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!)
5 Stars Great book!
Very great book! I have learned a lot about restaurants that I did not know before reading this! This book has changed my outlook on some of the restaurants and I will never eat at some of those again. What a great book!
5 Stars Amazing book.
I bought this book (last year’s edition) and lost 50 lbs. (with exercise). I went from 230 lbs. to 180 lbs in 6 months. Basically it’s just simple food swaps. What I like about this book the most is they’re NOT telling you to NOT go to any fast food places. But if you’re going to go there anyways to eat, just “eat this, not that!”. If the book was just a list of food you can’t eat, I would’ve never bought it. Telling you you can’t have this or that to eat is horrible. If you can’t eat things without being given replacement things you’ll never lose weight because you’ll feel constantly deprived. They give you simple swaps anyone can do. I cut out a lot of cheese and the pounds were just coming off. No lie. This book was ESSENTIAL to my weight loss. HIGHLY recommended!
2 Stars It’s just OKAY
Very informative book, but that is all it is, informative. It did help me in making wiser choices about food, but I don’t eat fast food every single day so it’s just okay. I would never buy another one of these books, I’ll just research online.
5 Stars Idiot proof
I am often confused and overwhelmed by what I need to know about food and diet. This book will not tell you every single fact, but it gives concrete examples of what good food decisions look like.
5 Stars Great reference guide for eating out.
When it comes to eating out this book provides great guidelines on healthier eating. Enjoy.
