Calorie counting is the foundation of most diets. Despite Food Standards Agency legislation and nutritional labelling, dietary claims on food can often be confusing or misleading. Calorie Counter is an A-Z guide providing a clear and accurate breakdown of nutritional information in more than 1,900 favourite foods. Nutritional facts are presented in easy-to-read tables and the book comes in a handy pocket format.
