I’ve recently purchased The Ultimate Carbohydrate Counter. I was hoping it would be an easy reference in finding accurate Carbohydrates for any food. Well, I have tried and tried to use this book and can’t seem to find any semblance or order in your book. I look up pears under fruit, fresh fruit, canned fruit, mixed fruit and it’s just not to be found. ANYTHING I look up in not in any sort of alphabetical order or food group. I’m very disappointed I spent money on this book and hope you can send me an explanation on “How to Use The Ultimate Carbohydrate Counter. It’s just no a good reference. I was going to sign up via Facebook but I really don’t want to give you bad comments about your books. Please answer this message. Thanks.

Sorry to hear that your are frustrated, let’s see if I can help. Have you looked at Using Your Ultimate Carbohydrate Counter (page 46) which gives you a blueprint on the organization for the book. For each category nonbranded (generic) foods are listed first, followed by brand names. If the category is large enough the groups may be subdivided by canned, fresh, frozen and ready-to-eat. Using the example you gave, Pear would have its own category (pages 316-317) subdivided into canned, dried and fresh. The Fruit Mixed category (page 227-228) is meant for fruit items containing more than one fruit. At the top of the category it provides a footnote (see also individual names). In Part Two of the book you will find restaurant chains listed in alphabetical order. Hope this provides some assistance in navigation. If you need further help, just let me know.
