About this Item

Language: English . Brand New Book. The T-Factor Fat Gram Counter grew out of The T-Factor Diet, the first popular diet book to show that fat was (and is) the major culprit in the American diet. All calories, Dr. Martin Katahn told us, are not created equal: his metabolic studies showed that the fat we consume in our food, as opposed to the carbohydrate and protein, is converted most efficiently to body fat and may lead to such conditions as cancer, hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes. The T-Factor Fat Gram Counter tells you everything you need to know to cut the hidden fat out of your food. It also provides a brief overview of vital diet and exercise principles, and target levels of fat consumption for men and women at varying body weights. Once you understand the role of dietary fat, you are liberated forever from the need to cut calories or even restrict your overall intake of food. Spend a few minutes a day checking the fat levels in various foods and making sensible choices, and you are well on your way to a longer, happier, and healthier life.

From the Inside Flap:

The best-selling "T-Factor 2000 Fat Gram Counter" has been updated an expanded to more than 2,000 foods, including menu items from the nation's top ten restaurant chains. Use this handy pocket-size counter to help you recognize, and reduce, the fat in your diet. Reducing intake of fat is the most important change you can make in your diet to improve your health and control your weight. Too much fat in the diet is implicated in heart disease, certain forms of cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and gallbladder disease. Metabolic research has established that it's primarily too much fat in your diet that makes you overweight, not carbohydrate or protein. Health authorities agree that adults should restrict fat to between 20 and 30 percent of total calories. Recent research shows that people who have lost significant amounts of weight and are successful in keeping it off consume approximately 25 percent ofd calories in fat. Many cancer specialists suggest a prevention diet of only 20 percent. roughly speaking, on average, women need no more than 50 grams of fat a day, and men, 60. You can use the chart on page 8 of this counter to calculate your quota more precisely. To lose weight, women should average between 20 and 40 grams of fat per day, and men, 30 to 60. Lower intake will usually lead to quicker loss. Fat provides some essential nutrients, so DO NOT GO BELOW 20 GRAMS OF FAT A DAY (or about 10 percent of total calories). Keep track of your fat intake for 21 days, include regular exercise (e.g., walking briskly for at least 30 to 45 minutes a day), and you will be well on your way to a happier, healthier, longer life, as well as a slimmer body if you are overweight. The complete explanation of the scientific principles behind the low-fat lifestyle plus recipes, meal plans, and exercise tips ate all found in "The T-Factor 2000 Diet," published by W.W. Norton and now available at Amazon.com.
