    What the hell is this supposed to be? I saw DiSpirito on TV and thought, maybe I'll get one of his cookbooks, see what it's about. The pictures of the food are all pink, and overexposed photos. Nutrition is listed first as what it is, but right under in the amount of calories you'll burn while you prepare it. It's just kind of weird. Very off-putting. What the hell is this supposed to be?

    提高听书速度的好处开始显现了:一本原本3个小时左右的有声书,我花了1.25小时听完。基本就是昨天今天做饭洗碗的时间。提升了阅读速度后的心态,是可以有功夫读一些不是超一流水平,但也有很多亮点的“普通书”了。 这本书是关于饮食健康的,书名就很直接:“把胖屁股用健康饮食吃不见”,作者就是封面这个帅哥,意大利人。几个有意思的观点: 1. 在厨房做饭时有意识地增加运动量,可以抵消很多卡路里。这一点解释了厨师大多不胖的道理:都是站着一整天。 2. 不要尝菜过量,不然很容易摄入过量卡路里,这一点解释了为什么很多国内厨师都胖…… 3. 学会看食物的配方表。 4. 减少奶制品摄入,因为会影响荷尔蒙。用其他方式补钙。 5. 多吃有机的本地的全食,去农场买菜。 6. 吃gluten-free的食物。 另外他有一个14天的低卡菜谱集合,说是可以确保你减掉14磅。不过我一听洋人的菜谱和烹饪就神游,这部分算是略过。

    What a disappointment! I really do like it when a diet/cookbook has something unique about it that separates it from the thousands of others in the genre. If you don't have magnificent pictures, for example, you really need to have an interesting theme that will catch the attention of your readers.

I really do like it when a diet/cookbook has something unique about it that separates it from the thousands of others in the genre. If you don't have magnificent pictures, for example, you really need to have an interesting theme that will catch the attention of your readers. On the surface, it seems that Rocco DiSpirito may have found a special little twist for his "Cook Your Butt Off" book -- while promoting a natural, organic, low-fat, gluten-free diet, he asserts that his recipes will actually burn calories in preparation. Thus, we as readers may be able to enjoy these recipes with a little less guilt, having burned off a percentage of the calories before even partaking of the food! Now, to be honest, the whole thing just sounds sketchy. Who is going to actually burn a noticeable amount of calories smashing a rice cake? Or, as DiSpirito suggests at one point, how many readers will actually be able to walk to the grocery store and lug the bags back on foot? Probably not enough to make this gimmick worthwhile. As an aside, why so many artificial sweeteners? Aren't the natural ingredients -- especially the fruit -- sweet enough? And, what's the fascination with monk in the raw? I'll still look into other books by Rocco DiSpirito in the future, I think -- but, with so many options on the market today, Cook Your Butt Off really isn't worth a second glance.

    Surprised to see no one mentioned psyllium husks (nature's laxative) as a grain stand-in for many of these recipes. You aren't necessarily cooking your butt off here, you're pooping your guts out instead. Another definitive but unsavory (and unsafe) way to lose weight.

    This book was OK For me. I cook at home anyway and that is half the battle won. However, i think making things easy such as using 'normal'fresh produce and generally staying away from the whites; sugar, flour and rice would be more accessible to many people watching the scale. Reading labels should also be a habit. In summary: CONS 1) Mostly caters to western diets 2) Images in pink? why? - cost saving? 3) Pretty high carb count mostly more than 150g of carbs a day PROS 1) Brings awareness to how proc This book was OK For me.

Dog eared a few recipes that do not read too fantastic. Minding tha alkaline versus acidic list. First time reading Rocco and might read another before passing judgement. My take away/ new things i learn and will put to use immediately: To include the following into my grocery cart the next time i shop. 1) Mushrooms 2) lean turkey 3) palm sugar 4) low GI products 5) yogurt ..basically more of the alkaline stuff.

    I was expecting an every-day, healthy cookbook and was disappointed to find an extreme 14-day-weight-loss guide. Rocco's plan is to: #1--Turn your kitchen into a gym. Prepare your own food and burn calories in its preparation. #2--Choose foods that burn fat naturally. This means easing off or eliminating meat, dairy, gluten and other foods from your diet. #3--Avoid impure, fat-promoting foods. In other words, buy organic and local. I believe in moderation.

Eliminating gluten and dairy and sugar is not something I'm willing to do, even for just 14 days. Adding to my disappointment, I was unable to find one appealing recipe and not just because all the food photos are in pink. This cookbook will appeal to some crazy food strict-tarians or those with actual dietary limitations--but unfortunately, it will be avoiding my recipe shelf and finding a new home. I received this book for free as part of Goodreads First Reads. Thank you very much!

    This book has two shaky diet premises that are among the current diet fads; gluten free and acid/alkaline balance. Since he also still recommends calorie counting I can give a pass on this. He has several ingredients that are a bit shady, for example, the new monk fruit sugar which is heavily processed and xanthan gum which may be unsafe for kids. Some of the other novel ingredients may be worth a look. Another aspect to this book that's a bit weird is the fitbit stuff and the calorie counting on This book has two shaky diet premises that are among the current diet fads; gluten free and acid/alkaline balance.

Another aspect to this book that's a bit weird is the fitbit stuff and the calorie counting on the food prep work, since you should be making your own meals anyway, you can safely ignore it unless you're a gadget addict. There are some interesting Asian fusion recipes which I may try. In the past, any recipes of his I have used worked out but they were American or Italian. I will hold off rating the book until then. After a closer look I didn't see any recipes that I didn't already have or wasn't interested in them. Between the so-so recipes and the skatey diet advice this book leaves a bad taste for me.

    The book has great tips for a healthier lifestyle, but the pics of the food pages just didn't do it for me. Everything was an odd shade of pepto pink which was not appetizing. The book is broken into well informed sections and led you to the recipes in a cohesive manner. When you get to the recipes it starts with drinks and moves through breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, salads and desserts.

When you get to the recipes it starts with drinks and moves through breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, salads and desserts. Fortunately, I stuck with the recipes as I read through them as I thought that all the drinks were a hideous pink color then I realized all the food pictures were in the same awful color scheme. So does that mean that the food is so unappetizing looking that they had to hide it behind a pink colorblock? I'm going to give a few recipes a whirl, but in general I just don't think this is the healthy cookbook for me. Good luck to you and maybe you'll find more inspiration than I did.

    First let me say, I love Rocco! I have several of his books and love them all!. That being said, his new book is a total miss! I just don't really care for it. All the suggestions about how many calories you can burn just by cooking seems a little disjointed and quite frankly quite hokey. I also found that most of recipes just do not seem all that appealing. And the pictures drove me crazy, different shades of pink, very harsh on the eyes. First let me say, I love Rocco!

    I won this book in one of the give aways on Goodreads. I think the idea is great and it is written so it's easy to read. I haven't tried any of the recipes. Most of them require special ingredients or ingredients that cost more than my budget can allow. If you have the resources, I would imagine this book would have many great recipes and give you great results. I have a family of five to feed on a limited budget so it didn't work so great for me. I love this chef however and hope it does well. I won this book in one of the give aways on Goodreads. I think the idea is great and it is written so it's easy to read.

    Rocco DiSpirito is amazing! His latest book, Cook Your Butt Off! is just another testament of his brilliance. He is smart, sexy and funny.....and he can cook. Not only can he cook, he can cook foods that are actually good for you. I have recently gone gluten free/partial paleo. I found this book was full of fantastic recipes and tips and I have suggested it to others who are trying to go gluten free.

    WTF!!!!! I guess that I should have read reviews for this book before I got it. I got partially through it and quit. My biggest problem with this book was the pictures. I am big on a cook book having pictures but HELLO!!!! Real color!!! What is with the pink and red pictures? You could not tell what they were. For all I know it could have been brains. That's what it looked like. It overshadowed everything else. WTF!!!!! I guess that I should have read reviews for this book before I got it. I got partially through it and quit.

    Worst cookbook that I have looked at in a very long time. I am not a fan of Rocco for a variety of reasons. His cookbook is definitely a reflection of all the things I don't care for about him and his cooking. I couldn't find a recipe that I wanted to read in its entirety much less prepare. I read cookbooks like best selling novels and spend an enormous amount of time cooking. Don't waste your money on this book. There are far too many excellent cookbooks out there.

    I wouldn't call this a cookbook not a diet book...it's just bad. All of the pictures and much of the text is in red and difficult to read or see. Rocco claims that he wants you to eat local and naturally but many of the recipes include extracts and other non-good items. So glad I checked this book out from my local library. Rocco must have one high dollar publicist to sell so many books. I wouldn't call this a cookbook not a diet book...it's just bad.

    Rocco is a delight to read, you can almost see him dancing in the kitchen while whisking cream. My mother, who is trying to lose weight, and I tried a number of recipes and they are great. This approach makes sense and will be added to the shelves of Kitchigami Regional Libraries. Read through NetGalley.

    Easy to read and well organized on how to lose weight in 2 weeks. Some great recipes and charts to help you stay organized. Gives some good alternatives to your favorite fatty foods. I think it should be easy to incorporate into your daily routine.

    Not quite what I was expecting. Some great ideas on how to eliminate certain foods in your diet with options to replace. Could be difficult implementing this plan in a family if not everyone is on board with it.

    Why oh why oh why would you publish a cookbook with every photo of food a pale out of focus pink? Distracted me from the recipes and overall message of the book. Many recipes also contain monk fruit extract, the "newest sweetener on the block." No thanks. Why oh why oh why would you publish a cookbook with every photo of food a pale out of focus pink?
