About the Author

Best-selling author Dana Carpender was startled to discover that limiting her carbohydrate intake not only helped her control her weight, but produced the health and vitality a low fat diet had promised but never delivered. Fifteen years later, she laughs at people who say “You can’t eat that way long-term.” Her eight cookbooks are the result of her realization that the key to permanent dietary change is the answer to the age-old question, “What’s for supper?” To date they have sold over a million copies worldwide. Dana blogs about low carb nutrition at; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart Magazine at, as well as a featured staff writer. She launches her internet radio show, Dana's Low Carb For Life, on Labor Day 2010. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is a compilation, not new recipes December 8, 2010
I was pleased to see Dana Carpender had a "new" book but less than pleased to discover it is a compilation of recipes from her previous low-carb books--not a single new recipe in it. Now, she apparently chose the "best" from her previous books--and I am fine with that--but this should have been noted on the cover.

Unfortunately, despite the fact that Dana is an absolute genius at creating delicious low-carb recipes that pass as the "real thing" (her chocolate chip cookie recipe and German Chocolate Pie comes to mind; both are unbelievably wonderful) she is notorious (at least in my opinion as a former editor) for the typos in her books. On her website she does have a list of corrections for previous books but . . . and this is the thing I absolutely cannot understand, why didn't she make those corrections before publishing this one?

Because this level of low-carb cooking requires some very expensive ingredients (nut flours, etc.) it's not a happy experience to be led down a wrong path that results in having to throw out something that doesn't work because the recipe called for the wrong amount of something or left out a critical bit of instruction.

Nevertheless, as I browsed the pages of this title, I encountered some of the exact same typos that had bugged me in the previous ones. And . . . when you see all the mistakes it raises another little worry: Could her carb counts be off? I haven't tested any for myself, but if recipes don't get proofread much, how about nutritional information?

Another quibble: She sometimes recommends products that later go off the market. Okay, that could happen to anyone writing a cookbook as you cannot guarantee the continuation of any specialty product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome option for the low-carbers among us July 15, 2010
By D. Nick
I picked up a book one time called "The Ultimate Low0Carb Diet Cookbook" thinking that there should be plenty of good examples in there to help me maintain a low carb lifestyle. While the book did have some recipes I enjoyed, there wasn't enough. So while I was scrolling through Barnes and Nobles, I came across this, and many other low carb books and spent plenty of time reading through table of contents. This book, without a doubt, not only has types of food I eat, but many of them have the ingredients I carry and look pretty easy to prepare.

As I am the primary cook in my family, I have plenty of options for every one (including for those who aren't on carb restrictions)

I am recommending this book to people I know who are carb restricted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rehash. June 5, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was excited to see that there was a new book out by Dana. Wondered why I hadn't heard about it on her web site, so I emailed her asking about it. (No response)

So then I find out, after having paid for it, that this is a compilation of several of her previous low carb books, all of which I already own. If you already have her other Low Carb books, don't buy this one. If you want to dip your toe into Dana Carpender's low carb cookbooks and don't own any of them, then this would be a good place to start. You can sample recipes from many of her books this way, and if you like what you try then you can spend the money on the other books to get a more comprehensive collection. (Either way it's about 100 recipes redone to be '1000')

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value - lots of delicious recipes October 4, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone attempting a ketogenic diet, my first time around I quickly grew bored with a diet of meat, cheese, eggs and more eggs, so I searched Amazon for low-carb cookbooks and decided on this one. This is the only low-carb cookbook I own and I find it extremely comprehensive. There are no pictures in the cookbook, which I would normally find to be a drawback, but it didn't hinder or hamper my perusal of the book and subsequent cooking in the least. The descriptions are succinct and descriptive, the directions are clear and the ingredients are common, plus the discussion of low-carb ingredients at the start of the book is quite helpful for newbies. The cookbook has a variety of recipes with different carb counts, which works well since low-carbers often have different daily carb count goals. A huge bonus of this book is that I had a question about a recipe and I emailed the author and she wrote me right back! (I didn't want to use soy powder in a recipe, so she gave me an alternative.)

As far as the book design itself goes, since it's so thick, the cookbook stays open without the need to put anything on it or use a holder. Anyone who uses cookbooks regularly knows how big of a deal this is, and I usually look for spiral bound cookbooks, but this one works just fine as a paperback.

The only revision I'd make to this book is adding information on the fat in each recipe (each recipe has a listing of protein, fiber, carb and usable carb info). I'm trying to balance my fat and protein intake, and that would be super helpful so I don't have to make the calculations by hand. I think I understand why the author didn't include that info-Americans are all together too fat-phobic.

In summary, this is probably the only cookbook I'm going to need for a long time-what a fantastic investment!
