Okay, so I'm no Julia child, but out of the first five recipes I attempted, only two of them actually worked! The cake looked more like an omelette, the dumplings disintegrated as they boiled and the gnocci was just soup. I wasted not only the money on the book, but also some perfectly good (and not cheap) ingredients.

I waw excited to expand my repetoire of low carb recipes when I bought this cookbook. I was particularly excited about cheesecake and gnocchi...two things I'd missed on low-carb dieting. I have tried several recipes. At best, the results have left a bit to be desired. Most results have ended up in the trash because they taste so bad and resemble what they are supposed to be so poorly. I think the problem is the recipes, not me. My husband has complimented me in the past on picking up a new recipe and coming out with a great dish, but that hasn't happened with any of the recipes in this cookbook.

The Atkins Program is not a diet, it is a life style change. I have been on several diets in the past 15 years and I have never recieved the incredible results that I have personally recieved using this program. Using the proper ingredients listed in the recipes, will yield you wonderful, tasty meals. This low carbohydrate life style change makes total sense. My husband and I have tried several recipes from this cookbook and had great success. Without these recipes I could not have done so well on the Atkins Program! In the first two weeks I lost a total of 2 inches off my bust, 6.5 inches off my waist, 3 inches off my hips, 1/2 inch off my bicepts and 1 inch off my thighs! I look and feel so much better. My blood pressure came down considerably using these recipes, even without the aid of my medication! This book is a must if you truly care about your health and want to look and feel better. You do have to be committed for this program to work. My health, self esteem and my husband thank you!

after 30 years after the first atkins book, AMA and AHA's emphasis on bread, sugar, cereals pasta on it's food pyramid had created lots of obese persons. He could be right after all on his low carbohydrate theory. So, its the food pyramid theory advanced by the AMA and AHA's that is dangerous not Atkins.

I'm on a low-carb diet way before I purchased the book and it still effective to this day. I was looking for more options to extend my recipe box. When I purchased the book it dissapointed me tremendously. I'd tried many of the recipes and they don't turn like in the book, especially desserts. Even the pancakes looks way too thin and the taste reminds me of my childhood's cafeteria with their infamous powder egg mixture! I ended up with a lot of dry ingredients (expensive nevertheless) in my cabinet that I don't want to use anymore.

We have enjoyed the ideas for the different flavors of burgers, especially the U.S. burger and the Feta Burger. Have only tried 2 of the chicken recipes so far, but both were great. The brownies are small, but yummy. As far as the bread goes, you have to think more along the line of flatbreads and enjoy the butter or cream cheese you are allowed. Although the texture is a little different, the ice cream turns out well. The only drawback we have so far is time. Except for morning omelettes or the burgers, most meals take time and/or planning ahead
