If you love Jillian Michaels' style, you will love the 'feel' of this book. It is written conversationally; which I loved, as it conveys Jillian's enthusiasm and drive. The recipes are great and varied, and very do-able for those of us who don't really cook much, whilst being sufficiently challenging and tasty if you are already a keen cook!
If you are thinking of buying the preceding book 'Master your metabolism' but haven't yet, I would say you don't need to if you buy this, as its key messages and explanations are recapped in the first parts of this book; and extremely clearly and accessibly.
Caution on two points: lots of measurements are (understandably) in U.S. measuring cups, so be prepared for much conversion unless you want to purchase some U.S. measuring cups (and be careful - because you can't get them on Amazon... only the UK ones, which are different in capacity). Second point of caution is that most recipes are for 4 people (or sometimes more) and not really reducible to 1 or 2 people.
But, I'd still say go ahead and purchase if you are a 'Biggest Loser'fan. You can freeze anything extra, after all... or invite round your friends or family! :-)

Love this book and the recipes. but some of the recipes have ingredients from the us that i haven't been able to find in the uk. but would be able to most of recipes.

I do love the section where she goes through a lot of whole foods and fruit that are use in her recipes and what they are helpful with with in the diet.

I bought Jillians workout DVDs because I like her style. I wanted to look a little closer at my diet. So I decided to get this book.
I am always a little put off by diet books because I can't live them forever, there plain, boring and how much salad can one person eat anyway!!?? Not to mention diet food feels like DIET food (temporary). This book makes eating healthy exciting and very tasty. It sparks an interest into trying different things that perhaps you have never thought of you would eat.
The information at the beginning of the book is very easy to understand makes you look at your body and it's needs in a whole new way.

My advice! do your body ,diet mind and taste buds a favour and buy this book!

Very detailed information about the different substances which affect your metabolism. The recipes are nicely linked to their benefits. I haven't tried many of the recipes yet but they seems straight forward and I think they will be easy to add to my existing meal rota.

Really nice recipes which are straightforward and popular. I have the tala measure as that has american cup sizes in it to help gauge amounts for her recipes.

I love Jillian Michaels and i love this book although being American there are a few things that are very hard to find over here or not available at all.... such as wholewheat white flour. and the measurements tend to be in cups
There are no photos for any of the recipes ( i know this isn't the end of the world but i do like to see what the end product should look like!) The recipes are pretty straight forward so even as a bit of a non cook type person (me!) you should be alright!!
the only real downside for me is there is no mention of the sugar content - which is one of my main concerns health-wise so i stay clear of the obvious recipes with a lot of sugar or reduce how much i add to it.
but on the whole an excellent book and i'm very happy with it!

Bought this for my wife as a present to support her glutin free, wheat free, dairy free and no added sugar diet with the rumour of the chocolate brownie recipe that can meet this restricted diet. Am pleased to say brownies are amazing and completely satisfy my wife's diet critera. Looking forward to trying some more of the recipes.

I love her and I love this book. It really has revamped my kitchen cupboards and diet. Great recipes, a huge selection and my body is thanking me in shedding those pounds that excercise alone just doesn't shift. Love, Love, Love!!!

Very knowledgeable but is a heavy going read. you will need to read learn and inwardly digest as my teachers would say.
