About

Overview

NUTRITION, EXERCISE, AND BEHAVIOR: AN INTEGRATED APPROACH TO WEIGHT MANAGEMENT, 3rd edition, 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 examines the role of issues such as nutrition, exercise physiology, the environment, and human behavior in its holistic approach to overall weight management.
  • Each chapter includes application boxes with exercises, case studies, or assignments that allow students to apply key concepts from the chapter to real-life situations. Examples include a "Physical Activity Assessment" in Chapter 6 and "Diet Analysis" in Chapter 9.
