Overview

The history of diets, weightloss, and health has been a volatile one. Once we thought that calories were all that mattered, then we decided it was fat that was the enemy, then came the low–carb craze. The current conventional wisdom is that there's no one, easy answer, and all of these factors contribute to weight gain and health in different ways. Perhaps the most unexpected discovery is that some fats (like olive oil and omega fats) are actually good for you!

This book is the first available resource that really gets to the bottom of current dietary thinking. It is invaluable for calculating the amount and type of fats, calories and carbs in over 3,500 foods commonly found on supermarket shelves and in restaurants. For dieters on everything from the South Beach Diet to the Mediterranean Diet to the Fat Smash Diet, this is the go–to resource for getting the most up–to–date and complete nutrition information available.

Very disapointing, the synopsis leads you to believe that the book includes a list of the nutritional values of over 3500 foods and that you can take it food shopping and to restaurants with you to help you to make informed choices on you food decisions. There is no such list, I feel cheated. The book was 28 pages of basic information, just glad I didn't waste too much money on it.

This appears to be a pretty thorough book of food values since it has been apparently updated (2011). It says 29 pages, but there are 90 pages of food values, all numbered page 23. I am glad I purchased it for my Nook. The only problem is the type is very small for the food values. I would also like to have seen protein and sodium values.
