Our Top Recipe Picks

We know that losing weight isn't always easy — especially when it seems like you can never again enjoy some of your favorite hearty comfort foods. Or, even worse, if you think you'll be stuck eating raw broccoli for the rest of your life.

So we decided to compile a list of our exclusive favorites (based on your positive user comments) to show you that you can eat practically whatever you want and still lose weight. From Sesame Chicken to Parmesan Mashed Potatoes to Coconut Cream Pie, slimming down has never been tastier or easier!
