About

Overview

Nutrition is personal. Knowledge is power. PERSONAL NUTRITION helps students turn knowledge into the power to make changes and live smarter. Created to help students be smarter consumers, PERSONAL NUTRITION builds the scientific foundation of nutrition through an accessible narrative and application. The functional presentation of vitamins and minerals provides students with a meaningful context for understanding their importance in maintaining good health. By engaging students through practical examples and exercises, the content empowers them with the knowledge and tools to make smart decisions regarding their personal nutrition and health. Updated with 2010 Dietary Guidelines and new learning objectives, the Eighth Edition presents current information in a format that focuses students on the most important topics. PERSONAL NUTRITION motivates students to become informed consumers and to make changes in their everyday life — starting now.

Features and Benefits

  • Each chapter provides activities that incorporate Diet Analysis Plus, the market-leading diet analysis software, to help students directly relate nutritional concepts to their own lives.
  • A "Nutrition Scorecard" quiz in each chapter encourages students to compare their own behavior and knowledge with nutrition principles and guidelines for healthy eating. Topics include "Rate Your Fats and Health IQ," "Healthy Weight," and "Estimate Your Protein Intake
  • "Savvy Diner" offers food selection and preparation suggestions for healthy eating and reinforces the recommendations made in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Topics include buying healthy foods on a limited budget, incorporating whole grains into the diet, and maintaining a healthy weight goal when eating out.
  • "Eat Well, Be Well" sections motivate students to make good health and diet a priority, providing practical tips that they can apply immediately as well as throughout their lives. Topics include: "Never Say Diet," "An Eating Pattern for Longevity," and "Color Your Plate for Health."
  • "Nutrition in Action" sections highlight the latest issues and trends in the field, including "The Diet and Blood Pressure: The Salt Shaker and Beyond," "Diet Confusion: Weighing the Evidence," "Food Allergy," and "Organic Foods."
  • "Spotlight" features use a question-and-answer format to relate current issues and research to chapter topics and encourage critical thinking. These features usually address common concerns that people have about nutrition, such as benefits derived from soy foods, eating disorders, and pros and cons of using supplements.
