Living Low-Carb


Fran McCullough

The site is a work in progress, when it is complete it will feature the following:
--excerpts from all of Fran McCullough's books,

  • The Low-Carb Cookbook (Hyperion, 1997)
  • Living Low-Carb (Little, Brown, 2000)
  • The Good Fat Cookbook (Scribner, 2003)

Fran is also the series editor of Best American Recipes, an annual collection that's part of Houghton Mifflin's BEST series (Best American Short Stories, etc.) Every year since 1999, there's been a Best American Recipes. (This year's collection was chosen by Gene Shalit as one of his ten best cookbooks for the Today Show.) And yes, low-carb fans, there are many low-carb recipes there (which will be identified) as there are in The Good Fat Cookbook (about 70% of the recipes are low-carb.)

Also on the site will be: recommended products, new recipes, the latest science on eating and health. So stay tuned: meantime, here's a sample of the text to come. The fats you consume (and don't consume) are the most important element of your overall good health, so listen up...
