Foundations and Clinical Applications of Nutrition: A Nursing Approach approaches the study of nutrition and diet therapy from the personal and professional perspective of nursing students. It emphasizes the role of nursing in health promotion and primary prevention, as well as in medical nutrition therapy. Skills essential for nursing professionals are emphasized for implementation and education of patients and clients about prescribed dietary patterns. A special feature entitled The Nursing Approach ends each chapter, demonstrating the continual application of the nursing process to each content area, and nursing-related content is integrated throughout the text. Margin definitions and margin notes provide further understanding of chapter content, as well as practical teaching tips for use with clients/patients. Life Span Approach icons highlight age-related variations that require modification of assessment and teaching. Teaching Tool boxes provide practical approaches to teaching clients about nutrient and medical nutrition therapy. When appropriate, specific issues of literacy such as strategies for enhancing patient education for those with low literacy skills are also presented in these boxes. Myth boxes provide a basis for eliminating misconceptions about nutrition and health by clarifying the facts. Health Debate boxes encourage students to develop their own opinions on controversial health issues. Social Issue boxes explore ethical, social, and community concerns on local, national, and international levels to emphasize the various influences on health and wellness. Cultural Considerations boxes and a cultural sensitivity approach include ethnic food pyramids and highlight multicultural issues to help students approach, interview, and assess patients from diverse cultural backgrounds. Toward a Positive Nutrition Lifestyle sections in numerous chapters feature psychosocial strategies to support behavioral changes related to health for students and their clients/patients. The Nursing Approach feature demonstrates the continual application of the nursing process to each content area. Critical Thinking/Clinical Applications offer case study scenarios in the medical nutrition therapy chapters, allowing students to apply knowledge to actual clinical situations. Applying Content Knowledge sections provide review questions for students to ensure chapter content comprehension. Web Sites of Interest allow for further study of chapter concepts. The chapter on Management of Body Composition takes a contemporary approach to weight and acknowledges that total fitness and wellness can be experienced by persons of all sizes and equips nurses to educate and support this approach. Healthy People 2010 nutrition goals and objectives are incorporated where applicable, integrating personal nutrition goals with national objectives for communities. This framework clarifies how the nutritional status of our communities reflects individual nutritional health. Features a new chapter on Complementary and Alternative Therapies. Traditional medicine is being challenged by complementary and alternative perspectives; the authors have written this new chapter to provide students with an introduction to these perspectives. Includes the latest Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) information and guidelines (including the newest publication, Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrates, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids), providing students with the tools to interpret ever-changing nutrition information, as well as the skills to make well-informed personal and professional decisions. A new Web Activities icon directs students online for answers to text activities, plus additional activities and answers, to enhance comprehension of chapter content.

Mit Mitte 20 war Dave Asprey ein erfolgreicher Unternehmer im Silicon Valley und Multimillionär. Doch er wog auch 140 Kilo, und das obwohl er der Empfehlung seiner Ärzte folgte, an sechs Tagen pro Woche nur 1800 Kalorien zu essen und 90 Minuten zu trainieren. Als sein Übergewicht ihm zunehmend die Sinne zu vernebeln begann und Heißhungerattacken ihm Energie und Willenskraft raubten, fing Asprey an, die Technologien, mit denen er reich geworden war, selbst zu nutzen, um seine eigene Biologie zu "hacken". Er investierte 15 Jahre und 300?000 Dollar in alle erdenklichen Testverfahren und Selbstversuche, vom EEG bis zu einem Aufenthalt in einem tibetischen Kloster, um herauszufinden, wie er seinem Körper und Geist ein maximales Upgrade verschaffen konnte. Bulletproof – auf Deutsch "kugelsicher" oder "unverwundbar" – nennt er den Status, in dem man konstante Höchstleistung bringen kann, ohne auszubrennen oder krank zu werden. Asprey gelang es, seinen IQ um mehr als 20 Punkte zu erhöhen, sein biologisches Alter zu senken und ohne Kalorienzählen oder Sport 50 Kilo abzunehmen. Seine vielfältigen Erkenntnisse versammelt er in diesem Buch. Die Bulletproof-Diät hemmt entzündliche Prozesse im Körper, sorgt für schnellen, hungerfreien Gewichtsverlust und höchste Leistungsfähigkeit. Anstelle eines Frühstücks gibt es den berühmten Bulletproof-Kaffee mit Kokosöl und Butter, der lange sättigt und einen dauerhaften Energieschub verschafft. Kalorienzählen ist nicht nötig und auch bei weniger Schlaf und weniger Sport wird das überschüssige Fett nur so dahinschmelzen.

Nutrition is a topic of wide interest and importance. In spite of growing understanding of the underlying biochemistry, and health campaigns such as 'five-a-day', increasing obesity and reported food allergies and eating disorders, as well as the widely advertised 'supposed' benefits of food supplements mean that a clear explanation of the basic principles of a healthy diet are vital. In this Very Short Introduction, David Bender explains the basic elements of food, the balance between energy intake and exercise, the problems of over- and under-nutrition, and raises the question of safety of nutritional supplements. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Modelling Nutrient Digestion and Utilisation in Farm Animals

For more than 30 years, modelling has been an important method for integrating, in a flexible, comprehensive and widely applicable way, basic knowledge and biological concepts on digestion and metabolism in farm animals. The purpose of this book is to present the 'state of art' in this area. The chapters are written by leading teams and researchers in this field of study, mainly from Europe, North America and Australasia. Considerable progress has been made in topics dealing with: modelling methods, feeding behaviour, digestion and metabolic processes in ruminants and monogastric animals. This progress is clearly illustrated by the emergence of a new paradigm in animal nutrition, which has moved from the aim to cover the requirements of the animal to explaining and predicting the responses of the animals to diets (e.g., productivity and efficiency, impact on quality of products, environmental aspects, health and well-being). In this book several chapters illustrate that through empirical models, meta-analysis is an efficient tool to synthesize information gathered over recent decades. In addition, compared with other books on modelling farm animal nutrition, two new aspects received particular attention: expanding knowledge of the individual animal to understanding the functioning and management of herds, and the consideration of the environmental impact of animal production. This book is a valuable source of information for researchers, nutritionists, advisors, and graduate students who want to have up-to-date and concise information on mathematical modelling applied to farm animals.

"Debates continue to rage about what diet is best, in part because an underlying theoretical framework for choosing one over another has been lacking. Not so any longer. "The Nature of Nutrition" demystifies the complexity of nutrition and diet choice and shows why people and other creatures eat the way they do. Along the way, readers learn about the adaptive value of cannibalism, the impact of diet on sex lives, how dietary choices affect entire ecosystems, and so much more."--Daniel Rubenstein, Princeton University ""The Nature of Nutrition" is a must-read for anyone interested in the role nutrition plays in the survival of the fittest. Starting with the "Origin of Species," Simpson and Raubenheimer guide us through the nutritional strategies that maintained reproductive health and mating behaviors despite periods of food shortage and danger from predators. The protein leverage hypothesis provides a solid foundation to explain the growing global epidemic of human obesity."--Eric Ravussin, Pennington Biomedical Research Center, Louisiana State University System "A fascinating and authoritative treatment of nutrition in an ecological and evolutionary framework. Simpson and Raubenheimer's novel perspective crosses disciplines, from the organism to the population to the ecosystem, providing a long-needed unifying framework to what has previously largely been the domain of clinical science."--Simon A. Levin, Princeton University "This outstanding book provides the first comprehensive theoretical framework for analyzing the roles of nutrition across a huge swath of fields, from ecology and evolution to conservation and human health." The Nature of Nutrition" is creative and scholarly yet approachable. I know of no other book like it."--Bernard J. Crespi, Simon Fraser University ""The Nature of Nutrition" covers a vast range of issues, from reproduction, immunology, and toxicology to insect migration, population ecology, predator-prey interactions, and ecosystem functioning, as well as applied issues such as conservation biology and human nutritional pathologies. I enjoyed each and every chapter of this excellent book."--Kenneth Wilson, Lancaster University
