This is the BEST DIET EVER! It is better than Atkins and the "new" South Beach Diet. Play Your Carbs Right!...With The Brennans is so easy to follow. I lost 20 pounds in only 9 weeks by eating delicious food and following delicious recipes. Plus, even when I cheated, the diet wasn't ruined - I just had to account for it. Truly, this is a realistic way to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle!

As a big fan and visitor of New Orleans, I jumped for joy when I saw the Brennans had written a low carb cookbook. About 80% of the recipes in this book are sure-fire successes -- they're easy to make, bursting with restaurant quality flavor, and most are quite low in carbs. I'd have to even say this is the best of the four low carb cookbooks I own. But here are my problems with the book:
1. All the desserts use Sweet and Low, not Splenda. A dessert made with Sweet and Low is more like a punishment than a treat -- sorry, Brennans.
2. A good editor could have made the book so much better by eliminating phrases like "bake until soft" by replacing it with "bake for ____ minutes." There are lots of little sloppy lapses like this throughout the book. There are also recipes where ingredients will be mentioned in the steps of the recipe that aren't listed in the ingredient list -- so you have no idea how much to use or even if it's a typo.
3. The Brennans are not health professionals and should really spare the diet advice and just give us more recipes. Anybody cooking with this book has undoubtedly done his or her homework on the low carb lifestyle and doesn't need a couple of gourmands instructing them on how to eat to be healthy.
I wish the Brennans would put out a second edition of this book and fix the errors in it. It has the potential to be a superb book! I do recommend it now -- heartily -- but think it could be so much better than it is.

My wife and I are avid fans of the Brennans' other diet cookbooks, Sugar Bust For Life! Parts I. and II. However, I, with little self-restraint, found myself eating Sugarbuster friendly, but eating too much. I was ecstatic to hear about the Brennans' new book, Play Your Carbs Right! The concept was exactly what I was looking for. A diet that helps big eaters, like myself, enjoy good food, using a simple and realistic daily carb intake formula. I had no doubt that the recipes the Brennans offered would be as delicious as those in their previous books - and to top it all off - for each recipe, the Brennans have done all of the carb counting for you!

After months of struggling with Atkins, a friend suggested I try Play Your Carbs Right! Now, I can eat sensibly and smartly and stop feeling horrible about myself after one slip! The Brennans offer delicious and easy to prepare recipes, as well as a realistic approach to losing weight. Suddenly that New Year's Resolution doesn't seem so far-fetched after all!
