Overview Written for men by a real guy with a big appetite, the 175 easy-to-make recipes in this brawny collection feature man-sized portions that get 25 percent or less of their calories from fat.
Publishers Description From the author of the spectacularly successful Lean and Lovin' It, a brawny collection of big-flavored, fat-reduced recipes for men who love to eat. A once overweight guy who never met a food he didn't love, Don Mauer learned the hard way that most low-fat cookbooks don't appeal to meat-and-potatoes taste buds and come with skimpy portions that may work for New York fashion models but leave men hungry. This cookbook is different, written for men by a real guy with a big appetite. The 175 easy-to-make recipes - Smokin' Chili Pepper Cheeseburgers, Seemingly Sinful Fat-Free Roasted Garlic Whipped Potatoes, Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Pie, Fresh Blueberry Cobbler - are based on Mauer's own favorites. The guy-sized portions get 20 percent or less of their calories from fat, and each recipe comes with a full nutritional analysis, including the amount of saturated fat. A Guy's Guide to Great Eating will end the arguments in the kitchen between men who insist on eating what they love and the people who love them.

Good Eats! Apr 3, 2004
This book is fantastic! I loved every recipe I tried! Bravo Don! Bravo!
No silly foofy food here Feb 2, 2004
You don't have to be a guy to appreciate this book stuffed full of date-worthy dishes. I use this cookbook more than any on my shelf, and noone can ever believe these recipes are low-fat. From Chinese food to Carolina-style turkey BBQ, everything I've tried so far in this book is a real winner. Thank you, Don Mauer, for showing us healthy food that can be every bit as rich and tasty as the "bad" stuff.
excellent Feb 6, 2002
This book, along with Don Mauer's prior cookbook, Lean and Lovin It, helped me lose over 70 pounds. A lot of low fat cookbooks really aren't written by people who like to eat or cook, and it shows. This one is written by someone who enjoys both. These recipes make eating low fat food not just palatable, but a way of life. One note -- a few of the recipes in this book appear to be improvements from the earlier cookbook -- the hummus and cocolate sauce recipes come to mind -- but I'm actually happy to try the variations.

I have been using low-fat cookbooks for about 10 years and this is the best low-fat cookbook I have ever owned (this is impressive, due to the fact that I probable own 50 low-fat cookbooks). Every recipe I have tried so far is wonderful. The servings are big enough for both my husband and me. This is not just a man's cookbook, it is a cookbook for anyone who likes to eat and cook.
Great recipes--low fat or not! Jul 4, 2001
Mauer's recipes are excellent. Of the couple dozen cookbooks I have on the kitchen shelf, I use his the most. The recipes come out great. In fact, the most popular meal I ever made for book club came entirely from this book. People raved about it and never knew it was low fat.
