Eat This, Not That!: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution

Eat This, Not That!: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution - David Zinczenko, Matt Goulding There has never been a more revealing book title. This simplistic (but beautifully photographed) book's sole reason for being is to give the reader a simple food swapping suggestion for many of the bad foods we encounter today. That's it. Nothing really more profound (or useful) than that. It's not a food calorie reference, a nutritional guide, or a comprehensive look at the good and bad choices at popular food chains. Instead it tries to cobble together pieces of each of these onto the dense glossy pages of a handbook-sized volume.

I suppose this is all good on a certain level but much of what the book showcases is either common sense or has been talked about in about a billion other places. You know: instead of a quadruple grease burger topped with fried onions and extra cheese go for the garden salad with 4 drops of non-fat dressing. Thanks. Very helpful.
