Cook Yourself Thin is a healthy, delicious way to drop a dress size without all the gimmicks. Author interviews, book reviews, editors' picks, and more. Editorial Reviews. About the Author. Lauren Deen is a multiple Emmy Award- winning lifestyle Similar books to Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals You Can Make in Minutes (Voice). Cook Yourself Thin is a recipe book that helps dieters give their favorite indulgent meals a healthy makeover by cutting the calories without losing flavor.

For some of us, losing weight has always been a struggle. The challenge: Cook Yourself Thin shows how to cut calories, change diets, and improve health without sacrificing the foods we love. Cook Yourself Thin is not a fad diet. It gives skinny alternatives to your cravings. You can't live without your chocolate cake or mac 'n' cheese? You don't have to!

Ultimate sausage cheese pizza tried with all different toppings and tons of veggies. Don't forego dessert, just do it smart. We love: Vanilla Cupcakes with whole wheat flour Red velvet cupcakes my husband hates beets, but loves these! Chocolate brownie with raspberries and white chocolate chips. I chopped up strawberries Carrot cake my mom said it's the best she's ever had, and she orders it often That's all we have tried so far I'm becoming confident that we will be happy with each and every one.

The one complaint I have is that it often requires many pots and pans and several cooking techniques in order to complete one meal. It can add up to quite a pile of dishes, but I just figure I'm burning calories during the clean-up! I have dropped a dress size in about 6 weeks! Okay, so I've cooked more recipes from this book than I have some of the other cookbooks sitting on my shelf, but I have to say, there is the occasional detail missing from one or another recipe.

For instance, for the 'Vanilla and Strawberry Sponge Cake', strawberries are called for twice, once in filling and once in icing, but the instructions are confusing with respect to how to work the strawberries in. When you're told to top the filling with half the strawberries, it's actually 'top with all the strawberries listed as part of the filling'.

With the roasted veggies in truffle oil, we're instructed to mix in truffle oil with olive oil and then roast for 45 min - I suspect you're actually supposed to add the truffle oil in with just a few minutes left to roast - that's how most work with truffle oil. But it's these sort of mistakes that are laced here and there among the recipes. One person found this helpful. The book does contain all the recipes I saw them do on TV.

This is not really a 'diet' cookbook. Its more of a lifestyle cookbook, showing you how you can cook your favorite foods without adding all the excess calories but not lose the good taste.


IE, one thing that is used a lot is zuccini, as its a good moist vegetable that can be used a a filler in stuffed shells, so you consume less fatty cheese, or in cupcakes instead of a fattier alternative. But you would not really even know its there because the taste is so good.

I would highly recommend this cookbook if you want to simply cut a lot of calories out of your meals without losing the taste. The only downside I find to the book is that all the dishes are not pictured, I like to see what something needs to look like when you are done.

There are some pictures, but not for every dish. See all reviews.

They discussed common myths about dieting, the flaws of diet programs, how to keep a food journal just to learn about eating habits, and what a calorie is.

There were suggested food lists, directions on how to read better labels, and the many different names of sugars. Towards this part of the philosophy section, I began rolling my eyes.

Those of us who have ever dieted know all of this information. I quickly began skimming this section and moved on to the recipes. Looking over the recipes, I flagged about ten that I would actually cook in real life and not the dream world in my head.

The first was that it included food substitutions that I already incorporate into my diet, like using ground turkey over ground beef. Secondly, it called for ingredients that I already have in my fridge or could have bought easily on a grocery run trip.

There were two major faults I found with the recipes from this book. The first was a preference thing. Some of the substitutions are ones that are unique to certain diets, such as using ricotta cheese for whipped cream as is frequently done on the South Beach Diet.

I personally detest ricotta cheese unless it is in a lasagna. Ricotta does not belong on top of my french toast. The second issue I had was that the recipes included minute amounts of lots of ingredients, many of which are difficult to find.

If I was living near a city, then this would be less of a problem. However, in the country, my grocery store is 35 minutes away. I am not going to make a special trip to the store just because I need two tablespoons of rice flour.

Overall, I think that this book has a lot of value because they are encouraging people to make smarter choices about their cooking.

They provide some useful ways to incorporate helpful decision tools for the uneducated individual. However, readers should not expect to have their lives changed by the book. However, I would be extremely disappointed if I paid full price for it. Otherwise, I thought the information in the intro was very helpful - they give you several ways to just check yourself to find out where you're falling off the calorie wagon and good suggestions to get yourself back on without depriving yourself of foods you love.

Also, the recipes were things I could actually see myself making and enjoying - and better yet, my kids would probably eat most of them! That's important since I refuse to cook separate meals for grownups and littles.

Definitely worth a look see if you're trying to lighten your load without the misery of diet food. This book is based on a Lifetime Television show. By making changes that are smart and simple, change is more gradual and success is slower. But the results are longer lasting and one avoids gaining weight back after it has already been lost.

I can't wait to try them to see if they live up to my expectations Another thing I enjoyed was the beautiful photography. The food styling was impeccable, I wish there were more photos in the ebook vers I decided to read this book because I'm at a stage where I can't simply eat the things I used to!

The food styling was impeccable, I wish there were more photos in the ebook version! Aug 05, Melissa Bee rated it it was ok. Well the quiz to find out what kind of eater I am was NO Surprise. I'm a comfort food eater. I eat to celebrate, grieve, calm down, etc I also love to cook.

So I don't have to leave home to create food that is gonna stick to my hips forever. I understand the game plan of the book: Doesn't mean I'm gonna change though.

Jan 12, Amy rated it liked it. The recipes in this book are okay.


I didn't read the first part, as I am on weight watchers and just wanted it for the recipes, but I don't know why you would have all of these recipes that will assist you in dropping a dress size and not put the nutritional info.

Again, maybe it was omitted for some reason that I didn't read about - but for those wanting to drop more than a tricky 5 pounds so we can fit into our summer tennis whites, the nutritional information would have been a help.

The recip The recipes in this book are okay. Mar 21, Laura rated it liked it. One case where the show is better than the book. There isn't anything wrong with the book, but if you read 'Cooking Light' or are interested in healthy cooking at all, you'll know most of this already.

They do provide calorie counts, but other nutrition information isn't provided. On the other hand, these recipes are good and family-friendly, so if you're new to the idea of healthy eating this is a good place to start.

Nov 20, Kristi rated it liked it Shelves: I have see this show online and really liked the videos, so I thought the book would be worth purchasing.

I was wrong. I did not really find anything above and beyond the show in this book. The recipes are very typical dishes. I will say that the reason it got 3 stars rather than 2 was the fact that it has some helpful skinny alternatives. Save your money and just watch the videos. Aug 11, Stacey rated it it was ok. This is pretty basic stuff. Using healthy Greek yogurt and skim milk to bolster smoothies instead of ice cream; add things like spinach, zucchini and sweet potato to sweets to make them healthier; use lots of fresh herbs for flavor I was kind of disappointed, though I did like the look of the Chocolate Pavlova.

Dec 20, Janet Morris rated it really liked it Shelves: Not only does this book have several appetizing recipes for people looking to lose weight, it also has information on food storage, healthy cooking methods, and portion sizes. It also has sections devoted to what lower calorie foods you can substitute for the high calorie ones.

It's not perfect, but compared to similar cookbooks, this one is actually really great. Aug 26, Valerie Sherman rated it liked it.
