This is my absolute favorite cookbook. I bought this when I first found out I have high cholesterol, and it is now my go-to. The portions are generous and the food is actually tasty- not just "this tastes good for something healthy." Plus, all the recipes I have made so far take less than half an hour, which makes it possible to have a delicious, healthy dinner even on a weeknight.

Thanks to these recipes from the American Heart Association, changing your diet to be low-fat AND low-cholesterol couldn't be any simpler! Directions are clearly written, often including cook's tips for a variation and/or explanation. The cookbook provides in-depth information, written in everyday language, regarding such topics as healthy diets, cholesterol, and stocking a heart-healthy pantry. These recipes prove that eating healthy does NOT mean eating bland and boring food. Thank you AHA for showing us how simple life-changing cooking can be.

My husband's recent heart attack turned dinnertime into a challenge for me. I love to cook, but now it had to be boring old bland stuff, right? Wrong! This cookbook gives you the recipes for one delicious dish after another. It's a staple now in our house, right up there next to the salmon, blueberries, oats and broccoli.

This book contains information that everyone can use. America is experiencing an epidemic of rotubund proportions. This book helps educate people on how to reduce heart disease and diabetes. It is a useful book as a whole. However, the amount of daily protein that is recommended in the average human diet is, in my opion, a little low. If an athlete uses this book they must adhere to a diet that is more specific for highly active bodies. In all, it is a good book. It has been useful in showing me how to lower my sodium and cholesterol levels; something every American should be doing. I feel better already!

The recipes are great but I was disappointed that there are no pictures! Zucchini Bread is fantastic & only 1 g. of fat!!! Lots of recipes that are tasty but low in fat!

Low-Fat, Low Cholesterol was more help to me than the web sites I read online. It separates cholesterol issues from sodium and sugar issues. I especially appreciate the explanation of LDL and HDL fats. I previously had not understood that saturated fats were as bad ad cholesterol. I enjoy studying the book and using the recipes.
