The product arrived quickly and well packaged. But it is an old book and uses the old carb exchange system. The recipies allowed for too many carbs for my severe diabetes. I use a much more stict carb level akin to an Atkins system. This book I passed on to someone wanting to cut carbs but not severely. Using these recipies I would have run sugars that would have been much too high. I think the book encompanses older thinking that recommended too many carbs. It was an official opinion but one many now disagree with. Not for me but might be OK for some or milder diabetics.

the cookbook is written in a consumer friendly way, the recipes are detailed and easy to follow. the book is divided into chapters that indicate how many carbs are in 1 serving of the recipe. i am glad that i was able to buy this book from amazon.com . it has helped me. thank you.

I am so unhappy with the recipes. I am trying to sell the book myself, just to get rid of it. There's nothing quick and easy about it. The recipes call for ingredients not available in Michigan.

In reference to previous review-any diabetic, who has to watch their simple carb intake to live, knows that 1 carb exchange does equal 15 grams. That's the standard used by anyone, including doctors and dieticians for meal plans. As a diabetic, with a prescribed meal plan from a dietician, I am allowed anywhere from 45-75 grams of carbs for each meal, depending on which one of the three meals I am eating. This of course is also based on height and body weight. 20 grams of carbs per day is not healthy for a prolonged period of time. Best recomendation is moderation of a good mixture of fresh foods.

This cookbook is NOT low carb. The editorial statement says that in the book 1 carb equals 15g carbohydrate. Pa-lease, give us all a break, many low carbers do not use more than 20g carb per day...let alone 15g or more per meal.
