More About the Author

Cheryl Forberg RD is a New York Times bestselling author, a James Beard award-winning chef, nutritionist and culinary consultant for NBC's The Biggest Loser. Her role is to help overweight contestants transform their bodies, health and ultimately, their lives. A culinary expert and registered dietitian, she has shared cooking and nutrition tips with the contestants and viewers for eleven seasons.

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've done several of the recipes in Cheryl's new cookbook and they've all been wonderful. You don't need to know how to cook. Cheryl explains cooking methods, spices, condiments, etc. This book is for the complete novice to the everyday chef! The Huevos Sofrito is so delicious and healthy start to any morning and easy to prepare. I'm gluten free and there are plenty of GF recipes in the book. I made the German Chocolate Brownies- made with quinoa flour- they were very satisfying. I also made the pumpkin flan- which was so tasty! I can't wait to make it for Thanksgiving. And the Fire Roasted Chili!! I can't say enough about the flavors. It's a party in your mouth!! It's layered and complex and so so good. Just buy the book! You'll see what I mean!!

I blogged about 9 different recipes [...] and have tried more that I didn't write up. I kept track of how much I spent on ingredients, how long each recipe took to make, and how well it turned out for me.

I was really surprised at some of the simple food preparation tips. I now sautee my onion and then garlic first all the time and learned how to roast bell peppers for a fabulous flavor and consistency. I also learned how to make the best use of different herbs and spices.

There are also some new-to-me ingredients that I regularly buy now, like fire roasted tomatoes and low-sodium chicken broth, that have upped the flavor of a lot of my normal dishes.

I really appreciate the way the recipes are written - easy for me to understand and not too much detail to become overwhelming. When following the recipes my pork or chicken doesn't get over cooked but ends up juicy and flavorful.

I definitely recommend this book to someone who is looking to learn about healthy cooking for flavor. I nearly died when I made the tom ka gai soup - it tasted just like it does when we go out to eat and I LOVE that so much. It's one of my favorite recipes from the book!

The thing I always love about Cheryl's recipes is the respect her dishes have for a palate starved for pleausure. So often when we're trying to lose weight, we turn to foods that are bland, almost punishing in terms of how they react to our taste buds. But her dishes are always a delight to eat, making reaching that goal on the scale a much more happy journey! If you're on a weight loss plan, get this book to help keep you on that plan. These recipes will engage your taste buds and keep you interested in eating healthy food.

I spent ten years in college and yet have accumulated more cookbooks than textbooks. So perhaps I missed my calling? Of all those cookbooks, this is one of my favorites. Every recipe is healthy and full of flavor. I haven't found a recipe by Cheryl Forberg I haven't enjoyed.
