Re: [IP] RE: (IP) how much fat is too much

Well you really taught me something I can not find a dietitian and I am
wanting to learn more about carbs and fats and everything else do you know a
book I can get some of that info from it would really help I am sick of
playing the guessing game and my doctor really doesn't tell me much about
carbs he just keeps telling me to find a dietitian which my insurance will
not cover. So can you recommend a book to help please.. thanks alot for your
help even though it wasn't intended for me hahaha.. thats the  great thing
about this web site......
