Menu Confidential is a book for every Canadian who dines out. That’s most of us. One-quarter of Canadians— 8.5 million people—dine out once or twice a week, and almost one million Canadians say they eat at a restaurant every day. Most Canadians intend to eat right when having a meal outside their home, but few put those good intentions into practice. Sure, cravings for a greasy burger will sometimes overtake you, but the biggest hurdle to making smart choices is a lack of information.

Packed with colour photographs, Menu Confidential is not a traditional weight-loss book. Rather, it is a guide to navigating the dining scene, with solid facts, eye-opening analysis and easy-to-use tips. Over time, those who make better, more informed choices can lose weight, becoming smart diners with an edge on keeping those creeping pounds at bay.
