If you really want to analyze and/or change your diet, you need to know more than a count of the calories you're taking in; you also need to know the fat, cholesterol, fiber, and sodium. You get all this and more from The Complete Book of Food Counts, a 770-page paperback that lists every food you can think of, including brand-name items. Each food is analyzed by calories; grams of protein, carbohydrate, fat, and fiber; and milligrams of cholesterol and sodium. Let's say you're trying to stick to a healthy diet that is high in fiber and low in fat and sodium. Look up a food item and you'll see an array of brands compared, making it easy to find the healthiest choices. All major brands of packaged, canned, and frozen food items are listed. You can even look up a chain restaurant and check out menu options before you order; for example, a Carl's Jr. Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich feeds you 530 calories and a whopping 30 grams of fat (the same as a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with cheese!) and 1,230 milligrams of sodium. Know what you're eating--look it up before you buy! --Joan PriceFrom the Publisher:
