Product Features

Relevant issues in the form of "Do You Ever" questions begin each chapter by asking students to consider personal nutrition issues related to the chapter, piquing their interest and inviting them to read on. For example, Chapter 13 asks: "Do you ever wonder whether pregnant women really crave pickles and ice cream?" and, "Do you ever stop to think how much alcohol it takes to harm an unborn child?" In-chapter resources promote learning and understanding. Marginal notes within each chapter highlight key terms. End-of-chapter "Self-Checks" enable students to evaluate their progress. And "Think Fitness" boxes emphasize the connection and the interdependency of fitness and nutrition for total health. "Controversy" end-of-chapter essays provide a balanced view of scientific evidence regarding current and emerging topics in nutrition. Each Controversy has been thoroughly updated, and two new Controversies added: Chapter 4 "Are Carbohydrates 'Bad' for Health?" and Chapter 11 Controversy, "Nutritional Genomics: Can It Deliver on Its Promises?" There is also new information on vegetarian diet planning, supplements, antioxidant-rich foods, and more. For a full listing of updates, visit and click on "Chapter Updates." "Consumer Corner" features address consumer nutrition issues such as low-carbohydrate weight-loss diets, the wisdom of using amino acid supplements, pros and cons of irradiated foods, and others. The "Food Feature" feature helps readers apply chapter concepts to their own food choices, covering such issues as defensive dining, vitamin-rich foods, diet as preventive medicine, and more. A new feature of the text, "Concepts in Action" activities, connect the specifics of the Food Feature to the students' own dietary tracking in Diet Analysis Plus. Diet Analysis Plus lets students track their diet and physical activity, and analyze the nutritional value of the food they eat so they can adjust their diets to reach personal health goals--all while gaining a better understanding of how the concepts in the text relate to, and impact, their lives. It includes a 20,000+ food database; 11 customizable reports for analysis; 10 new assignable labs; custom food and recipe features; the latest Dietary Reference Intakes; and goals and actual percentages of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals.

Product Information

Too busy to work out on a daily basis? Turn to the TrekDesk treadmill desk, which encourages you to walk slowly on a treadmill while you talk to clients, type up proposals, or catch up on your email. Designed to attach to most existing treadmills, the TrekDesk was originally built for offices, with a variety of features meant to keep employees productive and fit throughout the day. The desktop offers a generous workspace that measures 72 inches long by 34 inches wide, and includes such desktop accessories as a manuscript holder that keeps books and magazines upright; a file folder with three levels; accessory slots to keep accessories on the desktop; a top stand that holds your telephone, headset, or cell phone; and two cup/utility holders. The desk's center cutout, meanwhile, keeps all treadmill controls and accessories within easy reach, while also positioning your body close enough to type on a laptop or use a mouse. And despite the TrekDesk's foldable design, it's extremely sturdy when attached, with two height-adjustable support legs (fixed 49 inches apart) providing a solid, robust steel base, and a premium powder-coated steel frame that's built to last a lifetime. The frame is topped off by a resilient, steel-reinforced, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) desktop.

The TrekDesk offers a number of benefits to both work and home users. Not only does it encourage weight loss, disease prevention, and overall physical health, but it also improves your mood and increases your productivity. Studies show that a TrekDesk can increase blood flow to the brain, helping improve your memory by as much as 15 percent in a six-month period. At the same time, walking on a treadmill promotes healthy restorative sleep patterns, which in turn decreases your stress levels and keeps you happier. In short, the TrekDesk can help encourage a total overhaul of your mental and physical well-being.

Other features include beveled edges for comfort and appearance; a height-adjustment console that adjusts to the perfect ergonomic position for typing (the desktop suits employees between 5 feet 4 inches and 6 feet 4 inches tall); robust metal support arms for added strength and durability; and a durable scuff-resistant work surface. The TrekDesk--which sets up easily within 30 to 45 minutes--supports up to 55 pounds of equipment and weighs 57 pounds by itself. It also carries a two-year warranty.
