Hundreds of thousands have embraced the low-carbohydrate lifestyle finding that a diet based on lean protein, fruits, and vegetables and less dependent on simple carbohydrates has helped them look and feel better.

The solution? Linda West Eckhardt and Katherine West DeFoyd have devised more than 100 protein-rich, low-carbohydrate dinners that will satisfy even the most demanding diners. Drawing on their experiences as award-winning cookbook authors, Eckhardt and DeFoyd have developed a tempting range of high-protein meals that are quick enough to make on a weeknight but elegant enough to share with guests -- and so delicious they'll never know they've been shortchanged on carbohyd rates, fat, and calories.

Sometimes the fat content is a little high, but you can generally work around that. Also, the dessert recipes rely on aspartame, which I don't consume now that Splenda is available in the U.S., but you can make substitutions. Very minor problems, in my book.
Highly recommended for anyone who eats meat and wants a quick, easy, and interesting dinner.
After having weight loss surgery I need to focus on a high protein diet. Though I am fairly creative in the kitchen I thought that it would be nice to not have to figure out calories, protein counts, etc., and also to get some variety into my diet.
This wasn't the right cookbook for that. Though the recipes ARE high protein they are not low calorie or low fat. Though the subtitle reads '500 calories or less' many of the recipes are approaching the 500 calorie mark, which is more than I want to "spend" on one meal (and this is just the main dish, not anything else).
Many of the recipes could have had their calories reduced and their nutrition improved by substitutions: milk instead of cream,low-calorie spread instead of butter, Splenda instead of sugar, for example. (Yes, I could do that on my own, but then I defeat the purpose of already having the nutrition information available.)
Though I believe the recipes are probably very tasty, this wasn't the cookbook for me.

There are several really solid recipes. There are a few I wouldn't make, but that is the case with any cookbook, and the ratio of wouldn't make to would make seems pretty low. Read morePublished 27 days ago by AJ
