Book Description

9 Jan 2014
Reducing your carbohydrate intake is proven as not only the fastest way of shedding those unwanted pounds, but keeping them off in the long-term. Here is a book that shows you how to achieve that without giving up any of your favourite dishes. Award-winning food writer Annie Bell approaches the Low Carb diet as a food lover and passionate cook, which is reflected in her approach to this way of life throughout the book.

Annie’s 140 well-loved classic recipes show you how to cook food that is full of the yummy factor we all cherish, at the same time as helping you lose weight. Recipes include healthy, Low Carb versions of family favourites such as Simple Spanish Tortilla, Spicy Wraps, Fish and Chips with Tartare Sauce, Cottage Pie with Leek and Cauliflower Mash, and a Very Dark and Moussey Chocolate Cake. Many recipes include optional extras and variations such as an Apple Chutney with a Spicy Root Veg Soup, a Bernaise Sauce to accompany Minute Steak with Asparagus, and Fattoush with Lemon and Spice Roast Chicken. With chapters like Burger Bar, Chop House, Pies and Casseroles, and Mash, Chips or Roast, these relaxed and comforting recipes are a trawl through today's popular food culture, reflecting both how we eat at home as well as when we when we are out and about. This book is indispensable for anyone seeking to follow a Low Carb regime to either lose or simply maintain their weight in the long term, with a foreword by a leading specialist Dr Alexander D. Miras MRCP, PhD. Recipes include nutritional analyses which list carbohydrate and protein values and can be readily adapted to fit in with everyday life.

Product Description


'No don't worry, I'm not on a diet, but whatever book Annie Bell writes is always sure to contain recipes i want to cook. Her latest is no exception.-- Nigella Lawson

'There's no pretence at complete carb denial here there's even a moussey flourless chocolate cake and a couple of fruit desserts but carnivores, gluten-avoiders, sugar-deniers and bloat-haters will find plenty to conjure with. Followers of Dukan and Atkins will be able to pluck and adapt too, especially as the carbohydrate and protein count of each recipe is given[...]Part of the plan is that, if diners still want carbs, you can add some on the side. It was sorely tempting to boil some rice to go with the slow-roast salt-and-pepper duck with spring greens and sherry gravy I tried but, as promised we didn't miss it. After three hours' cooking and a quick blast to crisp the skin, the duck was tender and gloriously burnished and easy to pull apart rather than carve; I doubt I'll bother cooking it any other way now I've tried this. And when a 'diet' book teaches you a better way to cook, it's a keeper.'-- Emma Sturgess, The Metro

'If the January detox failed to have the desired effect then you could give Annie Bell's Low Carb Revolution a shot. [It is] a new way of eating to stay slim, rather than a one-off diet[...]made easier by Bell's easy-to-do recipes employing simple ingredients, which she used during her own attempt to stick to a low-carb diet.' ----Carolyn Hart, Telegraph Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for everyday meals 9 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for some low carb meal ideas and have found the recipes very good and easy to follow. Fantastic to find a book that caters for normal people who work all week and don't have hours to prepare thing and don't need to buy hundreds of weird and wonderful ingredients. I also have enjoyed using new vegetables which I have never thought about using before. I found the big winners from this book were the egg wraps for easy low carb lunches, the celeriac chips, the broccoli mash and the cottage pie with cauliflower and leek mash - all delicious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-changing - and delicious! 23 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We LOVE this book. We have been following the Harcombe diet for some time and wanted to expand our repertoire a little so decided to give this a try. Firstly, the presentation and style of the book is great, Annie Bell writes really honestly and in a way that immediately draws you in. This is one of those cookbooks which as you work through you are taken by how many recipes you want to try - starting immediately with the fish and chips on the cover. So far we have tried them (quite involved but delicious - ground almonds instead of breading on the fish - who knew?) celeriac chips - a revelation (in fact, the general use of celeriac is great); spaniah tortilla; steak casserole with crispy onions and brocolli mash (another revelation); full English salad; juicy chicken with spinach. So far, not one mis-hit. The key thing is that you genuinely don't feel like you are on a diet - you are eating delicious varied food, just with a lot less carbs. One word of advice - stock up on olive oil - you will get through a lot in the various recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ! 4 Feb 2014
I love this book. It makes you look at your vegetable basket in a different light. The Chicken and spinach pie with pumpkin mash is an absolute winner. Recipes are easy, no fuss and super delicious healthy eating. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok 19 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The recipes seemed ok, of course I haven't tried all of them yet. However I would have liked to have more information on the nutritional info for each recipe, i.e. kl etc. and a bit more scientific information about how the body and particularly metabolism works, and how you could combine foods so that you don't have a diet that's lacking important ingredients for good health.

I do love Annie Bell's recipes (I have many of her books) but wasn't so impressed with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it and Try it - you'll never look back 9 Oct 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is clear and easy to follow with enticing photos. I have incorporated this book into my 2 no carbs day and it has worked a treat. Coming into Autumn armed with this book makes me confident I will stay slim throughout the winter and still be able to eat comfort food. I no longer eat potatoes; I am converted to using celeriac for everything where a potato used to be. I tried a real chip the other day of my daughter's plate and I have to say it was pretty tasteless in comparison.

It is about changing ones eating habits and tastebuds and thinking outside of the normal vegetable box!
