everyday life and how it can help prevent future diseases and assist with their present lives.

My little step to good big deal

Jan 13, 2016 by Daria

I've thought that I know a lot about healthy diet and nutrition but it doesn't right. This little course opened my eyes on different things I didn't know before - "5 a day" principe, fruits and death etc. I've understood that I need a baggage of information to become a good nutritionist. I would like to share my knowledges with people - to help them with a balanced diet and to recommend this course of course! I think these rules must be learned at school.


Jan 13, 2016 by Magdalena

I love this little course. I think it is a lovely start to learn about nutrition. Making you feel inspired to share it with people. I also love the Jane Olivier Ted talk. I realized that as a people we have a lot to learn. This it a really an eye opening talk. Making you think wider about nutrition. It is definitely worth to watch it. This was how our journey with 'food matters' began. Finally " You are what you eat. What would YOU like to be? ”
The whole course provided a large amount of information, but in the easy way, in simple words. I would recommended this to everybody. Even if English is not your first language the way the course is made making it easy to understand.

defo worth it

Jan 13, 2016 by chris

gave me a great understanding to further my study

[email protected]

Jan 12, 2016 by daniela

my number one discovery that shocked me was the jamie's video, is so sad that our children don't know what food is! Since when I m vegan I discovered how important is what we eat and my passion for healthier life! Most of the things in your course were not news for me cause i m working for a company that sell organic food and I learnt a lot from there as well but i feel that i still have to learn a lot an I would like to do a proprerly course for this. I will for sure recommend this to my friends and my family as well.

Worth It

Jan 11, 2016 by Kit Elliott

This course had valuable information in it which I enjoyed learning about. I particularly liked the weight gain assessment which gave me a good insight to my body, and the polls to see how I compared to other people. I discovered that some foods marketed on shelves contain things that are not healthy and we don't even realise it! I am going to recommend this to my family immediately and implement some of the tips and awareness of certain foods into my family's life.

Nutrition is the key to healthy living

Jan 11, 2016 by Shaikh Arib

With obesity becoming an inevitable nightmare of our lives,its high time that we start educating ourselves about health and fitness.Nutrition definately plays a key role in the overall health of the people and this certification course can be a jump start for this.
I'm looking forward to learn more from the Health sciences academy.
Thank you !

Dietary Knowledge

Jan 11, 2016 by Lisa

This free e-course contained a lot of good information. The weight gain assessment was interesting, I hadn't come across anything like that before. The unit on Components of a Balanced Diet was informative to read. I am interested in this course as a support to my Kinesiology course I have just finished studying. I will be recommending this to friends.

A great springboard course - eager to learn more

Jan 10, 2016 by Rebecca

I really enjoyed this starter nutrition course. For a short course I was glad to see that it wasn't all reading based, and that there was a video also. I had learned about essential nutrients while I was in school, but never superfoods, so that section really stood out for me. I'm excited to explore some of the superfoods I hadn't even heard of before. My favourite part of the course however, was Jamie Oliver's Ted Talk. Some of the statistics were horrifying, but it was also very thought provoking. It inspired me, as a primary school teacher, to improve how I teach food to my class. I have decided to do cooking classes for a number of weeks for Health class, to teach my students healthy and easy dishes to make. When I undertake a course I expect it to challenge me and encourage me to make changes, and this has done so. I will be recommending this course to a friend.

Very Insightful

Jan 10, 2016 by Jade Lane

I have a passion for good food. I always have had a spark inside that wants to know as much as I can about what food does to us, although I have, from time to time, indulged in fast food, sugar and chemically based sugar substitutes, I have always known I was not doing the best for myself. I not only want to have this knowledge for myself about want food does (good and bad), I also want to be able to help my family and friends and anyone who will listen, to understand that they can have a happier and healthier life if only they too had the knowledge of what they are putting into own their own bodies and the bodies of their children. In doing this short course, that spark has ignited and I am on a mission to learn and help inform as many people as I can, I want to be that person that people think "man, she went on about how bad sugar is, but she has a point". I think the most inspiring part of this course if is the Jamie Oliver TED talk, it really got me. I would recommend that everyone do the weight gain probability assessment as it offers a good insight into what you are currently eating and how to make small changes to gradually improve your overall health.


Jan 08, 2016 by Cameron

This course has a detailed description of some top super foods which I found to be very informative, I will certainly be introducing them into my diet. I also found Jamie Oliver's video to be very inspirational. I learnt a lot from the section about fats and food labelling, I was completely unaware about the low fat products and how they're not always good! Overall a short but very informative course, well worth taking. Thank you Science Academy! Will certainly recommend.

Great mini course - recommended to the fam :)

Jan 07, 2016 by Tamsyn

This popped up whilst I was applying for another course and I think the idea and information available for free is great!!! I am so passionate about all things health and fitness and in particular believe that not only children but also adults need to be educated further about the importance of nutrition on their own health! I thought the weight gain assessment was great and scored much higher than I thought I would haha! I would definitely recommend this to a friend as a bit of a health freak I drive my family and friends crazy trying to explain food labels and nutritional content to them so it would be interesting to make them try this! Will definitely use some of the super food facts in the future :)

Eye opening

Jan 07, 2016 by Sarah

I've never known what I wanted to be, professionally that is but from an early age, I've always been interested in food, and slightly obsessed with healthy eating. Recently I've been doubting my choice in studies and wanted to learn more about nutrition. And so, I found this free online course! It was very enjoyable to complete and I learnt quite a bit from it. What I found most useful was the section about how to read food labels and the page about calories per nutrient type. Overall, I thought this quick course was very helpful and I would love to expand my knowledge in this field.

The best way to start a new career in Nutrition

Jan 07, 2016 by Valentina

I really enjoyed the polls and the Jamie's video, very inspiring for everyone who is concerned about food and nutrition, like me.My number one discovery was about the food education, it missing in schools where is supposed to be in the first place to educate every children about food and cooking healthy meals.I will recommend this course to all my friends and family , because I find it very resourceful and complete.
Thank you for such an inspiring course, I consider that it is the best way to start a career as a Nutritional Therapist,I look forward to start my next course in Nutritional Therapist Professional Diploma-Level 5.

Change is Needed

Jan 07, 2016 by Vianne Cook

Hello I have just completed and passed your mini course and found it so insightful. A lot of what was said I knew but to have it confirmed was a little sad to know we are in such strife and makes me eager to help those out there who so desperately need help and guidance. I would like to get as informed as possible and your mini course just whetted my appetite. (excuse the pun)


Jan 07, 2016 by Tinaca Johnson

I thoroughly enjoyed the weight gain assessment. The content was insightful and informative, especially Jamie's video on obesity. My number one discovery is the alarming amount of sugar that we intake on a daily basis. I would highly recommend this to a friend. My personal aspirations is to obtain a healthy lifestyle. This starter nutrition course has been motivation and thought provoking. Thank you for providing me the opportunity to commence my journey to wholeness and soundness.


Jan 06, 2016 by Elisabeth Wright

Considering I'm currently a level 3 diploma in exercise and fitness student, it's always good to freshen up on nutrition AND even learn something knew :) Would recommend it as a basic start.

5 Stars For This Starter Nutrition Course

Jan 06, 2016 by Cynthia Charbonenau

Halfway through the Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisory course I thought it would be an additional bonus to check the starter nutrition course. Although it was very basic (for me), it was interesting to learn how to calculate the nutrient content of foods based on food labels using the practical assignment given, and I would HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone and everyone because it is eye opening at all levels. It's definitely encouraging me to learn more! It was also fun to see how others voted compared to myself in the polls!

Great First Experience

Jan 06, 2016 by Laran Rastelli

Came across this starter course just before I started my Sports Exercise and Nutritional Advisor course, and I must say it has been a massive help on giving me the basic knowledge I feel I will need during the larger course, and it is simply an added bonus that it is free! Sign up for it today, you've got nothing to lose and a lot to gain!

Nutrition - 5 Stars Course

Jan 06, 2016 by Mihaela Petcu

Dear Ladies, dear Gentlemen,
Thank you very much for this course! I liked a lot its content and I enjoyed very much Jamie's video also. The science reports written by Mrs. Alejandra Ruani are very interesting and very well documented on the last health studies. I was very interested on Mrs. Ruani reports on gluten issues and Paleo diet. I already recomended your courses to my medical doctors friends. I consider they need first to change their atitude to help us.
God bless you!


Jan 05, 2016 by Khushi Kansara

It was refreshing to read the course material and watch the video, also, amazing facts about the superfoods helps me to add few more learning logs to my already existing knowledge. It is a short and quick orientation as a part of nutrition course. I enjoyed reading, Thanks

Eye opening

Jan 05, 2016 by Maryann Nichols

I've been studying nutrition lightly as a hobby and thought I was doing good until I saw the weight gain questionnaire. When I had to write things down for the practical assignment that made it a little more real and now I feel like I'm committed. I have to start eating better and trying to get my family to eat better too, even if I have to hide veggies in their food!

Informative Nutrition Course

Jan 04, 2016 by Melinda

What an organized, informative beginner's course! It is full of practical information, and includes changes that we can make to our diet today. I loved the information about Superfoods! Highly recommended!


Jan 04, 2016 by Hasna

Good for studying about nutrition.

One of a kind

Jan 04, 2016 by Nicole

I enjoyed reading and learning about the Components of a balanced diet, it was a really good discovery for myself, as some food's I didn't realise existed, the polls and weight gain assessment was very insightful as I came up as medium probability which was a shock to me because I didn't realise how bad my eating habits were. I will definitely be recommending this to family members and friends so they too could improve and learn more about their health and eating habits. I currently work for a prevention service for Cardiovascular disease and the pleasure I get from helping people to improve their health before its to late or before they have to take medication for their health issues is one of the most rewarding gifts ever. Logging onto this website and learning about different food groups and what counts most helps me to give better and a deeper insight of advice and facts the clients may need, Thank you

Eye-opening Introductory Course!

Jan 03, 2016 by Tim

The content was very informative! The polls, additional links, and Jamie's video greatly added to it! I knew sugar was an issue, but didn't realize if was such a problem.

I would definitely recommend this and have already posted it to Facebook. I have challenges I'm working on overcoming and have come to realize nutrition is much more important than I ever realized! I'm learning as much as I can and implementing it into my life so I can progress as much as possible, document the results and share it with kids and adults through speaking.

Keep up the great work!

This was a very enjoyable quick study that was presented in an enjoyable format that was easy to understand. I often read health information due to a diagnosis of MS seven years ago but I still learned something new here. There is so much we are still learning about the human body and Western medicine certainly still does not have the answers for a lot of conditions. In fact it sometimes creates new problems with all the side effects. It makes sense that what we put in our bodies can affect the long term outcome. Rubbish in rubbish out.

Learning about superfoods is going to make a big difference in my life

Introductory Nutrition Course

Jan 02, 2016 by Anna Rossou

This is a great introductory course for nutrition. I especially loved the Superfoods part. I was already using some of them in my everyday nutrition so I really enjoyed learning more about then and how much they contribute to a healthy and balanced diet. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. Thank you!

Ive never compleated an distance/online course. This has been the easiest most achievable course im actually looking forward to compleating day by day. I aim for 3 moduals a day and only reason i have to walk away sometimes is to absorb the information before i read new things. Best course provider I'VE ever used.

Good recap

Dec 30, 2015 by Amit

Good little package to get you going in nutrition. It was great to recap things covered in my time at Loughborough University doing Sports Science. Hope to have my own business one day!

Starter Nutrition Course

Dec 29, 2015 by Richard Johnson

The course (and website) is full of current scientific facts, and was really well laid out, with the chance to view online or print off pdf. I like the added videos too, which added further interesting content. My number one discovery was finding out the most complete food found in nature...and the food with the highest vitamin C content! Brilliant! I will definitely recommend this course to a friend as I am extremely impressed with it. I am a sports therapist so have some knowledge of nutrition, however, what I have learned on just your starter course has shown me that I can learn so much more. I want to grow the nutrition side of my business! Thank you!


Dec 29, 2015 by Virág É. O. Haldeman

I loved learning about Superfoods. I have been incorporating them into my diet for a while now and knew they have health benefits. It was energizing to learn just how much they contribute to our optimal health and longevity. I look forward to telling about all the benefits of Superfoods to my clients hopefully soon! It was very educational to learn about the calories contribution of fat, carbs, and protein in our foods and how misleading the label can be for an average shopper. I am energized to start on my sports nutritionist program with the academy. I learned about this program from a friend and I am already spreading the word to my friends. Nutrition and eating healthy is important and what a great intro course to wake you up to better health.

Right nutrition for longer life

Dec 28, 2015 by Jackie Lynn Gallofin

From this starter nutrition course I enjoyed the weight gain assessment the most and of course the content of the course material because I learned a lot and I was enlightened to make changes in my lifestyle and eating habits. I discovered many complete foods that surprised me and I am happy to recognize them which will surely benefit my health and avoid unwanted sugar and fats. I appreciate learning how to calculate energy and calories which made me aware of the number of servings I must take when it comes to eating healthy foods. I will surely recommend this starter nutrition course to my family and friends and it will be my privilege to share these knowledge to them. One day if given the chance I would love to study more on health related courses because besides having a rewarding career I will be able to apply the knowledge in my life and in my journey towards a longer life which should be the ultimate goal of all.


Dec 26, 2015 by Stevie Arrand

a very good course have learnt a lot from it and am very pleased and will be coming back to be doing some more courses

Nice and better than other

Dec 24, 2015 by Rahid Bashir

I recommend this course to other because it provides a great knowledge about Nutrition . Thanks

Great course

Dec 24, 2015 by Tom Snyder

I really learned alot about nutrition.

An interesting free starter nutritional course

Dec 24, 2015 by Andrea

A quick and practical starter nutritional course with interesting information to understand the basics of nutrition and start improving your diet. It is hosted on a easy to use IT platform.
If you were mainly interested in the final certificate, be aware that the standard one is pretty poor and you are asked to pay an extra fee to get a proper certificate.
With a proper certificate included, it would be five stars.

Great starting point, info made simple

Dec 23, 2015 by Mark

An easy to follow beginners course with information presented in a simple way - which is always the best way!
Lots of confusion around nutrition but this will give you clear, basic information to start eating healthier and more balanced.

Absolutely the greatest online learning centre i've ever see

Dec 22, 2015 by Honda choong

The straight-to-the-point and concise information helped me a lot in understanding nutrition. Strongly recommended.


Dec 21, 2015 by Modiri MOnkangwo

Extremely good introductory course on nutrition. I have learned a lot even though I had knowledge on nutrition. I can't believe so much information in this little introduction. I am so eager to begin my course as nutritional therapist.

An investment

Dec 21, 2015 by BRIDGET

This was a great beginner's course and an excellent introduction into Nutrition. And the best thing is that its free, do the course, a worthwhile investment.xx

A Healthy world

Dec 19, 2015 by Wasim Akram

Hi, feels good to be a part of this program. Wants to grab this oppurtunity.
I would rate 4.5 star.


Dec 18, 2015 by Dominic Pegg

The course, was amazing and so informative for such a small starter course. I have learnt so much already and look forward to carrying on my studies to help people as much as possible. The polls made it very interesting and actually made you realise how many people may also actually be thinking or doing the same as you.

Great Beginner's Course

Dec 18, 2015 by Paula

This was a great beginner's course with basic information about heatlh, diet and figuring out food labels, etc. A great one to share with a young person in your life to start our kids off better with education about healthy food habits.

Sports Studies

Dec 18, 2015 by Mark Johnson

An excellent introduction into the study of Nutrition and a fantastic learning resource for students.

Nutritional Therapist

Dec 18, 2015 by Marie

I loved this! It gave me a lot of new information, while at the same time putting what I already knew into simple and understandable terms that I can relay back to family, friends and clients.
I learned that I am on the perfect track and that I am doing what I need to do. It really gave me the visuals to see where I can improve and where I need to be to stay on track.
I am very eagar to get my certifications so that I can help others see how easy it really is to be healthy, and how delicious it can be as well.

I am happy that I found this and I will definitely come back :-) Waiting for the free scholarship now ;-) best regards from Croatia


Dec 15, 2015 by Katie

Very informative and enjoyable.

A good start

Dec 15, 2015 by Jonny

I enjoyed the information and test, have felt i have gained from it. Would of like more of a test to be honest. I found interesting working out the calories, and the food label calculations also the health benefits. Just shows that some companies really are deceptive to the public. I work as a chef and have really got into raw food, and vegan, vegetarian cooking, at first diners are apprehensive and now they are embracing it. I think more knowledge we have and cooking with different healthy cooking methods, we can not only help ourselves to live, longer fuller lives but also to help our planet

Eager to help the public

Dec 12, 2015 by Esther

There is so much about nutrition and weight loss knowledge i couldnt get it from textbooks or teacher. This starter nutrition course itself provides the gist of the importance to our health, very informative! I would love to share what i have learned here with everyone!


Dec 11, 2015 by Carla

This was a great way to begin thinking about nutrition and what all these new food fads mean. What I should really be doing versus what the media might be telling me to do. Gives me the opportunity to make up my own mind


Dec 10, 2015 by Hannah

This free course was an amazing insight as to what this company can do. They supply excellent information about nutrition and will defiantly be recommending it to others

Free Starter Nutrition Course

Dec 10, 2015 by Aidan

This starter course is definitely worth taking for the fact will will help you better understand how you can improve your current diet and the guidelines to help you easily make the switch and because its FREE! My best discoveries on the course where the 10 super foods which I will be trying and that foods labelled as lower fat may not be healthy because of the added sugars instead! I would and will be recommended this course to all my friends and family.


Dec 10, 2015 by Vanessa MacDonald Renaud

This course is simply amazing! If you want to take this course as a career change or simply for your personal lifestyle I highly recommend this course! As someone who is about to have her first child in three months it was important to me to educate myself in the nutrition field. I have gained such a passion for this field through the Health Science Academy that I am thinking about adding my nutrition studies as a second career!

This is such a blessing; Dont miss out !

Ready to learn more

Dec 09, 2015 by Georgia Pathy

This course was an excellent foundation for nutritional information for all knowledge levels. It was certainly eye-opening at times, with nutritional content information!

Learning how to practically calculate the nutritional proportions within each food type was fantastic, and actually completely different to how I have always done it myself!

I now am looking forward to pursuing more nutritional education, especially for athletes and professional sportspersons.

interesting course

Dec 08, 2015 by Abbas

This is the first time i get interesting course because there is a lot of practical things, where you can try what you learned on your self directly. i think my friends should to make this course because it is good one and there is a lot of interesting information.
the most thing i like it was the video where there is a lot of practical things and i get by it some new informations.
thank you so much
best regards.

Awareness starts from birth

Dec 08, 2015 by Michelle Ho

What I enjoyed most about the course is the emphasis on evidence and science that has been peer reviewed. There are many sources of information on cyberspace that can be misleading and in fact dangerous.

Through the readings in this course, I am able to see arguments from different school of thoughts but able to better discern what may be best applicable for me. For example, gluten sensitivity and if gluten free is truly best for all across the board. (NO!).

I would definitely recommend this course to a friend. In fact, I have just posted Jamie's TED video on my facebook page.

I do hope to build more awareness in my community and maybe even pursue a career as a nutrition consultant in future. I love to cook and bake for my friends and family.

Starter Nutrition Course

Dec 08, 2015 by Derek Shields

Thanks a lot for this excellent and straightforward introduction to nutrition. I really enjoyed it as in many ways it took different tracks from the courses I have done previously.

Informative, Inspiring and Motivating!

Dec 08, 2015 by Mish Madison

Very informative course on the basics of nutrition, healthy eating and the sources of hidden sugars in our diets. I especially liked the links to the supplemental articles at the end of each lesson and the food label calculators. I was also very inspired by Jamie Oliver's TED talk. I'm overweight right now and in the process of making a huge career change from a series of sedentary jobs to certified nursing assistant and I need my body to be in shape and healthy. There are people out there I can help and I want to be healthy enough to do that. The things I learned here will definitely help me to make better food choices and follow through with the healthy lifestyle changes I need to make in order to reach those goals. I'd recommend this course to anyone wanting to improve themselves or their family's health through proper nutrition or who might be curious about a career as a nutritionist or weight-loss coach. Thank you, Health Sciences Academy!


Dec 07, 2015 by PIERINA

I highly recommend this excellent course to anyone who is interested in their health in order to live long and happier.
This short course is absolutely very helpful and it definitely makes you think about how much know about the concept of what is the most healthier for you.

New ideas

Dec 07, 2015 by Caleb

A very insightful course, considering it is free!
So many nutrition courses cost so much money, but why? we all want to get fitter and healthier so why not make all this information free to the public.
This short course has given me a few ideas to do just that!

Very Informative!

Dec 06, 2015 by Sonia

This course is a great way to refresh your brain when it comes to the basics of good nutrition. I particularly enjoyed the weight gain assessment and practical assignments. Also, before this course I did not have any idea about the wonderful benefits discussed about some of the super foods. Overall, I think this makes for a great course for everyone as we all need to tend our nutritional needs.

A great place to start and learn

Dec 04, 2015 by Matt

I found this course to be excellent in all aspects. As someone who knew very little about Nutrition, I now feel I know enough to understand the basics and this has made me eager to learn more.

The course was laid out extremely well, very easy to follow and 'absorb' the information provided. Will definitely be recommending this course to others.

We are all walking blindly towards an obesity epidemic, along with other serious illnesses. We all need to take a step back, take a long hard look at what we eat and our eating habits and make a change for the good before its too late.

Much better than expected

Dec 03, 2015 by Andreea

I found this course to be very useful and learned a lot more than I was expecting.
The best part is that it is very well structured so the information actually stayed with me and I didn't lose interest once.
I also found the calculator to be very interesting, will definitely use it.
Will recommend this course to other people as well as I find it to be a very good plus for yoga teachers like me and other fitness trainers.
Thank you very much!

Eye Opener

Dec 02, 2015 by Ewnet D

This was a great introductory course. It's a great eye opener to the reality of our society and the world's obesity epidemic, as well as the lack of knowledge of proper health and nutrition in every generation. The course made me want to take better care of my health as well as those around me. I will definitely be pursing more knowledge in this area and hopefully turn this into a passionate project.

Great Starting Point

Dec 02, 2015 by Tom

This course is a great starting point for anyone who wishes to learn or build on their current knowledge on nutrition. There's some great information and statistics that will surprise you with the chance to even self assess your own nutritional intake. I'm looking forward to learning more and applying this daily to help other as well as in my own diet.


Dec 02, 2015 by clarel mamode

very good, I was confident the site ,makes it very easy to work

Starter Nutrition Course

Dec 01, 2015 by Stephanie Bourner

I loved this short course. I have been thinking for a while about doing something to do with nutrition that would not only help me with the choices I make where food is concerned but also so that I could use to help others that struggle with their food choices and/or weight. Will definitely be continuing my journey I just have to decide which course to take next. I will also be telling friends and family and hopefully very soon I will be sharing so much more information with so many other people.

Such an insightful starter into the world of nutrition

Dec 01, 2015 by Jack

In the time that it took me to complete this course I have certinly reignited my passion for healthy living and wellbeing. Some of the facts in the Components of a balanced diet information pack were shocking, I couldnt believe the statistic about overweight adults by 2015. The polls between the course materials were very insightful and satisfied my curiosity into how everybody else was doing on the course. I would definitely recommend this course to a friend in the hope that I would have a friend as like minded as me in keeping healthy and feeling good about yourself. Not to mention bouncing ideas off each other and learning more. With this and hopefully more courses on nutrition in the future I can experiment with my new found knowledge and combine it with my passion and degree in psychology and possibly go on to study sport and exercise psychology and nutrition in athletes.
Thank you The Health Sciences Academy

Great Course

Dec 01, 2015 by Danny Fowle

makes you want to learn more and exceed in the industry.

An eye opener

Dec 01, 2015 by Michelle Podany

This short little part of the course I took was definitely helpful and it definitely makes you think about what you eat and drink. You will definitely want to start choosing better options if you are not already. I want to learn more of this info not only for my own benefit but to pass along to family, friends and whoever else I can help.

Review for starter Nutrition Course

Nov 30, 2015 by Nicolas Legendre

The Course was ineresting and would inspire me to learn more about nutrition

Knowledge is power

Nov 30, 2015 by Stephanie Licence

This course is fantastic if you are looking for a beginners insight to the way nutrition impacts us.

I have always been one of those people who follows the latest fad diets and celebrity endorsed plans, but this course gives you an understanding as to how to begin creating a healthy lifestyle and guidelines to follow. I think it's shocking how misleading food labels are and how just implementing a few changes can make such a difference. It was always great to learn about all the benefits of 'superfoods' as you hear the term being thrown around but with no explanation as to what makes these foods 'super'.

I have already completed a couple of the courses that The Health Science Academy has to offer and would love to further my knowledge so that I can merge my this with a career in personal training and fitness to help people that struggle with nutrition and exercise.

Awesome course!

Nov 30, 2015 by Marc Andrews

This course is great for anybody looking to get a better understanding of nutrition. Whether you are looking to increase your knowledge for your personal wellbeing or as a starting point to go on and do further nutrition courses I highly recommend this course to you.

Healthy Ways of Loosing Weight

Nov 30, 2015 by Anita

I have been trying to loose weight in the past few years. I have seen so many commercial advertisements and ways of loosing weight online or on social networks. Among those, I personally only believe in loosing weight through counting calories intake and doing regular exercise. So, I started reading about nutrition here and there and I didn't find a complete source of information in one place. Then, I found this "Starter Nutrition Course " last week and it gave me some valuable information which I didn't know previously.
Now, I would like to learn more about nutrition through other courses. By doing more advanced courses, I believe that I can make myself more knowleageable in this field so that I can help my family members having more healthier life style. Finally, my aim is to have a new career in this field so that I can help other people to be more aware of the foods they eat which in turn they can loose their weight through healthy ways.


Nov 28, 2015 by Elizabeth Shuba

Clearly written course, great layout.


Nov 25, 2015 by Liyana van Wyk

I was interested in changing my career but was doubtful as Nutrition didn't have much to offer at first, when I came across The Health Sciences Academy I was absolutely amazed.
I have done their free Starter nutrition course as well as their Nutritional Therapy course and it has just made me want to dive into all the courses they have available!

I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a career change or wants to know more about what their body needs. Since taking this course my family and most importantly my kids have had a 100% change in their lives.

I thank you all for the fast knowledge you share with us

Kindest Regards,

Liyana van Wyk


Nov 25, 2015 by Kanchan Gautam

Satisfactory, learned good lessons.

Interesting, insightful and inspirational

Nov 24, 2015 by Nickie Le Roy Chen

What a interesting introduction to nutrition. Having been travelling for a year, I have witnessed so many different cultures and with that different foods! This course has now given me a better understanding of why people in different countries live longer, healthier lives...all that beautiful fresh food! This has inspired me to gain a qualification in nutrition and to open my own fresh street food stall which will hopefully combine my love of food with my healthy eating passions!
The weight gain assessment was a brilliant way to start as it got me thinking about my nutrition and then I proceeded to ask all my family members...follow that with the content in the components of a balanced diet which was insightful and easily accessible! Jamie's inspirational video is the perfect way to conclude the course.
The element that surprised me the most which will change the way I look at and buy my food is the food label calculations - they are currently very misleading!
I have already recommended this course to 2 of my friends as it has made me think more about what bad habits I have that perhaps I didn't know about! If you, like I, am interested in food then this is a great introduction to nutrition...give it a go!
Great course, great content and a great layout!

Understanding Food

Nov 24, 2015 by Georgina Hambling

A great beginner course for those wanting to know more about the nutritional properties of food and how your diet can be improved to achieve a healthier body. I thoroughly enjoyed the course (superfoods from all over the world, and weight gain management depending which day you weigh yourself, Jamie Oliver is very inspiring) and would recommend it to anyone and everyone who is interested in having better health. I am very keen to raise awareness of how important it is to know what we eat and why.

Do yourself a favor

Nov 23, 2015 by Panagiotis Kalatzis

I have alwatys been a restless spirit as a personality. Especially in health and fitness issues I constantly look for new information and competences to build a better background for my spirit and body.
The starter course was an excellent introduction to the world of nutrition. Basic terms such as essential nutrients, energy consumption, superfoods etc. are fundamental to continue the nutrition journey and this course can be really helpful on this.
The pdf and video material was very focused and concise - time well spent.
I am already enthusiastic to the perspective of following the sequels of this lesson!!
A big thank you to the organizing scientific committee.

We have a lot to learn!

Nov 23, 2015 by Tracey Ball

I read a lot of articles on health and nutrition, fitness and supplements. There's so much out there that it starts to become overwhelming for me and I don't know what to believe. Rather than continue reading opinions I decided it's best to start learning the facts straight from the professionals!

Even with this Starter Course I was able to learn about Camu Berries - I had never heard of them before! Originally I would have said that Carbs gave the most energy but I would have been wrong if I hadn't read through the short, easy to read lessons.

It took me around twenty minutes to read through and complete the course. I'm really surprised at how much information there was and how easy it was to take it in and I'm easily distracted!

If you have a genuine interest in learning how to better yourself with an understanding of healthy living, give it a go and share it amongst your loved ones.

No longer a beginner!

Nov 23, 2015 by Natalia

By joining the starter course, I get to know bits of nutrition here and there - this just grow my passion for Nutrition. I love how the Health Science Academy put the questionnaires in the early hours, so that I can learn more about myself. By time, I start applying what is so called as Starter nutrition course to what actually happen to me.

Can't wait for the time that I can use my (future) advance knowledge to others.

Information that is easy to pass on and immediately apply

Nov 22, 2015 by Rhiannon

Healthy food choices can be made with a few simply changes and a handful of facts that we can apply to our shopping and cooking. This course gives very usable information and is a great starting point from which the individual can progress. (I made a cacao hot chocolate with home made almond milk and honey to drink whilst watching Jamie Oliver who is a true inspiration!!) delicious!!!

Insightful Course

Nov 22, 2015 by Taliah Chen

Nutrition is of huge interest for me. I have gluten intolerance, and having a balanced healthy diet is not always the easiest. I want to be able to help people whom are wanting to improve their nutrition and lifestyles. This was a great starter course,it was insightful from helping you to learn to read labels, to Jamie's TED Talk. I am looking forward to learning so much more!

Attractive Brilliant Course!

Nov 22, 2015 by Wan Rizqi Saragih

It was a really good course which was worth taking. Important basic information about nutrition was provided and it was very easy to learn for me and I'm sure it would be for anybody else. It was presented attractively in a way that people would enthusiastically learn about them with all those pictures which made it really helpful. This made it easy to learn.

It's not easy to decide which part of this course that I enjoyed the most because I really enjoyed and was really pleased with each part of this course. But if I really have to decide, I enjoyed the tests and the assignments the most as it was challenging and fun. I was also inspired by Jamie Oliver's TED Talk. My number one discovery would be about the superfoods as they were so interesting to learn about.

I would definitely recommend this to my friends and I'd love to help people starting from my family. Thanks to this course, now, I have a much deeper much understanding. My short-term goal is to be a personal trainer and this course might help me to get into it.

Thank you The Health Sciences Academy!

Basic Nutrition Course

Nov 21, 2015 by Debra Boggs

Excellent course gives you information enough to begin making positive changes in your life and the lives of your loved ones. Highly recommend.

Look good, feel good!

Nov 21, 2015 by Anaisa Dones

This course was completely helpful, you can learn the basics about food and a healthy diet, I've been going to the gym since the year started, but I've never gone with a nutritionist, this is the beginning of a great journey, Jamie is 100% right, in order to live healthy, you need to grow up knowing about what you eat.

Jamie and the Superfoods!

Nov 20, 2015 by Tahgasa Bertram

The whole course has been an eye-opener. I particularly liked Jamie Olivers video and the section on superfoods.

Nutritional Short Course

Nov 20, 2015 by Murray Kovesy

Awesome starter course perfect for any one interested in health and nutrition. Great to add to short courses undertaken.

Great learning

Nov 19, 2015 by Patricia Weigert

Great information and extra information links also great starter learning tool!

Nutrition Insight

Nov 19, 2015 by Taylor

A fantastic course teaching you the basics of nutrition in a way that is easy for anybody to understand. My number one discovery was learning how to read food labels correctly. It will make you want to study nutrition further. I will be recommending it to my family who are equally as interested in nutrition. I plan to use this information on improving my own nutrition.

Starter Course

Nov 19, 2015 by Gemma Ransom

Easy to follow, plenty of extra material. Brilliant thanks!

Personal Trainer

Nov 18, 2015 by Meng Murphy

I enjoyed Jamie's video the most. I discovered the number one cause of most deaths is diet based. I will definitely recommend this course to all my personal training clients as it forms a good base to build a healthy body. It is inspirational and exactly what I wanted to do in NZ: to reduce the obesity rate targeting the Mums at home as most of them are the ones in control of what go into the plate for lunch and dinner. Dinner in front of TV should be banned as we should all have a proper sitting down dinner with the family with knives and forks!!

Great Study

Nov 18, 2015 by Anthony

This has been the most enjoyable course I have done and I look forward in doing another course with you soon.

Changing my life!

Nov 17, 2015 by Nadia

The free course is an excellent way to inform people like me who are interested in studying Nutrition, but feel bombarded by all the information and courses available on the internet. I signed up and ended up finishing it within a couple of hours, reading and going through almost all the extra links. It was binding, informative and made me 'hungry' for more!

I've had a strong interest in health and nutrition for years now, but pushed it aside after school as I didn't have the courage to pursue it. Years later my passion for Nutrition has not only become something I love to read about, but turned into a complete obsession! Pair that with training, and I can keep myself busy for hours on the internet reading up about it. It consumes my mind and thoughts completely! I would love to help people, I have so much understanding now for those that have been or who are going through what I have experienced regarding food and how it can keep you captive if you don't understand the basic principles. I know I can make a difference!

My passion and dream is to make this a full time career, but I am a Graphic Designer with limited funds and quite frankly don't know where to even begin. I feel trapped in my current situation. I hope The Health Sciences Academy is the answer I have been looking for all these years!

Great for beginners!

Nov 17, 2015 by Renae

Great starter course. Easy to follow and in plain english. Will be sharing with my family, friends & clients. Thank you for giving me an easy way to help people get the basics of nutrition for self reflection.

good basic course

Nov 15, 2015 by siddharth

a good course for beginners who want to know abt nutrition..what we should eat and what we might be doing wrong in our diet.


Nov 13, 2015 by Vipul shah

I enjoyed everything. The number discovery to be able to read labels correctly now. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
I want to share info on health & nutrition to everyone I know and others, also I want to do something about health related problems people are facing.

Food, Nutritious and Delicious.

Nov 12, 2015 by Eric McKenzie

I'm tired of Big Food poisoning the world with their bliss point magic. People have to stop buying soy and corn products in order for things to change. The more I learn about nutrition, the better cook I've become. I want to learn more about the effects food has on the body. The microbiome is especially interesting to me. Nutrient absorption is also fascinating, enzymes, bacteria, food combining all play a role. I just skim the surface but I'd like to dig deeper. I've enjoyed the info you've given me thus far. Please give me more.


Nov 12, 2015 by Karen Ford

Brilliant starter course, very informative I have learnt a lot.

Excellent course, focus may need to bend with current research

Nov 12, 2015 by Kim Cody

This was a very good starter course. It provided a large amount of information, but the way it was presented was conducive to remembering it quickly. It presented a would-be new-to-nutrition reader with the basics without bogging them down in too much scientific detail. This made it easy to learn. Everything down to the graphics and style made it user friendly.

I was very pleased to Jamie Oliver's TED talk making it in to the nutrition starter course. I feel strongly that his message speaks honestly about our responsibilities as adults for our and our children's health. The amount of added sugar in supposedly "healthy" foods is nothing short of shocking. He helps people, everyday men and women, see that the realm of nutrition is important and approachable, and that so many metabolism related diseases are preventable.

As a very mild criticism, there was an implication in the text that fat is not good for you. It does, accurately, say that fat is an essential nutrient, but it also goes on to suggest that low fat foods and low fat diets are of benefit to weight loss and health. I have recently read a considerable amount of new research suggesting that this is not the case and that higher levels of healthy, naturally occurring dietary fats (not hydrogenated/processed etc.) are better for us, for reducing LDL cholesterol and improving mental wellbeing and cognitive function as well as lowering liver triglyceride levels. I feel like these sections should be reflected on and updated as required. It is clear, however, that the authors are very knowledgeable about their subject.

I enjoyed taking the polls, interactive tasks are always great to get people involved, and it's certainly a good tactic to educate people about this subject. I felt engaged and invested in my task.

Other than that, the statistics cited about obesity were nothing short of shocking. An incredible number of people are ill, simply because of the food they eat. We need more people educated about food, nutrition and well-being in order to stop the obesity epidemic in its tracks. It kills thousands in the UK and Ireland every year. We have to do more. Hopefully, courses like this will help.

For my own part, I was diagnosed as insulin resistant when I was a teenager. However, I never paid attention as I didn't know much about the condition, only knowing I would feel sleeping after eating, especially sugary foods. In university, it got worse, as my levels of alcohol consumption rose, as too my diet of processed and "quick" foods. During this time, I packed on stones in weight and developed extreme anxiety and became increasingly depressed. I always had a good idea of what a healthy diet SHOULD look like. In general, I thought my diet wasn't bad, I cooked a lot of my own meals and drank water etc. When I finally decided to take control and began researching nutrition several years ago, I was absolutely shocked at the damage so many perceived "healthy" foods were doing to my body. In the last year I have been on a mission to take control of my health. I can only say that it's working. Packing my diet full of fresh vegetables, good fats and protein has given me a new lease of life. Everyone has commented on it. I am happier than ever.

This has inspired me, given me a drive, to share what I have learned with other people. I am starting off small, talking under the radar to my family, friends and coworkers. But I want to do more. I want to be qualified so that I can help more people. I want them to know that they can take back control of their life. Enjoy life again, not just accept it as it is.

I believe food is our medicine, first and foremost, for both body and mind. I hope I can share that message.

The course had some really interesting and useful beginner information on nutrition. This is a great taster to see where you are in your own lifestyle choices and where this could be improved, as well as highlighting the importance of these changes. The Jamie Oliver talk was also very inspiring, Thank you.

Very informative

An Essential Grounding In Basic Nutrition

Nov 07, 2015 by Cj Swaby

This course is an essential grounding in basic nutrition. What I enjoyed about the course was that is was simple, yet highly informative, with practical and actionable steps. It managed to take a potentially confusing topic and make it accessible. While most of it was a welcome form of revision for me, a lot of it wasn't and provided invaluable information. As a recent vegetarian (for health reasons) I found the section on superfoods extremely helpful. In my coaching practice my aim is to get across to clients the importance of nutrition, not only in changing how we look, but the impact on our health, mood, sex life and overall day to day performance. This course is a perfect introduction for that, and highly recommend.

Good Introductory course for beginners

Nov 06, 2015 by Dibyendu Sharma

The course presentation is simple and I enjoyed the systematic approach about the course that includes foundation to beginners in this field. The course may be an essential foundation who wish to gain knowledge in this field and I will definitely recommend this to my known who wish to know about nutrition. I am happy to complete the course and wish to do more such course of this and higher level in my life-time. Though I considered learning is a never ending process, and therefore, my strong belief that I will continue to learn more with time and progressively implement the knowledge for better lives of mine and others who come for the same.
Thank You

Great way to refresh what I learnt eight years ago, has wet my appetite to increase my knowledge further to enable me to help others!!

Great starting point

Nov 04, 2015 by Chris

A solid starting point into the science of nutrition. Easy to follow and certainly wets the appetite for further courses.


Nov 04, 2015 by MEGHANA

It was worth taking part in this course . I enjoyed weight gain assessment and super foods part the most . In today's scenario its becoming necessity to educate public about nutrition to combat NCDs . So for that i always look forward for such courses to increase my knowledge level so as to spread it to public . And this opportunity i obtained from health science academy .

Great starter course

Nov 02, 2015 by Julia

Great starter course into the subject although I would question the superfoods section. I wish it would have also included some more critical voices about them.
Enjoyed the course though and learned some basics I didn't know. Well designed and easy to do.

I really enjoyed this short course. I'm hoping to excel in my knowledge to go forward in another career and have further learning. i can't wait for the next challenge!

Great Introduction to Nutrition

Oct 30, 2015 by Alison

This is a wonderful little course to get you started on the road to better health or indeed a fabulous new career!

I found the course easy to understand, well presented & full of information. I was certainly surprised to find out that the terms such as 'LIGHT' on food items are not regulated & thus are misleading as they can be used on higher fat foods!!! One of my favourite parts of the course was a practical assignment to calculate the nutrient content of a product found in my kitchen. We can all read the backs of products but the calculations I learnt from the course provide valuable knowledge on how to calculate the particular percentage of fat, carbohydrate, protein in a certain food - something I had never done before!

I am continuing my knowledge of nutrition by completing the Nutritional Therapist course, I am excited to be able to take great care of my health through nutrition & I would also love to help others too - a fabulous new career may just be on the horizon for me, which I am super excited about!

Free nutrition course

Oct 30, 2015 by Leah

Weight gain assessment is where I enjoyed the most, and the modules is very easy to learn, unlike the lecture notes, it contains interesting facts which motivate me to learn.
Will recommend to friends by giving them the weight gain assessment to begin with. My profession is an Acupuncturist, want to change people lives and give them hope and chance to look healthier and fit, so they can wear their dream clothes before is too late!
This free nutrition course has motivate me to learn their other course.

Oct 29, 2015 by Anouk

Very useful and informative course. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get some essential and basic information about what food are essential and good for you. Education is key to change peoples' behaviour and sharing your knowledge and experience with them can help many. I thank the team for making this course accessible.

Excellent Introductory course

Oct 28, 2015 by Craig Donaldson

I have taken an interest in nutrition as I would like to further my knowledge in this areas and to help others and this has served as a great introduction. The slides and information is well written and has persuaded to look at their more advanced courses.

free nutrition course

Oct 27, 2015 by Yousra

I really enjoyed the weight gain assessment. It made me realise how minimal routine changes can decrease the possibility of weight gain. My number one discovery was the superfoods. I am considering starting adding many of them to my diet. I have recommend this to friend, whom is obese and I think this might change her life. I have always wanted to become a clinical nutritionist or a dietitian, so i think this might be a good start. I aspire to end obesity and all diet related diseases that are killing us slowly.


Oct 27, 2015 by Dr Robert Stevens

'Prevention rather than cure'. I have been a medical doctor now for 20 years, I qualified as a personal trainer a couple of years ago because of an interest in preventative medicine, realizing the importance of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle in health.
There is so much misinformation out there and the current NHS guidelines are out of date!
Through up to date research and common sense we can start to break down these barriers and start to affect a positive change.
Companies such as the Health Science Academy allow a platform for this to happen!

Compelling introduction to nutrition

Oct 27, 2015 by Maria

This course was very informative and I most enjoyed the compelling lecture delivered by Jamie Oliver as well as the section detailing the top ten Superfoods. We are very fortunate to have an environment that can supply all of our nutritional needs through such wholesome natural resources.
My number one discovery was learning that Raw Cacao is the highest antioxidant food on the planet. I learnt valuable information and will be recommending this course to both friends and family as well as any future clients that I may acquire as I plan to start a career as a Nutritional Advisor/Therapist. I will definitely be continuing my education with The Health Sciences Academy and look forward to learning as much as possible about nutrition.

life changing

Oct 24, 2015 by Pranav prajapati

Well I enjoyed the most was that Jamie Oliver showed his absolute passion about diet and how today's lifestyle has caused our children to know nothing about nutrition and all it takes is a little bit of education and you can change millions of lives in fact you can save millions of lives.and when I'm fully educated and have The professional certifications that this course will give me it is my ambition to speak to schools and is make to children aware of the adverse affects of what fast food is doing to be bodies and how easy it is to change their lifestyle and to live more active and healthy lifestyles. This nutritional course was a very good first step in empowering me to wards my future goals i'm just going to follow where ever my Heat takes me.

"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"

Oct 20, 2015 by william

To quote Barry sears, founder of the Zone Diet, "Its easier to change one's religion, than one's diet". That encapsulates in a nutshell how difficult it can be for people to change their lifestyle, as creatures of habit or the inclination to find the best and most trusted nutritional information sources available. With so many types of diets and so many food plates and pyramids, we have to use our knowledge and critical thinking. I am a great believer that the best diet for "you" is the best diet for "You". What I mean is that you have you look at diet in relation to an individuals unique health status and their nutritional needs.
The challenge that this introductory nutrition course presents is one of identifying much of the unhealthy "orthodox" dietary advice that the FSA "Food Standards Agency" and the Government has supported to the detriment of a largely ignorant and badly educated general public, while junk food and foods of low nutritional value, have been marketed as "Good" foods by the food manufacturing industry. As Jamie Oliver said "They call Foods low fat, when in fact they are full of sugar" and sugar is really glucose which stimulates insulin secretion which is a "Fat Storage" Hormone, and driver of cellular inflammation via "AA" Aracadonic acid and PGe2 Prostaglandins cascade.
The Challenge to Nutritionists in the 21st Century will be honesty to the research they undertake, to be bold and innovative, pushing foward the boundaries of knowledge and never to be bought by the interests of Big Food companies who's bottom line is Profit not Health.!

Just great! ;)

Oct 19, 2015 by Elsa

Your Starter Nutrition course is just great! Why? Because it's outstanding through its simplicity and ease to follow. At the same side it includes a wide range of vital information, thus giving a great overview and basic knowledge of the field of nutrition counseling. I will definitely recommend this course to all my friends, family members and in my online networks, as the knowledge given is very helpful for anyone to improve their health, no matter if they want to work as nutritionists or simply acquire some knowledge for their personal health. 5++++ stars!
To build a more profound base for my work as nutritionist(which I am just in the process to start since a few weeks) I'll definitely enjoy to take part in any other courses you offer! ;)

Knowledge is the key to nutrition

Oct 17, 2015 by Sthefany Luna

This starter Nutrition course is very easy and straightforward. It is a complete guide to start understanding what's involved in a Nutrition's career. I really enjoyed Unit 3 of these course as I am crazy about super-foods, they are amazing for your body and health.

However Unit one was also very interesting about having a balance diet and essential nutrients. I feel like the more I learn about nutrition the more I realised I have been living in the dark. That is why it is so interesting. Not to mention Jamie's video which is eye opening. There are just so many foods out there harmful to our health that we do not know who to trust.

My number one discovery was finding out that bee pollen was the most complete food in nature!. It might seem silly out of all the things I learnt but it was just such an mind blowing fact. Its incredibly how the best things for us are in nature.

I have already recommend this crash course to everyone I know! So yes, definitely I think its a great course.

I have been thinking of studying a nutrition course for over long while now but haven't been able to for different reasons. A year ago I was one of those people that will order take out, eat process, junk food and a lot of alcohol. But my body and my health were not very happy with me therefore I decided to change. Change it's scary specially if your are a foodie (like I was). Wondering if you'll ever find meals that will be fulfilling as the ones you are used to but guess what you DO! You really DO!

Now I am a vegetarian and crazy about healthy foods. I cook my own meals and share all of my healthy eating with friends and family. Trying to get let them see how amazing and tasty healthy foods are.

My goal is to help others become healthier and happier people. I want to surround myself with like-minded people and have an impact in people and interest them in a healthier lifestyle. So thank you very much for providing this course :) It is great that more and more people are aware about their health.

Eye Opening

Oct 17, 2015 by Marlee Disney

I recommend this starter course for absolutely everyone. It was easy to follow, not too long without skimping over important information and had loads of handy tips and downloads that I will continuously come back to. Jamie Oliver's TED Talk put lots of things into perspective and I hope that one day, when I become a Naturopath, I too, can implement such positive changes in others' lives. Thank you very much Health Sciences Academy for making this course available to the public.

Great Start

Oct 16, 2015 by Grant Tipler

Very interesting and informative. Had some good interactive parts as well. Jamie's video in particular was great. Having been pretty unhealthy for most of my younger years diet as well as personal fitness has become a big part of my life. I discovered thankfully that I am not too far away from being in the 'SAFE' zone but still need to keep working towards it. The information in the course is a great way to get the ball rolling. Now just need to stock up on those Superfoods.

I highly endorse and recommend this course to anyone who is looking to enhance their knowledge of the health and fitness world. What I enjoyed most was the comprehensive approach to adult learning with the combination of reading materials, quizzes and videos. My number one discovery was that I could learn to listen to my body's needs and trust my gut instinct. I am using this material to widen my education to help others get on tract with their health through my fitness class. Eating right and exercises is attainable for anyone! It doesnt have to be hard or complicated! This course puts your mind at ease and clarifies information in an user friendly format that anyone can do.

I enjoy the systematic way the courses are laid out. I like to work at my own pace & this allows just that. I have only taken 3 of the basic courses and each bring with it pearls of wisdom that could be employed to enhance a career or just share around the dinner table. People need to take food seriously....These courses can be the perfect pathway for that education.

Fantastic Starter Course

Oct 08, 2015 by Emma Millward

This course is fantastic for people who are looking to broaden their knowledge in nutrition for their own benefit or to look at a career change this is a great course to get your foot on the bottom rung on the ladder.

Good starting point

Oct 06, 2015 by Renee

This course is a great starting point to increasing your nutritional knowledge or to review information presented long ago. It is intriguing to learn how impactful the simple act of increasing your vegetable intake can be on your health and on warding off disease. I have already recommended this several times to friends interested in moving forward in their careers and/or in improving their personal health. Although I have taken several classes in nutrition over the years, I can honestly say that the Health Science Academy has provided invaluable information that I had not learned in any of my prior courses. I work with medically fragile, low income individuals and began passing on information from the HSA courses from day one. I can't wait to keep learning and sharing.

A Basic Start

I find this course very resourceful and full of interesting and useful facts about food and nutrients. I have enjoyed an overall content of the course. Top ten superfoods are definitely my number one discovery and starting now I will tend to consume them more often. This course provided me with a lot of useful information that will help me in my nutrition-change. One day I hope I will be able to help other people in their nutrition and give them the best information about health and nutrition, just like you helped me.

Absolutely fantastic :)

Oct 05, 2015 by Matthew

Couldn't have asked for a better course. Cannot believe what we have for free these days and we still don't know the important knowledge of food.

Great for basic knowledge

Oct 05, 2015 by Emma Eminoglu

Great course for basic knowledge on nutrition!

I needed this to change my country food habits

Oct 04, 2015 by Nargis Forgani

I needed these information to make a base to change my country bad food habits, i was studying medicine till fourth year then i stopped because of marriage and children, i personally gained 23 Kg after giving birth of my second kid and that's because of the bad food habits.
iv tried to lose weight after then and change my habits reading about too many kinds of diets and counting carbs and calories trying many fitness workouts and i recommended Tae Bo for my perfect body dream.

being a mother and trying to get as much knowledge as i can this was a big challenge to me .
i have created and tried too much recipes as i recommended Atkins diet to follow for life.
now as i stepped towards my goal which is to be a certified nutritionist and fitness instructor i feel so motivated after taking this course and hope i can continue my journey to help people in Libya to change their lives as i did.

thank you so much


Oct 04, 2015 by Chloe Airey

Great free starter course. Showed me how little i new about nutrition and how i am going to progress into a career of doing it, so i am able to help people on there journeys and give them advice. Jamie's video was very inspiring made me realize how much needs to be done in the country to help prevent obesity and how uneducated people are. My personal aspirations are to live a healthy longer life with these key skills that i have learnt, and my professional aspirations is to help as many people as i can by starting up a business to advise people on nutrition and weight management. I would defiantly recommend this to a friend so everyone can realize what a problem we are in.

An insight into nutrition

Oct 03, 2015 by Melissa Stockton

Calculating the percentage of each macronutrient is something that is probably the most useful part of the content as this can help me to manage my calorie intake to ensure a balanced diet, but also to help explain to others the importance of understanding exactly what they are consuming and not just looking at the 'light' options as they are not always the best option. The section of superfoods is what interested me the most and is something I will explore further, I already have an understanding of some of those superfoods so it was good to concrete my knowledge so I can be more confident when talking to others about their benefits and why they are not just a waste of money and just marketing. I also learned of new superfoods, which is always a benefit and something to explore further! I love learning how these foods can benefit those with illness and disease but also how protein sources are not just meat meat meat and powder as most naive people assume! The extra links provided are an amazing addition and I cannot wait to read through them all to expand my knowledge and share this newfound knowledge with others who would not take the time to explore this exciting, and essential field of knowledge.

I enjoyed the content and weight gain questionnare

Oct 01, 2015 by Sandhya

Hi, I was very interested in this course because of insight u provided in the content.
I learned many things that I never come across.
Thank you for your support


Sep 28, 2015 by Lisa Rowlands

A thoroughly enjoyable mini introduction to nutrition.

I found the personal weight gain assessment really useful, I thought I ate healthily and this has made me reassess my snacks overall, the thing I learnt most from was the carb/fat percentage calculators, very insightful.

I'm hoping to continue to further my education in nutrition and eating well with more training.

Informative and factual

Sep 28, 2015 by Crystal Wilson

Wonderful online starter nutrition course......I don't often levitate towards online learning as there is a high probability that I would loose interest due to lack of energy but I enjoyed this short course immensely, what I enjoyed the most was that it was easy to read and at your own pace. I like that there are many more articles and insightful facts outside the short course to look further into.

My number one discovery was learning how to calculate % of calories in packaged food.

I enjoyed already forwadring on insightful articles and work sheets to my friends and family

Looking forward to making more healthy decisions and actions towards my "Healthy Lifestyle Plan"


Sep 27, 2015 by Fate Wilson

Want to learn nutrition and teach others! This course made me realize I need to learn a lot more to become an effective teacher of nutrition!

Great informations!

Sep 27, 2015 by Jemmah

This free course covers a lot of great points and gives a lot of information that I previously did not know. This course will make me look at food labels much more carefully! I think everyone should be able to calculate the % of calories they are having from different foods.

Nutrition Starter Course

Sep 25, 2015 by Danny Kubis

What can I say ... this course should be something that is given to everybody in order for them to get at the very least the basics about nutrition.

I think everyone should be able to calculate the % of calorie they intake from food and know from what sources it comes from.

Superfoods is a must have list to help all make healthier choices.

I would like to thank the academy for giving me a well presented short and precise refresher course on what all should know.


Intriguing and Inspiring

Sep 23, 2015 by Emma Kirk-Odunubi

Course was so informative and helped to me realise my passion for taking part in a healthy lifestyle. I have always been super active ever since a young age but nutrition had always been my downfall. In the last 2 years i have been really watching how i eat. The courses added information about superfoods was insightful and it is information i will pass onto my fitness friends. I'd love to become a nutritionalist and personal trainer to help others overcome the pandemic that is the obesity crisis-especially in the youth of today. GREAT STARTER COURSE to wet the appetite for more!

Balanced Approach to Nutrition and Wellness

Sep 23, 2015 by Terri Hannah

I have become very interested in nutrition trends since my grandaughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have struggled for most of my life with what I thought was allergies and is probably a life of poor eating habits combined with possible (but undiagnosed) gut dysbiosis. It's reassuring to find information sources that aren't promoting some weird and unnatural diet but providing the necesssary background information to make sound choices.

An inspiring journey ahead

Sep 23, 2015 by Samuel Perez de Azaola

A great introductory course with the "Starter Nutrition Course", easy read and well explained and illustrated: Who knew Bee Pollen was such a complete food?!. A personal favorite are the calculating sheets and exercises to really understand and visualise nutritional value of ingredients. Currently going through the "Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Adviser" training, also provided by the Health Sciences Academy, giving a much deeper insight into the world of sports nutrition. It is a great transition in knowledge levels and an enjoyable challenge.

For someone like myself that has absolutely no professional knowledge in terms of health & nutrition this online introduction really gave me some informative knowledge. I'd like to think that I could cover the basics however my life goals are to improve my own health and fitness in order to promote this to others to encourage them to do the same. In order to do this I'd love to develop myself further in order to be confident in guiding others in the right direction. Hopefully this is something that the courses you will are offering will be able to help.

Sep 21, 2015 by Omi Laufer

I discover so many new and intersting things about food and education. I would love to keep learning more every day about nutrition and health, so I have enought knowledge to help others around me. With all I learned in this course, and specially with Jamie's video I though of offering my old school some healthy diets advice to change the way kids eat at school.

Excellent mini course

Sep 21, 2015 by Paula

Great course - really opened my eyes regarding my attitude towards food and nutrition. well worth doing.

Off to a good start!

Sep 20, 2015 by Sophie Russell

I'm a newly converted vegan, with a desperate thirst to learn more about nutrition and how to eat well balanced meals that still give me all of the nutrients I need to become and remain a healthy individual. I've become very passionate about nutrition as a whole and I'm trying to inspire and help others to adjust their eating habits, for so many people don't realise that their health is so heavily influenced by what they choose to fuel their bodies with. I am now a firm believer that we are what we eat.

This starter course confirmed that this is what I want to do for a career. It was a really easy to use format and I like its interactive aspects.
The Jamie Oliver video was very inspirational and I have to admit, I much prefer his 'activist' side to his chef one c:

Great course for anyone considering taking a course or career change into this field.

Super Starter!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading through the modules and reports that were presented in the starter course. I particularly benefited from the focus on Superfoods as I am a fan and want to learn more. I am interested in further study and found the learning platform easy to navigate and all information conveyed in a clear and concise way.
Thank you to the Health Sciences Academy!

I was expecting a 'food pyramid' course but i was plesently surprised that the content was more modern & accepting of the nutritional value of food. Thank you I'm excited to start my education journey with you.
