    I borrowed a copy of this cookbook from a friend. My husband and I had already been on the Atkin’s diet for a month and I was thrilled with the amount of weight and, more importantly, inches we had lost, but was getting a little tired of eating the same foods again and again. Over a weekend, I tried a lot of the recipes in the cookbook while we were at our cabin. My cooking utensils and ingredients were slightly limited there in the Northwoods, but I made some slight variations (i.e. substitute a little onion for scallions, skip the white wine, etc.) and we proceeded to eat like pigs while sticking to the diet. After reading through the recipes and learning substitutes for high-carbohydrate ingredients, I can adjust recipes in my regular cookbooks with the same satisfying results. We have actually been eating better tasting meals than before the diet because I enjoy the challenge of cooking rich meals while maintaining our weight loss. The best part of the cookbook for me was the desserts. I rarely cooked desserts before going on the Atkin’s diet because they are so fattening. I made a few small adjustments to the cheesecake recipe and came up with the best darned cheesecake I have ever eaten. Even had it for breakfast to feel truly decadent. Another happy surprise was that unsweetened chocolate is not that high in carbohydrates. The only disappointing recipes I tried were those that contain soy flour. Soy flour, not surprisingly, tastes like soy beans and does not want to mix into liquids. The book also mentions tofu flour which is not readily available at grocery stores and probably tastes like beans. As the recipes call for so little flour of any kind and we are now in the maintenance sequence of the diet, I think a little “cheating” is in order. Try the recipes in the book, then get creative!

    The receipes in this cookbook are good … but they duplicate the recipe section in his book, Dr. Arkins’ New Diet Revolution. I was surprised not to see new recipes, and disappointed to see that he had re-vamped some of the recipes (from the book) to require we buy HIS products, as ingredients. Not to be ignored, however.

    My wife and I have used the Atkins Plan. I have lost 40 pounds, and she has lost 60 pounds (both in about 10 months). We looked at the original ‘New Diet Revolution’ book, and at this recipie book. We noticed that THIS book includes a section that describes the diet, so we bought THIS book over the other. This gave us BOTH the diet, and the cookbook simultaneously. It has been worth 100 times what it cost. I suggest that you can buy this book alone, and ignore the original. This diet is a lifestyle change–make sure you are willing to commit for at least two weeks to see impressive results. You wont be sorry. Best of luck to you all.

    For the cooking impaired, this is not the book for you. Although I am delighted with his Diet Revolution book, I am displeased with his cookbooks. They are anything but simple. I found some of the ingredients difficult to locate where I live. I had hoped for something simplier. Like many people today, I am incredibly busy with family and work. I don’t have time to chase down ingredients and spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The cookbook is collecting dust on top of my refridgerator now.

    As one who has maintained a 60-pound weight loss for over four years and achieved optimum health thanks to Atkins diet, normally I’d expect to give ten stars to anything from Dr Atkins. Nontheless, unless one is a gourmet with a spice rack to rival that of Julia Child, most of the recipes are beyond one’s reach: time consuming, intricate, and requiring much preparation time.
