“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.

P.S - WINDSOR (and I'm sure other brands of) SALT HAS SUGAR IN IT..(It's in the ingredients, but NOT on the nutrition facts)..
It is not too much unlike that grocery shopping in the United States today. You come into a supermarket bulging with products all very colorfully marketed making sometimes unfounded claims as to their health benefits. It is wise, therefore, to come armed with the knowledge that what one buys IS really healthy for them not something a marketer told them to get them to buy their goods. This IS the proverbial SUPERMARKET SURVIVAL GUIDE one should read before entering a store and keeping handy while still in the store.
The book starts with Chapter 1 "Getting to Know and Love the Supermarket." Within that chapter the author lists 11 Secrets the Food Industry Doesn't Want You to Know and the 20 Worst Packaged Foods in America. It is helpful to know, for starters, what kind of food one should consider junk before going on to food shopping for healthy products. Chapter 2 "The Produce Aisle" is simply lovely.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
