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.
My husband is losing weight, 6 lbs the first week! I'm losing lbs. and gaining muscle. My daughter is even losing and she was a nutritional nut before starting this program with us. She was already slim but couldn't lose a small amount of fat around her middle and in one week she lost 3 lbs and that middle fat is gone. The best part is that she is eating so much more than she was before and she is feeling good about food again instead of reguarding it as her enemy.
Try the shakes. I usually loathe protein shakes, but these are really good and make me feel full of energy.
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.
