- Great Recipes
This is a great book. I purchased it for my husband and I am reaping the benefits. The recipes are easy and taste great. My husband has lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks using these recipes along with exercising....more info
- Great book, easy recipes!
This is a great book with lots of easy recipes. So far I've made about 10 things and they've all been very good. The book is great if you are single beacuse most of the recipes are for 1 or 2 servings so it was a little difficult making it for a family of 5, I am definitely gonna buy the "Family" book that they have out....more info
- Well worth the investment!!
A great cookbook anyone trying to eat healthy or lose weight should have in their collection. Not only are there great recipes, but also helpful tips....more info
Wonderful cookbook. Hated the shipping. Took too long. Ordered it on the 21st of Feb and didn't get it until March 4th....more info
- Love the show and love the recipes!
I read some negative reviews about this cookbook, but I still went ahead and made the purchase. I LOVE the show, Biggest Loser, and felt that I would be happy with the cookbook. I am glad that I took the risk. I love the book and use it a lot! The beginning part has a lot of information about the contestants from the first 2 seasons. Since I only have recently begun to watch the show, I found this to be very interesting. I have also used quite a few of the recipes and have NEVER been disappointed. In fact, the banana split recipe is waaaay too good to be good for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, as an added endorsement, my family of big football players have greatly enjoyed the food and the health benefits from healthy eating! This book gets a big thumbs up from me!...more info
- Great Book
This was a very good purchase. Lots of really healthy recipes. I haven't actually cooked any yet, but I'd say this was a good purchase....more info
- Cooking for one
I ordered this book after checking it out from the local library. I liked how many of the recipes are single servings. As someone who is only cooking for one, it is nice to be able to not have to eat left-overs for every meal. I am not sure how "healthy" the recipes are, but they are easy to make, many only have a few ingredients and some spices. ...more info
- Highly Delicious, Low in Everything Else!
Today we had Individual Sausage Rigatoni Bake, which despite the name, easily serves 2 hungry people. Homemade sausage, whole wheat pasta, low fat and calorie and highly delicious!
We've also made Dari's Picante Chicken (also great), Biggest Winner Breakfast Sausage (good) and Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower (good). Can't wait to try some new ones!
This book fits in very well with the Weight Watchers program my husband and I are following. All the nutritional information we need to calculate our points is right there on each recipe page. I just mark the points right in the book so we won't have to do any calculations the next time. In the last 9 weeks we've lost 19 and 18 pounds respectively. Go US!...more info
- The only thing you have to lose is your weight.
Based on the NBC hit show "The Biggest Loser," this colorful cookbook is a plus to anybody's library that is trying to lose weight or even just eat healthy. The promise of the book is that eating healthy can be quick and delicious AND it doesn't have to mean bland, tasteless food- and the book delivers.
Readers will find a short review of the Biggest Loser's way to lose weight- which is sensible- you eat right and exercise. Then comes the heart of the book- over 100 recipes for the various meals like breakfast, snacks, etc. And unlike a lot of cookbooks, each recipe shows you exactly how many calories, fat grams, protein grams, carb grams, fiber grams, sodium, and cholesterol it contains- which is nice for a wide variety of other populations such as those with diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease.
A sensible and practical cookbook, a lot of people will probably get their money's worth. Also recommend Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff if a shoulder problem keeps you from getting all the benefits of lifting weights.
- Great Stuff
I know that some people have given this book a low review because of its lack of original dishes. The truth of the matter is that the book's purpose is to reinvent favorite flavors and dishes...not create new ones. I use the book quite often, and modify the dishes as I see fit which is great because there are times where I get the caloric values even lower while improving the flavor. The results are fantastic. Since mid-December of 2007, I've lost 87lbs!!! I keep my calories around 1200 a day and use the Biggest Loser Workout DVDs daily. I've gone from 420lbs. to 333lbs. No lie.
- This is the best cookbook I've ever purchased.
I am an incredibly picky eater and usually if I get 1 or 2 recipes out of a cookbook that I buy I'm pretty lucky. I'm pretty "plain jane" when it comes to food. The Biggest Loser Cookbook is the perfect book for me because it takes a lot of those basic meals that I love and makes them healthier. I've even learned enough from the book that I can make adaptions and play around with the recipes to create even more great meals for myself and my family.
Some of our favorite recipes from the book are the Open Faced Burritos, the Almost Fast Food Burger, the Picante Chicken, the roast beef sandwich, the breakfast sausages, and the turkey roll-ups. We haven't gotten through them all yet but we're working our way through the book.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this book if you're a picky eater or you're one of those people who doesn't like a lot of extra stuff in their food. These are simple, plain recipes that taste like a million bucks....more info
- Biggest Loser Cookbook is a Hit
Have made several recipes. They are easy to follow, taste good and don't take a lot of prep time. Great for a working individual!...more info
- McDonald's Fries Recipe Alone Worth Price of Book
The McDonald's French Fries are phenomenal. I haven't tried anything else yet but I know that, for me, the fries are worth the cost of the book and then some.
I absolutely hate fries from anywhere else...McDonald's are so crunchy. I've never been able to get fries at home to crisp up like theirs. Devin gives you the secret and they're actually healthy for you!
Devin, thanks a million. You've saved my health. Now I keep some potatoes frozen and ready to go now whenever I get in the mood for something crispy and salty.
I received this cook book promptly and the recipes are fantastic. I love having pictures along with the recipes....more info
- Everything you need to know!
I had high hopes for this book and was not dissappointed! It has great recipes. I like the fact that most are for one serving as opposed to having 6 to 8 servings and then having to divide everything into one portion sizes. It will tell you just how their diet works and how to incorporate for yourself. I have been following it with much success!!...more info
- Nice and Easy
There are some really good recipes in this cookbook. They dont taste like "diet" food and are easy to prepare. Lots of ideas to expand on for cooking healthy....more info
- Try it you will be pleased.
I found this book to be very motivating. Great for beginers or if you work out every day. Recipes are actually something everyday people would eat. I took this book to work and four people have asked me to order them a book....more info
- Love the "Biggest Loser"!!
Received the product in great time, and it was in great shape! Mom loved her Christmas present!...more info
- Good Recipes
I have been working out and using a couple of Biggest Loser DVDs that have been real good, so I figured this book would be a good one to have around the house since I often will cook since i enjoy cooking, even though I am not very good at it.
There is a good selection of easy to prepare recipes and the food is good with some nice variations on basic foods together with some more recipes that a are a bit more advanced, but nothing too difficult and I was able to get them to come out well.
Good advice on what you are eating, so between working out a bit more and eating better I am making strides. Get a loser DVD or two, this book and you will be on your way....more info
I really enjoy these recipes. I hate eating bland healthy food and I really thought these were practical and had flavor....more info
- Biggest Loser Cookbook
This is the 1st Biggest Loser Cookbook. There are some good recipes in this edition in addition to some helpful hints to achieve a healthy lifestyle. However, we do prefer the 2nd Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. Some of the recipes are the same in each Cookbook, but have different names. The 1st Cookbook is a great start, but I suggest either getting both of them or just the Biggest Loser "Family" Cookbook because its more family oriented as far as portions and the recipes are definitely more wallet ($$) friendly....more info
- great book
Actually has some good recipes in the book. Does contain a lot of verbiage about the show....more info
- An Awesome Buy... THE BEST!!!
This is honestly the BEST cookbook that I have ever owned. Most cookbooks I will use one or 2 recipes out of and thats it, but this one.. EVERY recipe that I have made so far (10 or so) has turned out PERFECT! Its so nice to have some healthy alternatives for my favorite foods AND some new things Ive never tasted before and have become an instant family favorite!
I would recommend this cookbook to ANYONE.. whether you need to lose weight or not. Its just great food! :O)...more info
- I LOVE THIS COOKBOOK!!
The recipes in this cookbook are great! Every one of them has been easy to make and tastes delicious. The servings sizes are for 1-2 servings on most of the recipes (some 4-6), which is great for single people that do not want to have leftovers for a week. One of the desserts is so good that my entire family is hooked. I have eaten foods that I normally stayed away from but now I'm addicted to. I highly recommend this to any person looking for healthy alternatives. I have been recommending this cookbook to all of my friends, even those that are not looking to lose weight....more info
- Delicious recipes
I would highly recommend this book. It is put together in a fun way and the recipes from former contestants make it feel more doable. The meals are fantastic....more info
- Biggest Loser Cookbook
I was expecting more recipes from the dietitians and other experts. But it mostly had recipes from contestants....more info
- Great cookbook!
This book has great recipes from real people. This makes it easy to follow the diet plan....more info
- Yummy recipes!
Being a fan of the show Biggest Loser, I decided to try out the cookbook for some new recipes. I have not been disappointed yet, my whole family has been enjoying them....more info
- The Book for Those Who Hate to Cook and Want to Lose Weight
I really hated to cook. My idea of cooking was grabbing my laminated folder of takeout menus and ordering a variety of fast food and Chinese takeout. But after doing that for the past five years I am three sizes larger and my stretch pants are about to split the seams. Even worse, the money I spent on meals out I could have saved and taken a trip to Paris.
A friend suggested I find a cookbook that was easy, healthy (no missing food groups) and had single serving portions. After sitting on the floor in my bookstore and perusing tons of diet cookbooks, I decided to give this one a try.
The recipes are for one or two servings. I can eat one and save the other to reheat or take for lunch. It's also the first book I have found that has simple recipes (not twenty hard to find ingredients) and makes healthier versions of fast food favorites.
I love that I can make my own version of an egg muffin sandwich (instead of the one at Starbucks), BBQ chicken pizza (I was always ordering that one from a local pizza joint), a grilled cheese sandwich (my favorite with tomato soup) and more.
I am a chocolate freak so the frozen hot chocolate idea was new to me, and I love the chocolate mousse parfait.
The author Devlin Alexander lost 55 pounds and has kept them off for over a decade. This book is so good and easy to use that I am going to buy all her other books and keep adding one or two recipes to my meal plan each week. Instead of planning my takeout orders each day, I now make a meal plan on Sunday, then cook up and freeze meals in single portions ahead of time.
I never thought I would use anything other than my microwave to nuke leftover takeout food. Now my stove is getting a real workout. And I am saving for a trip to Paris at the end of the year to buy me a slinky designer black dress....more info
- Great, I love it!
This is a great Cookbook! I use it all the time. The only problem is the servings. Most recipes are portioned for only one or two servings. I cook for a family of 5. It has great lunch and snack ideas, I love all the input and recipes from the show contestants.
- some easy, tasty recipes....
Being a fan of the show, I have lost approx. 56 pounds myself. I am always looking for new recipes, this has many! I would recommend this to anyone that wants to loose some weight or maintain your loss. ...more info
- good reading and good eating
the photographs in this book are mouth-watering and the pages are filled with a wide variety of easy recipes. there's something for everyone. we've enjoyed many of them and look forward to more exploring. my husband, who doesn't need to diet, loves the sweet potato fries, as does my celiac/vegan daughter. i love the breakfast ideas and many quick snacks. full of great tips from the cast members and coaches. i actually bought a second and am sending it to my sister....more info
- Great Recipes
This is a good book with good recipes. I have tried a couple already and they are actually good! I wish there were more recipes instead of reading about the different people from the tv show. Come out with another book please! ...more info
- Biggest Loser
This book is sorely lacking in good "normal" recipes. It seems to reinvent wraps and omelets in a ton of different ways, but nothing really interesting or the recipes contain ingredients that I wouldn't have on hand. Chucked it away in the cupboard...what a waste ...more info
- Really great recipe ideas.
Good recipies. A little heavy on brand marketing, but there are other options in the stores....more info
- Pretty good!
I've been watching the TV show for the past three seasons. My only wish is that this book were not so "old" as it contains information from previous contestants with whom I am unfamiliar. I've tried out a few of the recipes and have started to incorporate some of the principles in my grocery shopping. So far, pretty good!...more info
- Realistic recipes
Easy to follow instructions with great results. We will be using this book on a regular basis....more info
- Some good recipes.
I've tried a few of the recipes in this book. Some were really good, so far only one I would not make again. Still not really what I was hoping for. It's lacking a bit in creativiy....more info
- Diet Queen
Dieting forever. Thought i knew it all. this book enlightened me even more and gave me recipes i won't get bored with any time soon. Great buy! ...more info
- Satisfied customer
I am very satisfied with this book. I can't believe how easy some of the recipes are. I also think that the book is very informative....more info
- Biggest Loser Cookbook
The cookbook was in great condition and I received the book in the mail right away. ...more info
- Some really outstanding healthy recipes in here!
I really enjoy this cookbook. I'm not much for cooking, but there are recipes for every type of cook in here. I found some really easy ones that I love to make that even my husband enjoys! it's also very motivating to hear from others who have had struggles similar to my own. I'd definitely recommend this book for anyone who wants to live a healthy lifestyle!...more info
