2.0 out of 5 stars Complicated!, 20 July 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Vegetarian Low-Carb Diet: The fast, no-hunger weightloss diet for vegetarians (Paperback)
I will start by saying that my opinion of this book may be coloured by my age and state of mind! I am 60 and have a jaded view of dieting. I just found this book way too complicated .... someone else might view it positively as providing lots of detail. Yes, I think it is for young, enthusiastic people.
The first 60 pages are taken up with 'how the diet works' and 'case histories', then the '14 day Carb Cleanse' starts. After that, lots of recipes. I also felt uncomfortable about her pushing 'stevia', which is a sweetener that is illegal in the UK but can be bought from the US.
I chose the book because in 1975 I bought a copy(75p!) of Rose Elliot's 'Bean Feast' which I love and still use occasionally now.

Stevia is not illegal in the UK, and if it is, it's for no good reason (other than perhaps market giants). It is a perfectly healthy, natural sweetener.

I was simply quoting what the author herself says in the book.

You can even buy it in Asda - it does have a funny after taste though.

Thanks for that. I won't be buying it. Too many diet books are padded out with unwanted/useless information. If they stuck just to the facts of the diets, most books would be pamphlets!
