Product Description


The Hairy Bikers, self-proclaimed food lovers, decided it was time to cut back on some of the calories and adopt a healthier lifestyle, without sacrificing flavour. This book is packed with delicious recipes that are for "real people, not skinny minnies" - including hearty family meals and baked treats (EASY FOOD)

Bikers ought to be hirsute, cider-loving and tubby. But in their latest book of recipes Si King and Dave Myers have shed the pounds and immediately reaped the benefit in sales. The moral being that you don't have to lose flavour along with the hefty calorie content (BELFAST TELEGRAPH)

The last people you thought you'd see hosting their own dieting show, but the Hairy Bikers did it in style and proved that losing weight doesn't have to involve lettuce leaves and rabbit food! One of our faves from the slimmed-down duo is the scrummy Spanish-style bake (GOOD TO KNOW RECIPES)

Healthy food doesn't have to be boring, as The Hairy Bikers - now Hairy Dieters! - prove with these mouthwatering low-fat dishes (WOMAN'S OWN)

Dave and Si have lost nearly six stone between them and they've devised lower-calorie versions of usually calorific favourites... keeping all the flavour in tact. Try it - you'll like it. (REVEAL)

The food's good, the advice sensible (RADIO TIMES)

showcases the many mouthwatering, healthy recipes that have helped them drop the pounds... low-calorie delights as a bechamel-free lasagne that uses leeks instead of excess pasta and tandoori chicken with fat-free yoghurt (DAILY EXPRESS)

low-calorie but equally tasty versions of some of their favourite recipes (DAILY MAIL)

Hearty dishes that won't pile on the pounds (BBC GOOD FOOD)

Si & Dave's recipes are SO much more delicious than the average diet dishes, it's no wonder they lost nearly 6st between them! (WOMAN)

Have been using this book to create almost all our meals for 5 weeks now.

The recipes are very simple to follow and have all tasted really good.

I have lost 1 Stone so far and my wife has lost 8 pounds so we are both very happy with this.

Not just down to the recipes in the book as you have to exercise as well, I go mountain biking and my wife goes to a gym.

So for now we are going to continue to use the recipes in the book - give it a try as it does help to loose weight.

***Update 1 after nine weeks ***

Have now lost 2 Stone and the wife 1 Stone - still using the book for most meals.

***Update 2 after seventeen weeks ***

Have now lost over 3 Stone and the wife 1 Stone 4 pounds.

What do foodie minded (and bellied) folk eat when they are cutting back a bit? I've wondered this often and it was with much anticipation that I opened this one up.

I wasn't disappointed either. The hairy bikers have done a good book here with some excellent recipes and pictures that make you want to try the recipes. Food chapters are: Breakfast & Brunch, One-Pan Dishes, Grills & Roasts, Pies, Stews, Vegetables & Salads, Fakeaways, Pasta & Rice, Puddings & Cakes and Lunch Boxes & Snacks.

Many of the dishes have a comforting feel, some are spicy, some light and delicious like: Salmon with chilli Ginger Sauce, Peppered Steak with Mushrooms, Lemon and Thyme Roast Chicken, Cajun Spiced Chicken with Potato Wedges and Chive Dip, Chicken and Ham Tangle Pie, Lean Lamb Hotpot, Lamb Tagine, Chilli Salad Bowl, Chilli Con Carne and a number of really great sounding curries. This is just a taster of the recipes, I fancy trying a lot more. My favourites of the sweet recipes are Summer Fruit Meringues and Chewy Cranberry and Apricot Bites.

I've recently taken a lot more interest in cooking to lose a bit of weight, for much the same reasons as the bikers - to give my health a boost - so this book has come at just the right time for me. Starting off tonight with one I already have the ingredients for, their Chicken and Mushroom Risotto.

Having watched one of the programmes, my hubby and I decided to look for an accompanying cook book. This is it! The recipes are great and what a variety of ingredients.

There are six of us at home, me, hubby, 2 x 20 year olds, 1 x 19 year old and 1 x 16 year old. All with large appetites, but only me needing to lose weight.

I prepared the ingredients for the casserole, put it all in the slow cooker, switched it on and went to work. Late afternoon, I received a text message from my 20 year old son explaining that he would be out until after 7pm, but could I please, please, please keep him some of the casserole as it smelled so good!

When I got home, I had to practically fight my way through the rest of the family - it was like a scene from Oliver Twist with them standing there with bowls in hand. Not one complaint was received apart from there being none left!

I am a large eater and have found the portions to be more than adequate and certainly far more substantial than any ready meals I have purchased.

The Skinny Beef Lasagne also received rave reviews.

We are all looking forward to trying more of the delicious looking recipes.

The various sections are well laid out, calories are detailed for the recipes per portion and clear ingredient lists make these straight forward and easy to prepare. I have not come across any ingredients that I could not find in my local supermarket and certainly none that were so fancy I hadn't heard of them.

As I do not possess any of the previous Hairy Biker cookbooks, I cannot comment on previous reviews that the recipes are simply a reworking of the originals.

As far as I am concerned, these tasty meals will be very useful in encouraging me to keep on my weight loss / healthy eating plan.

Like many of the other reviewers, I watched the tv programme before and was salivating at the yummy recipes. I particularly had my eye on the use of leeks instead of pasta in the lasagne, very clever!

So I had big hopes for my cookbook when it arrived and guess what, I loved it. The book is split up into the following categories: breakfast and brunch, one pan dishes, grills and roasts, pies (of course), stews, vegetables and salads, fakeways (takeway meals without the cals), pasta and rice, puddings and cakes and lunchboxes and snacks.

I have already made a shopping list for my recipes I want (after much pondering about which one I would like to cook first) and there are many ingredients that are common in the supermarket. Many of the ingredients overlap, which helps with the sizes you have to purchase in the supermarket and minimal leftovers.
