The third edition of this leading textbook builds upon the excellent foundation of the previous two editions. It explains and explores the science underlying our current understanding of the interactions between diet and health, and the basis for current dietary goals and recommendations. It also provides a concise and authoritative description of the biochemistry that is essential to an understanding of the functions of nutrients and the importance of diet and nutrition for health and disease. The discussion of metabolic pathways and their regulation is illustrated by clear and simple diagrams, and is linked throughout to nutritional and physiological aspects.

Detailing the energy-yielding macronutrients, carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins, this book discusses the body's need for these nutrients for growth, development and exercise.
This book and its companion book "Macroelements, Water, and Electrolytes in Sports Nutrition" address the relationship of macronutrient and macroelement needs and interactions to sports and exercise.
Ideal for individuals working in research in the energy areas of sports nutrition, Energy Yielding Macronutrients & Energy Metabolism in Sports Nutrition includes reviews of digestion, absorption, energy gains from energy-yielding macronutrients, nutritional implications of gender and age differences in energy metabolism, and weight loss and gain as influenced by caloric needs.
Containing work by both editors and contributors accomplished in the field, this book provides new and provocative insights into the relationship between energy-yielding macronutrients and exercise.

Adverse medication reactions account for up to 7,000 deaths annually in the United States. In today's era of polypharmacy, busy clinicians - especially those who practice in medical/surgical settings - must be able to quickly find and even anticipate psychiatric drug interactions. This book is divided into three parts. Part 1 defines the P450 human oxidase system and its critical importance in metabolizing both endogenous and exogenous compounds, thereby rendering them less active. It also presents an in-depth discussion, tailored for psychiatrists, of pharmacology. Part 2 discusses - complete with case studies and tables - each of the six enzymes (2D6, 3A4, 1A2, 2C9, 2C19 and 2E1) that account for 90% of human drug oxidation. Unique to this guide, part 3 arranges the drugs commonly used in nonpsychiatric medicine that have clinically significant P450 drug interactions by specialty and lists them in tables, with pertinent clinical and research data to support and clarify the issues. Concluding with appendices that offer suggestions about how to prescribe in a polypharmacy environment and monitor for drug interactions and tips on how to sort through the enormous amount of information available in this area, this concise "how-to" guide should prove valuable to students and practitioners in psychiatric (in complicated medical/surgical settings, such as geriatrics) and nonpsychiatric (primary care, family practice, internal medicine and obstetrics/gynaecology) specialties alike.
