Summary
A guide to eating strategically for weight loss shares dietary secrets that can help readers to make informed food choices, providing hundreds of substitutes for specific foods with high calories, fat, and sodium.
Provides readers with a preparatory look at the exciting field of sport and exercise nutrition, including its foundational concepts and the diverse career options available. With this one-stop resource, students thinking of entering the field, athletes, and those working with athletes will gain a basic understanding of how nutrition affects sport performance and exercise training.
This two-part program aims to educate students about the nutrients required for optimal growth and development across the lifespan. It will explore patterns of physical development during prenatal development through to late adulthood and the nutrients required to support both growth and maintenance of the human body. Program one will examine the nutrient needs in pregnancy, infancy and childhood.
During adulthood, with the exception of when a female is pregnant, physical growth stops and our bodies enter a maintenance stage that continues until our last days. This program explores the complex range of nutrients required during our adolescence/youth and adulthood.
Authored by the National Agricultural Library, this site provides a directory of nutrition resources.
Visitors may look up the nutrient content of a particular food with the USDA's online search program.
