After the success of the New York Times bestselling The Rice Diet Solution, the Rice Diet Program's message boards were bombarded with pleas and suggestions for more Rice Diet-friendly recipes. The result is this collection of healthy whole-food dishes, which includes personal favorites from the Rice Diet kitchen as well as from successful dieters who want to share their weight-loss tips with everyone who intends to lose weight and live a healthier life.

By ambitiously limiting sodium-rich ingredients and relying on complex carbohydrates as the main source of nutrition, the recipes in this book can help women lose nineteen to twenty pounds and men lose twenty-eight to thirty pounds -- in one month!
For breakfast, try Gooey Apple Oatmeal, the Elvis Special, or French Toast Sticks. In the mood for a light lunch? Mix up a Basil-Mint Quinoa Salad and pair it with a Refried Bean and Roasted Red Pepper Lettuce Wrap. When the urge to snack hits you, munch on some Zesty Sweet Potato Chips or Barley Pesto Dip on Eilene's Pita Bread. And at dinnertime, how about Pan-Seared Sea Scallops with Angela's Spinach with Sun-dried Tomato and Ilene's Mashed Cauliflower? Or make a meal out of Chicken and Spinach Salad with some Cannellini Bean Salad on the side. Don't forget dessert: Ricers have found amazing ways to satisfy their cravings! There's Chocolate-Banana Cream Custard, Rhubarb-Dried Cherry Crumble, Samba's Gingered Pear Cake, or the super simple and truly delicious Toasted Ginger Papaya.
In addition to recipes, The Rice Diet Cookbook is also full of incredible feedback from people who have achieved major weight loss on the Rice Diet. Their inspirational stories will motivate you to live a healthier life the Rice Diet way. The Rice Diet Cookbook is a truly encouraging, supportive book that will help you make living a wholesome lifestyle both simple and sustainable.
Call it the anti-Atkins: instead of preaching the weight-loss potential of an endless steak and eggs buffet, this plan suggests a regimen rich in whole grains, beans, fruits and vegetables. The plan allows only limited amounts of dairy or animal protein, urges dieters to avoid salt, exercise regularly and keep a journal to chart their progress. Low-calorie eating and physical activity are commonsense methods of losing weight, and, for the most part, Rosati's level-headed approach is refreshing. Occasionally the author veers toward immoderation, disallowing chicken because it causes "a slight rise in blood pressure or cholesterol," and suggesting that a detoxification is necessary before starting in order to return the body to "a clean, natural state." In general, though, the author is straightforward and reassuring, and heartfelt testimonials from people who have lost huge amounts of weight provide encouragement. Even better, Rosati includes appealing recipes to help readers keep losing weight: Ryan's Crispy Fish Sticks are baked but have a just-fried crunch, and Ilene's Mashed Cauliflower is a deliciously garlicky substitute for mashed potatoes. Desserts, too, are fulfilling, especially a Rhubarb-Dried Cherry Crumble sweetened with fruit and maple syrup; with dozens more dishes to help dieters along, this a complete and satisfying plan.
