Amazon.com Review

Lynn Fischer, television's "Low Cholesterol Gourmet," knows that there's more to a low-fat diet than simply yanking the fat out of every recipe; all too often the flavor disappears right along with the fat. So why monitor your fat content? Maybe you need to shed a pound or two; perhaps you've seen your doctor's finger pointed straight at you, accompanied by the admonition to treat your heart with a little more respect; or you may just be interested in a more healthy diet. Where do you start? How do you cook and bake with less fat? How do you shop for reduced-fat meals? How do you plan and measure in order to achieve the results you want? Fischer addresses all of these questions in a cookbook that contains more than 225 recipes for delicious foods, from appetizers to desserts, and no recipe calls for more than 1 gram of fat.

I'm giving this book (at THEIR request) to several friends and family members for a holiday gift. I've entertained friends, and myself, with the wonderful meals found in this book. I consider Lynn Fischer an author who can save us all from high-fat cooking with healthy, delicious foods.

I HAVE BEEN ON WEIGHT WATCHERS FOR OVER A YEAR AND THIS BOOK HAS ADDED GREAT TASTING RECIPES I CAN ADAPT TO MY WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM. EACH RECIPE HAS "A NUTRITION AT A GLANCE" CHART THAT IS SO HELPFUL, ESPECIALLY IN COMPUTING MY POINTS FOR WEIGHT WATCHERS. I HAVE SHARED SOME RECIPES WITH FELLOW MEMBERS AND I AM ORDERING AN ADDITIONAL COPY TODAY FOR ONE OF MY FRIENDS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK FOR ROOKIE COOKS THAT FIND IT HARD TO FOLLOW A RECIPE. EACH RECIPE IS BROKEN DOWN INTO STEPS, VERY EASY TO FOLLOW.

I would recommend this book to others if you are looking for a low-fat cookbook that consists of more gourmet-type recipes instead of ordinary meals. All the recipes in this book have under 1 gram of fat per serving, but from the ones I've tried, you wouldn't know that it wasn't made the usual fat-filled way.
There are some really delicious recipes in this book--Peking Turkey & Vegetables; Sweet and Spicy Carrots; Rice and Orzo Pilaf (absolutely delicious), etc. If you are looking for a lot of meat recipes, you don't want this book. Obviously meat has fat, so there aren't a whole lot of meat recipes to choose from. I don't usually eat a whole lot of meat anyway so this was fine for me.
Another thing about this book that I find interesting is with every recipe the author includes a little food fact or lore or a kitchen tip or health tip--makes for an interesting read. One thing that I would have liked to have seen is a picture of each dish. There are color pictures of some of the dishes, but not all...

Lynn Fischer is the best. Great book and well worth the $$$. A must for a healthy cook. I do use some improvisation on some recipes that use chemically enhanced ingredients. But just having the fresh veggies and no fat makes it worth your money. I highly recomment it.

Great book with inventive recipes and complete nutrition counts. Each recipe I have tried has been delicious--some more work than others, but worth it for the great taste. Wonderful book especially for anyone needing to control their fat intake without giving up anything in the taste department!

Great recipes! And unusual, but tasty with ingredients that you have in your kitchen, but wouldn't think of putting together. Really refreshing for anyone that is looking to maintain or has started a "diet" or eating healthy.
