Overview

Books a la Carte are unbound, three-hole-punch versions of the textbook. This lower cost option is easy to transport and comes with same access code or media that would be packaged with the bound book.

Nutrition: An Applied Approach, Third Edition introduces non-majors to nutrition with an innovative, applied format that discourages rote memorization and promotes long-term understanding of the material. The authors build on students’ natural interest in nutrition by demonstrating in a clear, conversational style how key nutritional information relates to their personal health, and show how to debunk commonly held misconceptions.

The applied approach is reflected in the functional organization of the micronutrient chapters, focusing on the vitamins and minerals and their primary functions within the body. The applied content is focused on four key chapters–fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, and energy metabolism and blood health; areas of particular importance to instructors. Students can easily grasp this conceptual framework for understanding the role nutrients play in their bodies and overall health.

Along with a host of engaging new features—including 11 new In Depth mini-chapters that follow each main chapter; a selection of interactive nutrition animations covering a wide range of topics; and useful in-text features including self-assessments and Eating Right All Day meal suggestions organized by chapter topics—the Third Edition includes updated theory and research findings, developing trends, and tools to help students identify and challenge nutritional myths and misperceptions.

This package contains:

  • Books a la Carte for Nutrition: An Applied Approach, Third Edition

  • Access Code Card for MyDietAnalysis

  • 2010 Dietary Guidelines, DRIs, and MyPlate Update
