At every phase in developing the American Dietetic Association Complete Food and Nutrition Guide, I've been grateful and indebted to the many professionals, colleagues, and friends—in the fields of nutrition and dietetics; health, family and consumer sciences; food science; culinary arts; education; public policy; and communications—who have shared their knowledge, experience, and expertise throughout my career, and certainly during the development of this book. I'm especially grateful to:
The American Dietetic Association, for the honor of writing this book on behalf of the association's approximately 65,000 members.
Betsy Hornick, editor and registered dietitian, on behalf of ADA Publications, for her nutrition expertise, editorial guidance, and commitment to excellence at every phase in the development of this book in all three editions . . . and for her ongoing friendship.

The ADA Knowledge Center, Sharon Denny, Eleese Cunningham, and Wendy Marcason for their assistance and review to help ensure the scientific accuracy. ADA's Marketing, Communications and Corporate Relations Team for the many promotional efforts for the book.
