Featuring 150 nutritious, balanced recipes, this is a book about feeding your body, not starving it. It's a celebration of the abundant variety of nutritious, delicious foods that support your health, while satisfying your appetite.
So, when I saw Eating For Life, I was excited until I picked it up. It smacks of pure commercialism. The photographs of the recipes all include pictures of the specific brand name items called for. It's just an advertisement book.
There is not one bit of nutrition information... which makes sense when you see things in it like French Toast and syrup. The book is full of recipes that the Body For Life program would never recommend. In comparison, I checked half a dozen nearby recipe books when I looked at Eating For Life. Every other book I looked at, whether it was succulent chocolate desserts all the way to low-fat diet books, had complete nutrition information. So why not this one? Because Bill Phillips knew that these recipes would not withstand public scrutiny of the nutrition information.
Get Better Homes and Gardens New Dieter's Cookbook instead. I did. It is full of great recipes, beautiful presentation photos, and complete nutrition information.
And along with the BHG book. Get Body For Life. Skip Eating For Life.
And for others like me, searching for healthy, easy to prepare recipes that taste good -- this book is everything you've been looking for! Good luck.
