Still a good book for those who need to change their eating habits.

While chapter 4 is "the five week meal plan." which includes a grocery list for each week, simple family recipes and nutrition information.

I will probably end up ordering his first book again as soon as the old one becomes unusable.

I wanted to review Extra Lean Family because being Mexican Mario has many issues I have when it comes to family tradition and eating. I myself am Hispanic and was born in Puerto Rico although my ancestors came from Spain. I have found this book to work for my family and me when it comes to nutrition, meals and our total health. In the introduction Mario points out how he struggled with eating right as a young adolescent and into his teens. He points out the main goal of his books are is to help others find the right balance when it comes to nutrition. Now that he is married and has a family of his own he has decided to extend that information with this Extra Lean Family book. Chapter 1 of the book is quick and focused on the metabolism, calories, servings good and bad fats and other information, including child size portions. Just a refresher if you already know some things and great insight for others who do not, especially when it comes to child portions. The second chapter moves on to what kinds of foods you should and should not have in the house, shopping for the right foods and food labels. Chapter 3 helps you maintain the Extra Lean habits. While chapter 4 is "the five week meal plan." which includes a grocery list for each week, simple family recipes and nutrition information. In chapter 5 the focus goes to the nutrition of the child, including healthy snacks, options for the picky eater and really good points on how to help your child eat better without being overbearing. Even if we can't get our kids to eat right we can at least show them how to by example, which later can be a great benefit once they get older and realise the importance of it, a great point in the book.Read more ›

I tried Extra Lean Family Meals from my local library and have really enjoyed the meals. Next week I have to return the book so I'm ordering it today from Amazon. I did the same with Mario's first diet book and still use it today (it has it's pages torn, food stains and the binding is coming off due to using it so much). I will probably end up ordering his first book again as soon as the old one becomes unusable. Would highly recommend both books. Liked the way he's incorporated a grocery list into his second book as it really helps. Thanks Mario!

This is a great cookbook! One of the best that I've found in recent years. The recipes are super simple, very quick and best of all, delicious. The instructions are easy to follow and even if you're new to home-cooking, you'll have no trouble making the meals taste great! In addition to the recipes themselves, Mario has added a shopping list for each week so you know exactly what to buy every time you go to the store (which cuts back on impulse purchases, my weakness). He also gives some great tips on eating healthy as a lifestyle, not just when you're cooking dinner each night. This book isn't just a cookbook, it's a meal planning guide that teaches you HOW to eat, not just WHAT to eat. And most of all, I love that he includes children in the meal planning and gives you tips on how to feed picky eaters. Overall, I say this cookbook is a must for every family that is trying to live a healthier lifestyle while still eating yummy!

There are many good recipes. My family, even my kids, loved the food. It was exactly within my budget each week, which helped me to stop buying foods I didnt need and stick to my list. I even lost a jean size without exercising for about 3 weeks. But Im back to working out and I have seen even more improvment in my body's looks and energy.
