Book Description

26 Jan 2006 You Are What You Eat

Using the nutritional principles advocated in the TV show, You Are What You Eat: The Meal Planner That Will Change Your Life is the third book in the hugely successful You Are What You Eat series.

The new TV series of You Are What You Eat will look at not just what we eat, but how we eat. The social and psychological reasons for unhealthy eating will be examined and the programme will highlight individual eating patterns.

You Are What You Eat: The Meal Planner will tie-in directly to this new element of the series by providing precise, constructive and easy-tofollow nutritional plans that will help people avoid making poor food choices. Containing a variety of delicious recipes, this book will give you a general plan for eating throughout the year,with the emphasis on a sustained, healthy diet. Balancing staple foods that are delicious whatever the time of year with the best foods that are 'in season' and taking into account the fact that people's tastes change as the seasons do, e.g we all tend to eat less in summer and comfort eat in winter, You Are What You Eat: The Meal Planner will help you make good food choices all year round and for the rest of your life. The result will be increased energy levels, improved mood, better skin, nails and hair and gradual, healthy weight loss for those aiming to reach their normal body weight.

4.0 out of 5 stars A True Education In Eating Healthily 31 Jan 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Outstanding Book. The perfect tool for the average person who's never ventured into a health foof store and thinks that nuts are simply for eating at parties when all the good food has gone. Undoubtedly an education, written for the average Joe who is committed to changing a life-time of bad eating practices. It does take perserverence and a willingness to learn and cook differently using this book. Its not for the quick flick through approach to learning about new healthier foods and cooking. But once you master the new ingredients and start to cook, the taste, variety and health benefits are undeniable. Every kitchen should have this book in it. Excellent

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple progression to a healthier eating plan 1 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have read many books on healthy eating plans and the one thing that stops me from succeeding is that I try to change too quickly doing too many new things. This book is arranged in a month by month guide starting in January with a look at how to improve after the Christmas excesses. It tackles a different subject each month, going through the year so that if you take on the concept each month, by the end of the year you will be surprised at how your diet has changed, almost without you knowing.
It is not the definitive guide but a good gentle start to a better way of eating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life isn't all mitso soup and quinoa 3 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Not being particularly attracted to slippery elm and dandelion tea as advocated by Gillian McKeith I found this book used foods that I and my family are more likely to eat on a sustained basis. Gillian's hard and fast rules are great for jolting the system when one is feeling motivated but there are some things that I will never get a taste for. Using this book in conjunction with the other You Are What You Eat publications provides an extensive range of recipes using food items that are, in the main, available in the local Spar. The energy bars are really delicious and easy and straightforward to make. There are also lots of good ideas for family meals together with puddings and treats when you just need something a little bit sinful.

5.0 out of 5 stars That's the point... 22 April 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just want to defend this book. The VERY reason I bought this was because it had nothing to do with Gillian McKeith. It has a much more relaxed, realistic and achievable guide to eating healthiliy. I LOVE the recipes in there. They are set out Month by Month which can make finding them a little difficult but you soon get used to it. It's SOOO interesting to read. If you enjoy eating healthily try this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the real deal ? Actually it's better! 29 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback
We bought Gillian McKeith's first book, full of good intentions, but quite honestly it wasn't the sort of food I could serve up to my husband - the ingredients were a bit too weird and hard to find and it seemed a step too far if you know what I mean.
However, someone showed me this one and it was entirely different, so much so that I bought it. I've only just realised the reason - it isn't by Gillian McKeith!
Well, so what! It's full of healthy recipes of the far less extreme variety and I have used it constantly.
I have so many cook books on my shelf, each containing only one or two recipes I actually cook. Not so this one - there are loads of inspiring recipes to choose from.
If you can't quite stomach the real Gillian McKeith diet, try this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 26 Oct 2006
By Lisa
Format:Paperback
This book was extremely disappointing. As mentioned in another review, this is not written by Gillian McKeith, although it is supposed to be associated with the Channel 4 show. There are some good recipes in here if you are on a diet, and it is nicely laid out in seaons to make the best of 'in season' fresh produce in the recipes, however I would certainly not recomend this if you are trying to follow Gillian's approach. If you have done your first few weeks and are looking for something extra, then I would recommend the You Are What You Eat Cookbook which has loads of great recipes and ideas on how to put a meal together

If you are looking to buy this book, I'm thinking that you have probably heard Gillian's thoughts on certain types of food, however this book says things like 'In your sandwiches at lunchtime, try & use wholemeal bread, but if you can't.....' As white bread is one of Gillian's top 10 bad foods, it seems odd that this book seems to allow it. Lots of recipes contain ingredients that are not in keeping with the programme, so it was not what I was looking for, but it is nicely laid out and pictures are good. I would say don't buy if you are looking for extra You Are What You Eat recipes, but buy if you are following another plan where this might fit better
