More About the Author

Media Personality, Healthy Comfort Food Chef, Weight Loss Expert, and New York Times Bestselling Author, Devin Alexander, is the Chef of NBC's "The Biggest Loser". Devin's unique approach to healthy cooking and her motivational personal story have landed her appearances on more weight loss and fitness shows than any other food expert or nutritionist in America. Having maintained her 70-pound weight loss for close to 20 years, she lives and eats her message: you don't have to deprive yourself to be fit and healthy. She teaches, The Secret of Food™.

Devin has shared her Devinly™ Decadent secrets as the host of Healthy Decadence on Discovery Health and Fit Tv from 2007-2011, as Host of "America's Chefs on Tour" on PBS and through frequent appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Biggest Loser, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, Access Hollywood Live, The Doctors, Dr. Drew, The View, OMG Insider, Celebrity Fit Club, Discovery Health's National Body Challenge, FOX, CNN, HGTV, USA, Style Network and others as well as through over 500 magazine features including Prevention, Women's Health, Men's Health and Shape. She currently serves as Culinary Advisor to Men's Fitness Magazine and has served as Cooking Expert to Women's Health.

Devin is the author of eight cookbooks. Her first cookbook, Fast Food Fix (Rodale, 2006) was featured as an editor's top pick in USA Today and her follow-up The Biggest Loser Cookbook (Rodale, 2006), a companion to the hit NBC show, spent months on The New York Times Bestsellers List as did her The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook (Rodale, November 2008). Devin's The Most Decadent Diet Ever! (Broadway, 2008) revealed her secrets to living healthy without sacrificing the foods we all love and "I Can't Believe It's Not Fattening" (Broadway 2010) provides the answer for people who think they are too busy to cook. It sold out on QVC. Next she wrote The Biggest Loser Dessert Cookbook (Rodale, November 2010), The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook (Rodale, March 2011) and The Biggest Loser Quick & Easy Cookbook (Rodale, 2011), which spent weeks on The New York Times Bestsellers List.

After 9 years as the Owner and Executive Chef of Café Renee Catering, Devin now travels the country lecturing and consulting for major U.S. food and cookware companies. She's on the Advisory Board of the American Culinary Federation's Chef Child Foundation and spent years as Larry King Foundation's Go-To-Chef to speak on "Obesity in America". Her Restaurant, Devinly Decadence™ is currently onboard Royal Caribbean's newest cruiseship Quantum of the Seas, and is coming to Anthem of the Seas April 2015 and Ovation of the Seas April 2016. She's currently working on her food line, Devinly Delites™.

When she's not in her kitchen or traveling, Devin can be found on the beach by her home, playing her new favorite sport, beach tennis. She's plans to obtain a world ranking.

Format: Paperback
The Biggest Loser Quick & Easy Cookbook is the first of the series that I have read or purchased, so I cannot compare it to any of the others. If you are in the market for a cookbook that promotes a healthy eating plan rather than a "diet book", this one looks encouraging. The author is promoting a "clean" and healthy eating and exercise routine, eating fresh and natural foods whenever possible.

The author began by confirming what is probably one of the biggest problems people have regarding eating well...the failure to plan ahead and thereby falling into the trap of grab-as-you-go cooking and eating. This is definitely an issue for anyone who works (in or out of the home), has children, or just likes to live an active lifestyle. She goes on to explain how having basic healthy food on hand will help you to make better choices when it comes time to prepare your meals.

Next the book goes on to list and describe those basic ingredients as well as cooking tools and supplies. She mentions brand names when appropriate and some of the recipes the ingredient will be useful for. She also gives helpful suggestions on where to find them.

The Biggest Loser eating plan is covered by discussing calories, serving sizes, healthy fats, product labels, suggestions on understanding levels of hunger, etc.

A 20-minute exercise routine is covered in great detail with thorough descriptions of the proper way to do each exercise and illustrations of people doing each one.

At this point in the book, the recipes begin. I will list just a few examples here so you will have an idea of the types of recipes you will find in this book.

Breakfast: Sausage Feta Pepper Bake, Steak and Egg Breakfast Bowl, Margherita Breakfast Pizza.

I got my Biggest Loser Cookbook a few weeks ago. I opened it up and flip thorugh the first few pages, flipped some more and more and more and more..... where's the recipes?!?!The first 70 pages are about countng calories, measuring food and exercising. That's great information, but the title of the book is "Quick and Easy COOKBOOK." I love the full page color pictures, but when the cook book starts on page 70 and every other page is a full color picture, there aren't many recipes in this cook book after all.

Format: Paperback
I have to say that I was reluctant to pick up this book for two reasons. First, the world is flooded with cookbooks already, and second, I am not a regular viewer of the TV show. I think it is entertaining and I like the fact that it inspires people to make changes in their health. I have a new appreciation for the contestants after reading Becoming Fearless: My Ongoing Journey of Learning to Trust God.

This book is written by Chef Devin Alexander (a guest star on the show) and It features 75 recipes with 20 minutes of prep time or less. With six chapters of unique recipes for any occasion, the book includes flavorful and filing recipes such as:
- Sausage Feta Pepper Breakfast Bake
- Blanca Arugula Pizza
- Spicy Cayenne Corn on the Cob
- Garlic & Herb Macaroni and Cheese
- Cold Dumpling Salad
- Coffee Crusted Chopped Steak
- Philly Cheese steak Pizza
- Crispy Pesto Cod

And deserts like:
- Chocolate Raspberry Dreamers
- Honey Nut Apple Butter Rice Cakes

Do I have your attention yet? What could be better than tasty dishes with short ingredient lists that do not take all day to make? Each dish has a colored picture to show you the finished result. The book is larger than most, making it easy to read and use. There's also cooking and baking tips, as well as a shopping list to help you stock up with healthy supplies.

What really surprised me was that this is much more than a cook book. The book starts with 20-minute workouts with tips on how to burn the most calories in the least amount of time. Throughout the book, you will find tips from contestants, complete with their pictures.

This book is not what I expected. It does have a few good recipes - but I feel a lot of the book was taken up by the "workouts" - I already have a Biggest Loser Workout Book so this was frustrating to me - I expected there to be a lot more recipes - and more variety - there were two recipes for meatloaf! I liked that it had written out the calories, carbs, etc...but I just wanted more from this product.

I bought this book expecting just recipes. But to my surprise there was a lot of useful information in the start of the book that has to do with shoping, exercising and other tips for a healthy lifestyle. Granted I did not read the discription but it was a nice surprise. Most of the recipes are indeed easy and in fact do taste quite good. Granted some of the ingredants are extremely difficult to find in Vons or Stater-Brothers... but the author discusses how to get around this in the start of the book. Granted it changes the nutri. facts which is bothers me the most.

This book came quick but it is not what I was expecting. The recipes in it really did not look easy or interesting to me, but luckily I got the biggest loser family cookbook for Christmas and that was more of what I was thinking this one would be. There is nothing wrong with this book, it just isn't what I thought it would be. I wish I could have previewed some of the recipes before buying it.
