List of Ingredients
There are no ingredients as this is a cookbook and not a weight loss product.
The Biggest Loser Cookbook is full of smart marketing. There are plenty of healthy cookbooks out there, but this one uses participants on the show and information about them to make this specific cookbook more desirable than others. In addition to the information on the contestants, there is information on the food pyramid, serving size and portion control. There are preparation tips to help those who are just getting started with cooking.
The recipes are grouped by meal type, difficulty level, and ingredients. This makes the book very easy to navigate so people can find simple recipes with an ingredient list of things they have on hand so as to avoid a long shopping trip.
The recipes feature all sorts of ingredients that are inexpensive and easy to find. This makes it marketable to many people because many cookbooks are full of exotic, expensive ingredients. While those recipes may be desirable, they will never be prepared because they are typically not attainable.
- Plenty of healthy, easy to prepare recipe options.
