From Publishers Weekly
This companion to Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet has more than 200 recipes. A recap of Gott's program explains why readers should eliminate flour and sugar from their diets, identifying the high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods that are made from them as major factors in the escalating weights of adults and children in the U.S. To avoid obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses, Gott shows readers how to replace empty calories with tempting alternatives for meals, snacks and desserts. Gott acknowledges that stress and limited time lead many to choose unhealthy fast foods, but the difficulty of finding no-flour, no-sugar prepared foods in many locations means followers must cook at home. Fortunately, these recipes (some contributed by readers of his book and nationally syndicated newspaper column) are quickly prepared. For example, a simple syrup made of dates and figs turns hot cereal into a special treat; crepes made with arrowroot powder are a delicious alternative to wraps; and meat, cheese and nuts, often reduced or eliminated on diets, are permitted. (A casserole based on an English meat pie contains ground pork; an adaptation of the Philly Cheese Steak calls for provolone; and Gott's sweet-and-sour nuts blends pecans, cashews and almonds.) Frequently, Gott's recipes include artificial sweeteners, which he says are safe and effective. (Jan.)

The cookbook has inspired my husband to cook new recipes and I'm impressed, not only some of those recipes are true delicatessen, but also easy to prepare.
The cookbook also has inspired us to create our own recipes, such as oatmeal crepes, they are delicious!. My son who is not on a diet ate two the other day and he never realized they weren't made of flour.
The spaguetti squash is another discovery in that book. I'm a fan of spaghetti, and although the consistency of the spaghetti squash fibers is not exactly as real noodles, once we mix them with the sauce and meat, they just taste like some fancy special wheat spaguetti.
My husband also has made some peanut butter from scratch and mixes it with oatmeal and splenda and they are a treat we eat sometimes.
The only way to know how good this diet is, it is by starting. Now we are feeling ready to start to do some exercise. Before losing some weight was unthinkable for us.
