Great Resource! March 18 2007
By DAR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is much more than just a list of carb counts. First, it teaches what carbs are, including the often confusing sugar alcohols. Then it gives you a choice of carb counting methods, from very basic to very technical. It teaches how to use each method, read labels, and estimate when necessary. There are food lists for each method and quizzes to make sure you're understanding the info. Of course, there is also a list of total carbs and fiber in 2500 different foods. I have been counting carbs for 4 years, but found new (to me) info in this book.

Easy way to count carbs!!!! Aug. 31 2007
By C. Blair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We have had several books on this topic but none have been as complete. This one book clearly teaches how to count carbs easily. There are exhaustive lists on foods and their "carb-counts". And there are even charts of many well-known eating establishments and how to count carbs when eating "in" or "taking out".

Very helpful book Feb. 25 2008
By K. Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is well-written and contains much information that is very helpful for those who have the responsibilty for monitoring carbs for a person with diabetes. I especially appreciate the sections dealing with sugar alcohols and carb counts for ethnic and restuarant foods. What a help!

Great Book Beyond Just Carb Counts Nov. 5 2008
By Smart4 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well this book was really a great mistake. What I mean is, I was trying to find a book that was just a list of carb counts. Instead, we received a book filled with helpful information on carb counting beyond 'the list'. My husband is a type 1 diabetic, and I really watch my carbs, so this book has helped us both a lot. The info on stuff like sugar alcohols, etc. helps a lot because many of the packages are labeled in misleading ways regarding 'net' carbs'. This book gave us some answers as to which ones I can subtract (for weight control) as opposed to which ones my husband can and cant subtract (that still can affect bood sugar). The eating out guides are great, but the way restaurants change menus, the info gets outdated quickly. However, getting into the habit of asking for nutrition info makes it easy to work it all out for yourself.

Not a good choice for the Kindle... Aug. 21 2010
By Lesley O'Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, this book doesn't have an active table of contents for the Kindle edition, so it's next to useless for that purpose. My husband was recently diagnosed with Type II diabetes, and among the four books on diabetes and carbs etc. I've downloaded for our Kindles, this is the only one that wasn't easily searchable. I've already received my refund from Amazon. Too bad.
