Eat This, Not That! Thousands of Simple Food Swaps that Can Save You 10, 20, 30 Pounds--or More! by Matt Goulding

Eat what you want, when you want–and watch the pounds disappear!

Americans spend more than $400 billion a year eating out, and behind each burger, turkey sandwich, and ice cream sundae is a simple decision that could help you control your weight–and your life. The problem is, restaurant chains and food producers arent interested in helping you make healthy choices. In fact, they invest $30 billion a year on advertising, much of it aimed at confusing eaters and disguising the fat and calorie counts of their products.

All of that has changed with EAT THIS, NOT THAT!. This book puts the entire food industry under the spotlight, and arms you with the savvy tricks and insider information it takes to eat well no matter where you are. With EAT THIS, NOT THAT! youre the expert in every eating situation, from the frozen food aisle to your favorite fast food joint to your local sports bar. You control your food universe–and lose the pounds you want–because, unlike every other customer, youll know the smart choices to make–instantly!

EAT THIS, NOT THAT! is jam-packed with secrets the restaurant industry doesnt want you to know. For example: * Burger King doesnt want you to know that a BK Big Fish® Sandwich and fries have a whopping 1000 calories–nearly half your daily caloric intake! (Fish is usually healthy, but not this kind. Find out why with this book.) * Pizza Hut doesnt want you to know that a standard pizza in Italy contains 500 to 800 calories, but the same meal at Pizza Hut can top 2,100 calories! (Youd need to ride a stationary bike for more than three hours to burn off this mistake. Instead, eat all the pizza you want by making smart choices. EAT THIS, NOT THAT! shows you how.) * Macaroni Grill doesnt want you to know that a single serving of their Grilled Teriyaki Salmon has more than three times your daily allowance of sodium! (Cut your risk of high blood pressure by making smart choices at the same restaurant. Youll find them inside.)

If only you knew the industry secrets, you could eat at any of your favorite restaurants–or chow down on everything from the company vending machine to your kids Halloween buckets–and know that every decision you made was smart, healthy, and the best possible choice for you. For example, did you know: * At McDonalds, an Egg McMuffin® is actually a healthy choice, with just 300 calories. (The Hotcakes pack more than double that amount!) * At Krispy Kreme, all you need to do is order the Very Berry Chiller instead of the Mocha Dream Chiller, and youll save 500 calories! (Do that once a week and youll drop more than 7 pounds this year–without trying!) * At Chipotle, you can cut 570 calories out of your Chicken Burrito just by ordering it as a bowl (without the tortilla) and asking them to hold the rice. (Same great taste, but with 94 fewer carb grams!) * Choosing a cinnamon roll at Au Bon Pain over Cinnabon will save you 463 calories and 20 grams of fat! * In the freezer section of your local supermarket, a turkey pot pie from Swansons has 610 fewer calories than a turkey pot pie from Pepperidge Farms. * In the produce aisle, youll get twice the vitamin C–and nine times as much vitamin A–simply by picking red bell peppers over green ones. (Who said eating healthy was difficult?)

And thats why EAT THIS, NOT THAT! is going to change everything. Its time to level the playing field. Were all tired of sneaky calories adding to our waistlines, and having to starve ourselves or spend hours on the treadmill trying to burn off the damage. Now–for the first time–youre in charge. With this simple illustrated guide to thousands of foods–along with the nutrition secrets that lead to fast and permanent weight loss–youll make the smartest choice every time!

Diet Books
As a writer for Men’s Health magazine, Zinczenko brings years of food and nutrition knowledge to the bookstore in the form of the Eat This Not That series. In this edition, Zinczenko provides information regarding food choices that everyday people make several times a day. This isn’t about sprouts and bean salads; real food that real people eat daily is presented in easy to read and understand (and compare) terms that offer an eye-opening experience to the world of food. This edition also includes an extensive comparison section of some of the nation’s most popular (and populous) restaurants, with the writers knowing that people aren’t going to eliminate these restaurants from their lists, so why not arm them with knowledge before they go?

Did you know that the Aussie Cheese Fries at Outback Steakhouse clock in at just under 3,000 calories? Or that the McDonald’s Filet o’ Fish is almost 300 calories less than the Burger King equivalent? Or that mixing dark alcohol with diet sodas will get you drunk faster and leave you with a longer, more painful hangover than if you stick with lighter liquors like gin, vodka, and white wine?

Between this and the supermarket edition that I read a couple weeks ago, I really feel better armed to face the food monsters that confront me every day, knowing that when I do make a more poor choice, I’m doing it with awareness of just what I’m choosing (sorry, Mr Zinczenko, I really can’t give up Ranch dressing entirely. Mmm…) I can and will, however, opt for water more often at restaurants than my usual diet soda or lemonade, approach the fruits and veggies in my kitchen with more gusto, and embrace my Triscuit habit joyfully (Triscuits are pretty good for you, actually! Lots of fiber in rough wheat format so your digestive system gets a great workout…just watch the salt!)

Unlike other “diet” books I’ve read, I actually feel prepared to be in the normal world where special dishes and meals aren’t necessary because I know how to make better choices. Yay for choices!

This isn’t really meant for the health nuts and food experts out there who already know about healthy eating–if you’re one of those, you will likely not benefit from this book. For the rest of us, though, it’s a good introductory step toward making better choices that eventually lead to more better choices.
