Key Message: Nutrition for Lifecapitalizes on readers'natural interest in nutrition by demonstrating how nutrition relates to their health. A unique aspect of the book is its presentation of nutrients based on function, rather than chemical classification. The book offers a chapter on vitamins and one on minerals, but within these chapters micronutrients are organized based on their functions within the body (tissue guardians, antioxidants, energy generators, essential electrolytes, mineral power plants, blood fortifiers, bone builders), enabling students to think about micronutrients on a conceptual level. This discourages rote memorization and promotes true understanding of each micronutrients' importance. For readers who want understand the traditional chemical organization, each chapter lists a table and brief discussion of the vitamins or minerals grouped into the water-soluble and fat-soluble categories. Key Topics: Nutrition: Making It Work for You, The Human Body: Are We Really What We Eat?, Carbohydrates: Plant-Derived Energy Nutrients, Fat: An Essential Energy-Supplying Nutrient, Proteins: Crucial Components of All Body Tissues, Vitamins: Micronutrients with Macro Powers, Minerals: Building and Moving Our Bodies, Fluid Balance, Water, and Alcohol, Achieving and Maintaining a Healthful Body Weight, Nutrition and Physical Activity: Keys to Good Health, Nutrition Throughout the Life Cycle, Nutrition Issues: The Safety and Security of the World's Food Supply Market:Intended for those who are interested in learning the basics of nutrition.
