'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.
Small quibbles. I would have liked the fibre content as well as the carb count, I can often subtract the unabsorbable fibre from the total carb.
I am a diet controlled diabetic and a lot of the recipes would have been too carby for me at the start of my journey, containing 10-15g carb per portion. Now I have lost 10 st, the diabetes is much better and I can manage these quantities.
She aims for low carb/high protein, which unfortunately misses the latest food guidelines. She has the traditional fear of fat. You need fat for satiety. Protein is everywhere, it's fat we need to keep ourselves full and slender.
The puds avoid the question of sweeteners, using small quantities of sugar and fruit juice for sweetening. Still too much carb for my type 2 diabetes to cope with. Fruit juice is just sugar and water without nutritional benefit.
Low carbing has truly transformed my health and body. Vital for diabetics, but everyone should be cutting down their carb intake.
The recipes are excellent, her dietary knowledge is a little lacking.
the book recommends a low carb, high protein and low fat diet- i would be constantly hungry if i only cooked from this book.
if you have few cookery books, don't know what contains carbohydrate and can't work out that mashing low carb veg such as cauliflower is a good alternative to potatoes, then this book may be for you, otherwise avoid.
oh and then i found this book in homesense for almost half the price i paid on amazon, which made me feel even worse about it.
