Health Hacks An EvidenceBacked Guide to Optimal Living


No experience or prior knowledge needed! Everyone can comprehend the concepts presented in this course.


We’re bombarded with information about health every day: “Eat this food and you’ll live longer! Do this type of exercise and you’ll lose weight in a week! Vegetarian diets are bad for you!” The bad news is that a lot of information surrounding health and nutrition is made up of myths and falsehoods. I’m a scientist with a background in nutrition, so I created this course to give you the basics and science-backed information that will empower you to distinguish between myths and facts, while clarifying a lot of hot topics in human health and providing you with key insights into lifestyle factors that will help or prevent you from being at your optimal health. This course includes lessons on basic nutrition, the healthiest (and unhealthiest) types of diets, how you can prevent diseases like cancer and diabetes, and why and how to engage in regular physical activity. Importantly, you’ll also learn about the truths behind recent ‘hot’ topics that you may be aware of, like probiotics, plant-based diets, whether gluten-free diets are for everyone, and why low-carbohydrate diets are dangerous. This course is suitable for everyone, so you don’t need to have any background in nutrition or science as I will cover all the basics.
