More About This Book

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 for Life capitalizes on students’ natural interest in nutrition by demonstrating how it relates directly to their health and daily lives. This book is unique among introductory texts in its presentation of nutrients based on function, rather than chemical classification. Within the vitamins and minerals chapters, micronutrients are organized by their various functions within the body (such as tissue guardians, antioxidants, energy generators, essential electrolytes, mineral power plants, blood fortifiers, bone builders), enabling students to think about them conceptually while also understanding their basic roles in the body. This discourages rote memorization and promotes fuller and more accessible understanding of each micronutrients’ importance. For those instructors who still want their students to understand the traditional chemical organization, the micronutrient chapters include detailed tables and overviews of water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins, and the trace and major minerals.

Beyond the functional approach, Nutrition for Life includes new applied features such as Eating Right All Day, Foods You Don’t Know You Love Yet, and end-of-chapter Cooking videos, which gives students all they need to know to put good nutrition information into action. The Third Edition also includes a Nutri-Case in each chapter plus the new MyPlate food patterns and recommendations. The art and photos have also been updated, along with a fresh interior design.
