    Excellent Book for Vegans to Lacto-Vegetarians and others, January 23, 2007
    This review is from: The Vegetarian Low-Carb Diet: The Fast, No-Hunger Weightloss Diet for Vegetarians (Paperback)

    While I’m neither a vegetarian or a vegan, I did want to have more vegetables in my low carb high protein diet. Rose Elliot did a great job on this book. The book is well balanced with readable information, very useful quick reference charts, menus, recipes, a few encouraging testimonies along the way. She does provide vegan alternatives to the lacto-vegetarian choices. And, best of all, it is an easy inexpensive way to lose weight on a low carb diet.

    Her commonsense approach to recipes means you can make them with food typically on hand and quickly. Typically, most of the prep work can be done in a few minutes. And, you can expand on them as you learn the basic techniques. As I’ve worked my way through the book, one of my favorite recipes is her spaghetti squash using cream cheese with spices.

    It literally only takes ten minutes to steam the squash in the microwave then fold in the cheese with spices. You can use already prepared cheese with herbs and spice mixes from the store. Or, you can use Philadelphia cream cheese and have your own ethnic flavors from Mexican to Indian, to Italian Garlic-Parmesan etc. And, you can use almost any steamed vegetable that has been thin sliced. It is a nice break from tomato sauces and there are never any leftovers.

    This book is definitely a keeper!

    This review is from: The Vegetarian Low-Carb Diet: The Fast, No-Hunger Weightloss Diet for Vegetarians (Paperback)

    The concept behind the book is sound. A reduction of calories and carbs equals a reduction in weight. First the water goes and then over the 14 day period, fat. I lost 5 lbs in two weeks. This doesn’t sound like much but it is the final 5 lb ceiling that I have never managed to shed despite trying long hours of exercising and any number of diets.

    The recipes in this book are, sadly, incredibly bland and unimaginative with a heavy reliance on eggs and cheese (or tofu). I was so bound up that I was having painful intestinal cramps. The solution was to eat more fibre such as endive, celery, spinach or bran. But again, all consumed with little or no flavoring (the bran tasted like ground cardboard).

    At the end of the 14 days, I was sick of the eggs and cheese. And there was an additional problem of what to do if you wanted to continue on a reduced carb diet. I felt I could not adapt the recipes if I wished to continue.

    Many meat eaters think that vegetarians have an incredibly limited diet, lacking in variety. Most vegetarians know this is not true (although I am often amazed that some vegetarians themselves think that all they can eat is a salad). This book does not dispel that myth. There are other books available that are filled with inventive flavorful recipes(eg. Vegan Vengeance). Now all we need is one that has flavorful reduced carb recipes.

    I bought this book 2 weeks ago and I’ve already lost 7 pounds and I haven’t been hungry once. The recipes are great, the layout is easy to follow, and it’s completely changed the way I eat. I’ve been looking for a good vegetarian diet book for a while and finally found it!
