About

Overview

Nutrition, Exercise, and Behavior: An Integrated Approach to Weight Management is designed for students and professionals in a variety of disciplines who need to understand the basic principles of weight management. It incorporates a multifaceted, public health approach to issues of weight management—examining not only individual factors, but societal, family, and environmental factors contributing to eating disorders and overweight/obesity. The text includes detailed coverage of assessment techniques, behavioral and non-behavioral treatment approaches, and prevention strategies.

Features and Benefits

  • The text applies concepts from a variety of areas, including nutrition and exercise physiology, to present a comprehensive view of the issues involved in overall weight management.
  • Each chapter concludes with a Highlight that explores topics related to the chapter material, such as “The Impact of Low-Fat Foods and Fat Substitutes on Eating Behaviors” in Chapter 4 and “The Value of Physical Activity Through the Life Span” in Chapter 8.
  • Personal Self Study features throughout the chapters, such as “Calculate Your BMI” in Chapter 1 and “Reflect on Your Own Biological Makeup” in Chapter 7, encourage students to apply the concepts presented to analyze their own lifestyles, behaviors, and situations. Answers to some of the exercises are provided at the ends of the chapters.

What's New

  • New! A Case Study is integrated in each chapter with multiple parts and discussion questions which promote active learning and application of material to real-life scenarios.
  • Chapter reorganization moved Chapter 3: Energy Metabolism and Chapter 4: Regulation of Eating Behavior and Body Weight to the beginning of the text in order to provide readers an earlier introduction to the concepts of energy transformation in the body, the components of energy expenditure, and the roles of body systems and genetics in determining how and where we store fat.
  • Chapter 5: The Energy Nutrients and Weight Management contains a new section on dietary approaches to weight management.
  • New! A sixth section was added to include two new chapters. Chapter 11: Eating Disorders covers identification, prevention, and treatment of eating disorders. Chapter 12: Childhood Obesity was completely rewritten due to the rising rates of childhood obesity. It focuses exclusively on primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of childhood obesity.
