Ever wonder how many calories are in those super-sized muffins or bagels? Which cereal has the most fiber? Whether fast food "value" meals really are a nutritional value or a nutritional disaster? HealthCheques: Carbohydrate, Fat & Calorie Guide is the reference to use to determine the best food choices at home, while eating on the run or dining out. It gives eight nutrient values--calories, carbohydrate, protein, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium and fiber--of 3,000 foods and includes carb choices! Foods in this Guide are grouped into easy-to-find categories and then listed alphabetically. Handy tips and hints show you how to * estimate your daily caloric goal in three easy steps, * determine the number of carbohydrate grams or choices that's right for you and * figure out the amount of fat that's O.K. to eat by various calorie levels. Charts show the number of calories used during 30 minutes of various activities and desirable levels for blood pressure, cholesterol, HDL, LDL, and triglycerides. Record-keeping pages are included to track these blood lipids and blood pressure as well as a medication/supplement log. This handy Guide is pocket-sized so it can go anywhere you go....fits neatly into a pocket, purse, glove compartment or desk drawer.
