|How to Bypass the Bypass "We may count on health departments to ensure sanitation in restaurants, but who is looking after our interests when it comes to the nutritional consequences of what those restaurants serve?" ask Michael F. Jacobson, Ph.D., and Jayne Hurley, R.D., in Restaurant Confidential (Workman, May). Working under the auspices of the nonprofit consumer advocacy organization Center for Science in the Public Interest, the authors, who have ruffled lots of feathers in the restaurant industry with their scary food studies, demystify the eating-out experience in this humanely argued book (they like eating out, too, but are wary of the dishes they call "heart attacks on a plate" and "coronary bypass specials"). Their book certainly isn't good news, but with its extensive calorie listings and helpful tips for dodging hidden fat, it should be obligatory browsing for health-conscious diners. As for the authors, "They are show stoppers," says publicist Jim Eber, noting that they will carry a beaker of fat around with them on their 20-city book tour in May "to show how much fat you consume by eating an entire dish or just one donut." And they make great comparisons, he says: "Want to finish that Kung Pao Chicken? Fine, but know it has the same calories as four McDonald's Quarter Pounders." To which we say, Yikes.|
