Overview

The Fat Chance Cookbook: More Than 100 Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes to Help You Lose the Sugar and the Weight by Robert H. Lustig

The long-awaited cookbook companion to the instant New York Times bestseller Fat Chance shows you how to beat the odds—deliciously
 
Dr. Robert Lustig’s message that a calorie is not a calorie revolutionized our understanding of weight loss and nutrition. But in order to avoid the hidden sugars that threaten our health and waistlines, Dr. Lustig warns that we must transform the way we shop, cook, and eat. Teaming up with Cindy Gershen—a chef who’s lost more than one-hundred pounds on his plan—Dr. Lustig shows readers how to:

   • Stock a pantry
   • Prepare more than 100 fast and delicious recipes
   • Feed a family—kids included—healthy foods they’ll love
   • Make entertaining easy and nutritious

More timely than ever now that newest edition of The Dietary Guidelines for Americans has for the first time placed hard limits on the amount of sugar we should consume, The Fat Chance Cookbook shows you how to lose weight, find your way back to health, and still enjoy delectable, memorable meals.

Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This book is the best cookbook for eating healthy that I have ever read. The first 50-60 pages of the book goes into a very good overview as to why sugar and processed foods are so bad for you and how these foods affect your body and leads to overweight and obese people. The recipes are great, most are easy to make and I've lost a lot of weight in the 3 weeks that my wife and I have been eating healthy. The author has another book, Fat Chance, that goes into much more detailed reasons for doing away with sugar and processed foods in your diets and how those foods affect your body, but after reading it, I felt the cookbook's first 50-60 pages of information was a great overview for Fat Chance and if you feel the need for more information after purchasing and reading the cookbook, then buy that book also. I also highly recommend purchasing a regular book version of this book in lieu of purchasing on a reader, which I did. It will make going back to the various recipes easier, or if purchasing via a reader, make note of the pages of recipes that interest you, so you can go back to them at a later time.
