Overview

PERSONAL NUTRTION, 7th Edition, is written for an undergraduate applied introductory nutrition course found in departments of Nutrition, Family and Consumer Science, Health Science, and Physical Education. Students taking this course may receive a science credit or general education credit, or they may enroll in the course for personal interest. At twelve chapters, this is the shortest introductory text on the market that also covers a wide variety of nutrition topics. It begins by defining nutrition, examines macro- and micronutrients, and ends by discussing life-cycle and global food issues. The text is accessible and personal—designed to improve a student's understanding of food, nutrition, digestion, and health—and contains very little biochemistry.
