Book of the Week 10/20/14


In a society where obesity is at epidemic levels despite endless shillings of latest fad diets, fitness trends, “newly discovered” diet supplements, and other extreme measures to be “perfect,” David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding’s ever-popular book, Eat This, Not That!: The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution (Rodale Books, Updated Edition, 2012) continues to offer a weight loss solution with long-term results…all without dieting, but by doing both some label reading, making gradual changes, and using bits of common sense.

This book was the centerpiece of a workshop I attended last week, and I was both surprised and impressed on what it had to offer.Eat This, Not That’s! latest edition has few revisions from its previous release, but continues to offer stunning and useful details on what foods are better to consume, complete with supermarket, restaurant, food preparation methods, and easy-to follow advice on better food choices.

While not all food featured in this book is not deemed “healthy” by any aspect, there are better selections on traditionally “forbidden” items that we can still enjoy while taking off weight in a gradual, less risky manner.

Who needs to spend money on dangerous diets that produce only short-term results and can be risky to our overall health when the real not-so-secret way of making smart choices and a few lifestyle changes are far better paths? The guidance in Eat This, Not That!

Other books in this series include Drink This, Not That!, Cook This, Not That!, Grill This, Not That!, and Eat This, Not That! Supermarket Survival Guide, all which are complimentary to the original Eat This, Not That!.

With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas around the corner, what better ways to get started on keeping unwanted holiday pounds at bay?
