Overview

We all want to eat well, cut calories and keep ourselves and our families happy and healthy. But with all our commitments and claims on our time-work, school, hobbies, commuting and ferrying our kids to their extracurricular activities-we don't always have time for home-cooked meals. Fast food-whether it's from our favourite fun night out restaurant or the on the way to work coffee shop-is a reality of our busy lives.

Overview

We all want to eat well, cut calories and keep ourselves and our families happy and healthy. But with all our commitments and claims on our time-work, school, hobbies, commuting and ferrying our kids to their extracurricular activities-we don't always have time for home-cooked meals. Fast food-whether it's from our favourite fun night out restaurant or the on the way to work coffee shop-is a reality of our busy lives. But just because it's a reality it doesn't mean it has to be a high-calorie or unhealthy reality. Healthy choices can be made at fast-food restaurants. When we're at A&W's, how many of us know to choose a Mamaburger over a Mozzaburger? At Panago's, a Quattro Cheese on Multigrain Thin Crust pizza over a Primo Vegetarian Hand Tossed pizza? At Starbucks, a Butter Croissant over a Blueberry Scone? At all three of these restaurants, the first option is-surprisingly-healthiest one! Rose Reisman's Choose It and Lose It sets out a selection of the healthier choices for these restaurants and 62 others with clear explanations of why the choices are the healthy ones. Rose includes guidance on how to judge ingredients and levels of saturated fats in meals and understand how these contribute to calorie counts and nutritional values. This illustrated, easy-to-use, small-format book make it a handy reference guide for those who want to learn how to deconstruct a restaurant meal at a glance and make the healthy choice every time.
