9780314810915: Nutrition: Concepts & Controversies

NUTRITION: CONCEPTS AND CONTROVERIES, MYPYRAMID UPDATE TENTH EDITION focuses on nutrition principles and their application while offering outstanding coverage of the biological foundations of nutrition without assuming previous knowledge of them. With its new design, contemporary coverage, and engaging writing style, it remains the leading Nutrition text for the non-majors or mixed majors/non-majors introductory course. Drawing readers into the study of nutrition, the authors have created a number of learning tools that are both appealing and accessible. From the chapter content and new "Do You Ever..." sections to the "Food Feature" boxes and end-of-chapter "Controversies," students find the information they need to better understand important nutrition concepts and to make informed and responsible decisions about their own nutrition. Additionally, the "Do It" activities, now available online, on the student CD-ROM, and in a free booklet that can be packaged with the text, students can practice applying their nutrition knowledge. There is also the accompanying NUTRITION CONNECTIONS CD-ROM, a unique resource that includes animations, chapter quizzes, a comprehensive glossary, "Do It!" activities, and Web links. For instructors, we offer a newly redesigned Multimedia Manager that includes PowerPoint slides, animations, videos, and test questions. We also offer a new JoinIn™ on TurningPoint, a classroom resource to assess students' knowledge, take attendance, and more. So, whether looking for a text full of up-to-date information, a text that students enjoy reading, a text that offers a robust supplements package, or a text that can engage students and get them excited about studying, NUTRITION CONCEPTS AND CONTROVERSIES is the text for you!

Sizer received her B.S. and M.S. in nutrition from Florida State University.

Review:

"The major topics are addressed nicely. I like the authors' easy and professional writing style. Sizer and Whitney know their subject material coming and going."

"I like the level at which the text is written. It works very well for the undergraduate nutrition classes that I teach. I like how easy it is to find information, text headings, tables and figures all help. Difficult concepts are explained through figures or pictures."

"This format helps the reader in not only learning about nutrition facts, but to also appreciate and understand several controversies surrounding the field of nutrition."

"The text is clearly written and provides thorough explanations of concepts and terms. The controversy sections are particularly insightful, include current research information, and provide a balanced and thorough review of topics, such as phytochemicals and functional foods."
