To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was skeptical because so many "healthy" cookbooks have so many unusual ingredients making it hard to implement in daily living. I have loved every recipe and just modify if a step or ingredient are too strange. Better yet, I serve the same meals to my guests and they love them! No more completely fattening meals just to satisfy company. We are eating well and better yet, losing weight! Using this cookbook and the free Lose It app to track my food, I have dropped 24 pounds since July and my husband has lost almost 40 pounds. We are not sacrificing taste at all. Just the opposite, we are having the most delicious meals we have ever had!
There are certain things I like in a cookbook, and this cookbook has them. First of all, the foods are normal, and easy to make. There are pictures to see what the finished dish looks like. Lots of recipes to appeal to everyone in the whole family, and nobody is going to feel like they are eating diet food. There is a panel with each recipe with the caloric count and all the other necessary numbers. I really recommend this book.
I bought this book after the holidays, along with several others, because my husband and I were looking for a way to lose weight and eat healthier without feeling deprived. As soon as I opened this book I loved it. The recipes are delicious and easy to prepare and very healthy. My husband and I are slowly losing weight and we're enjoying it. We try a new recipe nearly every night and haven't found a bad one yet. The book lives up to it's name, "Eat Well Lose Weight."
When a patient of mine brought this in for my review, I hunted down my own copy that night! I love that it has calories, protein and more listed for each recipe, and the recipes are simple to prepare. I teach weight loss and this has been a great tool to help people get off of fast food and prepared meals from the store!
In Food Science lab, we used Better Homes and Gardens as our lab book because the recipes ALWAYS turned out as expected, this new edition is no different; it's awesome!
