    more from this reviewer

    This book won't save your life. You will. This book is an essential tool. You'll need it if you are managing what you eat. If you're on a commercial diet, you won't read it anyway. If you're serious, you will.

    This is a no-frills guide to food content for many foods. I need 70 grams of protein a day, and this helps me figure out how much I'm getting when it's not marked on the label, or when I'm out. I've lost 70 pounds using it, and its structure is very good for what I want. Some foods are not included (due to space limitations or excessive variation for the item), but one can usually extrapolate from something like it in the listings. This is a good feature, since it makes one think -- and since thoughtful, mindful self-management seems to be key for those of us who are chronically overweignt. (It seems that we don't have the sort of appetite or food judgment that really slender folks do. At least, I don't. The book helps.) When home, I weigh my food. That helps with portion control. I haven't been hungry yet. There is a protein-needs estimator and a BMI formula in the front of the book, and they are fairly good -- and agree with what my nutritionist says. I carry the book everywhere and have a good bit of it memorized. Sooner or later, I'll get to know the foods I need -- and then I'll be in better control. After 61 years of fighting weight, I'm being successful, and this book is helping. Weight loss is calories in vs calories out with good nutrition being essential throughout. Anything else tends to be temporary and why, I ask, go through THAT agony more than once?
