Format: Spiral-bound
It is not a large book but it is powerfully packed with 142 recipes that are not only delicious and healthy but created for weight loss, and keeping it off. Many are from dieters who successfully lost 60, 80...125 lbs and modified a family favorite recipe for their weight loss menu. The other recipes were created by the organization which published this book, Provida Life Science, the 6 Week Body Makeover Specialists.

Some of my favorites are Eye of Round with Pineapple Salsa, Chipotle Roasted Chicken with Potatoes, Candied Yam, Mighty Fine Meatloaf, Butter Rum Baked Apple, Mexican Rice, and Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing. It really is more like comfort food than diet food.

One thing I like about this book is that the great flavors are obtained with the use of spices and regular foods, not with salt and butter, so it is great for those who have to watch their sodium. Many ingredients are specified "nas" (no added salt) but the results are not bland. Some of the recipes use a small amount of Splenda but the person who doesn't want to use artificial sweetener can easily use sugar.

There are recipes for condiments and spice blends, which you don't normally see in cookbooks. For example, there are eight recipes for Spice Blends, a few Sauces and Dressings, and three Marinades. I found these a great way to make my old recipes more interesting and flavorful. For example, there are spice blends for Southwestern, Cajun, Roman, Hot, Fajita, Tex Mex, Fish and Chicken.

This is how many recipes are in each category: Breakfast =10, Turkey = 10, Chicken = 23, Beef = 22, Seafood = 24, Vegetarian = 14, Sides and Salads = 20, Desserts = 8, Spices = 8, Marinades = 3

I'll warn you that the Dessert section is sparse for a dessert lover like me.

This is a terrific cookbook for this eating program written by people who have been successful with their weight loss. The recipes are easy, delicious and a great help in figuring out that age-old question "What's for dinner?"
