Count your calories, protein, fiber, carbs, and fat grams...

This small and convenient book has a slightly misleading name: It's not just a carb counter! It also includes calories, protein, fiber, net carbs, and fat grams for each entry.

With more than 1,200 listings, including hundreds of brand-name products, this handy, portable reference is organized into food categories such as "Poultry," "Snacks, Cookies and Candies," and "Beverages." Both generic and brand name foods are included, as are newer products such as terra chips and soy crisps. The "Dining Out" section covers general restaurant meals (for example, when eating at a Chinese restaurant, choose beef with mushrooms instead of a lo mein dish), and specific fast food chains such as Wendy's, Domino's, McDonald's and Pizza Hut. You'll find all the information you need to make informed decisions about what -- and how much -- you eat.

Dr. Atkins also includes pointers (such as how to measure portion sizes when you're not at home), and reassuring advice: "Don't torture yourself if you accidentally consume something that's been batter dipped or breaded. Remember it's only one meal!"
