Introduction

New Year's resolutions. For some people, they act as a road map to help navigate the year ahead. For others, they're nothing more than a nuisance and reminder of past -- and present -- missteps. Yet as the holiday hoopla winds down, before you start mulling the resolution issue, ask yourself this question: What can I do to make my life healthier in the coming year? Let's face it: Being healthy has a trickle-down effect on your life. If you're in good shape, you can do more and feel it less. Your state of mind also reaps a benefit or two -- when everything is working smoothly, there's less for you to worry about, and that improves your overall quality of life.

We suggest that you start thinking seriously about taking on the number-one resolution of the majority of people in this country: losing weight. Our guess is that if you've picked up this cookbook, you're probably already on the weight-loss path; we're here to provide you with a little fuel so you can stay the course.

Weight Watchers Simply Delicious was created with you in mind. Based on Weight Watchers Winning Points program, we focused on recreating familiar recipes with deliciously different tastes and flavors. We even kept that popular resolution in mind: No recipe is more than 8 POINTS per serving. We've also streamlined the ingredients and directions so you can whip up any one of the lunches, brunches, snacks, entrees, or sides whether you have a half an hour or half a day to get a meal on the table. We also think these recipes will become staples for your family because they taste simply delicious.

Good luck in staying the course and reaching all your healthy goals!

I considered joining WW for a long time before actually doing so, entirely because I *love* to cook and was afraid to put my favorite recipes through the POINTS calculator. As it turned out, I was right to be afraid (mostly because I've never met a a dairy product I didn't like and my recipes reflected such) but that no longer matters because I've now got a new favorite cookbook.
I don't eat red meat or fowl, but almost every such recipe here is easily adapted to a non-meat version...AND there's an entire chapter devoted to vegetarian dishes. The layout is easy to read and use, the ingredients not too wacky but definitely not boring, and my results have been amazing...though perhaps the best recommendation I could give it is that not one of my dinner guests has known they're eating a WW recipe. Try this book - you won't be disappointed!

This is another great cook book put together by Weight Watchers. Thanfully they have given up the way to make recipes be counterparts of their high fat, high calorie cousins. This book will have you running to the store for a few ingredients for some of their recipes. They will be tasty. Honestly I loved this book as there are many good recipes that are much lower in points than 8. For those who have family that is not on the program, I think you will still be satisfied as the food is actually good. Their instructions are easy to follow, and while you may need to go to the store to pick up an ingredient or two, it works well. If you like a little variety, and don't mind using a special ingredient on occasion this book will work well for you.

This is a great book for food ideas. If the 4 weight watchers books I own, this one I use the most. I find the food selections in here best meet what I want to eat. Often friends join me for dinner (2-3 times a week) and they always comment they can't believe I'm on a diet. Given that information, if you're fighting the battle of the bulge and your family's eating habits are not helping, this might be a good book for you to use.

One warning I would give about this book is that each of the meals do require some prep time. More then I was originally expecting. So this is not the "fastest" book in the group I purchased. But the trade off is the meals (when you double the amount) make for great lunches the following day or two. So in the end, I`ve expanded my skills in the kitchen, I've made a better tasting meal for friends and myself, and I've lost weight doing it.

... is how many of the recipies turn out well the first time, and how many you would cook again. "Simply Delicious" meets both criteria. We haven't tried a recipe from this book we didn't like. Weight Watchers cookbooks are brilliant at presenting delicious and decadent recipes that won't leave you feeling deprived. For example, there's a yummy "Maple-Glazed Popcorn Snack Mix" with only 3 points (163 calories and 5 grams of fat) per serve. My husband didn't believe it was a Weight Watchers recipe, but made it anyway. Don't tell anyone, but we smuggle it into the movies! Then there's the "Cinnamon-Peach Almond Pancakes" and the "Confetti Corn Cakes", which make a great brunch with a little low-fat sour cream and smoked salmon on top. See what I mean about decadent?

Receipes are a little to complicated. Long lists of ingredients makes it hard to shop, and hard to cookup up a quick meal. Try the WTW "Cooking For 2" or "Slow Cooker" instead.

I can't say enough how good this cookbook is, it has the most appealing receipes that I have seen to date in WW cookbooks. I have planned weekly menues and have so many bookmarks it is unreal.

I have been using this book for a few months. The recipes I've tried are generally tasty, if sometimes bland, but it sorely needs an index by food, eg, beef, as another reviewer commented. Some of the recipes require creative thinking, and a bit of cooking experience. '3 large potatoes' can mean different things to different people, and if you want to use another type of potato? Equivalents in ounces or cups would be helpful. And "x cups of pasta" cooked?/uncooked? A novice would have a hard time with this. And some of the titles are more colorful than helpful. A meat salad doesn't mention the meat in the title, so finding it without an index is pretty difficult.

I enjoy the recipes, which are often different from my other low fat cookbooks, and the information is very helpful. So far, everything I've tried has been tasty. But the index at the back is very poorly done! Categories are not listed, such as "potatoes" or "beef;" the list often gives only the names of the dishes, listed by words like "crispy," "roasted," "warm" or "creamy", which is frustrating when you are looking to find a recipe for the ingredients you have. The book is not organized in the most helpful way, either, with pictures in groups, rather than next to the recipes themselves.
