Discover how to make low carb versions of your favorite foods and skyrocket your chances of achieving your weight loss goals by 300%!
Learn the secrets of low carb bread, cheesecake, cookies and ice cream to ensure boredom and deprivation won't derail your diet
From: Jackie Bushell
Dear Fellow Low Carber,
If you're following your low carb diet faithfully – but you're bored with your food choices, you've probably already thought about quitting. Thoughts of the springy texture of cake or the crunchiness of a cookie are weakening your resolve, and you're dreading how left out and deprived you'll feel at that social event next week when you'll have to refuse all those high-carb party foods.
You're probably also fed up with bacon and eggs for breakfast and wish you could have low carb bread to put your sandwich filling in. You'd just love to curl up on the sofa with some ice cream but you know it will send your blood sugar and insulin into overdrive and trigger carbohydrate cravings you can't control.
You know how hard it is to go back on the diet once you've gone off it, and you know that every 'excursion' makes your weight loss slow down or even stop. But sometimes, you have a weak moment and those feelings of boredom and deprivation get the better of you. You know that that's not the way to the weight loss of your dreams, but you can't help yourself.
What you need is a low carb cookbook full of quick and easy recipes for the foods you most miss. The ones that most low carb cookbooks conveniently ignore – recipes that are difficult to convert to low carb such as bread, cakes, cookies, ice cream, pies, sauces, quiches, rice dishes and desserts. A cookbook that will banish the twin diet killers of boredom and deprivation from your low carb way of eating.
When I discovered low carb dieting, it changed my life because it finally enabled me to lose my surplus weight – all 50 pounds of it – after every other diet I'd tried had failed. However, I soon realised that there were two threats to my new way of eating, and to the new "me" – the twin diet killers of boredom and deprivation.
How I longed for the springy texture of bread, or the crunchiness of a cookie! How I wished that I could make low carb bread so that I could take a 'normal' packed lunch to work or on a picnic like everyone else! How deprived I felt when family and friends were tucking into carbohydrate-laden foods at times of celebration or holidays, and all I had to munch on was my meat or fish, veggies and salads!
Then I made a crucial discovery. Low carb substitutes were now available for many cooking and baking ingredients. I quickly became an avid experimenter in the kitchen. Not for me a life of plain cooked meat, fish, cheese or eggs, green vegetables, and salad - my new way of eating had to have enough interest in it to keep me on it for life!
So I discovered how to make low carb sauces, pies, quiches, bread, cakes, cookies, desserts, ice cream, yoghurt and so on. It was this ability to make my own low carb versions of these foods that made the difference between going off the diet and staying on it long-term.
When you're doing Atkins or other low carb diets you can have much more interesting food than just steak and salad ...
It comes as a surprise to many people, but dieting the low carb way doesn't mean you have to miss out on your favorite foods! Just imagine being able to make 'sandwiches' once again, or cauliflower cheese with a thick, creamy sauce, or quiche with a real crust, or 'breaded' meat or fish, or chicken and mushrooms in a creamy sauce... Or what about scrumptious ice cream, yoghurt, shortbread, or even chocolate eclairs ...
You can still have 'normal' foods such as bread, quiche, pies, sauces, cookies, yoghurt, ice cream, porridge and granola cereal on your low carb diet!
So often I would hear new dieters say how plain and uninteresting their low carb diet was. But I knew different! Since being able to make low carb versions of my favorite foods had played such an important part in my successful weight loss, I felt sure that this would help others achieve their weight loss goals in the same way. That was why I decided to compile all my recipes into a cookbook.
Just in case you're wondering, my cookbook is equally suitable for a "low carb high fat" or "LCHF" diet. (Some dieters use the term LCHF to distinguish their diet from the low fat - and therefore very high protein - version of a low carb diet that some dieters mistakenly follow.)
Read on to see how the cookbook I developed as I made my journey to a normal weight will help you, too, stay on your low carb diet and ensure you achieve the weight loss success of your dreams.
Easy to make, original tried and tested low carb recipes
The cookbook is full of original, tried and tested recipes. In it you'll learn how easy it is to build up a basic repertoire of meals, snacks and treats which are just as delicious as their high carb counterparts. The recipes are simple to follow, quick to prepare and suitable for Atkins and other low carb plans, including LCHF. They're also suitable for low GI diets - since they are very low in carbs, that makes them automatically low on the GI scale, too!
So many low carb cookbooks are about meals or recipes that are easily converted to low carb by simply leaving out the 'carby' ingredients - but I was not content with that. That's why the Low Carb is Easy Cookbook concentrates on bringing you low carb versions of foods such as bread, sauces, cookies, cakes and desserts - the 'difficult' foods and recipes, which most people mistakenly think are impossible to convert.
Not many people know, for instance, that chocolate eclairs, or chicken risotto, or apple cake are possible on a low carb diet. Just check out the many other delicious recipes in the Cookbook that you thought were an impossible dream:

Your recipe book does, I believe, make the difference between success and failure on a low-carb diet and I am thrilled to have found it. I have a couple of favourites which I make over and over again, almost every week. JT, South Africa

I love your cookbook. It's by far the best I've come across. Thanks to your fabulous cookbook, it'll be an easy ride.
Keep making all this magic with all these lovely recipes!
Louise S, South Africa
What fantastic recipes, I'm really impressed.
An absolute godsend. Thanks for some wonderful meals.
Just what I've been looking for - simple and no obscure ingredients.
I would like to congratulate you on your wonderful recipe book, invaluable to low carbers. Would also like to thank you for your wonderful site and all your previous replies to my many queries, it is very much appreciated. I have steered many desperate and confused new low carbers to your fountain of knowledge!

The variety and simple recipes are exactly what I was looking for.
Wonderful recipes ... we have tried 2 of your mince (beef) recipes, and they are much nicer than the normal recipes.
I made the flat bread just now and it's very good. I altered the recipe a bit and did the editing - very easy to do and very effective. So far, I'm delighted with the cookbook. It's easy to access and use and the recipes are good.
With The Low Carb is Easy Cookbook, you'll also get many other useful features to make your low carb or low GI way of eating easier ...
Use metric, imperial or cup measures - You won't need an ingredient conversion calculator as ingredients are shown in imperial, metric and cups, so they are already converted for British, American, Canadian, Australian and all other Cookbook users. The differences between American, Australian and British standard cups aren't a problem either - the Cookbook explains which size is which and suggests an easy way of measuring out the right quantity, whichever type you've got.
You can even mix measures, unlike most cookery books - recipe conversions between metric, imperial and cups are exact, not rounded, in order to ensure that the carb count is always accurate.
Setting up a low carb kitchen - In the cookbook you'll learn the essentials of setting up a low carb kitchen such as store cupboard ingredients and kitchen equipment and where to find them. There are also helpful notes on many of the ingredients which may be unfamiliar to you.
Reference tables for common ingredients - These tables are incredibly time-saving, as anyone who has tried to weigh out small quantities of bakemix ingredients and calculate their carb counts will know. The Low Carb is Easy Cookbook's handy reference tables take the effort out of weighing, measuring and calculating carb counts for commonly used ingredients such as cocoa powder, cream cheese, protein powder, desiccated coconut, flax meal, sesame seeds, granular sweetener, ground almonds and soya flour.
Carb and low GI values explained - Reference sources and manufacturers' labels often give conflicting carb values, and the reasons for this are explained in the cookbook.
Learn carb values effortlessly - With carb counts shown for each individual ingredient, you'll soon get a feel for the foods you have to watch without having to run for your carb counter!
Printing your cookbook - The Low Carb is Easy Cookbook is designed for you to be able to view the recipes on screen, print out individual recipes, or print out the entire cookbook to put in a standard A4 or letter size ring binder on your kitchen shelf. It will even print the cover and section dividers for you. However, that's not all you can do with it. You can also use it interactively, like recipe software. Read on to discover what the cookbook can do when you use it as recipe software ...
Great site and recipes as usual.

I love the recent 'Christmas' recipes in your Cookbook.
Your recipes are also coming in real handy for my daughter who is on a wheat / gluten free diet.
My flatbread turned out good. The bread smelled really nice and was very tasty.

You can view these low carb recipes on screen, print individual recipes or print the entire cookbook to put on your kitchen shelf. But what makes it really different is that you can use it interactively, like recipe software as well.
Here are just some of the cookbook's interactive features:
Change existing recipes - You can personalise the recipes, say if you don't care for an ingredient and want to substitute it with something else. You can change any or all of the elements in an existing recipe to suit your own preferences, dietary requirements, local availability of ingredients or variations in carb values. What is more, the cookbook does all the recalculation of the total carbs and carbs per serving for you!
Add recipes - Not only can you change the existing recipes, but you can also add completely new ones. Converting your favourite recipes to low carb, or making new creations of your own couldn't be simpler using the easy to use blank recipe template. And the cookbook will calculate the total carbs and carbs per serving for you.
Import recipes from elsewhere - The cookbook will even let you import your favourite recipes from other places on the Web. Just highlight and copy the recipe you want, then paste it into the new recipe template. If the original recipe was laid out in a different way, that's not a problem - just click and drag each item to place it under the appropriate heading on The Low Carb is Easy Cookbook recipe template.
Automatic carb calculation when you change ingredients or quantities - Perhaps you don't like garlic. Maybe you want to use almond flour instead of soya flour, or prefer more sweetener. Unlike most other cookbooks, carb counts are shown against each ingredient, making it possible to calculate revised carb figures for the recipe if you change something.
Change carb counts - If your brand has a different value to the one used in the cookbook, that's no problem! Just change its carb count and the cookbook will immediately display the new total carbs and carbs per serving.
Choose your own serving size - Perhaps you want to divide the shortbread into 12 and not 10 – simply change the number of servings and watch the cookbook recalculate the carbs per serving.
'What ifs' - If you like the look of a recipe but don't have that many carbs to spend, or want to see whether reducing or substituting an ingredient is worth the carbs it will save, that's easy. Just make the change without saving it and you'll be able to see what effect it will have on the count per serving.
Access your cookbook from anywhere in the world - Going on holiday or visiting is not a problem at all. Because your recipes are stored on the Low Carb is Easy server, you can view, change and add to them from anywhere in the world through any internet-connected computer. You could even plan tonight's meal during your lunch break at work! Or access your cookbook on a computer in the library, in an internet cafe or at a friend's house.
Help is always at hand - The Cookbook has been designed to be easy to use, but to help you get the most from it, there is a comprehensive help facility available from the toolbar on every page.
Your own personalised cookbook - The cookbook even automatically organises your recipes, including those you have changed or created yourself or imported from elsewhere, and generates an updated Contents page.
Here's another great find ... a unique interactive cookbook that allows you to reset the ingredients or brands, after which the cookbook recalculates the carb and nutrient data for you instantly.

If you have ever wished for a better way to control your individual recipes, or keep your collection of favorites conveniently on your computer, then I recommend taking a look at the Low Carb is Easy interactive cookbook. I have found it to be a great solution.
Can't remember what website your favorite low carb recipe was on or what book it was in? This Cookbook is the solution. The price is an absolute steal for the convenience of keeping all my recipes organized and easily accessible! What I like best is that since there is no software to download or install, you can access and update your personal cookbook from any computer where you can access the internet. If you are at a friend's, at family's, or at work, you can log on and easily get the recipes you need. Great for the upcoming holidays!

SUPER BONUS #1: Easy Guide to Low Carb, Low GI and Low GL Diets
Low carb, low GI (glycemic index) and their close relative low GL (glycemic load) diets are based on the same scientific principle - that out-of-control blood sugar and insulin levels are to blame for most people's overweight problems. They represent a major change in weight loss methods, as the prevailing belief for the last fifty years has been that only calories matter, and that therefore the only successful weight loss diet is one which reduces calories.
In this indispensable 38-page Guide you'll discover how the new blood sugar / insulin control diets became popular, how the various types of diet work and what foods you eat on them. Further chapters help you to understand the medical evidence that supports these diets so that you can make up your own mind about whether they are healthy and safe. You will also learn why low carb, low GI and low GL diets may work better for you than low calorie and low fat diets and the scientific reasoning for this. You will also find a summary of the similarities and differences between low carb, low GI and low GL diets, to help you decide which diet is right for you and a step-by-step guide to help you get started on whichever diet you have chosen.
With this closely packed 38-page Guide to Low Carb, Low GI and Low GL Diets you will learn everything you need to know to make an informed decision on which diet is the best for you and how to get started on the diet of your choice. A £11.97 value.

I'm super impressed with the layout of the cook book. I bought all the cookbooks etc etc. Your cook book is the best I've come across so far. The hardest thing is the weekends, you want to have a treat with the rest of the family and join in. This is where I found your cookbook really helpful! It's been a couple of weekends since I bought it and I haven't cheated! AND it was easy! PS I made the flat breads.. yum! I also made the flaxseed "scones" they were gorgeous!
I have just recently subscribed to your cookbook and am finding it brilliant.
What can I say but thank you....this is probably the best service I have received, it shows what a personal service you give and you are a credit to your company. Thank you again for this excellent support.
What have you got to lose, except weight!
