Instant Loss Cookbook: Cook Your Way to a Healthy Weight with 125 Recipes for Your Instant Pot®, Pr

We rated this book:


The title of this cookbook, Instant Loss Cookbook, is an unfortunate choice. Anyone who has ever been on a diet knows that instant loss is a gross exaggeration. In fact, author Brittany Williams states early in the book that she promotes a “healthy lifestyle, not a diet.” Her lengthy introduction describes her own diet story and how she lost one-hundred-and-twenty-five pounds over the course of a year. Williams explains why she deliberately left out nutritional information. Yet most dieters want to know at least the calorie contents of their meals. The book continues with a thirty-day meal plan using Williams’ recipes. Too bad she didn’t add page numbers with the meals so cooks could have that information right away. Most recipes use a digital pressure cooker, though if yours is traditional, recipes will work fine. Recipe ingredients are readily available, and instructions are easy to follow. These are somewhat time-consuming recipes, and the meal plan assumes you prepare lunches at home. Many recipe titles are misleading, like one-minute chicken soup, four-minute cauliflower soup, and so on, where prep time will be well over fifteen minutes and the pressure cooker will take another twenty minutes. She often exaggerates with her term “quick and easy.”
