This is an up-to-date and interesting look at diet and recipes of today. The author provides the reader with methods and objectives, and tells the reader what to avoid in managing care and relationships with food. While it does filter some of the misinformation that's seen on TV and heard on the radio, the book is filled with unreferenced and unsubstantiated health-altering factoids all throughout. It also fails to attempt to solve the world's real food problem from a personal and collaborative standpoint. Therefore, a far better choice is Naheed Ali's "The Obesity Reality: A Comprehensive Approach to a Growing Problem".

The first recipe I tried was for the baked onion rings. They were yummy. Didn't miss the fried ones at all. My niece who is a very fussy teenager couldn't believe how good they were. I teamed them with turkey burgers as well as the Pudding Milkshakes. It was a hit. I am having company tonight and I can't wait to make the Spinach Artichoke dip. She gives you great ideas for cutting down the sugar, even if you don't use Splenda. She lightens up recipes that are not hard to do. It's about making the small changes that have the greatest impact on your diet. I don't even notice the "stuff" that is missing. I'm aleady down 10lbs. This is an added bonus. I like the fact that if you are on Weight Watchers she gives you the points information, along with all the other important nutritional information. I plan on giving this as a gift to a friend who uses Weight Watchers and is a cookbook collector like me.

I bought this cookbook for my mom but decided to test out some recipes before I gave to her to see if she'd actually use it. I have no idea if she uses the book but I loved the food so much that I bought a copy for myself. I've made tons of the recipes so far...sure, some don't come out perfect but most things are great and I would highly recommend!

I have had the book about 2 weeks and have tried several recipes. The recipes are easy to follow and to make. They have been very tasty and so much healthier than similar recipes. It is amazing how tasty these recipes have been with the sugar and fat so reduced. The pictures are great and certainly make you want to try them. My dishes have come out looking very similar too. Overall this is a wonderful cook book that I would reccomend. It would make a great gift for all who like tasty food while still being healthy.

Nice to find a book that has the Weight Watchers points included...although in this book they are for old Points system not the new POINTSPLUS system. Hope her new book has the new system in it. As a diabetic, need all the nutritional information, not just what the points value is. Also, need the sodium info.

Good for some....I didn't like that the ingredients used were not necessarily healthy. but good in a pinch. I think for others who are not necessarily as health concious it would be good. And great to learn portion control. Easy to follow and nice recipes.Overall, good - though not for me personally.

I just love this cookbook. This cookbook uses items that you already have, you don't have to buy things that you will never use again. They also supply the weight watchers points. I was so surprised that I liked the recipes using splenda because I do not like splenda in my beverages, but it taste great in the recipes. I can't even choose my favorite recipes. I use this bookbook everyday.

I absolutly love this book. My boyfriend loves fried foods and it just to much for me so i started cooking at least three meals a week from this book something different every week and he loves the food. What he loves most is that he doesn't feel weighted down after. My the cheese cake for a family gathering tonight and they couldn't believe that it was made healthy. This is the absolute best cook book i have ever bought and i have a big collection of cookbooks A MUST HAVE IN THE KITCHEN EVEN IF YOUR NOT A HEALTHY EATER THE FOOD TASTE GREAT AND YOU'RE MISSING OUT IF YOU DON'T HAVE THIS BOOK

This is a great cookbook for cutting calories and sugars. The best part of the book is it has everyday favorites with a fraction of the calories yet no one knows the difference. It also has all the nutritional value and weight watcher points given on each recipe.

When I downloaded book nearly every recipe has a ? in it instead of the measurement amount. Have been emailing "customer service" (I hate to use that term because they really don't offer any service) for weeks and they have not been able to fix the problem, refuse to refund my money, and now are just ignoring me. The book itself may be good, but I've been unable to make any of the recipes as I don't know what quanity of the ingredient to add.
