This has also been a big help. Another place where you think you’re drinking something that’s healthy and you’re not.

5 Stars big fan

5 Stars Finding out what’s really in that drink.
I found this to be very informative and interesting to see how many calories were in my mocha blended coffees.

4 Stars Excellent Product!!
It truly opens your eyes and informs you on things you never knew could help with weight loss.

1 Star Don’t Swallow This
This book is every dieter’s dream come true with its promise you can strip away fat and sculpt a leaner, fitter body “without changing the way you eat or having to exercise.” But don’t give up your gym membership yet. As a registered dietitian with over 30 years of experience in weight management, the only “no-diet weight loss solution” you’ll find here is their advice to drink nothing but tap water.

The biggest shortcoming of the book is the lack of any consistent criteria to explain how beverages landed on the “drink this” or “not that” side. So if your favorite beverage happens to be orange juice or a Margarita, you’ll find it on the drink list in one restaurant and the don’t drink list in another. As products on the market change, this book quickly will become outdated.

Another area that doesn’t make sense is the advice about sweeteners. In my work consulting for food and beverage companies I have read all of the studies about the sweeteners in use today. It is clear the authors have not. For example, they claim the sugar found in fruit, honey and agave is better for you than that coming from cane, beet or corn, when they are all the same. Then they critique every ingredient in energy drinks without acknowledging that sugar is actually the only source of energy in any of them.

Given these fundamental problems with the book, I could not recommend it to anyone.
