Comments:

I am the person that hates dieting and has never been able to stick to one more than 2 days! Just the thought of it makes me want to eat more. My husband and I are in our late 40’s and have both gained an extra 10+ pounds in the last ten years. I am passionate about cooking and not afraid to try most things. We eat pretty well already with veggies and proteins (or so I thought). I saw Bob talking about his book on tv and for some reason felt the need to order it. I read through the recipes and thought it looked like something I could do. We started on Monday and it is now Friday afternoon. My husband is down 6 pounds and I am down between 4-5! (I exercised hard 4x this week for an hour with cardio and weights) We both feel great! This book works because you are eating large, healthy portions for breakfast and lunch and not getting hungry in between. You need to eat all that is in the recipes. Also, the “no carbs” after lunch rule is a really big help. I’m convinced this really helps to keep the weight off. We have both been drinking more water as well and eating an apple and berries each day as Bob recommended. You will be surprised how many more vegetables and proteins you are eating when you follow this. This is how we all need to eat in order to live a longer, healthier life. We said we’d try it for 5 days but neither of us are feeling cheated or craving snacks so we are just going to continue. Note, I was a huge carb addict and never thought I could stop craving but I have. We’ve tried a lot of recipes. Our favorite breakfasts are the avocado toast (you get to eat 4 hard-boiled egg whites) and the eggs florentine. Our lunch favorite is the pesto quesadilla. Instead of the Ezekiel tortilla I used a large whole grain wrap with 1/2 the calories of the tortilla and equal in protein and fiber and much more flavorful. I used about a tablespoon of my own fresh pesto and left off the shredded mozzarella because you can’t taste it anyway. Also, used about a teaspoon of fresh grated reggiano parm on top. Dinners have been great for the most part…loved the salmon with creamy dill sauce, mighty meatloaf, and steak and warm spinach salad. Not crazy about the zucchini with avocado cream. Tonight is the spaghetti squash pad thai but with grilled shrimp instead of chicken. Now that we understand the balance of proteins, fats, and carbs for each meal, we are creating some of our own meals as well. I made a great arugula and spinach salad with roast turkey, tomatoes, red peppers, red onion, and a scallion fat-free greek yogurt dressing for lunch. Lunch today was 2 slices whole wheat toast with roast chicken, a thin slice of deli ham, baby spinach, tomatoes and 1/4 avocado spread on one piece of toast. Snacks have been an apple with a tablespoon of almond butter or yogurt with frozen mixed berries. I highly recommend this for people looking to change their bad eating habits and getting healthy.
___________________________________________
I have followed most of these “skinny rules” for years, and try to eat this way and exercise regularly. Because of my efforts I have successfully gotten to my pre-pregnancy weight – and kept off the weight as I have entered my 40s. However, as a working mom with a busy family, its hard to find quick delicious recipes that are also healthy. I own a plethora of weight loss cookbooks and have cooked from all of them. After one week of cooking from this cookbook I have to tell you it’s the best of the bunch. Why? 1) Most importantly – the flavors. The recipes are so flavorful you don’t feel like you are missing anything. Bob substitutes avocado for oils, greek yogurt for cream, agave for sugar, and vegetables for pasta. The recipes explode with flavor, and you are satisfied when your meal is over! 2) There are many EASY recipes with few ingredients that you can repeat over and over. This is my BIGGEST issue with other weight loss cookbooks. Some of them consist of recipes with WAY too many ingredients and too many steps to be practical. Other cookbooks contain recipes with minimal ingredients but also lack flavor. This book combines easy recipes with amazing flavor!!!!! Of course some of Bob’s meals take longer than others, but if you prep in advance – chop your vegetables, poach up a bunch of chicken, create sauces/dressings in advance it makes the prep easier. Reviewers who say that these recipes are too difficult are making excuses. My favorite recipes so far are chicken romana (I substituted shimp), zucchini noodles with avocado cream sauce, banh mi chicken salad (I could eat this daily). 3) Easy to find ingredients – the only unusual items I needed for this week were oat flour, liquid aminos and curry paste, all of which were readily available in my local grocery store. 4) I like that most of his recipes are designed for one serving. This aspect was considered a negative by some of the reviewers, but I love it because I just need to double the recipe for my husband and I. My children are incredibly active and they are not on a diet (and have more bland palates), so I serve them a variation of what we are having. Example – when I made the chicken romana for my husband and I this week, my children ate grilled chicken, raw red peppers and tomatoes (which I already had chopped for the chicken romana) with steamed broccoli (quick in the microwave) and a slice of whole grain bread. Not terribly difficult!!!!! So in summary, this is a FANTASTIC book. Lots of flavor, easy recipes, great principles. Love you Bob!!!
