GREENDALE, Wis., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Taste of Home, the #1 cooking magazine in the country, introduces The Comfort Food Diet Cookbook, featuring America's favorite comfort recipes with only a fraction of the fat and calories. The Comfort Food Diet Cookbook, on shelves December 31, 2009, is a sensible approach to eating, cooking, and living that helps readers shed pounds without feeling deprived. Enjoy pizza, lasagna, mac-n-cheese, pulled pork and even cheesecake while loosing weight. The perfect diet for those who love hearty, satisfying foods, the cookbook is packed with low-calorie versions of the mouthwatering staples that families enjoy most. Each recipe has been tested by a registered dietician to ensure the nutritional value fits into a healthy lifestyle. The new Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook features tips for a balanced diet, portion-size chart, six-week meal plan, 80 "free foods" and worksheets to plan meals ahead. To motivate and inspire a healthier lifestyle, real success stories of individuals who have dropped weight with the Comfort Food Diet are included. With 433 recipes of the foods most craved, the Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook is the diet that doesn't feel like a diet.
"There is an overwhelming number of diets that are extremes of what people should be eating," says Peggy Woodward, a Taste of Home Food Editor and Registered Dietitian. "These diets are unsuccessful because of all the restrictions that leave dieters feeling deprived. The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook offers an alternative to extreme diets and incorporates lighter versions of favorite foods for long-term success."
To ensure weight loss success, The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook has tips on exercise, portion control, ordering healthy when dining out, and a removable clip-and-keep calorie guide for the person the go. Also included is access to exclusive web content at www.ComfortFoodDietCookbook.com, the online community featuring additional recipes, success stories, and helpful tools. As a special bonus, a dietitian is available online to provide support, answer questions, and offer suggestions. The Comfort Food Diet Cookbook takes the guesswork out of losing weight and helps you keep it off.
"Taste of Home has always provided easy-to-make, budget-friendly recipes that use everyday ingredients," said Catherine Cassidy, Editor-in-Chief of Taste of Home. "The Comfort Food Diet Cookbook is another way that Taste of Home is meeting the needs of today's families, by offering healthy meals that are as satisfying as they are good for you."
The Taste of Home Comfort Food Diet Cookbook focuses on what people can eat, not what they have to give up. Each recipe is reviewed by a registered dietician and tested by the Taste of Home Test Kitchen to ensure it is healthy, affordable and successful each time it's prepared. Taste of Home reflects the caring and sharing that home cooks across America serve up every day. This new cookbook is a guide to healthy eating that teaches simple changes for weight loss success and maintaining your goal weight.
