If you're interested in nutrition and like listening to lectures on audio or video, I recommend The Teaching Company's* Nutrition Made Clear. (For those of you unfamiliar with the company: before you have a heart attack at the price, note that all courses go on highly-discounted sale at least once a year. I got my copy of the download for about a quarter of the price.) I'm about a third of the way through, and the professor has a great voice, is interesting, and makes the material easy to follow. At the moment, you can watch one of her lectures for free, #4, the one on calories.

I also recommend Robert Sapolsky's Stress and Your Body on the basis of the first two lectures (I'm finishing Nutrition before I finish this one) and the books of his I've read. He's funny and dynamic. I also note that, at the moment, the course is on sale for $34.95.

And as long as I'm recommending courses I've recently listened to, if you listen to the Skeptics' Guide to the Universe you may already know that Steven Novella also has a course out with them. We bought it (on sale, natch!) and I've listened to it and recommend it. Medical Myths, Lies, and Half-Truths: What We Think We Know May Be Hurting Us

* Now The Great Courses, I think.
