I bought George's other book 'The Complete Low-Carb cookbook' and loved it because he uses ordinary ingredients and says so.
I ordered this expecting the same, but find some of these recipes require oat bran and soy flour. Soy flour has a bad reputation, grown on land heavily sprayed with glyphosate with dreadful extraction methods. The plant steroids contained can have oestrogenic effects and suppress thyroid function. Probably all OK in small amounts, but I would rather not use it. The other recipe's are OK, but too many American shellfish recipes. 'Take 1 dozen raw cherrystone clams', '1 pound of blue crab meat', '12 snow crab claws'....take out a mortgage for dinner!
I continue my search for good low-carb cookbooks. They are few and far between. Dana Carpender uses too many extraordinary ingredients, Atkins doesn't even begin -crazy portions and things like 10g onion in a recipe for 6.
I know what I am talking about, I have lost nearly 6 stone and controlled my diabetes. I am hoping to make low-carbing a way of life. The world certainly doesn't cater for us diabetics!

Shame about the soy flourReviewed in the United Kingdom on 20 January 2015

Good Low Carb recipesReviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 March 2019
Very useful book, but the dessert recipes generally have artificial sweetener added to them which does still have an effect on blood sugar.
Very good motivationReviewed in the United Kingdom on 9 April 2013
George is very ernest in his championing of the low carb way of life and it certainly has worked for him and his family, really amazing results. I do not like to substitute flour and sugar so a lot of the recipes were not for me, but they are very well thought out and sound delicious. It has given me several very good ideas for my own family cooking though.

Great tasting recipes!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 May 2014
The recipes are fantastic it's like going to a restaurant! The preparation makes you feel like a qualified chef! It's not complicated but you do need to plan and be enthusiastic and you will have five star dish! I love this book and yes it's worth it !
Love itReviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 July 2013
I am not a big fan of the pizza base, but made lots of the sweet recipes (my downfall and the reason why I switched to low carb!!) and they're really nice.
