Great resource

Great resource for carbohydrate content of foods. Subgroups are sometimes a little difficult to distinguish from groups, but it is well worth the effort to figure it out.

Handiest little book around

I love this little book. Very well organized and easy to read. Dana has already figured the usable carbs for you. Just great.

Excellet Carb Counter

This is one of the best carb counters on the market. It is so easy to use, and lists every single food I have ever eaten, even the most popular restaurant foods. It is very well organized, making finding foods very quick. I just love the alphabetical listings instead of all those categories. I also found the foods to be listed in the serving size most commonly consumed. Plus there are additional serving size listings for items like flour and sugar that you would use in cooking/baking. I disagree with the bad reviews. For instance "potato" is right there, easy to find, in baked, boiled, etc. It lists the size of the potato in inches instead of saying 3 oz. Well how many of you have a scale with you to weigh your potato when you eat out? I would rather see the size, like 3 inch long by 2 inch round. Awesome book!


I don't know why so many people gave this book bad reviews. I am doing Atkins and this book has helped me tremendously. This book has everything under the sun, including different fresh vegetables, etc. to help you count your carbs even on products that don't have packaging with that information.

The best Carb Counter I've found yet!

If you are on any type of Lo-carb plan, you've got to get this book. Perfect small size but far more thorough than anything. She has even added the fast food menu items made lo-carb; for example if you order a sandwich at Wendy's and remove the ketchup and bread, how many calories, fat grams and carbs are left...this is fantastic for those of us that still like to know or have an idea on general calories we are consuming. I have the small carb counter that came w/the new Atkins book and that's fine, but this will replace it and stay in my purse. Highly recommend this!
