Editorial Reviews for this title:
From the publishers of The Complete and Up-to-Date Fat Book, selling 1.7 million copies, comes an encyclopedic reference covering over 30,000 food products. Designed to help readers understand the new nutrition labels required by the FDA, this easy-to-use guide covers generic, supermarket, specialty, and homemade products.
The word "diet" means more than eating less. It's cutting down on some factors (fat, usually), and getting enough of others. If you're serious about eating healthfully and losing weight, you need more than a list of calories: you need a reliable source of comprehensive dietary information. That's where Nutrition Facts comes in. Within its pages are more than 40,000 entries that list everything from abalone to zucchini--raw foods, fast foods, and brand names included. For each item Art Ulene presents calories, protein, carbohydrates, sodium, fiber, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, percent of calories from fat, plus vitamins and minerals. He takes the guesswork out of healthful eating, and provides the wherewithal for you to follow through on your laudable intents.
