I would suggest this book to anyone who is tired of being restricted to what they eat so they can lose weight. It has everyday realistic recipes that are easy to prepare yet very good. Also, if you want a no brains approach, it gives you a 6 week meal plan to follow, including snacks. Try it, you will love this book. I easily have 100's of cookbooks and this is one of my favorites.

Finally, cooking comfort food without all the calories and have it taste good. Also, adding a new twist to the old way of doing things without having to shop for a lot of unusual ingredients.

This is one of the best diet cookbooks I've come across for pleasing the WHOLE family. The recipes are easy to make, not strange (that is a big hit with the kids), and use easy to acquire ingredients. The photos are very good (especially for the children when THEY choose to cook).

Great for trying recipes in a new, creative way. It's really easy to find a favorite recipe with a healthier spin on it in this book.

Working on losing weight and love the TOH recipes - nice to have them lightened up and the caloric values of each serving. Would have liked the recipes to make one or two servings though ~ did a lot of reduction in ingredients so that I had a diverse menu.

I use the recipes in this book to help me track calories and manage portion control. The recipes were largely easy to make and tasty. The drawback for me was that there weren't many one dish meal recipes for busy days.

This cookbook is wonderful if you are trying to watch your waistline, but want some great meals. The photos are great and more than one recipe is on a page, which makes them short and sweet!

The recipes are great, TOH recipes always are. Considering the money, I expected no glitches. I think I will just get the actual book next time.
