Fistly the book is twice the size of a regular cookbook. At first i thought that the glossy cover and the size meant id got alot for my money...wrong. The book is poorly printed, it almost looks like the color will run because the paper is of such poor quality and the book totals only 16 pictures. Each recipie takes one page (pages are about 7/8ths of A4) and has some purple clipart style picture. The text is huge and the recipies that take two pages leave a lot of space. The huge size of the book is completly unnececary.
Secondly, and most dissapointingly, 90% of the recipies call for packaged/processed goods, which are not available in the UK. I did find some substitutes but they made the recipies alot higher in calories. The book is supposed to promote healthy weight loss meals but the amount of packaged/tinned goods called for is rediculous. Its hardly cooking at all and not healthy.
They also stretched the recipies to their limits with over 10 varieties of omlette (using no real eggs, instead egg white substitute...not available in the uk).
I even wrote to the publisher with my concerns and they replied very rudely, and jokingly that i should ship the book back to them and that the book was amazing.
I had to laugh at the 'She's not a nutritionist, she's just hungry' slogan on the back because its the escence of truth...
In summary...Buy this book if you love american packaged/processed/fake goods and want to learn to make 10 different omlettes that don't even contain egg, otherwise invest in a book that was written by a real nutritionist.
So many healthy food options! Healthier versions of everyday foods & snacks.
Full nutritional info on ALL meals
I would prefer pictures of all the foods, but then again, im a very visual person when it comes to food!
This is a great book if your wanting to watch your weight or just be healthier.
My only issue is that im not in USA, theres so many awesome foods in the recipes that I just Cant get in my country!
So frustrating! But ive also learnt about lots of new products & foods!
I am now a Hungry Girl Follower!
I have signed up to her emails & follow her on twitter/facebook :)
