Eat This, Not That is a great blog dedicated to well-being through proper eating. Their tagline is "The No-Diet Weight Loss Solution." Admittedly, that sounds like something straight out of a late-night infomercial. But Eat This, Not That is nothing like an infomercial. Rather, it's a frank and honest site, examining how what we eat affects how we live and shapes (literally) who we are.
Published through Men's Health, Eat This, Not That doesn't want anyone to starve to death. They simply want people to think before they eat. Obviously, this goes against many facets of American culture. After all, this is the country of hot-dog-eating contests, super-sized fries and the KFC Double Down. But this is also the country facing a massive public health crisis in the form of obesity.
Eat This, Not That is looking to help inform people. They're not trying to make anyone a vegan. A recent post on their blog informs the reader on how to "Eat Healthy at the BBQ Shack." There's also a "How to Eat Healthy at the Burger Joint" post. Probably my favorite post, however, is the one on the 20 Worst Drinks in America. Here they photograph these liquid offenders alongside their sugar equivalents. For instance, one orange soda has as much sugar as six (6!) ice cream sandwiches. Gross.
But at no point are the folks at Eat This, Not That saying NOT to eat at these places; they're just suggesting we be a little more thoughtful about our choices. And that's what's so great about Eat This, Not That. They present the facts ... and they're never sugar-coated.
