Book: Eat this not that!

Recommended Posts

FH bought this great book ( it has pictures!) and it tells you which is the healthier choice at some resturaunts. My example for you is that it is better to get a ham, egg and cheese sandwich at Starbucks than a bran muffin! 380 calories more for the "harmless" muffin.

 

Amazon.com: Eat This Not That: Thousands of Simple Food Swaps That Can Save You 10, 20, 30 Pounds-or More!: Books: David Zinczenko,Matt Goulding

 

It also goes over some other important information like which candy is lower in calories. I would encourage you to look into it. Oh and FYI-you can finally find out about chipotles calorie count...eeeck.

I will have to check this out.

 

Chipotle is so bad for you, if you eat the burrito bol is is like 1300 calories, and then if you eat a regular burrito it is like plus 900 or something crazy!! but it is so yummy...

That's awesome. I love this kind of stuff -- but it only makes me realize that my favorite foods are oh-so-icky for me!!

 

I just got the book that Jean-Marcus recommended -- "The Abs Diet for Women."

 

My trainer says not to think there is truly an "Abs diet" ... lol ... but the book is pretty interesting and makes sense in a lot of ways.

 

It also gives you 12 MUST HAVE things for you fridge or pantry.

 

So, I am going grocery shopping this afternoon!

Oh, I just checked out the link and this book is by the same author as the Abs Diet book I was talking about in the above post.

I like the way he writes in the Abs Diet so I will definitely check out the "Eat This" book too.

baja fresh isn't much better! Well it is a littyle better but still - holy calorie counts!

Baja Fresh

 

I can't believe at Chipotle that the tortilla all by itself is 330 calories and 9 grams of fat! I mean what is it made out of - 100% pure lard?
