IS FAT GOOD FOR YOU? IS FAT BAD?

SHOULD YOU BE EATING MORE, OR LESS?

Not all fats are created equal -- there are the good, the bad, and the worst. Two nationally recognized nutrition experts give you up-to-date information about fats and healthy eating so you can reduce your risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, and even dementia. In this easy-to-use counter, you'll find:

  • An explanation of the role of fats in our diets

  • Saturated fat counts -- so you can avoid this major artery-clogging culprit

  • New and expanded food categories -- including low fat, low carb, high protein, and nutritionally enhanced foods

  • More listings than ever before for restaurant chains and take-out foods

  • Hot-off-the-press news on trans fats, food labels, and much more.

The Fat Counter is your go-to guide for choosing healthy fats when you shop, eat out, or grab a quick snack.
