Review

 Everyone loves Eat This, Not That:
“ETNT is one of my favorite books ever—the original [Eat This, Not That!], and everything [Eat This, Not That! book] that’s come out after. It’s just so smart. You give people such easy ways to make tiny little choices that add up to [losing] 10, 20, 30 pounds.... Such a brilliant concept.”
--Rachael Ray
 
“Thank you for freaking everybody out!”
-- Matt Lauer Today Show
 
Eat This, Not That! Is for lazy, lazy, lazy people like me! It was so easy to understand. If it weren’t for ETNT’s straightforward clarity about how food is made and packaged, I don’t think my weight loss attempt would have worked.”

I ordered four different versions of the "Eat This Not That!" books...thinking that they each had something unique for me to learn...not so. Just buy one they all say about the same thing. The books offer an interesting additional concept to your healthy eating practices.

I love this book. I can go to the grocery store a little better armed with the knowledge of what is best for my family. The only thing I don't like about this book is that it doesn't necessarily discourage one from eating certain foods that we know are already unhealthy for us but tells us which unhealthy foods are on the better side of the line. That's why I call it a supplement. However, I love, LOVE the chapters that talk about foods that are beneficial for certain areas of your health. There's a chapter on foods for blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar. There are blurbs about foods that will help with stress, mood, energy, feeling slim, metabolism, sleep, illness, libido, fertility, work outs, skin.......lots of interesting useful info. AND, if you're a person or a family that likes to eat out, this is a great guide to dishes out there that are surprises in the areas of calories and sodium intake. Very useful resource.

This book is a great publication. The quality of the book and pages are superior, and it's very different from the other "EAT THIS NOT THAT" books. I purchased several of the others and I'm glad I did. They are not repetitious. I recommend purchasing it.

Everone who eats out alot should have this book.Its a real eye openner.You will be amazed of the foods that are bad for you,and the one's that are good.
Salads are the worst at some of the fast food chains,and the Burgar King Whooper is over 1400 calories.
This book names the best and worst Restaurants,and the best foods to order when you eat there.I can't get enough of this book,even though some reviewers are saying if you bought the first one,don't bother with the rest of the collection.

This was a very informative & interesting book. I love the color photographs on every single page, and the nutritional info is staggering in some instances. I do wish that they gave a broader selection of items that could be subsituted for the really bad ones. I am sure there is more than 1 item that would be a healthier option at different places. I am glad I bought this book, and I do recommend it to everyone.

Frozen foods, pizzas, burgers, desserts and many other well-loved treats get the full analysis.

This book is really an eye opener. Before reading it, I never really grasped how calorie-filled the food I ate really was. I've noticed changed just weeks after I started following their guidelines.

Format: Hardcover
"Eat This and Not That" is a guide to eating healthier and reducing caloric intake for those who eat out and eat primarily at fast food restaurants in our "drive-thru society." One possible solution to additionally add is: do *not* eat at fast food restaurants. With these words of wisdom, the problem is solved.

However....with our brief lunch break and long commutes in our age of being in hurry and having to do more with less time, many of us eat fast fast food out of convenience. We honestly may not want to eat this stuff, but we do. In "Eat this not that" there is ample breakdown of caloric amounts. Buy having this information you can literally save thousands of calories a day. A lot of the caloric, sodium, sugar, and fat gram information is included and quite surprising. The focus is on fast food and supermarket junk food, but this is a health book, and it's focus is counting calories. Hydrogenated oils, and fructose corn syrups are also included and very important for people to be aware of.

Many fast food choices that seem to be "healthier" or have less calories are often far worse than we think. Fast food has high caloric density, meaning a small item can have massive amounts of calories, fat, and sodium. Sodium is the hidden killer in fast food and restaurant foods. When we eat meals containing dangerous levels of sodium we cannot even taste it and tell it's loaded with salt. This book suggests swapping the worst choices for better choices.

Some readers wanted content on Protein and minerals in these fast foods. Folks, if you feel you need to know this info - don't eat fast food. The macros of Protein/Carb/Fat ratios are negligible. Don't stand on a pair of empty train tracks in the country-side on the lookout for low flying airplanes.
