The low carb bible is a large scale, hardcover book with a ton of information. It compares the various diets, explains why they work and offers practical recipes and tips.
The book isn't trying to indoctrinate you in the low carb lifestyle. It gives both information on studies supporting low carb as well as the concerns that some have about this lifestyle. It lets you make an educated decision about how to follow a low carb lifestyle.
There is a section comparing the main low carb diets - Atkins, carbohydrate addicts, neanderthin, protein power, schwarzbein principle, south beach, sugar busters, Suzanne Somers, and the zone.
Many pages are dedicated to carbohydrate counts, to let you judge which foods are better to eat than others as far as the sugar content goes. Then there are almost 200 pages of recipes with full color photos. They range from breakfasts and snacks to salads and full meals.
This is a great book to leave out on your coffee table and read in many sittings, looking over the exercises one day, the various diet suggestions on another. A great way to get a grounding in the low carb world.
