This book is very bad,. Though low carb the recipes are high in fat and, believe me some are deep fried in lard...
Put it in the garbage.

Save your money! May 7 2007
By Mab - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Those who gave this a good review must not have tried any of the recipes.

The book title says extreme lo-carb meals on the go. It is none of these things.

A lot of the recipes contain low carb breads, pastas and tortillas which is fine if you have no weight to lose.

The book promises fast recipes but tells you in the introduction that to the author fast means that the recipes can be cooked in less than an hour. Many of the recipes require that you prep ingredients in advance, the author calls "make ahead".

Many of the recipes call for expensive, hard to find substitutions for sugar, wheat, and syrups.

The only good recipes in the book, which were few and far between, I already had from free, online, low carb sites. (I saw two recipes out of the whole book that I would try and already had seen them online.)

A huge disappointment and I was very excited by the reveiws given so I thought this would be a good resource for me.

Save your money. Search online for the same recipes without the expensive ingredient substitutes.

The best book for the money out there March 24 2005
By Sarah B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great little book at a very reasonable price. It is full of helpful hints and quick recipes that should appeal to a wide range of tastes. Most ingredients are common to the lo-carb kitchen, or would be fairly easy to obtain. The sweeteners Sharron uses are Splenda packets, SteviaPlus and Sweet & Slender (luo han guo) which are my three favorite sweeteners.

Recipes are bland Aug. 31 2007
By Tyler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I own this book and the recipes are bland. Most have salt and pepper as the main seasoning. This book also lacks continuity. What i mean is that each recipe seems to have a unique ingredient. So i cant just stock up on basics and prepare several meals from that. Each time i go to prepare a meal there is some new ingredient which i dont have and now have to buy.

Also some of the recipes arent "extremely low carb". One recipe was 10 effective carbs (ie. net carbs) per small serving and about 25 carbs total. My normal portion size was like 40 net carbs!

The BEST down to earth low carb book Jan. 29 2006
By Low carber in AK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I own several low carb cookbooks and this one has many great recipes and is not written in the usual stuffy medical jargon that is common place today. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the low carb lifestyle...it has a substitution chart and a glossary of unusual items...any low carber knows there are a lot of "unusual items" on our grocery lists, and it's nice to know what they are!

A workhorse of a cookbook! Jan. 9 2005
By lucky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What I really enjoy about this cook book is the simplicity of some of the recipes. It makes you wish you had thought of them. Many do ahead tips that will get you out of the kitchen fast with a meal that seems to have taken far longer to prepare
