Summary: Great Recipes--Poor Book Construction
Comment: I love the recipes in this book--everything is incredibly delicious. I really like the muffin recipes--the banana nuffins and spice muffins are the best--and the key lime cheesecake recipe is fantastic as well. My favorite main dish recipe is the Meatloaf Rollatini, which I stuff with different ingredients every time. I love that the net carbs are listed for each serving and that the same ingredients are used for many of the recipes, so I can buy those in bulk to have them on hand. This book has made it very easy to eat low carb because the food is never boring.

I'm giving this rating a 3 because I was very dissappointed in the book construction--the pages separated from the spine the first time I gently laid the book open to have it lay flat on my counter. At this point the pages are being held in the book by a clip until I glue it back in myself.

Summary: Great Books!
Comment: I ordered both of the George Stella cookbooks and am pleased with the selection of recipes and narrative of his story with the low carb lifestyle. I would recommend the purchase.

Summary: Stella Style
Comment: I am not a cook. I don't know how to throw a meal together for a family, since I am single. But this is a great book for people who are tired of eating the same old thing with the Atkins diet. The recipes are easy and with practice can add flair to your cooking. I particularly like the sections that teach you how to make sauces and spice mixtures

Summary: Not for prego's!
Comment: This book had raving reviews so I bought it as a gift for my sister who is pregnant and has gestational diabetes. To avoid taking insulin she's had to go low-carb but it's getting monotinous. Hence, the loving sister ordered her a cookbook because she loves to cook. After I received it and looked through it I was surprised at the number of recipes that called for "Sugar substitute - recommended: Splenda." Yikes! THE SUGAR SUBSTITUTE/SPLENDA RECIPES ARE MOSTLY IN THE DESSERT SECTION. Splenda is an artificial chemical sweetner which contains chlorine (a carcinogen) and a host of other chemicals. Although it has been approved by the FDA as safe (in short term studies only.) After reading George's response to my comments I think there are less recipes than I though calling for a sugar substitute (about 20%) and if he's right (which he should be) they are mostly in the dessert section. So this low-carb cookbook is mostly good for prego's if you ignore the dessert section. Just know in advance what you're getting!
