Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PERSONAL NUTRTION, 7th Edition, is written for an undergraduate applied introductory nutrition course found in departments of Nutrition, Family and Consumer Science, Health Science, and Physical Education. Students taking this course may receive a science credit or general education credit, or they may enroll in the course for personal interest. At twelve chapters, this is the shortest introductory text on the market that also covers a wide variety of nutrition topics. It begins by defining nutrition, examines macro- and micronutrients, and ends by discussing life-cycle and global food issues. The text is accessible and personal--designed to improve a student's understanding of food, nutrition, digestion, and health--and contains very little biochemistry.

Synopsis:

PERSONAL NUTRITION, Sixth Edition is the most concise introductory nutrition textbook on the market. Twelve chapters in length, it is designed for use in quarter or semesters schools where the introductory nutrition course is consumer focused. It takes an applied approach to the introductory nutrition course. It begins with a look at Nutrition science, followed by basics of diet planning, and then moves through the energy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It also includes a separate chapter on alcohol, as well as separate chapters on weight management, life cycle nutrition, and food safety and world hunger. Each chapter in this text relates nutrition science directly to the students so they can understand and apply the information to their own lives.

Synopsis:

PERSONAL NUTRITION, 7th Edition, helps you acquire the skills and knowledge you need to become a savvy evaluator of the nutrition issues and controversies you will encounter throughout your life. Presented in a vibrant design with clarifying figures, many photos, and cartoons, this popular, concise book is infused with the authors' friendly writing style and filled with enjoyable, practical features and activities. Authors Marie A. Boyle and Sara Long keep pace with the rapidly changing field of nutrition with timely coverage of the latest findings and trends, and they help you use what you learn to enhance your personal nutrition and health.
