I will graduate from a Dietetics program in April this year and I have loved having this book as a quick reference. It has a lot of good information and it is written in a way that is much easier to understand than a lot of nutrition text books. This is a book I love to look at if I want a brief overview of a concept before reading more in depth. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in nutrition.
to start with am a nutrition student and this is by far the best BASIC nutrition book that i ever read, this book is for people who want to start with nutrition from zero as it includes the general and most (want-to-know) information about nutrition like (what is carbohydrate? protein, fat,potassium...how they work in your body, their food sources and much more )simply it includes information that will make everything easier later on so if you are like me asking for basic nutrition than go for it you will never regret it..
This information- rich work is based on U.S. guidelines for healthy- eating. It presents the conventional health wisdom which will already be known by health- interested readers. But it does this in such great detail that most readers will learn from the work, and have ways of improving their health.A valuable reference work.
This is like an encyclopedia--set up to check your topic out from either the table of contents or the index. Well researched.Only part I dislike is the small print and flimsy nature of the book itself.
When a friend wanted to learn more about good nutrition, I turned to the experts at the American Dietetic Association. The book is written by nutrition professionals for the public. Every home should have one...
Great! Favorite general nutrition book on the market! As a dietitian, I recommend this book to consumers all the time. Easy to understand and scientifically sound.
loved the book. i got it because i just started retirement this year. i drove truck for over 40 years and needed a changeof life.i read alot of smart books and always liked to eat well.this book helped me eat my way to a better life. i could not find any thing wrong,it was a used book, but i could not see any difference. for anyone who is looking for a better life get this book.up date on the book i got a few months ago, I lost 20 lbs.and feel better inside andout.when you get this book do what it says to do.if not,then there only words give it a try and dont give up peace, sonny
It's a amazing book. It manages to cover so many different nutrition questions/topics in an easy-to-read format. And some how they make it fun and interesting too! Written by true nutrition experts. Nutrition information I can trust.
