Book Description

Sept. 14 2012
We all want to eat well, cut calories, and keep our fabulous selves, well, fabulous! But with all our commitments, from work to hobbies, side projects, and the extracurricular activities of our kids, we don’t always have time to make healthy meals at home. Fast food, birthday parties at family-friendly restaurants, and rushed mornings with breakfast-at-the-coffee-shop-next-door-to work are all realities of our busy lives. Realities, yes, but guilt-ridden and unhealthy experiences, no. By making slight changes to what we order at restaurants, coffee shops, and fast-food places, we can cut down our daily calories and reduce fat. Featured on the popular TV morning shows Breakfast Television and CityLine, Swap It or Drop It shows you how to make informed choices about what you put into your family’s bodies. Swap It or Drop It includes more than 65 of the most popular restaurants in the nation (including A&W, Tim Hortons, Domino’s, East Side Mario’s, the Keg, and White Spot). Superstar healthy cook and author Rose Reisman tells you what to “drop” off your ordering plan, the healthier option to “swap” it for, and why the swap works. This book will have you sharing your own Swap It tips in no time!

3.0 out of 5 stars More Bookish Thoughts... Dec 29 2012
By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER
Rose Reisman's "Choose It & Lose It" gathers nutritional information from a variety of Canadian restaurant offerings and suggests one main "choose" option and one main "lose" option. Then, Reisman adds three additional items under each category, often including a children's item, appetizer, dessert, snack or other meal. She certainly provides harrowing information, exposing appetizers containing 75+g of fat and salads containing two days' worth of sodium. She also debunks some common dining out myths: that chicken is healthier than beef, that tuna contains less fat than eggs and that vegetables are always "safe."

But the book does contain some discrepancies. At McDonald's, for example, Reisman "chooses" the Big Mac at 540 calories, 29 grams of fat (10 saturated) and 1020 mg of sodium and "loses" the Angus Deluxe at 780 calories, 47 grams of fat (17 saturated) and 1660 mg sodium. Fair enough, but then she also "loses" the McChicken Sandwich at 470 calories, 27 grams of fat (5 saturated) and 790 mg sodium even though it weighs in healthier than the Big Mac. She gets around this by labelling the McChicken as a "snack." So, which McDonald's sandwiches constitute meals and which don't?

Obviously, Reisman can only list a limited number of options from each restaurant, none of which may be the establishment's healthiest choice. Ultimately, this book serves as a helpful beginner's guide to navigating restaurant lingo but, for the best nutritional information on specific venues, I would take to their websites.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eating out is so bad! March 18 2013

This book is very insightful. I bought it because of the author's regular appearance on Breakfast TV. It is mindboggling how much fat and salt are in resaurant foods. Some of her comparisons make your head spin.

It also highlights that many "healthier" options are not so and that even the "choose it" meals are the lesser of two evils.

Good coffee table book.
