    This book has come in so handy since we have had to make lifestyle changes due to high cholesterol. The best thing about this book is that it uses pretty basic ingredients that you can find at any grocery store. Other books I have with low cholesterol recipes had odd ingredients that I just won’t keep in stock normally. The recipes offered by the AHA cookbook identify with “real”, everyday people making the lifestyle transition much easier than I originally thought. The final outcome: Palate tantalizing dishes appropriate for the whole family.

    My husband was put on a low-fat diet so I picked up this cookbook because I liked that it was by the American Heart Association. Every recipe I’ve made has been delicious! (with the exception of one dessert which was just okay, but low-fat desserts are tough) I will say though, that this cookbook can’t be called quick and easy. As someone else mentioned, I have to plan in advance so I can pick up all the ingredients at the grocery store. You also have to make sure to allow plenty of time for cooking the meal. Nothing has been very fast, although it’s nothing overly complicated for this basic chef.

    All-in-all, I would recommend this cookbook to anyone trying to eat healthier as I think it’s an easier transition when the food tastes good, and these recipes definitely do!

    I first bought an earlier edition of this book a few years ago when I decided it was time to lose weight. It made cooking for a family of 4 super easy. The meals are delicious and healthy…although there are a few recipes that didnt fit my taste.

    At first, you do end up spending more at the grocery store to buy all the new spices & a few new ingredients, but eventually, the cost tapers down. Our weekly grocery bill averaged around $150.00 for a family of 4 adults which included 3 meals a day with snacks. So, I have to say that it is pretty cost efficient as well.

    By cooking directly from this book, eating about 1600 claories a day, and walking on the treadmill 20 minutes a day, I went from 286 lbs down to about 215 lbs in 3 months. At that point, I got a gym membership and cut back on my calories just a little bit more (down to 1500). I am now 138 lbs and have been able to keep it off so far.

    This book definately gave me a good kickstart to to getting my weight down (and giving my heart a break). I would recommend it in a heartbeat!!!
