Lose Weight the Smart Low-Carb Way: 200 High-Flavor Recipes and a 7-Step Plan to Stay Slim Forever

Overview

From Atkins to The Zone, low-carbohydrate diets have taken the country by storm. But despite their popularity, they have a downside.

Many require that you give up virtually all carbohydrates— not only favorites like bread and pasta, but healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Such low-carb diets are nutritionally unsound, alarmingly low in calories and nutrients, and dangerously high in heart-harming fat.

But breakthrough ...

Overview

From Atkins to The Zone, low-carbohydrate diets have taken the country by storm. But despite their popularity, they have a downside.

Many require that you give up virtually all carbohydrates— not only favorites like bread and pasta, but healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Such low-carb diets are nutritionally unsound, alarmingly low in calories and nutrients, and dangerously high in heart-harming fat.

But breakthrough research into how and why low-carb diets work convinced Bettina Newman, R.D., that limiting the intake of carbohydrates can lead to safe, healthy weight loss— if it's done right. Teaming up with Prevention magazine, America's premier health magazine, Bettina developed this moderate, nutritionally sound low-carb approach to weight loss.

Packed with delicious recipes, this book doesn't ask you to eliminate carbohydrates completely. Nor does it foolishly recommend feasting on pork rinds and butter, as some low-carb diets do.

What it does is to offer up a simple, seven-step plan for shedding excess pounds the smart, healthy low-carb way— along with 200 flavorful low-carb recipes for snacks, sandwiches, easy one-dish dinners, even desserts!

In short, there's a low-carbohydrate eating plan that works in the real world. It allows you many of your favorite foods, like pasta, grains, and potatoes. It contains adequate calories, so you don't experience hunger pangs or miss out on important nutrients. And it isn't dangerously high in fat, so you won't increase your risk of developing heart disease.

Nor will you miss out on taste. One look at the recipes— Chocolate Hazelnut Flourless Cake, Whole Grain Pancakes with Berry Cream Syrup, Pesto Chicken Sandwich with Roasted Peppers— will convince you of that. And you'll love the inspiring, real-life stories of people who lost weight the smart low-carb way and have kept it off for as long as 15 years!

You'll also find:

* Six weight-loss plans for every need— choose the calorie and carb levels that are right for you

* Insider tips on mastering a low-carb diet

* A "cheat sheet" for stocking the smart low-carb kitchen

* How to conquer the dreaded weight-loss plateau

* The Smart Low-Carb Food Pyramid

* Time-savers and flavor-boosting tips with recipes

* Smart low-carb food substitutions

* Seven days of slimming menus

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Newman and Joachim explain the science behind a low-carb success and why low-carb does not mean no-carb, but rather the right sort of carbohydrates those with a low glycemic index. Unlike many other low-carb diets, this one promotes not high-fat and refined sugars but unsaturated fat instead of saturated fat, moderate amounts of lean protein, adequate fiber and the key elements of calorie control. The authors provide a low-carb pyramid of suggested eating proportions and begin with a seven-step weight loss program that promotes eating whole grains, controlling portion size and getting exercise. Each recipe (supported by a seven-day eating plan) includes a chart indicating the number of calories, diet values and diet exchanges. These are easy, basic dishes from the Hearty Country Vegetable Soup to the Lamb Chops with Olives. While many recipes are nicely spiced (such as the Turkey Drumstick Curry and Curried Chicken with Coconut), some, such as the Baked Cod with Lemon and Olive Oil, can be bland. These simple recipes are interspersed with time-saving and flavor tip sidebars and include more than 90 full-color photographs. (Apr.) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
