Back on track,
This review is from: Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200: 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories (Paperback)
As a life-time Weight Watchers member, I've known all the basics, and tried time and time again to get back on track. I had my staple go-to foods, but was bored and needed something different to keep me on my toes and add some variety. Without that, the drive-thrus and restuarnats were such easy mind-less alternatives. I struggled, until I picked up the 1st HG book and instantly felt like I had something new and exciting to get me refocused and make losing those extra pounds (courtesy of the drive thrus) easier. Most recipes are inspired by restaurant favorites, with a fraction of the calories and fat. Being single, they are perfect as most are for 1 or 2 servings (a plus since making some recipes tends to get expensive when making for only 1, and leftovers from 4-6 servings often go to waste). Plus most are so quick and easy to make they fit perfectly into my on-the-go lifestyle. Since I enjoyed the 1st book so much, I pre-ordered the 2nd and have already tried 3-4 recipes in the 2 days I've had it. Been satisfied with them all, and anxious to try more! I highly recommend HG's books to anyone looking to make quick and easy meals and stay within your "weight watchers" budget. I would also recommend to anyone who is tired of the same-old foods, and looking for something new to add back some variety and make weight loss fun! The books, coupled with the website and daily emails are a great way to keep focused, enjoy restaurant-inspired meals, get new ideas, and stay on track!
