NOW, that being said, there are some great recipes in here, and if you can find the weirder ingredients, its fun to taste them. I'd probably opt for another one of his "Eat This" books and not necessarily the diet one. I mean, a lot of this book is dedicated to lifestyle, but most of us KNOW the lifestyle choices we have to change, and just want the yummy food that makes that possible!
Some reviews say sodium is high. Well to be honest you would be surprised on you own dishes how high sodium is, and you can make adjustments to that, for example instead of using canned white beans, make your own white beans from scratch which of coarse takes 24 hour process, but if you want to make everything with lower sodium, everyone should know you need to make from scratch then.
Also I didnt feel the portions was "to little" like some posts here say. I guess I have always been good with my portions so I think the portions are perfect.
As far as the one pizza comment there was one pizza recipe that you could have 1 1/2 to be under 300 cals now that is not bad. There are other pizza recipes where you can have 2 pieces. Eat a salad with it or have it as a snack. I think some people are WORST than a child complaining that he does not want to eat his veggies!
The first thing I made was the red velvet bars, which were horrible and formed a layer of oil on top of them overnight. Pretty much every dessert was terrible and had a strange texture. Cookies were so wet that they couldn't hold a shape to bake, and the lemon bars were incredibly sour and artificial tasting. The dish I was looking forward to most was the mac & cheese, one of my weaknesses. I happily tried making the recipe from the book, and it was absolutely disgusting. I threw it all in the trash, after spending a lot of time preparing and baking it. Most of the recipes in this book require a ton of ingredients, and the steps are a bit convoluted. If you don't pay attention, you'll use every bowl and pot in the house! The steps can definitely be simplified.
In the end, I got frustrated and simply gave up. I was tired of wasting time and money to make recipes that I threw in the trash after one bite. Despite all of this, there were a few really good recipes that I'll add to my repertoire: pesto chicken pasta, rocky road oatmeal, and chicken almondine. Coincidentally, these are the simplest recipes that used the most normal ingredients. Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend this book.
My only complaint is it's a lot to buy for one person. I just select four or five total meals to make, buy the ingredients (plus fruits and veggies) for those and eat them all week long. It would be too hard to make and to pack for lunch the variety of meals in a single week that he lists. Simplicity is best for me to stick with it.
