    A lot of the complaining about this book is regarding the ingredients, such as the tofu noodles. Do people not know you can replace ingredients? Is this not something that should be obvious? Yes, this may add calories to the dish, but for crying out loud, people. If you don't want soy crumbles, replace it with ground turkey, and move the fuck on. Don't want tofu noodles? There's an entire pasta aisle in every supermarket in town. Really, I promise. Go look.

While it's probably healthier (and more varied) than frozen entrees, the food often tastes pre-fab. If you're really craving chocolate, than a double choclate vita-mix muffin top might not really calm the craving, you know? This book features a lot of previously published recipes, though most of them have been re-tooled. She does provide incredibly thorough nutrition information, even for recipe variations. The best chapters for me here are the packets and crock pot recipes. These feature mostly regular food, and you could serve them to people and they'd never know they were eating light. The cocktail chapter is also great, especially around the holidays. Again, those recipes generally didn't contain too many 'fake' ingredients (or at least the ones I've made) and it can help to take some of the guilt out of parties. If you like HG, this is the only book of hers that you need - everything is in here. If you're on the fence about her philosophy and way of eating, I'd take one of the smaller books out of the library first. I'm glad I read this for the few recipes I'll use, but I'm also glad I didn't buy it because it's got over 650 recipes and I don't think I'll use more than 20.

    This book has not only a lot of great, easy-to-follow, recipes, but recommendations for swapping out ingredients, best combinations of ingredients, etc. There are also helpful tips and tricks for different forms of cooking, i.e. foil packets, etc. Also, the book provides important information such as number of calories, and other nutritional information. I found a lot of cool recipes that I ended up xeroxing as this book belongs to my local public library. Excellent! < This book has not only a lot of great, easy-to-follow, recipes, but recommendations for swapping out ingredients, best combinations of ingredients, etc. There are also helpful tips and tricks for different forms of cooking, i.e. foil packets, etc. Also, the book provides important information such as number of calories, and other nutritional information.

    I got this book from the library and I think there are some recipes that I will try. They are simple and I think the thing she strives for - filling.

    All Hail Hungry Girl! This is one of my must-have cookbooks. Hungry Girl's recipes are so fun, innovative, and unique that no other book comes even close to her recipes. This isn't one of those cookbooks that you'll only utilize one or two recipes from and then sentence it to life at the back of the kitchen cabnet- this is the one that you'll flip through just for fun, the one that you'll always reference to, the one whose recipes you'll give to all of your friends.

This isn't one of those cookbooks that you'll only utilize one or two recipes from and then sentence it to life at the back of the kitchen cabnet- this is the one that you'll flip through just for fun, the one that you'll always reference to, the one whose recipes you'll give to all of your friends. It truly is that unique. This book has completely changed my approach to cooking and food. Shirataki noodles?! Bran flakes?! In my kitchen? Never. But here I am, these two ingredients being an almost permanent staple in my kitchen. Before reading Hungry Girl, I never even considered using bran flakes as a much healthier alternative to flour coating. I didnt even know what the heck a shiritaki was. This book touches base from breakfast to dessert and everything inbetween. The premise of Hungry Girl books is that you CAN have your cake and eat it too- all you have to do is swap out a few of the high-calorie ingredients for their lower calorie (and often healthier) dupes. Now regarding the shiritaki noodles- they really are hit and miss, in terms of avaiability and personal preference. I had to call around to several grocery stores in order to locate them, but when I finally found them I was pleasantly surprised. Now, keep in mind that I am a food snob. I hate weird textures- no your weird vegetarian burgers don't taste like meat, no this almond floaur is not the same as wheat flour, no matter how hard you try to convince me otherwise. Iwas worried that the noodles would be disgustingly soft aince they are packaged in water, but after trying the spaghetti shaped substitute, I found them strange but pleasant- almost a bit rubbery. To me these are an absolute MUST HAVE in thr low calorie/low carb kitchen. Do they taste exactly like pasta? No, the texture is much different. They fit easily into any pasta or noodle dish, and provide a lovely low-carb way to fill you up and satisfy those cravings for pasta. All in all, this is a fantastic cookbook to have on hand for the more adventurous in the kitchen. I would not recommend this book for your meat and potatoe chef.

    I borrowed this book from the library and it went back almost immediately. Why? Because after I took a close look at the recipes I realized that while yes, they were low cal they weren't necessarily healthy. My main complaint is the amount of sodium that the recipes have. Some recipes had a sodium level close to the maximum daily portion (if using the 1,300 mg guideline) in ONE portion. Never mind that most people would probably eat two portions.

If you are concerned about sodium and fat levels, not just calories, this cookbook should be avoided.

    There were a lot more meals in this book than I thought there were going to be that I would even consider trying. Lisa tries to use the everyday things that would be found in a cooks pantry, or someone that is trying to eat healthy or healthier and need something quick. Some of the meals only take 30 minutes to cook and are simple to assemble. Can't wait to start cooking and experimenting with new flavors and a different way of looking at healthy eating.

    I had a friend who said that this was "the best cookbook ever!" I gave this a chance and I think my expectations where too high. 90% pasta section is those tofu noodles. I'm allergic to tofu so sadly not much of a help :( Plus they are very expensive in my area. The pizza section was all on tortillas! Not the first thing when I think of pizza but I guess I shouldn't be picky when I cutting out calories.

    The food is very low cal and quite tasty, but the one problem I have is the use of so much processed ingredients. Now, that is just my personal way of healthy eating and not for everyone, so please understand. The recipes are very tasty and satisfying, and I do refer back to this book if I need to quickly get back on track, but it's not my usual way of eating.

    This is THE best cookbook EVER if you are watching your weight. It is especially good for those of us following Weight Watchers. WW points can be found for all the recipes on the Hungry Girl website. The recipes are delicious, and most are very simple, quick and easy to fix. I would recommend this to anyone!

    I like the ideas and the style but Lisa Lillien uses a ton of chemically based faux foods. In an effort to be healthy I think we need to focus a little more on fresh. There are also many many variations of the same dish (egg mugs for example). There are some good recipes, however, and easy ones.

    Simple, low calorie, and quick recipes. I have almost everything already in my pantry, fridge, and freezer. As a lap-bander, I can easily eat the majority of the recipes (in small portions)and don't have to worry about "cheating." I've been doing egg mug variations for a while, but now I have so many more choices! Many of the recipes can be made ahead of time. I can't wait to start cooking!

    I have tried quite a few of these recipes and have really liked every one. Some of them I won't ever end up trying because I already don't like the ingredients but I am hopeful for more yummy recipes to try.

    Could use some tweaking by using more whole grains (which are easily substituted in), but wins brownie points with me because of each recipe containing a nutrition analysis. Something I need to keep track of.

    I actually really do like Hungry Girl and I read her blog, but when it comes to her recipe books I just don't know. I get really enthusiastic, but at the same time I don't really care for many of her solutions to make things healthier.

    I think I am not the target audience for this cookbook. I prefer a healthy diet that doesn't use all the artificial foods for dieters. If you like fake eggs, fake cheese, fake sugar, then this is the book for you.

    I love Hungry Girl's ideas and recipes (especially for breakfast and lunch) but I found this book had a lot of repeats from previous books. I loved that it had lots of food variety though, including Chinese and Mexican.

    There are some great, guilt-free, but still tasty recipes in the this book that are not too complicated to prepare. I highly recommend it for the mom who does not have a lot of time but wants to prepare healthy meals for her family.

    A lot of packaged foods used in this which is off-putting, especially when several just don't seem to be available where I live.

    This book is FULL of healthy recipes and substitutions to recipes you already love! A lot of the recipes are broken down to one or two servings - instead of 6! Super simple and easy to make!
