Dr. Michelle "Shelley" McGuire teaches in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition at Washington State University. She is the author of several published articles, and specializes in the research of understanding of how breastfeeding and lactation influence both maternal and child health and well-being. Recent research has focused on investigating how maternal diet influences milk fat content and, thus, energy intake and fatty acid consumption of the breastfeeding child. Dr. McGuire has been teaching the basic nutrition course for several years and has a strong appreciation of the course, its goals and objectives, and the variety of student needs. This experience coupled with her strong writing and research background has helped her create an exciting and refreshing text for the introductory nutrition course.

This was a great resource during my nutrition class.

And, some teachers do not explain some things very well, so reading this book helps in understanding the theory.

This book is very informative, easy to read, and an overall good source to have for Nutrition majors, or those interested in studying the subject. The layout is organized with many diagrams, graphs and tables which help out a lot.

I bought this book for class and I would say it really helps a lot in a way that it gives more explanations and more details about things that are not discussed in class. Because usually teachers do require reading and details that are not covered in class would still be on the test. And, some teachers do not explain some things very well, so reading this book helps in understanding the theory.

Book gives a good overview of the science behind nutrition. Way better then other books I have purchased. Contains interesting case studies that allow one to read about how nutritional intervention can help and also how nutrition plays into many diseases/conditions. Wasn't too difficult to read, lots of pictures definitely helped. Overall, an excellent introductory text to nutritional science.
