Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Best known from TV's The Biggest Loser, weight-loss guru Michaels presents a well-meaning collection of 125 recipes designed to meet specific health and fitness goals. Though she has no formal training in nutrition, Michaels asserts that most health problems are caused by metabolic hormonal imbalances; charging forward without any cited sources, Michaels includes a list of "amazing health benefits" with each recipe (Roast Herbed Turkey Breast with Orange-Cranberry Sauce, for example, is meant to boost metabolism and immunity, improve mood and digestion, fight cancer, and aid the heart). Dogma and posturing aside, these tasty, healthy recipes are likely to please. Michaels does her best to avoid esoteric ingredients, and dishes like Coconut-Curry Steamed Mussels and Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce would be right at home in a traditional cookbook. Others, like Watermelon Soup with Blackberries and Jicama, or Ginger Shrimp Rolls with Green Papaya Slaw, won't make dieters feel like they're settling. Less concerned with calories or fat, Michaels emphasizes the benefits of foods like beans (fiber), cranberries (anti-bacterial, gum disease-fighting properties), and cinnamon (helps normalize blood sugar levels); while some claims seem glib ("If you suffer from asthma, eat lots of apples!"), Michaels's suggestions are, at worst, harmless and delicious.

I am extremely impressed! Jillian is not known for cooking, but it is evident that she consulted & collaborated with the right people to introduce a way of eating that is healthy AND completely do-able for a longterm lifestyle change.

I have many cookbooks...those that teach (e.g. Joy of Cooking etc), those with great photos, those from specific chefs and/or restaurants, those from particular regions or ethnic areas, those that limit something (like low salt or diabetic), those that promote a product (add a can of this to make that), those that only use fresh foods & organic products, those that are designed for quick meals or multiple meals, those that expand on a particular eating trend...get the picture? Most of my cookbooks have something in common: I purchased them for a few recipes that grabbed my attention. Each cookbook comes off the shelf infrequently and typically go back up on the shelf when I find that I don't have the ingredients or the time needed. Even the "new way of eating" or "diet" cookbooks are not sustainable, as the attempt to make daily food "special" has made it impractical or undesireable for weekly menus. Very few of these other (best-selling) cookbooks has entered my life more than a few times per year.

Master Your Metabolism Cookbook is different. After receiving, I opened it just to browse through the recipes, and ended up reading it cover to cover like a novel. HAVE YOU EVER READ A COOKBOOK COVER TO COVER IN ONE SITTING? There is so much great information! The design is really good--things are easy to find. The health benefits of each recipe are listed, along with calorie/nutrient info. You can refresh your memory with the related nutrition facts & explanations as you prepare your meal.

I read Master Your Metabolism and it changed everything for me, was exactly the information I needed to finally lose weight and get healthy. This cookbook was on my IMMEDIATE ORDER list as soon as I found out it was being released, and it did not disappoint. FANTASTIC yummy gourmet healthy recipes that help me stay on track and still eat really good food! I could do this forever! I've lost 22 pounds in 2 1/2 months and I'm still going, feeling like I could eat this way for the rest of my life.

We got this book in the house a couple of weeks ago and I tried out a few recipes from it... absolutely delicious. Even people with natural aversions to the words "healthy" or "organic" were conned into trying the muffins ("honey this is your best experiment yet!") and the curried chicken with cilantro, plus the thai green curry barramundi (substituted halibut) were beyond delicious. Especially since they were cooked by me, someone with the culinary skills of a klingon (yay, novice-friendly). I cranked my rating for this to five stars because everything I have tried has gotten rave reviews and I have yet to find a 'miss'.

Highly recommended, but be warned, there are no photographs of the food. I know some like the visual appeal, but in a way this is preferable to me since I am forced to focus on the nutritional values beside each recipe rather than how pretty photoshop made it.

I love Jillian Michaels and after reading Master Your Metabolism I HAD to purchase this cookbook. I read the reviews and some people expressed concern about some recipes being too complicated or requiring too many "different" ingredients. I thought they might be exaggerating but there is definitely a kernel of truth to that criticsm. A lot of these meals require a fair amount of forethought and prep time (it's obvious that she partnered with a chef on this). There are several types of oils (sesame, coconut etc.), flours, syrups and spices that I've never had on hand that I needed to add to my grocery list. But, it's a nice resource with great information and inspiring recipes.

I ordered this book a few weeks ago and I am so glad I did! I didn't read her original "Master Your Metabolism" book, so I was thankful that she recapped a lot of the main points from it in this cookbook. I learned a lot about hormones and the roles they play in our bodies. I've made several of the recipes so far, and they have all been good. My husband's not a huge vegetable fan, and he even asked for seconds of the Baked Ratatouille! Her fudge brownies are a great substitute for regular ones, and they're only 86 calories each. As other people have mentioned, I really like the sidebars throughout the cookbook that give tips on buying and storing food, how to go organic without breaking your budget, and the best ways to cook things to maximize their nutritional value. I can definitely tell that my body feels better eating this way. Thanks Jillian!

We started on Jillian Michaels' 13 week Body Revolution program two weeks ago. Last week, we began fixing recipes from her "Fat Burning Meal Plan." We wanted a bit more variation, so we bought the Master Your Metabolism cookbook. The recipes are DELICIOUS, and each one lists the number of calories per serving, the balance of carbs, fats and protein, and the sodium. It also describes the health benefits of each recipe based on the nutrients in the ingredients. In the intro, Jillian explains what nutrients she is emphasizing, what they do for you, what foods contain the desired nutrients, and what foods to avoid.
There is a vegetarian chapter, which is 30 pages long, as well as a meat chapter, a fish chapter, a salads chapter, soups, breakfasts, snacks and desserts.
