At 275 pounds, Audrey Johns was unhealthy and unhappy—until the day she vowed to give up the “fake food” and taught herself to cook her favorites from scratch. Within eleven months, Audrey mastered the kitchen, began to take better care of herself, and lost more than 150 pounds—over half her body weight.
Now, Audrey shares her story, insights, and clean eating recipes to help you slim down. Lose Weight by Eating includes more than 130 mouthwatering recipes for family favorites, including pasta, scones, fried chicken, nachos, meatloaf, and cookies—all bursting with flavor and fewer than 500 calories per serving. Most recipes use simple and inexpensive smart swaps and are full of hidden vegetables that keep you feeling fuller longer, and all are picky-kid-friendly and husband-approved.
Imagine losing eight to sixteen pounds the first week and fifteen to twenty-five pounds a month eating skinny pizzas with only 125 calories per slice or 150-calorie cheesecake bars! Lose Weight by Eating lets you enjoy these delights and more, such as “Jelly Doughnut” French Toast, California Club Pizza, Whole Roasted Chicken with Potatoes and Onions, Veggie Packed Lasagna, Cheddar Stuffed Turkey Burgers, Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip with Fruit, and Skinny Cheesecake with Raspberry Drizzle.

I purchased your cookbook this past week... I LOVE it! I have many, many "diet" cookbooks and haven't made one recipe from them. I have already made 3 of yours. I have your beer chili in the crockpot, made a batch of applesauce and waiting to enjoy a breakfast cookie in the morning! Everything looks so delicious and best of all... easy to make!! Thank you for all your hard work!
