I own 10 low carb cookbooks (Atkins,Heller, Schwarzbein, Donna Johnson,Fran McCullough, Lauri Randolph, Gassenheimer,Doyen, Donna Rodnitzky)and this one is the best! The recipes are tasty and very well written and formatted. Some of the other books contain a lot of gourmet-ish recipes I would not normally make, others have recipes that are too boring and tasteless. The Ultimate Low Carb Diet Book gets it just right. Main Course sections include Rise and Shine (breakfast), Hot and Spicy, On the Grill, Exotic Flavors, In the Main, Strictly vegetarian. These are recipes I would chose to make even if I wasn't on a low carb diet. She also has about a dozen dessert recipes. I could not stay on the diet without this book!

Finally, someone has the common sense to give those of us metabolically "unfortunate" types a GREAT book so we can make fabulous LOW carb HIGH protein diets at home.
If you're like me, you're just as frustrated when you learn most of the current protein diet books only tells us to "Eat meat. Don't eat bread, pasta or rice." (Like: Duh!)
Then this is cook book is for you!
The recipes are easy to read, and even easy to prepare. Even if you're all thumbs in the kitchen, you'll benefit from this protein cook book as I did. My hats off to this author! :-)
I mean no offense to the Eades books (authors), but there's lots of us out here that couldn't care less about "arocondic acid" or "good or bad acosnoids." (Even though I spelled them wrong.)
We just want to know the foods we should eat, and those we shouldn't if we want to lose weight.
This book DELIVERS!
I've lost 12 pounds this month alone and I'm on my way to losing another 60 pounds to get me back to 190 lbs by August 2002. WOO-HOO! :-)

This cookbook is simply amazing. When it arrived, I dog-earred 80% of the pages immediately and have been working my way through each of them ever since. There isn't one recipe I haven't loved and I'm eating better, not to mention losing weight, as never before. The recipes are easy to follow and for someone who never cooked, this has been a revelation. I enjoy cooking now; the time spent doing so is rewarding and fun. Low-carb eating makes total sense and this cookbook makes it all worthwhile.

I own many low carb cookbooks (Fran Mccullogh, Linda Gassenheimer, Atkins cookbooks, etc,) and honestly none of them compare to this book. this is just the best. With useful information, DELICIOUS and un-complicated recipies, that fit perfectly when doing Atkins or another low carb method to lose weight or as a new adopted lifestyle.
Highly recommended, I just LOVE this book.

My doctor sais I needed to be healthier while on the Atkins Diet because I was eating too many fatty foods like bacon and eggs. A friend suggested this book to me, and it has opened up a new world of healthy, low-carb possibilities. And the best thing is that they all taste great too -- especially the desserts! I also bought one of the author's other cookbooks called The Lowfat Grill. It's also great for low-carb dieters who want to watch fat intake too.

A great book, through and through. Ever since I got my copy, I can't stop cooking the delicious recipes. Buy two copies for yourself - one could be for you, one could be for your significant other! Another plus: very witty writing, a rarity with cookbooks. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
I have tried about 20 of the recipes in this book, and I'm ordering 3 more copies to give to my friends who keep borrowing mine. The crunchy biscotti (mandel bread) and delicious pumpkin walnut bread are unbelievable, people who don't care about low carbs love these desserts too, they don't taste the least bit "funny." It is really easy to stay on a low carb diet when you can bake and freeze tasty desserts like these. The meat recipes are good, and I like the author's creativity with vegetables; the garlic and pine nut spinach has been a big hit with my friends. Not all of the baked goods were spectacular, but it is nice to have some variety. I found the roll cakes to be a little eggy, but still good. I have lost about 10 pounds, I wasn't very overweight to start with, but I am eating lots of vegetables and feel very healthy with the help of this cookbook.

Format: Paperback
I ordered this cookbook based on the reviews, and ordered another called "Fabulous Lo-Carb Cuisine". I paged through both and immediately put Ultimate Low-Carb Diet Cookbook back in the box to ship back for a refund. There were WAY too many recipes that I wouldn't even consider preparing...not because they didn't sound good...but that they weren't quick and easy. Anything that involves trips to the "speciality" grocery store and a ton of ingredients and prep work is a turn off for me.
I instead kept the tiny book of awesome recipes that were quick, easy and realistic for my lifestyle. (Not to mention yummy)
This one was way too "out there" for me and unrealistic for daily use.
