Cooking for a Clyde
Okay folks, need a few suggestions here.

I need some advice on what sports nutrition/weight loss cookbooks to get.
I already have a few that explain about nutrition, but are very light on the recipes. And I'm very handicapped when it comes to forming recipes.

I had thought about posting this in the Nutrition forum, but wanted responses from my fellow Clydes/Athenas for obvious reasons.

What do y'all use?

Try and cook everything, No prepackaged foods and keep your protein carb ratio 1 to 1. Get a ohmeric test done to see how many cal your body consumes at a resting state in a day. approx 500 less cal per day equals 1 lb per week. 1 pound of fat equals 3500 cal.

Biggest loser cookbooks. Easy to follow recipes and the food tastes great. Just remember the key is portion control!

I've had good luck with - it's 100% free and the reviews can help you zero in on the best recipes. There are many health-conscious recipes available, and it's easy to make substitutions when needed for others, like ground turkey for ground beef, vegetable patties (GardenBurger, etc.) as meat stand-ins, using unsweetened applesauce instead of cooking oil (it works very well for many recipes), and other popular tricks.

The Mayo Clinic also has a large number of recipes you may want to take a look at:

My best suggestion for weight loss is Weight Watchers. I have lost 50 pounds so far by doing weight watchers, and I am only 30 pounds away from my goal of 190 lbs and I know I will be damn close by the eend of summer.
