“The book was so easy to use. And I said this is a no brainer. I have nothing to do but to go to the grocery store and look at this book. And I dropped 35 pounds within a year. My husband used to call me his ‘full sized woman.’ Of course, he doesn’t say that any more and he can’t keep his hands off me!” – Darlene, ETNT reader.

If you are serious about putting your own health and that of your family at the top of the priority list of things truly important, I believe you will be very happy you purchased this book. It's layout helps to find key information quickly, without having to read all the smaller print, when you're in a hurry.
You will be really surprised, perhaps even shocked, to find reasons why your old habits in shopping should be changed. This is scientifically backed up information about truly smart shopping!
Don't just think about it, go ahead and click it into your shopping cart!
However, there were a number of typos that surprised me considering the popularity of this series and the presumed level of editing that should be expected. Nothing drastic as far as impacting the information but it was a bit distracting at times. Also, although I did find some of the brand comparisons to be informative, it would have been helpful for kind of a 'global' summary of what to look for in different areas since the gazillion of brands out there obviously limit the comparisons to a very small segment of brands and foods available. Although they did include energy bars they didn't really hit on the more common sets of breakfast and snack bars such as Fiber One, etc. Nor any real discussion on prepared fresh fruits and salads (but I am cognizant that not everything can be included). Also, sometimes what separated an item on the 'good' side from one or more on the 'bad' side was not always clear when reviewing the nutritional information provided.
Also, a very quick and short summary of recommended levels would help. Some things were touched on (e.g., amount of fiber) but a small chart about levels/limits for sodium,calcium, vitamins, etc would be nice--just a very small resource so we don't have to go look this information up in another venue, especially if we take this little book with us to the store, as I intend to do very soon (sorry if I missed it).
Anyway, a nice resource for the money tho as one other reviewer noted, it is primarily a review of prepared commercial foods--a lot of it junk food. I have no problem with this as many people do use these items a lot. I tend not to use a lot of prepared foods but still, for some of those I do use (cereals, some condiments) I think this will be a useful resource and worth the money. Just be aware this is NOT the resource for an in-depth analysis of fresh foods, sauces, etc.
I am looking forward to hitting my local store with this little book in hand and looking at some of the items I tend to purchase and maybe make some changes now that I have even more information about what to look for beyond nutritional data and sugary (and derivatives) ingrediants which is what I have primarily scoured labels for in the past. Will probably have security watching me closely LOL!
If you want to know what lies we can be told about food or whats acceptable to the government in the processing of food Read THIS Book. It will change how you eat and shop also where and what. You will never look at the grocery store and the products in it the same way again.
As a closing note I can honestly say I have never bought my son a lunchable and as far as I know he has never eaten one. That I can directly attribute to this book and I am grateful. Also the information on food coloring turned out to be very right and true, For that we are eternally grateful to the publishers.
