Great recipes! Love that high calorie foods are made to low calorie healthier options! I have yet to make something from it but I am excited to try!

interesting recipes Jan. 25 2010
By Alla S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
According to the introduction, "Cook Yourself Thin" by Lifetime Television is not a diet manual, but a cook book aimed at providing delicious recipes that help you lose weight. The colorful book is divided into sections like Breakfast, Starters, Mains, Sides/Soups/Salads, and Dessert. Each recipe includes the serving size and nutrients information, along with the list of ingredients and step-by-step instructions. About half of the recipes are accompanied by pictures.

Judging from the book's title, I was curious but initially prepared for standard veggie recipes and uninspiring meals that focused more on losing weight than wetting the appetite. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the majority of the recipes sounded exactly as promised--delicious. Examples of the recipes included were hot wings, pineapple mojito, strawberry shortcake, white pizza with roasted mushrooms, spaghetti surprise, BBQ salmon, new greek salad, mini blueberry muffins, cheese fries, chocolate volcano cake, violet smoothie, chicken cordon bleu, tiramisu, and many more.

I like the fact that most of the above food is definitely not something you would associate with dieting. As explained by the book, however, the key to losing weight wasn't depriving yourself of food, but adjusting the ingredients and controlling the amount you consume. The recipes themselves tend to stay on the short side. The less time-consuming ones have a lightning icon drawn next to them.

An added bonus is a special section at the end of the book, called "Menus," were recipes from the book along with their page numbers are organized into different categories like Girl's Night Out, Romantic Dinner for Two, Brunch, Game Night, Sunday Night Supper, Italian, Breakfast for Dinner, and etc. Overall, an impressive book.

Good stuff Sept. 23 2010
By Heather English - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought the first book because I loved the show. Sad that it didn't last long but changing the times and having odd hours of showings is never a good idea for a new show.

I liked the first book but wish there were more pictures. This book has the same problem.

Another thing is they have recipes that wouldn't appeal to alot of people. Some ingretients are very expensive as well. If you go on youtube they think spending $7 on ingretients for a snack is reasonable.

The reason I gave this book only 3 stars instead of five is there were alot of repeat recipes or recipes that had incorrect information in them (missing steps, missing ingretients etc)

better than the first book Feb. 20 2010
By markita6790 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very satisfied and not disappointed by this book . Although I liked the first book, it has many more recipes and I believe they taste better too. The updates on the people also helped with encouragement. The snack list of 100 calories or less was very useful.It seems to have more suggestions for variations of a recipe.For example, the chicken cordon bleu recipe has suggestions for a greek and mexican versions.

cook yourself thin faster cookbook- yummy! March 1 2010
By MereH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
So far, all recipes I have made have turned out delicious. Would not even know that they are calorie/fat conscious! the blintz pancakes are delicious! The fettucini with mushrooms is also good. Most recipes make at least 4 portions and are easy to cut in half if cooking for 2. I have the original cookbook, too and this is a great compliment. the TV show site gives a lot of the recipes online, but having all details , including pictures, in one place is quite handy!

I LOVE THIS COOKBOOK! Jan. 31 2011
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been dieting for several months now, and lost almost 30 pounds - but I've gotten to the point where I just can't have another plain, lean chicken breast and no-flavor veggies for one more meal! I decided to just go to counting calories for a while, and have promised myself to stay within 1200 calories per day - but with my regular cookbooks, I realized early on that this would be a daunting task. But then I found the Cook Yourself Thin cookbooks and decided to give them a try.

They are AMAZING!!! You cook with real food (no fake sugar & processed foods), and the taste is AWESOME!!! My favorite dish from this book (so far) is the Brown Butter Cobbler (made with real brown sugar, butter, apples & a few other ingredients) - with a calorie count in the 300's for this dessert, you get a lot of bang for your caloric buck (smile) - and it feels like you are indulging in a major cheat, yet it is easy to find a combination of meal & starter recipes to fill out the day, still coming under 1200 calories. *Note: this is the 2nd highest calorie count of all the dessert recipes in this book - most are much lower.

This book also includes several full color pictures of the recipes, which is really a nice touch - as well as several testimonials from people who lost weight & dress sizes from eating only recipes in the Cook Yourself Thin series.

I also started watching the Cook Yourself Thin show on t.v. - it is great to see how they help people who crave fast food and other high fat/high calorie comfort foods by creating similar tasting recipes that have greatly slashed the calories and fat. They cook the food right there and you can see the first reaction of the person they are cooking for when they take that first bite - and it is always a look of yummy surprise.

Another positive is that all of the recipes have easy to find ingredients, unlike some similar cookbooks.

Overall, I would highly recommend this cookbook to anyone trying to lose weight, as well as those who are looking for recipes to help them maintain their current weight - either way you'll find easy, great tasting recipes to keep you moving in the right direction!
