Really enjoy this book
By Motherof2 on Apr 05, 2014
I am currently taking a nutrition course and I love this book. It is like the foundation for understanding the concepts of the foods we eat everyday. The chapters are short for the most part, but it contains very good information. I also like the chemist corner and how & why sections. Another aspect of this book is the profiles for the different professionals and wished the author would have shown more.The only other downside is the price, wish it was a cheaper option to actually purchase this book instead of just renting it.

After I bought this book, I realized there was a cheaper version which is an e-book for $60 full print and you could read the book on your computer, tablet, phone, and print the pages. Next time! firstname.lastname@example.org
