Book Review: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 200-300-400 Calorie Meals
About the Book The Complete Idiot’s Guide to 200-300-400 Calorie Meals
People who want to lose weight are faced with a dizzying array of options: low-fat, low-carb, gluten-free … the list is endless. But the truth behind them all is that the only real way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you take in. Those who have rediscovered calorie counting want calorie-controlled options that take the guesswork out of dieting. But they also want food they can enjoy and feel good about. And for many, that means going light on the artificial sweeteners. The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to 200-300-and 400-Calorie Meals helps readers put together a meal plan that keeps them to their calorie goals.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book. This is a great book if you want to eat a specific amount of calories per day and are looking for a fast way to have access to nutritious meals. The book starts with a nice description of what is nutritious and what groceries you should have in your kitchen. The book provides sample meal plans. The recipes are easy to make and I love that they have the serving size. The calories are listed and a breakdown of their nutritional value. Best of all there are tons of recipes and the back of the book has a handy index. The only thing I would like to see added to the book is graphic pictures of the finished recipe.
