I have other ABS Diet books so I knew the premise. I wanted to substitute more fattening meals with healthy substitutes and these recipes are perfect. They introduce new flavors combinations and are delicious. I have served the food to guests and they love them and cannot believe they are lower in fat. I highly recommend this book for expanding your Abs Diet recipes. I think you will love them too!

I have a couple of the Eat this Not That books by this author (the original and the one for kids), but was skeptical about a cookbook. I figured I would have to clear out my pantry and buy all new stuff, or the recipes would be too complicated, or the end results would taste like cardboard! I was wrong on all accounts! I try to make something from this book 2-3 per week. I figure my family would save calories, as well as fat and salt consumption, and that would be better than doing nothing at all! My kids on occassion could be labeled as picky eaters and they have loved everything I've made from this book. I enjoy this book so much I have recommended it to pretty much everyone I know and have given a couple as gifts!!! I hope they are planning another cookbook in the future!! If they are I will be first in line to get it!!!

Cook This, Not That is the latest book about healthy eating from Zinczenko & Goulding. Eat This, Not That was hugely popular, and this one is proving to be as well. What the authors do so right is include ingredients and foods that real people actually want to eat...no nonfat whipped cream or tofu in sight. The colorful pictures and easy to follow directions make this a no-brainer. Any ordinary cook can whip up something far healthier than a chain restaurant in less time than it takes to drive there or have it delivered. I would never recommend a cookbook that I wouldn't try, so I have tried many recipes from Cook This, Not That. The ones that I have cooked have been delicious, from appetizers to desserts. Olive Garden's Fettucine Alfredo (A.K.A. Heart Attack on a Plate) rings in at 1,220 calories. The same taste can be gained from using a few tablespoons of butter, milk, flour, and good Parmesan for 540 calories. The Cheesecake Factory's Macaroni & Cheese? 1,482 calories PER SERVING. Or you can cook it at home for 480. No wonder we live in such an unhealthy world today with portions and ingredients that are served in these restaurants. Is there any appetizer that is not cooked in a deep fryer? Would you rather have Chili's Fire Grilled Chicken Fajita Quesadilla for 1,480 calories (FOR AN APPETIZER???) or make them at home in a cast-iron skillet for 310? It takes just as much effort. MY RATING FOR ANY BOOK IN THIS SERIES - 5/5 To see my rating scale and other reviews, please check out my blog: http://www.1776books.blogspot.com

I made a resolution this year to cook more at home. After reading this book, I'm going to try to cook almost every day. This is NOT the Eat This, Not That book that compares different fast food places. Instead, this book has recipes for foods you might order in a restaurant. It also includes the alarming, unhealthful details about the restaurant food along side the more healthy details of the recipes. I think this is a great book for people like me who like restaurant food but want to make it in a more healthful, inexpensive way.

I liked the supermarket version of this book, but this one ROCKS! I was only mildly interested when I bought it. Then, I showed it to a friend of mine and he was hooked. He went and bought the book, and to date has made more recipes than me! The buffalo wing recipe was great on chicken breast to make sandwiches and salad w/blue cheese!

These guides are for a very specific audience -- people who regularly eat chain food and do not cook. If you're already a health-oriented home cook, the book will be useless and probably outrageous, but you don't need the help either. If you're trying to wean yourself (or someone else) off of chain food in a gradual, sustainable way, this is a great start because it's healthy, inexpensive variations on standard menu items. Crucially, the recipes are also fast and easy for a novice. Along with the recipes, the book is jammed with general advice. The standard "I don't have time" to cook argument is attacked right in the beginning. There are pantry guides and great visual 'scorecards' on the relative merits of different cuts of meat, types of dairy, etc. Many recipes include variations, substitutions, and ideas for leftovers. Single-use gadgets are discouraged. A few dishes could use clearer explanations or photos (you'll never learn to make an omelet from their recipe) and the quick breakfast dishes really are not, although they also list the healthiest cereals. Somehow they think apricots are as large as peaches, and I'm not convinced that the salt and sugar in meat brines has a negligible effect.The 'ethnic foods' chapter is another where you need to remember the focus. These are what you find at popular chain restaurants, not what people in those countries actually eat. And the range of cuisines represented by those chains is very limited.You will not deprive yourself by eating this food. Baby back ribs marinated in Dr. Pepper. Ice cream sandwiches made with Pepperidge Farm Genevas. Bacon everywhere. Although no way is granita "every bit as satisfying as ice cream," even when layered with whipped cream.

Fun, interesting, and very likely I'll cook as many things in here as I can, since they all look delicious. Not only do they look good, they're easasy to shop for and prepare. Good idea well executed.

This could be a helful book, but I find the different sizes of font bothersome. The switching between bold and regular tpye is also a problem.

I can't believe how easy the recipes are most of them take less than an hour prep to finish. If you plan your meals before you shop, & you already have the stuff on hand most run about 30 minutes. I get more use out of my rotisserie, my George Foreman & my Food Processor than I ever did. I used to think I was ordering healthy at the restaurants but looking through this series I noticed I was always choosing the worst of the worsts. I have been cooking for my parents, my family & friends from this book & receiving rave reviews!! Lower calories..Less sodium, More Protein & Fiber.. I am now more regular than I have ever been in my life TMI I'm sure, but I always felt bloated & never satisfied, now when I eat I stay fuller longer.. also Kashi high in protein snacks.. the Bomb! I enjoy cooking & baking & unlike other diets now I have so much Freedom, I am loving this, It's not a diet, Thank you CTNT!
