The fact that i have only had this book a few weeks and already the pages are getting stuck together says it all! The recipes tried so far have been easy to follow and fairly straight forward. The aim (as with the 'Cook Yourself Thin' books seems to be 'stealth' dieting. Great tasting food that is easy to make, a joy to eat, doesn't rely on nasty reduced fat marg and which doesn't make you feel as if you are depriving yourself of anything (which lets face it is the reason that most diets go off the rails!). The holy grail of dieters is not losing the weight so much as keeping it off. This are the sort of recipes that you can see yourself coming back to time and time again once the weight is finally off - not because you feel you should but because you want to. Thanks Harry!
