A guide to eating strategically for weight loss shares dietary secrets that can help readers to make informed food choices, providing hundreds of substitutes for specific foods with high calories, fat, and sodium.

McMillan Palgrave
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!

The smartest eating choices--made simple! The secret to looking, feeling, and living better than ever is not by depriving yourself of the foods you love. It's by making the best choices in a variety of real-life situations. Based on the most popular column in both Men's Health and Women's Health magazines, Eat This Not That is a comprehensive guide to what to eat at home, from the supermarket, even at a fast-food counter. Do you know why a hot fudge sundae is a good dessert option? Why potato chips are better than fries? And why Swiss cheese is three times healthier than Cheddar? With this simple, illustrated guide to hundreds and hundreds of foods--along with the nutrition secrets that lead to fast and permanent weight loss--now you will!

If you want to be healthy you shouldn't eat anything in this book. This book is solely to make people who eat processed foods and fast foods feel better about themselves.

Who eats like this! Unless you are going to eat in American fast food restaurants or eat strictly pkg. food,
skip it! What a waste of funds that could have been placed into Canadian content!

This book got me back in the kitchen with gusto again! The recipes are so simple, yet different. They aren't so basic to be boring, and the ingredient list isn't so long that it's daunting. I've enjoyed all the recipes we've tried. I love all the little tips. Very helpful! And, I like that the book is small enough that I can cart it around everywhere with me. I never buy cookbooks, but I bought this one!
It is written by Americans, so the restaurant references are American, but it doesn't take away from the book because the examples are still relateable... food is food. :)

Could have been a good book but as it's American there's a lot of weird & fattening stuff I've never even heard of (thank God).

Great book if you are going to the States. No real Canadian content as a lot of the restaurant food is American. Some contradictions.

I love this series of books. I especially like the recipes in the back. Although I wish more Canadian brands were included...

This book seems to apply most to people who eat out a lot - and at American restaurants. Still, if you don't mind searching through for entries applicable to Canada, it's an interesting, if somewhat horrifying read - discovering the nutritional breakdown of some foods.

A shame much of this book is American content (i.e. restaurant listings), as it gives exact nutritional breakdowns on what you might be eating. If you can sift out what is applicable to everyone, not just those south of the border, this is a very interesting and informative little book.
