Having been an avid follower of the Ch4 series and having bought the 1st book, I was looking forward to the release of the cook book. Like most people, I though the food and recipes sounded interesting if not somewhat "New Age", and couldn't wait to find out what had made such a difference to so many peoples lives and figures!!
This book, although easy to read, well presented and informative, fails to hit the spot, however. Out of umpteen recipes, and numerous hours creating, we only found one (the baked bananas!) to have any taste or appeal.
You may say (a la Ms McKeith) we have abused our taste buds, but not so , I would argue. We were converted from the processed muck during the start of the first series, and have been making our own healthy eating recipes, so would consider ourselves to be reasonably healthy. The recipes in this book are bland, tasteless, colourless (Mushroom Stroganoff especially!).I could go on...By all means buy it for interests sake, to see what actually goes into the recipes on the show, but I have to say I do wonder whether the "mmmmmmms- delicious" were all for the cameras!!!

I bought this book as soon as it was published as I'm the family cook, and I was looking for ideas for healthy eating. My wife and I were hesitant about this book as we thought we would end up with a whole load of recipes that compromised on taste and flavour; the title made us think we would end up with something like that. However, the book tries to make you approach eating and cooking from a whole new perspective. Gillian McKeith has taken a really scientific approach to food and eating, but has made it sensible and has not compromised on taste sensations.
You have to be prepared to make real lifestyle changes to reap the benefits of this book. You have to shop differently and purchase alternatives to the usual groceries (though there is nothing that you won't find in any large supermarket). I particularly enjoy this book as it lets me loose in Sainsburys, really exploring all the aisles that I had previously just breezed past. And using McKeith's principles, we have transformed our daily menu to include colour, health and vitality, and it's given us so much energy too. I have noticed that our dietary changes have brought improvements to my skin, and my wife's hair and nails look fabulous. Even our 21 month old son, who is a difficult eater, loves the food I have been preparing from this book (he especially likes the smoothies).
The book isn't just about recipes. It is about changing the way you cook in general, and also the way you use food. You can use the ideas and principles in this book and apply it to all your other recipes. No longer trying to lose weight, this book has given us the ability to have a really healthy lifestyle and you feel absolutely wonderful with it.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoy the programme , "You are What You Eat" and was keen to try out some of the recipes which were missing in the first book. This one is much more practical and complements the nutritional background given in Gillian's previous manual. Full of detailed recipes for juices, smoothies, lunch boxes , dinners and snacks. I would prefer if there were more pictures in it as I like to see what the end product should look like, especially when cooking with pulses and things I havent used before. But dont worry, most of the dishes are made with ingredients you can get at the supermarkets, loads of fish, chicken and veggie dishes. There's plenty of easy recipes to do right away and I plan to try one of the more unusual ones ( with the aduki and mung beans)each week to build my repertoire. I have only given this book 4 as I already do a lot of cooking. If you are a stranger to the hob and chopping board you will probably find this a mammoth task.

Format: Paperback
I have had this book about two weeks and have found it easy to read, informative and good fun. It is clearer and less confusing than her last book, You are What You Eat. When I read it , I kept wanting to shout "but where are the recipes for aduki bean stew!" Now we have the information. I am not following the plan completely, but I am finding it easy to make fresh fruit and veg juices and bring them into my diet. Put it this way, if it has got me and my 3-year old son eating kiwi/pear/grape juices then it is no bad thing. I have been buying ingredients for some of the bean or tofu recipes and it is a book that lives in the kitchen, which is unusual. It shows how you want to dip into it for ideas and reference nearly every day. It is a great book to kick start a healthier diet and to change fundamental eating habits. I throughtly recommed it.

The mrs bought this book, but as I do most of the cooking I had to read it.
I'm all for healthy eating but the recipes in this book are completely devoid of all flavour.
I was particularly unimpressed with the bean chili recipe which doesn't contain any chili.
Healthy eating isn't rocket science, you don't need this book

I saw this book while at my sister's house, she had made a couple of recipes out of it for us and I was impressed enough to go out and buy it for myself.
I'm not an accomplished cook, but these recipes are straightforward, it would be hard to go wrong.
The nutritional value is unquestionable, but personally I ignore the food combining advice. These are really healthful recipes that actually work and are delicious.
There are a few ingredients that I, at least, find hard to get, depends on where you live; but there are plenty of other recipes.
I am really delighted with this book, I love the recipes. I find Dr.McKeith a little hard to take on tv, but this is an excellent book that would set anyone one the road to good health. I felt really inspired by it, and very few recipe books do that.
