GIVEAWAY ENDED
NOW EAT THIS
100 QUICK CALORIE CUTS:
AT HOME and ON-THE-GO
BY ROCCO DISPIRITO

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First there was Now Eat This! Then there was the Now Eat This! Diet. Now, there's the ultimate companion book to help readers lose weight and keep it off: NOW EAT THIS! QUICK CALORIE SOLUTIONS.

In this book, Rocco DiSpirito explains what he does to reduce the calories in recipes without compromising flavor-the tricks of the trade behind the low-calorie recipes he develops. He shows readers how to remove 100 calories from any dish, any time, offering tips on various substitutions so that readers can learn to adapt recipes themselves to reduce calories. He even shows you how to reduce the caloric content of your favorite restaurant foods; for example, omitting cheese from your Double Whopper or ordering skim milk with only one squirt of flavoring in your Starbucks coffee.

NOW EAT THIS! QUICK CALORIE SOLUTIONS is the perfect complement to the Now Eat This! Diet and cookbook, and also includes calorie saving shopping and cooking tips.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rocco DiSpirito entered the Culinary Institute of America at the age of sixteen, and at eighteen began working with legendary chefs worldwide. The James Beard award-winning chef opened the 3-star Union Pacific in New York City, where he established his culinary credentials. He was named Food & Wine's Best New Chef and—as the first chef to grace its cover—was called 'America's Most Exciting Young Chef' by Gourmet. DiSpirito starred in the NBC hit reality series The Restaurant, and the A&E series Rocco Gets Real. 

MY THOUGHTS/REVIEW:
Rocco DiSpirito’s NOW EAT THIS!: 100 QUICK CALORIE CUTS: AT HOME and ON THE GO is a small “flip book” that you can easily keep in your purse or pocket. My first thought was how hard would it be to have Rocco with me all the time? Not too bad! Motivation for me for sure. However, not what readers want to know so let me tell you that the book is exactly what the title suggests. NOW EAT THIS! 100 QUICK CALORIE CUTS: AT HOME and ON THE GO includes tips on cutting a little here and there, common sense things we often forget, and a simple meal plan to follow. It also includes tips for eating out which always helps with our busy lifestyles these days. Don’t look for recipes here as there aren’t any. Those would be found in Rocco’s other cookbooks

I think the book is especially good for people who are not familiar with calorie counting and basics of nutrition. I know my husband didn’t understand why lima beans and corn aren’t the best vegetable to eat on a diet but he is learning. This book gives you great ideas on what kinds of foods you can swap in order to still eat a delicious meal and yet cut some calories. Those few calories per meal can really add up. There are also ideas on the kinds of food that help to boost your metabolism and I know personally, that is something I really needed to learn about especially as I got older!

Probably the only complaint I would have with the book is that many of the tips are just common sense so seemed unnecessary to me. An example is that in order to cut calories when eating out, don’t order regular soda and skip dessert. I can’t believe that people need to be told that but then again, perhaps some do, or some of us just need the reminder. I think most people will find the grocery shopping tips to be helpful and healthy. The 14-day fast track meal plan Rocco provides is made easy to use by giving a shopping list so you would know what to buy to follow it. The size of the book makes this a convenient way to help implement these easy tips. The unique “flip book” design is clever as one side of the book is about eating out and “on the go“, and then you just turn it over and the other side is about what you can do “at home“. With over 100 tips, I am sure everyone will find new things to help get started, or keep them motivated, by using Rocco’s NOW EAT THIS! 100 QUICK CALORIE CUTS: AT HOME and ON THE GO.

I like the idea of tips on how to tweek the calories out of what you eat. It took me a while to understand that I was eating the wrong kind of yogurt for a pre-diabetic. But now I can say that I love Greek style yogurt besides being better for me is even tastier!

P.S. I can understand why your husband loves corn because I am from Indiana. But, lima beans? Why?

Just the fact it's from Rocco makes me want it! I've been watching him on GMA and I really want to try out his tips. I like how you said that some of his tips are common sense, but sometimes, when life gets crazy, you need those little reminders. I also like how you noted there's a shopping list of the ingredients you need - I hate having to figure that out myself!
