This book is not low carb. It is low sugar but high carb. If you are looking for a low carb book, this is not the one.
This book has a lot of interesting recipes for a Low-Carb lifestyle. I tried and enjoyed several of the recipes but want to try another diet plan for now.
A little "fancy" for my tastes, but great for someone who enjoys being creative in the kitchen.
So many people find weight-loss success by pursuing a high-protein, low-carbohydrate regimen that dieters have become curious as to this diet's real nature. In 501 Recipes for a Low-Carb Life, Gregg R. Gillespie and Mary B. Johnson emphasize the importance of distinguishing "good" versus "bad" carbohydrates in achieving both sound nutrition and weight loss. The book's recipes arise from an all-American cuisine that borrows freely from many ethnic traditions. Turkish chicken phyllo triangles offer plenty of texture to alleviate hunger. A layered black-bean dip provides the fiber so often lacking in high-protein dieting. And Chinese pork dumplings reduce carbohydrates to a bare minimum. Sugars in desserts make this course a carbohydrate minefield, but Gillespie and Johnson find a few items that restrict carbohydrates when portions are carefully controlled. Recipes' nutritional analyses cover calories, carbohydrates, protein, and fat grams. Mark Knoblauch
