Editorial Reviews

Review

"Why do men lose weight faster than women? What if I’m still hungry after dinner? Are there foods that help speed up metabolism? These and other questions related to healthy eating are answered in this amusing and informative book by dietitian/nutritionist Schapiro, aided by Rich. Here readers will find the truth about gluten-free eating, enhanced waters, and other timely topics. VERDICT Not a diet book per se but a strong collection of useful general information." —Library Journal

"Schapiro and Rich write in a style that will make readers feel like they’re at a girlfriends’ night out, drinking wine (empty calories!) and getting “no-holds-barred” answers for “every modern woman wondering why her weight is high, her libido is low, and her mind is scattered.” The book covers 99 common questions about health and diet. Organization can be a little light—sometimes related topics are grouped together, and sometime not. Still, the questions are timely, many relating to popular diet fads and strategies: should one “scoop out” a bagel, eat wraps instead of sandwiches, or go completely gluten-free? It’s all here: sugar; soda; jet lag; dessert; eating out; dark meat vs. light. . . . This fun, breezy guide positions the authors as both experts and the reader’s best friends, encouraging, advising, and cheering on." —Publisher's Weekly

"This book is packed with helpful answers to countless eating questions. Ilyse and Hallie do an exceptional job of providing practical advice with an entertaining dose of humor. You’ll laugh, learn, and likely pass on a number of these useful gems to friends and family members!" —Joy Bauer MS, RDN, Founder of Nourish Snacks, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and NBC’s TODAY Show nutritionist

"A great read with easy to digest, extremely helpful information on health and nutrition. In a breezy, playful style, Ilyse and Hallie give you useful ideas that you can implement today." —Joel Harper, NYC Celebrity Fitness Trainer

"I love their approach to health and nutrition. This book gives me the power to make informed decisions in a balanced and achievable way." —Angie Everhart, model and actress

"The world of nutrition is continually evolving; however, many people are walking around believing information from twenty or thirty years ago. Should I Scoop Out My Bagel? debunks popular myths and gives you the most up-to-date nutrition and lifestyle information that is relatable and easy-to-understand. It’s also a great conversation starter—after reading it, you’ll be the one telling family and friends the real deal about many common misconceptions." —Toby Amidor, MS, RD, national nutrition expert, author of The Greek Yogurt Kitchen and columnist for Today’s Dietitian magazine

37 reviews and all 5 stars (as of my writing this review)? Not so sure about that. It is a decent book. It's not exactly War and Peace though.

What did I like? As some other reviewers have said, the format's great - basically, 100 FAQs. The questions themselves are also what I would imagine a lot of people might have - questions about non-traditional grains, non-dairy milks, cleanses, gluten, fasting, organics, pro-biotics. Finally, the answers are pretty straightforward, easy to understand, down-to-earth, realistic, and seem to contain some valuable information.

So, what did I not like? Well, one thing is the authors' sense of humor. Some of the reviewers seemed to like it. For me, though, it was just one groan-inducing pun after another. These typically come in at the very beginning and the very end of each question. Here are some examples:

- Burgers can be hot and juicy as long as you know where the beef is. Always have it your way and then you'll be lovin' it!
- With sushi, you must be careful so that you don't end up getting a raw deal!
- ... as long as you keep your coffee habit in check, you'll avoid a latte problems.

Maybe you share the authors' penchant for puns. For me, though, it's kind of like anchovies on pizza. There are a small subset of people who love them. The rest of us, though, simple can't stand 'em.

My second beef is that some of this stuff is very basic. Yes, whole grains are better than refined ones. Yup, you need your calcium. Nope, you can't just skip breakfast. That said, I did learn quite a few things I didn't know before.

Finally, this is very much geared toward women. Nothing wrong with that. It just would've been nice to know upfront (I'm a guy). It also would have been very easy to edit that out and make this book for all genders.

Love the book more than my favorite salt bagel at Bagel Express.
As a guy, This was the take me out to the ballgame of healthy eating.
A quick read, and I felt my self getting healthier as I turned the pages.
So guys, this is not a have a flat stomach chick book. I did have my salt shaker close by throughout.
I now know why the bread basket at the dinner table is so evil.
This book is a helpful, funny, and you may blush once of twice, tapestry of what you thought you knew, what your grandmother told you,
and maybe shaky words of wisdom from your school nurse.
I don't want to give too much of the book away, and I don't want my review to become my second book.
The book is a gem, and the authors are genius for launching this week.
Recap. Keep the book in your car. You may be in the Arby's drive thru lane and the book
flashes you a dirty look, while reaching for your wallet.
Soda embargo. This book finally convinced me my home needed a soda exorcism.
Just like bagels, buy this book by the dozen, if you want your friends and relatives to
have a happy, healthy, honest read.

These ladies are onto something! Ilyse Schapiro and Hallie Rich come across as smart, savvy experts who finally put to rest many of the nutrition myths out there. Whether I hear it in the gym or just from speaking with friends, everyone seems to think they know the truth about the latest trends. Well these authors cut to the chase in an easy to read and relatable way. The Q&A format means you can jump around and don't have to read it in order which I happened to really like -- especially since the PMS question, for example, doesn't rerelate to me. Everything you want to know about nutrition is in here, from alcohol, to sushi, to what vitamin to take to figuring out the best breakfast cereal. This book is the real deal!

Should I Scoop Out My Bagel? is a very approachable book about nutrition and eating right. Styled in the format of questions about food that most of us have probably had at some point, the book provides simple and straightforward answers about what we should and should not be eating. The authors, however, live in the real world and recognize that there is nothing wrong with some food indulgences in moderation, which is a welcome approach from a nutrition book. Highly recommended!

LOVE this book!!! The format of this book is brilliant! There are 100 commonly asked questions about nutrition, health, lifestyle, and just living a healthy life. Each question is listed in the table of contents and the answers are about a page or two long.This book invites you to pick it up, peruse a few questions and come back to it when time allows. Humor is inserted in a very clever and entertaining way. I found myself laughing out loud! Kudos to the authors for writing a book that is inclusive of men and women and spans every age. Chock full of very informative advice written by highly educated women. A great gift!

"Should I Scoop Out my Bagel!" will make you shake your head with confirmation on many nutrition ideas you thought were correct and then make your eyes "pop" with new information. This book is an amazingly comprehensive guide that is sure to help dispel nutrition and health myths while making you laugh out loud. Moreover, it is written in such a way that you can pick up from where you left off and also mark the pages as reference.

The authors clearly know their stuff and also know what is realistic. This is not a diet book with any gimmicks, rather Hallie and Ilyse share secrets that they know and how to stay healthy while actually enjoying food, company, and living. This book will quickly become my "go-to" and is one that I know I'll reference for years to come. They reveal the secrets of the experts and the tricks of their respective trades. With so much information and so many “rules” out there, this book gives readers the tools to sort through the BS and know what is truly important and actually relevant to their health. I'm so thrilled that I made the purchase and can't stop telling friends and family. Thank you Hallie + Ilyse!!!
