I meant to mention that if there is a book that I could buy telling the nutritional values of various foods, I would be willing to buy it. If there were one that you recommend, I would appreciate your advice.
Why don’t you look at Edmund’s Food Ratings For Dieters that I wrote? Basically, it rates 900 foods on how appropriate or not they are for persons who want to lose weight. Each food’s nutritional analysis is also listed with the ratings.
