Lose Weight for Good: Full-flavour cooking for a low-calorie diet
About this deal
This is a lower-calorie diet with a difference – it's based on hunger-satisfying portions of delicious, lower-calorie dishes that taste amazing. It's been on my cookery book stand permanently since then in the kitchen and we cook from it most days of the week. Many thanks to the chef/author for including so many "comfort" dishes that would normally be no go for dieters.
I have tried a few of the Breakfast Meals so far, in particular, the "Overnight Porridge and Berry Compote" and the Cajun Scrambled Eggs and they are super tasty, and the best part of these meals even though its only breakfast, You Don't Feel Hungry an hour later which has stopped me from wanting to snack between meals. Now Tom is turning his attention to helping food-lovers who have chosen a low-calorie diet as their own route to weight-loss. The focus is on the food that we can and should be eating to lose weight, which is easy to make and won't make you feel as though you are missing out. As Tom 'It's impossible to stick to a diet if the food you're expected to eat is boring and doesn't fill you up. Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge has been developing top recipes for nearly three decades and knows how to make things taste good .
The recipes are easy to follow, but don't expect them to be quick to execute, quite a few of them require quite a bit of preparation, but as most dishes are well suited for freezing I don't think that is a problem. One of two other highly lauded diet books seem to consist of meals that whilst are low in calories, do not seem to contain that many healthy ingredients. It's hard to find low calorie diet books that cater to vegetarian diets as well, and then this book came along. I fully recommend this for everyone, meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, people trying to lose weight, and those that just want to expand their palette. I don't know how Tom does it but it's incredible, as snacking between meals is often the reason why most diets don't work.
Have recently purchased a few 'healthier' eating books and after trying a good few recipes out, this book (along with his Lose Weigh Get Fit) is in my opinion the best.
Some of the Meals, in particular, the Main Meals, will take a little time to do, but even with the busy lifestyles we lead, most of us, if not all of us, get at least 1 or 2 days off in the week, so with a little bit of good organisation and discipline, you can really enjoy the food in Tom's book and lead a Healthy Eating Lifestyle at the same time. It's impossible to stick to a diet if the food you're expected to eat is boring and doesn't fill you up. And at times just seem to be lower portion size versions of familiar dishes with one or two high calorie ingredients swapped out. As Tom says: `It's impossible to stick to a diet if the food you're expected to eat is boring and doesn't fill you up.
