Nutrition For Dummies is for anyone who cares about what they eat, and wants to know about the facts, not the fads.

Finding easy to understand and sensible advice on what you should be eating is easier said than done – advice seems to constantly change and fad diets only seem to help celebrities pile on the pounds in their bank account, rather than making any of us healthier! In this book, Nigel Denby and Sue Baic, two experienced and registered dieticians, dispel all myths and provide you with the information you need to eat for a healthy life. They explain every aspect of the subject from the basics about essential nutrients to the relationship between allergies and food and give you the knowledge and confidence to start making wise food choices.

Inside you’ll find information on:

Digestion: The 24-Hour Food Factory

Calories: The Energisers
