This book is a fun read and incredibly revealing. I never realized how fast liquid calories add up. Apparently studies are showing that the average person drinks more than 400 calories per day, which is like a whole other meal added to our diets. Plus the pictures are so artfully done that you forget you're actually learning how to lose weight. Here are my favorite parts:

- The Beer & Cocktail Chapter. Seriously, I had no idea how many calories I could be saving by changing my drink(s) of choice.
-The Coffee Section. Now I don't have to feel so guilty when I decide to have little caffeinated indulgence.
-The Recipes. These are great. At a restaurant a shake can be a thousand or more calories, but this book shows you how to make healthier versions with under 300. Not to mention loads of smoothies and a few great cocktails and coffee drinks. Yum.

While some of the other This/Not That books touched on beverages, I was so happy to hear there would finally be one just about drinks-- after all we apparently get about a fifth of calories from liquids-- and the book doesn't disappoint.

The tips are practical to follow in every day life, just like the other books from the series. For instance, getting an iced latte from McDonald's instead of an iced coffee makes no difference to me in terms of taste, but over time I can save countless calories with the little adjustment, and lose weight without having to "diet" in the traditional sense of the word.

This is not a diet book telling you to go lo carb, or only eat strange foods that are impossible to get-- it's a way to reframe your understanding of what you put into your body, and be healthier without changing your lifestyle in terms of going out and having fun.

Format: Paperback
Following the rest of the series in true form, this book is just another reminder that American's have taken for granted what they consume and how they consume it. The authors of these books are fighting a war against mindless eating...and now drinking.

I personally have watched myself spiral down that path of soda addiction and drank away as a summer beer gut appeared. Drinks aren't something we think about like we think about food when we watch how we "eat."

I especially appreciate the beer comparisons (Keystone over Budwiser?!, who knew?) and the series-true "worst of" section. I am also glad they took a harsher look at juices and smoothies; I think it's harder for the country in general to note problems with these products.

Overall, I think it's a great book, a wake-up call and a reminder that we have to be conscious of every product we put into our bodies. That is what the series is about, and the existence of the book alone is a powerful message to all mindless drinkers.

Did you know that a Red Lobster "Traditional Lobsterita" has the same calories as two Wendy's quarter-pound hamburgers? Trying to figure out what a lobsterita is? This book is for you.

Perfect for anyone watching their waistline or wanting to be healthier, Drink This Not That is a must-have. Before picking this up, I didn't know that 21 percent of an American's daily calorie intake came from drinks. What a shocker! Simply returning to the calories that Americans drank 30 years ago would cut 23 pounds in a year.

Drink This Not That follows the familiar pattern of the Eat This Not That series: Gorgeous graphics and full-color photos, food report cards, head-to-head comparisons, restaurant reviews, nutritional education. It also has recipes like the Cook This Not That book, for everything from chai tea to The Blue Monster smoothie.

A particularly compelling section called America's Drinking Problem has pages of "worst-of" lists based on their healthiness: Worst water (Snapple's Agave Melon Antioxidant Water), worst bottled tea (Honest Tea Green Dragon Tea), worst energy drink (Monster Lo-Carb), worst bottled coffee (Starbucks Vanilla Frappuccino) and on and on. The worst beverage in America? Cold Stone PB&C in the Gotta Have It size, which is the sugar equivalent of 30 Chewy Chips Ahoy Cookies.

Format: Paperback
A book like this has the power to help you implement incredible changes in your diet and food intake in such a way that you will dramatically lose weight and feel no hunger whatsoever. This is because we are dealing with your fluid intake which is never filling, no matter how much you drink. Just think about this however. You would have to cut your fluid intake by half, that's right, 50% just to be back to what the average American drank 30 years ago. If you did that, you would also lose about 23 pounds per year.

Somewhere in the last 20 or 30 stars Americas went through a perception change, and they started to drink soda as the equivalent of water. About 15 years ago, the average American drank as much soda per day as they did water, which tells you about what a massive change we have all gone through. Today the average American consumes about a gallon of soda per week. There is no nutritional content - it is simply wasted calories.

The Coca Cola Company is responsible for 5% of the consumption of all the sugar in the world, that's the whole planet. Fortunately for them, they use enormous amounts of fructose corn syrup, which is cheap and absolutely horrible on the human body, but it has created enormous profits for the food industry. If you want to do yourself a favor, look at the labeling on the food packages you buy, if it contains this product, just walk away. You will lose weight by making that decision.

In 1980 we consumed on average 2 and a half gallons of bottled water per year. Now many Americans only drink water in a bottled format. It's telling you something, and the PET bottles that it comes in, cannot be good for either you or the environment. By the way 85% of all coke is sold via PET bottles. It's all here in this powerful book.
