Eat This, Not That: Review
Eat This, Not That: Experts' Views continued...
Even if you make wiser food choices, you may not lose weight unless your total calories for the day are cut and exercise is part of the plan, Rosenbloom says.
Use the book as a tool to work some of the foods into your healthy diet.
"If you choose too many of the 'eat this' choices, you may not get enough fiber, vitamins, or minerals and too much sodium, sugar, fat, and calories, because most of the choices are highly processed. A healthy weight-loss diet contains lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and unprocessed foods," Johnson says.
Eat This, Not That: Food for Thought
This colorful book can help guide you toward food choices that are healthier -- most of the time -- but not necessarily toward the best choices for weight loss.
Contrary to the comment on the back cover, you cannot "enjoy all your favorite foods and watch the pounds disappear." Losing weight requires cutting calories, following a healthy diet, and exercising. If you are looking for a weight loss diet, consult a registered dietitian to customize a plan for you that includes some of your favorite foods on a calorie-controlled plan.
