    I love to cook and I love to eat. The problem is that I (and some family members) have gained a little too much weight. When I try to make some healthier meals I am usually met with ugly faces and not so nice comments about what is on their plates. The meals I've prepared from the recipes in The New Low-Carb Diet Cookbook have actually been met with interested faces and clean plates. Score! My "meat and potatoes" husband loved the Sesame Beef with Asian Salad and the Spiced Turkey with Goat Chee I love to cook and I love to eat.

My "meat and potatoes" husband loved the Sesame Beef with Asian Salad and the Spiced Turkey with Goat Cheese Burgers. Some of the recipes even incorporate *gasp* bread. This book provides a ton of information on the diet benefits of reducing carbs in your diet as well as recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even if you aren't doing an entire diet overhaul, incorporating a few of these recipes into your meal rotations will be beneficial to your (and your family's) health. ** I received this book in exchange for an honest review ** Read my full review here: http://www.ivoryowlreviews.blogspot.c...

Although the book presents a low carb plan by color coding food types, that system was oddly not used for the actual recipes themselves. As well, although there is a wide variety of dishes, quite a few were exotic, required extensive preparation, or harder to find/not in your pantry ingredients. The book is broken down as follows: the diet, breakfast recipes, lunch recipes, dinner recipes, desserts, and ingredient index. About 40 pages in the beginning discuss the benefits and information about a low carb diet. I was pleased to see that a lot of the latest findings/research was in there, debunking a lot of diet myths. The recipes follow and are broken down by food type (e.g., grains for breakfast or seafood for lunch). The recipes are cleanly presented and, though too many are lacking images, easy to follow with clear directions and ingredients (though I wish the ingredients had bullet points to make it easier to read them). Admittedly, for me personally, I felt the recipes were a bit too 'haute cuisine' rather than re imagining of the comfort food that did most of us in, weight wise. If I had cuisine tastes, I probably wouldn't have a weight problem. To improve the book and make it easier to use, I would have liked to see more labels on the recipes. E.g., a color coded system for recipes that are quick on prep time vs longer cooking (or even ordering the recipes by prep time), a different system for recipes that require specific/rarer ingredient shopping trips beforehand as opposed to those with stock ingredients in most pantries, and many more pictures. Only a few recipes have pictures and so we have to read recipe ideas rather than being able to quickly scan through pictures to choose the one we want for that meal. In all, although the recipes didn't appeal to my tastes, this is a well presented book with good diet information. Reviewed from an ARC.

    Although this ARC did not have the correct formatting and color photographs, the meat of the book was readable. I appreciated the explanation in the first 1/3 of the book on why low fat diets do not work, and the explanation of what Leptin is and how its important for diet success. The goal of this diet is to lose 2 pounds a week, and lose inches, primarily around the waist. This is a very desirable goal!! I found the 10 food tricks to be probably the most helpful!

Just following those 10 tricks will help someone to lose weight. I also appreciated the list of mostly veggies which the dieter could eat unlimited amounts of. The recipes seemed very un-intimidating with easy to find ingredients. They gave me ideas for how to tweak my current diet so it is a little more low carb. It seemed like the color photos were good too. I would definitely buy this book in paper and recommend it. I look forward to seeing this book in print with the color photos and color codes. Thank you for the opportunity to review this ARC.

    I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This book has turned into a great resource for me! I tried going completely carb free and could not maintain it. So this book has helped a lot as I now eat my carbs at breakfast, which prevents me from being ravenous by 11AM. The rest of my day is carb free which I am able to follow. I love the color coded meal plans, they are so easy to understand. The author also provides a whole page of "free foods" that help prevent that ove I received an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

Also included are wonderful recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For those non diabetics there is also a dessert section.

    An easy to follow and informative cookbook on both the science and the yumminess that is low carb living. I enjoyed the color coding of recipes, the easy to locate ingredients and the new recipes. Plus the pictures are gorgeous, if only I could make my food look as pretty as this!

    I have been considering another low carb diet so I thought I would look through this cookbook. There are some decent recipes in here as well as ideas as to how the diet works. There is so much to read through but it is also very informative.

    I was really excited by this diet until I got to the recipes. I have a nut allergy. This, like many other diets, uses a lot of nuts in its recipes. The Good The photos in the book are great.

The informative pages explaining the science behind the diet are in accessible language, The Drawbacks Too many nuts in the recipes The sample recipes all required a lot of cooking. When I'm detoxing off sugar, carbs and caffeine the last thing I want to be doing to baking my own bread for half a slice at breakfast. Most of the recipes had at least a couple of ingredients that I don't usually buy. This makes it more difficult to get the rest of the family to eat with you. The recipes were not colour coded to illustrated how the colour coded system works. I really expected the recipes to clearly model the system. I have bookmarked six recipes to try. However, I don't think that I will try the diet because I prefer to have greater guidance. Have a look for yourself. I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

A discussion on both the effectiveness of living a low carb lifestyle and how it compares to other diets was also provided. Easy to follow facts were given. Many tasty recipes were included along with mouth watering pictures. Some of the recipes were complex and required time. Others were quick with little prep time needed. I was extremely excited to see a low carb dessert section and even more excited that dessert (once a week) was part of the diet plan. Many of the recipes included nuts and may be an issue for those with nut allergies. The plan seems to be working for me as I have already lost 9 pounds in two weeks. Its also realistic and has been easy to stick with. My only compliant, if you can even call it that, is the need for MORE recipes. They were delicious.

    The section before the recipes was extremely informative, I am finding myself applying parts of it when I'm out, which can only be a good sign. The recipe pictures look great and the instructions are fairly simple to follow, however I have been cheating by using shop bought rye bread, to save a little time. All in all I really like this Cookbook, possibly because the deserts taste great and are not making me feel guilty :-) The section before the recipes was extremely informative, I am finding myself applying parts of it when I'm out, which can only be a good sign.

    This had some great information. The only problem I had with it, (and maybe this was because it went on my Kindle) was the name of the recipes seemed to be at the end of the recipe and it got a little confusing on what was what.

Probably the first one I was on was back in the dark ages, when my sister and I followed what was called the grapefruit diet, or maybe the Mayo Clinic diet, though it had nothing to do with the Mayo Clinic and a whole lot to do with 3 eggs, grapefruit and black coffee. Later I followed Stillman and Atkins, read those books, learned to cut out sugar, starches and how to count carbs. As a practically professional yo yo dieter, I have followed some form of low carb dieting for years. I looked over this book, Laura Lamont's New Low Carb Diet Cookbook when it first came out. It did not follow low carb dieting as I know it. I stuck it back on the shelf, where it has been nagging me for a review. So here it is. What I like about the beginning of the book is that there is a discussion of low carb eating, and some diet tricks that might be of use to a dieter. Not eating after seven is a good rule to follow. Some of these tricks are good, like using spices which are supposed to help weight loss. Some are not so good, like suggesting milk at bedtime. (A cup of milk has 12 grams of carb, about 1.5 grams of sugar per fl ounce according to the USDA. People who understand 'keto' would know better than to do this, because it would surely knock you out of ketosis.) Yes, milk can encourage sleep, but it is also too carby for a low carb diet. Inclusion of beets, carrots and onions on a list of foods on a low cal diet would make sense, but putting them on a list of low carb foods that you can 'eat as much as you like' defies low carb rules. (Beets, carrots and onions contain enough sugar that you should control them in a low carb diet. Yes, they are lower on the glycemic index than, say, potatoes, but they are still something a carb/sugar sensitive person has to watch out for.) The 'science' discussion has nominal value when an offhand instruction to drink bedtime milk contradicts good sense. Another problem is how the diet is laid out. There's a quick discussion of a five day diet, lists of foods, and color coding, but that portion of the book is rushed. Because I come from a background of counting carbs (such as Atkins' system of induction levels of carbohydrates that gradually increase not only help the dieter stay on track, but also to learn moderation), I feel this book rushes through the actual diet, then goes into recipes. Many of the recipes were also a problem for me, because my definition of low carb does not coincide with the author's. I have learned on my own how to adapt most recipes to be lower in carbs than a standard recipe. Not that I am special in that way; I am sure any avid low carber could read these recipes, and modify them to actually be low carb. It's not a challenging skill-set to cut out the starches, and maybe replace some ingredients with lower carb ones. I applaud that the author made an effort, but would recommend skipping the breakfast starches, and the dessert chapter. Some of the meat and vegetable recipes show promise. I only hope that other dieters come to this book with a history like mine, so they can weed out some of her advice(Trust me-banana smoothies are NOT low carb) which I believe is well-meant but mis-directed.
