I've read all the comments made about this book and would like to offer the following. This booklet is not meant to be used to "follow" the diet. It is a companion to The New Diet Revolution which is essential reading for anyone on this diet. I have been on it for several weeks now and I'm at the "maintenance" stage. For those of you who are looking up wine in the Carb Counter booklet, it is not listed simply because wine is made with grapes (the highest sugar content fruit) and sugar isn't allowed on this diet.

O.K if your reading my review then we've both got problems, or do we. Alas here goes. I've been doing Dr Atkins for four weeks now. All I can say is it's working for me. I don't you and like you I was looking answers, I think I've found mine. I nrver thought I was vain in the sence that it was a problem for me, anyway it was. I'm 37 years old and for the first in my life I feel it. I dislike exercise and all that goes with it,(although I don't think I'm lasy). So here I am wrighting to you, yes you, and why? well I don't know but alas I am. O.K. I havn't been following it as close as i should have, but I've been doing it for four weeks now and I feel great, Plus I think I look alot better than I did. You and I have being fighting this weight crap for long enough. So here's the deal, loose for whatever reason you want (I don't care, you know I don't) just do it. Do it for yourself. I did (for a change) and I feel great don't look to bad either. I get so sick of these grt slim quick adds, pure crap. I may never meet you so I have nothing to gain by whatever do, So don't do it for me, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, wife or husband, do it for for you. Thats is. Just shut up and dance. All the Best. Love Ya Ray

While I cannot comment on the diet itself, the book leaves much to be desired with respect to how it is presented. It is incomplete. Such an example is that there is no listing for the grams of carbohydrates in pasta, which is one of the most widely celebrated carbohydrate foods. Yet there is a listing of the carbohydrates in Dandelions. It is hard to really get to an understanding of what the no no's are...just a few examples. The charts and diagrams are not presented in a clear way, and speak more of the philosophy of the diet, rather than the instruction on how to run it. It also failed to address the common person. There are many exotic foods listed; but not even a mention of whether a glass of wine is acceptable and if so, under what terms. I'm sure that the diet has good merit, but somebody else should have written it.

Please note that I have NOT read this book, so read this review with that in mind - I wanted to suggest an alternative, and a rating is demanded, so I put it at 5. Before buying this book, which appears to have a comparatively limited number of foods listed, please take a look at "The Complete Book of Food Counts" by Corinne Netzer. I *have* read this book and am very impressed. It gives the protein, carbs, fat and calories of over 12,000 foods, including nearly everything you're likely to encounter in a market, by brand name, and also fast food like Jack in the Box, Kentucky Fried Chicken etc. It's a great help in evaluating an unfamiliar food choice, particularly in that it can give an accurate measure of carbs instead of rounding to the nearest one for a "serving" as is done on packages.

I started the Atkins diet on my own, based on the guiding principles described on the book "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution". I have steadily and comfortably reduced inches off my waist by using the "Dr. Atkins' New Carbohydrate Gram Counter" as a guide to food selection. If it were not for its reduced, concise listing of foods (carbs, proteins, fat) I could not have understood the method I was supposed to follow to achieve weight loss. It is not a comprehensive guide, so don't even think of it as the ultimate compilation of your diet choices. Yet, its tiny size made it perfect to carry it in a handbag, in a glove compartment, every time I need help to navigate through the supermarket maze in search for low-carb foods, and yes, to elegantly cover my tracks when I cheated the diet.

Dr. Atkins' carbohydrate counter is a very small subset of the available carbohydrate information available, somewhat similar to a quick reference guide in other fields: Some information, but maybe not quite what is being sought. The organization of the book, into lists of beverages, or grains and breads, or nuts and seeds, milk and dairy, etc., makes it a bit more difficult to look up items -- why not just use the alphabet? I looked up wine -- not an umpopular item in this age -- and it was not listed. The most positive thing I can say about this book is that its small size (less that a quarter inch thick and somewhat smaller than a typical paperback) makes it a good purse or pocket book; just don't expect encyclopedic information from it.

As the author of the first "insulin-conscious" gourmet cookbook ("The Gourmet Prescription: High Flavor Recipes for Lower Carbohydrate Diets"), I'm 100% behind the carbohydrate information explosion. The serious consequences of our 10-year carbohydrate orgy (epidemics of obesity, cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes), make this book a necessary resource. A great life, however, requires more than a gram counter. We need FLAVOR as well as information-- and that's where "The Gourmet Prescription" comes in. All of the recipes are about intensifying flavor as well as lowering carbohydrates. It's a food lover's antidote to our carbohydrate binge and a great companion to any lower carbohydrate diet.

Despite complaints that the book is small, I found that it was very helpful to be able to carry the book with me and refer to it whenever needed. A 500-page tome would be a little bothersome when sitting at a table in a restaurant...I would definitely recommend this book as a companion to the "New Diet Revolution" book, and strongly urge anyone thinking about starting the Induction Diet for the first time to purchase the "New Carbohydrate Gram Counter" before they start. Why 4 stars instead of 5? A hard cover or spiral bound cover, and laminated pages, would make it easier to carry the book in purse or briefcase and use it in restaurants without worrying about ruining it.

I purchased the "companion" book(let) to Dr. Atkins New Diet Revolution . I was extremely disappointed when I saw it resembled not much more that the little booklets sold near the grocery store checkout area (i.e. Calory Counters, Names for Babies, etc.).
The booklet itself isn't a bad little booklet, which contains carbohydrate grams, protein grams and fat grams for a lot of foods, but it's only 95 pages long, each page about 4" by 5", and I've seen much larger, pocketbook size carbohydrate counter books available for a lower price. I just don't think it was worth it.

This should only be sold in the supermarket check-out lanes for 99¢, like other mini-books. You can tell just as much from reading the nutrition labels on the products that you buy. Some of the information doesn't seem to agree with that on the packages themselves. Which should I believe? Just using it is a "guide" I guess, then it's useful, but I wouldn't know if I'd feel 100% confident in it's usage for a complete detailed factual information. It's easy to follow and eas to find the item you may be looking for, but there is alot of of "staple" foods that isn't listed.
