This is such a good book. It really takes the anxiety of what to buy at the supermarket out of the equation of how to lose weight. It was very detail oriented, so the confusion of what to buy--and what to eat--was easy to understand.

I'd recommend this book to everyone who wants to help their families (and themselves) eat right. Zinczenko and Goulding have completely taken the guesswork out of the supermarket, presenting clear-cut info in an easy-to-digest format. The book is the perfect size to stick in your purse or keep in your car, and the chapter intros and special sections make you a more educated grocery shopper.

This book is a fantastic follow-up to the first two books in the series, "Eat This, Not That!" and "Eat This, Not That! For Kids." Bring us more!

I had heard about the books, but I really thought this was going to be the next "trendy diet" that would be relegated to bottom of the shelf with the rest of the diet books. I picked up the Supermarket version, just to look at the table of contents and this was very interesting. Then I was curious. I flipped a few pages and I was not just pleasantly surprised, but amazed to find the presentation of information was not only smart and clear but also unbiased. It didn't look like any one brand or company was the driver of the information. I had to buy it if not for the "diet" part but for the reference information on how to read the labels and to decifer the marketing on the packaging. I realized quickly that there was so much information in this little square book that I could not possibly remember all of it. I now use it as my reference book when I make my grocery list. I lent it to a co-worker and she's going to get her own copy as well. The only down side to this book is the abundant amount of information, but is that really a bad thing?

I thought I was making some healthy decisions but was surprised to find that I was making some wrong choices. I wish I could get this as an app. It would be a blessing at the store!

This is the most valuable book in the the "Eat This Not That" series because it provides hundreds of tips for when I go food shopping every weekend. I thought I was eating healthy already and was shocked to learn all of the bad choices I was making. After reading this, I emptied my pantry and re-stocked and I feel better already!

I like the help this book offers to readers! However unless you can remember all the facts and numbers and brand names, or want to bring the book with you food shopping it may be a little overwhelming. It is also sometimes hard to tell what food they recommend as a "best food". You really have to do a lot of your own comparisons in the store; especially if your store doesn't sell all the options found in the book. It is a good start to a healthier life style though!

Eat This and Not That...it doesn't get much more simple. This is both the strength and weakness of this approach.

The Good: this handy guide is packed with visual comparisons of some of the most popular food and quickly gives you visual reference that compares two products and makes the purchasing decision between brands a no-brainer. It also offers some information about how to make more informed decisions about the food you are buying

The Bad: I think this book often makes it too easy to feel like buying the alternative it provides is a good idea. Often, it will compare two products and both are full of crap, one just has less calories than the other. Peppered throughout the book are also utterly ridiculous examples on swapping one brand of junk food for another...buy the low calorie pop tarts instead of the regular...I wish the authors would have just left this kind of non-sense out of the book. Sometimes buying neither would be a better alternative then choosing the lesser of two evils.

The Bottom Line: It's a good primer overall I suppose and helps with being more aware of the brands and products you are buying. The unique approach makes it easy to use.

If you want to take it a step further and have this really be a more valuable tool, pickup the brand X and brand Y and read the labels and the ingredients...well, actually you don't need the book for that.

I am duch a fan of ETNT books. They make shopping so easy.

I don't mind dieting and following written diets. However, I am always at a loss when it comes to grocery shopping. Not anymore, this book is filled with helpful tips on what foods to avoid buying and it also points out advertising and packaging traps not to get lured into. A must read for anyone trying to eat a healthy diet.

This book, although not a novel, is actually quite a page-turner. It's fascinating to learn about the details of what's in our food (in an easy-to-understand manner) and how seemingly similar foods and brands can actually be quite different. We found ourselves bringing this with us to the grocery store to help guide our purchases. It also helps you realize that you can eat a lot healthier just by making some basic changes in the foods your purchase.

I found the book to be basic, for the beginner, and for those that like to eat junk food. It has alot of junk food alternatives. I did find a few items helpful. This book is not for someone who follows a natural and organic diet already.

This book is totally awesome. There is so much information that I didn't know and maybe didn't want to know because junk food is so good. But, there is some junk food that is good so you need to get the book....stat! The book is broken down into categories and very easy to find information. My 86 year old mother got her hands on it and changed eating habits immediately....even tho she is not trying to lose any of her 110 pounds. I on the other hand am trying to lose weight and it has been very successful for me in changing my eating strategies.
