I've had earlier publications of this book, and revised copies, for at least 10 years, probably more! It's my fat gram bible. I kept track of my fat gram intate for the RECOMMENDED 21 days. I lost 8 lbs! And I've kept it off, which keeps me at my ideal weight. When I stray and add a few pounds, I go right back to this book. In 21 days -- one day at a time -- you break most addictive cycles. Buy it. Do it. Stick with it.
It is not very comprehensive and the restaurants listed are only for fast food which is not where you want to eat if your diabetic. Needs a few more of the larger chain dining restaurants.
