In the world of diets, low-carb dieting is still very popular. Reformed from its early no-carb version, today's low-carb diet relies on cutting down carbohydrates in your diet and replacing them with protein. Numerous diets today-and even some diabetic diets-rely on cutting carbohydrates. Cooks today are looking for low-carb alternatives that aren't bland diet book recipes. The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Low-Carb Meals, Second Edition has lower carb recipes and more vegetarian and vegan selections than before.

As many readers point out, low-carb diet cookbooks read like they were written by scientists, not cooks. Enter cookbook authors Lucy Beale and Sandy Couvillon with more than 330 taste-tempting recipes for low-carb alternatives. Moreover, the recipes have additional nutritional information-not just carb/gram data but also protein replacement data and complex and simple carbohydrates nutritional information. With everything from breakfast (egg dishes, of course) to late-night snacks, Beale and Couvillon offer hundreds of delicious recipes for the die-hard dieter and health-conscious cook that appeal to the family and are easy to make. This cookbook even offers fantastic salads, bread and pasta recipes, grains, potatoes, rice, desserts, fruit options-and even an entire chocolate chapter.
