Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Former Galloping Gourmet star Graham Kerr and his wife, Treena, recount their transition to a healthy lifestyle. When Graham first started in television cooking, he and Treena searched for interesting recipes and ate "sumptuous," unhealthy restaurant fare that elevated their cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Ultimately, Treena developed diabetes after suffering a stroke and a heart attack. Dismayed by the "don'ts" and limitations in most recommended diets, the Kerrs educated themselves and developed the recipes and lifestyle options presented here, focusing on small, positive changes that can lead to major health improvements. They do an excellent job of describing the nine stages of change, illustrating the emotional phases necessary to commit to a new, healthier lifestyle and maintain it. Food Preference Sheets allow users to select from tastes, aromas, colors, and textures that appeal to them most, so that they can tailor a diet to their own wants and choices. Included here are almost 400 recipes, many of them vegetarian and all of them using easy-to-find ingredients and simple instructions. Readers will empathize with the Kerrs' experiences and find useful information in their novel and engaging collaboration. Recommended for all consumer health collections.-Janet M. Schneider, James A.
