Anyone have or have read the book(s) "Eat this not that" and/or "Supermarket Survival Guide"?

I had heard about these books and have glanced at them at the bookstore, I want to buy it just don't have the extra cash right now, I have been excercising, watching what I eat, and have lost weight, but would like to get these books to help me a little more. Anyone find these books helpful? Any comments or other ideas? Thanks in advance.

  • I too want to get the books eventually, but until I get them I found this!

    This is from Mens Health It doesn't have everything but it has quite a bit of info on there and is FREE! http://eatthis.menshealth.com

    This one will cost you about $10.00 for 6 months access and has a lot of info on it for you!

  • I have glanced at them too. I saw them on the Rachael Ray show and I really want to get them, I just have to get the money. Them seem very interesting. There were some surprising choices in them. I will get the original one and the one for kids.

  • GO TO THE LIBRARY AND CHECK IT OUT

    that totally deserved caps too, people need to stop buying books when they are free for three weeks at the library.

  • the library in my town sucks and they don't have it but thanks for the suggestion though I have gone to the library first to see if certain books are available and our library is lucky if they even have any books from 15 years ago

  • Does your library have a 'share' feature where they borrow books from other libraries? I'[ve had ok luck finding books I want on Ebay, but then again I'm on perpetual scan mode.

  • Yes it's worth buying. I bought it, read the whole thing cover to cover. Now I know what to order and what not to order when I go out to eat, it makes it SO much easier and healthier because some things you think are healthy are very far from it.

  • I have eat this, not that for both adults and kids, and I love them both. They have some really great idea in those books. Try looking on ebay for a used book sometimes you can get books really cheap.
