Splendid Desserts and
More Splendid Desserts
by Jennifer Eloff
Visit their site for Ordering Info
These are not low-carb, as they utilize flour etc for baking,
but because they teach the basics of baking with Splenda as a
replacement for sugar, most recipes can be adjusted to be low carb
by substituting Atkins Bake Mix, Soy Flour, ProFormix, and/or
Oat or Almond Flour for white wheat flour. They are working on a version
of Splenda Cookbook that will be low carb.

The Low-Carbohydrate Gourmet: A Cookbook for Hungry Dieters
by Harriet Brownlee
I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's filled with some of the most
creative LC recipes I've ever seen. So far, I've never made a recipe from
this book that didn't come out great! And the author is smart and funny.
Try to locate a copy of this one!
Low Carbohydrate Cookbook
by Joanne Waring Lindeman
ISBN: 0911954309 (This is part of the "Nitty Gritty Cookbook
Series") A little hard to follow because of the odd format of the book
(wide and skinny), plus it uses blue ink on blue paper, but the small
book offers some really unique recipes!
Faygo Award Winning Diet Recipes
ISBN: None Published by Faygo Beverages of Detroit, Michigan in
the mid-1960's, this little mini-cookbook shows off some amazing creativity.
All the recipes are sugar free and use the then-sacharin-based Faygo pop in
everything from cream puffs to Hawaiian Ribs in Root Beer sauce. The sweet and
sour cabbage with diet RedPop is certainly unique. And we love the Diet Chicken
Aloha. With the advent of sodas using aspartame that cannot be heated, cooking
with diet soda went by the wayside. But these old recipes are grand again when
using the Diet Slim Jones or the Flavors of Diet Rite (all Splenda-based and great
to cook with!) If you can locate this little gem, pick it up!
Low Carbohydrate Cookery
by Dolly and Jack Schumann
ISBN: 6613530 Originally published in Japan in 1966, this diet/cookbook
bills itself as "The dieter's guide to living as if every day is Sunday". The first
half of the book explains low-carbing and lays out tons of sample menu plans. The
second half is recipes with a mini carb gram counter at the end of the book. Interesting
look at the world's initial look at low-carbing in a formal way.
Sue Farrell's Lo-Carbo Cookbook
by Sue Farrell
ISBN: None. In 1973 diet guru Sue Farrell put together this handy little
volume containing 250+ recipes and 30 complete daily menus. The anecdotal
tales at the beginning of each food group chapter are priceless, as are
the graphics of many apron-adorned women (complete with pearls and heels) serving
men in suits their evening meals! The recipes really are scrumptious,
Dr. Carlton Fredericks' Low Carbohydrate Diet
by Carlton Fredericks
ISBN: 0441497721 Published in 1965, this is a ground-breaking
The Drinking Man's Diet
by Gardner Jameson and Elliott Williams
ISBN: UNKNOWN Published in 1964, this is one of the first publications
of what's now known as the Low-Carb Diet. Includes a lengthy gram counter
and sample menus.
The Drinking Man's Diet Cookbook
by Robert W. Cameron
ISBN: UNKNOWN Published in 1967 as a companion piece to the above
book (The Drinking Man's Diet). When CBS News' Walter Cronkite did
an 8-minute piece on the diet on the evening news, the low-carb craze
began to sweep the nation, but there was no cookbook reference - thus
the birth of this book.
Calories Don't Count
by Herman Taller, M.D.
ISBN: UNKNOWN Published in 1961 by Simon and Schuster, Doctor
Taller's book was the Number 1 Best Seller in the Nonfiction category
for 1962. It promotes eating meat, and strictly limiting carbohydrates.
(Kind of just where we are now!) It's still a book filled with great
recipes and ideas. Want a chuckle? The Calorie Council still calls
this book "one of the worst fad diets ever promoted". (See
comments here - Question #9.)
Let's Eat Right to Keep Fit
by Adelle Davis
ISBN: 0451155505 Published in 1954, Adelle Davis, a nutritionist, understood the
problems with a low fat, high carbohydrate diet before America got fat on it! Although
this book was written in the fifties, it is still right on today. Moreso than most, she
believes in eating enough PROTEIN, and cutting back on Sugars and Starches -- Full of
recipes; it's a classic!
