Book of the Week/Free Press Book Review 3/27/12

As a perfect follow-up to The 17-Day Diet, Dr. Mike Moreno brings us The 17 Day Diet Cookbook: 80 All New Recipes for Healthy Weight Loss (Free Press, 2012).

The 17-Day Diet Cookbook breaks down recipes for each cycles of Dr. Mike’s revolutionary diet plan – Accelerate, Activate, Achieve, and Arrive – all designed to help drop pounds safely yet rapidly. Who knew that delightful dishes such as chicken tandoori, crab cakes, Mexican Chocolate Pudding, frozen yogurt, eggs with a snap of salsa, Dr. Mike’s very own power cookies (you heard right – cookies on a diet!), and one of my favorites, green tea applesauce, among other fantastic recipes, would be included in a diet cookbook?

Each recipe in The 17-Day Diet Cookbook was developed around foods on the original 17-Day Diet plan. Each section of the book contains recipes and 51 daily meal plans for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks for each stage

You don’t need to be a five-star chef or even have fancy preparation equipment and ingredients; most what is outlined in The 17-Day Diet Cookbook may already be in your kitchen. In addition, most of the recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, are low in fat, high in fiber, nutrition, and – most important – taste great and promote rapid weight loss!

The 17-Day Diet Cookbook is easy to read and follow, and a great cookbook to include in your kitchen’s collection, even if you don’t follow the 17-Day Diet plan on a regular basis.
