Dr. Atkins was right all along: It's not fat that makes us fat but carbohydrates. Though the government has tried to prove that fat is the cause of obesity. But scientists have proved over the past five years that if we eat less carbohydrates not only will we lose weight but we live longer. The most common reason that people abandon their diet is that they get bored. The recipes include snacks, breads, muffins, side dishes, entrees, cookies, cakes and much more. An entire chapter is dedicted to low-carb substitute ingredients such as fats and oils, flour substitutes, liquids, seasonings and sweeteners.
