“Eat This, Not That” on “Biggest Loser: Families”

Before you tell me, I’ll say it.  I am way behind on my “Biggest Loser:  Families” episodes.  I have been watching the shows while I exercise, but the two-hour episodes take forever to complete.

I still like watching the show.  I understand and appreciate the challenge each contestant faces.  Also, I learn a few things here and there that help me with my journey. 

I just recently watched the episode with the “Eat This, Not That” challenge.  I have seen the book before, but I never stopped to take a closer look.  It just didn’t get my attention.

However, the challenge was very interesting to me.  I have been so focused on my NutriSystem Advanced meals, and I have classified them as healthy.  However, I have not yet really begun to understand the choices I will need to make, after I reach my goal with NutriSystem Advanced.

I thought the choices in the challenge would be obvious.  I thought I would easily recognize the “Eat This!”, but it was not so clear-cut.  Obviously, the challenge was intentionally hard, but the author explained some basic rules about making the right choices.  For example, anything with “The Works” is not good.

I cruised over to Amazon.com and “looked inside” the book at the table of contents.  I am so curious now to learn more, and I think this book will be a great tool for making the transition to maintenance.  That’ll give me about six months to read it!
