Good Taste As Well As Good Sense,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: George Stella's Livin' Low Carb: Family Recipes Stella Style (Paperback)
I am a Type II diabetic, & over 50, with over 100 pounds to lose. For the past year, I've tried to lose weight, unsuccessfully. I had watched George Stella on the Food Network, and enjoyed the recipes. I had tried Atkins, managed to bore myself into a coma, get constipated, and actually gain weight. But what I noticed from watching George (besides his family's truly inspirational success losing weight) was the inclusion of vegetables, fruits, and above all, flavor. I love to cook, and this was the first time when going low carb made sense to me. It's easy to "shop the outer aisles" & work with the "approved" list of ingridients. I bought this cookbook, and the newest one, and am happily cooking my way to good health. All I can say is try the cheese cake recipe. No deprivation here!
