Devin takes the food we love, ups the nutrition, lowers the calories and fat, and keeps it tasting just as good as the original. She wrote the Biggest Loser cookbooks, Fast Food Fix (which takes fast food favorites and makes them healthier), and The Most Decadent Diet Ever (my current favorite).
Without these cookbooks, I may be off the wagon by now. But she makes healthy food taste so good that I don't even want the junk any more!

When I am sick of eating healthy, I like to get out my healthy cookbooks & look through them for ideas. The pictures look so yummy that it is hard not to get motivated to get back on track. I always seem to find something new & delicious.
I like Hungry Girl cookbooks the best!
I spent the money for a recipe program for my computer and save recipes I find in magazines, books, online, etc.. We can only recall and save so many recipes from the many places we see them. This way, recipes I find which are healthy and look good are at my fingertips. This program actually allows me to copy a recipe and "captures" it to avoid a lengthy process of transcribing it over.
I bought Living Cookbook 2011 online for $35.00 and do like it.
I LOVE cooking !!! The Sparkrecipes here are pretty easy to fix,have helpful comments that I have been able to use, and list all the calories by each ingredient! What could be easier? I know--trying something new! But if you DON"T use the SP recipes , you are robbing yourself of some pretty good dishes that help with the weight loss! They are filling,low on calories[at least I require the recipes I choose to be around 200-400 cals.so that's low to me!] since most of the time I prepare ...
...them for dinner. I am still working on my cookbooks,as I feel I need quite a few recipes[at least 10 ] to post a public cookbook! And I want to try ALL the recipes I choose. I have started work on at least 8 cookbooks right now....
