Who says that losing weight or watching your weight has to be boring or punitive? Not in this cookbook! This cookbook is not affiliated with Weight Watchers, but does use these words in the title. The paperback cookbook has 95 pages packed with recipes for those who are weight conscious, dieting or wanting to prevent putting on those unwanted pounds.
There are lots of yummy color photos of mouth watering foods as well as black and white illustrations of “how to’s”. The cookbook is organized into sections for different kinds of foods but interspersed in the book are also 12 sample daily menus using the recipes in this book. Each sample menu has a complete day’s meal plan with options of a 1200, 1800 and 2600 calorie per day allowance, so both men and women can lose or maintain their weight.
There is also a Barbecue Chart for use in grilling meats of all types with portion sizes, calorie counts, companion sauces and cooking times. There is a recipe for 1 Minute French Dressing and a chart with ways to use this French Dressing as a base for all kinds of sauces and dressing variations. The chart also indicates which foods work best with these different variations.
Whether you are wanting to lose weight, maintain your current weight or just want to eat healthfully, this book will provide you with recipes to reach your goal.
