From Hollywood to South Beach, the latest craze in the diet world is low-carbohydrate, high-protein meals. However, until now, low-carb cookbooks have been decidedly lowbrow, more concerned with prepared ingredients and overly simplistic recipes than with flavor or presentation. THE LOW-CARB GOURMET takes low-carb eating beyond the hamburger sans bun and explains how to maintain a healthy, gourmet lifestyle that will leave you looking and feeling great. Complex enough to impress foodies and discerning guests yet simple enough for everyday family meals at home, THE LOW-CARB GOURMET raises the concept of ,Äúdiet food,Äù to new culinary heights. An upscale low-carb cookbook featuring 70 recipes that emphasize vegetables, heart-healthy fats, lean protein, and eggs. Low-carb diets are rapidly gaining acceptance as safe and effective ways to shed pounds. According to market research, 17 percent of the U.S. population has tried the Atkins diet. Nearly two-thirds of Americans are considered overweight.
