Top Customer Reviews
There are no listing for common grains like wheat, oats &, rye. There are many processed wheat products listed as well as obscure things. I could find quinoa, beaver, bear, & whale; but, no wheat.
The listing for beans contained only processed junk like canned baked beans, dips, refried stuff, etc. By looking up individual beans I could find some. Unfortunately, I found them to be of minimal use. There was either no listing for dried beans or if there was a listing it often did not have a fiber count. Initially I thought they were listing cooked dried beans to have no fiber. But, after comparing other entries I realized they were merely omitted.
There are a lot of processed foods in the book along with useless entries like whale. The thing I found really offensive is the fact that they list no less than 15 entries for water. I'm sorry, I think anyone purchasing such a book is intelligent enough to know that water from 15 sources is going to contain the same amount of calories, carbohydrates, fiber, & sugar ZERO!
It seems to me that a majority of this book was collected from package labels. Well, I can go online to one of the online shop at home services and collect package labels of products I'm interested in too. From what I understand they are not reliable as to amounts of fiber in products. I was expecting to get a comprehensive and realistic listing or real foods in this book and was sadly disappointed.
