The Hairy Bikers have lost almost 6 stone between them and you can lose weight too...
Si King and Dave Myers are self-confessed food lovers. Food isn't just fuel to them, it's their life. But, like many of us, they've found that the weight has crept on over the years. So they've made a big decision to act before it's too late and lose some pounds. In this groundbreaking diet book, Si and Dave have come up with tasty recipes that are low in calories and big on flavour. This is real food for real people, not skinny minnies. There are ideas for family meals, hearty lunches and dinners, even a few knock-out bakes and snacking options. The Hairy Bikers will always love their food - pies and curries won't be off the menu for long! - but using these recipes, and following their clever tips and heartfelt advice, you can bake your cake, eat it, and lose the pounds.
Bikers ought to be hirsute, cider-loving and tubby. But in their latest book of recipes Si King and Dave Myers have shed the pounds and immediately reaped the benefit in sales. The moral being that you don't have to lose flavour along with the hefty calorie content ― BELFAST TELEGRAPH
The last people you thought you'd see hosting their own dieting show, but the Hairy Bikers did it in style and proved that losing weight doesn't have to involve lettuce leaves and rabbit food! One of our faves from the slimmed-down duo is the scrummy Spanish-style bake ― GOOD TO KNOW RECIPES
Healthy food doesn't have to be boring, as The Hairy Bikers - now Hairy Dieters! - prove with these mouthwatering low-fat dishes ― WOMAN'S OWN
Dave and Si have lost nearly six stone between them and they've devised lower-calorie versions of usually calorific favourites... keeping all the flavour in tact. Try it - you'll like it. ― REVEAL
The food's good, the advice sensible ― RADIO TIMES
showcases the many mouthwatering, healthy recipes that have helped them drop the pounds... low-calorie delights as a bechamel-free lasagne that uses leeks instead of excess pasta and tandoori chicken with fat-free yoghurt ― DAILY EXPRESS
low-calorie but equally tasty versions of some of their favourite recipes ― DAILY MAIL
Hearty dishes that won't pile on the pounds ― BBC GOOD FOOD
Si & Dave's recipes are SO much more delicious than the average diet dishes, it's no wonder they lost nearly 6st between them! ― WOMAN

We used it ( and still dip in and out as and when to keep weight down).
Bought this one for my son and have recommended it to many others.
I wouldn't write such a glowing review if it wasn't true. A must for anyone who wants to lose weight.
Surprisingly there was also cakes recipes. The skinny carrot cake was that good my sleepwalking self ate most of it. I was absolutely raging the next day when I found it missing.
I've been reading and using other Hairy Bikers books e.g. Pies (!) and Mediterranean. I'd forgotten this book. Now, using it, I've mapped out healthy but appealing meals for the days ahead.
Using a calorie counting approach, it's not entirely compatible with SW but can be adapted. Essentially using the SW method you can eat as much as you like of certain foods including lean meats and fresh fruit and veg, while certain other foods, e.g. bread, attract 'syn' points of which you have a modest daily allowance. Like SW though the Bikers eschew fat, albeit they suggest things like a hunk of wholmeal bread with soup...
I'll aim to report back after trialling this book with SW adaptations.
