This review is from: 500 More Low-Carb Recipes (Paperback)
Dana Carpender never fails to bring you delicious recipes for "every" low carb(LC)lifestyle. You will find this book versatile with a garden of recipe choices. There are new yeast breads, new deserts, and new main fare that will leave you asking "are you sure this is low carb"? She is a gift to those of us who know LC is the magic bullet we've all been looking for... I've lost over 100lbs eating Atkins LC and doing moderate exercise (1hr/3-5x/wk) and Dana's recipes have been my saving grace! This book is worth every penny and praised for every peice of bread and slice of cheesecake I've eaten while sheding every one of those 100 pounds!
*Please note optimal weight loss occurs through maintaining an intake of 20 carbs or less untill you have reached your weight loss goal* Very easy to do using the recipes in this book-yes even the desserts! As far as exercise, I didn't even exercise the first few months and I stil lost weight rather quickly. Exercise simply speeds you throught the process; for me it equated to about 6-7lbs a week while I was very over weight, at a lower weight it is around 4-5lbs a week for me. Also keep it healthy - don't buy the processed LC snack foods, make them using Dana's recipes, they taste better and don't have cancer causing partially hydrogenated oils! Very - very important to cut from your diet! Good luck and I hope this review is helpful.
