New York (October 13, 2009) – The authors of the bestselling Eat This, Not That! book series, which has more than five million copies in print, today released a new expanded volume of the original title with the most up-to-date information on making the best food swaps in America, while still indulging in favorites-EAT THIS, NOT THAT! 2010 by David Zinczenko, with Matt Goulding (Rodale; Paperback, $19.99). The fifth book in the popular series is an insider’s guide to making better choices at the most popular restaurant chains and at the supermarket. Available nationwide in stores today, this groundbreaking book, which will now be updated and released annually, reveals hundreds of tried and true food swaps that will save readers thousands of unwanted calories – without dieting!

What most Americans don’t know is that 66 percent of American adults are overweight or obese, and by 2030 that number is expected to approach 87 percent. Learn what “healthy” breakfast cereal could be raising the risk of obesity – and how one simple swap could slash both weight and healthcare bills! This practical guidebook provides consumers with the simple tools to saving thousands of calories and countless pounds.

In fact, the popularity of the EAT THIS, NOT THAT! series has forced big food companies to stand up and make some food swaps of their own. After Chili’s “Awesome Blossom” took the runner-up spot on the annual “Worst Foods in America” list, Chili’s removed the calorie bomb from the menu entirely. Restaurants that had historically declined to provide nutritional infromation began posting calorie counts for the first time, and overall, 10-20 items on the “Worst Foods” list in the original EAT THIS, NOT THAT! book either improved dramatically or disappeared.
