'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
'Highly recommended for everyday cooking' -- --Alexandra Shulman, Vogue

Check for yourself; simple example would be her (delicious) celeriac mash: 250g of celeriac comes in at around 22g carbs (according to nutrition data dot self dot com) yet her recipe says 6.3g. For all those I've checked the carbs declared are way off.
If the figures are important to you, check them yourself.
Easy and simple recipes to follow which does not break the bank either
There are low carb versions of lots of typical english dishes, such as fish and chips and pies! The mango cheesecake made from quark is very light and lovely too. The photos are beautiful and the recipes are very easy to follow. This book is not evangelical, but presents low carb eating in a simple, natural way.
