Last year the USDA updated the food groups again. If you purchase the book new you will get an insert with the updated "myplate" info. The used book does not contain the updated information so I'm having to go online to get the information I need for class. It is worth the savings to buy it used and go online for the myplate stuff I need for class.

I bought this book for a course and it is very well written. This is a massive amount of information but the book walks through each section nicely. There are numerous visuals to go with each group of information. I think some of the anatomy ones could be better, bigger and clearer but for the most part these are very well done.

This book is a wonderful and easy supplement to the nutrition course I am currently taking. It makes what may seem potentially complicated terms very easy to understand, and has wonderful practice assignments to supplement the reading.

Excellent nutrition book! Easy to read and understand. Even if it wasn't purchased for a class, it would have been a very comprehendable text.

I purchased this book for a class I started a week ago. The school wanted $156 for this book and I found it here for only $0.50. Yes, I couldn't believe the price of the book when I first see it, I had to double check it because I couldn't believe my eyes. I just received my book today; rapid service. This book is in excellent condition. There are no visible marks or rips on the book. It practically looked like I just walked in the bookstore and purchased it. I'm very satisfied with my purchase and I recommend this seller to anyone. Nutrition and You

I purchased what was supposed to be a new book. A new textbook would still have the access code covered in a silver foil showing that the access code has not been redeemed. The access code has been redeemed on this book causing me to miss out on much needed information that I would be able to access via the Pearson textbook website. I will have to purchase a new code which will cost me more money than what I would have spent purchasing the book through the school bookstore. Do not advertise a book as being new when in fact it is clearly a used book!
