Eat This Not that, A Nice Nutrition Tool

9781605294612_0I recently renewed my subscription to Men’s Health and at that time an add popped up for a book called Eat This Not That. It is written by David Zinczenko, the editor-in-cheif for Mens Health and Matt Goulding, the food and nutrtion editor for Men’s Health. I thought the book looked interesting so I went ahead and ordered it.

The premise behind the book is to compare choices you can make in various types of foods. It goes from general topics such as the Best and Worst Foods in America to specific topics like food additives and foods for your cholesterol and blood sugar.

The book is laid out nicely and gives you grades for many popular restaurants. Then in many different categories it breaks down the best and worst that you will find. I like how direct these guys are and the fact they take pride in the fact they have made changes in the world of nutrition. This is a great read that I highly recommend you pick up. The amount of useful tips in it makes it worth the small cost. I have been working with young athletes for many years now and I am always looking for additional tools to use with them to help them make better choices. This book works great since it is not telling them they cant eat at certain places, it is telling them the best thing to eat at those places.

    I agree. Telling people what they CAN eat is much more effective than listing what they cannot.
