I HAVE FOUND A GREAT REFERENCE BOOK FOR DIABETICS, THEIR FAMILIES AND EVEN FOR PRACTITIONERS. IT IS TITLED " CALORIE KING". THE COVER PRICE IS $6.95 AND IT GIVES CARBS AND CALORIES FOR HOME COOKED FOODS, PREPARED FOODS, FROZEN FOODS AND EVEN FOR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES BY POTION OR SIZE. IT IS VERY EASY TO REFERENCE AND TAKES THE GUESSWORK OUT OF COOKING AND EATING AT HOME OR OUT.

Calorie King is one of the membership's favorite reference. I hear it pop up all the time. Glad to know you have found it.

Thanks Mike! I have heard a lot about the calorie king products and appreciate you sharing this resource with us. There are many types of books like this which help with the planning of menus, meals, and dining out options. The key is to follow the portion sizes because so often we tend to sneak a little more on our plates than the recommended sizes (food scales are awesome) but forget to do the math with our calculations. Even though I am not smarter than a fifth grader, I am trying to follow serving sizes a lot closer these days. The books like Calorie King are so much easier to use than standing in the lines at the supermarket to do the research. TIP: Quite often you can find these products on Ebay, Half, Amazon and other sites for less than cover price. Welcome to our community! Keep the tips coming. We're all in this together!!!
