I just want to give a thumbs up recommendation to the authors David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding for the complete series of books along the lines of "Eat This, Not That." Here on the DC Book Club I found the following testimonials to the series and wanted to share the page because there are several books in the series.

I am planning to start collecting the books because while I had gotten them all from the library to browse there, there's just so much information that they are what I would consider "keeper" books. There is a book club that I will be getting them from for like $1 each and I can fulfill the obligation by buying one at half price and the other at full price and I'll be done with the book club, saving a great deal of money along the way.

The "Eat This, Not That" series provides a lot of information on products, restaurants, vending machine options based on calories, fat, protein, carbs, and sodium. The recommendations are not entirely diabetic friendly but point out some of the variances between two similar products and some of the variances are mind blowing.

I just wanted to familiarize others with the book series, open up a discussion for others to give good or bad testimonials, and direct you to the book club discussions which have been started.

For those who haven't explored the Diabetic Connect Book Club I've found some excellent book titles that I either have read or plan to read. You can access the Book Club with the icon to the left of your screen.

There is a certain healthy sounding cereal by Kelloggs which the authors point out has more sugar per serving than a serving of Oreo cookies. It is important, as consumers and diners, to read labels and practice portion controls. Some restaurant entrees (even kids portions) will give you more calories per meal than you should have daily. If the saying "you are what you eat" is true, that explains why I'm fat. I think I'm also part French and part high fructose corn syrup!

oh lala…me like! I am going to have to add this to my wish list for Christmas and my birthday. I am going to have to venture out on this for sure. Since I now have to deal with my middle daughter mysteriously having high cholesterol and low good cholesterol. Along with losing a few pounds with my youngest son. This might just put some other options on the table for them. Besides what I am already doing right now. They might like this too. WOW!!!
