My 2nd copy of this book!
on August 2, 2012
I've purchased a previous edition of this book in paper and just bought the new edition for Kindle. The information is primarily the carb counts of basic foods, like an ounce of most breads is 1 carb exchange, how many cups or ounces of a certain fruit make 1 carb exchange. This is what I use at home on a daily basis in getting portion sizes correct. The paper edition is small enough to fit in a purse or shirt pocket and because it's so small it's more likely to be brought than a big book. We've previously purchased a bigger book that lists nutritional info for popular menu items at specific restaurants and it sits at home.
I would rate the paper version 5 stars, but subtracted 1 star on the Kindle edition I just bought due to formatting. Some of the tables are sideways in the book. With a paper book, you just turn it, but on my tablet when I turn it to view the page right side up, it rotates and remains sideways. Annoying, but I would have still bought it because I like this tiny book and can find what I'm looking for quickly.
