More About the Author
Cheryl received her culinary education at the California Culinary Academy (CCA) in San Francisco. After graduating from the CCA, she embarked on a European apprenticeship journey, which culminated in stints at top French restaurants from Champagne to Strasbourg. Upon return to the United States, Ms. Forberg was chosen for the opening team of Postrio, Wolfgang Puck's first venture in northern California.
Cheryl's passionate interest in healthy cooking led to an exodus from restaurant kitchens and an entrée to some of the most prestigious households in America. During this period she held the coveted position of Private Chef for Lucasfilm, Ltd. in northern California. She went on to earn a degree in Nutrition and Clinical Dietetics and an RD (registered dietitian) credential from the University of California at Berkeley. As a former research dietitian at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, she had the opportunity to integrate her scientific background into recipe creation for a variety of dietary protocols. This distinctive skill set enabled her to extend her culinary expertise beyond celebrated restaurant kitchens into the creation of inspired recipes that are also healthful. She has developed a clear and concise recipe format, easily understood by novice students.
Cheryl is a food and nutrition journalist, and her writing and recipes have appeared in mainstream culinary and health publications, including Sunset, Health, and Prevention magazines as well as the Washington Post. She is on the advisory board for Prevention magazine.
Cheryl co-wrote the eating plan for The Biggest Loser. She has written or contributed to thirteen books, including several NYT bestsellers - The Biggest Loser: The Weight Loss Program, The Biggest Loser Complete Calorie Counter, The Biggest Loser 30-Day Jump Start and Positively Ageless: A 28-Day Plan for a Younger, Slimmer, Sexier You.
She writes a weekly blog of cooking and nutrition tips at http://www.cherylforberg.com/blog/ She lives in Napa, California.

I found the fast-food restaurant guides to be somewhat random and incomplete. Most popular places were included, but often only a small selection of their menu was given. Plus some of the large national chains weren't in there (maybe they couldn't get permission?).
The guide can also be somewhat difficult to navigate, the order didn't seem to make much sense, although I suppose you could just tag the pages for items you frequently eat.
All-in-all I'd recommend this as a good pocket guide to carry with you when you go out, because it is small and light and does contain a lot of information, even if it's not perfect.
Live well, live healthy, live happy.
I don't recommend the Kindle edition of this book. Instead of creating HTML tables and typing the information to make them readable for Kindle, the author just take pictures of the tabulated information and pasted them to the HTML documents. The tables are unreadable and I had to return the book. These tables might be readable in Kindle DX but there is no such warning.
NOTE: THE RATING IS FOR THE KINDLE VERSION FORMAT - NOT THE CONTENTS OF THE BOOK - SINCE I MUST GIVE A RATING TO POST THIS REVIEW
First, they use such a small type that it is impossible for anyone over 40 to read it without glasses.
Next there are the "creative categories"...I kind of expect milk products to be under "dairy"...not under "beverages".
Then there is the inconsistency of their measurements of a serving size. For cottage cheese, the chart ranges from 4 oz to 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup...now we get to "do the math".
Their "Dining Out" consists of all the Fast Food restaurants on the planet...with only PF Chang as a restaurant that I might find helpful.
Do yourself a favor...buy a different book.
