When our favourite Hairy chefs released their first diet book last August, it was so successful that they're back this year with more fantastic recipes for food lovers wanting to lose weight! Cooking without calories but not compromising on taste is their motto, and they certainly deliver in this new book, full of delicious dishes and techniques to learn. (GOOD TO KNOW RECIPES)
The original Hairy Dieters was a massive - if slightly unexpected - success... This new volume picks up where the first book finishes and is crammed with delicious, nutritious recipes, well photographed in colour. It also contains some simple words of wisdom about how to eat to lose weight and then keep the weight off (EASTERN DAILY PRESS)
brilliant book (THE SUN)
If you're a fan of Strictly, you'll see the impressive results of Hairy Biker Dave Myers's weight loss regime. The follow-up to the popular first book, The Hairy Dieters, is The Hairy Dieters Eat for Life. The recipes are clever, you don't even realise that they're low-calorie (although the calorific value
of a portion is listed on each recipe) and it means you can carry on enjoying your food while hopefully losing the pounds.
Having dropped pounds and risen to the top of the bestsellers list with their first diet cookbook, the duo deliver a second collection of low-fat recipes. There are lots of healthy makeovers, including Cornish pasties, pot pies and fishcakes. (Sally Hughes BBC GOOD FOOD)

The end result of cooking these recipes has been well received within my family. They are full of flavour every single time. It is not at all evident that this is "diet" food and I would be happy to serve the dishes at dinner parties, for example.
I was looking to lose approximately 1 stone, and in 3 weeks have already lost 6lbs. I feel full of energy and enthusiasm because I know we won't get bored of eating the meals from the Hairy Dieters cookbook.
The books themselves contain beautiful images of the food, and they are punctuated with humour and useful common sense tips.
I can't recommend this book enough.
To date, everything I've made has been very tasty.
As for the book itself, I found the organisation less than wonderful. Whatever happened to sections for soups, mains, desserts etc? "Meals with Mates" and "Fab Fakeaways" may sound TV cool, but they don't help when you're looking for the soup recipe that was tucked in among completely different dishes. And the back index is often no help. They have entries for some of the ingredients, but not all, so if you want to find the fish recipes, you either have to remember the exact name, or page through until you run across it. No Fish category in a cookbook index, and yet "Mayonnaise" and "Onions" get categories to themselves? What is the "logic" behind this? Probably the same "logic" that deemed that categories should be printed in lower case, making them even harder to search through.
Poor editorial planning makes this book harder to use than it needs to be. Too much gloss, too little practicality for 5 stars.
What Dave and Si do is find ways to make the every day recipes that we all love healthier and lower in calories.
The book covers all sorts of meals such as breakfasts, salads, "fakeaways", one pots and casseroles and desserts.
I've never bought a cook book where there were so many things that I a) wanted to make and b) actually looked simple enough to make on a regular basis.
This book has definitely assisted me in my quest for healthier eating and since I have started using this as a guide for my meals my weight loss has certainly stepped up which I do not believe is a coincidence.
Congratulations to both Si and Dave for producing " Eat for Life"
