I learned a lot about diet and I am in the process of changing my habits, such as a healthy diet by cutting empty calories and adding more veggies, as well as exercise more because the heart needs to be active for it to be healthy.
This book was pretty intersting. I don't really have anything to compare it to subject wise. But I learned a lot from reading this book. It was so interesting that sometime I would read more than what was required for class!read more

There are a lot of definitions throughout the book and at the end of the book, there are also useful graphs and pictures. The explanation of things is good as well.read more

This book really helped me through my nutrition course. Whatever the instructor taught pretty much lined up with what was in the book. It was a great study guide accompanied by my instructor's notes!
The chapters on vitamins and minerals were especially interesting and informative.read more
It was a well written, easy to read, and kept my attention better than most textbooks.
The weight! It was very large and cumbersome. The print was also very small and the glossary didn't label a lot of crucial concepts I felt.read more
It had such extensive information on the chemistry of different foods and this was helpful when I was analyzing my diet!
To make this book better would be more examples. The chapter that covered pregnancy and nutrition was very interesting because it went into detail but didn't bore the reader.read more
The least helpful part of this book I would say was chapter 5. Lipids are a very important part of nutrition but it went so in depth even though I didn't need to know the information for Nutrition 200. The book was great but the professor could have chosen a different book. I could see this book being very helpful to anyone that is taking a difficult Nutrition course or just wants to know a lot more about nutrition.
