Ever find yourself debating whether or not to buy just one bag of chips? Or grab a little candy bar for the road? Consider this: what if the nutritional labels on your favorite foods spelled out exactly what you'd have to do to burn those calories?
Well, nutrition and public health advocate, Charles Stuart Platkin's new book, THE DIET DETECTIVE'S COUNT DOWN
, is the first of its kind that translates food into exercise, giving readers a tool for deciding what a calorie means and which calories are worth it. THE DIET DETECTIVE'S COUNT DOWN
lists more that 7,500 foods with exercise equivalents in minutes calculated using six forms of activity: WALKING, RUNNING, BIKING, SWIMMING, YOGA, AND DANCING. All this information is listed in an easy to view table format. The table also includes calories, fat and carbohydrates.
This is no ordinary diet book, it is a food fact bible giving readers tasty nuggets of information that make them think before they eat. Translating food into calorie counts isn't enough -- translating calorie counts into exercises makes clear the consequence each bite has on the waistline!
