The original and best-selling installment of EAT THIS, NOT THAT! has helped literally thousands of people improve their lives by increasing their nutritional intakes while blasting away unwanted belly fat. The secret? The revolutionary concept that the battle of the bulge is won not through deprivation and discipline, but by making a series of simple food swaps that can save you hundreds – if not thousands – of calories a day.
EAT THIS, NOT THAT! is the only book that holds the food industry accountable for the surreptitious loads of sugar, fat, and sodium stuffed into foods that were once reliable sources of lean nutrition. It arms you with the savvy tricks and insider information you need to eat well in today’s dangerous food landscape. With EAT THIS, NOT THAT! you're 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, you'll know the smart choices to make--instantly!
Now get this: The pressure from EAT THIS, NOT THAT! is actually reshaping the food landscape to your benefit! Since it’s original publication in 2007, here’s how some restaurants have responded:
- Baskin Robbins eliminated its 2,300-calorie Heath Bar Shake.
- Outback Steakhouse downsized its Aussie Cheese Fries from 2,900 calories to 2,140 calories.
- Macaroni Grill replaced the 1,120-calorie Kids’ Double Mac ‘n’ Cheese with a more reasonable 670-calorie version.
- Restaurants such as Quiznos, Red Lobster, and Olive Garden began publishing nutritional information for the first time ever.
- And that’s just to name a few!

This book breaks things down into categories that make it easy when making choices in a particular food category. This enables you, over time, to learn the difference about food choices & creates a lifestyle change. Don't think of this as a "diet" book, but rather a learning tool.
I have loaned my book out various times & helped many friends learn how to make healthier choices. As a result, many have purchased this book & also it became a domino effect lol.
Love this book & still use it as a refresher often. Will be looking to see if an updated version has been published.
A lot of the pages are made up of graphics. On a Google Nexus 7, no matter what I do through Kindle to change the text size on the Graphics, it won't. I can't even pinch zoom in to it.... :(
When I enlarge the text, the only thing that would be enlarged is the actual text of the book but nothing on graphics.
I wish you guys could update this digital book to be able to change the text size on the graphics so that I can read what it says on the captions on these graphic pages. Just a request. Thank you.
The one short coming in the book is that each resturant or fast food joint only has about six menu items (Three on each side of the eat this not that cycle). I'd like to see many more in all the resturants they list. Hopefully some day will come when they mak a book that is basically a much more in depth listing of many of the most popular resturant's menu. Regardless if you're single or a family person...This is a good informative book....Especially if your job is on the road and you eat at resturants all the time (I'm waiting for the Truckstop Addition so I too can have a better guide...But seeing how most truck stops are putting in popular fast food joints I'm gettting a lot of info here)
I think "that" is smart. We bought three or four for our kids and ourselves...and anyway, they are cheap to buy, a good "starter" or "refresher" on everyday diet information.
I am not related to an any way, nor the author.
