Customer Reviews:

  • 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
  • Great for a single person
    The majority of the recipes in this cookbook are single servings so if you are by yourself you won't over eat, but it is also easy to multiply the recipe to serve many others. It didn't forget the flavor in this healthy cookbook either, like so many other do! ...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 in the book
    You may have to acquire a taste for some of the recipes, but it worth the effort to at least try them....more info
  • This Book is the Biggest Winner!
    As a huge fan of The Biggest Loser and a fledgling at a new weight loss regime, I found this book a most helpful part of beginning my journey.

    The recipes are easy, great tasting and are not time consuming like other recipe books I have tried in the past. Be sure and check out Brian's Banana Split breakfast recipe - it is one of my staple meals! Thanks so much, Devin. Keep 'em coming!...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
  • Review of the Biggest Lose Cookbook
    This is a good book. Lots of great recipes and snack ideas for those trying to loose weight....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
  • 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, 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Great cookbook
    This cookbook has, in my opinion, many good recipes for those who are looking for a healthier diet. My wife and I have been cooking with recipes from it and a couple of other cookbooks since Christmas, and, coupled with my exercise, I have lost about 25 pounds....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
  • 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
  • Cookbook
    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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Not really all that healthy
    Okay, this is a cute, fun, easy cookbook and some of the things are definitely yummy. However, I wouldn't live by it. It's okay to use if you are severely overweight if it will help you drop a few.
    But if you're looking to maintain for life or just have a bunch of go to healthy recipes, a good portion of this book should be avoided.

    For example, the banana creme breakfast thingy calls for artificially sweetened boston cream yogurt. We all know that aspartame is really bad for you and that splenda with its sugar alcohols can really upset your tummy. (If you have an onset of inexplicable gas -- I'd point to sucralose or maltitol as the culprits -- seriously, not fun) Second of all, it calls for low fat peanut butter. Peanuts are a high fat food..and peanut butter should contain...well...peanuts, right? So, if the fat is getting cut out..something else is getting put in - most likely chemicals or trans-fats like CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, FULLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS (RAPESEED AND SOYBEAN), MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES (I pulled that directly from the label of low fat JIF). Mono/diglycerides are animal derived and are used to emulsify and frankly, have too many syllables to be a chemical I want to consume frequently. ...more info
  • Yum!
    This is a great cookbook. It has pictures of most of the food, and nutrition facts for EVERYTHING. And the food is delicious. It also includes advice on exercise. The only problem I have--and it's a problem with all "healthy" cookbooks--is that it's hard to find SOME of the ingredients in your average grocery store. I have only had a problem with one or two recipes, and I am sure a trip to a health food store would prove successful, but I am just talking about convenience. Overall, though, I have to say BUY IT....more info
  • Tastey
    I really enjoy these recipes. I hate eating bland healthy food and I really thought these were practical and had flavor....more info
  • Not For Me
    I was disappointed with recipes that only serve one and have ingredients (brand name specific, herbs/seasonings, etc.) that are generally not in my frig or pantry. I cook for more than one and having to have a calculator and shopping list for each meal is not my cup of tea. I'll stick to my all-time favorite collection of cookbooks by Joanna Lund. They're teriffic....more info
  • Little Disappointed
    The recipes seem to repeat themselves and don't have a great variety among them. When eating healthy, I try to find a variety of tastes in recipes and this book didn't seem to have them. Great on desert ideas though. And the recipes are simple enough. I do prefer the Light and Tasty recipes or Quick and Easy recipes better. ...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.

  • Excellent
    I received this cook book promptly and the recipes are fantastic. I love having pictures along with the recipes....more info
  • Easy !
    I'm not a great cooker to be honest!! I found this book really easy to follow ,well explained, I gave it 4 stars becaus i thnk that all the participants stories should go in a different book and not in a cook book ,it could have saved more pages to add more recipes but It's highly recommended....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
  • Some really good recipes!!!
    Some of the recipes are really good - of the dozen or so that my husband and I have tried, there was only one that we said we wouldn't make again - I was really surprised that a "healthy" eating cookbook would offer so many options that taste good and easy to make. I also liked that they included the nutrition information on every page, and most have pictures with them. Overall, I am pretty pleased with this recipe book. ...more info
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
    ...more info
  • The Biggest Loser Cookbook
    This cookbook is good, but I like her other cookbook Fast Food Fix better than I do this one. ...more info
    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
  • Not Just For Dieters
    Love it. According to my husband I have a slight addiction to cookbooks but this cookbook I would not have looked at since I'm not looking to be the Biggest Loser. My coworker (who is a fitness attict) brought it in to work and I started to look at it. I was hooked and had to purchase it myself. I have made 3 meals so far and they are healthy, SIMPLE, and small portion sizes so you don't always have to cook a meal for 8. This cookbook is for anyone who wants to cook a nutritious meal that they do not have to feel guilty about in the morning. Then I also have the Paula Deen collection for the other days!! ...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
  • 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
  • Biggest Cookbook
    Lots of great ideas in this book, its not a diet book, it will help you change your eating habbits. A number 1....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
  • A Good Buy
    This book has a lot of great recipes and they're pretty basic. I use it to give me meal ideas, especially snacks and breakfast. Although a few of the recipes are very similar, it's still chalk full of delicious recipes, not to mention a little info on all the participants and some basics about the biggest loser eating plan. If you're on the fence, I say go for it....more info
  • Decent recipes
    I purchased this as I am trying to increase my cooking skills and improve my health through eating right. I really enjoy the show, and there are several really good recipes, but that are many that were a disappointment. You also need to be careful with calories and fat content on several of the recipes. My recommendation is to purchase Chris Carmichael's book "5 Essentials for a Winning Life". It has some challenging recipes, but they are very good and you can feel the difference when you eat correctly.

    I guess the main thing to remember is that everyone is different, so what works for me may not work for you. Good luck with your goals! ...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
  • 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
