Reviews - What do customers think about The NutriBase Guide to Fat & Cholesterol in Your Food?

Fast Food/Restaurant Chain Information Useless  Aug 10, 2003
The data in the fast food/restaurant chain section is frequently erroneous. For example, if you look under Shoney's to see how much fat one of their fried eggs has, this book tells you that such an egg has 274 grams of saturated fat. At 9 calories per gram, each Shoney's egg would thus have an impossible 2466 calories. This section repeats this kind of strange error frequently, making it uesless as a guide to minimizing fat when eating out.
Lots of frustrating entries  Jan 22, 2002
I bought this book to find out how many grams of saturated fat was in the food I was eating. However, although this is included as a column, many of the entries gave the abbreviation "mq." According to authors this means that the food "may contain a measurable quantity." After looking at another Nutribase guide for more clarification, I found that this abbreviation is used to indicate that the food can have fluctuations in whatever it is that was being measured, and this can vary from nonsignificant amounts to substantial amounts.

This, however, does no good for me. Might as well not give me any information. I'd rather have a food counter that takes a stab at it and gives me an average rather than no information at all. I returned the book and got something else.

If you're not buying a fat counter to keep track of saturated fat, then I suppose this counter will work quite well. Since saturated fat is the main dietary source of elevated cholesterol, however, I can't imagine why someone would think it's OK to do without any saturated fat readings.
