Some of the topics covered in the workbook are the following: overview of your body’s nutrients, tools for eating health, your metabolism, your body’s digestion, absorption, and transport for carbohydrates, fats and other lipids, proteins, water and fat soluble vitamins, and major and minor minerals.
