Nutrition For Dummies
John Wiley & Sons, Nov 6, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 352 pages
Nutrition For Dummies is for anyone who cares about what they eat, and wants to know about the facts, not the fads.
Finding easy to understand and sensible advice on what you should be eating is easier said than done – advice seems to constantly change and fad diets only seem to help celebrities pile on the pounds in their bank account, rather than making any of us healthier! In this book, Nigel Denby and Sue Baic, two experienced and registered dieticians, dispel all myths and provide you with the information you need to eat for a healthy life. They explain every aspect of the subject from the basics about essential nutrients to the relationship between allergies and food and give you the knowledge and confidence to start making wise food choices.
Inside you’ll find information on:
The Basic Facts about Nutrition
Digestion: The 24-Hour Food Factory
Calories: The Energisers
What You Get from Food
The Lowdown on Fat and Cholesterol
Carbohydrates: A Complex Story
Alcohol: Another Form of Grape and Grain

A very easy way to understand supplements, nutrition and the food we eat. It has a great chart of the nutritive and caloric values of lots of foods in it. I like the chart because it is up to date on some of the fruits and vegetables which are now available to us in our stores. Read full review
