Eat This, Not That Diet


Eat This, Not That Diet. This diet can be called in many ways. The pseudo diet: The diet that correspond to free will. Or the Calorie checks and compares diet.

This is not the conventional diet per se. Experts from Men's Health Magazines created a book that talks about food, and this is how this diet strategy "Eat This, Not That Diet," started. It is called also a pseudo diet because it is not a true diet. It is a book on food that contains stock of advisories one might consider taking in, given the informed choices suggested. In eating out, for example, or grocery shopping or calorie counting, facts and figures are laid out in the book, and once one picked the right choice that fits, and abide to it, most likely one will lose weight.

Unlike the "Eat More, Weigh Less Diet" which is regimented on law fat diet, the "Eat This Not that Diet" is not a strict diet program. It is an "up to you" kind of diet. Lackadaisical attitude can intrude and determination to lose weight deteriorates. This kind of diet does not actually serve well to those people who have a serious weight problem.

This diet strategy can be considered parallel to BBC's TV documentary depicting different methods on how one could enhance man's organ. In the documentary, one method suggested was the use of the power of thought to transmit energy to the organ to enhance it. Of course, it failed. The same is true with Eat This, Not That diet. It is just an idea. An idea can be tried, but there's no guarantee it would work.

However, if one really has to take into account the informed choices presented, a reader, for example, would discover that salad can be as artery-clogging as cheeseburger. A cream base soup could have 870 calories and 69 g of fat, while chicken salad is only 5 g of fat and 294 calories. A stark difference is shown, which would make one think.

A chapter in "Eat This Not that Diet" book deals with on how to decode menus. For example, be warned if you see terms such as 'roasted' or 'steamed' vs. 'fried'. It alerts you, too, about which cuts of meats in a restaurant have more artery-clogging fat. Healthy looking food as spicy tuna made of mayonnaise could have hidden fat and calories. Thin-crust pizza with veggie toppings as compared to other type pizza available could have slashed as much as 100 calories a day; this could mean losing 10 pounds in a year.

"Eat this, Not That Diet's" book in its listed guidelines claims that one can lose fat and build lean muscle through swaps of one food item for another dish. Expert disagreed because substitution is not enough. Strength training is required to do that. Substitution may not be really low-calorie choices or healthy because no big picture is introduced to the scene. If one eats the "eat this" part only, then you'd expect to be nutritionally deficient. The book also claimed that following the guidelines in the book would help rev up metabolism, yet this is not backed up by scientific evidence. The book can be effective with way of cutting calories but it should be use in tandem with other weight-loss method giving notice to portion, quality and lifestyle.

Nutrition is not factored on the guideline of the "Eat This, Not That Diet's" book when advising substitution of food. It means that in the long run, nutritional deficiencies could take a toll. "Eat this" choice isn't always the healthy option". Example: smoothie has calcium, but could be on the 'don't eat' list - because the subject of nutrients is nowhere in the book for discussion.
