If you cook your own meals, you’ll lose weight. And you’ll save money, too.

Now, we know what you’re thinking: Who has the time to cook? And, even worse, maybe you don’t feel like you can cook. Time to ditch that attitude.

In the book, "Cook This, Not That!: 350-Calorie Meals," you'll find tons of delicious recipes that are incredibly easy to make. The calorie count for an average burger at a sit-down restaurant chain is enormous and will almost always run you over the thousand-calorie mark!

Check out these burgers:

  • Applebee’s A.1. Steakhouse Burger: 1,190 calories
  • Ruby Tuesday Smokehouse Burger: 1,219 calories
  • Cheesecake Factory The Classic Burger: 1,440 calories
  • T.G.I.Friday’s Jack Daniel’s Burger: 1,590 calories

But here’s the good news. You can cook the A.1. Swiss Burger recipe from "Cook This, Not That! 350-Calorie Meals," instead. By making burger recipes at home, you’ll only eat 340 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 580 milligrams of sodium. That means you’re saving anywhere from 850 to 1250 calories! That’s the equivalent of cutting out 6 glazed donuts from your meal.
