Overview

DIET THERAPY is a textbook for nursing or nutrition students who need to understand how to apply introductory nutrition concepts in a clinical environment. This text consists of the 14 diet therapy chapters from the successful Williams: NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, seventh edition, plus the addition of full color throughout. The physiologic/biochemical research basis for nutrition science and practice is carefully balanced with the behavior/psychosocial basis of nutritional patterns, health care, and health behaviors.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary M. Sullivan, MPH, RD, CNSD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: This is a textbook on diet therapy that is an offshoot of another text, Essentials of Nutrition and Diet Therapy. This is a first edition; however, its parent book is in its sixth edition, published in 1994.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a nutrition book that updates and expands the above-mentioned book and meets the changing needs of students and health care practitioners. These objectives are worthy because nutrition therapy is a rapidly changing field. However, there are many books available that fulfill these needs. For the most part, the author's objectives are met.
Audience: This book is targeted at dietetics and nutrition students. It is general and would be most appropriate on the undergraduate level. The author is a registered dietitian and nutrition educator and an authority on the subject.
Features: This attractive and colorful book is well organized and easy to read. The references are somewhat old, the majority appearing to be from 1990 and 1991. Tables supporting the written material appear in every chapter and serve to clarify the text. The book contains 24 appendixes, some of which seemed irrelevant to the text.
Assessment: There are many good features of this book, including the breadth of its subjects and its inclusion of current nutrition/medical topics such as AIDS. However, shortcomings include the generalization of many topics, which mitigate the book's usefulness in a clinical setting. Some diet therapy modalities discussed in the book are not consistent with current practice (e.g., gastrointestinal disease, burns). Although a first edition, this book is purportedly an updated version of its parent text. However, it is difficult to detect how it is updated and it does not appear to offer more than the main text. Because it is general, it would be most useful as an introductory dietetics text.
