    It appears to be a cookbook that uses REAL food and presents a balanced diet. No fads, just good food fixed in ways to provide good, enjoyable meals. This approach is the best as far as I am concerned. It makes it much easier to stick to a diet and maintain the weight once it is lost.
    Thanks for bring this book to my attention.
