I live in Chicago and saw the author on our local Windy City Live TV show (there's a video clip on another review). I was intrigued since I'm overweight because of my love of sugar. I love to cook/bake, so the cookbook idea as appealing. I was a bit hesitant to buy it, because I couldn't see a Table of Contents or what recipes were included, which is unusual in my Amazon buying experience. (I see that those are now available on the site). But because of the author's passion and my search for a way to cut down on my sugar intake, I ordered the cookbook and some mberry tablets.
I got the cookbook and as some other reviewers have noted, I was very disappointed to see that in a lot of the recipes, the calorie count is reduced by only 24-28 calories per serving. And the recipes use a LOT of cream, butter, eggs, agave sweetener and white flour. So don't buy this book thinking it's a diet cookbook. It's really not. I also find it interesting that he gives how many calories are saved by using his recipes and mberries, but he does NOT give the nutritional details on any recipe. That's surprising for a "diet cookbook". My guess is that the calorie and fat counts are still so high, he doesn't want to shock you.
If I had it to do over again, I would not have bought this book. I feel like I was foolish to fall for another "fad" diet idea when my common sense was telling me it was too good to be true. I should have listened to my common sense.
