LOS ANGELES, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Do you want to have your cake and eat it, too? Lifetime Television announces Cook Yourself Thin, an all-new series that offers viewers the skills and the confidence to give their favorite indulgent meals a healthy makeover by cutting the calories and doubling the flavor! Culinary experts Harry Eastwood, Allison Fishman and Candice Kumai show guests how to lose their unwanted inches by replacing extreme dieting with clever cooking. The twenty-episode, half-hour series premieres in Spring 2009 on Lifetime Television.

ABOUT COOK YOURSELF THIN

Based on the hit, British series and popular cookbook, Cook Yourself Thin encourages women to lose weight by changing their eating habits. Each half-hour episode follows one guest as she learns simple ways to transform her favorite high calorie meals into delicious, healthier fare. Hosts Eastman, Fishman and Kumai use their sharp culinary know-how to tailor a specific menu for each participant. The meals are prepared step-by-step, comparing the calorie count of the original recipe to those of the Cook Yourself Thin version. The guest is then sent home with the ingredients, tools and tips necessary to make healthy changes in the kitchen. After six weeks of living the Cook Yourself Thin lifestyle, the hosts visit each participant at home to check on her progress.

Visitors to Mylifetime.com will be able to view full episodes of the series the day after they premiere on Lifetime Television. Additionally, site visitors will have access to recipes featured on the show, step-by-step cooking instructions and behind-the-scenes information about show participants -- including an inside look at the contents of their refrigerators. For each episode, one of the three hosts will record a video blog offering cooking tips and additional strategies to Cook Yourself Thin.

Cook Yourself Thin is produced by Tiger Aspect Productions for Lifetime Television. Emmy Award(R) winner Lauren Deen (Martha Stewart Living) and Christine Connor serve as co-executive producers.
