The recipes are simple and easy, but far too few to make a good cookbook, let alone a diet cookbook. Everything I've cooked from it, has turned out. That lemon chicken is excellent. But there isn't much there! What is in there is pretty good in flavour, ease of preparation and relatively inexpensive.
The diet advice is sketchy at best. A little on portion control, a good comment on Italian American food as served by such popular joints like the Olive Garden. Basically pointing out that the way food is eaten in Italy is much different, pasta is a side dish, not a main dish, and it isn't usually swimming in cholesterol. BUT as diet advice goes, this isn't enough for most people to lose weight on. As a guide to the reason why Mediterranean diets work for health and weight loss, this is lacking.
However the nutritional analysis; calorie counts, fat, carb and protein grams at the back was EXCELLENT and I wish more cookbooks did that!
Edited to add: I've tried: Italian salad dressing page 41, Basil Lemon Drizzle p 48 which is very nice over chicken or fish, I did the swordfish recipe from page 51 using salmon and it was great. Garlic shrimp page 54, Pork chops on page 66, Chicken in lemon thyme marinade page 70, veal piccata (using chicken) page 189 and skinny snapper page 219.Read more ›
If you can find a cheap copy, I suggest bringing it to a white elephant gift exchange.
