Nutrition: Concepts and Controversies is good reference for nutrition majors and an excellent read even for those who simply want information on proper eating habits. The brainchild of two reputable authors, Frances Sizer and Ellie Whitney, this easy-to-read reference successfully dismisses universal misconceptions and false beliefs about nutrition. Major concepts are presented in a clear and concise manner, from carbohydrates to lipids, and even elementary subjects like vitamins and minerals. Nutrition: Concepts and Controversies (ISBN 9780538734943) also talks about nutrition in different levels throughout man's lifetime, from childhood up until the body reaches old age. The authors included several chapters concerning body weight, balance of energy in the body, and physical fitness and well-being. They likewise integrated sections on consumerism, nutrition research controversies, and fitness in each chapter. Sizer is a charter FADA (fellow of the American Dietetic Association, and a founding member/VP of the Florida-based Nutrition and Health Associates, which is one of the most reliable resources for information about everything that has to do about nutrition. She has also authored several other publications like The Fitness Triad: Motivation, Training and Nutrition, and Nutrition Clinics. Whitney has a PhD in Biology, which she received from the Florida State University. She is a registered dietitian affiliated with the American Dietetic Association, and is now involved in research writing. She also offers consultations in health, nutrition, and other environmental issues. Whitney has authored several books, including Nutrition and Diet Therapy, Understanding Normal and Clinical Nutrition, and more recently, Priceless Florida. Overall, the book offers fresh insights about health, nutrition, and fitness in a light, friendly, and very informative manner suitable for students in the medical field, as well as mixed-majors.
