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 http://www.CarbSmart.com, 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

I have dozens of family favorites from each of her books. I'm never at a loss for something to cook.
Can't wait to receive her new slow cooker book.
She warns that the low-carb processed foods that are showing up on the grocery store shelves are STILL mostly processed (low-carb) junk food. You shouldn't try to duplicate your standard American diet just by substituting low carb versions of junk food. Low carb is about getting back to basic,unprocessed, "REAL" foods and not just about counting the carbs in food. She believes in LOW carb, not no carb. She also mentions that you might need to keep an eye on calories, (although you can eat a lot more calories on low-carb than you ever could on low-fat and still lose weight).
The recipes in this book look really good. Some of the recipes listed on the back cover are Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps, UnPotato and Sausage Soup, Mexican Cabbage Soup, French Toasty Eggs, Chipotle-Cheese Fauxtatoes, Chili Relleno Casserole, Baked Sole in Creamy Curry Sauce, Swedish Meatballs, and Easy Low Carb Fudge.
I've been eating low-carb for over 6 years and am convinced that it's a very healthy way to eat. I've had my cholesterol checked 9 times in 6 years and it's improved and remains good from eating this way. It's great to be able to eat good food that fills you up and keeps you full for hours and still be able to lose weight.
This book would be very helpful to anyone following a low-carb way of eating. I would definitely recommend this book.
One thing about Dana's books: there's something for everyone! She has many vegetarian dishes, and stuff like graham crackers and spoon bread, that help people realize there's more to low carbing than bacon with bacon. And using her great instructions, I'm finally making omelettes like a pro.
This is a great gift for good cooks, and those, (like me) who are aspiring to that state. And the ingredients aren't that exotic...most of the recipes use ingredients you have around anyway.
All in all, a fantastic followup.
