The Hairy Bikers, self-proclaimed food lovers, decided it was time to cut back on some of the calories and adopt a healthier lifestyle, without sacrificing flavour. This book is packed with delicious recipes that are for "real people, not skinny minnies" - including hearty family meals and baked treats (EASY FOOD)
Bikers ought to be hirsute, cider-loving and tubby. But in their latest book of recipes Si King and Dave Myers have shed the pounds and immediately reaped the benefit in sales. The moral being that you don't have to lose flavour along with the hefty calorie content (BELFAST TELEGRAPH)
The last people you thought you'd see hosting their own dieting show, but the Hairy Bikers did it in style and proved that losing weight doesn't have to involve lettuce leaves and rabbit food! One of our faves from the slimmed-down duo is the scrummy Spanish-style bake (GOOD TO KNOW RECIPES)

The recipes are very simple to follow and have all tasted really good.
I have lost 1 Stone so far and my wife has lost 8 pounds so we are both very happy with this.
Not just down to the recipes in the book as you have to exercise as well, I go mountain biking and my wife goes to a gym.
So for now we are going to continue to use the recipes in the book - give it a try as it does help to loose weight.
***Update 1 after nine weeks ***
Have now lost 2 Stone and the wife 1 Stone - still using the book for most meals.
***Update 2 after seventeen weeks ***
Have now lost over 3 Stone and the wife 1 Stone 4 pounds.
I wasn't disappointed either. The hairy bikers have done a good book here with some excellent recipes and pictures that make you want to try the recipes. Food chapters are: Breakfast & Brunch, One-Pan Dishes, Grills & Roasts, Pies, Stews, Vegetables & Salads, Fakeaways, Pasta & Rice, Puddings & Cakes and Lunch Boxes & Snacks.
Many of the dishes have a comforting feel, some are spicy, some light and delicious like: Salmon with chilli Ginger Sauce, Peppered Steak with Mushrooms, Lemon and Thyme Roast Chicken, Cajun Spiced Chicken with Potato Wedges and Chive Dip, Chicken and Ham Tangle Pie, Lean Lamb Hotpot, Lamb Tagine, Chilli Salad Bowl, Chilli Con Carne and a number of really great sounding curries. This is just a taster of the recipes, I fancy trying a lot more. My favourites of the sweet recipes are Summer Fruit Meringues and Chewy Cranberry and Apricot Bites.
I've recently taken a lot more interest in cooking to lose a bit of weight, for much the same reasons as the bikers - to give my health a boost - so this book has come at just the right time for me. Starting off tonight with one I already have the ingredients for, their Chicken and Mushroom Risotto.
There are six of us at home, me, hubby, 2 x 20 year olds, 1 x 19 year old and 1 x 16 year old. All with large appetites, but only me needing to lose weight.
I prepared the ingredients for the casserole, put it all in the slow cooker, switched it on and went to work. Late afternoon, I received a text message from my 20 year old son explaining that he would be out until after 7pm, but could I please, please, please keep him some of the casserole as it smelled so good!
When I got home, I had to practically fight my way through the rest of the family - it was like a scene from Oliver Twist with them standing there with bowls in hand. Not one complaint was received apart from there being none left!
I am a large eater and have found the portions to be more than adequate and certainly far more substantial than any ready meals I have purchased.
The Skinny Beef Lasagne also received rave reviews.
We are all looking forward to trying more of the delicious looking recipes.
The various sections are well laid out, calories are detailed for the recipes per portion and clear ingredient lists make these straight forward and easy to prepare. I have not come across any ingredients that I could not find in my local supermarket and certainly none that were so fancy I hadn't heard of them.
As I do not possess any of the previous Hairy Biker cookbooks, I cannot comment on previous reviews that the recipes are simply a reworking of the originals.
As far as I am concerned, these tasty meals will be very useful in encouraging me to keep on my weight loss / healthy eating plan.
I have countless cook books confined to the cupboard because they are too complex and I give up the will to live after just reading them. All the recipes offered that I have made are bursting with flavor just as they promise, with no complaints from any of the family, making for a pleasant change. It is true the book is simple and to the point - which as a busy working Mum suits me down to the ground. I would highly recommend this book based on the fact that I have actually used it and am still using it. Can't say fairer than that......................
