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.
