“When Billy and I became ‘empty nesters’ some years ago, we had to make a few changes and cooking meals for just two people was a little difficult to get used to, especially when the recipes in my cookbooks were aimed at families.

And I knew I wasn’t alone. So, I set about writing a cookbook and released Cooking for 1 or 2 people back in December 2018. It’s perfect for those of you who, like us, are cooking for just one or two. And I wasn’t wrong, it became an instant best seller. So in 2021 I decided to write the sequel and MORE Cooking for 1 or 2 people was created with MORE deliciously healthy easy-to-make recipes.”

Happy cooking


We lost the weight and kept it off

“We have been cooking Annette’s healthy recipes since the very beginning. We were approaching our 40’s at the time and both got office jobs and our 5 kilo weight gain was an unwelcome surprise! Once we started cooking from Annette’s first cookbook we both lost the weight we’d put on in about 6 months and have been cooking from all of her books ever since. My hubby Geoff has had a kidney transplant so the nutritional information on each recipe is absolutely invaluable to us. We have maintained our ideal weight for many, many years now, your books are our ‘bibles’.” Tracey Hicks

Annette Sym is Australia’s No. 1 low fat cookbook author and Australia’s favourite weight loss mentor, having self-published and sold over 4 million cookbooks.

She once weighed 100 kilos and was getting fatter with every fad diet she tried. A decision to give up dieting and become a healthy person helped her lose 35 kilos and she has been in her healthy weight range since 1993.

Since winning the battle of the bulge, Annette has helped thousands of people to obtain a healthier and happier quality of life. Statistics say that 65% of Australians are overweight or obese, Annette is hopeful that her cookbooks will be a powerful tool to help reduce these statistics.
