Like the recently revised Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook, this collection of updated classics supplements the new Weight Watchers 360 program. Emphasizing retro comfort foods like chicken cordon bleu, cheddar corn pudding, and Boston cream pie, the book aims to dispel notions that diet food can't be crave-worthy. Each recipe includes nutritional analysis and a "Points-Plus" value based on the amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, and fiber per serving. Using the secondary index, readers can easily choose recipes by points value. VERDICT The popular and highly rated Weight Watchers diet has undergone changes, so most libraries should update their collections. (c) Copyright 2013.
