A year 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.

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!

Though we use this book for carb counting, for each item you are given three values: the total calories, the total grams of fat, and the total grams of carbohydrates.

I really do like the Calorie King Calorie Fat and Carbohydrate Counters. I buy one every year. The books hold up pretty well over a year's use; but they are pretty compact/small. If you have limited pocket or purse space, you may still want to opt for the smaller edition. When I bought my 2013 copy, I opted to purchase the larger print edition. I'm young and have good sight, but I definitely appreciate how easy it is to read. The books are colorful and a pleasure to use daily.

My gripes concerning these books are specific to me and not the fault of the books. I'm still going to mention them because I know that there are other people out there who are following a similar eating plan. There may be a better counter for low-carb eaters on the market. Most of the alternatives to The Calorie King books that I have looked at are not very current, have older copyright dates and so forth. There are probably more comprehensive phone applications or software on the market that may be more helpful.

I have been a low-carb eater for many years. The Calorie King books list calories, fat and carbs but do not list the fiber on most of the items. There is a section in the back of the books which does give a small, incomplete listing of protein and fiber. They lack the majority of fiber listings and won't really assist a person in determining "net" carbs. You must still do your homework. These books would be a million pages long if it broke down every ingredient in a fast food menu item. It's just not realistic.

i.e. When eating at a fast food stop, I always pull the buns off of the burgers. One venue lists a burger as having 34 grams of carbs. I have to guess that the vast majority of the carbs in the burger are due to the bun. A packet of ketchup has 3 grams....

For people with diabetis like me this is the best friend you can have.
Also if you want to diet this is for you for counting those calories.

Small and concise and easy to find things. I couldn't find avocado under veggies and looked in the index and found it under fruits - who knew! My one complaint is that it does not show the fiber numbers which can be misleading if you are watching carbs (because net carbs = carbs minus fiber I think) but other than that it is very good and convenient.

I don't eat fast food nor do I eat out a lot. I was hoping for a calorie counter that was for real food. This covers fast food places, restaurants and a ton of things I wouldn't put in my body.

As a diabetic, counting carbs is crucial and this helps greatly. It was recommended to me by a nutritionist. The print is rather small.
