Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

For five decades, Weight Watchers has been helping home cooks promote family health in hunger-quenching ways. To celebrate their half century landmark, they are issuing a cookbook with 250 breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes. Some are retooled favorites; some of them new; all are accompanied by their PointsPlus values. If the Biscuit-Topped Chicken Pot Pie doesn't grab you, the Asian Noodle Soup with Tofu and Shrimp will.

Publishers Weekly
For 50 years Weight Watchers has been helping dieters make sound choices through its science-based approach to nutrition, enabling people to enjoy their favorite foods while losing weight. In many cases that involves purchasing premade meals and following the program's point-based program (now called PointPlus, part of the new Weight Watchers 360 program). To complement that system, these points are included with each of the 250 recipes here, enabling followers to whip up classics like Cobb Salad or vegetable lasagna at home. But readers don't need to participate in the program to find worthwhile recipes—nutritional information is provided in conjunction with the points. Those expecting tired, recycled recipes from the program's early days will find them, but they'll also find calorie-friendly takes on Pad Thai, Tofu-Lentil Burgers, Oven-Fried Fish and Chips, Lamb Kebabs, and Boston Cream Pie. By relying on healthy cooking methods (such as baking instead of frying), using low-calorie and reduced-fat ingredients, and imparting flavor with fresh herbs and spices, readers will find they can create healthy, toothsome meals at home without sacrificing taste. That's great news for Weight Watchers followers, but those outside the program will also find this to be another perfectly acceptable low-cal, low-fat cookbook. (May)
Library Journal
Like the recently revised Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook, this collection of updated classics supplements the new Weight Watchers 360 program. Emphasizing retro comfort foods like chicken cordon bleu, cheddar corn pudding, and Boston cream pie, the book aims to dispel notions that diet food can't be crave-worthy. Each recipe includes nutritional analysis and a "PointsPlus" value based on the amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, and fiber per serving. Using the secondary index, readers can easily choose recipes by points value. VERDICT The popular and highly rated Weight Watchers diet has undergone changes, so most libraries should update their collections.

    Tasty and easy to follow, a must have!

    I have been on weight watchers for about a year now and have lost 35 lbs. that being said I still love food! This book is definitely a food lover's cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and tasty. I would recommend this to the beginning or middle range cook who is trying to be healthy but have tons of flavor. Even my husband will eat what I make from this book.

    The only draw back is the lack of pictures, in fact I have made almost all the recipes that have actual images since I pick with my eyes first lol.

    A good collection of recipes. We have liked most of the recipes (for main courses and salads) that we have tried. Could have included more pork recipes, but otherwise the variety is good. We especially like the hamburger recipe (cover item) and the chicken cordon blue. Always fun to try new things.
