After watching the channel four programme which I thought was great, I decided to purchase the cook yourself thin books. I purchased this book and the original delicious way to drop a dress size, I have noticed that not all the recipes on the TV series are in the cookbooks, which is disappointing.

This cookbook follows the format of the original cook yourself thin cookbook, but it has weekly menu plans for 1500 & 1800 calories/day - I think this is a great addition and perfect for those who like to plan ahead. It also provides success stories which is a good idea for motivating readers to stick to the cook yourself thin ethos.

This book is much like the first cookbook, good for providing alternative and healthy swaps for fat foods and recipes. I would recommend the range of cookbooks for those that are conscious of their eating habits and want healthy alternatives in their diets, it is not only for those that want to lose some weight.

I particularly like the crunchy granola breakfast recipe - perfect to bring to work, healthy and tasty! The book has lots of different curry recipes in it - which I love, as Im a homemade curry fan! The lunches and soups section is similar to the original one but this includes wraps and yummy muffin recipes for lunch! Although the format is the same as the original it does vary as it goes under the sections of fish, chicken etc. as opposed to the main meals section in the previous book. It also includes a good vegetarian section. Dessert section is slightly better than previous book - cant wait to try the light sponge cake. Drinks section is good and I love the dips and dressing recipes at the end of the book.

I read the first Cook Yourself Thin from cover to cover and loved the recipes. They were easy to do and so tasty. I was really excited to see a new addition to this cookbook range. It arrived and I was a bit disappointed, not quite the same exciting recipes. It is still a good collection of easy to read and easy to cook recipes that are all very healthy. If you are new to the range you will enjoy the recipes and the writing style is great. More pictures would be good!

This is the perfect recipe book, its the first time that I lose weight without being hungry or starved. Its also amazing to lose weight by being allowed to eat muffins, chocolate cake, pancakes, its really really brilliant and I would recommend this to everyone who has been trying on a million diets without any results or at least not long lasting ones and everyone who always feels bored of their food and/or hungry when not starved when dieting....

This book is not a diet, it really doesnt feel like one because you can still have cake and you will never feel hungry!!!!

Only problem with this book is the preparation time of the recipes, it takes me double sometimes triple the time that is shown per recipe but apart from that, its perfect, healthy and tasty food...

This book + a Kinect ( for the fun exercise from the comfort of your home, without having to go to the boring gym ) and weight loss is guaranteed ;)

I bought this book after watching Cook Yourself Thin on Channel 4 recently. Being a vegetarian, I always find it hard to buy cook books and diet books that I can adapt to my needs. I have read this book cover to cover, and after studying the recipes I feel really confident that I can adapt the meat recipes to include Quorn (I'm especially looking forward to the Louisiana-style zesty burgers). The vegetarian section is good, although next time I would love to see some Quorn based recipes included in the book. There are some great marinades, gorgeous looking desserts, wonderful sounding drinks and brilliant lunchbox ideas. I'm really looking forward to trying the recipes. I am an experienced cook, and these recipes I feel could be made by the most ameteur of cooks.

My copy does have a printing error though, with some of the desserts section popping up in the middle of the lunchbox recipes.

I am not an avid reviewer, but I felt I really ought to given the success from my first use of this book. I bought it last week and cooked the harissa chicken with couscous for supper last night. First of all it is amazing to look at the size of chicken breasts - I challenge anyone to find one that only weighs 100g! So I used only one between the two of us and chopped it up. It really did only take the 25 mins to prepare and cook that it suggested in the book and it tasted fantastic - definitely not like "diet food". But best of all my boyfriend did not complain that there was too little food, which is my biggest challenge when trying to eat more healthily! So a big thumbs up from me. Will have to move on and try some of the other recipes now.

the food selection is ok, I never really understand why they put salads in cook books. Apart from that the book is good I like how they give you a selection of snacks it makes me weigh certain food like pringles to be less then 100cals sounds silly but still lets me eat what I love even if it's a small amount.
