This fully updated and revised second edition, part of the successful food Counter series, is the essential guide for all dieters.
An estimated 59 million Americans are following a low carbohydrate eating plan. Let the nutrition experts help you sort through the carbs that are best for you!
Carbs are blamed for everything from obesity and diabetes to heart disease and acne. Before writing them off completely, it's important to know that the kinds of carbs you eat, how much you eat, when you eat them, and what you eat them with, makes a huge difference. Nationally known nutritionists Natow and Heslin show you how to use the low carb trend to your advantage. Inside you'll find:
How different carbs—fiber, sugar and starch—affect your body differently
How to select a carbohydrate eating plan that is right for you
The difference between natural sugars and added sugars, how to recognize them, and why your body needs one and not the other
The Ultimate Carbohydrate Counter is your go-to guide to keeping an eye on your carb intake when you shop, eat out, or grab a quick snack.
