I love the fact that the ingredients are every-day what you would find in any shop. The cooking time is quick and explained in simple terms and you can get the shopping in just 1 carrier bag. Nearly everything can go in your fridge freezer compartment at the top. I am 57 and struggled with my weight since I was 20. In the past I tried for a few weeks and got fed-up. I started the COOK SMART BOOKS on 10 January 2011 and as at 28 May 2011 I am still going strong. Never once did I loose my way. Even if you are a healthy weight the recipes are so good for you. I want to eat like this for the rest of my life. Puddings/Baking/Soups I embrace food now not run away from it. The best way to get the fat off is 1 to 2 lb per week. Slower is better in the long run. I am no great cook but was surprised at how lovely all the dishes turned out. By the way I don't exercise as I have bad knees but the weight has still fallen off. Was 14 stone, now 11 stone 13. Have just made 3 batches of soups for my freezer = 9 plastic tubs. Check out the plastic containers they are great for freezing Soups.
I have ordered the Baking Book too which is published on 9 June 2011.

The recipes have all the information you would expect from a Weight Watchers book - ProPoints values, calories etc. A lot of the recipes are designed to serve 4 people, but they are easily adjusted to just make one or two servings. They are divided into 'Lunches and Light Bites', 'Weekday Suppers', 'Family Favourites' and 'Something Special', with a variety of pasta, potato, rice, noodle and bread/sandwich recipes so there really is a good selection! All recipes are for savoury meals, and where serving suggestions are given, the author also provides points values for these too. Many recipes have tips and suggestions for variations of ingredients.
I'm not a member of Weight Watchers myself, I just wanted a recipe book with healthy vegetarian options, and I'm very pleased with this book!
I am a vegetarian and like recipes specific to my diet and this book is fabulous. Just the sort of cook book I like - simple to read, large photos of the recipes, obvious points system and easy to navigate recipes and ingredients.
Not every recipe has a photo, it seems to be left page recipe with right page photo and the following left/right page have just recipes followed by recipe/photo, recipe/recipe.
It's a lovely large book and def value for money.
It's got sections for different courses alongside special occasion food.
I was really delighted with the book and would recommend it to all in the weight watchers program - vege or not!

Quite a few excellent veggie recipes with the Weight Watchers points. Even though the Weight Watchers plan and points change over time this book still has some very tasty ideas. Read morePublished 18 days ago by witchygirl

Not really reviewing the contents, just the fact that the book is upside down in the cover- so open the front cover and you get the upside down index. Read morePublished 9 months ago by izzyb
