  1. The best heart healthy cookbook you’ll ever find! Due to a recent heart condition my doctor told me to lose weight. I wanted to go on a low-fat, low-cholesterol, low-sugar and low-sodium diet, but I thought by doing all of that I would never eat good foods again. Boy, was I wrong! I purchased the American Heart Association’s Low-Fat, Low-Cholesterol Cookbook and have never tasted better foods. I have not found a recipe that I don’t like! Using these recipes and an excellent walking program I have lost almost 50 pounds between February and August 1999. Several of my favorite recipes from this cookbook are: Crispy Oven-Fried Chicken, Chili, Vegetable-Beef Burgers, Spicy Baked Pork Chops and (my favorite) Meat Loaf with Roasted Vegetables (mmmmmmm). My heart is now as strong as ever and I owe it all to my walking program and recipes from the American Heart Association’s Low-Fat, Low Cholesterol Cookbook. One other note, two months after I strated using these recipes, my doctor took me off cholesterol medication.

  2. Easy & delicious recipes for busy people This book has helped enormously in my new regimen of low-fat, low-sodium & low-cholesterol. It uses ingredients that are common in the kitchen – no exotic things you need to shop all over for. Definitely a great idea for someone starting out to learn to cook healthy, and tasty, food for the entire family!

  3. Eating Healthy Doe Not Have to Taste Bad After a battle with a higher cholesterol reading than what I am accustommed to, I thought I would get more consious of what I would be eating. I bought this cookbook recently and tried a couple of the recipes. When my 11 year old sat down and tasted the Asian Chicken and stuffed mushrooms, his first comment after his first bite was “Wow…this is great!” I concurred.This whole meal gave us less than 6 grams of fat and under 100 millgrams of cholesterol.This I can live with!
