Named a top health book by Ladies Home Journal, The American Dietetic Association's Complete Food & Nutrition Guide teaches how to combine "good taste and good health" in every meal and snack. No matter how nutritionally impaired you think you are, you'll find clear, understandable information on the basics of metabolism and weight management, vegetarianism, nutrition for athletes, food allergies, and more. The section on eating during pregnancy and breast-feeding is absolutely essential reading for any mom-to-be, as are the chapters on feeding fussy toddlers. If you can't tell radicchio from daikon or don't know how to pronounce quinoa, the superb index will certainly come in handy.

The ADA takes a conservative stance on vitamin and mineral supplements, focusing instead on combining proper foods to maximize absorption, and there's little information about other supplements such as enzymes. But if you need help sorting the food fads from facts, the Complete Food & Nutrition Guide can't be beat. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
