NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, 9th Edition, is unique in its organization by diets rather than by organ systems or disease states and distinguishes itself through rich pedagogical features that require students to apply their knowledge as they learn it. This text provides core nutrition concepts and up-to-date clinical content at a level that is accessible to the range of health care team members who are responsible for a client's nutrition needs. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY provides the basic facts and a wealth of practical information readers need to assume their responsibility for nutrition care.

  • Coverage of recent developments in nutrition-related public policy, scientific inquiry, and consumer education includes MyPlate resources, nutrition labeling standards, environmental obstacles to healthy lifestyles, iron homeostasis, and regulations on meals and snacks served in schools.
  • Updates to clinical practices and guidelines related to malnutrition classifications, weight management guidelines, relative energy deficiency in sport, vitamin B12 assessment, surgical treatment of liver disease, diabetes management, cardiovascular risk assessment, hypertension management, and chronic kidney disease evaluation have been integrated.
  • New illustrations or photos of Nutrition Facts labels, label claims, glycogen and starch molecules, replacing saturated with unsturated fats, and medical foods enhance understanding.
  • "Diet-Drug Interaction" boxes in Chapters 16-25 alert students to the many ways that drugs and nutrients can interact.
  • "Your Diet" exercises guide students through an analysis of their personal food choices, focusing on key nutrients.
  • NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY is organized by diets and broken into four distinct parts (basic nutrition, nutrition through the life cycle, nutrition in health care, and diet therapy).
  • Sample menus for therapeutic diets provide students with practical examples of meals tailored to meet the nutritional needs of an individual with a specific medical condition.
  • "Clinical Applications" exercises ask students to apply nutrition concepts to situations that might be encountered in a practical setting, as well as help them practice mathematical calculations, synthesize information from previous chapters, and understand the impact of nutrition on health care professionals or their clients.
  • "How To" boxes include step-by-step guides to estimations, calculations, and other facets of diet planning. Students are able to apply their critical thinking and mathematical skills.
  • "Nutrition Assessment" checklists remind students of the most relevant assessment findings specific to a group of disorders and provide cautions regarding the interpretation of assessment parameters.
  • "Self Check" questions test students' recall of key concepts.
  • Reviewer-praised "Nutrition in Practice" features appear at the end of every chapter and explore current topics and specialty areas that relate to students' future careers.
