I read the first Cook Yourself Thin from cover to cover and loved the recipes. They were easy to do and so tasty. I was really excited to see a new addition to this cookbook range. It arrived and I was a bit disappointed, not quite the same exciting recipes. It is still a good collection of easy to read and easy to cook recipes that are all very healthy. If you are new to the range you will enjoy the recipes and the writing style is great. More pictures would be good!

After watching the channel four programme which I thought was great, I decided to purchase the cook yourself thin books. I purchased this book and the original delicious way to drop a dress size, I have noticed that not all the recipes on the TV series are in the cookbooks, which is disappointing.

This cookbook follows the format of the original cook yourself thin cookbook, but it has weekly menu plans for 1500 & 1800 calories/day - I think this is a great addition and perfect for those who like to plan ahead. It also provides success stories which is a good idea for motivating readers to stick to the cook yourself thin ethos.

This book is much like the first cookbook, good for providing alternative and healthy swaps for fat foods and recipes. I would recommend the range of cookbooks for those that are conscious of their eating habits and want healthy alternatives in their diets, it is not only for those that want to lose some weight.

I particularly like the crunchy granola breakfast recipe - perfect to bring to work, healthy and tasty! The book has lots of different curry recipes in it - which I love, as Im a homemade curry fan! The lunches and soups section is similar to the original one but this includes wraps and yummy muffin recipes for lunch! Although the format is the same as the original it does vary as it goes under the sections of fish, chicken etc. as opposed to the main meals section in the previous book. It also includes a good vegetarian section. Dessert section is slightly better than previous book - cant wait to try the light sponge cake. Drinks section is good and I love the dips and dressing recipes at the end of the book.

'Cook yourself thin' follows the highly successful book of the same name. In my opinion, the sequel is better, simply because it contains more recipes that appeal to me.

The book provides success stories and inspiration in the opening chapter. Thereafter, the book ordered in the following way:

* Breakfast
* Lunchboxes
* Soups
* Chicken, chicken, Chicken (the ubiquitous ingredient and dieter's friend)
* Feed me (more substantial food such as lamb hotpot etc)
* Fish
* Vegetarian
* Desserts
* Drinks

The criticism I had of the previous book was that the vegetarian section was a bit sparse and lacklustre. They have improved upon this but I don't think it will appeal to everyone. I'm not a vegetarian, so I think it would be unfair for me to make a further comment but, I will say that the recipes will not appeal to the type of 'vegetarian' who exists solely on cheese, pasta, bread and quorn.

Otherwise, the recipes are great and will appeal to most tastes. They are not complex and rely mainly on store cupboard in gredients and lots of lovely veg. Frankly, all ingredients can be sourced easily in most supermarkets. Some commentators have criticised, both books, for using 'exotic' ingredients: I would suggest that if these ingredients appear exotic to some people, it would probably account for why they have a weight problem (readily available processed foods also contain the most additives and transfats). The point with 'Cook youself thin' is that it shows you that you can cook sensibly and more healthily at home with only a little effort.

I found the main meals sections the most use but that was because that was the area I was struggling with in terms of calorie culling.

I have got the orignal blue book and regularly used a few of the recipes (some with a little tweaking of my own). On the whole this book seems to require less preparation and there are more recipes that appeal to me than in the original book. I have already tried the french onion soup, chicken and mushroom risotto and catalan chicken which were all good, particularly the risotto. Like last time the portions are adult size so you're not hungry again in half an hour. I can't really fault this book and I'm hoping the series is continued soon.

after buying the first cook yourself thin cookbook and shifting half a stone in a couple a weeks i was over the moon when i found this one on amazon. the food is lovely and has really helped me shift the bulge!! im not much of a cook (to say the very least) so luckily there are simple steps and the food turns out brilliantly! my boyfriend loves it too! the chicken tikka is a favourite and the koftas went down a treat. the soups are also lovely for a change at lunchtime. i really haven't stuck to anything before because i love food way to much but by using simple tricks like adding flavour with herbs and swapping for low fat yoghurt or creme fraiche, things im not capable of doing to food without guidance!, i havent been hungry and the weight is dropping. win-win all round!
