Review:

"Though she freely admits she's neither a nutritionist nor a doctor, more than 400,000 subscribers rely on author Lillien's 'Hungry Girl' e-newsletter for healthy eating tips. In this congenial compilation, most of which is new to the book, she gives dieters a breakfast-to-dinner approach to eating lighter with scores of easy to prepare dishes. Lillien's recipes enlist low-cal substitutes for traditional ingredients; diet lemon-lime soda and sugar-free powdered lemonade drink mix, for example, go into her Magical Low Calorie Margarita. In some cases, such as her Rockin' Restaurant Spinach Dip, Cheesy Chicken Quesadilla and Dan Good Chili, she approximates high-calorie dishes without sacrificing too much in terms of flavor or texture. Unfortunately, those are the exceptions-the Ice Creamless Banana Split and Cheery Chocolate Cheesecake Nuggets (which calls for diet hot cocoa mix, Splenda, fat free cream cheese and sugar free chocolate syrup) taste more like punishment than dessert. Salads are well represented, though few are served with any kind of dressing, and meat dishes can run sky high in sodium. Tips for smart eating at the office, holiday parties, trips and the movies are appreciated, but the book would have benefited from the input of a licensed nutritionist or dietician."

The recipes in this book fit the bill as
*easy/quick
*not too many ingredients
*low calorie

They vary in terms of whether they
* taste good
* are good for you

It's great to have low calorie options for foods we love and these are provided (sauces, desserts and cocktails are very nicely represented). My one concern with the Hungry Girl recipes is an over-generous reliance on unnatural food. All/almost all the dairy products are fat free, which often means increased additives; there are A LOT, A LOT, A LOT of artificial sweetners used. Splenda seems to be OK for us, but aspartame is generally regarded as not good for us. And some research has shown that the body "looks for the calories" and then stores fat when they aren't found if artificial sweetners are found. That said, I have used the sugar substitutes in these recipes in moderation and felt that I was still on the healthy side. I stick with Splenda, though. And I often substitute 75% reduced fat cheese for the non-fat versions because it it so much better. This increases the "points" (I'm on WW), but I think makes the recipes healthier in the long run.

Hungry Girl is at her best when working with vegetables and substituting real food. She works miracles and, like I started with, the recipes are easy and that makes them really work - because you will use them!

I recommend the book...just be mindful of too much artificial "food" in your diet.

I used the hungry girl tips and tricks and I have lost over 60 lbs. I was able to eat the food I loved but in a MUCH healthier way. If you LOVE food and it shows, this book will help you find the perfect alternatives to satisfy your ultimate cravings. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend - they will be forever in your debt! I cannot wait for the book signing in PA!
