From Amazon: “The road to a healthier lifestyle starts with small decisions and better choices. Now, with The Biggest Loser Simple Swaps, you can get healthy by simply swapping your old food, habit, and lifestyle choices for healthier versions every day. With 100 simple swaps that cut calories, save money, and provide better nutrition as well as more than 30 mouthwatering recipes that put these swaps into action, getting fit and healthy has never been easier. Learn how to:
- Swap lasagna noodles for veggies. Pasta used to be a guilty pleasure for many Biggest Losers—until they learned to make a healthy version. Try replacing lasagna noodles in your favorite recipe with slices of grilled zucchini or eggplant. Better yet, try the Veggie Lasagna recipe in Chapter 4!
- Swap traditional yogurt for Greek-style yogurt. Greek-style fat-free yogurt contains the same number of calories as regular fat-free yogurt but has twice the protein and half the carbs. It’s a great base for dips, too. Try using it in the French Onion Dip in Chapter 5!
- Swap sugary cereals for whole grains. The slow release of energy from complex carbs will help you feel full and keep your blood sugar steady and your energy revved. Or turn to Chapter 5 to make your own Hi-Pro Vanilla Breakfast Grains!
Throughout the book, you’ll also find advice and tips from The Biggest Loser experts, trainers, and the contestants themselves, who understand the challenges of fitting lifestyle changes into a busy schedule. These simple, budget-friendly swaps can make a major difference in your health and weight loss efforts. Start swapping—and losing—today!”
From Amazon: “Pizza. Huevos Rancheros. Pad Thai. Enchiladas. Some of America’s most-craved foods aren’t “American” in the traditional sense—they’re the international foods we love to order at restaurants or have delivered to our homes. But most renditions of these beloved ethnic dishes are full of fat and calories. How can dieters get the flavor they crave, without buying one of those reduced-calorie frozen meals that are full of salt and other preservatives?
Now, with The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook, they can have their lasagna and eat it too! With more than 75 recipes for favorite ethnic staples as well as legendary regional American cuisine created by Chef Devin Alexander and The Biggest Loser contestants, healthy eating has never been more exciting.
Readers will discover how former contestants reinvented favorite dishes from their own cultures and regions to fit into their healthy new lifestyle, and will learn how to cut the calories and fat from America’s most-loved ethnic foods. And Chef Devin Alexander’s reliably decadent creations save both money and calories, as any of these dishes can be made at home for a fraction of the cost of a restaurant or take-out meal.
The book will include recipes for meals, snacks, dinners, and desserts, and will cover a wide range of cuisines, from the down-home Southern classics to delicious Asian dishes, Mexican favorites, hearty Italian meals, and many others. The book will also include cooking tips from Chef Devin, weight loss advice from the contestants and trainers, and an overview of the Biggest Loser food plan.
The Biggest Loser Flavors of the World Cookbook will show readers how to expand their culinary horizons—without expanding their waistlines!”
