Description


Healthy eating is easier than ever with this guide to 12 essential nutrient values for thousands of foods—now with an index and 3 new restaurant chains!


For people looking to lose weight, manage health issues like diabetes or high blood pressure, or simply consume a greater variety of nutrients, knowing what’s in each meal and snack is key. But with so many options for what to eat, keeping up with nutritional data can be overwhelming.


Enter The Food Counter’s Pocket Companion, which supplies authoritative data on the nutrient content of 4,500 foods, 100s of grocery store brands, and 32 popular chain restaurants from across the US and Canada—all under common-sense, quick-reference categories from A to Z. This new edition incorporates an index, additional restaurant chains (Shake Shack, In-N-Out, and Applebee’s), and up-to-date values for brands and restaurants.


There’s also guidance on setting personal targets for calories and fluids as well as tips on getting enough of key nutrients. At home or on the go, whether readers need help navigating grocery store aisles or fast-food menus, this handbook takes the work (and tech) out of eating right.
