Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The host of the Food Network's Low Carb and Lovin' It turns his popular show into text, punctuated by many exclamation points. He has a lot to be excited about: in the introduction, Stella offers his own case history as encouragement, explaining how he lost 260 pounds and helped his wife and children trim down, too, by avoiding sugar, flour and other insulin elevators. The first chapters share tips on building a strong support system and eating until you're satisfied, reading labels and shopping the outer aisles of the supermarket. Most of these will be self-evident to anyone who's tried to diet before; what Stella brings to the equation is a folksy optimism and a Dad-like sense of humor. Building on the Atkins diet, Stella's plan emphasizes fresh whole foods, and most of the recipes are starchless versions of casual restaurant cuisine, like Chicken Fajita Salad, Chili-Rubbed Baked Salmon, and Lemon Meringue Pie. Stella acknowledges the importance of moderation and shows readers how to prepare the occasional sweet, plate of pancakes or cocktail. While neither the diet nor the food are innovative, this work will surely resonate with some readers. (Jan.)

From Booklist

For the cook who wants to pursue a weight-loss regimen, the authors recommend a low-carbohydrate approach. Their basic advice is straightforward: eliminate the "white stuff" such as sugar, flour, pastas, breads, and other simple sugars and starches. They build from that starting point by emphasizing nutritious foods that offer good flavors and that are easy to work with. Among these, lean meats, poultry, eggs, and cheeses stand out. Lettuce substitutes for tortillas in a burrito-like wrap. Green-bean casserole uses homemade crisp onion topping, mushrooms, and sour cream to substitute for mushroom soup. Ground beef stroganoff fills the bill so long as it's served without a bed of starch-rich rice or noodles. The Stellas offer a replacement for flour based on ground almonds. Their rejection of sugar doesn't mean complete denial of sweets. Modern sugar substitutes have made many desserts possible, even a "breadless" bread pudding, which turns out to be a sweetened ricotta dessert. On this diet one may even occasionally indulge in a low-carb margarita. Mark Knoblauch

I'm a real Stella fan as you can read by my review of his first book. Either one will give you the basics to shed the pounds and keep them off with sensible low-carb life, not counting, but shopping wise and cooking really good food that'll work.

Again, my fascination and usage of George's books are especially for breakfast and lunch and snacks, for these and maybe you are the toughest for this reviewer to keep it creative and healthy. This collection is like his first, just outstanding. You'll enjoy such as: Riviera Omelet (with prochiutto or Parma; Southwestern Breakfast Bites; Cinanamon Toast Pancakes!!!!; Chirstian's Banana Bread Muffins; Uncle Al's Sausage and Peppers Casserole; Kim's Stuffed Chicken Breasts with Lemony White Wine Sauce; Thai Scallop and Prawn Stir-Fry; Roasted Pecan and Herb-Crusted Salmon; Forzen Custard Ice Cream.

Did I mention great Entrees and Desserts as well! Each recipe is not only given the needful nutrition breakouts and good instructions, but each further has "Make It Memorable" and "Healthful Hint" sections. These are really neat, as it has other menu recipe ideas and differences with those on rapid diet descent.

With some nice color photos and all the aids you'll need to keep on low-carb track, this is nice resource for our culinary time.

*THE* best cookbook I own and I own tons! I have celiac disease. I absolutely must follow a gluten free diet which means I cannot have the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley. I also cannot have anything derived from these grains which, in the "normal" American diet, means I cannot have a lot of things and eating in restaurants is almost a nightmare. With this cookbook, by George, he has it! Every recipe, but one, is gluten free and that one recipe can easily be made gluten free by substituting the wheat bran with any other GF flour as the wheat bran is only used to "flour" the pan. I absolutely cannot sing the praises for this cookbook long enough or high enough. Everyone should own a copy of this book - gluten free, low carb, reduced carb, low calorie or not! Get it!

After staying up until past midnight reading the book from cover to cover, I have got to tell you all that this book is a bargain at 3 times the price!

As the old saying goes, I laughed and I cried. George's sense of humor will keep you rolling, and his heart felt description of how his life has turned around, will make you cry. His love and dedication to his family shines through, even as he teases his family. He even calls Rachel a "weiner" in one recipe!!! (bbq baked soybeans!!! YUMMY!!!) ((jk)) I can honestly say, I've read zillions of cookbooks, and not a one of them has made me laugh and cry! My family thought I was nuts, reading a "cookbook" and laughing. But this is SO much more than a "cookbook"!! It is a testimonial, it is a roadmap to anyone wanting a healthy life, and it is a love story, plain and simple.

I am chomping at the bit to get to the grocery store and start cooking! Breadless Bread Pudding!!!! Six very simple ingredients, and what a comfort food! (I just happen to have all the ingredients at home for that one!)

What I love about the recipes is that there is everything from the simple "why didn't I think of that" type recipes to the elegant "serve it to the president" type recipes. And on each and every recipe, George gives a "Make it Memorable" recommendation of things to serve with it. How can you NOT make a memorable meal with this kind of help?

Each and every recipe has a complete nutritional breakdown, and every recipe has "Healthful Hints" as to how to cut the fat and calories without cutting out the wonderful flavors. How much more versatile can you get?

I can not imagine any type of cuisine that has not been covered in this book.

Well, I didn't "Laugh or Cry" like my friend Dinah did and considering her and I are two of the four success stories in the book - you might think we are bias - but George Stella's recipes are great! I particularly like the success stories in any "diet" type book or cookbook - not because I'm one - I swear! but I love reading them - and I wish there were more. I'm not a make my own ketchup type of person - considering I have two children, a house, school and trying to start up a business - but most of the recipes I will make and I'm sure I'll get great reviews. Buy his first book too - it's well worth the investment - even if you don't low carb - his meatloaf recipe is the best ever - it's very hard to make good meatloaf and this one is great. The Stellas are warm, genuine people and yes, maybe George is a low carb genuis :-). I would like to add one more thing - the desserts are great for OCCASIONAL treats like once a month when you are trying to reach goal - (have them more when you are on maintenance) but lots of people trying to lose weight - make the desserts and eat to abandon thinking it's low carb you can eat to your heart's content - you can't. Calories are calories - so a word to the wise - eat the meat, veggies, salads and occasional treat, drink your water and exercise - and you will be at goal in no time. I've lost 126 pounds in less than a year - and this lifestyle works. I feel great and much of the credit goes to Stellastyle.
