Seemingly doesn't know the difference here between Low Carb and Paleo. Ingredients in many recipes simply aren't Low Carb (they are "technically" allowed in Paleo... but in VERY limited quantities).

Also makes the HUGE mistake of trying to go Low Fat also (no can do... when Carbs are knocked out then the body HAS to have FAT for energy!).

He himself declares that LCHQ is his own interpretation of what Low Carb "should" be! This from the guy who supposedly "brought the Glycemic Index principle to Scandinavia" (apparently with his book on that subject back in 1997 - and most of his works are published there and northern Europe). The GI concept that has been shown to be pseudoscience (that some carbs metabolize to GLUCOSE more slowly than others... so what; the total blood sugar spike still occurs and causes problems).

He goes 55 pages before using any footnotes (and then most refer to non pertinent research, poorly done small studies, and outright poorly done biased studies).

Then as quickly as Page 58 the Recipes Section begins. A brief recipe on left page and a picture of that recipe completed on right page (a LOT of filler).

Worse, the recipes do NOT list ANY nutrient information! Nothing on how many grams of Carbs or Fats or Protein, etcetera!

Also, serving sizes are moderately small (not as bad as some so-called LC cookbooks, but close). This is a trick used to keep PERCEIVED carb counts down to lower levels.

Also, like too many authors, also errs in most recipes being too complex. Great maybe if you're a chef or have lots of time to spend on meal after meal. Not me!

Although the author dismisses the popularity of the LCHF dietary lifestyle and that it is receding, his own country recently adopted LCHF as their nationally recommended diet (not his LCHQ)!

His should read his fellow countryman's Low Carb High Fat Food Diet Revolution book (Eenfeldt).
