Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books both educate consumers about food labels, but only one is strictly a diet book. A former health columnist for the Los Angeles Times, nutritionist Ursell (fellow, Royal Soc. of Health) explains all the tricks to reading and understanding food labels and breaks down the U.S. government agencies and their authority in food manufacturing. Did you know, for instance, that the FDA considers irradiation a food additive that must be declared on the ingredients list? Or that durability indications (i.e., "best before" dates) are not required by law except for milk and eggs? Ursell covers children's food and organic food as well and even explains symbols and logos such as "Fair Trade" and "Dolphin Safe." Nutritionist Jibrin (The Unofficial Guide to Dieting Safely) maintains that cooking quick-and-easy meals at home is the key to losing weight and keeping it off. Though she devotes an entire chapter to not being "duped" by food labels, this is a diet book with sample menus and basic recipes tested by Good Housekeeping. The diet begins with a two-week "Boot Camp" that is supposed to help readers lose three to five pounds and leads up to "Keep on Losin'" and "Keeping It Off" programs for maintenance after weight loss. Helpful "Super Tips" such as opting for fiber, nuts, and "good fats" are interspersed throughout. Jibrin's book is well written and practical, and Ursell's is easy to read, small, inexpensive, and could easily be carried to the supermarket to help consumers purchase healthy foods. Both are recommended for all libraries.-Carla McLean, Kent Regional Lib., King Cty. Lib. Syst., WA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
