Nutrition: Science and Applications, Second Canadian Edition guides students towards an understanding of the scientific principles underlying what they know about nutrition. The research-based scientific content is detailed and supported by figures and comprehensive real-life examples that help students easily visualize complex processes. Using a critical thinking approach, the book contains many questions and exercises that require interpretation of research results and give students an opportunity to apply the concepts learned–both as consumers and as future scientists and health professionals. This second Canadian edition of this market leading text has updated references throughout, with seamlessly integrated Canadian content and an approach that helps students develop the scientific understanding to support their personal and professional nutrition decisions.
The subject of thermodynamics is rarely found in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology textbooks. Yet this material is fundamental to any serious inquisition concerning energy exchange.
This book provides a fresh approach to the study of energy expenditure by introducing the latest concepts in open system thermodynamics and cellular to whole-body energy exchange. The text traces biological energy exchange, from the molecules in the food we eat to the energy demands of rest, physical exertion and its recovery.
The carefully researched text advances traditional exercise physiology concepts by incorporating contemporary thermodynamic and cellular physiology principles into the context of a 'working' metabolism.
This book is written for upper level undergraduate and graduate students, but will also appeal to exercise physiologists, registered dieticians and nutritionists, and applies to cardiac rehabilitation, exercise science and health fitness programs.
This package includes a registration card for the Visualizing Nutrition, 2nd Edition WileyPLUS Blackboard course.
