500 Delicious Recipes of 400 Calories...or less!

Whether you're on a weight loss plan already or looking to begin anew, 500 400-CALORIE RECIPES (Fair Winds Press, June 2011, $19.99 US/$21.99 CAN) by Dick Logue is your one-stop shop for healthy, deliciously comforting meals that won't bust your fitness goals, but rather boost you to them...and all just in time for summer vacation and lazy days on the beach!

For people looking to shed pounds and live more healthfully, eating meals in the 400-calorie range is your secret weapon to weight loss success. Not only do these meals fuel your energy, rev metabolism, and keep you feeling full longer, but they also help you stick to a daily caloric range of 1200 to 1600 total calories, which is ideal for tipping the scales in your favor.

The book works by expertly focusing on nutrient-dense, low-calorie ingredients that you can eat in abundance-such as leafy greens, artichokes, and berries-and combining them with smaller portions of equally filling foods like whole grains, beans, eggs, and poultry. Recipes include:

Corned Beef Hash Pie
Asparagus Omelet and Citrus Salad
Paris Sidewalk Cafe Quiche Lorraine
Pork and Apple Curry
Old World Smoked Sausage Stew
Bean and Guacamole Burgers
Shrimp Fried Rice
Stuffed Shells Florentine
Mexican Drunken Chicken
Carrot Cookies
Cappuccino Mousse
The result? Four hundred mega-satisfying meals that cover your every craving and desire, from wholesomely hearty breakfasts to decadent treats that won't break the (calorie) bank.

Start losing weight-by filling your plate with 500 400-CALORIE RECIPES!

"Why 400 Calories? The answer is simple, a 400-Calorie Meal is just what you need to lose weight, a meal that satisfies you and keeps your hunger at bay until your next 400-calorie meal, keeping you at only 1200-1600 calories per day. This is not something I created, it is based on the research of a number of doctors and nutritional experts." ― Dick Logue
