Synopsis:

Based on the most popular column in both "Men's Health" and "Women's Health" magazines, this work is a comprehensive guide for smart food shopping in the supermarket.

Synopsis:

With more than 50,000 food products in the average supermarket, its no wonder shoppers feel confused and overwhelmed. How do they know what to buy to eat healthier and avoid packing on pounds? And as food prices skyrocket, how do consumers know theyre getting the best deals?

 
Luckily they have Eat This Not That! Supermarket Survival Guide - by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding - the ultimate authority on packaged foods, produce, and dairy and meat products found in our supermarkets. Newly revised and updated with all-new nutrition facts and information, this expanded edition acts as a trusted bodyguard, steering buyers away from nutritional danger zones and protecting them with the power of knowledge. On every page, readers will find easy-to-follow tips and nutrition facts that help them make the best choices for cutting calories, shedding pounds, and even saving money!

The books easy-to-carry format and highly visual design make it a perfect companion for the purse or shopping cart. And the information inside, based on extensive research and market reporting, will finally put the shopper in control of his or her familys diet and health.

Synopsis:

Much like the waistlines of America, the aisles of your grocery store are straining under the weight of too much food. There are more than 40,000 products lining the shelves of your local supermarket, and with every product comes a whole new host of inflated label claims: “zero trans fat!” “Cholesterol free!” “Good source of 9 vitamins and minerals!” The problem is these claims are just as bogus as the hyped-up foods theyre trying to sell. 

Thats where Eat This, Not That!  Supermarket Survival Guide comes in. Its your best weapon against the food industrys effort to obfuscate the truth about the food its selling. Building on the popular approach of the Eat This, Not That! book series, co-authors Dave Zinczenko and Matt Goudling have scoured the aisles of the supermarkets of America, and in so doing theyve discovered that two seemingly similar packages can house foods with vastly different nutritional profiles. Theyve also folded in all-new material that will help you pick the most nutrient-packed produce; the leanest, tastiest cuts of meat; and the least contaminated seafood at the fish counter. In this book youll also find:

· 11 Secrets the Food Industry Doesnt Want You to Know

· 20 Worst Packaged Foods in America

· Answers to The 5 Most Important Questions About Organic Food

· The Ultimate Sandwich Selector

· The Snack Matrix

· The Food Additive Glossary

· And the extended chapter, Drink This, Not That!

Any book that explains how to stock a pantry sensibly deserves five gold stars and a place on my bookshelf, or kitchen counter in this case. Eat This, Not That does this and so much more.

I have long stood in grocery aisles trying to discern the chem-lab labeling for the can in my hand. This book puts real purchasing and health powers into your shopping equation - for you. I dare say the book makes the money in your wallet greener and healthier to buy food with at the emporium.

Frankly, the food and grocery companies have the total advantage over shoppers. They spend hundreds of billions of dollars each year to convince us to Buy This, Not That based on their bottom line not your waist line. This book helps the consumer balance the equation with shopping carts of nutritious facts and recommendations.

The food companies put additives of unknown origins/purposes into our food, ostensibly to preserve its shelf life, artificially enhance its coloring or flavor, prevent congealing, and a hundred other reasons not necessarily good to eat.

How do we know what is good for us? Is the label pretty? Do we remember the ad? Do we buy it because our mothers bought it (and who admits to questioning their mothers)?

Arm yourself with Eat This, Not That. The grocery aisles are stocked against us. This book helps us win the Food War.
