Drink This Not That! by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding

The fastest way to lose weight isn't on the treadmill. And it's not by counting calories, either. Believe it or not, the easiest, fastest, and longest lasting way to lose weight doesn't even involve watching your food intake: It's all about watching what you drink.

See, if you're like the average American, today you will drink about 450 calories. That's a quarter of the calories you're supposed to eat in an entire day--and then, of course, you'll eat plenty of calories, too!

But now there's Drink This, Not That!, the breakthrough new book from the editors of Eat This, Not That! New research reveals that it's not just our food that's making America fat--it's the beverages we wash it all down with. But you can strip away calories and fat--up to 23 pounds this year alone--simply by changing your choices of drinks (and still eating all your favorite foods)!

Did you know:
*One bottle of Sunkist orange drink has more sugar than four packs of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
*A large Grape Expectations II Smoothie from Smoothie King has more sugar than 13 Twinkies!
*If you turn your large latte into a large cappuccino, you could lose more than 9 pounds this year!
*A White Chocolate Mocha from Starbucks has more than 20 times as many calories as their regular coffee!

With this illustrated guide to hundreds of drink options--and eye-opening nutrition secrets for fast and permanent weight loss--you'll make the smartest choices for you and your family, every time.

Additional features in Drink This, Not That! include:
* The 20 Worst Drinks in America
* The Truth About Bottled Water
* The Truth About High Fructose Corn Syrup
* The Anatomy of America's Most Popular Beverages
* Energy Drinks: Energy or Enemy?
* The Ultimate Smoothie Selector
* And more!

It let's you know all the garbage you're actually putting into your body and what people sell to make a buck. I bet you didn't know that Starbucks was high on the list? How many will continue buying it just to carry around that cup as if other's really care?
Next time you go to the store make sure you look in the back and look at everything it contains before you actually purchase it. You'd be surprised at the sodium, sugar, trans fat, cholesterol and all the other goodies it contains. But then again people don't stop to read.
It amazes me how I see people just grab things that are so unhealthy for them and take off. It's no wonder the United States has become a nation of obese people that lack self control and hate exercising. They even drive their cars to the mail box. How tragic!

i very like the part about the Wines!

Love the photographs on every page and easy to read snapshots. SHOCKED at how many calories are in some store-bought drinks/beverages etc. If you spend much money on beverages out (I don't), this may give you some helpful ideas about what drinks would be healthier choices/substitutions.

I'm sticking with plain old tea at 2 calories per cup, hot or iced.

I found this book interesting but most of the drinks in it are not available where I live. So it wasn't very practical for me. It would be a good resource for someone living in the US.

Another great book from the This-Not-That series. My only beef (with the series in general) is that it is American. But still a great source
