Visualizing Nutrition helps students understand the science behind nutrition, the sociocultural impact of food and diet, and the many ways dietary choices affect metabolism, health, and well-being. Providing an immersive and engaging visual approach to nutrition science, this accessible textbook teaches students how to think critically about what to eat — empowering them to be informed consumers when making nutrition decisions. Rooted in contemporary nutritional research, the text highlights the importance of diet in preventing disease and improving general health and wellness. The fifth edition has been fully revised throughout, containing the most current information available on the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.   

Readable, easy-to-understand chapters explore digestion, carbohydrates, proteins and amino acids, vitamins and minerals, energy balance, weight management, physical activity, nutrition during pregnancy, and other important nutrition topics. The book features a comprehensive range of pedagogical tools and multimedia resources designed to increase comprehension, strengthen critical thinking skills, and demonstrate the relevance of nutrition in students’ personal lives.
