This book includes a diet calculator, an obesity chart and 100 menu prescription forms. The diet calculator and the obesity chart provide considerable amounts of data on circulating wheels, so that it is simple for the physician to make up diets containing given amounts of protein, fat and carbohydrate to meet the necessities of cardiorenal disease, neuroses or epilepsy. The obesity diets are calculated to provide menus for the various meals of the day containing definite amounts of protein, fats and carbohydrates and also to meet minimum caloric requirements. The volume should be most useful to general practitioners who feel the need of preparing special diet lists for individual patients in their office practice.
