Publisher Comments:

If you or someone in your family needs to lose weight, you may have lots of questions about how to achieve that goal. How can you prepare healthy meals when busy schedules mean that everyone's on the go? If only one person in your family needs to lose weight, where can you find diet-friendly dishes that everyone can enjoy? What can you do to help your kids develop good food habits that will last a lifetime?

This book can help. Teaming up with weight-loss and nutrition experts, Betty Crocker has created a comprehensive resource that focuses on the simple steps your family can take to build and strengthen healthy eating and exercise habits together.

In this definitive yet friendly guide, you'll learn how nutrition, exercise, psychology and physiology can all play a part in helping your family lose weight. With the help of practical advice, delicious recipes that are easy to follow and a user-friendly format, you'll be able to take a proactive, multipronged approach to weight management—and become a family of successful "losers."

Best of all, you'll discover that losing calories and weight doesn't have to mean giving up great food. All 140 recipes contain 10 grams or less of fat and 20 percent fewer calories than regular recipes, yet taste terrific. Easy menu ideas make meal-planning a snap, while plenty of kid-friendly options—including desserts!—plus 30-minute dinners, slow-cooker recipes and more offer something for everyone and for every day of the week.

Throughout, you'll find helpful eating and lifestyle tips from weight-loss expert Dr. Jim Hill and a nutritionist, along with encouragement and advice from people who have lost weight and kept it off. You'll also find lots of practical ideas to help you along the way, from stocking a healthy pantry to finding easy ways to get fit.

So why not start today? With your family and Betty Crocker working together, you'll have a winning weight loss team!
