if I could give 6 stars to this book I would!This is the IT Nutrition book, this isn't something you read in one go, it's a keeper to put on your life shelf and go back to several times. This book talks about nutrition from every corner, it surrounds it and envelops it in a magnificent way. The illustrations displayed, the whole layout of the book is amazing apart from the information which is exceedingly mind blowing for it deals with everything related to nutrition, you'll get a brain freeze f [...]

Probably the most useful textbook I ever bought in college. I still have my old copy and refer to it frequently as a mom. Excellent nutritional guidelines for children and athletes, growth & weight charts, and amazingly approachable definitions of all the various vitamins and minerals.

This was well-organized, written, and illustrated. I found it to be a great resource for learning class material, much better than the lectures. It gave good explanations of bodily processes and also provided helpful summaries for reference. It was mostly free of woo but as others noted was written to the USDA's guidelines. It also contained information about complementing proteins, which is not universally accepted. Overall, it was OK, so settle in with your USDA-mandated 3 cups of low-fat milk [...]

As textbooks go, this is a good one. The information is clearly presented and logically organized. This is the 14th edition of the book, so typos and errors are pretty much nonexistent. The information felt current even though the title has been the standard in nutrition for decades. A very good, introductory nutrition text. The content is fairly basic and probably easily found online in other formats, but I think having everything in one text and easily accessible is still worthwhile. My only m [...]

Read for a nutrition class. Doesn't seem up to date and the authors show their biases. They are particularly dismissive of and ready to blame "the consumer" for shortcomings. The Standard American Diet doesn't fail us, we fail the diet! (well, okay, they're not quite that obvious about their disdain but it does come across.) They are also exceedingly fond of the grain and dairy industries--I sometimes wondered if lobbyists from those industries paid the authors' salaries. Still, the basics seem [...]

This is a very informative text that includes several useful charts. I used this for a distance-learning college course and found that, even without face-to-face interaction with an instructor, I got my money's worth from the class based on the quality of this book. Of course, it's still a textbook, mind, so don't expect a riveting read. It's instructive, well-illustrated, organized all things a textbook should be.

I didn't really care for this book at all. I had to read it for a college nutrition class. There has to be better books out there. It was written to please the government. The descriptions of how the body absorbs and distributes the vitamins and minerals through the food that we eat was great. That's the only positive thing I have to say about it.

Still reading it for my Introduction to Nutrition class. It's not a bad book, full of a lot of information! My only probalem was how they presented cellular metabolism, I found that to be somewhat confusing. It'd be better if it used the names of the enzymes and intermediate step names as oppose to random carbon circles.

The nutritional information presented in the book is of high quality and well referenced. I had some difficulty with the writing flow but regardless found the read to be a valuable contribution to my education.

Great book if you are taking a nutrition class or require a reference guide. Balanced information presented in an easy to read style with numerous real world examples.

Texbook but very informative. It took me months to read. Great resourse book.

I really like this book. It helped me a lot when it came to nutrition. I especially like my teacher, who was actually very knowlegable---Dr

Well written, but mostly tows the government nutritional guidelines, which are very much a product of heavy lobbying by the different agricultural lobbies rather than based on nutritional sciences.

Read this along with me husband for his nutrition class. It's very informative. Very easy to understand. The pictures and graphs are extremely helpful.

Great book for a beginning nutrition class. It was easy to follow and helps to guide you to a better diet.

If you have an interest in basic nutrition to diseases affected by nutrition, look on your local craigs list for this book. You should be able to pick up a used copy of this edition for $40-50.

Read this for an intro to nutrition class I took. One of two textbooks I've ever read cover-to-cover.

Decent enough overview, and quite good digestion and metabolism chapters, but is too dismissive of complementary medicines or vegan diets.

Not a bad textbook. Practical, informative, and immediately applicable.

Great nutrition text with an Australian flavour. The online companion website is also very helpful and the layout of the book is perfect.

While this was required reading and dense at times, I learned TONS from this book.

Read this for School. Pretty thorough albeit somewhat mainstream biased.

There are many good basic nutrition texts to choose from but this is a very good one. Simple and easy to use.

This book is filled with fantastic literature on Nutritional health. Easy to understand. I loved reading every single chapter.

lurve dis book!!1 of d medicine book dat doesnt bored mehahahabut ofcoz lahave not finish reading it yet!!!bapak tebal!!
