Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Dieters are visually motivated. That's the core secret behind Dr. Howard Shapiro's innovative Food Awareness Training program and this refreshing cookbook. The New York–based physician doesn't present chapter after unremitting chapter of dietary catechism; instead, he augments his text with 170 memorable, full-color photographs of food equations. By showing readers what their food choices mean, Shapiro helps would-be dieters to apply those calorie and nutrition lessons to their life.
Publishers Weekly
Well known for his highly successful eating plan, Shapiro has produced a cookbook to compliment the strategy. Reiterating the adage "If you do what you did, you get what you got," he argues that people need to make changes they can live with. He offers his modified food pyramid as well as recipes and large, bold photos to illustrate his healthy alternatives to everyday fare. These photos can be particularly revealing when demonstrating, for example, how much healthier and satisfying a large portion of his Roasted Vegetable Quiche than is a third of a buttered bagel. Many recipes have a "Quick" sign that make them ideal for a hectic lifestyle, such as the Pan-Grilled Chicken with Grapes and Thyme. Recipes are provided for every occasion and food type; he insists no food is off-limits but that low-calorie choices can always be made, such as the spicy Pumpkin, Corn, and Lime Soup, as well as the Roasted Pepper and Basil Dip. While Shapiro does intersperse somewhat distracting interviews with famous personalities, his otherwise straightforward cookbook makes an ideal companion to his highly popular eating plan. (Jan.)
