Amazon review for the previous edition:
‘Anyone who is thinking of dieting – STOP HERE. This is the handyman guide to dieting. All weight loss classes will ask you to keep a watch on how many calories/fats/carbohydrates you eat per day – BUT they never explain to you what foods have what in them…. If you don’t know, you need this book’
This edition takes in new areas: children's food (is your child eating a balanced diet?), fast food (how much do you need to burn off after that Big Mac?) and family favourites (will my shepherd's pie break the calorie bank?). In addition to calorie content for each entry, details are also given of the amount of protein, carbohydrate, fat and dietary fibre, helping you to plan a balanced diet. The book comes complete with a table indicating the calorie intake appropriate to a range of activities, from ironing to rowing.
