In the world of diets, low-carb dieting is still very popular. Cooks today are looking for low-carb alternatives that aren't bland diet book recipes. 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. As many readers point out, low-carb diet cookbooks read like they were written by scientists, not cooks.

Along comes another LC cookbook, sayeth the powers at Amazon, and lo I buy and test; for such is the compulsion of the dieting reviewer.

Not normally someone to pick up the books with titles that suggest I may have lower-than-average intelligence (guilty conscience perhaps?), nevertheless I couldn't resist the allure of "quick and easy". Tod Dimmick has written a cookbook that promises several things in the introduction:

* Use high-quality, low-carb ingredients

* Keep it simple

* Call for accessible ingredients

* Avoid processed foods

* Take advantage of quick cooking methods

* Keep an eye on saturated fat

* Control expense

* Add in fun and flavor

My job, as I see it, is to test how well these promises are carried out by actually performing the recipes in my average home kitchen. This time I tried four appetizers, three breakfasts (aside from the ever-present omelet recipes that *every* LCCB has, and which I am tiring of rapidly; besides, it's hard to mess up a basic egg/meat/veggie recipe if your cooking method is good), two seafood main courses, a meat loaf, a kid-friendly chicken dinner, a salad and three dessert selections. Additionally, there were a few dozen recipes that were so similar to recipes from other LCCBs that I didn't even need to try them yet again to know exactly how they would turn out - simple and classic dishes that are universally LC, like grilled steak with seasonings, wine, and butter or roasted veggie side dishes. In all, I feel confidently familiar with at least half of the recipes in TCIGTQ&ELCM.

My verdict: this book lived up to its promises, mostly. There were few enough ingredients, easy to understand instructions, and everything was fresh, unprocessed, inexpensive and accessible at my supermarket. Vegetables were emphasized in most main dish recipes, putting an end to the myth that LC means lacking nutrition and variety. There was a lot of leeway in choosing cuts of meat based on personal preference and budget. Nearly everything had a built-in guarantee of good flavor because that is what you get when you use a very few fresh, unprocessed ingredients in simple recipes that call for quick cooking methods. Looked at that way, it's hard for this cookbook to fail.

As for being low carb, my impression is that about half of the overall recipes were truly a traditional, Atkins-style low carb, the other half is what might be called "good carb", of the kind that you might find on a South Beach diet, for instance. I suppose that somebody on a "good carb" type diet would have no trouble with the low carb dishes, but a traditional Atkins dieter would have to stay away from the "good carb" recipes for sure. Some high-carb fruits were called for frequently in the breakfast and dessert sections: also, unprocessed bran was used as a substitute for many starchy things including bread crumbs, and while that's okay for some LC diets, it's troublesome for Atkins and Paleo diets. That does limit a strict low-carber severely, and it was a little disappointing to me, given the title that promised *low* carb. I just wish that the Good Carb and Low Carb recipes were marked as such.

I can sincerely rave that I loved what I tried (exceptions: anything that tried to imitate bakery items that are normally made with wheat flour. The pancake and cookie recipes blew chunks IMHO. Sorry Mr. Dimmick, but soy flour and other LC bake mixes just don't taste right). Even where it wasn't terribly original, this cookbook can't be faulted for taking advantage of the tried-and-true. Sometimes all I needed was a reminder that yes, stuffed peppers can be translated low carb, and that Oh yeah, classic salsa and hot artichoke dips are ready-made as low carb. What can I say, there is a fine line between Id__t and genius.

Tod Dimmick books are beyond helpful; they are also fun, creative and realistic. With nearly 250 recipes, Tod has branched out into the Low-Carb lifestyle. Each recipe also provides a complete nutritional analysis for carbs and protein.

The Italian Herb Omelet is delicious to make and has no carbohydrates, so if you skip the toast, you are already ahead of the game for the day. The "Magic Eggs" chapter brightens up your morning with recipes that include healthy ingredients like baby spinach (more like adding herbs than spinach) and portobello mushrooms and salmon.

By rolling roast beef up in watercress there is no need for rolls and the tuna salad wraps encourage you to enjoy tuna without bread. By just changing one aspect of a recipe, Tod succeeds in cutting out the carbs or making the recipe very low carb.

Some of the delicious recipes include:

Rosemary-Lemon Halibut

Sesame-Scallion Chicken Stir-Fry

Quick-Grilled Beef Satay

White Beans with Olive Oil, Gorgonzola, and Fresh Sage

Grilled Vegetable Kebabs

Iceberg Nests with Avocado, Bacon, and Tomato

Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes

Sherried Pears

Tod Dimmick's books always provide delicious recipes that don't take long to prepare. The extra information sections also enlighten and entertain.

In a motivated mood, I asked my doctor recently to give me a good diet plan so I could take off many unwanted pounds. He didn't skip a beat. He told me that a healthy, balanced diet with low carbohydrate intake and daily exercise works. I have been at it for over three months now and the results in terms of pounds and inches lost are excellent. What a great way to lose weight, in a healthy manner, with a minimal amount of suffering. I am not feeling hungry, although I still long for certain foods. Thus, I have been experimenting with various low carbohydrate recipes, as I have grown a little bored with broiled meats, fish, omelettes and plain salad.

Tod Dimmick's "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Quick and Easy Low-Carb Meals" is more than worthy of your attention if you are looking for good tasting food and meals with low carb counts. The book is designed for people on the go, who do not aspire to be Julia Child, and wish to adhere to a low carbohydrate lifestyle. All the recipes in this book, (almost 250), can be prepared in 20 minutes or less. From stocking your pantry through terrific ways to prepare breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizers, snacks - there are choices galore to make your meals more exciting and interesting. Low carb doesn't have to mean "deprived." There is even a section for kids, who are difficult to tempt, especially when their friends are gorging on fast foods.

I have had the cookbook for a little over a week and checked-out the chapters on fish, white meat, beef and lamb, bean cuisine, salads, veggies and desserts. So far, I have made: Low-Carb French Toast with Fresh Strawberries (yum!), Low-Carb Toasted Almond Wheat Cereal, and Florentine Scramble for breakfast; Ham and Swiss Roll-Ups, Turkey, Arugula and Almond Roll-Ups, an Open-Faced Tomato and Provolone Sandwich, and a Tuna Salad Wrap for lunch; Ginger Scallops, Broiled Lemon-Rosemary Chicken with Green Beans and Almonds, Red Beans and Rice, Herbed White Beans with Baby Spinach and Meatloaf for dinner; and Cheater' Crustless Chocolate Cheesecake (outrageous!), and Chocolate Chip Cookies. Needless to say, I feel much more motivated and less restricted as far as food is concerned.

I also want to add that exercise is so important in the weight loss process. Even walking for a half hour everyday will help considerably. I highly recommend this cookbook. It will help you to enjoy the process of becoming a slimmer, healthier person. Good luck and ENJOY!
