This little reference guide is hands-down the Number One Nutrition Counter used by various weight loss and weight maintenance programs for hospitals, clinics, military, fire and police health & wellness programs across the U.S.A.! 

A nifty nutrition reference and pocket counter that gives the reader "how-to" guidance to determine carb, fat and protein goals based on total calories ( three-easy-steps). This authorative reference provies values for calories, carbs, carb choices, protein, fat, sat fat, cholesterol, sodium and fiber content for more than 4,500 foods, including 20 fast food (quick service) restaurant chains. Also provides carb goals for people with diabetes and a carb conversion chart for grams of carbs to carb choices. Includes brand-name products, fresh foods, vegetarian dishes, prepared foods and fast-food favorites.

This book has the information you need to make healthy food choices at home or on the run. It can help you manage your weight, improve your blood sugar and cholesterol levels, or help you control your blood pressure. It can answer questions such as:

  • How many daily carbs is right for me?
  • I'm standing in line....which sandwich listed on the menu board is a better choice for me?
  • What brand name dressing provides the least amount of sodium?
  • I get to choose the restaurant this week for our department, which one offers the most low-fat menu choices?
  • Muffin, scone or Danish...which one has the most fiber and the least calories?
  • I'm so hungry for pizza, what's the fat and calorie difference between medium or thin crust?

"I just retired and this book was the most help in bringing my A1c level down from 8.0 to 6.0.  I also dropped 35 pounds in about eight months. The biggest thing I've learned is portion control."

--K Walker, Allegany, NY

"I've lost 33 pounds in six months. This little book made the difference;
I take it with me wherever I go."

-D Reiger, St. Louis, MO

"I didn't think I could do it, but I've stayed off a statin drug because I dropped by total cholesterol from 252 to 200 by watching what I eat, choosing those foods with the least amount of calories, or lower in fat and salt."

-W Steinburgen, Butte, MT
