LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING by Audrey Johns (April 2016)

Like many Americans, Audrey Johns struggled with fad diets and constant weight gain. Nearing the three-hundred-pound mark, she was eating under 1,000 calories per day of frozen “diet” meals and still gaining weight. After trying every major diet out there (and some scary ones too!), Audrey was left with no lasting results and more broke than ever. That’s when she decided to go back to the basics. She taught herself how to cook and transformed her favorite foods into skinny versions. After only a year of eating her new skinny recipes, she went from a size 24 to a size 4, losing over 150 pounds in 11 months. LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING takes more than 130 recipes that are typically full of unhealthy processed foods and empty calories—recipes we simply shouldn’t eat every day—and creates skinny versions.

With fewer than 500 calories per serving that can actually help readers lose weight, she shows readers how to lose weight without giving up everyday family staples, such as pasta, scones, fried chicken, nachos, meatloaf, cookies, and so much more. A helpful and accessible diet and cookbook, LOSE WEIGHT BY EATING is full of guilt-free, low-calorie, unprocessed versions of all your favorite foods that are also picky-kid-friendly and husband-approved. With her new book, Audrey wants to help others who struggle with their weight or cooking skills to show that with a little kitchen confidence, you can change your life, your body, and your health.

My Review:

I really liked Lose Weight By Eating.  One of the things I look for in a cookbook is pictures and this one had lots of great pictures.  I am also trying to lose weight as you know from reading my blog so I love to find new recipes.  Lose Weight By Eating is all about eating clean and not using processed foods which I really like.  I am going to incorporate a number of the recipes into my eating plan. Audrey Johns the author lost about 150 pounds eating clean and following these recipes.  The nice thing is she provides lots of tips and also menu plans.

Some of the recipes I am going to try are the pizza recipes – there is an easy to make pizza crust and a number of different ideas for topping like a Hawaiian Pizza, Cowboy Pizza and a Pear Rosemary and Goat Cheese Pizza they all sound yummy to me!
