This is the book for you if you like highly processed vegetarian products - oh, and if you live in the US, as I had never heard of some of the suggestions. I was really disappointed with this book as I was hoping for some good low carb veggie ideas. Rose Elliot's book is much better and actually bases the diet on real food. My advice - save your money. I should have looked closely at the cover pix with the vegetarian spam....

HASH(0x9dc2e768) out of 5 stars Reduced carb maybe, but not Low Carb 30 April 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Buyer beware: Many of the recipes in this book are not what most dieters would consider low carb. About half weigh in with carb counts of 30-60 g. per serving. That's more than many low-carb dieters eat in a whole day!

The author explains that she considers a diet of 130-150 g. of carbs per day "low-carb." This is the type of vegetarian diet that made many of us fat in the first place! There's a reason that most of the popular diet plans call for daily net carb consumption of only 20-50 grams: Clinical experience has shown that higher carb counts simply won't do the job for people who have a substantial amount of weight to lose.

This might be a useful book for people on a maintenance plan, who want to take off 10 lbs., or who just want to cut out "white food" (processed sugar and flour) from their diet. The recipes do look tasty! But it's not going to be very useful for the many people who are looking to lose significant amounts of weight and need to restrict their carbs to lower levels to do so.

HASH(0xaac3a63c) out of 5 stars Wonderful recipes and easy to prepare 11 Aug. 2004
By R. Montgomery - Published on
Format: Paperback
Until I acquired the "Low-Carb Vegetarian Cookbook", I had no luck at all with vegetarian cookbooks and Low-Carb diets. The food combinations were often odd, the prep work was time-consuming, and worst of all, the finished products just didn't taste all that good. I'd spend hours kneading and chopping, only to have my husband turn up his nose when dinner was served. But wow, this cookbook is different. The recipes are interesting and appealing like Pasta Puttanesa, Twenty-Minute Chili and my favorite, Dixie's Butternut Squash Soup to name a few. There are some unusual ethnic entries for those with adventurous palates, but plenty of delicious, easy-to-follow recipes for those with more standard American tastes. There's also some helpful info on easing into the vegetarian lifestyle and comparing some of the more popular "Low-Carb" diets rendered in light, witty prose (that's another thing about most other vegetarian cookbooks...they're so deadly dull and serious). Best of all, the results are awesome. I'm rooting for a sequel!

HASH(0x9e318210) out of 5 stars long needed cookbook! 19 Sept. 2004
By Katherine - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband and I just love this book! We are trying to stay on low-carb diet but we always fail, because once we eat toufu and vegetable for months, we just have enough(!!!) of it and then we easily return to our old bad habits... The author's main point is rather than eating hard core low-carb diet it's better to relax diet's requirements a bit and stay on the diet for ever...Hope we can make it this time!

HASH(0x9dc2ea44) out of 5 stars A much-needed book! 16 Aug. 2004
By Veggie Lover - Published on
Format: Paperback
At last, a low-carb diet for the rest of us (those who don't think that 10 ounces of steak is a heavenly dinner, that is). DeMello has produced a treasure trove of recipes here--ones that will appeal to people who a) don't eat meat for philosophical or health reasons; and b) are just trying to reduce the amount of animal products in their diets in general. By providing

yummy, easy-to-prepare recipes, this book takes the work out of trying to lose weight on a vegetarian (or semi-vegetarian) diet! The info on the whys and wherefores of various lo-carb diets is also very helpful.

HASH(0x9dc2ec9c) out of 5 stars Hurray for Textured Soy! 19 July 2005
By Lenora H. Sorensen - Published on
Format: Paperback
What I appreciated most about this book was the food suggestions are tasty! I stay away from most 'health food' restaurants because the food is too bland, but all the products (veggie hot dogs, burgers, bacon, chicken and tuna substitutes, etc. made from textured soy) recommended in this book and most of the recipes are really interesting in taste, texture, and variety.
