Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN
Food and Nutrition Columnist -

As a registered dietitian (RD), certified dietitian/nutritionist (CDN), and nutrition educator for over 30 years, Jo-Ann Heslin knows that her readers are more interested in what to order for lunch than understanding how their metabolism works. As the author of 28 consumer nutrition books, and two college textbooks, she has spent her career translating nutrition science into practical, easy to understand, reliable nutrition advice. She has served as an advisor and consultant to business and industry, as a partner in NRH Nutrition Consultants, Inc., as well as being on the editorial boards or Prevention, American Baby, Environmental Nutrition Newsletter, and The Journal of Nutrition for the Elderly.

Information about food choices is often confusing because scientific information is constantly evolving. Jo-Ann helps readers translate this contradictory information into good advice you can use right now. Everyone loves to talk about food - its fun. But, we need to talk about nutrition, too - it's important to your health.

Today, Jo-Ann's main focus is publishing a nutrition counter series for Pocket Books. The books are widely available at your local or on-line bookseller. Current titles include:

  • The Calorie Counter, 4th Ed.
  • The Cholesterol Counter, 7th Ed.
  • The Complete Food Counter, 3nd Ed.
  • The Diabetes Carbohydrate and Calories Counter, 3rd Ed.
  • The Fat Counter, 7th Ed.
  • The Healthy Heart Food Counter
  • The Healthy Wholefoods Counter
  • The Most Complete Food Counter, 2nd Ed. - trade paperback
  • The Protein Counter
  • The Ultimate Carbohydrate Counter
