Introduction

After consulting with thousands of patients for weight loss and wellness in my private practice and online at www.totalhealthdoc.com, I saw the need to offer individuals more low-carb options. Even though I've always recommended healthier protein and carbohydrate choices through my Total Health program, I'm not a purest. I'm a realist! Not every person, including myself, is going to shop in health food stores one hundred percent of the time.

That's why people need alternate food options, from fast-food and low-carb desserts to alcoholic beverages. I've always told my patients and online weight loss members to be realistic when embarking on their weight loss and wellness programs. Life goes on during their journeys to their target weights and long after they've reached them. Whether it's a birthday, a retirement party, a wedding or an after-work get-together, there's always something. People need options.

There's an estimated 59 million Americans presently following low-carbohydrate principles, and they all want more options. As a result, the skyrocketing demand for low-carb foods and snacks has created many more great-tasting options. Congratulations fellow low-carb followers, your time has come and it's here to stay! Hence, I present you with Low-Carb Cocktails.

Because I enjoy an occasional alcoholic beverage myself, I've been perfecting low-carb cocktail options for some time now. Of course, like most things in life, we must exercise a certain amount of moderation, especially regarding alcohol consumption. That's why we'll be discussing some of the effects of alcohol and how our body metabolizes it.

It's my sincere wish for you to enjoy the wonderfully delicious low-carb cocktails you're about to experience in this book. Whether you're on your way to your weight loss goals or just want to maintain without all the sugar, this book is for you.

Oh, by the way! More exciting news! This book also includes many mouth-watering protein-rich snacks sure to be the hit of any low-carb cocktail party!

So get out the blender, call your friends, and celebrate! Remember, you deserve to be both healthy and happy.

One Final Note: The low-carb cocktail program is subject to modifications based on the developments of new recipes, suggested alcohol choices, sugar-free sweeteners, syrups, mixers and low-carb products. This book contains information that is current at the time of printing. For the latest updates and information on new products, existing products and links on where to buy these products online or at various retail outlets, visit our website at: www.lowcarbcocktails.com.

Be safe, have fun and drink responsibly!

Yours in Total Health,

Dr. Doug

    Low Carb Cocktails

    After trying the delicious recipe that was in People-Your Diet magazine, I went to Barnes & Noble and purchased six books. There are many guilt-free cocktails in the book and I'm looking forward to tasting more cocktails throughout the holidays. This attractive book is the perfect size, and will make a wonderful gift.
