Overview

The road to a healthier lifestyle starts with small decisions and better choices. Now, with The Biggest Loser Simple Swaps, you can get healthy by simply swapping your old food, habit, and lifestyle choices for healthier versions every day. With 100 simple swaps that cut calories, save money, and provide better nutrition as well as more than 30 mouthwatering recipes that put these swaps into action, getting fit and healthy has never been easier. Learn how to:

  • Swap lasagna noodles for veggies. Pasta used to be a guilty pleasure for many Biggest Losers—until they learned to make a healthy version. Try replacing lasagna noodles in your favorite recipe with slices of grilled zucchini or eggplant. Better yet, try the Veggie Lasagna recipe in Chapter 4!
  • Swap traditional yogurt for Greek-style yogurt. Greek-style fat-free yogurt contains the same number of calories as regular fat-free yogurt but has twice the protein and half the carbs. It’s a great base for dips, too. Try using it in the French Onion Dip in Chapter 5!
  • Swap sugary cereals for whole grains. The slow release of energy from complex carbs will help you feel full and keep your blood sugar steady and your energy revved. Or turn to Chapter 5 to make your own Hi-Pro Vanilla Breakfast Grains!

Throughout the book, you’ll also find advice and tips from The Biggest Loser experts, trainers, and the contestants themselves, who understand the challenges of fitting lifestyle changes into a busy schedule. These simple, budget-friendly swaps can make a major difference in your health and weight loss efforts. Start swapping—and losing—today!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Cheryl Forberg and the Biggest Loser coaches don't claim that this book will cut your weight by hundreds, but they do offer persuasive evidence that these simple food, habit, and lifestyle "swaps" will put you on the way to a leaner, healthier you. With the help of The Biggest Loser Simple Swaps, you're not only likely to slash your daily calorie count; you will probably also lower your weekly food bill. And perhaps the best news is that the alternatives are tasty!

    Latest Loser "SWAP" book is practical and easy

    THis is perhaps the best loser "cookbook" or "food/diet" book yet. Instead of trying to put you on all new dishes or a new meal plan, it takes what you like and already do - and re-invents it. So it is very practical - and helps you deal with temptation of dishes you want - and adjust them so you can have them with a lot less cost in terms of calories, sugars and carbs. And that feels comfortable too. It really guides you with simple ways to innovate and calibrate - and some of the dishes you re-invent are great. Even if you don't go the whole way substituting certain veggies for pasta, it all helps. And often saves money at the same time! I started using it last week (got a secret advance copy!) and it is pretty impressive, and I have lost 4 pounds already. There are some good new recipes beyond the swaps, and lots of advice from BL participants and trainers. Kudos to Cheryl and Melissa - the books get better and better in content and style.

    Simply Great

    This book has helped me in my weight loss efforts. I know many critics love to bash the Biggest Loser show, but the books and weight loss program are excellent. Sound nutritional advice. I like the ideas presented in this book for swapping higher calorie/lower nutritional foods for more healthy options. Whether you're dieting or not, this book has good ideas in it to help anyone make healthier choices.

    This book contains a lot of advice and stories about previous contestants on the Biggest Loser. Very few recipes. Not worth the money.
