    I am not sure of the wisdom of following the advice of this book

    I am not sure of the wisdom of following the advice of this book whole-heartedly. The science behind following a completely low-carb diet seems faulty to me. On the other hand, I do eat far too many carbohydrates, so I have worked a good number of these recipes into my diet. They are delicious! Whether or not the science is sound, the recipes are great, and they make for a perfect addition to a healthy diet.

    Having never tried a low carb diet, I found this book to be very informative and useful.  It clearly spells out why the diet holds specific benefits such as alleviation of depression and reduction of the risk of diabetes as well as weight loss.  The book also contains a seven-day meal plan and excellent recipes, which have served as inspiration for a few new vegetables to grow in my garden this summer.   This book is a really great introduction to the overall way of eating.

    This book provides more information about low-carb diets than recipes. If you are new to low-carb diets, it has a wealth of information on the science it claims supports the effectiveness and health benefits of low-carb diets, but does not include references to the research on which the opinions are based. This is a good book for someone seeking general knowledge about low-carb diets and a few recipes for each meal to get started. But the number of recipes is limited.

    The layout is simple and relatively easy to use. All the technical information is in the beginning. Then recipes. I kind of wish there was an index at the back with a list of all the recipes, regardless of the meal to which they belong. But still a useful reference.

    Great book! Very well written and the way it’s laid out makes it really easy to follow. And the way the authors explain the way the body actually uses carbs and the difference between good and bad carbs really makes sense now!

    Low-Carb Diet for Beginners is a great resource, full of wonderfully delicious recipes to try, that will aid anyone in the start of low carb eating. But it’s not just a recipe book. It offers some great tips on low-carb dieting, busts up some myths about low carb eating, and gives us a reason why lowering carb intake is a better physiological means to weight loss and health benefits rather than simply giving up the calories for a time. It’s well worth the read and well worth the try.

    Low-carb dieting is the way to go if you follow these well planned out weekly recipes.  This book explains the benefits and even negates some of the myths that go along with adopting a low carb diet.  I appreciated the focus on not eating white grain products, and the revelation of the secret large amounts of sugars that can be found in some wines!

    This book not only enlightened me on how to adapt a Low Carb Diet, but also how to identify its different forms. I heard rumors that it can cause osteoporosis. Three of my four grandparents developed osteoporosis, so I didn’t want to start a plan that would make me feel better now, only to be worse in my advanced ages. Luckily, this book also showed me why low carb diets can be attributed to it and how to stay away from those factors. I will be eating my Bacon-Chile-Cheese Bites with Pecans comfortably and without future worry.

    The difference between a good carb and a bad one? It' s fiber!

    The difference between a good carb and a bad one? It' s fiber! The more fiber a carb has the slower you will become hungry and it gets better! You will have more energy! More nutrients will be provided to your overall system when you begin your low carb diet. Good carbs consist of vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and grains. The general rule of thumb for a bad carb is: if it's white, then don't eat it. Flour, bread, rice, potatoes, sugar are all prime examples of the bad carbs. However, begin by adding some of the good carbs to your meals like beans, nuts, broccoli, zucchini, leafy, green salads and begin your mornings by eating oatmeal. So when your mom told you to eat your veggies, she knew what she was talking about! The Low Carb Diet for Beginners provides a scientific explanation of why the good carbs are good for you. You don't have to be an athlete to consume large quantities of carbs, but there are good ones that you can start eating and start enjoying the health benefits. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to become healthier and who wants to feel better.
