Overview

Published in cooperation with the American Dietetic Association, this exciting new text is current, accurate, and offers balanced coverage of behavioral change and the science of nutrition. It is exceptionally student friendly, having been written for and about students. Nutrition is unique in its behavioral approach--challenging students to actively participate, not just memorize the material--closing the distance between student and text by drawing the student into each chapter with familiar experiences and choices and illuminating difficult concepts with arresting analogies and lucid and precise writing. Its approach to the science of nutrition is also innovative, presenting chemistry in an engaging, non-intimidating way, and increasing students' understanding of each nutrient molecule's structure, shape, and reactivity.
