5.0 out of 5 stars Does not feel like a diet book, 10 Aug 2007
This review is from: Cook Yourself Thin: The Delicious Way to Drop a dress Size (Paperback)
My girlfriend introduced me to this book one evening a couple of weeks ago - 'Cook Yourself Thin' I said to myself, pah (breathing in deeply and standing tall).

Being a typical man It wasn't until a couple of weeks later that i'd noticed a distict difference in out evening meals. On questioning, my girlfriend informed me that we'd been dining on some of the many wonderful recipes from this book.

I was intrigued. I started to see more press on the show and found their response rather geared towards the diet aspect. I must say that in defence of this book the girls seem to be dedicated food experts and not dietitians. The press also seemed to want to point out how the books concept was obvious (Source from Medical news today) A UK government report estimates that by the year 2010 12 million adults plus 1 million kids in England will be obese if current trends continue... Er, so not that obvious!?

From a male perspective the show is rather feminine, but the book is a colourful (if a little girlie) and sensible option for anyone wanted to enjoy food and perhaps shift a couple of pounds. I'd recommend it as does my girlfriend who has lost a couple of pounds - as I understand it 6-8lb is a difference in dress size.

Enjoy it, it's a good book!
