The recipes are not challenging or complicated, every recipe has nutritional information listed, and most of the recipes' ingredients I am easily able to find. I don't have to find squid ink or use an ice cream maker - hooray! The authors provide suggestions for sides or meals at the end of each...

Lustig's Fat Chance is for everyone who can read who eats food.
This unfortunate book, however -- part science review; part pantry-stocking, meal-planning, recipe-making guide -- is not.

I have been "eating clean" for a few years, and I am always on the lookout for other recipes.
I really like the introduction to this book. I try to explain the science behind this way of eating to my family...most of whom prefer not to listen to what I have to say. The early chapters of the book...

Not a low carb cookbook!!!

My favorite thing about this book is that the Nutrition Facts for each recipe includes the amount of Added Sugars. It is nice to know how much sugar naturally occurs in foods, especially for example, dishes with fruits, which are already sweet, versus the sugar that is added in a recipe. I do wis...

I'm counting this as part of my book total because I really did read through it from beginning to end. I recently bought this and the AHA cookbook. The AHA cookbook focuses on removing as much salt and fat from food as possible while leaving in sugar and store bought pre-packaged "food". The "Fat...

I've read both this book and the other Fat Chance book.
There are some great recipes here and I will definitely use them as a reference. I say reference as although 95% of them had no added (granulated) sugar they still had plenty of natural sugar.
Just one of a few examples was the amount of dried...

I think this is a great companion to Lustig's book, Fat Chance. If you read Fat Chance and were left wondering, "Well, what do I eat to keep from triggering insulin resistance?" this book is for you. It is not ground breaking recipes, but it makes changing your diet a lot simpler. Each recipe tel...

Lustig has some recipes that I'll never make (I'm sorry--I don't care how much sugar there is in ketchup, I'm not making my own) but overall I like it. I wanted to try it because I'm trying to eat more whole grains and vegetables. I like whole grains and vegetables, but too many cookbooks have ve...

Five stars because I want everyone to get the message that fructose is unhealthy (unless is comes with fiber--like in fruit). As a cookbook it's great if you already play with recipes. It's way more of a guide. There are suggestions of things that go well together but I would like suggested meal...
