For readers who want understand the traditional chemical organization, each chapter lists a table and brief discussion of the vitamins or minerals grouped into the water-soluble and fat-soluble categories. Key Topics: Nutrition: Making It Work for You, The Human Body: Are We Really What We Eat?, Carbohydrates: Plant-Derived Energy Nutrients, Fat: An Essential Energy-Supplying Nutrient, Proteins: Crucial Components of All Body Tissues, Vitamins: Micronutrients with Macro Powers, Minerals: Building and Moving Our Bodies, Fluid Balance, Water, and Alcohol, Achieving and Maintaining a Healthful Body Weight, Nutrition and Physical Activity: Keys to Good Health, Nutrition Throughout the Life Cycle, Nutrition Issues: The Safety and Security of the Worldrsquo;s Food Supply Market:Intended for those who are interested in learning the basics of nutrition.
