Lillien started her web site, www.hungry-girl.com, in 2003, and she now has close to 400,000 subscribers to her free daily e-newsletter. She doesn’t have a food background but describes herself as a “foodologist,” someone who is “obsessed with foods that taste great but don’t pack on the pounds.” Like the newsletter, the book includes recipes, food and nutrition factoids, and “Hungry Girl Hints” and other strategies. The recipes rely heavily on low-fat, low-calorie products and other convenience foods-‘Kickin’ Chicken Pot Pie, for example, is made with frozen mixed vegetables, fat-free cream of celery soup, reduced-fat biscuit dough, and chicken (that’s it). Whether they taste great is debatable, but many of the soups, salads, and main courses are very high in sodium. Nevertheless, Hungry Girl has many fans, and there is sure to be demand.
