    "The Shredded Chef", to me, is similar in appearance a

    "The Shredded Chef", to me, is similar in appearance and presentation to one of the glossy photographed books from Rodale (Like Men's Health or The Abs Diet). Because of that, I wasn't really holding my breath. While I liked reading books like "The Abs Diet Cookbook", I have grown a little impatient with books like this. In my case, I get only a few recipes out of them. The rest of the recipes involve ingredients that I have never heard of, cost too much to get, or involve cooking techniques that are above my head.




    This book was a little different.




    "The Shredded Chef" was a collection of recipes that was almost felt heaven-sent. The ingredients involved simple, (mostly) natural ingredients that I could easily found around the house or for a few bucks. The instructions were very simple to follow. There was also a lot of variety, especially in the meat dishes, which will go a long way in "Paleo-in-transition" home.Speaking of Paleo, a lot of the recipes were Paleo (Steak & Sweet Potato Salad, Classic Cobb Salad, and Sweet Potato & Sausage Fritatta) or Paleo-like (Sweet Potato Muffins).




    As a result, I have a lot of recipes along with some almost-recipes awaiting Paleo modification (if possible).




    The only problem that I encountered with this book was navigation. The Table of Contents does not list individual page numbers with recipes, so you have to dig around to find the recipe you want. (The author does provide an online website to help with this.) 




    In short, I recommend this book especially for the "musclehead" who wants a new collection of recipes as well as the skinny kid who is looking for quick meals and muscle mass.Everyone, though, will find a quick and healthier recipe in this book.




    I will definitely be purchasing additional books from the author.




    Note: This book was received free as part of a Google+ contest. The review was completed because I simply like the book!

    This book explains in simple terms how to lose fat and build muscle and gives a ton of great recipes that are separated by those that are for losing weight and those that are for building muscle, which is a very useful way to sort them. I especially appreciate the low-calorie, low-carb, and low-fat recipes because they make losing weight much more enjoyable.

    Mr. Matthews writes great books and this is no exception.
