Publisher Comments:

During his forty years of medical practice and in his nationally syndicated column, Dr. Peter Gott has been asked constantly by patients and readers for a simple, foolproof way to lose weight. In response, he developed the No Flour, No Sugar Diet, which has prompted countless success stories from his patients, thousands of letters from his readers raving about their phenomenal weight loss, and his first New York Times bestselling book, Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet. And now, here are more than 175 new recipes promising rapid and effective weight loss.


It's uncomplicated and inexpensive. It allows you to forget calorie counting and gram counting. Cheating is allowed! In this book, Dr. Gott shows how easy it is to experience a variety of wonderful meals (including dessert!) while eliminating flour and added sugar from your diet. Say good-bye to bagels and cakes-and enjoy lean meats; potatoes; rice; low-fat dairy products; vegetables; flourless, sugar-free cookies; and fruits. The inexpensive and nutritious dishes make maintaining this diet a snap for everyone, with recipes such as:



  • Breakfast: Faux French Toast, Spicy Scrambled Eggs, Potato Pancakes with Applesauce

  • Soups: Creamy Tomato, Turkey and Barley, Cuban Black Bean

  • Appetizers: Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms, Salmon Cakes on Spinach, Cheesy Eggplant Wedges

  • Entrees: Asparagus and Chicken Pasta, Stir-Fried Beef with Bean Threads, Jasmine Turkey Rice

  • Desserts: Fruity Rice Pudding, Blueberry Raspberry Crumble, Banana Bread, Mandarin Mousse

...and more.


In addition, the book includes advice on stocking your kitchen, understanding healthy carbohydrates and how to incorporate them into your diet, and avoiding the dreaded yo-yo dieting effect. Eliminate flour and sugar from your diet-shed excess pounds and enjoy your ideal weight!

Review:

"This companion to Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet has more than 200 recipes. A recap of Gott's program explains why readers should eliminate flour and sugar from their diets, identifying the high-calorie, nutrient-deficient foods that are made from them as major factors in the escalating weights of adults and children in the U.S. To avoid obesity, heart disease, diabetes and other life-threatening illnesses, Gott shows readers how to replace 'empty calories' with tempting alternatives for meals, snacks and desserts. Gott acknowledges that stress and limited time lead many to choose unhealthy fast foods, but the difficulty of finding no-flour, no-sugar prepared foods in many locations means followers must cook at home. Fortunately, these recipes (some contributed by readers of his book and nationally syndicated newspaper column) are quickly prepared. For example, a simple syrup made of dates and figs turns hot cereal into a special treat; crepes made with arrowroot powder are a delicious alternative to wraps; and meat, cheese and nuts, often reduced or eliminated on diets, are permitted. (A casserole based on an English meat pie contains ground pork; an adaptation of the Philly Cheese Steak calls for provolone; and Gott's 'sweet-and-sour nuts' blends pecans, cashews and almonds.) Frequently, Gott's recipes include artificial sweeteners, which he says are safe and effective." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
