By the author of the multi-million copy bestselling Eat This, Not That book series, an invaluable, illustrated, and expert tour of the best and worst foods (brand names and restaurant offerings alike) to help you address six common health concerns--from weight to heart health--complete with fun facts, outrageous label claims, health-promoting (and detracting) ingredient combinations, and recipes for maximizing the health quotient of your meals.
Some foods are good for you, and some are clearly bad for you. In either case, food packaging and menu descriptions would often have us believe that everything is healthier than it actually is! With Dave Zinczenko's signature intelligence, wit, and eye for presenting information in way that gets people talking, Eat It to Beat It will enlighten and entertain as it tours the average American diet, explaining the nutritional impact of foods on six common health concerns: weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, brain health, and mood. Complete with photographic spreads of brand-specific "bests" and "worsts," fascinating information about ingredients you thought you understood, amazing true stories of people who discovered dramatically better health through better eating, and even delicious recipes for maximizing the health quotient of your meals, this compulsively-readable and dynamically-visual book will arm readers with the knowledge to make better choices for their own health.
