PERSONAL NUTRITION, Sixth Edition is the most concise introductory nutrition textbook on the market. Twelve chapters in length, it is designed for use in quarter or semesters schools where the introductory nutrition course is consumer focused. It takes an applied approach to the introductory nutrition course. It begins with a look at Nutrition science, followed by basics of diet planning, and then moves through the energy nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It also includes a separate chapter on alcohol, as well as separate chapters on weight management, life cycle nutrition, and food safety and world hunger. Each chapter in this text relates nutrition science directly to the students so they can understand and apply the information to their own lives.
