The best thing about this book is that after reading it you donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have to look further as this comprehensive book from the American Dietetic Association explains everything you need to know about eating for health.
It had got the latest information on food and nutrition from leading professionals Roberta Duyff and experts from the American Dietetic Association. They have used the latest nutrition research to provide the most current and reliable answers to all your food and nutrition questions.
Through simple language and well-structured organization of the chapters, Duyff delivers a vast load of information mostly based on the Food Guide Pyramid, a guide used to quantitatively approximate the proportions of food consumed by categories. The author covers the basics of food components to give a scientific/clinical basis for the nutrition guidelines suggested for good heath.
