Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter

(0 reviews)
$4.95 RRDi Affiliate Store
Purchase. Paperback. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter Paperback – December 10, 1996 • Kindle Edition $3.99 •
Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter has a slightly misleading name. While grams of carbohydrate are listed for various foods, there are also protein and fat grams listed for each entry. With more than 1,200 listings, including hundreds of brand-name products, this makes a handy, portable reference. It should be noted, however, that that the Gram Counter is really meant as a companion to Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution; the brief dietary information included in the introduction to the Gram Counter isn't of much use by itself.
n the six years since this book was first published, more and more people have embraced the idea of limiting carbohydrate intake for weight control—as well as overall good health. Numerous scientific studies have corroborated the logic of the Atkins philosophy. Meanwhile, as the twin epidemics of obesity and diabetes have picked up pace, mainstream health professionals are increasingly realizing that achieving a healthy weight is not just a matter of cutting back on fat and calories. There is a growing awareness that sugar, white flour, trans fats and the junk foods made with them are a large part of the problem.
To make this book more useful, we've made a host of improvements:
Use of a new software program
More data
More controlled carb foods
Other new products
More vegetables
More categories
New sections
This revised edition of Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Carb Counter is the perfect companion to the recently revised best-selling Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution, which reflects Dr. Atkins' latest thinking and current terminology.
From Publishers Weekly
This small-format companion book to Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution offers people a pocketsize guide to any of the four phases of the Atkins plan. Organized into food categories such as "Poultry" and "Beverages," the book gives the amount of carbs, net carbs, fiber, protein, fat and calorie counts for each item. Both generic and brand name foods are included. For example, there are nine listings for different types of roasted chicken and there are even more listings for frozen, skillet and potpies, including Banquet, Morton and Purdue. The dessert section has been expanded from earlier editions to include a range of ice cream and sorbet products, cakes and cookies, as well as snacks such as chips and peanuts. Newer products such as terra chips and soy crisps are included. Sufficient explanatory material is found in the "dining out" chapters, which cover both restaurants and fast food chains. Atkins also offers pointers such as "Don't torture yourself if you accidentally consume something that's been batter dipped or breaded. Remember it's only one meal."
