Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0440222893, Mass Market Paperback)If you're on a calorie-counting diet or just trying to use good sense when choosing foods, you'll find The Brand-Name Calorie Counter a helpful shopping companion. This book has 444 pages of food items by category and brand name, so you can compare several brands of the same item. You discover, for example, that all banana nut muffins are not the same: Awrey's Grande has 400 calories, while a Tastykake Family has 170. Don't worry about not finding the item or brand you seek--the listings are long and comprehensive. There are 4 pages of frozen pizza, 16 pages of breakfast foods, and 11 pages of ice cream. You'll even find 10 brands of chewing gum!
The food chain/restaurant section is equally helpful. Did you know that Burger King's Croissan'wich with sausage, egg, and cheese has 600 calories, the same as a double cheeseburger? Would you guess that Denny's All-American Slam breakfast has 1,028 calories, and the biscuit with sausage gravy alone has 570? Compare that with the Jack-in-the-Box chicken fajita pita at 290. You can even count the calories of Sizzler salad bar items, from alfalfa sprouts (2 calories for one-quarter cup) to zucchini (5 calories for one-quarter cup). --Joan Price
