I think that as the low-carb dietary approach moves further out into the mainstream, we will see more and more of this ill-conceived effort to keep a foot on both roads. New or inexperienced dieters will be lured by this ersatz approach and won't see the pitfalls. Their blood profiles won't dramatically improve, their energy levels won't soar, and their weight loss will be ho-hum at best. They'll think the low-carb revolution was a lie.
It would be good if knowledgeable low-carb dieters protested this misguided approach every time they encounter it, and if they truly understand the principles that made the old high-carb/low-fat diet pose hidden dangers to the health of its devotees. In this case, letters to the cookbook editors might be a good place to start.
Our first read-thru of the book turned up several recipes with more than 40g of carbs "per serving" (and you know how skimpy these so-called "serving sizes" are, so you might as well double that number) other recipes called for more potatoes than protein (one recipe for a chicken stew called for 12oz of chicken "to serve 6-8 people." Wow. A whole 1.5 oz of chicken each? How generous!)
