Calorie Counters - Good cookbooks or websites for low cal eating

Hi all
I am in need of some new cookbooks for low cal cooking, any ideas?

I have the following...

Hungry Girl - 200 under 200 (i love this, has some great things in it)
Biggest Loser - Family Cookbook (it is ok, a few good things)

Any other suggestions? Maybe even a website?

I am in need of more meals. I have breakfast and lunch down but we have a large family and I am trying to come up with some "new" ideas for them. We all eat low cal, well the calories we should eat.

Cooking Light magazine is fantastic, and their website has thousands of recipes archived :) You can also buy annual cookbooks that contain a full years worth of recipes.

I think to look at what is mentioned and also look at the calories on the weight watchers recipes. They are healthy and all of them have the calories listed. I am going to use my cookbooks I have bought from them in the past but I am going to work calories vs. points so I can relax a bit and enjoy my personally tailored to suit me Plan.
I also know about good balancing of food in a day but have gotten frustrated because what my body needs on some days is different than other days. Also, I can satisfy my yearn for some carbs without a feeling of guilt and cheating. I need more flexibility and don't mind using calories to keep the day making sense.

Thanks ladies, I am looking into these.

I am not a huge fan of cooking light, I have found that they just do not fit (budget wise) a large family.

I was just going to say cooking light and eating well.

In particular, Cooking Light: the essential dinner tonight cookbook because it gives the whole game plan for the entree/side/veg thing. I like not having to think about it too much. :)

I've found some tasty recipes on george stellas website. I have ordered one of his cookbooks but it hasn't arrived yet. I searched through the recipes online and tried a few first. I love them!
