Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge has been developing top recipes for nearly three decades and knows how to make things taste good. He also understands how much willpower it takes to shift unhealthy excess weight, because he has lost over 11 stone in the last four years by following a low-carb diet. Now Tom is turning his attention to helping food-lovers who have chosen a lower-calorie diet as their own route to weight-loss.
This is a lower-calorie diet with a difference - it's based on hunger-satisfying portions of delicious, lower-calorie dishes that taste amazing. The focus is on the food that we can and should be eating to lose weight, which is easy to make and won't make you feel as though you are missing out. Recipes include warm halloumi salad; salt and pepper squid; sweet potato and black bean burritos; sticky pork chops; and baked doughnuts with sweet five-spice dust.
As Tom says: `It's impossible to stick to a diet if the food you're expected to eat is boring and doesn't fill you up. So I've developed lots of tasty and satisfying recipes that people will love to cook and eat, but that will also help them lose weight. I truly believe that this attitude works. I've been there myself and now I want to help others get there too.'
By adopting a new, healthy approach to eating you really CAN lose weight for good.

Tom Kerridge worked as a chef in restaurants across Britain before deciding to set out on his own and take over a rundown pub in the quiet Buckinghamshire town of Marlow. He opened The Hand & Flowers with his wife Beth in 2005, and it went on to become the first (and only) pub in the world to acquire two Michelin stars. In 2014 he opened a second pub in Marlow, The Coach. As well as hosting two of his own BBC television series, Tom has been at the helm of the BBC's Food & Drink and Bake Off: Creme de la Creme. His previous books include Proper Pub Food, Tom Kerridge's Best Ever Dishes, Tom's Table and the bestselling Tom Kerridge's Dopamine Diet.
