Overview

Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper is the recognized leader of the international health and fitness movement. In this important and lifesaving book, Dr. Cooper shows men and women, step-by-step, how to control cholesterol, lower the risk of heart disease, and live a longer, healthier life.

Controlling Cholesterol

Controlling your cholesterol level is the first and best defense against the dangers of heart disease. Though there is no "cure" for high cholesterol, preventive medicine does have an answer to this important health problem. Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper offers the most up-to-date and definitive program for controlling your cholesterol level and safeguarding your health. Inside you'll find:

  • How to calculate your personal "cholesterol coronary risk"
  • A revolutionary diet and exercise program designed for your individual risk level
  • The straight truth about cholesterol and coffee, alcohol, smoking, birth control pills, stress - even chocolate and steak (which may not be as bad for us as we used to think)
  • How to distinguish between "good" and "bad" cholesterol
  • How foods and nutrients such as oat bran, fiber, olive oil, fish, and Omega-3 can control - and even lower- cholesterol levels
  • and much more.

This first and only authoritative mass market bestseller on cholesterol contains the most up-to-date, medically sound information on diet, nutrition, exercise and lifestyle--and their impact on coronary problems. Includes the latest information on determining a coronary risk profile, an all-new exercise program, low-cholesterol recipes and more.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Cooper (Aerobics, etc.) directs a fitness center in Dallas, and this authoritative, no-nonsense, first volume in his projected ``Preventive Medicine Program'' series may motivate underexercised, overstressed readers to change their lifestyles. Cooper is blunt about the risks of smoking and obesity, and presents considerable evidence that diet and lifestyle changes, which lower total cholesterol levels and control the various fats in the blood, can help protect individuals from heart disease. There is an admirably lucid explanation of the significance of low- and high-density lipoproteins and total cholesterol levels; an entire chapter is devoted to Q & A's on cholesterol tests; and comprehensible charts calculate cardiovascular disease risk. Cooper sorts out the mountains of often contradictory information on what's helpful and harmful, presenting up-to-date research findings and their practical implications. As a basic preventive prescription, Cooper advocates a ``relatively moderate but disciplined approach to diet and exercise,'' which he demonstrates in a short section on aerobics and in two weeks' worth of cholesterol-controlling menus.

Library Journal
Cooper has produced a highly readable explanation of cholesterol hazards for those interested in reducing blood cholesterol and risk of cardiovascular disease. He includes diet, exercise regimens, recipes, and food-content tables and provides brief treatment of lipoproteins, triglycerides, fiber, monounsaturates, smoking, cancer, and alcohol. Cooper permits special preparation of Cajun, Hawaiian, and Mexican foods, but does not mention Lovastatin (the new cholesterol drug), and the cholesterol risk levels are outdated. But overall, the book is well-arranged and provides good coverage for a lay audience. Rose Eriksen, Los Angeles Cty. Lib., Carson, Cal.
