Diet trends come and go – but one thing is certain – calories count!

Wherever you turn people are talking about calories.

Eat too many and you gain.

Eat too few and you lose.

Move and you burn calories faster and lose weight quicker.

The Calorie Counter, 6h Edition is the most comprehensive calorie counter and the least expensive, most effective, diet book in the marketplace.

 – Calorie counts for more than 20,000 foods
– Expanded categories with new and revised generic foods
– Over 900 take-out foods
– 112 regional and national restaurant chains listed with over 8700 menu choices
– Introductory text expanded, revised and updated – with a new section on helping dieters handled tough problems – Oops! What Now? Taking Charge In Tough Situations

Everyone needs this book – in the last decade Americans have gained a total of more than 1 billion pounds — 68 % weigh too much.

The most successful diet in the US today is what people call “my own diet.”

A decisive 2012 research study out of Harvard (noted in the book) showed once again that the composition of the diet (low carb, high carb, high protein, low fat or high fat) is not the key to weight loss and weight maintenance – it is the amount of calories eaten that counts!
