Joan Salge Blake writes in a very engaging style, you directly, using visual analogies in order to explain concepts, and captivating the reader with humor. Blake encourages you to relate the science of nutrition to their own dietary habits, enabling you to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality. Blake’s approach teaches you to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online.
The Third Edition features MasteringNutrition™, an online homework, assessment, and tutorial system that allows instructors to personalize the nutrition course like never before with next generation course management tools. You can master topics through interactive mini-lessons, quizzing, and immediate wrong-answer feedback.
