You start the day with a Banana Pecan Muffin and a Peach Raspberry Smoothie, lunch on Vegetarian Chili, and enjoy Shrimp Pad Thai for dinner and Apple Blueberry Crisp for dessert—all together only 1,126 calories. Too good to be true? Not when you make the delicious, guilt-free versions in The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook, which advises readers not only how many calories they’ve taken in—but also how many minutes of walking or jogging it takes to burn off those calories.

Award-winning nutrition-cookbook author Catherine Jones’s 
200 recipes—think whole foods, with no food groups sacrificed—deliver the biggest possible nutrient bang per calorie. NIH-affiliated nutritionist and dietitian Elaine Trujillo oversees the nutritional information and detailed appendix with calorie values of 1,000+ popular foods and drinks, and much more. Cornell nutrition professor Malden Nesheim helps us understand exactly what calories are, how our bodies use them, and why we don’t have to exercise off every last calorie we eat.
