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.
The development of successful value chains to revive demand for traditional cereals such as millets plays an important role in ensuring health and nutrition security in India. This book is the first to demonstrate a successful and sustainable model for value addition to millets from production to consumption.Based on practical experience and the output of a National Agricultural Innovation Project, Value Chain in Millets for Health and Nutritional Security: A Replicable Success Model from India explores the development of an integrated approach to value addition to millets. All phases of the model are covered, including chapters on nutritional evaluation, on-farm cultivation, intervention in food processing, entrepreneurship development, commercialization and popularization and policy sensitization.This book outlines practical interventions to revive the demand for millets as a convenient and nutritive option for consumers, whilst presenting a reliable model that can be adapted for the development of other commodities.
