Did you know:
*One bottle of Sunkist orange drink has more sugar than four packs of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups!

*Choosing Breyer’s Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups Ice Cream over Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream will save you 200 calories per scoop!

*At T.G.I.Friday’s, a Santa Fe Chopped Salad carries a whopping 1,800 calories—the equivalent of three Pepperoni Personal Pan Pizzas from Pizza Hut! (You call that a salad???)

*Choosing Prime Rib over Baby Back Ribs at Outback will save you more than 2,000 calories!

*You can save nearly 500 calories and more than 20 grams of fat just by ordering your banana split at Dairy Queen instead of Baskin-Robbins?

* A serving of SpagettiOs Orginal has less than 1/2 the calories and 1 gram less of fat than a serving of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese!

The “Eat This, Not That!” series of books by David Zinczenko (editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine and editorial director of Women’s Health magazine) are super easy to read, eye-opening and chock-full of great helpful tips from grocery shopping to cooking, eating out at restaurants and drinking for better nutrition, which leads to better health – for the entire family!  It’s simply designed to help you make smart food choices easier, no matter where you’re making them – grocery store to restaurant.  It’s visual and pairs classic food swaps, and helps you cut hundreds—or even thousands—of calories from your daily food intake, without feeling like you’ve deprived yourself.

I was able to borrow several of the books from my local public library!  With these healthy hints and the support structure of participating in the Weight Watchers Momentum Program, over the past 11 months, I was able to shed over 40 pounds and bring my previously high cholesterol well into the normal range!  So check it out and start making healthier eating choices for you and your family.
