If you're looking to lose weight in 2011 (and beyond) or to maintain a loss, this book lays out a way to eat 1200 to 1600 (or 2000, if you're a big guy or super active) calories a day. I really love how it's in the EAT THIS NOT THAT vibe--lots of photographs of appealing snacks/meals that isn't married to an ideal. Some books are only low-carb or high carb or Paleo or "clean." This one allows for people who like convenience/packaged/frozen/fast food options on rushed or lazy days. (I am not much of a cook, so I like convenience foods and eating out.)

I am now starting a 1200 calorie program. I lost almost 35 pounds in the last 6 months by cutting down from 2400 calories (at which I was maintaining a morbidly obese weight) to roughly 1800 at first, then between 1400 to 1600, and now I'm lowering the bar.

Three meals selected from the roughly 400 calorie suggestions fits into a long-term plan for weight loss. Four meals from this book fit into a long-term plan for maintenance. (Rough estimates. Some petite or post-menopausal or sedentary woman will gain at that level, some will still lose). Page 14 has a guide to help you decide how many of these meals will suit your needs.

Lots of tips. Portion size estimation helpers. Quickie recipes from various dietitians, food celebrities, etc on " My Favorite 400 Calorie Meal"--a very nice detail.

If you're newish to dieting and are not portion or calorie-counting savvy, be sure to take the quiz on pp 6-7 on "How Many Calories Are In..." and then you see various photos of meals and snacks. (You will get hungry. Read this for reference AFTER you have eaten. Or eat one of the recommended meals first. Heh.) Also look at the "Healthy or Hefty" chart on pp 26-27.

Recently introduced on Rachel Ray by Prevention editor, Liz Vaccariello, The 400 Calorie Fix describes itself as an easy way to get slim. Getting slim can be very difficult but The 400 Calorie Fix manages to simplify the process.

The guidelines behind the 400 Calorie Fix are easy. Eat 400 calories at four meals a day. The book teaches you to view food via a 400 calorie lens. 400 calories four times a day equals 1600 daily calories. This will result in weight loss for many people. Eat one less meal if you are sedentary. If you are very active eat one more.

To simplify the 400 calorie meal the book gives a wide variety of options. There is the plate method; mentally divide your plate into six sections. Fill one section with protein, two with starches like bread and grains and three with non-starchy veggies.

And there are other easy methods of building 400 calorie meals that suit your lifestyle. Sections include 400 calorie packaged meals (name brands given), 400 calorie take out meals, 400 calorie quick fix/no cook meal, 400 calorie soup, sandwich and salad recipes and many other ways to make your meal.

No food is off limits. Yes you can have chocolate, ice cream, pizza and other goodies. The authors use a star system. Blue is for protein, orange for fiber, red for good fats and green for fruits and veggies. They suggest you collect one of each a day to make sure you are eating nutritiously. Very easy to use.

I cannot imagine the work that must have gone into this book. An extensive array of recipes, mouth watering photographs, tons of tips and hints. So much so that the book can be overwhelming at first. The best way to work with the book is to go to the table of contents and pick the chapter that offers the type of 400 calorie meal you want.

This is the second time I've bought this book. The first was 9 months earlier and the best investment in myself I've ever made. I've been a dieter for many years. The 400 Calorie Fix changed my life. I diet no more. The proof is the 38 pounds I've lost since starting the Fix. The Fix is a Way of Life not a diet. The Fix teaches you how to eat everything and anything in moderation. No more denying yourself dessert or a cocktail.
I bought the second book for a friend that wanted to know my secret to my weight loss. It's no secret. They've been telling us how to do it for years. Now they're telling us in terms we can understand. It's all in there. Fast food, desserts, buffets, happy hour, backyard bbq's and so much more.
