CarbSmart, a leading online magazine dedicated to the low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle, announces the release of a new gluten-free and sugar-free cookbook.

Each year, as millions of people search for a way to lose weight, get healthy, and improve their health markers, many of them are turning to low-carb, gluten-free diets, which help them reach and maintain their health and weight loss goals. CarbSmart, the popular online magazine dedicated to the low-carb, ketogenic way of life, has published a new cookbook that will help all low-carb, gluten-free dieters. “CarbSmart Grain-Free, Sugar-Free Living Cookbook” features 50+ new tasty low-carb and gluten-free recipes from low-carb experts Dana Carpender and Caitlin Weeks, NC.

“Although most people initially come to a low-carb diet to lose weight, many make it a permanent lifestyle because they reap the benefits of eliminating wheat and sugar while adding in plenty of healthy dietary fat,” said Andrew DiMino, President of CarbSmart, Inc. and a low-carb dieter since 1998. “A low carber first cuts out all sugars and starchy carbohydrates to lose body fat. As they reach their goal weight, they refine their food plan to add back more healthy dietary fat that the body is able to utilize as energy,” continued DiMino.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a low-carbohydrate diet is often used for weight loss, but it can also be helpful in helping to reduce the risk factors with heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. The diet places an emphasis on protein and fat, while limiting the grains, starchy vegetables, and fruits. This cookbook helps people be able to splurge on a special treat, among other things, without giving up their low-carb lifestyle.

The “CarbSmart Grain-Free, Sugar-Free Living Cookbook” recipes are by two veterans in the low-carb lifestyle sector, Dana Carpender and Caitlin Weeks, NC. Carpender runs the popular blog “Hold the Toast,” and is the author of 20+ cookbooks on low-carb cooking including CarbSmart's last cookbook "Fat Fast Cookbook." Weeks is a holistic nutrition consultant and publishes the widely followed blog “Grass Fed Girl.”

The grain-free, sugar-free cookbook offers information on cooking with such ingredients as stevia, xylitol, erythritol, almond meal, coconut flour, chia seed, and more. Recipes run the gamut, including condiments, beverages, cookies, cakes and pies, sweet treats, healthy breakfasts, and breads, crackers, and muffins. Each recipe, includes a full-color photograph and is labeled as being low-carb, gluten-free, dairy-free, Paleo, vegetarian, vegan, and nut-free, as well as provides nutrition information per serving and preparation notes.
