About Eat This, Not That!

Starting in a 2002 op-ed in the New York Times and later in 2007 with the Eat This, Not That! series of books, David Zinczenko called for food manufacturers "to provide what every diner in America deserves: full disclosure" and led to calorie counts on menus and healthier formulations of products from Jamba Juice, Carl's Jr. and many more. The blockbuster series—with its pop culture attitude, shocking food swaps and proven "no-diet" weight loss strategies—has gone on to sell 8 million copies, and continues to top the charts, with titles devoted to restaurant menu survival, supermarket shopping guides, healthy pregnancies and rapid weight loss.
