2.0 out of 5 stars Good for ideas, not so good for carbs! 9 April 2013
By Sarupes
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Quite disappointed by the book, as it is nothing like I was expecting. I have been following a low carbohydrate lifestyle for over two years now, so I have a very good understanding of what a low carbohydrate diet entails, and I was just hoping to get some ideas and inspiration from this book.
This book is full of recipes that to do not follow a low carbohydrate diet. I believe that the person that wrote the book did not have an understanding of what low carb meant. It would appear that the person believed that as long as no potatoes, pasta, rice or bread where in the book, then it would constitute low carb.

There are numerous recipes in the book that call for sugar, flour, carrots, sweet chilli sauce (the clue is in the name…), chestnuts … On top of that there use a lot of mention of fruit in the book, and most carbohydrate diets restrict fruit in the initial stages, so it might be confusing for people who might not know this. Apples and mangoes, which are used in the book are very high in carbs.

There also seems to be an emphasis on low-calorie ingredients, which is not really necessary in a low carb book, and seems ridiculous when other recipes use sugar!

All in all, not what I would call a low carb book, and not one I would recommend for anyone looking for a low carb book… Specially not for people new to this way of eating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low carb? 29 April 2013
By C.L
It says its a low carb cook book, the first recipe has 100 grams of sugar in it. I think that tells you pretty much all you need to know about this book. There are some good looking meals on here but its not much good for a low carb diet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lower carb meals but not for a low carb diet 14 April 2013
By karen
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I agree with the other negative reviews. The book seems to be just a collection of normal recipes with just the main carb aspect removed. There is an emphasis on low fat which is not how most low carb diets work. They include the carb content but only for some aspects of the recipe - such as the scallops with sweet chilli sauce (a definite no-no for low carb). It recommends a glass of wine or sherry with the spanish meatballs and beer with another which is a high carb extra. Lots of the recipes have flour, honey and even sugar added.

This is not for anyone first starting out on a low carb diet as the recommendations are just too contradictory. I was looking forward to this book as I've made good use out of other Good food mini cook books but this one is a disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks Good at First Glance 1 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This looks, at first glance, to be a great addition to the repertoire of cook books for those of us following a low carbohydrate way-of-eating, lovely sounding recipes, all nutritionally counted etc...... BUT, and it is a big but, too many of the recipes are also low fat which is anathema when eating a low carb diet for both health and weigh loss purposes. More research by the authors would have picked up on this fact and hence made the book much more useful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Low-fun cooking 23 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Utterly disappointing - and I was so looking forward to it! Very little imagination went into these recipes. They are basically normal meals with just the sides of potato or rice or pasta eliminated. I could have come up with spaghetti-less bolognese myself as low-carb cooking, thanks!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 30 April 2013
This book is ideal for someone trying to follow a low-carb diet! Carb counts are much too high. However it can work if you just use it as a way to maintain your new life-style, just don't expect to lose ant weight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good recipes from a reliable source 13 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great recipes as ever from this series. I have loads of these GF books and all of them are great value for money.
Some of the recipes are a bit high in carbs for me, but they are clearly labelled and every one I have tried has been excellent.
There's another one on chicken recipes and seasonal salads that I also highly recommend to fellow low-carbers out there.
