Healthy nutrition has become a subject of growing concern and reappraisal. According to recent research, one-third of the adult U.S. population is obese. At the same time, one-third of American men, and one-half of American women are trying to diet. Currently, the typical household eats one meal out of five outside of the home (four out of seven of these in fast food restaurants). The Diet and Nutrition Sourcebook provides the layperson with the latest research and recommendations regarding proper dietary practices.
