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.
