Eat All Your Favorite FoodsAnd Watch the Pounds Disappear!
Two years after the runaway success of the original Eat This, Not That!
, co-authors Matt and Dave noticed an interesting trend: Restaurants were actually cleaning up their menus! With consumers avoiding the countrys worst calorie offenses, some restaurants saw fit to remove them from the menu entirely. Consider this: · After Chilis Awesome Blossom took the runner-up spot on the “Worst Foods in America” list, Chilis removed the appetizer from their menu entirely.
· Pepperidge Farm followed suit after being placed on the Worst Foods list and discontinued their Roasted Chicken Pot Pie.
· When Jamba Juice earned a citation on the Worst Drinks in America list, the chain stopped serving the largest size of their Chocolate Mood smoothie and recommitted itself to becoming one of the healthiest restaurant chains in the nation. The problem is, as the old crop of calorie atrocities were eliminated, a new army of gut-bombs emerged in their place. Thats why the authors created Eat This, Not That! 2010, to empower you with the knowledge to battle a food industry bent on sabotage your waistline with unwanted and unnecessary calories. In this new-and-expanded edition, youll find fresh restaurant and supermarket comparisons, an encyclopedia of food packaging lies, and the invaluable guide to eating healthy on a budget. Essentially youll learn how to make effortless food swaps that will help you strip away 10, 20, 30 pounds or more. Did you know:
· Choosing Prime Rib over Baby Back Ribs at Outback will save you more than 2,000 calories?
· You can save nearly 500 calories and more than 20 grams of fat just by ordering your banana split at Dairy Queen instead of Baskin-Robbins?
· A Stouffers White Meat Chicken Pot Pie has as much saturated fat as 6 scoops of ice cream? (Choose our alternative and save more than 900 calories!)
What the restaurant industry is saying about Eat, This Not That! 2010:
“Eat This, Not That! provides its readers with a great service. Romano's Macaroni Grill evaluated every item on its menu for flavor and nutritional responsibility. In fact, one of the previous recipes that needed dramatic improvement, a Scallop Salad, appeared on the Eat This, Not That! segment of the March 9, 2009, Today Show. An improved Seared Sea Scallops & Fresh Spinach Salad recipe was introduced shortly thereafter in June 2009, that contains 85% less Saturated Fat and 66% fewer Calories.”
--Romano's Macaroni Grill - CEO Brad Blum
“Eat This, Not That! has always been an industry leader in providing healthy eating/healthy living advice to diners. In order to satisfy customer demand for great tasting, on-the-go food for a healthy lifestyle, Jamba Juice has introduced several new menu options in 2009 including slow cooked oatmeal...and Grab 'n Go wraps, salads and sandwiches that contain no artificial flavors, no preservatives and no high fructose corn syrup. With Eat This, Not That! 2010, youll never diet, never go hungryand never worry about your weight again!”

“David has a whole bunch of these books. This is the brand new 2010 edition. I think these books are brilliant.

Thats the premise of this.”
