Eat This, Not That
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.
