Did you know the average dinner from a chain restaurant costs nearly $35 a person and contains more than 1,200 calories? That's hard on your wallet and your waistline, and few people understand this better than the authors of Eat This, Not That! After years of helping consumers navigate America's daunting culinary landscape - and literally thousands of weight-loss success stories - Dave and Matt have finally turned their nutritional savvy to the place with the greatest impact - your kitchen. The hundreds of recipes contained inside this book will help you and your loved ones eliminate body fat, get in shape, and lead fitter, happier lives.

But make no mistake - this is no rice-and-tofu cookbook. The genius of Cook This, Not That! is that it teaches you how to save hundreds - sometimes thousands - of calories by recreating America's most popular restaurant dishes, including Outback Steakhouse's Roasted Filet with Port Wine Sauce, Uno Chicago Grill's Individual Deep Dish Pizza, and Chili's Fire Grilled Chicken Fajita. Alongside this you'll find other priceless advice, such as:

· The 37 Ways to Cook a Chicken Breast, A Dozen 10-Minute Pasta Sauces, The Ultimate Sandwich Matrix, and other on-the-go cooking tips.
· Scorecards that let you easily compare the nutritional quality of the carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that go into building every meal you eat.
· The truth about how seemingly healthy foods such as wheat bread, salmon, and low-fat snacks are secretly sabotaging your health.

This is a great book! It has information of what your eating, with wonderful choice of recipes and easy to follow directions. This is one book I'll be buying.

Healthy or not depends on your perspective! Either way, this is a great book for ideas and inspiration! The photographs are nicely done and the recipes I have tried so far have been pretty darn tasty. I also liked the size of this book. It was easy to flip through while waiting in line or on the bus etc.

Great book with lots of ideas for quick meals. Interesting nutritional information, tips and hints.

This book is full of great ideas and recipes, loosely connected to dishes you might like in popular restaurants. I wasn't looking at it as a weight loss solution, so I can't comment on that, but as a source of recipes and ideas I think it's great!

The comparisons of restaurant vs. homemade meals are useful, but the recipes themselves are bland and use a surprising amount of butter, bacon, cheese, white flour, and white sugar - hardly healthy choices. They also call for many processed ingredients: i.e., the pizza recipes call for Boboli premade crusts, the pasta recipes call for wonton skins, and the Chicken Pot Stickers recipe actually calls for 24 frozen potstickers.
