More About the Author

Media Personality, Healthy Comfort Food Chef, Weight Loss Expert, and New York Times Bestselling Author, Devin Alexander, is the Host of the "America's Chefs on Tour" which will be airing on National Public Broadcasting stations beginning this November 1st. 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 over 16 years, she lives and eats her message: you don't have to deprive yourself to be fit and healthy.

Devin has shared her secrets for unbelievably decadent yet healthy foods as the host of "Healthy Decadence" on Discovery Health and Fit Tv from 2007-2011 and through frequent appearances on The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Biggest Loser, Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil, The Doctors, Dr. Drew, The View, Celebrity Fit Club, Discovery Health's National Body Challenge, FOX, CNN, HGTV, USA, Style Network and others as well as through over 400 magazine features including Prevention, Women's Health, Men's Health and Shape. She has served as Culinary Advisor to Men's Fitness Magazine and 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. Devin recently released "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 also already 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, Larry King Foundation's Go-To-Chef to speak on "Obesity in America," and she recently returned from the White House as part of Michelle Obama's, Chefs Move To Schools Program. Her food line, Devinly Delites™, is currently in the works and later this year she plans to launch a major charity initiative.

Based on the NBC hit show "The Biggest Loser," this colorful cookbook is a plus to anybody's library that is trying to lose weight or even just eat healthy. The promise of the book is that eating healthy can be quick and delicious AND it doesn't have to mean bland, tasteless food- and the book delivers.

Readers will find a short review of the Biggest Loser's way to lose weight- which is sensible- you eat right and exercise. Then comes the heart of the book- over 100 recipes for the various meals like breakfast, snacks, etc. And unlike a lot of cookbooks, each recipe shows you exactly how many calories, fat grams, protein grams, carb grams, fiber grams, sodium, and cholesterol it contains- which is nice for a wide variety of other populations such as those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.

A sensible and practical cookbook, a lot of people will probably get their money's worth. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if a shoulder problem keeps you from getting all the benefits of lifting weights.

Last year I weighed 530 pounds. After being inspired by the TV show The Biggest Loser, I have lost 140 pounds so far. I still have about 200 more pounds to go. I KNOW that with recipes and meals like the ones featured in this book, that I will be able to reach my weight loss goals. The thing that I appreciate most about this cookbook is that the recipes are simple and easy to follow. I am a bachelor and am not an experienced cook but this book makes me look like a pro. I have been asked by so many people how I've lost the amount of weight that I have. The answer is less (make healthier food choices and portion control), move more (daily exercise) and drink lots of water. The Biggest Loser has shown me how to lose my weight - The Biggest Loser Cookbook is helping to keep me going!! PS The Blueberry Pancakes are out of this world! Yumm!!

I've recently taken up the hobby of buying cookbooks which, it was believed, would help me eat properly and lose weight. I've spent a LOT of time and money researching ways to lose weight healthily and tastily. I'm not a big cook and most of the cookbooks I have bought recently left my mouth-watering but not satisfied.

Not so with this cookbook! The recipes are the simplest things I've ever made. I made the Not Really Fried Rice this last weekend, and it was so simple and tasty! Tonight, we are eating the Jerk Salmon. My favorite things to snack on to satisfy my sweet tooth are the graham-wiches. They are so tasty and so low in calories I don't have to worry about it!

I've never counted calories before so the first week was a little hard for me to get used to - that and being careful about what I eat. But now, I feel like a pro and have total confidence on what I put into my body! Plus, the recipes have really added some 'spice' to our otherwise boring and mundane meal-plan.

I have both the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Program and now the cookbook. I have lost four pounds in the last two weeks. I highly recommend this cookbook for anyone wanting to lose weight and do it healthily! This is a great investment in your health!

I was disappointed in this book, though the other reviews should have served as a warning. This book contains a lot of information about the "plan" - diet and exercise - and the show - trainers and contestants - before it gets to the recipes. Once you get to the recipes, quite a few of them show the influence of the author's other cookbook seeming almost fast-food like, while still others, coming from the contestants themselves show their own styles and preferences. For that reason, there were fewer recipes that really excited me than I had hoped. Still, there are some definite "keepers" and if you are a fan of the show, you will like this book.

Format: Paperback
at how much I like this book. It has recipes in it that are good and good for you, even if you are not struggling (too much) with weight.

The book includes over 125 recipes developed by a chef who was well known as a celebrity chef for her good tasting but still good for you recipes.

I gave this 4 stars because there is a section in the beginning that profiles all the people who have been on The Biggest Loser, which was not my favorite part of the book, but for the TV show fans, they might like it. And, there is another chapter that is listed as the Biggest Loser exercise plan, but it really does not go into any depth at all, and just mentions how good exercise is for you.

However, then you get to the other chapters, beginning with the 4-3-2-1 food pyramid, which guides you to how many servings of each food group are suggested if you want to plan a menu. That makes it pretty easy to plan. The rest of the chapters are Breakfasts; Hearty Snacks; Sandwiches, Soups and Stews; Sides and Salads; Main Courses; and Sweet Snacks. This is the real "meat" of the book (pun intended). Some recipes were not to my taste, but some, like the Breakfast Sausage or the Ground Turkey Nachos, or especially the Chicken Lettuce Wraps, are quite good tasting.

There are photos of some, but not all of the foods, but each offering does have calorie and nutrition counts included.

This could be a good addition to your cookbook shelf(ves), if you are looking for a calorie minded, but real food cookbook.
