A couple years ago, my son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. This means we have to count carbs. The hospital recommended The CalorieKing book for counting carbs, and it really is a great book. The original book is a small paperback size, with print to match. It's OK with my reading glasses, but I was overjoyed to find that they publish a larger print edition, also.

This is a review of the 2014 Larger Print Edition. The Larger Print Edition isn't the LARGE print that you see in a large-print novel. But it is LARGER print, and I really appreciate it. The size of the larger print book itself is a little bigger than the regular CalorieKing edition, but it's still paperback book size. Easy to store in a purse or glove compartment or backpack.
size regular print 6 7/8 " x 4 1/4 "
size Larger Print 7 1/4 " x 5 1/4 "
Both books are the same thickness, a shade over 1/2"

CalorieKing deserves it's reputation for thoroughness. The main reason you'd need updated editions of it is if you eat out a lot. It can be very difficult to estimate carbs in restaurant food. Each year's updated menus of the larger restaurant chains are welcome. But as far as grocery food, the apple and broccoli carb counts won't change from year to year, and packaged groceries will always have a label telling, among other things, how many carbs per serving.

To give you an example of what a lifesaver CalorieKing is, I took a trip last year with my son, traveling by air. It was fantastic to just look in this book and total the carbs as he ordered a meal from Arby's in the airport food court. It couldn't have made it easier!

If you are watching what you eat (and when), this book is really nice to carry with you. It's informative and easy to use, and has a really good restaurant section. Helps to keep you on track.

The CalorieKing Counter was recommended by our doctor as a quick reference guide for tracking calories, fats and carbohydrates. The first 22 pages are filled with information on weight control, BMI, portion control, reducing sugar, exercise, keeping a food journal and a diabetes guide. There is also a section on cholesterol, fiber, protein, salt/sodium and alcohol.

With a listing of over 200 fast food chains, you should be able to track anything you eat away from home but be prepared to be shocked by the numbers. We don't normally eat fast food but on occasion have gone to the "5 Guys" burger place and it was quite an eye opener as to the calories, fats and carbohydrates consumed in one small burger. An e-book is available for your Kindle.

I specifically checked the online version of Calorie King before buying. The online version provides calories, protein, fat, and carbs. The ebook only provides fats and carbs. Totally useless. Will be deleting and cautious about any ebook in the future. Wish I could give 0 stars

Love this pocket-sized reference. As a registered dietitian, I recommend this is a great tool for anyone but especially for those who are trying to manage their weight, diabetes, and many other chronic conditions! It is a great tool to help make better food choices.

This little book has helped me through the years to lose weight. This last time I lost 15 pounds within a month and a half just by watching carbs, calories & fat! You would not BELIEVE what some of restaurants have in the menu, makes you think twice about eating out!!!! A MUST for any trying to lose weight, eat better or just trying to figure out how it all goes together!
