12 Calories for a Teaspoon of Nutmeg!, December 4, 2002
Reviewer: A.Trendl HungarianBookstore.com "Supporting Freedom: HungarianBookstore.com/DanishMuslimCartoons.htm" (Glen Ellyn, IL USA)

What a gem "The Doctors Pocket Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter" is! This purse-sized book puts honesty into eating.

Essentially, it is a group of lists. You'll see the product name, and in three columns to the right of it, how many calories, fat and carbohydrates. The strength resides in its thoroughness. It seem as if the editors came in my neighborhood grocery store and took notes, cataloguing these stats from every item. There is even a calorie count for spices (a teaspoon of nutmeg has 12 calories!), as well as alcohol (you'll find your favorites brands, plus a general list).

There is a section on restaurants in general. Presuming, for example, red beans and rice is pretty much the same anywhere, we learn we'll be eating about 280 calories.

Disheartening is the restaurant chain section, from Applebee's to Zantiago. I was pleased to see how Boston Market did, but I see the stuffing and gravy on their turkey meal I love costs me an additional 430 calories.

There are some nutritional sections, explaining the fundamentals of a good diet, what fiber is all about and some discussion of sodium.

It is all very handy, and so I fully recommend "The Doctors Pocket Calorie, Fat & Carbohydrate Counter."

Extremely useful for someone starting a low fat or low carb diet, especially someone who eats out a lot.
