First off, I must tell you this is a non-Christian title. But when I stumbled across it, I just had to pick up a copy! Not only is it fascinating, but it is informative and encouraging as well.
I've battled with my weight since the age of three. In fact, someone somewhere left me a nasty comment once about my being overweight and claiming to be a Christian (now, THAT is messed up!).
Praise God, I've lost 35 pounds, and while I still have a few more to go, I feel so much lighter and like I fit in my own skin! And I did this without mean spirited people pushing me...just loving support:-)
Part of losing weight is making better choices, and that is what "Eat This, Not That" is all about. David gives us side by side comparisons of some of our favorite fast foods and it is startling sometimes to see the differences!
In addition to the side by sides, he offers eight foods we need to eat and ten foods to avoid, tackles restaurants and grocery stores, and even has a section for kids and their health.
Now, I haven't poured over this entire book page by page by page, and it's published by Men's Health, so I can't vouch for every entry. But what I've seen makes this a great book to browse through and learn from.
Therefore, I'm giving "Eat This, Not That" four out of five bookmarks, with a tiny scale as a charm...but it doesn't work, because we're more than a number on the scale. I measure my success by how baggy my clothing is getting, and how tight I have to pull my belt:-)
Want to win a copy? Leave me a comment with your most tempting food that DOESN'T help your health, and I'll pick a winner on April 1st!
