I love love love the concept of knowing "how long would I have to workout for if ate this?" However I live in Asia and found the specificity of the never ending list of american branded items to be tedious and confusing at times. Under "cheeses" you will see no name mozzarella, 1 cup, x amount of calories, x amount of walking required to burn off etc etc(that, I call useful info) but then further down he lists the branded mozarellas but doesn't keep the measurements consistent so in the end you are still left scratching your head about which cheese is the best calorific "deal"... Or most "splurgeworthy"as he puts it. It almost makes me wonder if he used different measurements with certain brands to influence readers into thinking those brands are better calorific "deals" since some readers are maybe too lazy to do the measurement equivalent math in order to figure out just how many calories that brand of cheese would be if it were one cup as opposed to some tiny amount like a tbspn or tspn... Or 1 oz or 15 ml ... I would have appreciated him keeping the measurements for like items similar in their categories, relative to how much of that item people generally eat. Also, it is the norm in America for branded products to say how many calories they are so I don't understand the need for this book to go into so much depth when it comes to translating the calorie amounts into exercise times, for sooooooo many branded items. Why not just give us a simple formula like if you weigh about 155 pounds and eat 100 calories it will take you half an hour of brisk walking to burn it off? That is about the long and short of what I got from this book. Besides I don't weigh 155 pounds I weigh 125 so now I have to do the math to figure out a rough equivalent for myself...EVERY time I look at one of the items in this 7500item long list... If at least one page of this immense book had have been dedicated to spelling out to people the rough equivalents for those of different weights I think that would have increased the value of this book at least double fold. Also, I find it ironic that anyone so health conscious as to be going the extra mile of counting calories would even care to know the difference in calorific value between a bigmac or a whopper... My view is just eat real food if you want to stay healthy or lose weight, not junk food! I rarely eat out and even when I do, like I say, I am not in America so a lot of these items I will never need to look up. I would have appreciated a list of more "raw" or basic food items and their values or exercise time translations rather than brand or chain specific menu items. Or at least keep to the more mainstream international chains like McDonald's or Starbucks. Chains that actually exist in other countries. Krispy kremes are no where to be found anywhere in Asia as far as i can tell and even if I were living where there was a Krispy kremes I would not be caught dead stuffing my face and at the same time accessing a health manual trying to figure out how eating that can be classified a healthy decision, trying to fit it into my calorie plan for the day....! I also have to say I was sad that in the kindle version I couldn't highlight or do anything to the specific items in the lists. I would have liked to be able to highlight the items I thought were good "calorie deals". Now all I have is page after page of black and white listing.

This book is VERY informative. I'm not even on a diet, but I use it to make wise food choices. I was astounded at the nutrition facts for many common foods, especially beef. McDonald's salads with dressing are loaded with fat! Though Wendy's chili is fairly low in fat. And now I see what I'm actually working off the calories for on my treadmill, so it's harder to let myself quit after only a 15 minute workout. Exercise just isn't as satisfying if I know I've only worked off half of the milkshake I had at lunch.

Very useful book to have if you don't want to count calories but instead see what you need to do in order to burn off that donut.

helpful book ! knowing how much I need to exercise to burn something ... makes me think twice ! unique spin on a plan, but effective !!

This book helped to feel more comfortable about eating knowing what activity is required to burn off the food. It is not designed to find a short cut to losing weight, but it does show you how to eat sensible and know how much of a certain activity will be needed to burn off calories. This is a good way to get in your mind that it is okay to eat certain things, just be prepared to work it off. By telling you which activities will burn how many calories, it helps to plan workouts to be more effective. Some common food items were missing, but all in all it was helpful.
Mr.Champions
I wasn't sure about this book, but I was intrigued enough to try it. I was actually surprised to find out how much activity some foods would require to burn off. This book was helpful in inspiring me to make better nutritional choices based on how long I would have to exercise to burn it off. Give it a look if you are like me and need a certain motivation.
