Dieters are increasingly embracing the concept that too much carb consumption hinders weight loss and general good health, but low-carb cookbooks have been few and far between until lately. In 1,001 Low-Carb Recipes for Life, food pro Sue Spitler and dietitian Linda Yoakam unravel the mysteries of this approach and show readers how to maximize its benefits by eating for good health — without sacrificing good taste. In clear terms, they explain how to eat healthily during the maintenance phase of a low-carb diet, why the low-carb diet works, what to eat or avoid eating, and how to keep the pounds off. They also discuss weight loss expectations and safety concerns, and provide complete nutritional data for each recipe. Also low in fat and cholesterol, the dishes include Caribbean Potato Salad, Sesame Shrimp Stir-Fry, and some surprises like Black Bottom Pie and Soft Molasses Cookies.
