Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy A. Johnson, R.N., C., M.S.N., W.H.N.P.(Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center)
Description: This book is designed to apply basic scientific evidence to practical applications and treatment of pathologies stressing the nutritional component. The graphs, charts and algorithms are colorful and easy to follow. The MyPyramid offers an easy to use general guide to the proportions of different food groups that should be consumed. This chart reflects the newest guidelines published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) replacing the 2001 third edition of this book.
Purpose: According to the authors, the purpose of this nutrition and diet therapy book with evidence-based applications is to provide knowledge of the fundamentals of nutrition related to promotion and maintenance of optimal health. This worthy objective meets an educational need in a society where 66 percent of people in the United States are classified by the CDC as overweight or obese, creating a major health problem.
Audience: The authors intend this book for nursing students, dietetic assistants, diet technicians, and others. Carroll Lutz is Nursing Associate Professor Emerita; Karen Przytulski is a practicing clinical dietitian and a registered dietitian.
Features: This book covers clinical information useful to understanding nutrition. The applications provide relationships between nutrition and health. The strategies identify techniques necessary for individualized care to maintain culturally competent nutritional needs for major health problems. The most impressive area identifies the medical psychosocial problems associated with too little or too much body fat. The innovative method used to display the charts promotes their usefulness. The unique appendixes demonstrate references for dietary analyses and the Web links complement the book.
Assessment: The book promotes practical application of information to improve healthy outcomes for clients. It balances an explanation of the science of nutrition with an introduction to clinical responsibilities for a healthcare provider. The references to Web sites improve the quality over other books. This updated edition is necessary to present the current research knowledge developed for nutritional requirements in preventing major health problems.
