I enjoyed reading Dr. Gotts book. It explains why we should omit flour and sugar from our diet and the benefits we get from doing so. Dr. Gott’s No Flour, No Sugar Cookbook recipes include a wide variety from breakfast to desserts. My one criticism is the large amounts of artificial sweetener in many of the recipes. I would not use a lot of sweetener in the recipes myself, but I can understand why he included them in this book. I think this book could help us change our lives.
Time and time again I have asked my doctor for a magic pill to help me lose weight. I have tried every diet on the market. I might lose weight short term but it always comes back -plus. Of course, we all know there is no magic pill; it takes will power, commitment, and a plan. In 2006, Dr. Peter H. Gott offered readers a plan to lose weight in his book Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet. His latest book offers inexpensive and delicious recipes to support his diet.
Gott begins this book by answering question from his readers. One of the points I thought very important was to get rid of all flour and sugar products in your pantry. Another important point is to be prepared for special events. The Glycemic Index has always sounded confusing; however, Dr. Gott uses laymen's terms to explain it.
Cooking is one of my hobbies so I was eager to try the recipes. The first one I tried was Spicy Scrambled Eggs. The eggs are delicious and healthy. The recipe makes just the right amount for two people. The next one I tried was the Orange Smoothie; it serves two and is delicious. As in most cookbooks, you will find some you love and some you will not. The Tasty Chicken Wraps were a hit but the Mediterranean Bean Wrap was not. This is a good cookbook. The recipes are simple and user-friendly. Rush out and buy this cookbook for a healthier life and delicious eating.
