One look through this book and — whether you're on a low-carb diet or not — you will find your taste buds tempted! The 250 decadent recipes in this book are arranged simply by category: Beef and Veal, Lamb, Pork, Poultry, etc. Richard and Rachael Heller wisely suggest that these recipes "should not make up your entire eating program. These foods are meant to be consumed in combination with other balanced foods everyday."

Introduction


Hello!

Welcome to The Carbohydrate Addict's Cookbook!

We're glad you found us!

We have developed each of the recipes in this book to bring you a wide variety of exciting, new, delicious, and easy low-carbohydrate meals.

Any of the recipes you find in this book can be included in low-carbohydrate meals in all of the following:

The Carbohydrate Addict's LifeSpan Program

The Carbohydrate Addict's Diet

The Carbohydrate Addict's Healthy for Life Plan (formerly known as Healthy for Life)

Carbohydrate-Addicted Kids

The Carbohydrate Addict's Healthy Heart Program

These recipes can be enjoyed on all of the following as well:

Atkins diets
Protein Power programs
The Zone programs
Sugar Busters diets
or any other low-carbohydrate eating program.


Important Note: Our programs are NOT low-carbohydrate diets. We do NOT ask you to restrict the amount of carbohydrate you take in each day.

On our programs, balanced carbohydrate-rich Reward Meals will provide your body with the carbohydrate-rich foods you need and love every day, while additional low-carbohydrate meals will help balance your blood insulin levels.

A Very Simple Goal

For the carbohydrate addict, less insulin means fewer and far less intense carbohydrate cravings and a natural, struggle-free weight loss. Balanced insulin levels also lead to a reduction in the body's resistance to insulin, reducing virtually all of the insulin-related risk factors associated with high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, high blood fat levels, heartdisease, and adult-onset diabetes.

Each of our books describes an insulin-balancing program that incorporates a single daily well-balanced carbohydrate-rich meal (usually called the Reward Meal) and other daily meals and snacks that are low in carbohydrates.

Any recipe you find in this book can, of course, be included in any Reward Meal as well as in low-carbohydrate meals.

So sit back and read on!

Options, Tips, Health-Smart Choices

All of the recipes that follow are nutritious, delicious, and—best of all—they are legal! So enjoy each of the low-carbohydrate dishes that follow while reducing or eliminating your carbohydrate cravings, losing weight, and living guilt-free!

In the pages that follow, feel free to mix, match, and combine the dishes you find in this book. The vegetable dishes and protein dishes are meant to complement each other and provide you with a whole new world of choices.

While the choice is yours, assuming that your physician agrees, whenever possible we recommend that you replace the saturated fats in your diet with olive oil. Unsaturated fats such as olive oil have been shown to be highly beneficial for health and are much preferred over the animal fats and trans fatty acids found in butter, margarines, and hydrogenated cooking oils.

For those concerned with the total fat content of a recipe, appropriate low-fat alternatives may be used, but be aware that some alternatives can contain added sugars or other carbohydrates and are therefore inappropriate substitutes.


Where mayonnaise is a listed ingredient, unless your physician indicates otherwise, we prefer the use of a "regular" mayonnaise. Do not substitute "low-fat" varieties for regular mayonnaise; low-fat varieties of mayonnaise often contain several forms of sugar to replace the fat that has been removed. Added sugars can mean higher levels of insulin that can lead to hunger, cravings, weight gain, and increased risk for heart disease and adult-onset diabetes.

If you wish, the fat content of a regular mayonnaise can be reduced by thinning it with a little water. By adding a little water at a time and mixing well, you can reduce the fat content of regular mayonnaise by one-fourth to one-third without adding any sugar. It is surprising how little effect the water has on the consistency of the mayonnaise.

We have included some recipes that dish up several servings. These dishes result in easy leftovers or provide extra meals for the family (when a carbohydrate balance is included for non-dieters). Should you prefer fewer (or a greater number of) servings, remember that recipes in this book can be adjusted. If, for example, a recipe states that it serves four, and only two servings are required, then divide all of the ingredients by two. Likewise, for parties and celebrations, you are free to multiply quantities of ingredients by two or three or more!

Microwave ovens can be a real blessing for those who encounter serious time constraints in their lives. Many of the recipes in this book that may be frozen or refrigerated after preparation can be easily and quickly enjoyed when reheated in a microwave oven.

The guidelines of our programs can be adapted to comply with the current recommendations of the U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Nutrition and Health; the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services' Report on Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the American Heart Association's Eating Plan for Healthy Americans.

Here are some suggestions for incorporating these agencies' dietary guidelines:

Incorporating Low-Fat, Low-Saturated-Fat, Low-Salt, and Other Healthy Agency Dietary Recommendations into Your Program


Before incorporating any dietary guideline into your program, you should consult your physician. Only your doctor can determine which recommendations are appropriate to you and your individual health needs and how best to incorporate health agency recommendations.


Health Agency Recommendation #1

Eat a variety of foods.


To include recommendation #1 into your program: Add new foods into your low-carbohydrate meals and choose from a variety of salad ingredients, low-carbohydrate vegetables, proteins, and low-carbohydrate dairy items. Try one new vegetable each week and enjoy the new recipes you find in the pages that follow. It's fun to explore an entirely new world of eating while continuing to enjoy your long-time favorites.


Health Agency Recommendation #2

Balance the food you eat with physical activity. Maintain or improve your weight.


To include recommendation #2 into your program: Many of our programs include activity options that can go a long way toward helping you make gradual changes that can lead to healthy, lifelong habits. As appropriate, start with small steps and, before making any changes, check with your physician.


Health Agency Recommendation #3

Choose a diet with plenty of grain products, vegetables, and fruits.


To include recommendation #3 into your program: In your low-carbohydrate meals, be sure to include a wide variety of fiber-rich low-carbohydrate vegetables.


Health Agency Recommendation #4

Choose a diet low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol.


To include recommendation #4 into your program: As part of a healthful eating plan, choose foods low in saturated fats. To reduce saturated fats, choose olive oil instead of heavy tropical or other saturated oils and avoid saturated fats (found in butter, other dairy, and meats), hydrogenated fats (saturated or unsaturated) and trans fatty acids (often found in margarine).


Health Agency Recommendation #5

Choose a diet moderate in sugars.


To include recommendation #5 into your program: The basic guidelines of the Carbohydrate Addict's Programs and Plans will help you reduce your intake of sugar naturally.

By the very design of the program, your low-carbohydrate meals will essentially be sugar-free and, if at your Reward Meals you choose desserts made of complex carbohydrates like popcorn, pretzels, whole grain breads, or low-fat whole grain snacks rather than intensely sweet desserts, you can further help keep your intake of sugar low.


Health Agency Recommendation #6

Choose a diet moderate in salt (sodium).


To include recommendation #6 into your program: At all meals, choose low-salt varieties of canned and packaged foods as well as low-salt cheese and other dairy products. Limit the amount of salt you add while cooking or at the table. When you are out at a restaurant, ask for low-salt alternatives and, when possible, avoid smoked and salted products.

Health Agency Recommendation #7

If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation.


To include recommendation #7 into your program: When alcoholic beverages are consumed, they should be consumed only in moderation and only during high-carbohydrate Reward Meals. Reward Meal balancing will naturally help keep your intake of alcoholic beverages to a moderate level. Always consult your physician; diabetics and others may be advised by their physicians to refrain from all alcohol.

In Addition to the Agency Recommendations above, the American Heart Association Makes the Following Recommendations:

Total fat intake should be no more 30 percent of total calories;

Saturated fatty acid intake should be no more than 8 to 10 percent of total calories;

Polyunsaturated fatty acid intake should be no more than 10 percent of total calories;

Cholesterol intake should be less than 300 milligrams per day;

Sodium intake should be less than 2,400 milligrams per day; which is about 1 1 Ú4 teaspoons of sodium chloride (salt);

Carbohydrate intake should make up 55 to 60 percent or more of calories, with emphasis on increasing sources of complex carbohydrates;

Total calories should be adjusted to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.

Incorporating the American Heart Association's Recommendations into the Carbohydrate Addict's Programs:

To help adapt your program to better comply with the American Heart Association's guidelines:

Select proteins that are lower in saturated fat. For example, choose tofu (soybean curd), soybean-based protein, and fish rather than fatty cuts of animal protein.

When eating prepared foods, choose low-salt varieties; at home, cook with very little salt.

In order to be sure of including the recommended proportion of carbohydrates, choose fowl, fish, and tofu as your proteins. These lower-calorie proteins in combination with low-carbohydrate vegetables will afford you the ability of maintaining the 55 to 60 percentage of carbohydrate calories without overloading the carbohydrate balance of your high-carbohydrate Reward Meal.

If, in addition, you consume mostly high-quality complex carbohydrates, you can comply with the American Heart Association's recommendation to keep calories low and to maintain an emphasis on complex carbohydrates while keeping sugar intake low.

First Things First

Although the recipes in this book can be adapted to almost any carbohydrate-regulating eating plan, we urge you to select a program such as ours, which encourages you to eat, every day, the carbohydrates you need and love, and that are essential to your health. Remember, you don't have to give up carbohydrates in order to lose your cravings and your weight.

Since all of the recipes in this book are low in carbohydrates and high in fiber and protein, they should NOT make up your entire eating program. These foods are meant to be consumed in combination with other balancing foods every day.

Just one final note: It is important to remember that only the patient and physician in consultation can determine which health agency dietary guidelines are appropriate, and how best to incorporate them into an eating plan. We therefore strongly advise you to consult with your physician before you make any changes in your eating. After all, to borrow a phrase, you're worth it!

Recipe

A Recipe from The Carbohydrate Addict's Cookbook

Gingered Chicken
Serves 4

We stuck some ginger root, straight from the health food store, into the ground and watered it often. It sprouted new shoots and grew like crazy. We thought we'd cut off fresh pieces as we needed it for cooking but we've never had the nerve to cut it, so we still go to the market every time we need ginger and just enjoy watching our ginger plant grow. We think it's about to blossom (it makes us feel like our baby is giving birth)!

2 whole skinless and boneless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons chicken stock, homemade only, or water
1 1/2-inch piece ginger root, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 egg
1 cup olive oil

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Cut into strips 1/2-inch wide by 3-inches long.
Make a marinade of teriyaki sauce, chicken stock (or water), ginger, and garlic.
Place chicken in marinade and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning chicken after half an hour.
Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Drain chicken on paper towels.
Beat egg slightly with 1/2 teaspoon water. Dip chicken in egg mixture.
Heat oil to 350 degrees F.
Fry chicken pieces in batches one layer deep until thoroughly cooked, crisp, and golden brown. Be sure to let oil come back up to 350 degrees between batches.
Drain chicken on paper towels and serve at once.

    It's not what I was expecting

    When I ordered this cookbook I was looking for recipes for low carb cooking. This cookbook does not give a carb count for the recipes. On the first page of the introduction it says 'Our programs are NOT low-carbohydrate diets.' I am really trying to count carb and, as I have no idea how many carbs are in any of the recipes, I will probably return the book.

    Allright, go ahead and ignore that first review, it's obviously fake and written by some grunt worker paid to make the book sound good. But to be honest, the recipes are nice. Not easy or quick, but if you have some time on your hands it's worth a look.
