Description from NetGalley:

Low-carb diets work—if the international success of the Dukan and Atkins diets has taught us anything, it’s that. But they’re usually hard to stick to and often unhealthy. Here Laura Lamont, a qualified nutritional therapist who introduced us to the revolutionary “Zero Noodles”, brings us a healthy new take on low-carb dieting. Laura explains how eating a nutritionally sound combination of controlled amounts of complex carbohydrates, protein and “good” fats (in foods such as avocados, salmon and flaxseed) at the right times of day can bring about healthy, long-lasting weight loss. Now there’s no need to deprive yourself of any food group—and you don’t even have to give up bread!

My thoughts:

I just finished reading the most mouth watering diet/cookbook. It’s called The New Low-Carb Diet Cookbook and it is written by Laura Lamont, a qualified nutritional therapist.

It’s a really smart book with oodles of full page illustrations. She starts briefly explaining the
diet and how it words. Lamont explains the differences in carbohydrates. She then gives 10 diet tips and has five colorful food charts to assist you in planning your meals. She tells you what the best foods are for breakfast and when to stop your daily eating. There are tips for eating out and when you should eat your heaviest meal. And the big question I want to know: “Do you have to eliminate chocolate?!” I wonder, though, why there is no mention of any of the dried beans such as navy, pinto, etc. on any of the lists or in the recipes?

There are over 75 unique recipes, each with a nutritional analysis. The recipes are easy to follow.  Some of these heavenly recipes are:
Avocado Crab Salad
Smoked Salmon Packages with Cucumber Dill Salad
Rich Chicken & Almond Tangine
Baked Pecan Stuffed Peaches
Asian Style Pesto & Tofu Noodles
Baked Pecan Stuffed Peaches
Nutty Chocolate-Covered Strawberrie

I’m going to the grocery store soon, so I’ve made my list and I’m ready to get started on this diet that allows dessert and drop 2 pounds a week!

I was given a complimentary copy of this book from Duncan Baird Publishers through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
