A new U.S. Department of Agriculture publication, "Calories & Weight" is an easily portable, easy-to-read book that gives the calorie value of 400 foods plus reputable nutrition information.

Pay particular attention to the discussion on serving sizes of popular foods.

You'll find drawings of just how big a 3-ounce hamburger patty is, for example (only 3 inches in diameter and half an inch thick, we're sorry to say). Drawings of meat and poultry slices are given as well.

In other words, no more excuses to cheat.

Send a check or money order for $1.75 payable to the Superintendent of Documents, to the Consumer Information Center, Pueblo, Colo. 81009.
