Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With this compilation of many previously published, low-calorie recipes, the Better Homes and Gardens editors contribute another entry to the plain-and-straightforward, unfattening genre. While this one will no doubt appeal to the legions of dieters desperate for ideas that will work, it is not entirely practical for anyone who has a life outside the house. While the book starts with a three-day menu called "Begin-Your-Diet Menus," followed by recipes, there is no shopping list for this section, and not even a pantry section for the rest of the book to aid calorie-watchers in preparing themselves for myriad recipes, the possible advent of binging and the potential for last-minute guests. Unquestionably ingenious calorie- and fat-saving recipes can be found--among them, no- cholesterol brownie bits and taco salad using corn tortillas pressed and then baked--not fried--into a custard cup mold. However, the calorie counts, included prominently with each recipe, can be deceiving; no measurements are given for serving sizes. Moreover, there are inconsistencies. A very basic cookbook like this one demands better. Illustrations not seen by PW. Better Homes and Gardens Cook Book Club featured alternate.

In summary: I love this cookbook!! Nearly every recipe has an accompanying color photo and all have complete nutritional information, including dieting exchanges, and a section on menu planning. The recipes contain practical ingredients that REAL people buy in REAL grocery stores!! The collection of recipes covers a wide range of ethnic and continental dishes that are quick and easy to prepare. Some of my favorites are: roasted garlic spinach dip, eggplant and orzo casserole, and twice baked potatoes with ZERO grams of fat!! I highly recommend this book .. try it, you'll love it!

Are you sick of dieting? Are you tired of nasty, chalky "protein shakes" that make you gag? Are you tired of gimmicks in magazines and on T.V.? Do you want to eat real, palatable actual food? Well, if so, this is YOUR cookbook.
I have been using this cookbook for 3 weeks and have lost 8 POUNDS! I am using the 1200 calorie-per-day meal plan and the pounds are just melting off. And I am eating real food. There are recipes for lasagne, fried chicken, even CHEESECAKE!
Most recipes are under 350 calories per serving, which make them easy to fit into the 1200-calorie-per-day scheme. Additionally, with this book, sticking with good, healthy eating habits is easy, since the recipes are so delicious. I especially like the salad nicoise, the roasted garlic chicken, the apple-oatbran muffins, the lemony asparagus shrimp and the cheese blintzes.
Is your mouth watering? Well, you too can have all this and more, just buy this book! It will be the best tactical move in your own weight-loss odyssey!

I bought this cookbook in an earlier edition and thought the recipes looked interesting but hadn't really tried many. Then my husband and I joined Weight Watchers, and I began to try more and more of the recipes. We have not had any that we did not like. They are relatively simple and use ingredients that we usually have on hand. The nutrition information makes it easy to convert to the Weight Watchers point system, and the portions are reasonable. I now own many low fat cookbooks, but I still return to this one at least once a week. It is starting to get stained and battered, which is the best recommendation for any cookbook.

i have had this cookbook for at least 7 years, and refer to it on a regular basis. i assure you, if you don't tell anyone its low-fat cooking, they will never know! the step by step instructions are so easy to follow, and my ultimate reason for loving this cookbook is the fact that most of the ingredients for these recipes are on your shelf! i have lost over 50 pounds by changing my eating habits, and this particular cookbook has aided me in keeping the pounds off! this book has a wonderful variety of low-fat recipes, and an added plus, by showing pictures! you'll use it for years!

My husband and I lost a total of 100 pounds in 5 months by using the delicious recipes in this book. The food is tasty, easy to prepare, and satisfying. The variety of foods from the traditional to the more exotic or ethnic gives the range of choice often missing in "diet" books. I have purchased this book as a gift for several friends who have also found it enjoyable.

My picky husband and I love this cookbook! We've made about 35 recipes already, and every single one's a hit. Our favorite is the chicken chimichangas. The recipes range from easy to medium difficultly. This book would make a great graduation gift for a college student (which it was to me!) They should change the name to Healthy Eating Cookbook though, because you don't feel like you're eating on a diet.

Format: Hardcover
My husband and I received this cook book as a wedding gift almost 8 years ago and I was somewhat offended that someone would give me a "Diet" cook book. For several years, it sat on a shelf and was never opened. One day, I started looking through it and was excited by the pictures and how easy the recipes seemed. I tried some of them and was amazed at how easy the recipes were and how delicious they were. We now eat meals out of this on a daily basis--even our kids like them!! We are not dieting, but are excited to know that we can eat this good and still have it be low-fat and healthy. The recipes are easy enough that anyone can make them and they use normal ingredients--not items that you have never heard of. I would highly recommend this to everyone...and I quite often do!!

This is a great cookbook in so many ways. The recipes are easy to prepare and don't call for strange ingredients. All the recipes are very flavorful, even my husband who runs screaming from anything associated with the word "diet" swears by this book. The recipes are varied enough to be compatable with many diets (e.g. low fat, no meat, high protien, or zone type combinations). Also, the layout of the book makes it very easy to use. You won't be dissapointed!
