Already a subscriber? Log-in
Significantly deepen your understanding of nutrition science and become truly confident in your knowledge.
No more forgetting details you heard on past episodes.
No more missing key insights.
No more half-understanding of ideas.
The goal of our Premium subscription is to allow you to:
- Much more deeply understand each episode topic
- Retain more of what you hear
- Effectively recall details in your own future conversations or content creation
- Easily and efficiently revise material or find specific points
Is this for you?
You already spend hours listening to nutrition podcasts and reading up on topics.
What if you now had a resource that helps you get much more out of your time and effort?
As you’re a regular Sigma Nutrition listener, that means a few things…
- You find nutrition fascinating and important.
- You get a buzz from the feeling of understanding a topic better.
- You want to learn from true experts doing nutrition research or working in nutrition practice.
But, like us, you’re allergic to the unethical, misleading, sensationalist information that floods the internet.
You want scientific discussions that are not only fascinating but are also accurate, objective and truly evidence-based.
And you know that podcasts are one of the best ways to access such discussions and keep up with the latest research and insights from the greatest minds in nutrition & health science.
But there can be a few challenges in using podcasts for educational purposes…
- Have you ever listened to a podcast episode and found it absolutely fascinating, but then a few days later you find yourself unable to remember all the details that you’d like to?
- Or maybe you remember feeling that you wish you could quickly revise over material, without having to re-listen to the whole episode?
- Has there been times when you’ve felt you only vaguely understand a concept or term mentioned in an episode?
- You know, those times when you get the feeling you’re just missing some background information.
- Or perhaps you really enjoyed a detailed discussion, but are left wondering “what are the key takeaway points?” or “what does this mean for my dietary choices or advice to others?”
Sigma Nutrition Premium solves all of these challenges for you!
How to deeply understand nutrition topics
In order to feel confident you have a “deep” understanding of a topic (and be able to retain that), you need to:
- be able to revise the material in an efficient manner
- be able to quickly refresh your memory of important details
- be able to know what the key ideas from each discussion are
- get access to extra information that makes the content make more sense
- actually understand the terms and concepts that are being discussed
And if you want to really study and learn from the content you consume, you’re probably leaving a lot of knowledge on the table if you only passively listen.
That’s why we’ve created Sigma Nutrition Premium.
Through a number of awesome resources, you can get far more from every podcast episode you listen to…
What resources do I get? (Subscriber Features)
As a Premium subscriber you get exclusive access to:
Detailed Study Notes
What’s the best way to take your learning to the next level? By treating your podcast listening like true study.
But what about if you didn’t have to create study notes yourself?
Imagine having a detailed set of notes crafted for you…
Key terms explained, background context laid out, concise descriptions of, and all the details of an episode laid out clearly in text format.
Well, now you don’t have to imagine, we provide you with high-quality study notes, made by Danny and the Sigma team. Please note, the detailed study notes start from episode 428 onwards.
‘Key Ideas’ Segments
One of the most effective ways of consolidating learning is to have a clear revision of the main ideas after the material has been discussed.
So it’d be great to have this for every podcast episode, right?
Or maybe you’ve always wondered what Danny sees as the key points from an episode after he’s done an interview?
Well now, at the end of each podcast episode, Premium subscribers will hear Danny give his 2-3 key ideas from that discussion.
You’ll also get these laid out in text format, so that you can revise over them and or use them in your future content creation or professional work.
Full transcripts will be available only to Premium subscribers.
When logged-in with a Premium account, you’ll see the transcript right on the show notes page for that episode.
You’ll have the option to read it directly on the website, download it as a PDF file, or print it off if you prefer a physical copy.
This is a fantastic resource if you want to revise the material, if English isn’t your first language, or you want to copy a particular quote from the episode to reference in any content you are creating.
Discounts on Sigma Live Events
Premium subscribers will get early access to tickets for our live events and will receive a special discounted ticket price.
Our next live event takes place in Dublin, Ireland on May 28th.
Exclusive Premium-only Episodes
Premium subscribers will get exclusive, full-length bonus episodes directly in their feed every month.
This includes full ‘Quack Asylum’ episodes, where we’ll dive deep into one specific claim or topic that has become popular but is actually quackery.
You’ll also get ‘Nutrition Science Explained’ episodes, where a specific concept or term that comes up in nutrition science conversations is explained in more detail, so that from now on you’ll understand everything you hear in main podcast episodes, while also enhancing your understanding of nutrition research.
