As stated, it's hard to find a decent HFLC book. This one was recommended to me - overall good inspiration. Previously I've been adapting low GI and protein recipes.
Presentation-wise - This feels a little spartan, lacking lots of pictures, there are pictures, just not enough for me.

I'm sure others are quite happy with the text to picture ratio.

- I admit it, I often eat with my eyes first.

Some nice recipes but HATE that she includes Splenda (as an ingredient. Would not have bought the book had I known.

I was excited about this one, but ultimately sort of let down. Not enough photography, too much Splenda. :/

Great book with great recipes for someone on a Low Carb/High Fat diet. It’s hard to find books that are low carb that aren’t doing high protean and low fat. I’m on a High fat and moderate protean diet and feel great doing so and I think this book can be thanked for it. It’s helped me rethink how I make things, when I am craving Lasagna I don’t cheat I reach for this book. The recipes are easy to follow along and taste great.

This is good if you'd like to eliminate sugar and flour from your diet. And many of the main dish and side dish receipes are good, even for people without dietary restrictions. The author is the chef of a well-known Vancouver BC restaurant, and has many years of cooking and teaching experience. It shows.

A STAPLE of my low carb cooking shelf. Some of the recipes didn't come out, others I had to tweak, but overall I have to rate this book as revolutionary and inspiring.

Recommends it for: Eaters, not just low-carbs.

The recipes in this book are very tasty. If you can't do wheat or sugar, check it out (literally from the library, becuase it's impossible to find a copy under $50).
