Product Description

About the Author

Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say "You can't eat that way long-term." Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, "What's for supper?" To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of "CarbSmart" magazine at www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.

I have been reading about Dana putting this cookbook together in her Low-Carb E-zine for around 8 months, and after all that work this book is not a disappointment!
Although she has included quite a few of the recipes that she has already published in her lowcarbezine, this does not detract from the value of the book at all, as (at last!) the recipes that I love to cook are now in one easy to find place! :-)
She doesn't rely on "funky" ingredients, that you can only obtain in the US, to achieve excellent results (unlike some other US LC cookbooks) and even gives "conversion" notes for her international readers.
I highly recommend the Sunflower Parmesan Crackers, Hazelnut Shortbread, Helen's Chocolate Bread-pudding, Not-so-hard sauce, and for The Tia Maria Lovers out there, Mockahula!
I LOVE Dana's work, her style is friendly and very readable, and she comes over as a genuine and honest person.
10 out of 10! :-)

I bought this book purely based on the reviews that had been left and I can see why they were so great. The book is written as if its a note to a friend and the recipes are written in a really easy to follow way.
It has a massive range of recipes from quick and easy to those that take longer. The carb count is broken down for each recipe too so you can count your carbs easily.
This has some delicious recipes included and this is definitely one for the shelf if you plan to eat low carb long term.

The biggest problem with this book is its American, which means not all the receipe ingredients are available in the UK.
The style of writing reminds me a little of Nigella Lawson, that chatty, I'm stood next to you in the kitchen holding a conversation type of prose, but without Nigella's sophistication.
However the book does hold lots of tips on low carb eating in general, and most of the receipes I've tried have worked well. I particular enjoyed "Sloppy Jose" and "Glazed Turnips". This is definitely a useful book for any low carber, especially with the present limited resources available in the UK.
Each receipe has a carbohydrate break down, showing total carbs and net carbs (i.e. minus the fibre). And there are useful receipes for party/snacks that can be kept in the fridge for those time you just want to nibble!
A good buy for low carbers/ those avoiding sugar.

Dana Carpender has written several low-carb recipe books, but this was one of her very first ones. She is American, and the book was clearly written with her local audience in mind (rather than an international one). Readers of this book need to be prepared for measurements in ounces and 'cups' and oven temperatures in Fahrenheit. Also, you need to be able to translate items like 'cilantro' (coriander, in the UK) as well as 'zucchini' (courgette) etc. Some ingredients will be unfamiliar, and others simply unavailable in UK-based shops.

Also, there are NO pictures in this book. That's not an issue for me, but it might be for some others. However it is already a *hefty* tome, and adding pictures would probably make it impractically thick! :-)

Despite all the comments I've made above, I still rate this as a four-star book. There is something in here for everybody trying to cook low carb - so even if there might be 100 recipes you couldn't easily make in the UK, there are still hundreds which you can still manage with ingredients easily sourced over here.

I still often refer to this book, but for those that would struggle with the convertions then instead I'd recommend her (internationalised) follow-up book - the imaginatively titled "500 More Low-Carb Recipes". That book includes metric measurements and much more 'international' food... but still no pictures... :-)

As the author notes, a low-carb diet can become boring after a while so having this book gives you many more options. As a Brit, some of the ingredients she mentions are not available over here (or certainly not easy to find) and of course you have to measure differently, although cup measurements are easy enough to buy these days. What I find a bit annoying about American recipes is that they seem to like making things in huge quantities - servings in this book are commonly 6-8, and they aren't always easy to scale down. Nonetheless, this is a really useful book for you to have if you follow a low-carb diet and need to look beyond steaks, omelettes and meat and salad.

Nice recipes but I am not going to splash out £20 for a tin of whey powder. Other odd ingredients crop up. It's aimed at an American readership.
I would have liked plain and simple everyday recipes with everyday ingredients.

Dana Carpender writes the best, most straightforward low carb books around. Great for Atkins lifestylers. Just remember that the author is American,and the recipes are all the more interesting for it.

A great book, it arrived this morning and I've read the first ten pages and just wanted to say if you are starting to wake up and realise that to many carbs is not good for you then this is the book to get. Dana is so down to earth in her writing its refreshing. Lots of recipes to choose from and it's all normal foods. Lots of bread options to which is where my husband is suffering, every recipe is easy to understand and at the end she has even worked out the carbs, fibre and usable carbs as well as the protein. Love this book, best recipe book I've brought so far and there has been a few. Shhh just don't tell my husband.
