Cook Yourself Thin

A cookbook based on the popular television series.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The ladies of Lifetime's reality show, "Cook Yourself Thin," have consolidated some of their most delicious and skinny recipes into a cookbook.

"Cook Yourself Thin: Skinny Meals You Can Make in Minutes" offers 80 easy, accessible and scrumptious recipes that make watching your weight and satiating your taste buds, a match made in kitchen heaven.

The challenge with losing weight is that after a few days noshing on salads with lemon juice, plain chicken breast and oatmeal with no-calorie sweeteners, our bodies may show the results but our hearts, mouths and bellies are desperate for delicious food. So rather than ditch the diet and regress back to the boxed macaroni and cheese, the culinary and healthy-minded experts from Cook Yourself Thin have created an entire cookbook of makeover recipes that allow you to wear your bikini and eat your mac & cheese.

Learning tips on how to cut calories from comfort foods and how to bake using healthy and low-fat ingredients, "Cook Yourself Thin" gives skinny alternatives to your cravings.
