    Another magic diet book that seeks to separate you from your money. Want to shed pounds? Reading this re-hashed book won’t help. Eat healthy meals, get some exercise.

    I have read many books on health and nutrition but this one was boring with extremely tiny print. The information is valid, but the way they explained it was a bit technical. I have read the information on low glycemic carbs in other books and it was explained in layman’s terms. This book could not hold my interest. Then, when I decided to just turn to the recipes, they were filled with more carbs than I thought they would have. Nothing new, just the same old boring stuff. I returned my copy as I just couldn’t get through it. I think I could be more creative in the kitchen without this book.

    The quality of the paper in this book is very poor – its that yellow newsprint paper, no pictures, not the quality of other books this price. I bought three books on the same topic and this one was the only one that was a disappointment. Its hard to read the print because the paper is so dark and the print is small. It does have lots of information and recipes, but I haven’t read them yet and probably won’t.

    I was disappointed in the quality of the book itself. It is printed using rather cheap paper, and the type is a shade of grayish-green instead of black, making it harder to read, especially because the font used is small. I’ll have to copy recipes I like onto cards, because I don’t think this book will hold up long if I use it regularly in my kitchen.

    I was very disappointed with this cookbook. I was directed to it when I searched on South Beach Diet items. This cookbook has very simplistic recipes, many of which are high in refined carbs (!?). It is not an appropriate companion for South Beach or Atkins Dieters. If you had very little knowledge about cooking and foods, you may find some of it helpful. There are better choices, though. (South Beach Diet Cookbook for one.)
