We also know that sometimes it can be hard to find the inspiration to put together a delicious, filling meal which won't break the calorie bank.

None of us want to eat the same dishes day in and day out , and we certainly don't want weird, hard to get hold of ingredients or faffy, chef inspired processes which involve you hanging from the ceiling with an egg whisk!

Easy to make, real food for every day

With our Fad Free Recipes you'll just find simple, low calorie, easy to make, real food for every day – whether you're cooking for one, for a family or for a dinner party.

Inside our handy book, you'll find a selection of filling favourites and recipes from around the world that contain normal, everyday ingredients readily available from your supermarket.

Plus, to make sure that you don't feel like you're “on a diet”, there's a selection of tasty desserts and a handy list of calorie counted snacks for when you fancy a treat.

All recipes are listed with calories, protein, carbohydrates, sugars, fats, saturated fats, fibre and fruit and veg portions per serving.

It's a great selection of recipes… [my Husband] and I made the tiramisu on Saturday night (It's his favourite dessert) and it was impossible to tell that it was a “weight-loss-friendly” version… definitely the only version we're going to make in future… For him to give the WLR-approved version such a hearty thumbs up was a very good thing indeed.”

So go on, have a go and see just how simple it is to lose weight with our fad free (and faff free) recipes.

Inside you'll find great calorie counted recipes, including:

Indulgent Cheeseburger and Homemade Chips

Who would have thought you could have a full on melting cheeseburger with chips for less than 500 calories?! These burgers are also great cooked on the BBQ, and you can experiment with putting different herbs and spices into the burger mixture – a WLR favourite is chopped fresh chilli.

Chicken with Creamy Garlic Mushrooms  Ready in 20 minutes

A really quick dish for those nights when you just want to get something on a plate but don't want to compromise on enjoyment.

Lime Crusted Fish with Roast Potato Chips

A fantastic alternative to a greasy take away portion of fish and chips with fresh, zingy flavours for less than 500 calories.

Moroccan Spiced Lamb  All your 5-a-day in one serving!

A longer cooking time really reaps rewards with this rich and interesting Eastern inspired lamb dish.

Fillet Steak with Redcurrant Sauce and Dijon Mash

Sometimes you just can't beat a good bit of steak!


A true classic dish, the rich coffee flavour of Tiramisu is best served chilled, a truly indulgent dessert.

“I think it's a really good cookbook – simple, straightforward, with plenty of choice but nothing overly complicated or time consuming. It should be on the kitchen shelf of everyone who has a busy life and waistline they want to reduce or keep slender.”

 proper portions of yummy-ness!

by Catherine

these recipes are full of taste and great flavours. I've found them easy to make and also unlike some 'diet' recipes they are a proper size meal that leaves you satisfied. I can recommend this book :-)

 Exactly what it says in the title

by Miss Hardbroom

What they claim is exactly what you get - simple, fad free recipes that are quick and easy to prepare but also tasty, healthy and calorie counted. I like the ringbinding style too, much easier to use when cooking.

 Good Recipes
