The Most Decadent Diet Ever!: The Cookbook That Reveals the Secrets to Cooking Your Favorites in a Healthier Way

Devin Alexander, Author, Kate Geagan, Foreword by Broadway Books $19.95 (230p) ISBN 978-0-7679-2881-6
In her latest health-minded cookbook, chef and author Alexander (Fast-Food Fix, The Biggest Loser Cookbook) lets dieters have their Godiva Brownie Sundaes and eat them too. Eschewing charts, graphs and calorie counters, Alexander uses a simple shorthand (""decadent disks,"" each equal to 100 calories) that makes it easy for dieters to plan meals from more than a hundred recipes (including entrees for all times of the day, sides and snacks-both savory and sweet). Her rich version of a crustless breakfast quiche (Devin's Eggs), for example, uses fat free milk, egg substitute, lean ham and lowfat cheese to keep servings down to 2 disks each. These and other caloric corner-cutting ingredients make up the bulk of Alexander's pantry, enabling her to indulge guilt-free in everything from cheesecake and fettucine alfredo to a chicken-and-(light)-brie sandwich. With an emphasis on comfort food like sticky buns, barbecue bacon cheeseburgers and fries, deprived dieters will find Alexander's plan a breath of fresh air.
