Carb-Conscious Eating for Weight Loss and Health, October 22, 1999
Reviewer: A reader
As the author of the first "insulin-conscious" gourmet cookbook ("The Gourmet Prescription: High Flavor Recipes for Lower Carbohydrate Diets"), I'm thrilled that this book is making people more aware of their carbohydrate intake. The carbohydrate binge we've been on for the past decade has made us fat, tired, and sick! Carb-watchers interested in full-flavored, sophisticated food will need more than a gram counter, however. "The Gourmet Prescription" starts where this book ends: It's about intensifying FLAVOR as well as lowering carbohydrates! A full nutritional analysis (including grams of carbohydrate) accompanies each recipe.

This is the perfect book for all who want to know what is in their food. It can be easily taken to the grocery with you for quick reference. This book also has all the most popular foods so you're almost sure everything you need is in it. This is a great gift for all who are concerned about their health, and for those who are just interested in what they are eating.
This book really has 90 pages. This tiny book conventiently fits easily into your purse or back pocket to take with you. The back cover says: "If you love to eat starches, snack foods or sweets, and have trouble stopping once you start, you may be a carbohydrate addict. Standard diets don't work for you simply because it's not a matter of willpower, it's a matter of biology. Offering much more than a standard gram counter, this handy reference provides the special information carbohydrate addicts need in:
*Calorie, fat and carbohydrate counts of 2,700 foods
*Health and diet foods and over-the conter medications that can trigger carbohydrate cravings and weight gain
*Menu items from 14 national fast food chains
*Dining out--ethnic style--for all your favorite foods
*Hundreds of vegetarian, non-meat and non-dairly alternatives
*Low-fat, healthy-heart food choices."
