The best-selling weight-loss series that ranks readers' favorite restaurant fare now empowers readers to lose weight with recipes for satisfying meals made at home.Studies show that when people eat out they consume hundreds more calories than they would if they ate at home. So it stands to reason that cooking and eating more meals at home is one of the easiest and most effective strategies to lose belly fat. That's why the authors who have helped millions order smarter at restaurants now extend their life-altering advice to America's kitchens. Cook This, Not That! Skinny Comfort Foods is not a typical cookbook. While it has recipes and ingredients lists, it delivers much more - an intelligent (and tasty) strategy for controlling the number of calories readers consume. By starting with the best ingredients and the right plan, cooks of any skill level can create delicious meals that actually help them burn more body fat. Best of all, these recipes produce traditional comfort foods like macaroni and cheese, juicy burgers, pizzas, grilled cheese sandwiches - even chocolate chip cookies. Here's the logic: if these foods satisfy their hunger and taste buds, readers will be far less likely to rush for a bag of chips or tub of ice cream two hours after dinner. Cook This, Not That! books have reintroduced hundreds of thousands of people to the joy of cooking by making meal preparation fast and easy and by showing them that they can achieve restaurant tastes right in their own kitchens for a lot less money and much fewer calories.
