The secret to lifelong weight control and overall health is not just watching calories. The key is limiting fat. But not all calories are created equal: when it comes to your weight, cholesterol levels, and risk for disease, the fat calories in ice cream are more of a threat than the calories in broccoli.

Now two nationally recognized nutrition experts give you the most important, up-to-date information you need to avoid excess fat and reduce your risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, some types of cancer, high blood pressure, and other health problems.

In this revised counter, which "Fitness" magazine calls "an excellent investment," Annette B. Natow and Jo-Ann Heslin include:

saturated fat counts -- saturated fat is a major risk factor in heart disease and cancer

more than 22,000 entries, and more food categories than ever before -- including vegetarian, lowfat, nonfat, and nutritionally enhanced foods

more listings for restaurant chains and take-out foods

the latest news on fat substitutes.
