The MyPyramid Edition of Nutrition: An Applied Approach has been updated to integrate complete information on the new USDA MyPyramid food guidance system and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005. Nutrition: An Applied Approach present introductory nutrition information in a format that promotes long-term understanding of the material. Authors Janice Thompson and Melinda Manore demonstrate how nutrition relates to your health and your everyday life, while addressing - and debunking - common misconceptions you may have about nutrition. The applied nature of the book and the functional organization of the micronutrient chapters make learning easy. With so many vitamins and minerals, and differing toxicity and deficiency symptoms for each of them, it's easy to become overwhelmed. This text solves that problem by presenting the micronutrients in the context of their function, rather than by their classification. This approach helps you organize the information and appreciate the role of nutrients in your body and your health. Applied features, such as Nutri-Case case studies, Nutrition Label Activities, and more, complete your learning by showing you how to implement the nutrition knowledge you've gained.
