More Than a Cookbook—A One-of-a-Kind Toolkit to Help You Make Smart Calorie Decisions Every Time You Eat

You know that balancing the calories you take in and burn off is the foundation of weight control. But actually achieving that balance between eating and exercise is a daily challenge for most of us. Now, The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook provides a fresh, sane approach for everyone seeking good health—and great food.

Here is an essential repertoire of 200 smart recipes—nutrient-rich, delicious, foolproof, and ideal for busy individuals and families. Every recipe tells you its calorie count—and also tells you how many minutes of walking or jogging it takes for a woman or man to burn those calories off, so you’ll be able to visualize what calories mean as never before. All the recipes are below 400 calories per serving—and most are below 200!

The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook also delivers:

  • An introduction to the world of calories—what they are, how our bodies use them, and why we don’t have to exercise off every last calorie we eat—by distinguished Cornell nutrition professor and author Malden Nesheim, PhD
  • A guide to determining your daily calorie and exercise needs
  • Helpful nutrition stats (including diabetic exchanges) for every recipe
  • “Calorie combo”and “calorie cut” suggestions that help you formulate daily and weekly menus that fit your calorie needs
  • Plenty of vegetarian and gluten-free options
  • Dozens of tips on ingredients, equipment, prep, and cooking
  • An extensive appendix of nearly 1,000 popular foods and drinks with their calorie values and nutritional info—and much, much more!

This is a review from Yukiko Jacques, wife of Stephen. This book is great !!! and this is the type of cooking book I wanted for a long time! It's a practical cookbook contains very delicious receipes under 400 calories. EACH RECEIPE UNDER 400 CALORIES! I was motivated to cook at home, immediately after I looked at this lovely and delicious-looking photos on this book and I became a lot slimmer, although I was not on a strict diet at all. I just enjoyed cooking and eating smarter and healthier, and the results were amazing. I highly recommend this book for anyone who want to stop looking at many cookbooks and use just one really good cookbook with delicious recipes which do not go wrong, without worrying at all about gaining weight!

Catherine Jones, Elaine Trujillo and Malden Nesheim have teamed up and created a phenomenal cookbook, The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook. This body of work transcends well beyond its 200 everyday recipes in that it is an exceptional reference point and source of information. In the first 34 pages of this book, Jones and Trujillo address the importance of understanding what makes our respective ‘temples’ of our bodies tick and more importantly, the necessity of engaging with the overall process of living a healthy lifestyle. Jones opens the book with her chapter titled: A Cookbook for Everyone and breaks down her message with her own testimonial of what inspired her to delve into the importance of who we are, what we eat and why we eat it. Once the tone is set, the message evolves in the next chapter with a logical explanation of Understanding the World of Calories (by Malden Nesheim). There is a wealth of knowledgeable professionals throughout our world today who have done insurmountable studies surrounded with the premise of eat this, not that. However, what makes this particular book stand out is the simplicity and logic behind the intended message. We live in a society rife with ‘diet and weight loss,’ yet, there is a stronger sublime message of ‘do this, not that’ and, generally speaking, the end result is typically failed attempts and on to the next... The authors have virtually paved the way for the reader to understand the process of what it takes to make healthy food choices (and live a healthy lifestyle). The most valuable information for me personally were the two chapters devoted to determining daily caloric and exercise needs and the tools to get there: healthy recipes and shopping and cooking tips. It was time for me to put what I had learned to the test! This is the perfect time of the year for making soups and this book has some amazing recipes! Two of my personal favorites are Quick Zucchini-Basil Soup and Perfect Pumpkin Bread. Hello? It’s Fall. Who doesn’t want ‘comfort’ food sans the guilt? There is a guide paired with each of the 200 recipes that not only breaks down the nutritional value, but also provides what man or woman must do to work off those calories he or she just ingested. Sheer brilliance. This book has moved to the front of my pantry reserved for my cookbooks. Not only are the recipes easy to follow, but not once did I find an ingredient that I couldn’t pronounce (or not know what it was). The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook covers snacks, breakfast, desserts, dinner, vegetarian and a wealth of information. The message that resonates throughout this book is all the baker/cook needs to do is engage and the end result I personally believe is the perfect life balance: healthy food choices, exercise and feeling good! Bravo ladies and thank you for such a thorough and easy guide! Quill says: The Calories In, Calories Out Cookbook is the perfect balance of making smart food choices, cooking them and liking what you see in the mirror down the road!
