EAT THIS NOT THAT! NO DIET-DIET: The World's Easiest Weight Loss Plan!, by David Zinczenko, with Matt Goulding. Rodale, $21.99, 330 pp.


The latest in a series by the folks at Men's Health magazine, this picture book gives strategies for losing weight at fast-food restaurants and other joints not known for lean cuisine.

It's full of digestible advice about eating well -- and why you need to.

The "Eat This, Not That! Doctor Decoder" explains, "When doctors say . . . 'Your blood pressure's a little high,' they really mean . . . 'You're at increased risk for heart disease and stroke, as well as sexual dysfunction.' "

No mincing words.
