Lisa is not a nutritionist, she's just hungry.
(Taken form her website: www.hungry-girl.com)My name is Lisa and I'm just an average female, struggling with the same food issues most females struggle with every day. I try the latest fad diets, chomp on new fat free foods & diet products, and yes, I too order everything on the side. I consider myself a foodologist…not because I have some kind of fancy degree, but because I am obsessed with food, how wonderful it is, and how much of it will make it impossible for me to fit into my pants. Food is my passion and it has been my lifelong obsession. I love food because food is delicious. My mantra, as many of my friends know, is "I'm hungry!" Because I obsess over food, I learn about it, read about it, research it, dream about it. Nothing gives me a thrill like discovering a new low cal snack or assembling a no fat pizza! Over the years my food obsession has caused me to accumulate approximately a zillion diet and food tips, and because I am not only hungry, but also very nice, I want to share them with you.
I've struggled with weight issues for most of my life, and aside from the occasional slice of molten chocolate cake, I finally have it under control. I've tried every diet under the sun. Yoyo-ing up and down twenty pounds has been the story of my life. Then, about three years ago I decided to change my way of eating and for a full year I gave up flour, bread, pasta and starches. I said bye-bye to dry carbs and hello to 14 glasses of water a day and dropped almost 30 lbs. (and three sizes). Now I basically follow the Weight Watchers point system and strive to keep my dry carb intake to a minimum. Of course, there are days that I simply can't stick to this plan and I shovel anything that's not nailed down into my mouth. It takes a lot of work, energy and effort to keep my weight down, but the pros (like cute pants!) definitely outweigh the cons (like flab!). Losing and maintaining weight is not a temporary change -- it's a lifestyle - but it doesn't mean that life gets less fun. I scour supermarkets, restaurants and more to fulfill the cravings of my former lifestyle with replacement choices, and I love every minute of it! From low calorie ice cream sundaes to low carb donuts, I am always at the forefront of the latest trends in food and dieting, living the Hungry Girl lifestyle and loving what I eat!

Mama (Mama is my mother-in-law) swore by these recipes. She said that she could stay on her Weight Watcher points and still eat yummy food and even have dessert. I thought, okayI I'm game! Let's give it a try.
After receiving this book from the publisher to review, I tried a few recipes, which were yummy and yes, I could stick to my Weight Watchers point using them! (On her website she includes the Point Value for each recipe!!!! I love that part!)
Though the recipes are not all packed with veggies, fruits and healthy foods... they can help you stick to your calorie goal y allowing you to hit that craving. If not used as an everyday thing, or by just taking some tips and tweaking them to your particular diet, this can be a big help.
My favorite Hungry Girl tips is using original flavored Fiber One cereal as breading for baked fried-chicken. My family couldn't tell the difference because I used our normal seasonings but replaced cracker or bread crumbs with Fiber One cereal!
