In this companion cookbook to the bestselling Win the Fat War, Prevention magazine food editor and registered dietitian Regina Ragone reveals time-tested recipes and strategies of ordinary people who have lost weight and kept it off for an average of six years. The Win the Fat War Cookbook contains 175 simple, low-calorie, low-fat recipes for everything from Chicken Fajitas to Peanut Butter Cake with Chocolate Frosting, all of which include nutritional breakdowns and diet exchanges that any weight watcher is sure to identify with. The main requirements for taking and keeping weight off permanently, says Ragone, is to not deprive yourself of your favorite foods, to eat smartly, budget your calories, and burn off more calories than you are taking in.
In addition to the recipes, inspirational weight-loss tomes, and advice from weight-loss experts including Dean Ornish, M.D., and the folks at the Canyon Ranch and Rancho La Puerta spas, Ragone provides helpful charts--including "What's Your Weight Loss Personality?" "Calorie-Saving Swaps Away from Home," and "Low-Fat? Look Again"--as well as useful (although not brand-new) tips, like eat every two to four hours, swap fruit for fat in baked goods, and beware of oil "sponges" like eggplant. While intended as a cookbook rather than a diet program, the book concludes with "Two Weeks to a Slimmer You," a 14-day diet plan consisting of five "meals" per day at the 1,500-, 2,000- and 2,500-calorie levels. Although the plan does not offer choices or vegetarian options, there is plenty of variety, and portions are substantial enough to keep most people satisfied until the next meal. --Bree Altman
