DIET ANALYSIS PLUS is the market-leading diet assessment program used by colleges and universities. Featuring a database with over 20,000 foods that can be personalized with recipes, DIET ANALYSIS PLUS enables students to track their diet, generate reports, complete assignments, and gain a better understanding of how nutrition relates to their personal health goals. Students create their own personal profiles based on height, weight, age, sex, and activity level, and then track the types and serving sizes of the foods they consume from one day to 365 days. Unique custom and 3-day reports are among the many that students can print and analyze. Highlights of the new Version 9.0 include an improved interface for easier navigation, new assignments, and a questionnaire that accurately assesses one's true activity level. Available as a standalone product or in a bundle with any Wadsworth text for a substantial cost savings (Online or Windows/Macintosh compatible CD-ROM), this is a must-have for all who are interested in analyzing their diets.

Dr. Michelle "Shelley" McGuire teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles, and specializes in the research of understanding of how breastfeeding and lactation influence both maternal and child health and well-being. Recent research has focused on investigating how maternal diet influences milk fat content and, thus, energy intake and fatty acid consumption of the breastfeeding child.

This experience coupled with her strong writing and research background has helped her create an exciting and refreshing text for the introductory nutrition course.
