Rather than using ingredients that will actually help you fight fat, most cookbooks use unhealthy ingredients that often encourage your body to store fat like margarine, high calorie dressings, or even SUGAR! In short, their recipes aren’t optimized as a fat burning diet.
Another issue with many cookbooks out there is they have no structure or organization, making it difficult to create quick and easy meal plans. And most of the time we end up eating the same foods over and over again, day after day. This will only slow your metabolism down to the point where you won’t be losing fat anymore.
