Eat to Lose, Eat to Win by Rachel Beller

Eat to Lose, Eat to Win by Rachel Beller is a diet book that will change your view on “diet” foods and “healthy” foods for life. Many of the things you think are healthy actually aren’t, and Beller gives examples of this and provides healthier options instead. This book is packed with information, pictures, and much more for foods and meals that are truly healthy, and can help you to reach your goal weight.

Book Description
Every year millions of Americans vow to lose weight, but instead of approaching diets in a healthy and sustainable way, many obsess over calories, carbs, and diet fads. The result: frustration and even weight gain. Now Rachel Beller, America's get-real nutritionist, delivers the first book that combines science-based advice with step-by-step action plans for weight loss and optimal health. While most diet books focus on what you can't eat, Eat to Lose, Eat to Win emphasizes what you should eat—putting skinny solutions into shopping carts and onto plates. In her signature fun-to-read style, Rachel shows you how to do it all.

  • Flip your high-calorie meals for skinny success
  • Shop to drop pounds with handy Buy This guides
  • Discover inside secrets about your favorite foods with Food Autopsy™ alerts
  • Get rid of guesswork with recipes for every meal

From meal planning to shopping to eating, Eat to Lose, Eat to Win guides you step by step and bite by bite through the world of real, science-based nutrition.” – Eat to Lose, Eat to Win

My Thoughts
Eat to Lose, Eat to Win is an easy and fun to read book about nutrition and your food choices. If you’ve read a few diet books or watched “Dr. Oz” on TV, most of what Rachel Beller says won’t surprise you. Eat less sugar, eat more fiber, eat less carbs, eat more veggies, etc. However, how she goes about it is fun, and the full-color pictures of the foods and meals helps make you want to actually try the food and change your bad dieting ways.

The book includes guides for shopping (what to buy, what not to buy) that you can actually use easily. Nothing added in the recipes is hard to find or hard to cook. The recipes aren’t too hard, and Beller’s sassy guidance definitely helped me want to try out what she said. Boring diet books don’t work for me, but this one did help to teach me a few things and remind me of much more of what I should be doing for my body.

Overall, I think this is a great diet book for everyone. If you know a lot about nutrition, it works as a fun refresher, and if you know next to nothing, this book would be a very valuable resource for your nutritional needs.
