This is a great book for ideas on low-cal snacks. There's heavy reliance on Splenda, soy, and processed food, but for someone like me, it's easier to wean my way into cooking by using shortcuts. One of the things I like about these recipes is that they're mostly designed for one serving, which is unusual. It's also got recipes for parties, so it's not just a solo cookbook, though. Weight Watchers has worked in conjunction with the author for some of the recipes, so if you're familiar with their program (and focus on fiber) some of the food will be recognizable. I also like that it's got personality.

I'm looking forward to the "chocolate cream pie"--low cal pudding and whipped cream covered with crushed graham cracker. Quick, easy, and better for my belly than the alternative :)
