Bricklin, editor of Prevention , urges a no-gimmicks approach to taking weight off and keeping it off with a sensible program involving nothing more (and nothing less) than moderate reductions in caloric intake and moderate increases in expended energy. Rather than recommending dangerously restrictive dieting, the author advises heightened awareness of what, when and why we eat, easily adapted to a weight-loss and -maintenance regimen by cutting back and eating healthier (but not unfamiliar) foods. In his conversational, disarming style, Bricklin helps readers acknowledge and eliminate the dozens of minor bad habits that lead to major overeating, at the same time offering numerous valuable, near-painless suggestions for getting more exercise. We learn that controlling our weight is necessarily a lifelong process, but fortunately Bricklin's method involves neither deprivation nor overexertion; temptations are to be avoided, not overcome with ``willpower.'' Charts and recipes are included, and an informative, accessible 90-page table evaluates the nutritional value of foods from amaranth greens to Big Macs. (Mar . )
