“Labels decoded. This remarkable book demystifies everything you’ve wanted to know about food labels but were afraid to ask. How you ever wondered whether those ridiculously expensive products are worth it, or how much protein or fiber you really need, or what ‘whole grain’ means? The answers are here. The details of your diet are laid out so clearly and elegantly by Taub-Dix, it’s amazing why such a complete, hands-on analysis didn’t happen long ago.”  — BRIAN WANSINK, PhD, author of Mindless Eating: why We Eat More Than We Think
