Summary

PERSONAL NUTRITION, Fifth Edition is the most concise introductory nutrition textbook on the market. Twelve chapters in length, it is designed for use in quarter or semester schools where the introductory nutrition course is consumer focused. The text is the leader in the non-major segment of the introductory nutrition market. PERSONAL NUTRITION, Fifth Edition takes a traditional 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 includes a new separate chapter on alcohol, and also includes 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.
