great nutrition resource June 14 2014
By Margaret E. Skarphol - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This has nutrition details for a great variety of foods. Each food is listed alphabetically and then has brand names. Included are portion, calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesteral, protein, carbs, sugar, fiber, calcium, sodium, potassium, folic acid and vitamin C. So complete and helpful!

Great reference book for nutritional information- not JUST calories, protein, carbs, fat, and fiber ! Nov. 15 2013
By JillinoisRN - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great resource for those needing to keep track of various nutrients- I'm diabetic, so need to keep track of carbs, and like to keep track of protein (harder to get enough of sometimes). This book has a LOT of brand name items, as well as more unusual foods, and even some over-the-counter medicines ! It's larger than a mass-market paperback book that I've used for years, but has a LOT more entries (at least ones I'm interested in !). The first 55 pages are an overview of nutritional basics as well as a glossary of various diet types and terms. I think I've finally found one book that does the job of many :)

Disappointed so many foods do not have potassium data available! May 7 2015
By Ron - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I need to go on a low potassium diet so I looked through my copy of this book for potassium. I found that many foods have a dash under potassium and no numbers. I mistakenly thought this meant that the food contained no potassium. Then I looked for some foods that I knew were loaded with potassium and saw that dash under them. I went to the front of the book to NOTES on page 60 and: --- (dash) indicates data was not available. This is a very good book, but very disappointed that so many foods have that dash under the potassium column. I now am trying to find another book that shows potassium for all foods. For the time being I'm searching the computer for information, and found that the law does not require that potassium be listed under Nutrition Facts.

Very complete calorie guide Oct. 9 2014
By Cheryl Pomeroy - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a calorie guide for mostly unprocessed foods -- fruits, veggies, meats, etc. No modern calorie guide seems to do that, however, this book does include a great variety of "regular" food and will serve my needs. The vast majority of contents are either processed foods from the grocer or from chain restaurants (which I have no need of). This is the only reason I give it a 4 star.

VERY Informative for Heart Patients March 14 2013
By K. Chandler - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was recently diagnosed with Coronary Artery Disease and had 2 stents placed in an artery. The RN at Cardiac Rehabilitation recommended this book at our first meeting. Since I am now on a low fat diet for life, I can't tell you how helpful this book has been at providing me with quick, first hand info. when preparing my grocery list or a meal. What I specifically like is the authors not only give you pertinent info. on packaged, processed foods by brand, but also on franchise restaurants and natural foods such as a simple potato, banana, etc. Also, it can be a fun read you can get lost in and consequently make you more aware of bad foods you have been eating or feeding your family. Sometimes when looking up one food I come across something I had no idea was so high or so low in fat, calories, etc. and then I move on from there out of curiosity. I highly recommend this book for everyone. You'll be amazed at what you've been eating.
