The Carbs & Cals Pocket Counter is the ultimate visual carbohydrate and calorie counter!

Small enough to fit into a pocket or handbag, this highly visual easy-to-use book contains over 750 photos of popular food and drink items, with the calorie and nutrient values clearly displayed in colour-coded tabs around each photo.

The 210 pages of photographs are arranged into 26 colour-coded sections: Biscuits & Crackers, Bread, Breakfast, Cakes & Bakery, Cheese, Desserts, Drinks, Eggs, Fruit, Gluten Free, Meals, Meal Accompaniments, Meat, Chicken & Fish, Milk & Cream, Nuts & Seeds, Pasta & Noodles, Potatoes & Tubers, Rice & Grains, Sandwiches, Snacks & Confectionery, Soup, Spreads & Sauces, Takeaways, Vegetables & Pulses, Vegetarian Alternatives, Yogurt.

There is 1 portion photo for each food, with the prepared/cooked weight shown below each photo. Each fruit and vegetable portion size that makes up one of the recommended 5-a-day is clearly indicated by a yellow ring around the photo. In the Drinks section, the number of units in each alcoholic drink has also been included to help users keep track of their alcohol consumption.

The Carbs & Cals Pocket Counter is the ideal support tool for weight management, portion control and healthy eating on the move. For people with diabetes, it can also provide helpful guidance with carbohydrate counting.

The book is in association with Diabetes UK.

Review:

"So convenient to carry in my bag and very easy to identify the food I am about to eat and how many carbs it has." "Great publication, which is really going to help me lose some weight." "Having had use of the full size book at home, I really needed a pocket size book to take on holiday and this certainly lived up to expectations." "I would recommend this valuable little booklet to anyone who needs to count carbs, cals and fat content of foods." "This book is a must for anyone who is diabetic, or if you are just watching your weight. Fantastic for counting calories and carbs." "We bought this as my 11yr old is diabetic. We already have the larger version of this book but this size has enabled it to travel in my daughter's "Frog Bag" (Diabetes bag) and has really helped her to engage in carb counting." "Well worth it. I have been on a DAFNE Course and these books supplement the help already received." "Almost as good as its big brother but easier to carry about." "This is a handy wee book for my son's diabetes bag. Useful for carb counting when out and about." "Very good book for diabetics who are on insulin and having difficulties in carbs counting in relation to the correct dose of insulin." --Amazon reviews
