Eat All Your Favorite Foods—And Watch the Pounds Disappear!

Two years after the runaway success of the original Eat This, Not That!, co-authors Matt and Dave noticed an interesting trend: Restaurants were actually cleaning up their menus! With consumers avoiding the country’s worst calorie offenses, some restaurants saw fit to remove them from the menu entirely. Consider this:

· After Chili’s Awesome Blossom took the runner-up spot on the “Worst Foods in America” list, Chili’s removed the appetizer from their menu entirely.
· Pepperidge Farm followed suit after being placed on the Worst Foods list and discontinued their Roasted Chicken Pot Pie.
· When Jamba Juice earned a citation on the Worst Drinks in America list, the chain stopped serving the largest size of their Chocolate Moo’d smoothie and recommitted itself to becoming one of the healthiest restaurant chains in the nation.

The problem is, as the old crop of calorie atrocities were eliminated, a new army of gut-bombs emerged in their place. That’s why the authors created Eat This, Not That! 2010, to empower you with the knowledge to battle a food industry bent on sabotage your waistline with unwanted and unnecessary calories. In this new-and-expanded edition, you’ll find fresh restaurant and supermarket comparisons, an encyclopedia of food packaging lies, and the invaluable guide to eating healthy on a budget. Essentially you’ll learn how to make effortless food swaps that will help you strip away 10, 20, 30 pounds or more.

Did you know:
· Choosing Prime Rib over Baby Back Ribs at Outback will save you more than 2,000 calories?
· You can save nearly 500 calories and more than 20 grams of fat just by ordering your banana split at Dairy Queen instead of Baskin-Robbins?
· A Stouffer’s White Meat Chicken Pot Pie has as much saturated fat as 6 scoops of ice cream? (Choose our alternative and save more than 900 calories!)

I am a fitness trainer and aerobics instructor. A good portion of my job requires me to consult (and take classes) on nutrition. With that said, I also try to read all of these new diet books. David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding's book is a great reference. At our gym, we keep this on our shelves and refer to it often...and you should too. As someone else reviewed on Barnes & Noble, I too am a HUGE fan of another book that should be read by ANYONE looking to alter their body. That book is "Build Your Mind, Your Body Will Follow", by Vincent Cocilovo. This is a quick read, and should be the cornerstone of ALL diet and exercise endeavors.

I think the book is very informative.

Let's face it, we all can't eat all organic and eat only at home. We all have busy lives and that means we have to eat out sometimes or only buy whats on sale rather then the more costly healthy one. These books realize that and say "Hey, if you have to eat out, choose this over that and save 20g Fat." etc.. It's a must read for all of us on the go.

My favorite thing about the Eat This, Not That book is that it shows things with so many pictures. They have taken the important message and shown it to the readers in a visual way. This makes the book easy and quick to read. Another great thing about this book is that it is set up so that you could read any chapter in any order and it won't matter. You don't have to sit down and read it cover to cover. You can just choose which chapter appeals to you right then and quickly flip through it. I think this makes it easy to be a reference book. There is so much information in here that you probably couldn't memorize it all but you can easily flip to it when you need it. One of my favorite books on healthy eating!

I am now taking this book to the grocery store. The sections are organized well, sometimes the products are not available. The fast food section is general and has many restaurants that are not in my area, Midwest. I like this book the best of the series because it cover some of everything includes some recipes.

When I first opened this book, I wondered whether it was going to be a benefit to me. It didn't take long for me to realize its usefulness. It's good for anyone who ever believed they understood fast food or restaurant cuisine. A real eye-opener.

This book is good for the normal "schmo" who likes to go out and pick up quick bites to eat, but knows that they need to make better choices when they do. It covers a wide array of food choices, and you can make inferences for restaurants that are not listed by looking at similar-style restaurants. There are some really eye-opening surprises that will really make you re-evaluate your thoughts about what "healthy" eating is. I really love it because it was not a diet book, it was a practical look at how real people can make real easy choices for better food. The sections on superfoods and ingredients that make foods good or bad was very well done. If you are looking for a book that will make you lose weight with fast food eating. .. THIS IS NOT IT!!

A quick and easy read that will open your eyes! Some of the information is shocking and will change how you eat. It's a well rounded book and I got a lot of good info out of it.

This book opened my eyes to the alternatives to all my 'fall-back' snacks and meal options. Just finding out what my options were to cut down on unhealthy ingredients and improve my food choices has made a huge difference in what I eat but I don't feel deprived. The format of the book is helpful and easy to navigate and the writing is clear and informative. I bought the book, added the info to my menu lists and then passed it on to friends so they might benefit from the material.

Wow - what an eye-opener. This book lays out easy-to-understand, sobering comparisons. Key learning: you don't know what you're eating when you eat out. You may think you're making healthy choices, but be careful! Fast food isn't all unhealthy, and a sit-down dinner isn't always healthy! I keep mine in the car, and sneak a peek before I eat out ANYWHERE! This book will help keep you on track. Consult before you eat.

A lot of useful information about what not to eat at most restaurants. Easy to look up information and easy to digest. Excellent reference material.

I am tired of trying to count. With this book you can read the choices available before you go to a certain restaurant. It is very simple to eliminate the high caloried foods before you choose them. It leaves you a choice of the lower caloried foods but does not limit you to one choice. You can see the variety without having to ask the server or stand in front of a list posted on a restaurent wall--if you can find one. It's a very handy book.

My husband and I have both examined this book thoroughly and love it for so much helpful info. Glad we bought it and will keep it by our kitchen table to refer to often. Thank you.
