Synopsis
Publisher:
  How much do you know about the food you eat?  If you're serious about good eating, it's essential that you have the most up-to-date, comprehensive nutritional reference available. And whether you're under a doctor's supervision or just trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can depend on Corinne T. Netzer, the bestselling expert who sets the standard against which all others are measured, with the latest, most accurate nutritional information available. 
A
. Orca's Comments:   I've used this reference in the past.  It's a little overwhelming at first, but it's easier than writing down all the food label information.  Be aware, though, that the labels and the book don't always agree absolutely.  It's not that one is wrong and one is right, just that they use different methods of rounding figures.  Highly recommended in the Healthy Living message board.

Pub. Date: February 1993

 

Synopsis
As the authors of the phenomenally successful Carbohydrate Addict's Diet know, losing weight is hard work. Even harder, however, is keeping the weight off--sticking to the new patterns of eating necessary for success. Now Drs. Heller and Heller provide the additional support that every carbohydrate addict needs to succeed.
A. Orca's Comments:   Both of the authors have been through the weight woes, and the early part of the book does get a bit sugary.  Still, I found it quite heartening.  The book provides exercises to help people identify what and when they crave, and to improve self-image. 
Carbohydrate Addict's Lifespan Program: A Personalized Plan for Becoming Slim, Fit, and Healthy in Your 40s, 50s, 60s, and Beyond, Richard Heller and Rachael F. Heller

Publisher: NAL/Dutton
Pub. Date: December 1997
Synopsis
Millions of maturing Americans face increasing weight levels and failing health, although they eat no more than they did when they were younger. Drawing from their breakthrough research into the carbohydrate-insulin connection to excess weight and poor health, Drs. Richard and Rachael Heller have created a comprehensive, straightforward program for getting trim and staying vigorous through the best years of life. 496 pp. Author publicity. 75,000 print.  A. Orca's Comments:  I haven't looked at this book yet, but I include it here because I've seen very little aimed at those of us who are beyond 30-something and because I found the Heller's workbook (above) promising.
