Format: Paperback
This book should be titled "Total Guide to Nutrition AND Fitness". Ms. Bauer does a great job of explaining nutrition and it's role in maintaining one's health. She also covers exercise, pregnancy, eating disorders, and dieting. Quite a complete book. Don't let the "Idiot's" title fool you--this book goes into detail with many topics and serves as much more than just an intro. Bravo Ms. Bauer!

Not only does it come across clearly and easy to understand. It is well written covering nutrition for infants to elderly people for lazy people to physically active people. She lays it all out on a silver platter.
Another masterpiece by the best nutritionist.
Buy it or you will be missing out.

Format: Paperback
I'm a professional, but frankly never learned good fundamentals of nutrition. This book really lays out the basics, including all the compounds that nourish our bodies. I was definitely empowered to change my eating habits, understand why some foods are good and bad, and dig down to the next level of detail. This is a great book in the "Idiot's" series and I would say this is a good book to have around your bookshelf.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book that gave good, fundamental guidelines for eating healthy. This book does that and so much more. This is the kind of information you would get in a nutrion class at a college, not the kind you get from the latest fad diet book. Food groups are explained, nutrion value is given for many foods, supplements are explained, and even fitness is explained. If you are looking for an easy to understand book that still has complete information on how to eat and live healthy this is it. If you are looking for the latest fad diet, keep looking.

This book is exactly what it says it is: a simple guide for people who know nothing about nutrition. I've found it to be very helpful, and surprisingly interesting.

It was delivered quickly, and arrived in perfect condition.

I have read previous books on nutrition, but none are as interesting as this. It is very easy to understand, and very intersting. The author uses a lot of examples and metaphors too. Just a simple, interesting read if you're interested in learning about nutrition.
