Dewey Decimal. The New York Times. Retrieved I came to this book by way of Eat This Not That! Raise a Lean, Healthy, Happy Child! I was pretty riveted by that book, mainly because the amount of horrible things in fast food and pre-packaged foods for kids is practically indecent. So when my library emailed me to let me know that Eat This Not That: I wasn't really eating a Big Mac at the time, but one of the things that I learned in this book is that if I was going to, that would be a better option for me at calories and 29 grams of fat than a Whopper with cheese calories and 47 grams of fat.
This book is full of information like that, and its point isn't necessarily to educate you about the healthiest foods, but rather the healthier options. There are sections on fast food, supermarket foods and drinking, among others, and in each foods are compared to each other, with the reasoning behind the choices explained.
It's a pretty good book to check out if you're looking to improve your diet, and depending on how much you already know about nutrition you can take a little or a lot of knowledge away from it.
You can learn about things like: Grill flavor: The "flavor" is actually partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Or that a bean burrito from Taco Bell isn't that bad for you calories, 9 g fat. If you ask for it "fresco" style they'll replace the cheese and sauces with chunky tomato salsa, which cuts even more fat and calories.
Fresco style. Who knew? A single tablespoon of soy sauce has over 1, mg of sodium. But did you know you're not really supposed to dip your sushi in soy sauce, anyway? At a good sushi place, the chef will serve the sushi exactly as it's supposed to be eaten. Or use a low-sodium soy sauce. Here's a good one. Did you know that regular Oscar Mayer bacon is better for you than Oscar Mayer turkey bacon?
They both have the same amount of calories and fat, but their turkey bacon has more sodium. Way to throw us one from left field, Oscar! Tricky, tricky, tricky.
Did you know that Hellmann's makes a cholesterol-free mayonnaise? It uses canola oil instead of soybean oil, and has half the calories and fat of the original. That's one of the products to which I'll be switching.
I could go on and on about what I learned from this book, but I think what's important is that everyone who reads it will take away something different. But I think everyone who reads it will learn some pretty painless ways to improve their diet and nutrition, and in this day and age I think it's a good thing to arm yourself with this kind of information.
It will help you to make healthier choices. Even at McDonald's. View all 6 comments. Feb 27, Erin rated it it was amazing. I've read lots of diet books over the years. I can spout the downfalls of Atkins and South Beach Diet in my sleep, and there was a two-month period in my early 20s that I ate pretty much nothing but rice and steamed vegetables.
But diets like that aren't practical, especially when you're a working mother also trying to sneak healthful foods in on two preschoolers, and trying to omit food dyes and boost omega 3 foods for the kiddo with ADHD. So forgive me for a minute as I do a happy dance for fin I've read lots of diet books over the years.
Without sounding cheesy, this is really a book that can change the way you eat, and most importantly, the way you shop. The best thing about this book is that it includes name brand recommendations and photographs of the food packaging, so there's not a lot of guesswork about what foods are preferred choices and why they are better.
Think turkey breast is turkey breast? Guess again. This book will help you pick the brand that's the most nutritionally sound. Another favorite feature -- the photo illustrations of the "perfect fridge". The author has assembled the best of the bunch in every category just to make your shopping list building a little easier. I love this book. I got it from the library, and fully plan to download it and use it as a reference moving forward.
It's common sense nutrition information and advice for real people that are trying to make the healthiest choice possible and wade through the sea of marketing and confusing product packaging. I'd call it a must read for anyone that eats. Jan 26, Dani rated it did not like it Shelves: This book is terrible. I read this book during a slow day at the bookstore where I work, and I was disgusted. A book that suggests you can lose weight by making the giant lifestyle decision to eat a Big Mac instead of a Whopper is mostly likely authored by Satan.
It also offers genius advice on which entree at Chipotle packs the least calories, as well as the healthiest menu item at TGI Friday's.
Honestly, if you eat fast food everyday, switching from the fillet o'fish to white meat McNuggets is This book is terrible. Honestly, if you eat fast food everyday, switching from the fillet o'fish to white meat McNuggets is probably the least of your worries. If you thought your cholesterol level was too low on your last doctor's visit, or if you really don't want to live past 50, this is the book for you.
This book is great for anyone who wants to "diet" by not dieting at all.
Also great for those who have no desire to shed the extra layer of blubber that keeps us so wonderfully warm and toasty in the winter. Jun 18, Emily rated it it was amazing. This book was good and bad. If this guy was writing as a secret advocate of the fast food industry, it totally worked on me.
All I want to eat is fries and ice cream and pasta and burgers and taco salads. The pictures in the book were very tempting. I liked it the most that it does not tell you what NOT to eat, but what to eat instead. You can pick and choose because it gives you good and bad choices that actually correspond with each other.
I am not interested in that. I am interesting in feeling some hot, crispy, salty fries in my mouth. My stomach will just have to deal with it, filling or not.
So anyways, this book subs in healthy stuff that is actually close-ish to the unhealthy. Also, the book is not exclusively for certain diets, like no-carbs.
It is a general guide to making better choices. It compares sodium where sodium is a problem, for example. So it is a little bit of everything for everyone. And because seriously, a diet has got to accommodate eating out. Such is life.
And in addition to the restaurant stuff it does comparisons of stuff like salad dressing, breads, cookies, etc. I am craving fries. And curly fries. And a Slurpee, which is weird because Slurpees were not even in this book. It would be nice to have a pamphlet version of the book or something to take with me wherever I go.
A lot of the stuff that was a bad choice surprised me a lot.
Also, toward the back of the book where it does product comparisons, there were a few products that were repeated. Ok, except they were not repeated exclusively as good or bad choices. Like Kraft Zesty Italian. We had great fun with this book as a family. So much so that I went out and bought 2 additional versions. Rick and I keep shooting each other looks and shuddering over shared memories of dinners at Outback Steak House where we would split an Onion Blossom without leaving so much as a stray crumb of breading Turns out that in so doing we were consuming over calories each It also explains why so many o We had great fun with this book as a family.
It also explains why so many of my days ended with me in tears lamenting over not being able to zip my size 16 jeans and pushing the old size 2 jeans further and further toward the abyss that is the back of the closet. My kids were fascinated by the numbers because they are stone cold nerds and have actually started making note of their food choices produce colors and snack portions. Today, Henry asked if we could eat at Johnny Rocket's and we asked him what grade he thought the book would give it he decided that burgers at home would be a better way to go.
When I served up sweet potato rounds and kale chips on the side, mentioning the colors and nutrition, he munched away I won't say happily, but without commentary. That's all I have to say about that. Also mysteriously absent from the stores by that time? Thong bodysuits to wear to aerobics.
Go figure. View 1 comment. Jul 05, Carmyn rated it liked it Shelves: As I strive to alter my eating habits and head toward a healthier lifestyle, I find myself more and more attracted to things like this book.
It features eight chapters of full color, info packed pages--each chapter, with a different emphasis. The first identifies 8 foods you should eat every day and 20 to avoid at all costs.
Yes to yogurt and black beans probably not together! Even though my community doesn't have many of the restaurants in the book, it's the WHY that I find particularly helpful. Here's one thing I learned--mayo is the devil. Chapter three offers a menu decoder that provides strategies for eating right at any restaurant. Avoid taco salads, soy sauce, and iceberg lettuce not much nutrition in the iceberg variety.
Chapter four provides a holiday survival guide. Chapter five takes you through different products you might download at a supermarket.
Avoid the Lean Cuisine butternut squash ravioli. Chapter six provides a healthy beverage guide. Chapter seven suggests the right foods for dealing with all kinds of situations: Peppermint tea helps with stress. Spinach salad is good for the sad. Chapter eight has suggestions for kids.
I found that while even though many of the specifics for restaurants don't apply the healthy principles behind their recommendations and warnings still did.
This book was shocking and unreal.
