Why Calories Count does a nice job of sorting out a lot of the misinformation about dieting and nutrition. The book also examines the science, politics, and marketing behind that misinformation. It's not that there's anything groundbreaking here - if you've taken a nutrition course or done some research on your own, a lot of this is familiar. Nestle and Nesheim state in the introduction that this is not a diet book, and it's not. Rather than provide strict guidelines for what to eat, they offer some broad suggestions that can be tailored to your needs and interests: Get organized. Eat less. Eat better. Move more. Get political.
