Best Self-Help Book Ever! Mar 8, 2007
For anyone trying to track calories, carbs, salt intake or any dietary issue, this is the MUST HAVE book! My husband suffers from elevated blood pressure (prehypertension), and we are successfully using this book to reduce it! We find it makes shopping for low-sodium products much easier than standing in grocery aisles reading every can, carton, package for its sodium content. This book has so much information on the foods we eat (and brands), that one won't need any other guide! Great book.
DESK Reference Aug 6, 2005
This book really means it when it says Desk Reference. Too big to carry around. It is very complete and filled with name brands I never heard of. Gives you all the information one should ever require.
Bad data and misprints galore Mar 21, 2003
Part 3 of this book on Fast Food Chain Restaurant Values is completely messed up in the area of Fat and Saturated Fat.
The gram numbers for saturated fat are several times higher than the grams of total fat. This is impossible. Nor is the data from one column merely switched with the data from the other column. There is no pattern to the errors. This section of the book is useless.
The front of the book contains a disclaimer as to the accuracy of any entires in the book. They got that right!
Personally I cannnot rely on the data in the other sections when the data in one section is so inaccurate. My health is too important.
Best Nutrition Reference Book on the Market Jul 19, 2002
My trainer loaned me this book. He said he purchased it years ago and still considers it the very best nutrition book on the market. After using his copy, I ordered my own. Although at first the layout of the book may look intimidating, it isn't! It is actually so logical and simply layed out, it makes looking up anything a breeze. The typeface is perfect. I needed to keep food charts, so I had to find out calories and fat content of everything I ate. I hated the idea of doing this, but with this book it was quick and easy. It also includes all nutrition information you need for "junk food" like McDonald's, KFC, Taco Bell, etc. It will tell you calories, fat, sodium, cholestorol and more. The foods are listed on the left, the nutritional headings are listed across the top. So you look up shrimp and slide your finger to the right and go to the heading you need to have information about. The portion sizes are written in such a way, that they are perfectly clear. There is no chance for misunderstanding. I liked this feature a lot because the information was so concrete. Baked, fried, sauteed...it doesn't matter. He thought of everything. I have always been able to find exactly what I needed no matter how obscure I thought it was going to be. It's definitely in there. Buy this book. It is the most flawless reference book on nutrition I have ever used. It is designed for use by real people living in the real world.
This book helps me plan healthy meals Jul 13, 2002
I have recently embarked on improving my eating habits. I am finding this book to be a tremendous support. With it on my kitchen counter I find myself reaching for it several times a day to check calories or potasium levels of foods or to search through by column to find good sources of magnesium or other minerals or vitamins.
I am giving this book to a couple of friends who are also trying to improve their eating habits.
Thank you Dr. Ulene and your team for pulling this helpful information together in one spot!
