I really like the Taste of Home cookbooks - they are definitely favorites of mine and this book is now added to my list of favorites. At first I worried at first that it would be a lot like the other books I have, but it definitely has new recipes and diet ideas. The diet plan is really straightforward and gives 6 weeks of sample menus with lots of ideas to personalize the menus. I even enjoyed the stories of people who successfully followed the plan and gave their unique tips. I've only had the chance to make a handful of recipes, which I found to be easy to make and without a lot of fuss or hard-to-find ingredients; I am a good cook and like to experiment, but lately have been wanting a diet plan that was simple enough to follow but varied enough to keep me interested - and I might have found that in this book. The book is arranged in various categories, such as by calorie count and meal (for example, 100 cal snacks, 101-200 cal breakfasts) and there is also a section for slow-cooker recipes, 8 ingredients or less recipes, and 20 minute meals. The index helps you find a recipe if you really have a hankering for something in particular since it might be a challenge to find something specific in these categories. The index lists by ingredient and by recipe name, so it's pretty easy to use, so that last week when I had a bunch of asparagus I could look easy under that ingredient and was delighted by seeing several recipes (I ended up with the basaltic asparagus - delicious and only 45 calories!). I also like that the recipes have a nutritional breakdown so that I can also calculate protein, fiber and other important stuff to help me stay on track with my nutritional goals. And a photo of each dishes makes it appetizing!

And as a bonus - the book also comes with a year's subscription to the Taste of Home Healthy Cooking magazine. I haven't sent in the postcard yet, but I am looking forward to it.
