A Review of "Eat This Not That: Supermarket Survival Guide" by David Zinczenko with Matt Goulding

It's not a secret that diet affects both pulmonary hypertension and SVT, so when I saw this, I grabbed it.

I need to eat better, I know many people feel like they do as well, and flat out deprivation doesn't seem like a good idea. Being careful about labels, especially DECEPTIVE ONES, can save you from sugar overloads, ridiculously low fiber counts, and dense calories. 

This book gives you shopping tips, some we all know, like do not go to the grocery store starving-you'll spend more money and more junk and probably be mean to the cashier. And some surprised me, like bulking up the fruit and vegetables in the freezer section can save you on freshness and money. 

The foods that get the worst ratings in here are going to shock you.

And, if you are like me, they are also going to piss you off.

I wasn't checking the labels and found the extra pricey organic granola bars I had been buying were the worst sugary oily garbage we could have been getting. Another brand at a much lower cost had more fiber, less sugar, and more vitamin content. Not paying attention to anything but the packaging was costing us and I had no idea. 

Overall, this is a fast, easy read. One most of us could use if we weren't already religiously checking the nutrition labels on our foods. The product ratings and recommended switches will also give you better ideas of what you might want to try on your next shopping trip. 


I'd recommend this book to anyone who is shopping for their household, honestly.
