9780060963613: Light and Spicy: Over 350 Low-Calorie, Full-Flavor Recipes
From Publishers Weekly:

"Forgettable food is the most insidious inducement to overeat. Unable to fulfill the psyche's desire for flavor satisfaction, it feeds the search." Gibbons's ( The International Slim Gourmet Cook book ) 14th cookbook sets out to "invoke . . . your attention with assertive seasoning" doled out in low-sugar, -salt, -fat and -cholesterol fare: Mexican, Indian, Chinese, Cajun, Thai. Highly spiced foods may help the body burn calories faster: according to one study cited, chili peppers eaten with a 700-calorie meal "erased" 45 of the calories consumed. But whether or not they cause calories to vanish, recipes here will safely rouse the appetite. Beginning with an annotated list of herbs and spices, Gibbons moves on to salad and soup recipes, such as Mexicali beef and beer soup (with turkey as an alternate, one serving totals 210 calories). Carnivores need not fear: whole chapters are devoted to beef, lamb and veal; poultry; and seafood, with barbecued meats earning separate treatment. Vegetables get somewhat shorter shrift. Designed for preparation with a minimum of fuss and bother, Gibbons's meals may not convert those for whom cream sauces, butter and sugar are a way of life, but dieters put to sleep by bland deprivation will wake up. Better Homes & Gardens Book Club and Troll Book Club selection; author tour.

From Library Journal:

Gibbons is the author of numerous diet cookbooks; here she emphasizes herbs, spices, and "assertive" seasoning in creating lighter, healthier dishes that don't seem like diet food. Her recipes represent an interesting international mix, from Turkey to Yugoslavia to Indonesia. There is a slightly supermarket-magazine feel to some dishes, and short-cut ingredients such as low-calorie bleu cheese dressing do crop up; still, many recipes are far better than their cutesy names suggest. Go with the paperback. Better Homes & Gardens selection.
