Overview

From the top-selling author of The Good Carb Cookbook comes a comprehensive and motivating guide to the good-carb lifestyle.

Lately, low-carb diets have been all the rage, but until recently little scientific research has been available regarding their effectiveness and potential health consequences. Now, studies are proving that low-carb diets do work and, contrary to popular belief, they don't pose health risks-if they are done right. But with so many diets to choose from, it is hard for many people to find a program that is realistic for their lifestyle and to which they can adhere.

Nationally recognized nutritionist Sandra Woodruff demystifies the process and explains how anyone can tailor a low-carb plan to their individual needs to achieve long-term weight loss. She provides hundreds of delicious recipes, innovative menu plans, instructive cooking tips, and helpful advice for eating out. The healthy eating plan in Secrets of Good-Carb/Low-Carb Living includes lean proteins, healthy fats, and good carbs to not only lose weight but also to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels and help correct metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance. Now anyone can get better results from their low-carb diet or formulate a new eating plan specifically for their needs. With Sandra Woodruff, low-carb living never tasted so good!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Woodruff (The Good Carb Cookbook; etc.) is a dietician and nutritionist who eschews the Atkins diet's controversial no-carbohydrate, high-fat, no-exercise-necessary diet for a healthier, more sustainable approach to keeping carbs in check. Urging readers to avoid refined sugars and flours, she suggests sensible portions of lean proteins, moderate whole grains, lots of vegetables and allows Atkins-forbidden but nutritious fruit, stressing the importance of exercise. She explains the benefits of low-carb diets, the carbohydrate-insulin connection, and demystifies terms like "ketosis" and "glycemic index." Woodruff's approach is more vegetarian-friendly and holistic than Atkins or Arthur Agastston's South Beach Diet. Unfortunately, after the introductory chapters, the pages quickly begin to fill with skim-only material, such as charts showing the calorie count of various low-carb foods, a "Good-Carb Life Plan Pyramid," and banal, beauty magazine weight-loss hints like "get plenty of rest," "exercise for an hour a day," and, of course, when dining out "pass up the bread basket." The book's second half is devoted to uninspired low-carb recipes: Portobello Pizzas, Chicken-Pesto Quesadillas and Microwave Egg Scramble. (June 7) Forecast: Although Woodruff does offer an alternative to the two giants of low-carb eating (Atkins and South Beach), she is joining a very crowded marketplace. Total Health Care Partners published Beyond Atkins earlier this year, and Sterling will bring out Living the Low Carb Life in May. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
