This introductory nutrition text teaches students the basic principles of nutrition science, as well as how to use those principles to understand nutrition information and make wise food choices. Throughout, the authors emphasize that diets are comprised the individual food choices we make on a daily basis - and that one choice doesn't make or break a diet. This edition incorporates health and disease, metabolism, cultural diversity, and life cycle topics into every chapter. New and expanded coverage of the Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs), nutrition and gene expression, weight management, dietary supplements, and environmental issues is also included.
