I started the Atkins diet about a month ago and lost over 22 pounds since. And this book helped me do it! There are so many recipes for beef, chicken and pork, I've used the book now for 3 weeks and haven't repeated a recipe (if I did, I wanted too!) and I haven't been disappointed. The book clearly states the guidlines for the carb count, and very few are over 10 grams per serving, so this book is a MUST for the Induction Dieters! I've enjoyed things like chicken in a white wine-cream sauce with mushrooms; a ham steak with a cream-mustard sauce; and chicken breasts stuffed with cream cheese covered with mozarella. My husband and I keep asking each other, "Are we really dieting! " This book is a must have for the low-carb dieter, and I assure you, you won't get bored! As my nine-year-old step daughter says -- "It's the BOMB!"

The reason the Atkins Diet has worked for me is that I love meat. So I was very pleased to find "Back to Protein," with a new assortment of recipes for main-course meats. (The reviewer who wanted more egg recipes in the book should have read the title before buying: it's "The Low Carb/No Carb Meat Cookbook.")
Lots of recipes for beef, pork, and poultry, and even recipes for less popular meats like lamb and game, plus some seafood recipes as well. The only gripe I have is that the recipes do not include actual carb counts, only a classification of low, very low, trace or no carbohydrates. Those who have to be extremely precise in their carb-counting will need to figure out actual counts on their own.
Other than that, the book is tremendous, as variety is something we all seek in our low-carb way of eating.

I have been put on a low-carb diet by my gynecologist because I am insulin resistant and have reactive hypoglycemia. I have purchased several cookbooks (including Atkins) and have found the dishes to be too "fancy" for my family's tastes (especially my 9-year-old stepdaughter). BACK TO PROTEIN provides quick,easy and TASTY recipes which the whole family can enjoy. I appreciate the short ingredient lists and the fact that the ingredients can be easily found in my local grocery store. We especially enjoy the ground beef and chicken recipes (mock pizzas and mock lasagna are terrific!) I also love the crock pot recipes for easy end-of-the-day meals!!
I can't wait until Mrs. Doyen writes another cookbook. I'd love to have some more crock pot recipes for chicken and roast beef! Thank you for a terrific cookbook which has made it much easier to follow a low-carb diet. I feel great and it is so easy to stick with my diet when given such a wide variety of meal choices.

If you don't have this cookbook in your collection of low-carb cookbooks, you may be missing many excellent ideas and recipes. There is a large section of recipes for ground beef patties (or ground chicken or turkey)which for me offer a needed change from eggs for breakfast. There are tons of chicken, beef, pork, and seafood main entree recipes, all quick to make, and very tasty. I have cooked up many of the recipes in this cookbook. Many of my friends who have been the beneficiary of the recipes in this book have asked where I got the recipe. I have sent a lot of friends to Amazon.com to get this cookbook! The chicken pizza is one of my favorites, as well as the chili without beans, and the lasagna recipe. This is my primary low-carb cookbook. It uses all normal ingredients I usually keep on hand. I don't need to buy special spices and condiments just to cook these yummy recipes. I might add I have lost 25 pounds in five months using these recipes and recipes from two of my other favorites: Lauri's Low-Carb cooking, and Everyday Low-Carb Cookery.

Great recipes - teriffic writing-good anecdotes-wonderful drawings - from head to toe this new cookbook is a total winner and hey, I don't like to cook. Doyen has crafted a real winner and I found myself reading it from cover to cover in one sitting. Then I made out a grocery list and started cooking. I liked the fact that you do not have to have a culinary degree to use all the good stuff in this book and for my meat loving family - Back to Protein is like an early Christmas present. Move over Julia Childs. Barbara Doyen is on to something here. Have some fun, clear your plate, get cooking - buy this wonderful book.

None of the other reviews have mentioned that at least half of the recipes use wine or beer as one of the ingredients. If you like cooking with alcohol, it's a great cookbook. If you don't cook with alcohol, there are still over 200 very yummy recipes for you to try.
