Biggest Loser Is A Winner! April 1 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the past couple of months, I have been cooking exclusively from the Biggest Loser cookbooks and loving it. We (my husband, sons, and myself) have been impressed with every recipe (with one exception--I found out too late that we are not fans of blue cheese). The newest addition to the BL family of books, 6 Weeks to a Healthier You, is no exception. The book is written in an incredibly user-friendly format and features season 9 contestants from The Biggest Loser television program. Each week specifically targets a health issue, including the prevention and reversal of diabetes, lowering high blood pressure, cancer prevention, and boosting your immune system. As with many of the previous Biggest Loser books, each menu is accompanied by easy to follow instructions for exercising, valuable information and tips, and inspirational tidbits from The Biggest Loser contestants.

I admit that the main reason I purchased this book was for the recipes. Some of my family's favorites so far are: Sizzling Ginger Pork, Sweet Pepper-Chicken Sandwich, Berry-Licious Oatmeal, Banana Fudge Smoothie, Mexican Turkey Burgers, and My German Lover. Every recipe calls for readily available ingredients, the directions are simple to follow, and the results are delicious and healthy.

I love ALL the Biggest Loser Books! July 19 2010
By S. Azzouz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I absolutely love ALL the Biggest Loser books! Yes, the info is the same as the previous ones before but basically, aren't they all?? There is nothing new or different about losing weight now, or in the past: get off your duff and exercise, choose healthier foods, eliminate sweets/sugar, drink lots of water...EVERY diet book says the same things; its just how it is packaged and said in a way that motivates YOU as the one reading it, to do it.That is why BL is so popular in the first place; the motivation they give the average person, is amazing.

The information is basic, honest and things we already know but need hearing again; the stories, pictures and lives of the former and current contestants are inspiring and motivating. The recipes are simple, easy and taste great! Banana fudge smoothie? Who wouldn't want to drink that? Yummm!! I just saw a review that said the recipes were too hard and that many of the ingredients most people don't have lying around the pantry or kitchen......Ummm, you mean salt? Pepper? Fruit? Oatmeal? Where do you live that you can't find that at a local supermarket or even Farmer's Market? And unless you are SUPER lazy, how can the recipes be too difficult? Really?

I can't wait til season 10 starts in a few months! The book is good, the recipes are good and for beginners, it is a great book to start out with to ease yourself into a new life of health and fitness.

Informative but....... July 29 2010
By Kate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read the book and believe the information is very interesting and informative, I am a little frustrated in the fact that from day to day I have to purchase another grocery list of items to prepare a new soup or meal and I have a tone of ingredients left over that just seem to go to waist, I feel like it is a waist of groceries and is expensive, I was really excited to start this and get on a biggest loser plan but financially it is really not feesable for me, I guess I will follow the instructions and try to incorporate the meal plans in more than just one day. On the more positive side, since I have been on it I do not feel hungry and I do feel that the meals and snacks are filling and satisfying.

Not what I thought it was Jan. 15 2012
By natejrsmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a case of buyers remorse. I think the book has too much on the show/season and not enough plan....Will probably donate the book to my local library.
