Healthy Eating: A Guide to Nutrition Series

Good nutrition is important for a healthy, long, and productive life. To function properly, the body must take in a balanced diet rich in carbohydrates, triglyceride lipids (like fats and oils), and proteins. Healthy Eating: A Guide to Nutrition provides people of all ages with guidance on choosing and maintaining a healthy diet, and explores how nutrition plays a role in areas such as sports, weight loss, disease prevention, and human development.

With fully up-to-date content, this new set provides readers with the information they need to make smart choices for a healthy lifestyle. Researchers will appreciate the appendixes, which include BMI charts and recommended daily intakes. Suggestions for further resources, a glossary, and an index round out these informative titles.

The St.George Senior Library has three books from the series: Basic Nutrition, Nutrition and Weight Management, and Nutrition for Sports and Exercise.
