    My wife and I have made about a dozen of these recipes and have never been disappointed — they have been consistently delicious. We also use “Eating Well” magazine and a few other sources of tasty low-cal recipe, in addition to standard cookbooks.

    Each recipe tells you the calories (important) and grams of fat (not as important) per serving. As with any cookbook, there are always minor modifications to make to suite your taste (for example, the lemon-mustard chicken with angel hair pasta recipe doesn’t create enough sauce for our taste, so we increase those ingredients).

    These are not “15-minute recipes,” nor do they take hours. You have to want to cook; it’s not uncommon for a dinner entree to have a dozen ingredients. But the rewards are worth it.

    This book is perfect for me. I want to eat a 1200 calorie a day menu. But I was spending so much time compiling recipes from the various books that I have that I gave up. This book allows you to choose a breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. No strict regimen. No matter which meals you choose, you don’t exceed 1200 calories. It’s perfect. The recipes are more “gourmet” which is what I like to prepare. All the recipes are based on 4 people but its not that difficult to scale down to one or two, it just takes a smidgen of effort. Best recipe book I have found to date.

    I am home all day and have lots and lots of experience in cooking all kinds of foods ranging from easy to very difficult. While the recipes in this are not super difficult, this is not a cookbook for most of us.

    Personally, I got this book to make dieting EASIER. I wanted a list of things I can throw together for 3 meals a day, and end up with about 1200 calories no matter which I picked from each meal choice. This book, doesn’t do that.

    For example, for breakfasts: individual fruit platters with hot popovers (huh?) or Fresh Banana-Oat Bread and vanilla yogurt with sliced fresh peaches. Geez! That is a lot of work for BREAKFAST!

    Lunches: Curried Tuna and Pecans in Pita Halves with Ambrosia Fruits. Sure Or Wild Rice-Sausage Chowder with fresh tomato

    I mean, I have all day, and I’m not making this for lunch. Dinner, maybe.

    Dinner: Snapper on a bed of spinach-cheese sauce, basil baked tomatoes and gingered rice. I’m exhausted just thinking about it.

    If you want NEW and FRESH recipe ideas, this really is a great book, so I gave it three stars. But for most regular joes, this is not a great book,recipes are too complicated and if it’s too much effort to just eat every day, folks will drop their diet and eat pasta and chips instead.
