You've heard the phrase, "You are what you eat"? This text gives you a better understanding of the phrase, and hits home the simple but obvious truth. You really are what you eat! Nutrition Concepts and Controversies has been a cornerstone in nutrition classes across North America, serving the needs of students and professors in building a healthier future. In keeping with this tradition, the Second Canadian Edition will continue to explore the ever-changing frontier of nutrition knowledge in Canada, reflecting our Canadian cultural identity and helping students achieve both their learning and health goals, while maintaining strong user-celebrated pedagogy.

The Canadian edition incorporates Canada's new food guide along with a wealth of Canadian examples, references and updates.
