1.0 out of 5 stars Not for the extreme health nut, June 3, 2009
This review is from: Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200: 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories (Paperback)
I'm not a big fan of the Hungry girl recipes but there are a few I do like. The cheese sticks and peanut butter cups are really great! The main problem I see with this book is that it doesn't offer low-calorie HEALTHY recipes with NATURAL ingredients. Instead, most of the ingredients are artificial and more importantly, filled with TRANS FAT! I'd rather eat high calorie foods filled with good fats and gain a few then eat lower calorie trans fat filled food and get heart disease.

I have this book, and I'd like very much to know what you think is filled with trans fats in there. I haven't seen a single one! If you're going to trash a book, at least give more details....

I don't think the recipes are meant to be used all the time. If you have a craving for hot wings it's a lot better and a lot cheaper to use a recipe in this book to make them instead of going out and eating away all your calories for the day. You can't deny that the nutrition stats for the recipes in this and her other books are a lot better than the ones at your local McDonald's.

This book doesn't purport to offer HEALTHY NATURAL recipes. If you ready any of the reviews for any of her products, you'd realize that she relies on a lot of substitutes that are not natural. This book is for those people reducing calories, not looking for all natural organic foods. That's fine that you'd rather get fat and eat natural, but I'd rather lose some weight and every now and then use artificial sweeteners. Your rating is unfairly low based on the fact that you do like some of her recipes and also that you clearly didn't do any research before buying the book.
