500 Low-Carb Recipes: 500 Recipes from Snacks to Dessert, That the Whole Family Will Love

Low-fat or low-carb? A recent New York Times Magazine (July 7, 2002) cover story answered this question and said that Dr. Atkins was right all along, “its not fat that makes us fat but carbohydrates.” Though the government has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in research trying to prove that fat is the cause of obesity, there has been a subtle shift in the scientific consensus over the past five years supporting what the low-carb diet doctors have been saying all along: if we eat less car

    First let me say that I own many, many low-carb cookbooks, and this one is THE best I have ever read! Not only does it offer 500, yes, 500 recipes that are easy, fabulous and low carb, but the introduction and ingredient chapters were SPECTACULAR! The introduction was warm, witty and informative. I typically skim through the beginning chapters and get right to the recipes, but I couldn’t put this one down! So many questions that I had were answered in the Low Carb Specialty Foods chapter, not to mention the Polyols chapter and the Where to Find Low-Carb Specialty Products chapter (she doesn’t like paying through the nose for this stuff, either)!

    The Ingredients You Need to Know About section was the absolute best–necessary and unique information about eggs, fats/oils, flour substitutes (what the heck are guar and xanthan gums, anyway–she answers that, too!), sweeteners (wow, I can have molasses!), vegetables (and I can have carrots, too!), and oh so much more. Her first recipe is addictive enough to eat every day (Heroin Wings)! I wish I could say that I’ve made all the recipes, but I’m so busy trying out the recipes from the first chapter, I haven’t even looked at the other chapters yet, but believe me, I know they’ll be outstanding.

    This author is down-to-earth, funny and charming. I can relate to her so well. She stresses over and over again to listen to your body and let that be your guide regardless of whether the food is low-carb. This works so well for me. The BEST book you will ever purchase on low-carbing and low-carb recipes. DON’T MISS THIS ONE!

    The hardest thing about going low-carb for me was staying excited about eating from the recipes in my plan’s book. Then I ordered Dana’s book. First, Dana is not a diet doctor, she’s real human like the rest of us, and her book is written in a very refreshing, down-to-earth tone. Second, Dana’s book has taken the monotony OUT of my low-carb life. Let’s talk fabulous stir-fry served over cauliflower “rice” … absolutely amazing waffles … terrific spicy Thai cucumber salad that was eaten up to the very last bite at my office picnic today … and of course, desserts. The hardest problem I have with this book is not giving away the recipes to my friends and low-carb associates who try the dishes because, quite frankly, like any author Dana is trying to make a living too so I tell them they just have to buy the book so she’ll be encouraged to write another one. I promise you that you will not be disappointed with this book!!! And yes, Dana has pretty much attained goddess status in my life ;-)

    I have a bunch of low-carb cookbooks and will continue to buy more! But, this book is by far the best that I have tried so far. The recipes aren’t just tired repeats of ones found in other books or ones you can find on-line. The hot cereal is a life saver in the morning as you make up the mix in bulk and then just add hot water to a serving of the dry mix. I was so tired of eggs and this is great. Also, the recipes aren’t swimming in fat like so many low-carb recipes.
