Eat All Your Favorite Foods--And Watch the Pounds Disappear!
Two years after the runaway success of the original Eat This, Not That!, co-authors Matt and Dave noticed an interesting trend: Restaurants were actually cleaning up their menus! With consumers avoiding the country's worst calorie offenses, some restaurants saw fit to remove them from the menu entirely. Consider this:

- After Chili's Awesome Blossom took the runner-up spot on the "Worst Foods in America" list, Chili's removed the appetizer from their menu entirely.
- Pepperidge Farm followed suit after being placed on the Worst Foods list and discontinued their Roasted Chicken Pot Pie.
- When Jamba Juice earned a citation on the Worst Drinks in America list, the chain stopped serving the largest size of their Chocolate Moo'd smoothie and recommitted itself to becoming one of the healthiest restaurant chains in the nation.

The problem is, as the old crop of calorie atrocities were eliminated, a new army of gut-bombs emerged in their place. That's why the authors created Eat This, Not That! 2010, to empower you with the knowledge to battle a food industry bent on sabotage your waistline with unwanted and unnecessary calories. In this new-and-expanded edition, you'll find fresh restaurant and supermarket comparisons, an encyclopedia of food packaging lies, and the invaluable guide to eating healthy on a budget. Essentially you'll learn how to make effortless food swaps that will help you strip away 10, 20, 30 pounds or more.

Did you know:
- Choosing Prime Rib over Baby Back Ribs at Outback will save you more than 2,000 calories?
- You can save nearly 500 calories and more than 20 grams of fat just by ordering your banana split at Dairy Queen instead of Baskin-Robbins?
- A Stouffer's White Meat Chicken Pot Pie has as much saturated fat as 6 scoops of ice cream? (Choose our alternative and save more than 900 calories!)

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Kick your metabolism into gear with a diet program that uses the fat-burning power of food to help you lose up to 20 pounds in 28 days

"This is not a fad diet. It's a medically proven method of food as medicine to fight obesity, cure chronic illness, and heal a broken metabolism."--Jacqueline Fields, M.D.

Hailed as "the metabolism whisperer," Haylie Pomroy reminds us that food is not the enemy but medicine needed to rev up your sluggish, broken-down metabolism to turn your body into a fat-burning furnace.

On this plan you're going to eat a lot--three full meals and at least two snacks a day--and you're still going to lose weight. What you're not going to do is count a single calorie or fat gram, or go carb-free or ban entire food groups. Instead, you're going to rotate what you eat throughout each week according to a simple and proven plan carefully designed to induce precise physiological changes that will set your metabolism on fire.

In four weeks you'll not only see the weight fall off, but don't be surprised to find your cholesterol drop, blood sugar stabilize, energy increase, sleep improve, and stress melt away as well.

Complete with four weeks of meal plans and more than fifty recipes--including vegetarian, organic, and gluten-free options--this is the silver bullet for the chronic dieter who has tried every fad diet and failed, for the first-time dieter attempting to boost their metabolism, and for anyone who wants to naturally and safely eat his or her way to a skinnier, healthier self.

Fat Chance

Fat Chance

$16.00
More Info

The landmark New York Times best seller that reveals how the explosion of sugar in our diets has created an obesity epidemic, and what we can do to save ourselves.

Robert Lustig is at the forefront of war against sugar -- showing us that it's toxic, it's addictive, and it's everywhere because the food companies want it to be. His 90-minute YouTube video Sugar: The Bitter Truth has been viewed more than 7 million times. Now, in this landmark book, he documents the science and the politics that have led to personal misery and public crisis -- the pandemic of obesity and chronic disease--over the last thirty years.

In the late 1970s, when the U.S. government declared that we needed to get the fat out of our diets, the food industry responded by pumping in more sugar to make food more palatable (and more salable), and by removing the fiber to make food last longer on the shelf. The result has been a perfect storm for our health, disastrously altering our biochemistry to make us think we're starving, drive our eating habits out of our control, and turn us into couch potatoes. If we cannot control how we eat, it's because of the catastrophic excess of sugar in our diet--the resulting hormonal imbalances have rewired our brains!

To help us lose weight and recover our health, Lustig presents strategies we can each use to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward, and stress, as well as societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation. With scientific rigor and even a little humor, Fat Chance categorically proves that a calorie is not a calorie, and takes that knowledge to its logical conclusion--an overhaul of the global food system.
