Well, nutrition and public health advocate, Charles Stuart Platkin's new book, The Diet Detective's Count Down, on shelves in January 2007, 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! The Diet Detective's Count Down lets readers make informed decisions on all the foods they love and eat.
