4.0 out of 5 stars Not ground breaking, just great food, 15 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight (Paperback)
I watched the show and made a fair few of the freely available recipes - this coincided with a decision I had already made to shed a few pounds. By not just following the recipes but applying the cooking advice to my own recipes I've been able to eat well, not go hungry but still keep my daily calorie count around the 1500-1600 mark as a maximum, usually its closer to 1400.

I'm not as religious with it as the HBs so my weight loss is a gradual affair but I don't feel like I am on a diet and have still managed 14lbs in about 6 weeks (I also cycle regularly), I am just not over eating and making sure the things I do eat are cannily made. And the most important thing is that the food is delicious and filling.

All of these recipes are easily doable,all very straight forward with easily obtained ingrediants - nothing seems particularly daunting - this is food, not fine dining which is EXACTLY what you need for every day cooking.

I have given 4 stars rather than 5 because whilst most recipes are sort of 'stand alone', often there can be instances of (x calories - not including rice). This is fine but it should have an additional note which says how many extra calories the accompaniment would be. Its a minor niggle I know and doesn't affect me much but for people new to cooking/calorie counting you need to make life as easy as possible.

I've seen a very few negative reviews for this book, most don't relate to the actual product, the remainder frothing about how calorie counting does/doesn't work.

This is pretty good news, when you find a product where the negative reviews have no substance you can be pretty confident in the purchase.
