In Eat it to Beat it, Zinczenko wastes no time in shocking you with the ingredients you eat on a daily basis. He promises to educate you on how to lose weight while still eating your favorite foods. The core premise of his two hour plus narrative is to get you to make better choices in the supermarket but especially in chain restaurants. For example, instead of consuming and Bloomin' Onion at OutBack Steakhouse, order the stack of eggplant and will save yourself from eating one of the worst contemporary dietary disasters. To summarize this is more like eat this and not that novella -- sometimes its better to eat a cookie than to eat fish loaded with trans fats.
There is no doubt what he writes is true. This book will appeal to those of you who find yourselves in chain restaurants and camping out in the frozen food and chips isle at the supermarket. It does not address those who know a lot about food and nutrition and are refining their skills. This is more about making smart choices or often a less dumb choice.
I am a foodie and I found nothing new or exciting in this book. I suppose if you are firing down dinner a day at Cheescake Factory his advice will help you lose weight -- sort of. I will give it style points for being short and amusing but series advice is not there. I say make the choice and pass, this one has too many trans-facts.
