There is no other food and drink portion guide like “this=that”. It includes more than 400 life-size photos shown as “energy equals” for easy comparison.
In total, about 500 foods and drinks are featured. All unbranded so that means you don't have to be locked in to buying a certain brand name.
You can quickly see which foods to have more or less of for better health and body shape. The result is a quick no-fuss approach to great nutrition by enjoying everyday foods. Trudy won the President's Award for Innovation in 2005 for this book's unique approach. It's been updated and expanded many times since then.
Featured on TV, in magazines and newspapers.
Everyday foods. Your choice. Your health. We photographed real foods without any packaging or branding. The images in this book are timeless. This guide has stood the test of time since being originally published in 2004 and this new edition will last well into the future as well. That shows how useful and sensible it is. Suitable for teens through to adults - boys and girls, men and women.
Each book is packaged in a purpose-built cardboard box for protection in the post. The book is weighty and when packed weighs close to 1.2 kg (2.6 lbs).
