Hairy Bikers Dieters – How to love food and lose weight + recipes – What is in the cook book?

The Hairy Dieters – How to Love Food and Lose Weight – REPEATED on BBC1 Wed 2 Jan and Thurs 3 Jan 2013

OK So after an enjoyable set of TV episodes -what is in the book and what are typical recipes? I really think this is a brave thing for the Bikers to do and a very good programme series. What strikes me is when Si and Dave are told about what their extra weight is doing to them. They are startled by the revelations of the Doctor and dietician. How overwieght they are, how much fat they carry and what this means for their health and longevity. A reality check for them, it leads me to ask – what about me?

To read additional reviews of the new cook book and best buy offers see,  The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight and for Kindle versions see The Hairy Dieters: How to Love Food and Lose Weight Kindle download edition.

NEW: The Hairy Bikers’ Great Curries cook book

So here follows a summary of the contents of the book:

Dave Myers and Si King have been very clever in approaching this issue and from their perspective and for their health’s sake, it is vital they change their diet and loose weight.

But the guiding principle is to still maintain their love of food. Retain flavour and texture, but reduce the calories. Not hard to do for one or two meals, but difficult to re-adjust to a life time of proper eating – it takes will power. As we eat more we seem to need more!

Book Contents: the new book has sections on each of:

  • Breakfasts, Brunch
  • One-pan dishes
  • grills
  • roasts
  • pies
  • stews
  • vegetables
  • salads
  • pasta
  • rice
  • puddings
  • cakes
  • lunch boxes
  • snacks

So based on altering our meal content to reduce the total calories there is plenty of scope for us to amend any one of our meals. Nice ideas on how to replace ‘heavy’ i.e. calorific high ingredients with alternatives helps. Taste and texture do not suffer!

The guys give us a guide as to how to begin and advice on how to go about this change in eating that will help reduce weight and lower the intake of calories.

What about cranberry and almond muesli for breakfast? Or fruit compote with granola?

A lot of the changes require us to take control of what goes into our food and we will need to make some of these items from the basic ingredients. It will be a little more time consuming, but like everything in life it will be worth the extra effort.

Hard lesson: We take responsibility for our own relationship with food and realise what needs to be done before it is too late. We see the health dangers in others and we can try and change now – even if only in a small way.

So how about golden vegetable soup or salmon with ginger chilli sauce?

Some recipes include:

Overall a good and encouraging book, that tackles a difficult topic amongst us all. There is a sensitive spot in each one when it comes to what we eat and our weight, even our appearance. But there are benefits to be had by eating good but low fat – low calorie food. What about a longer and healthier life – for a start? Feeling better each day, better relationships….
Si and Dave are to be commended for taking on what should be counter to their thinking as cooks?

NEW: The Hairy Bikers’ Great Curries cook book

This is an honest and thought provoking programme – be prepare for alot of honesty.. you might say humble pie! Seriously, though this is very serious and as we all care for our friends, family but what about ourselves. When young you don’t notice the changes building up because of over eating, but hit 45 and then see high blood pressure and other problems. Life is shortening before us and we delay… Si and Dave realise that food while being their job, it is pleasurable and an adventure. But are they fat?

Read on or watch The Hairy Dieters – clips only for yourself…on BBC iPlayer…enjoy….
________________________________________________________________

Ken Hom and Ching He Huang Exploring China BBC2 Sundays at 8.00pm

________________________________________________________________

The guys with support of the family will try to loose weight and circumference around their waist. Measuring themselves is a laugh, but they are well over the recommended 37 inches for men. A bet of £500 to be able to fit into his favourite jeans, means Dave will have to loose weight big time.
Off to the market office where Si and Dave get weighed and the results is 19st 5 lbs and 17st 11lbs. Wow!!
How did it all happen, was it curry and beer? They both were slim when younger.
In those days money was scarce… so is it due to the fact we are all so well off today and most don’t go hungry – in fact we eat too much? Are we greedy…lazy…I am reminded of the saying “No free lunch”
Les and Muriel family of Dave’s have known him all their lifeained their slim figures and they don’t eat fried food, but grill thier food. Take out more than you put in is the advice from Les.
The boys realise they go back for second helpings and thus put on the weight…eating TOO MUCH!
So off to the University and Hospital of Newcastle and research int fat and diabeties. The effects of blubber on our bodies, i.e. body fat. Visceral fat, fat on the tummy. So Si and Dave have their body fat measured. Dave 38.1% fat…and Si 42% respectively…woops…
The professor at the university provides advice and wants the Hairy Bikers to lose 2 stone in about 3 months.
A return to the old school brings back memeories of some bad times, that perhaps led to the eating habit.


Britain needs to loose weight yet still enjoy cooking and our food.

Off to the dietician and a measure of how mush Dave and Si are actually eating. Opps, the daily average calorie intake for men is 2500, the guys are eating 3,500…1,000 calories for breakfast alone, 2,500 for dinner. Two bottles of wine…..

Well this is very revealing and the guys are stunned.

A visit to Jeff and Jane sees advice from Jeff on how to lower the fat used in cooking.

OK The answer is to join a ladies keep fit club… lots of laughs here, but they guys can’t cope.

The answer is to form a club of their own, a mutual support group to help each other. These friends of Si and Dave are overweight but enjoy their food, so the plan is hatched to find new recipes and try them out on the support group.

First of all is a lasagne with leeks instead of pasta for the layers. Lower fat – less cheese and stronger flavours.

They try it out as a surprise on the support group and chop the calories from 700 to 350.

Next week the search for recipes and the Hairy Bikers become the Hairy Cyclists. Very appropriate today when Sir Chris Hoy and team win gold,well done!! Bradley Wiggins – what can we say, thanks guys.

Well over the past few series of Si (Simon King) and Dave’s (David Meyers) cooking shows, we have noticed a little bit of weight being added on – each episode….

Yet still have reduced the fat and calories… a timely warning of improper eating and the benefits of eating properly. We will enjoy four programs in the series.
