Should I Scoop Out My Bagel?: And 99 Other Answers to Your Everyday Diet and Nutrition Questions to Help You Lose Weight, Feel Great, and Live Healthy by Ilyse Schapiro and Hallie Rich
This book started off a little smug - in discussing bagels, they say, (19) "the taste may not compare, but we love our asses in our favorite jeans more." It's just a retread of "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." It's tone-deaf in a book that's supposed to be about healthy choices.
But the information about whether to blot your pizza (question 3, the answer is no) is more helpful, as are most of the answers to the (again) pun-filled questions. And that's the most frustrating thing about this book, it's seriously helpful but nearly unreadable. If you're looking for a weight-loss book, this is as good as any other. Unfortunately, I think this was supposed to be a nutrition book and in that regard, fell short.
