1.0 out of 5 stars The wheat free options are VERY bad options, 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Low Carb Eating: How a Wheat Free Menu, or Mediterranean Diet Can Help with Weight Loss (Kindle Edition)
I've only just read the intro to this book suggesting people who opt for a wheat free diet will be free from their bloating, and gas symptoms, but they won't be if they continue to eat the alternatives suggested i.e. corn, cornmeal, corn starch, barley flour, rye, soy flour, oats, oatcakes. She says the information is supported by medical evidence. I don't think so !

Oh I've spotted a few typos too and and what the heck are "black oils" in the recipe for Rosemary Spiced Wheat Free Flat Bread Recipe?

"12 black oils cured in oil, pitted and chopped roughly"

Also what does this mean?

"30 large shrimp that have been peeled, deveined and cooked"

She also says that the Atkins diet is harmful ! I don't think so !!! Dr Atkins helped many thousands of patients over very many years.

Canola oil is also suggested, but this is definitely not a healthy oil.

Also she says: "rather than fried in artery-clogging grease." If this were a Low Carb book in the true sense of the word then she'd know that we need to eat fat and fatty meats to satisfy us which will in turn promote weight loss when keeping carbs low.

She also talks about limiting salt intake. Refined table salt yes, but we need all the minerals found in sea salt for our bones, not just calcium and magnesium. She also talks about fat being the reason for Westerners having a high rate of heart disease, again NOT TRUE. She refers to studies from 2008, 2009 and 2010, but needs to get up to date with the facts.

So in short, I wouldn't recommend this book.
