Product Description

Review

Readers Love ETNT:
“The book was so easy to use. And I said this is a no brainer. I have nothing to do but to go to the grocery store and look at this book. And I dropped 35 pounds within a year. My husband used to call me his ‘full sized woman.’ Of course, he doesn’t say that any more and he can’t keep his hands off me!” – Darlene, ETNT reader.
 
“This book is now a reference book I look at and have fun with, plus I think it has helped me drop a couple of pounds extra with my exercising in the last couple of weeks.”
 
“This book has saved me thousands of extra calories and I did not sacrifice one thing.”
 
“This is a great read and helps you make better choices when eating out to shopping at the grocery store. As I read I did not realize what a small change in your choice could make. I've already lost 7lbs and am very pleased.”

Format: Paperback
There's a couple of books in this series and this one is meant for what to buy and not to buy at the grocery market. Although there's no such thing as an exercises-less diet this book helps you find the foods you LOVE by showing you the calories for one product (ie. McCain Pizza vs digiorno pizza). Which one has less calories. It is very detailed and very descriptive. Covers all grocery store isles. One complaint? It doesn't cover store brand names from stores like Superstore, Safeway, Coop, Sobeys, etc. but find the best product to buy and then physically compare to store name brand if you want to save more money.

In this book, it's all about being a discerning consumer when you are in the grocery store. It's about knowing what to look out for and what to avoid. The author of this book has complied an excellent array of good tasting but not high calorie foods that anyone who wishes to lose weight can eat without worrying. It's a great addition to any weight loss program. I also would recommend Fatass No More! How I Lost Weight and Still Ate Cheeseburgers and Fries.

Format: Paperback
Food and beverage marketers focus on what causes you to buy more. If you are like me, you are attracted to labels that tout things like "low fat," "natural," "multi grain," and "light." Let the buyer beware. Those labels often cover up for high calorie, high sugar, high salt, high trans fat, and high glycemic items that aren't good for your health or your waist line.

In simple terms, David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding point out the advantages of getting rid of extra calories, sugar, salt, trans fat, and high glycemic ingredients where you can have a healthy, tasty alternative (almost always).

After the general introduction, the book dives into a specific look at how to evaluate foods and beverages at the supermarket, produce, meat, fish, refrigerated foods, pantry staples, snacks, sweets, frozen items, beverages, and ways to spend less. In those sections, you get an explanation of what to look for and what to avoid. Then, one page of "better" items is compared to one page of "worse" items. The differences in content are pretty large in some cases, and not so large in others. This gives you a sense of where to pick your fights. The book ends up with some recipe and meal ideas.

It also made me realize that I need to find stores that stock these healthier (and yes, they are often more expensive) items. Many of the "better" choices are ones that I don't remember seeing a store.

Like all brief books, this one has weaknesses. It doesn't mention carcinogens, for instance. Some "natural" foods like alfalfa sprouts have natural carcinogens in them while some "not so natural" foods like baked bread have anti-carcinogens in them through the preservatives used.

This book is nicely put together and has lots of interesting tips and facts about foods you commonly buy. Not all the products are available in Canada but I found that I got the idea of the points illustrated in the book. It has already helped me make better choices when I go grocery shopping. The book is easy to read and you can pick it up on any page and get something useful from it.

As a 22 year old, I've got to say this book is a blessing! Takes all the guess work out of finding healthy foods on the go, and will definitely help me build healthy habits.
