UNDERSTANDING NUTRITION provides accurate, reliable information through its clear writing, dynamic visuals, and integrated study aids, all of which engage and teach students the basic concepts and applications of nutrition. This comprehensive text includes up-to-date coverage of the newest research and emerging issues in nutrition. The pedagogic ...show moreal features of the text, as well as the authors' approachable style, help to make complex topics easily understandable for students. From its stunningly restyled and refined art program to the market-leading resources that accompany this text, UNDERSTANDING NUTRITION connects with its readers and continues to set the standards for texts used in the course.

Benefits:

  • "Nutrition Calculations" (previously "Making It Click") include additional practice in important nutrition quantitative problems.
  • NEW! New! "Nutrition in Your Life" chapter openers introduce the chapter material, and then are revisited at the end of the chapter with several self-assessment questions. Each opening scenario focuses students on what they are going to learn. Closing questions then allow students to assess their knowledge and consider whether their personal choices are meeting the dietary goals introduced in the chapter.
  • NEW! "Highlights" at the end of each chapter address new research, ongoing research, and controversial issues related to the chapter material. New "Highlights" include "A World Tour of Pyramids, Pagodas, and Plates" (Ch. 2); "High-Fat Foods: Friend or Foe?" (Ch. 5); and "Phytochemicals and Functional Foods" (Ch. 13).

  • NEW! Chapter 7, "Metabolism: Transformations and Interactions," has been reviewed, revised, and re-energized. Details were added to enhance understanding, but care was taken to maintain the same chemistry-friendly approach, using a combination of familiar phrases and attractive art.
  • NEW! Diet Analysis Plus, available Online or on a Windows CD-ROM, can be packaged with this text for a substantial discount.
