From the Back Cover

Fad diets. Crash diets. Get-thin-quick schemes. Let’s face it—none of these really works. What you weigh is as simple as this: calories in, calories out.

Based on a 1,200-calorie-a-day diet, Knack Calorie Counter Cookbook features 350 easy, tasty, mix-and-match recipes that make it easier than ever to map out meals for a day, a week, or a month—recipes for every occasion, from super suppers to sensible (but still super) snacks.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Disappointed that the seller had removed the book from the NYC public library :( at least so the sticker says it's their property. Not sure if it was a "boo sale" or what but it was once their property. Am I purchasing stolen property? Hence the one star.

As to content. The calories aren't necessarily low in fat by any means,….I guess they are just "counted" as it says in the title. Not healthy or low fat. SOme are, some are questionable to say the least.
