So anyway when I saw that the same authors came out with a SUPERMARKET version I insta-scooped it. (ok theres a kids version too, doesnt apply to me but why do kids have their own food anyway? There is no such thing as "kids' food" unless you count baby food. there are only foods MARKETED to kids. My kids will eat what i make for them..ok im getting off the subject.
This book is awesome it does an apples to apples comparison of all the stuff you buy at the grocery store. Obv any fresh fruits and veggies are good for you, but what about the healthiest tortilla or ketchup or ramen (because dammit sometimes a girl just wants ramen). Anyway I love this book. Its all about the better of two evils. I can still have cesar dressing but now I know which brand is the best for me or atleast know to avoid the one that is the worst. I can still have icecream and know its not that big a deficit! It doesnt control for flavor but for things that i cant tell a difference between anyway its well worth it (who knew there was such a caloric difference between english muffins, oatmeal, and yogurt).
Additionally, it had a website: http://www.menshealth.com/eatthis/index.php
Here are some highlights that was new to me.
