So disappointing I was looking for a counting carb book, just something basic. When I skimmed through was so excited to see what I wanted. This was on my phone. Unfortunately when I looked on my iPad was even more disappointed to find the best parts unreadable
This is terrific- I am mostly paleo/ LCHF/cook from scratch and so appreciate a carb chart that lists actual foodstuffs rather than commercial products, which I would not usually eat. Although I was most frustrated trying to find 'olive' (which I consider food). I finally tracked it down in the drink section!
It works very well on my kindle. Its quite easy to just go the the table of contents and look under fish or vegetable or whatever else you need. Since the food lists are so short, its easy to find what you want, once all the Frankenfoods are left out..
Well done, book! I use it a lot. I would have done it differently, listing everything in lower carb order to higher, but I'm sure this would have confused many, as we are used to alphabetical order.
If lisa shea is interested, a short kindle chart on protein of various sorts, listing the amount of fat per 100 grams would be welcome. If you try to eat in a LCHF way, its actually not so easy to plan in as much saturated fat as you want. Many people are needlessly still fat-phobic, so I seem to spend my cooking life substituting, for example, chicken thigh for chicken breast if looking at someone else's recipe. I have my own hand written list, but perhaps other people would find such a chart of use.
I wanted a guide to the amount of carbs in everyday foods as I prefer fresh ingredients cooked at home. All the other books that I looked at had more about menus, rather than amount of carbs. Lisa's book covered everything I needed at a very affordable price.
General info quite good. Lists of foods very limited. Don't like portions given in half cups would rather have it in grams or ounces. Also very Americanized. Would love to find a comprehensive, British based reference book. Even at this low price this book is not worth it.
