Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0956443052, Paperback)

Carbs & Cals is an easy-to-understand visual guide to carbohydrate and calorie counting in diabetes management. It contains over 1,200 photos of popular UK food & drink items, with the carbohydrate & calorie values clearly displayed above each photo. The 13-page introduction to the book explains the effect of carbohydrate on blood sugar levels and explores the amount of calories we need in our diet, giving practical tips on how to use the book for diabetes control and weight management. The 217 pages of photographs are arranged into 15 colour-coded sections: Biscuits & Crackers, Bread, Breakfast, Cakes & Bakery, Desserts, Drinks, Fruit, Meals, Meal Accompaniments, Meat & Fish Products, Potatoes, Rice, Pasta & Grains, Snacks & Confectionery, Take-away Food, and Vegetables & Pulses. There are up to 6 different portion photos for each food, with their corresponding carbohydrate and calorie values displayed above each photo. This provides users with an easy comparison to the food on their plate and a helpful guide to the carbohydrate and calories they are consuming. The prepared/cooked weight is also shown below each photo. Carbohydrate counting is an important part of diabetes management, particularly for Type 1 diabetes, and this book is an invaluable support tool for anyone engaged in this process. For people with Type 2 diabetes or those trying to lose weight, Carbs & Cals vastly simplifies the calorie counting process. It takes out the guesswork and time spent weighing food by showing the calorie content in each food photograph. This allows the user to make choices on how to reduce calories and fat intake by choosing a smaller portion or swapping a food item that is high in calories for a healthier option. The book is in association with Diabetes UK.
