    The South Beach Diet Parties and Holidays Cookbook is an excellent addition to your cookbook collection whether you are following the program or not.
    5-0 out of 5 stars yummy in the tummy
    While being in the healthy foods business for many years, I have had a deaf ear to fad diets.When my husband's physician suggested he try the South Beach Diet to lose weight, I ran to the library to find out what was going on with this popular diet.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Cookbook -- Even if you are NOT on the Diet
    Try the recipes even if they look odd compared to what you're used to eating. The food is LOADED WITH flavor that somehow satisfies your hunger with far less food than ordinary. Not only that, but after you eat these foods you feel GOOD and HEALTHY instead of just STUFFED and TIRED (like normal food.) ... Read more

    It looks simple and easy. It's all about you!
    1-0 out of 5 stars Le Garbage
    Sure, you might lose weight on this diet, but ultimately, your health will decline.Almost everything in here is packed with sugar or preservatives as the suggested ingredients.I actually GAINED weight from this plan!I was only 5 lbs overwight when I started (125 and 5'4") and gained five in about a month and a half.I switched to Ultrametabolism which actually has meat 116.5 (4 lbs. BELOW recommended weight for my height) and I feel fantastic.Buy Ultrametabolism by Dr. Mark Hyman, it contradicts everything (almost) that this book says.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!
    This is a fabulous cookbook.The recipes are simple and quick.The results are delicious and filling.I eat virtually all of my meals & snacks out of this book, and my energy remains stable throughout the day. I use about 95% of the recipes, which is unprecedented for a cookbook in my home, as my family tends to be picky.This has made dinners much for enjoyable for all of us without compromising my weight.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Gourmet recipes
    I cameacross the raw movement while on a juice fast, I have been juicing for several years now.When I found the book, the green juice recipes are worth the buy in themselves.Then I finally got a dehydrator and voila!Deliciouso!The snacks and the gourmet meals are far beyond what I have been doing, (3 months raw)even the salad dressings are amazing.If you have been spoiled with gourmet flavors then this is your book.Please note that the preparations are sometimes lengthy but well worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book, gorgeous food!
    I love this book!After browsing through it, I'm totally inspired to create raw food!Some of the recipes look a bit tricky, but overall the food sounds incredible.I am also very impressed by all the information they have about various health topics (lecithin, cutting out dairy) and their own personal stories and advice.I'm a raw food novice, but I can already tell that this is the best raw food book I own.As Sarma says, "Eat raw, live long!"

    5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE this book
    The recipes are great.Of all the raw food recipes I have tried these are the most flavourful and appetising.I love their wit and how they really do bring raw food eating into the real world.Taking the raw food diet out of the underground of what is viewed as fanatics and bringing it to the mainstream, fitting it into anyones life.You do not have to be a raw foodist to love their recipes.Many raw recipes that I have tried in the past have been less than exciting, not really enjoyable, and bland and boring.But these were all the opposite, full flavour, fulfilling, satisfying, indulgent. My first bite of the lasagna took my breath away.I had no idea that so much flavour could be packed into one bite and leave you with no guilt or heavy feeling, but just the opposite, give you energy.And the colours!!The colours are so vibrant, unmutted by cooking.Staying raw would not be hard with these recipes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is a great cookbook!
    I don't cook, but I have found Ms. Alexander's recipe's to be easy to follow and very tasty too! I can't believe that they are low cal and low fat, because they are very high in taste!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy , Delicious, Healthy Meals!I Highly Recommend!
    Last year I weighed 530 pounds. After being inspired by the TV show The Biggest Loser, I have lost 140 pounds so far. I still have about 200 more pounds to go. I KNOW that with recipes and meals like the ones featured in this book, that I will be able to reach my weight loss goals. The thing that I appreciate most about this cookbook is that the recipes are simple and easy to follow. I am a bachelor and am not an experienced cook but this book makes me look like a pro. I have been asked by so many people how I've lost the amount of weight that I have. The answer is simple...eat less (make healthier food choices and portion control), move more (daily exercise) and drink lots of water. The Biggest Loser has shown me how to lose my weight - The Biggest Loser Cookbook is helping to keep me going!! PS The Blueberry Pancakes are out of this world! Yumm!! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must for engaged couples!
    Add this to your shopping list for engaged couples -- for bridal showers, engagement gifts, or just as a gift during the stressful planning process. You'll give them the gift of prepping for marriage, nurturing and spoiling each other, domestic bliss times, and the relationship-bonding experience of cooking together. Rachael's recipes are fantastic, easy to create, and a great gift for couples who are either experienced or beginners in the kitchen. I highly recommend this as a top pre-wedding gift, and brides and grooms should register for it as well. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the Purchase
    "In Great Taste" is a pretty book to look through, with photos of some of the recipes scattered throughout the book.It has doable recipes for cooks of all experience levels--from the 6 ingredient Lemon Chicken recipe and the easy to make "Almond Bread", to more extensive recipes like Cioppino and Steamed Veal and Parsley with Crispy Artichokes (okay, that one I won't make because I don't think any one who understands veal would eat it, but that's personal preference).There are also included more exotic offerings, yet still simple to make, including desserts from La Tulipe and the Waldorf.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Realistic, commonsense plan
    I just got this book after searching for a plan that would work for me and my boyfriend.We are both average in weight and only need to drop 15 pounds which isn't outrageous, but our current lifestyle is clearly not conducive to that.I love to cook, but I don't want to struggle every night after work trying to make dishes that are confusing and frankly, sound gross.This book offers a structured plan that takes the guesswork out of shopping and many of the dishes are healthier versions of familiar favorites.One person here commented that some of the recipes don't seem heart healthy because they include trans-fats.Yes, there is a menu item titled "glazed doughnut" and one titled "bacon biscuit".But if you look at the entire 2 week menu, it is an exception to the rule.Let's face it, like many of us my boyfriend goes to an office that brings in breakfast Every Friday.At least it's built into the plan that, yes, Friday morning you can have a doughnut but then steers you back throughout the rest of the day.And what about the meetings where they pass around a menu and say, "pick something from this sandwich shop because we are having a lunch meeting"?Thankfully, the AHA has built these scenarios into the plan as well and suggests lower fat/lower calorie options.For working professionals, this book is great.I'm not going prepare elaborate homemade lunches and snacks everyday to take to work (one book called for soba noodles with peanut-tofu sauce and miso soup...I'm not making that at 5 a.m.!).Graham crackers, fruit, carrots and bean dip, though are do-able snacks and much better choices than whatever is in the vending machine.

    This cookbook is amazing.The author is a genius on how to get foods that are equal to or better than their egg-and-dairy counterparts. Love it love it love it!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I've got more vengeance than you can shake a stick at
    When I first checked this book out from the library I did something that I've never done with a cookbook before--I sat down and just read it. The author is so entertaining, witty, and engaging that I just liked reading the recipe descriptions, punk points, tips from Fizzle the cat, and litte vignettes that are woven into the book.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous!!!
    Although not a Vegan, I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone. First, whether or not you are vegan, I am certain that several recipes from this book will become favorites of yours as they did for me. In addition, this book would have stood on its own as a book of stories. If you want to laugh out loud as I did while reading this book on the bus on my way to work, simply check out the stories written in the introduction, before each section and preceding each recipe as well as Ms. Moskowitz' punk points and 'Fizzle Says:' paragraphs. Great recipes for every meal of the day and scrumptious desserts for any time. No matter what your age,gender, musical inclinations or dietary preferences, this is a cookbook for all.

    The recipes are good, especially the potatoe and pesto dish. I did not like the dish called Breakfast bread pudding,due to the fact I thought the flavors contradicted each other.

    Editorial Review

    There's a popular game at baby showers in which the new mom-to-be has to taste jarred baby food and guess its contents. Inevitably, the first comment is "Yuk! How do they eat this stuff?" The answer, of course, is that babies don't know there's an alternative--fresh, delicious, wholesome food made at home. In the beautifully and extensively illustrated Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely best cookbook - don't be afraid to try to cook the amazing and tasty visual treats!
    I first checked this book out of the library when my son was a baby and found really awesome recipes for baby food. I could hardly resist eating the peas, leeks and potatoe recipe myself even as a puree! The recipes for party foods were a huge hit for his first birthday. Overnight I became the star of our baby group!

    I used this book for both of my older children (now 7 & 4) and just dug it back out for our new little one (7 months old).Once again I am impressed by the variety of recipes presented.I think offering a wide variety of healthy foods from the start of solid feeding is one of the reasons I don't have any trouble introducing new foods to my older children now.They love their vegitables and enjoy trying all types of food even those that many adults would find new or exotic.I agree that some of the recipes take a bit longer than opening a jar and reheating.Many take the same amount of time as preparing a dish for an adult dinner...but since many of the recipies can be frozen (I make bigger batches and then freeze in small portions that can be thawed as needed)I only need set aside a couple of hours every month or so to have a wide variety of good and healthy dishes available to serve.

    I really like this cookbook.I know my infant needs good nutrition, and now have a great resource to use.The book does use some "new" foods for my family, but now that we have stocked the kitchen it is a snap to try new healthy fun food.My son, 15 months, loves these recipes. They are not the quickest meals in the world, but if you enjoy preparing good food for mealtime, this will be a useful book for you. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This book is just what I needed.
    I've seen some bad reviews of this book, but those people must not have needed it as badly as I did. I found this book after working through my chronic yeast infection for a year.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
    This book is well organized and easy to follow even for those who are new to the kitchen.When I started this diet this was the main book I used because it made things simple.I started out as a novice cook who was extremely anxious about all the work that I foresaw in giving up sugar, yeast, wheat...and now I don't find it all that difficult and I'm a better cook for it!My only criticism is that sometimes the recipes are too similar, but it does teach a novice like myself what foods work together and how to make alterations.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Turned our boy around
    I thought I was fixing reasonably healthy foods, but was amazed to realize that even my all-purpose flour had "malted barley flour" lurking in it.Cooking with the express intent of minimizing neurotoxins has transformed our 6-yr-old high-functioning autism boy.We had seen multiple doctors, and had been told that to function in school he would probably need medication.On this diet, his explosive meltdowns disappeared almost completely starting from the 4th day on Stage III.We also use a probiotic (Kirkman Acidophilus Plus), Yummi Bear vitamins, a calcium supplement, a vitamin C supplement, and the recommended Nystatin.See other books on biological treatment of PDD for the use of activated charcoal to minimize "die-off" reaction from Nystatin.We ramped up the Nystatin slowly, which probably helped.Now we are encouraged enough to explore some of the other PDD biological treatments (e.g. heavy metal detox).I also feel like I have learned how to really cook for the first time in my life!Big learning curve, but worth it!!! ...

    3-0 out of 5 stars TOO COMPLICATED
    WAY TOO COMPLICATED DIET TO FOLLOW
    5-0 out of 5 stars common sense or not?
    I lost 5lbs the first 2 weeks. I regularly eat very heathy, but need to exercise more(or at all), so i was suprised that i lost the 5lbs just from eating a little healthier and have managed to keep it off. I think it is a good book if you are interested in learning better eating habbits, if you eat poorly. Alot of it is common sense about portion size and eating the right foods for your body to function properly. I don't think you need all the suppliments that she wants you to take, a good multivitamin doesn't hurt though. I didn't follow through after the two weeks because of my schedule, but i do plan to give the rest of it a shot. I think if you need something to jump start you to eat healthy and get rid of all the junk you eat than this is a good way to go. If you really like your junk food than this book is not for you.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ann Gittleman is great.
    This doc really knows her stuff.While you might need to have a high IQ and time to digest.... She is very very informative.

    5-0 out of 5 stars More recipe ideas for the guy on the go
    This latest book in the Abs Diet franchise is essentially another recipe book. As the title indicates, these are quickie recipes that can be made in minutes, though they throw in a few more involved meals at the end. Be clear, these are tasty and healthful recipes aimed at the fitness-oriented individual. You don't have to necessarily be following the Abs Diet plan per se, but anyone who has adopted a weightlifting + aerobics exercise program with a high-protein, controlled-carb and controlled-fat diet will find this book has what you're looking for, especially if you want meals you can make quickly and stick into a tupperware container to eat throughout the day.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad at All
    Handy book with lots of recipes that keep you on the Abs Diet. Very useful and straightforward. Could be a little better organized, but overall it's a great tool for shedding body fat.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Lastest Companion for a Great Book - Helped me lost more than 200 lbs in a Healthy Way
    This is the perfect companion for the "The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for Life" Book, and "The ABS Diet Eat right Everytime Guide". Buy this book only if you at least have read the first "ABS Diet" Book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
    I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.
    2-0 out of 5 stars No comfort food recipes
    I was very disappointed that this cookbook didn't have more comfort food recipes.It used ingredients that you wouldn't normally have on hand.I was looking for recipes for meatloaf, mac & cheese.I won't buy another cookbook that I can't review first.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised
    As someone who doesn't like to spend hours in the kitchen...and who is also a new Weight Watchers member...I can say that this is of great benefit to me.The recipes that I've tried have been quick and non-complicated with good flavor.The ingredients are all easily obtained at your local stores...no hunting for "exotic" spices or anything.I'm glad I got it. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE Diet!
    Dr. Gallands book was recommended to me by a friend and I decided to give it a try because I was at my wits end with all the diets out there.I had tried Weight Watchers, South Beach...etc, and always lost a few pounds but gained them back and then some.After following Dr. Gallands diet for 10 days, I had lost 11 pounds.My skin actually felt smoother and my energy levels went sky high!2 months later I am down 20 pounds and have no intention of stopping.The recipes are easy, the foods are delicious and my cravings for refined sugar and flour are completely gone. I now look forward to snacking on fresh fruits and vegetables and I can even go out to restaurants and choose healthy, delicious foods.I don't look at it as a diet anymore, I look at it as a lifestyle change. This will be the last diet book you will ever buy.Trust me, If I could do it, anyone can!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Fat Resistance Diet by Leo Galland, M.D.
    The Fat Resistance Diet by Leo Galland, M.D. explains how important curing inflammation is to our over all health and how to do it with food, the side effect of this type of diet is weight loss. The book has daily meal plans, recipes, including a shopping list and lists of healthy food. The Fat Resistance Diet has exercises for stress reduction and to strengthen the torso for flexibility, which improves posture. Leo Galland, M.D. gives the reader the newest medical information and a step-by-step plans on how to become healthier. I highly recommend this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fat Resistance Diet
    While the book was easy to read, preparing the food is quite time consuming if cooking is not something you really enjoy.Convenience foods aren't anywhere on this diet.Everything is fresh and requires lots of chopping. For the most part, my husband and I like the foods.However, during the first two weeks of the diet I felt that I was constantly Shopping for products, Preparing food, Eating food, or Thinking about preparing the food!!! It was stressful!And after all of that work I only lost two pounds in the first two weeks. The author says you will loose six to ten pounds in the first two weeks.I've kept up the diet (four weeks now) and it has gotten easier to prepare the foods.I have lost a total of four pounds now.The biggest change for me is cooking breakfast.In the past I typically ate cold cereal and a piece of fruit.This diet requires that one set aside time to prepare omelets and frittatas for the morning meal.While time consuming (if you are in a rush in the mornings) these breakfasts taste very good!In these four weeks I've tried some new foods. I am eating foods that are good for my health.Just wish I had lost more weight by now.I only wanted to loose 10 pounds. I intend to continue this diet. ... Read more
