A Comprehensive Low-Carb Restaurant Manual

Cheri Sicard keeps you from blowing your low-carb lifestyle when dining out

Ever since I lost nearly 200 pounds on the low-carb lifestyle, people are always asking, "So, Jimmy, where can you go out to eat and stay on your low-carb lifestyle?" I always laugh at this because they act as if when you are livin' la vida low-carb you live in some kind of shell cut off from the rest of the world. But the flexibility of low-carb allows you to eat virtually anywhere and still remain on your low-carb lifestyle.

But, it can be difficult to know what exactly you can and cannot eat when dining out, especially when you are new to low-carb. It sure would be nice to have a handy dandy manual to whip out and reference anytime you are out and about and need to stop by a fast-food or sit-down restaurant for a bite to eat.

That's where The Low-Carb Restaurant Guide comes in extremely handy.

Written by Cheri Sicard, she did all the footwork for you to locate the bountiful choices that await you at nearly every restaurant known to man. From Applebee's to Wienerschnitzel and everything in between, Sicard invested a lot of time in providing you with options galore.

As you can imagine, restaurants change their menus quite often so she even includes the web site address of the restaurants so you can visit them directly for the most up-to-date information, some of which is already dated. But Sicard provides some excellent advice regarding making the best decisions about what to eat when low-carbing, including various practical tips for eating out low-carb style, explaining the difference between good and bad carbs, and help with counting carbs.

Each restaurant featured in The Low-Carb Restaurant Guide contains four distinct sections.

In "The Good" section, Sicard gives an overview of the positive aspects of the particular restaurant from the vantage point of someone on a low-carb lifestyle. Conversely, in "The Bad" and "The Ugly" sections, she explains the foods you DEFINITELY need to avoid and keep yourself from being tempted with when dining at that particular restaurant. Finally, the "Best Things To Eat" section gives a step-by-step guide for how and what to order from the restaurant to keep on livin' la vida low-carb.

This book is small enough to carry around in the glove compartment of your vehicle, in your purse, or even in your back pocket. If you worry about ordering something that has a questionable carb content, then you will want to pick up a copy of The Low-Carb Restaurant Guide for yourself. It will keep you from blowing your low-carb lifestyle.

I went out to Applebees for a company dinner and it was easy. I got a steak and shrimp dinner smothered in cheese, subbed the potatoes for double veggies, and gave the garlic bread to someone else. I passed on dessert. Easy. :)
