Eat This Not That

Anybody ever read Eat This Not That? My mom bought it, and I was looking through it. It's actually really good ! The book pretty much tells you how to cut calories without really dieting. There are sections in it that tells you what healthy dishes to get at restaurants or healthy foods at the supermarket. It's really interesting to see how certain products you think are healthy, really aren't. But it's kinda weird to see how fatty some dishes at chain restaurants are. Trust me, after reading that book, I'm never drinking another Strawberry Coolatta from Dunkin Donut again lol.
The persons of their world lived in an atmosphere of faint implications and pale delicacies, and the fact that he and she understood each other without a word seemed to the young man to bring them nearer than any explanation would have done.

Re: Eat This Not That

Hey twilightfann;

 

I read this book in 2007 when I first came out. The book has a lot of great insight. What is interesting about Eat This Not That! is that it sheds a lot of truth on casual dining restaurants as they have higher calorie meals than fast food joints such as McDonalds or Jack in the Box or Burger King, and the like.

 

Its a great book if you want to get inspired to start calorie counting. The only think i did not like about the book is that the writers try to put together a theme of what one should eat and what one should not eat based on this book.
