    Improve your health and weight
    Great podcast that give tips to improve your eating habits. The podcasts are nice and short so the host gets right to the point.

    I’m going to pass
    The information is interesting. While I understand the need for revenue through advertisements, it is annoying that 1) they interrupt already brief podcasts and 2) of the several I listened to, it is odd that none of her advertisers were healthy food makers. I really don’t care that Monica bought a Burberry sweater through one of the advertisers! Not worth subscribing to at all.
  • Sweetpeaomine
    At least half of the podcast is advertising. No thanks! The information provided in the podcast is useful, but the benefit of tiny nuggets of knowledge imbedded in huge amounts of advertising is not worth my time.
  • jeanindc
    Its more than half ads

    Science based
    Most nutritional gurus just make stuff up. The scientific reality is that we really don’t know much about what’s good for you and what’s not even though 7 billion people are eating every day. Monica cuts through the latest science and debunks the myths. She takes the opposite approach of most overly confident, overly simplistic nutritionalists. Monica takes a nuanced view with a robust interpretation of the entire realm of science Many reviewer‘s have complained about excessive ads. I just fast forward through them. You get what you pay for and ads pay for it. My biggest complaint is that after 500 episodes, the topics often are rather obscure now. If you were a new listener, I’d recommend you go back and start from the beginning

    Well researched, balanced advice
    Excellent content that is well researched. Monica provides lots of practical advice on how to eat healthily while still living a balanced life. There are definitely too many adds, but I still enjoy listening because the quality of the content is so good.
  • Nikki.DP
    Way too many advertisements
    Way too many advertisements especially for such a small amount of podcast time. I also don’t support the dairy industry sponsor due to their detriment on the earth and inflammatory effects it has on the body. Doesn’t seem to fit with a nutritional podcast.

    It’s good
    I’m liking it so far especially because I have ADHD
  • Lidgame
    Half of the time is ADs
    I understand ads are needed for the great information to continue. But half of the podcast time is too much. Lost patient
  • Parx617
    Ruined by So Many Ads
    The content is solid and the delivery is interesting, but the number of ads makes this just about unlistenable.
  • Tela Lynn
    Less Promotion More Content
    Of a 10 minute podcast majority was promoting products 👎🏻
  • Bphil86
    Too Many Ads
    I like the content but she pushes too Many products
  • OrganicForLife
    Cutting Edge
    What you get from this podcast is not current cutting-edge science. That science is dramatically changing how people think about how our bodies work and what we can do to influence successful working of our body long pass star sell by date. You don’t find that information in this podcast. So if you have a health problem you are trying to deal with keep looking. What you need may be out there.
  • maggie4nc
    Waaaaay too many ads
    Content is really interesting but to be interrupted by ads all the time is annoying. Really ruins the whole podcast. Can’t listen anymore.
  • carleyh96
    Too many ads
    Interesting podcast and great info but the ads kind of ruin it for me. She stops in the middle of talking about something and before she answers the question she goes on about random products with promo codes.
  • W Tucker
    So Refreshing
    I love that the stereotypical answers are not accepted as true. You continue to hear the same answers and pretty soon you believe them. Supplements are a topic which not many people will tell you that you don't need. Thank goodness someone is not deluded and brain washed to thinking that we all need supplements to be healthy.
  • Laswagerty
    Interesting info
    Thank you for taking the time to inform me about nutritional facts. I’m confused when it comes down to nutritional science and you break nutrition down and share the most information tips I should know. Thanks.
  • abc123abby
    Great podcast but too many commercials now
    Great show too many ads now

    Short and sweet
    I really like the powerful advice the host offers in a short timespan. Most of the episodes have concepts I can use in daily life. Great education.
  • Crisamar
    I wish I could say it’s unbiased
    I’ve been listening to this podcast for more than 5 years. I like Monica’s voice and I get some information on nutrition. However, I wish it’s not too slanted one way or the other. She quotes research but only to a point that supports what I think she supports. Nonetheless, she’s entertaining because within episode to episode, it focuses on a single specific nutrient. Just don’t always count on it for overall healthy nutrition that actually favors decreasing disease and living longer. You’d have to come to that conclusion yourself by supplementing your research reading reliable sources online.

    Great Advice
    This is a great podcast for anyone trying to eat and live better. Monica does a great job of bringing research to us in plain english. Thanks for all you do.
    An incredibly rich resource for learning all about nutrition, health, foods, diet. SHE REALLY IS SMART. Monica tackles the science, fads, and trends, and then delivers info in a really relatable, clear way. I take her on all my long bike rides and I have learned a ton about obscure foods and healthy ways of eating.
  • Adam Jack
    Great information
    Great information, well researched & presented.

    No nonsense
    Thanks for providing a straight forward info session on nutrition! I am a Dietetics student and appreciate this so much!

    Factual Diet Info
    I love ‘The Nutrition Diva’ podcast for its research based content and ability to clarify food studies and diet trends. I’m a chef and always looking for solid nutritional insights to help me cook and eat more healthfully.

    Realistic advice
    Monica has a great voice for radio and great advice for everyday eaters! Not a "foodies" podcast or a podcast tailored to the "nutrition obsessed." She gives quick, easy to understand, practical advice. She doesn't waiver back and forth based on what's new and hot. You can go back and listen to the early episodes (10 years ago!) and it will be the same advice she's giving today. She doesn't plug one way of eating over another, except eating a variety of vegetables and reducing "junk." I always know I can count on her to give realistic advice on all the "nutrition" trends coming our way.
  • AnitraSmith
    One of my favorites
    Monica is engaging and succinct. She presents scientific research into diet and nutrition in a very approachable way. Even when I don’t have time to listen to long-form podcasts, I can always carve out 10 minutes to learn more about health and nutrition.
  • Running_Lisa
    Learned a lot
    QuickAndDirtyTips is helpful for any number of reasons, especially in making the infromation easily understandable!
  • Musikiscool
    Love the quick tips while on the go
    Love the quick tips. Monica takes big nutrition trends and turns them into easy listening
  • ukiddin
    sick and tired of her
    I have been listening to her for a number of years. At the beginning I was existed. By now, however, she has become like a nagging voice that give you information like a sigar rush, but leaves you with empty calories. Speaking of sugar.... She did a podcast on sugar and wow was she just annoying. A similar and much better podcast on sugar, was a Freakonomics one. To me, that was the biggest crack in my own wall of famdom towards the diva. In the end...she's like a coke like it at first, and then you leave full ...of gas. Good luck farting after listening to her podcast.

    Quick and easy
    I’ve been listening for about 1 yr. These podcasts have helped me formulate the verbiage to help my clients reach their nutritional/health goals. It’s one thing to have book knowledge but it’s another to be able to verbalize what you know... this podcast does both in a quick easy format!
  • Dark matter developer
    One of the best
    Great audio quality and excellent speaking skills. Bar far one of the most sane advice that people can take actions on.
  • Extremely Dissappointed 22
    Absolutley Ridiculous
    Gives advice for how to find grain fed beef from non-feedlot sources??? Why would any nutrition expert recommend grain fed beef over grass fed when the science clearly supports grass fed as a healthier option? Inflammatory disease promoted by high omega-6 content in grain-fed animals is plaguing public health. Not to mention how environmentally irresponsible raising mass amounts of corn to support the demand is. I'm not a vegan, I eat meat. I just don't appreciate someone claiming to be an expert spreading misinformation. I wonder what organization is influencing the content of this show?
  • cfflick67
    Great review of today's nutrition deluge
    With so much information out there and with much of it conflicting, this podcast is a life line for those who want to eat better but are drowning in a sea of propaganda!
  • Saphire146
    Good advice
    Yay for evidence based reasonable advice!
  • Tarrant69
    Great information in bite-sized pieces
    After years of podcasting, Monica still manages to keep her episodes under 10 minutes each, which is just the right amount for a quick hit of nutrition information. My favorite aspect of Monica's discussions is her fair, equitable, level-headed, unbiased assessment of the scientific literature. Also, her diction is amazing (I guess because of her training as a singer)!
  • Salamandy24
    Some good info
    I get some good info from these episodes, but take it with a grain of salt. She seems to rely on the old "tried and true" of what the FDA recommends. Doesn't seem like she stays up to date on modern nutrition recommendations. She's also a little pretentious, but I try to look past that.
  • Beck-a-moe
    Great podcast
    Her voice is soothing. She backs up her recommendations with science but explains it in a way that is easy to understand and keeps it interesting.
  • Dianedc2016
    Keep doing and informing as you do! I read so much about nutrition, etc but find you to be my "go-to" of sensibility! Thank you! I wait every week anxiously to hear from you and I listen to your past podcasts, too!
  • moreyla
    Quick and Packed with Good Advice
    I love this Podcast. Its Quick, Its informative, Its Practical and its from a Professional who know her stuff. I like Monica's style.
  • somewhatopinionated
    Very Informative!
    Great podcast! Great copy: well-organized, succinct information delivered in a very personable way. I've been a listener for a few years and am grateful for her insight! -D
  • bokbot
    8-min episode & 2 sponsored messages?!
    I understand the need for sponsors but let's be reasonable and space it out. Two sponsored messages in only 8 minutes is just too much. Finally, her voice is not genuine at all! Not worth listening to.
  • GoGetter12
    Informative, Short and Sweet!
    Great info! Keep up the great work!
  • Puzzle2001
    We consumers hear all kinds of things about foods, diets etc. It is interesting to hear what this person thinks.
  • kirkrips
    Too much Advertising & too little content
    The quick advice is worthwhile, but for a 7 to 8 minute podcast you receive about 3 minutes of content with a 1 minute or more advertisement at the beginning, with a 1 minute or more advertisement in the middle, then lots of references to previous shows and her website for more information and to ask you to leave reviews and ask questions, etc. It's more like listening to a 5 minute commercial with a 2 minute long show.
  • pandasalad3000
    no science, no facts!
    no science. a lot of fear mongering based on incorrect or blatantly wrong information. some suggestions (such as taking inordinately high amounts of vitamin c to remove "blood toxins") are detrimental to health. also, there is no such thing as "blood toxins," please go read some science about this. you have kidneys to remove your "toxins," in fact, anyone who talks about "toxins" should be avoided at all costs because they clearly have no interest in science. wish i could give this podcast 0 stars. this podcast is dangerous and spreads false information. one would do well not to take it seriously, or indeed not to listen at all.
  • Tarzanphan60
    Great information!
    I love the Nutrition Diva podcasts. Monica R provides well researched information and pros and cons on popular topics. Highly recommend this for anyone who wants good health - which should be everyone.
  • Redheads_mom
    My favorite podcast! I've learned so much from Nutrition Diva!
  • Organized Traveler
    Great podcast
    I have been looking for a good no nonsense, no agenda nutrition podcast for awhile andI finally found one. I like that you aren’t pushing a product or a specific agenda, but just have a variety of topics and advice with easy to initiate things to improve personal nutrition choices. Thank you.
