About the book

 

Clarify tough topics and help students make connections between nutrition and real-world scenarios

  • Focus Figure Narrated Walkthroughs provide a video tour of each full-page Focus Figure. These figures explore targeted and integrated topic areas through visual information displays that are bold, clear, and detailed. In the narrated walkthroughs, author Joan Salge Blake breaks down each part of the Focus Figure and further explains them, just as she would in the classroom. Focus Figure Narrated Walkthroughs also have corresponding tutorials in Mastering™ Nutrition.
  • Inter-professional Nutrition in Practice case studies encourage critical thinking and emphasize the applicability of the content to students’ own lives and future careers. Some case studies draw upon Joan Salge Blake’s experience as a dietitian working with actual clients, while others have been created with a new focus for those interested in pursuing other allied health professions such as nursing, physical therapy, etc.
  • Coverage of important topics, including prediabetes, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, FODMAP diet, FITT and high intensity interval training, prebiotics and synbiotics, and more have been added. In addition, Chapter 8, which includes metabolism and energy metabolism pathways, has been significantly restructured for clarity.
  • Content has been updated throughout to be consistent with the new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines, data, research, and trends.

 

Improve students’ critical thinking

  • Numbered Learning Outcomes appear at the beginning of each chapter and are tied to a specific chapter section. The outcome is repeated at the start of each section to enhance student study.

  • Visual Chapter Summaries are structured to mirror the organization of the chapter content and are numbered to correspond with the chapter’s learning outcomes. They contain important art and photos from the main chapter text and serve as concise study and review tools.
