First, we were more than a little bit excited to order this book from Amazon in April as it is not scheduled for release until June 1, 2011. That being said, my wife and I absolutely love this cookbook! We've been searching for low-calorie cookbooks to help us succeed while implementing the "400 Calorie Fix" diet by Liz Vaccariello (also available on Amazon) and this book is the perfect compliment to meet the 3-4 400-calorie meals requirement per day.

This cookbook includes simple, down-to-Earth hearty recipes. It doesn't require a lot of fancy items or ingredients that one would be forced to shop for in a specialty grocery store in order to prepare. It does what it exactly what it says in that it offers readers recipes for meals which are both satisfying and filling but still safely remain within the 400-calorie intake range. This book does NOT include color photos and/or sketches of the actual meals or dishes. Some readers may be disappointed by that, but for us it wasn't a drawback.

Each recipe includes the total number of calories, protein, fat, carbs, fiber, sugar as well as the vitamin intake, which was a surprising addition and a welcomed convenience.

The exact content of the book is as follows:

Love the 400 calorie cook books. I highly recommend them. I even gave one to my mother in law for her birthday because she loved mine so much. I have lost weight quite effortlessly and without feeling hungry. Not to mention even both my kids love the foods in the book. Which is AMAZING because my 13 year old son is the pickiest eater I have ever seen.

I was excited to get this cookbook so that I would have a quick reference for 400 calorie meals that I could easily plan around and make. But, most of the recipes in this books are for 6 to 8 servings! As I looked closer at the recipes, I saw that they frequently used oil when typical low-fat cooking techniques would suggest using non-stick spray and it was only then that I realized that the "400 calorie" meals are really just cutting a regular recipe into tiny little servings. I can make my mom's lasagna and do that! I am SO disappointed. Do not waste your money on this book, especially if you are just cooking for one or two (like me). Another example of how ludicrous this book is -- there is a "tortilla bake" using tortillas in a 9-inch pie pan and layering them with ground beef and cheese and salsa. In order for this recipe to qualify for 400 calories, guess how many pieces you have to slice it into? SIX! So, this one recipe in a 9-inch pie pan is ostensibly enough for three full meals for my husband and me. Whatever. I repeat, do not waste your money. Hungry Girl 300 recipes for 300 calories and under is much better.

Format: Paperback
This book's recipes use a common sense approach to losing weight, just eat less calories, but make those calories dense in nutrition (and minimally processed). There is also a focus on low sodium, low saturated fat, and high fiber. It is not about combining the right carbs or proteins, or even eating fruit at the right time during the day (thankfully). This way of eating is based on research of many different sources; it's not just one person coming up with a 'diet plan'. I like that.

The book is unfortunately, kinda ugly though. The paper is rough and cheap looking, but fairly thick. The spine does not allow the book to stay open easily. With time though, the spine will probably crease or loosen and this won't be much of a factor. There are NO pictures at all. Some people may like this, keeps it simple, but I really like to see what the recipe looks like made up. This gets me more excited about making the meal and it lets me know at a glance if I have the materials or even if it looks appetizing. I like that there is a short intro to all of the chapters giving a bit more info on that particular grouping. The font is a decent size and even the nutritional information is easily readable even without my reading glasses. There are a few lame tips scattered throughout such as: You can substitute other vegetables like onions and zucchini OR Serve over noodles or rice. Sorta silly stuff. The recipes do not give a prep time or total time to make which is always helpful, but not mandatory. And most of these recipes are indeed short and do not look like gourmet, lengthy ordeals. :-)

A very nice addition to helping Americans lose some weight!

I've made three or four of these recipes so far. They have all been tasty and fillilng. They do not seem like diet recipes at all. Most are quick and easy and use common ingredients.
