    The Right Recipe Book

    So I know its hard losing weight. I was 305lbs and im only down to 285, but 20lbs is 20lbs. I found it to be fairly easy with this book "Eat Well, Lose Weight" From Better Homes and Gardens. They have over 500 recipes ranging from breakfast, snacks and even deserts that are yummy. I will say this, if your new to dieting it can be expensive starting off. Especially if your used to eating the $1.50 boxed meals, but once you get going and have all the right spices and ingredients built up, this book will amaze you. Its difficult during the day to reach 1500 calories for me sometimes. Definitely something to take a look at.
