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 www.HoldtheToast.com; her weekly blog digest goes out to over 20,000 readers. She is also Managing Editor of CarbSmart magazine at www.CarbSmart.com, as well as a featured staff writer. Dana lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and a menagerie of pets, all of whom are well and healthily fed.

Dana Carpender has made a serious study of adapting classic recipes from around the world to work with modern low carb diets. In this latest offering, 200 Low-Carb Slow Cooker Recipes, she proves once again that you don't need refined grains and sugars to enjoy healthful, satisfying food - no matter your culinary traditions or meat of preference. The key is quality ingredients, simply prepared.

Dana Carpender is a believer in keeping it simple and freshly prepared whenever possible. None of the ingredients were hard to find at my supermarket except perhaps the low-carb imitation honey that shows up in a few recipes. Of the dozen or so main dish recipes I tested in 200 LCSCR I can honestly say that seven were big hits with my family, a few were just okay and just one was bad. All of them cooked on time and just as predicted. There were some very satisfying desserts toward the end, with several variations on cheesecakes and custards that turn out splendidly in my slow cooker. Although I do not normally have a use for appetizer recipes, there is even a section for that - which contains an outstanding hot artichoke dip.

I am impressed with the author's diligence in keeping most recipes under 10 grams of net carbs per serving. Dana really does stick to the universal "rules" of low carb dieting; lots of veggies and meats, occasional artificial sweetening, a sprinkling of fruits now and then and a bare representation of grains and sugars -- and only when absolutely necessary for flavor, never as filler. She is good at innovating more nutritious subs for common starchy side dish ingredients; fauxtatoes (cauliflower) and mashed turnips are big players at her low carb table.

This is a really nice collection of slow cooker recipes. Since they've been modified for low-carb eating, you won't find a bunch of recipes calling for "cream of whatever" soup mix. What I like most about this collection is the recipes aren't all really high in calories. Sure, some of them are, but there is quite a variety and I appreciate that.

Most of the recipes call for about 8 ingredients. Some ask for more, a few call for less. They are mostly simple, with a few "worth the extra steps" recipes thrown in.

I think any home cook can find a few things to like or love here. You don't have to be on any special diet to enjoy these recipes.

I recently bought this cookbook, and already own her Carb Counter, 500 Low Carb Recipes, and 15 Minute Low Carb Recipes. I love her writing style, and she's "been there, done that", as far as low-carbing goes. I have never made something that I didn't like from her books, and the recipes are easy to follow ~ I am no fancy cook. The Teriyaki Ribs were so good my DH wants me to do this instead of grilling them! I made her coleslaw recipe from the 500 Low Carb Recipes to go with it, and my family was in love, and I am the only low-carber in the bunch! I think the best testament to Dana I can give is, I ordered the other three cookbooks of hers I didn't have, today. I have gotten rid of any other author's LC cookbooks I have, as well. You ROCK, Dana!!!

Dana Carpender never fails to bring you delicious recipes for "every" low carb(LC)lifestyle. You will find this book versatile with a garden of recipe choices you never thought could be done in a slow cooker! Everything from hot dips to desserts (yes desserts) that will leave you asking "are you sure this is low carb"? She is a gift to those of us who know LC is the magic bullet we've all been looking for... I've lost over 100lbs eating Atkins LC and doing moderate exercise (1hr/3-5x/wk) and Dana's recipes have been my saving grace! This book is worth every penny and praised for every delicious morsel I've consumed while keeping every one of those 100 pounds "lost"!

*Please note optimal weight loss occurs through maintaining an intake of 20 carbs or less "until" you have reached your weight loss goal, after that gradually increase carb intake to find your optimal carb count then stay there to maintain your goal weight* Very easy to do using the recipes in this book-yes even the desserts! As far as exercise, I didn't even exercise the first few months and I stil lost weight rather quickly. Exercise will speed you throught the process and of course tighten up your body; for me it equated to about 6-7lbs a week while I was very over weight, and 4-5lbs a week as I got smaller. Also keep it healthy - don't buy the processed LC snack foods, make them using Dana's recipes (see 500 low carb recipes and 500 more low carb recipes by this author for extensive choices), they taste better and don't have cancer causing partially hydrogenated oils! Very - very important to cut from your diet! Good luck and I hope this review is helpful.

I just described myself in the title of this review. I'd lost 45 lbs. doing Atkins 6 years ago, when my kids were small and had no actvities to go to. I gained it back towards the end of pregnancy 4 years ago.

I've known I needed to get it off, but now the first kids are in multiple activities, and it's very rare for us to get home before 7:30 p.m. With normal cooking styles, we'd be lucky to eat by 8 or 8:30! NOT good. And, when I'm tired, it just takes me that much longer to cook.

Last summer I made a serious effort and lost most of it again. But I couldn't find a variety of recipes, and when my kids' activities started up again this year, I had to stop, and (of course) gained most of it back. Low-carb truely IS a lifestyle, and I wasn't following it. I couldn't.

This spring, after experiencing danger signs in my health, I started looking around for a good low-carb cookbook to fit our family lifestyle. I decided I needed to have dinner ready when we finally walked in the door, so that meant getting a good programmable slow-cooker with a keep-warm function.

So many cookbooks SAY low-carb, but they aren't really. They're low-fat/low-carb (DANGEROUS when combined with low-carb), or their idea of low-carb is in one meal what people in Induction can eat in 3-4 days. I bought one slow-cooker book from another author, and out of the whole book, there were only 2 recipes that I could use! I returned it.

So I was thrilled to find this cookbook! Most recipes come in at under 10 carbs; many lower than 6. I can use most of them right now, in Induction!

AND: my kids love these recipes! Not a strike-out yet. We've used it nearly nightly for almost 3 weeks.
