I do like the book and refer to it very often.
CH
This would be more helpful if there was an index of the alphabet which would take me to that section of the the book with the letter of the food I was looking for.
Cyn
It clearly lists the vitamin K levels in foods so that I can be careful how much I eat.

This book arrived in great shape. I will be on blood thinner medication for the rest of my life. Since Vitamin K tends to thicken the blood and is found in so many foods I needed a guide to keep track of how much Vitamin K I consume. It would be nice if companys put vitamin K levels on their products along with the other information they provide. Since they don't I am now able to find out by using this book. It covers just about everything in the food and beverage catagories. It has made my life a lot easier now that I can plan my meals so my intake of vitamin K stays within a safe range.

I bought the Kindle version. It is true that the foods are listed alphabetically with Vit K amounts. This would be more helpful if there was an index of the alphabet which would take me to that section of the the book with the letter of the food I was looking for. Example: If I wanted to look up green tea, I could pick "G" in the index. This would much more effective than scrolling through pages and pages to get to green tea.

The index could be arranged as follows:
A-Ad
Ad-Am
Am-As
As-Az

And so forth. As it stands now, I wish I had not bought the Kindle version.
Good idea. Bad presentation for immediate reference when out and about.Vitamin K Levels in Common Foods

I would have liked just a list in alphabetical order, it seems to jump around. Doesn't have an index page.

As a new Coumadin user I did find the vitamin K levels lists very informative. I would suggest NOT buying the Kindle version as it is extremely tedious to try and find a specific food by flipping endlessly through the pages or trying to guess the page numbers to get close to the right place in the alphabetical list. A lesson for me, don't buy reference materials on e-readers.

I love all sorts of dark green veggies Kale, etc. I found a really good recipe from New Season's store, but boy it spiked my vit k, I am on coumiden, and that is one of the highest vit k, that I should'nt eat...this book is very helpful, sort of depressing too.....I loved spinach, asparagus, broccoli, I can eat small amounts just not lots, like I used to do.

The first part of this book is very helpful. A large number of foods are listed alphabetically. The second part of the book is not so helpful; it lists foods in order of how much Vitamin K is in them. It would be better for the first part of the book to be expanded, and the second part could be eliminated.

I bought this for a friend who needs to keep track of Vitamin K. She can now look foods up at home or take the book with her to the store. She doesn't have a computer so she can't go online to find the information she needs. This has been very helpful for her.

not enough foods listed. Weighting all foods instead of 1/8 of a cantelope, or 1/2 cup of a food or 3" diameter. The best I can say is it was better than no book at all.

More About the Author

Timothy S. Harlan, MD, aka Dr. Gourmet, is Medical Director at the Tulane University School of Medicine and a chef, professor, and Emmy-winning television personality. He lives in New Orleans.
A practicing, board-certified Internist, Dr. Tim's love of food preparation began as a teenager working in the restaurant business. Starting as a dishwasher, he worked his way up to managing his first restaurant by the age of eighteen and at age twenty-two opened his own restaurant: a small French bistro.

Three years operating Le Petit Café--creating menus, being a chef and teaching cooking classes--were challenging and creative. Closing the restaurant to return to school was an important turning point. Dr. Harlan originally intended to pursue a degree in hotel and restaurant management, but events led him toward medicine and the decision to become a physician.


After finishing an undergraduate degree in anthropology and biology, Dr. Harlan went on to study at Emory University School of Medicine. Working as a caterer throughout school, he continued to be involved with food and cooking but noticed a lack of knowledge in the medical field about eating healthy and eating well. Neither patients nor health care providers understood much about a healthful diet. Patients, it seemed, were usually told not what they could eat but, rather, what they could not eat.

In medical school, Dr. Harlan wrote It's Heartly Fare, a book best characterized as a food manual for patients with cardiovascular disease. He has published other books including, Hand on Heat: A Perfectly Ordinary Cookbook and The Dr. Gourmet Diet for Coumadin Users.


He is publisher and editor of the popular web site DrGourmet.com.

Dr. Gourmet has been an on air consultant to the TV Food Network show Cooking Thin and a host on the DIY network show AskDIY. In 2002 The Dr. Gourmet Show, which aired on regional public television, won an Emmy® award.
