    I bought this book to help me with my hcg diet protocol. I wanted recipes to make my endeavor a more enjoyabe one, with meals that would be tasty and satisfying. This is not what you’ll get with this book.

    First off, the book is in very LARGE print, I think to help add pages to the book itself. And to aid in adding pages, one page is devoted to a vegetable, fruit, spice, recipe, etc., (get what I mean?)

    Up to page 73, a page is devoted to telling of a fruit or vegetable, I’m serious, unbelievable!

    The actual recipes start on PAGE 74! Page 74 for example is: STEAK. The recipe: Steak, Kosher Salt, and Freshly ground Black Pepper. That’s it! The recipes are also mixing vegetables which is not allowed on the protocol.

    I don’t want to bother you with more, but trust me, avoid buying this book.

    I just received this cookbook and am already disappointed. The recipes are obviously for more than one portion but do not tell you how many portions they are for. Its up to you to figure it out. The recipes also do not include calories per serving or any nutritional information or much protein/fruits/veggies are utilized in each recipe. Since portions is an important part of the HCG Diet, I am surprised that this HCG Diet Cookbook overlooked this crucial information.

    Very disappointed. No recipes until page 74! The rest is general descriptions about different meats, vegetable, and spices. possibly good for someone who has never been in a kitchen. As the previous poster wrote, the recipes are not measured out – they are meant to serve several different people. While I am trying to make this diet as painless as can be, I do not want my family to have to eat this way! It would be ok if they were measured into 2 portions so that you could either share or save for a later meal. I will probably not use this book at all.

    I received my cookbook two weeks ago and it has made the HCG diet SO much more manageable. My friends and I who are all doing HCG got together for a “cooking party” and made 10 of the recipes. The Bangladesh Beef Curry is to die for, the Spinach and Chard Meatloaf is so good I would serve it at a dinner party, also loved the unique flavor of the Chicken Apple Chard. YUM!

    The recipes are easy and the print is big which is NICE. As far as serving sizes and how to count the dishes in the HCG program, I just measured out the 100 grams of meat (or a little less because it’s the cooked weight) after cooking. If the recipe called for a lot of veggies in the dish I just estimated the calories (just use common sense and overestimate if unsure).

    Let’s be honest…you’ve got to do this plan for either 23 or 43 days so you’ve got to learn to eyeball things (along with weighing of course). I’ve been eating from this cookbook for 13 days and am down 10.5 pounds so far!

    If you are tired of trying to figure out ways to spice up chicken, shrimp, beef, to make it palatable you NEED this cookbook!
