Reviews - What do our customers think?
You have to be an Idiot to think this is "Low Carb"  Dec 27, 2007
Having recently been converted to the Low Carb life by Gary Taube's excellent and life-changing book - Good Calories, Bad Calories Good Calories, Bad Calories - I've been interested in finding cookbooks that would increase my range of food choices while staying within a healthy (for me) daily carb count of less than 40 net carbs. This book isn't it.

As an earlier reviewer noted, a book that uses flour, cornstarch, sugar or regular chocolate, etc. in almost every recipe is NOT low carb. Which is why, no doubt, the serving sizes listed are laughably miniscule. ONE egg for breakfast? I think not.

Worse, I don't believe any of the carb counts in this book can be trusted. Here's the carb count for "nut butter spreads" (made from 2 cups of peanuts for example) on page 56, the serving size for which is 2 tablespoons: 0 grams carbohydrate.

Here's the carb count for "homemade peanut butter" (made from 2 cups of peanuts) on page 250, the serving size for which is 2 tablespoons: 7 grams carbohydrate; 5 net grams.


Some plain chicken recipes have carb counts of 1 or 2 grams - yet a serving of plain roasted chicken has 6 grams per serving!

Bottom Line: If you're looking for real low carb recipes save your money and look elsewhere. All this book will do is reduce your bank account and expand your waist.
Complete Idiot;s Guide to Low-Carb Meals  Oct 28, 2007
Having worked in the medical field for 25 years I thought I knew everything about nutrition, but this book is fabulous. The beginning is an easy to follow explanation of how the carbs we love so much cause our blood sugar to spike; how adding fiber (veggies and fruits) to carbs can help lower their impact on our blood sugar; how eating more veggies along with protein, fruit, and carbs (in that order) can supply us with a great source of energy and fuel for the day, without a constant feeling of hunger (which spikes in blood sugar cause). I lost 15 pounds the first month I followed this eating plan. Yeah, yeah, it helps to add exercise, of course...but exercise is easier to do when you have the energy to face it !!!
Eating Challenged...this should help  Oct 16, 2005
If you have never read a Complete Idiot's guide before do not worry. This book is one of the better ones on a given subject.

This book gives tasty easy to fix recipes. The section on Recipes for Success is worth the price of the book alone. This section gives little know facts that can help you in your quest for more excitement in your meals.

I recommend this book to anyone that is looking into Low-Carb Meals!!!

It is easy to read and use.
Just very handy to have around and read over and over again.

Enjoy this book...I did!!!

Yours in good health

This is a truly awesome book. The recipes are delicious and easy.
I also have a Gluten intolerance and many of the recipes can be adapted for my allergy.
If you're looking for real "low carb" this isn't it  Apr 16, 2005
The book contains a reasonable number of recipes and lots of 'hints' that if you've done ANY reading about low carbohydrate eating, will be superfluous.

The recipes run the gamut of carb counts, though I thought that the bulk of them were much higher carb than is helpful. Following the suggestions in this book and the recipes, it wouldn't be all that hard to hit 80-100++ grams of carb per day... which is simply TOO HIGH for many people who are following low carb lifestyles.

Many recipes call for sugar, white flour, semi-sweet chocolate and cornstarch. Come ON... those are NOT "low carb" ingredients.

This is more or less a repackaged low fat/lower cal cookbook with "low carb" thrown on the cover to try to generate some market share. My copy is being donated to a charity, it isn't worth the space on the shelf for someone interested in real "low carb" cooking.
