Here's some of the buzz about Trudy's books.
"The book [this=that: adult version] has been fantastic for group sessions, and for NESB patients. I always get asked where to buy it from, so I thought I should just buy a whole heap and sell them myself!"

I was amazed at your book [this=that child size] it was really helpful. My daughter is 6 and short like me and is overweight, however we eat quite healthy as my husband has heart failure, diabetes and Kidney disease.
I think I was overwhelmed by the portion sizes, I think sometimes we get carried away.
Your book has been so helpful and my daughter absolutely loves it.
Thanks so much for you help.
Head on over to The Scoop on Nutrition. Scroll down to the comments section to read what 23 people who have the book say about it.
I wrote a quest post titled Tricks of the trade: how to change energy density to lose weight and a staggering number of people spontaneously replied with praise about the "this=that" books.
A few of the comments from The Scoop on Nutrition article are quoted below:
This book is great, it not only shows you what is good to eat, but also how bad some things can be even in small amounts. When I first read this book my 3 year old at the time used to love reading through it and became alot more interested different fruit and vegies.
We recently got a copy of your kids book and my now 5 year old again loved looking through it. I later found out that he was telling one of his fellow classmates, that the donut in his lunch box was not a good choice and that if he was going to eat it, he should only have a third of it!
Just shows you that armed with the right information it doesn’t matter who you are or how old you are you can make the right decisions to set you up for the rest of your life.
This is a fantastic book. A picture (or pictures in this case) speak a thousand words.
The kid’s version of this=that is just as amazing.
I am a Nurse in the UK and recently had a 25 year school reunion. All the nurses were BIG ! I realise its time to adress the weight that has crept up on me over the years.
You have many fans in the UK including a gastric band support group who reccomend your books.
Many thanks for your work.
I bought a copy of this book for our bariatric centre. Patients and I would look at the equivalent choices and I encouraged them to eat the ‘bigger portion’ foods when they were very hungry and save the treatie/high cal foods for those times when they were less likely to eat to the bottom of the box. They were happy to see that they could still eat things they liked but could easily see the right amount and then pick the right hunger zone. A very useful tool, not just for weight loss but also for my cholesterol control. Definitely part of a healthy and educated food lifestyle.
