I liked the recipes, and I didn't find them any more time consuming than the cooking I did prior to dieting. I do most of my cooking on weekends, then store the food in tupperware and take to work. Considering the calories, I found the food tasteful! You have to remember the biggest fact about losing weight - you got to cut calories, and 1200 calories is the most helpful plan for me.

I got this book to make it easier to make healthful meals. The book is good. But it is a bit lacking in flavor. Meaning I wish I had the zeal to make these recipes. There is no appeal to go out after reading the recipes to make the dish. No photographs to appeal to this foodie. The good thing about this book is that there are menus so you can plan your entire day or week with meals. I have made a few of the meals nothing to write home about.

I found this book to be very accommodating and upfront with regards to which ingredients to use for each recipe. It was very adaptable and anyone who purchases this book will be compeletely satisfied. It was very informative and the ingredients were down to earth and not out of this world, like many of these recipes can be. I would highly recommend this as informative and enjoyable to read.

Most of the recipes in this book are horribly time consuming and have ingredients that you normally do not have around the house. In general, most recipes were too ritzy and really had no appeal.

Come on! 350 calories for breakfast, 400 for lunch & 450 for dinner? Talk about flavorless! Here's my idea of a flavorful diet with maximum calorie count Breakfast: 517, Lunch: 533 Dinner: 600 & on the diet in the book you can forget about dessert.

I love this cookbook. Most low-calorie recipes either have no taste or skimpy portions. I have tried 8 different recipes from this book so far and all of them were delicious and filling. While the recipes can be time consuming to make, they are well worth it. I've found it easier to make the lunch recipes in the evening and portion them out in tupperware to grab when heading out the door to work.

I didn't need a cook bok to tell me how to eat 1200 calories a day all you need to do is Watch your portions and calories when you hit 1200 hundred calories your done for the day. I allow my self 200 for breakfast and 300 to 350 for lunch and the rest for dinner I eat a lot of Lettuce and very little dressing and use your scale measuring cups and measuring spoons and pay attion to your calorie intake and you will lose weight. I walk 15 minutes a day and 12 week's I lost 30 ponds. and I eat all kinds of foods. and some times I even have calories left for an deseret.
