Carbs & Cals & Protein & Fat is a visual guide to carbohydrate, protein, fat and calorie counting for weight loss, healthy eating and diabetes management. It contains over 1,400 photos of popular UK food and drink items, with the carbohydrate, calorie, protein and fat values clearly displayed above each photo. The 17-page introduction to the book contains information about losing weight, healthy eating, calories, carbohydrates, protein and fat. The 264 pages of photographs are arranged into 17 colour-coded sections: Biscuits & Crackers, Bread, Breakfast, Cakes & Bakery Items, Desserts, Drinks, Eggs & Cheese, Fruit, Meals, Meal Accompaniments, Meat, Chicken & Fish, Potatoes, Rice, Pasta & Grains, Sauces & Spreads, Snacks & Confectionery, Take-away Food, and Vegetables & Pulses. There are up to 6 different portion photos for each food, with their corresponding carbohydrate, calorie, protein and fat values displayed above each photo. This provides users with an easy comparison to the food on their plate and a helpful guide to the carbohydrate, calories, protein and fat they are consuming. The prepared/cooked weight is also shown below each photo. Calorie counting and monitoring of fat intake are an important part of weight management and healthy eating, and this book is an invaluable support tool for anyone engaged in this process. It takes out the guesswork and time spent weighing food by showing the calorie and nutrient content in each food photo. This allows the user to make choices on how to reduce calories and fat intake by choosing a smaller portion or swapping a food item that is in high calories for a healthier option. PLEASE NOTE: The Carbs & Cals & Protein & Fat Pocket Counter (ISBN 9781908261007) is a great portable accompaniment to the Carbs & Cals & Protein & Fat book. With all the same food and drink items, but in just 1 or 2 portion sizes, it's an extremely handy resource for when out and about.
