Overview

Endorsed by the Food Editors of Prevention Health Books

Finally: A proven eating strategy for burning excess body fat.

The Low-Fat Living program is not a diet. It's a system that shows you how to make simple "switches" in your everyday eating patterns.

Switch the time you eat snacks to maximize their fat-burning power.

Choose the right lunch and rev up your metabolism for the rest of the day.

Burn fat while you sleep by eating an early dinner and doing some light evening activity.

Ten complete Fat-Burner Switches and more than 250 easy, great-tasting recipes make this a plan anyone can use to trim pounds, feel better, and live longer. The best part of the program is digging into delicious homestyle dishes like Cinnamon French Toast, Stuffed Pizza, Penne with Sausage and Broccoli, and Chocolate Mocha Bundt Cake. Every recipe is geared toward the home cook. The ingredients are easy to find and cooking time is kept to a minimum.

Plus, you'll learn how to:
Shop smart
Cook lean
Modify your favorite recipes
Build active minutes into your day to help burn more fat
Master new habits that will last a lifetime

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Readers who overlook some of Cooper's Low-Fat Living Program polemics (turning off the body's fat-making switches and turning on fat-burning ones) and her contentions that an anxious, angry or hostile individual metabolizes fats more slowly than others will be rewarded by these low-fat offerings. The easy-to-make, slimmed-down recipes for comforting favorites are based on widely recognized fat-reducing techniques and are particularly well suited to home cooks fairly new to the kitchen. Cooper offers Spaghetti Squash Casserole with low-fat cheeses, corn and tomatoes; Potato Pancakes (sauted in a non-stick pan with a minimum of oil) and Penne with Sausage and Broccoli made with poultry sausage. Interesting variations on those low-fat staples, vegetables, are found in such dishes as Green Beans with Feta and Walnuts, and Orange-Ginger Beets. Unusual low-fat combinations include Pizza with Apples, Walnuts, and Gorgonzola Cheese, or Cashew-Crusted Shrimp with Mango Sauce. Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with egg substitute and prune pure; prunes sweeten Low-Fat Chewy Brownies, which use egg whites rather than whole eggs. Meal plans for special occasions are suggested, along with plenty of tips and strategies for fitting low-fat meals into one's lifestyle. (June)
KLIATT
Adolescents aren't going to be as interested in low-fat recipes as their parents, but surely home economics departments in secondary schools want to stress various types of dietary plans: low-salt, low-fat, and so forth, if only for the students interested in pursuing careers in nutrition. This is a fine collection of low-fat cooking possibilities. Also, there are suggestions for cutting down fat content in favorite recipes with substitutions, ideas for using and storing condiments, and general instructions about kitchen safety and useful tools. Many of the recipes are vegetarian, which will appeal to that ever-growing group, and there are plenty of popular possibilities in pizzas, calzones, puddings, tacos, and the like. There are few illustrations, and they are line drawings, so the bulk of this book are the recipes themselves, clearly explained, with a lot of information about healthy, low-fat eating. Hands-on time necessary is posted (almost all under 20 minutes), as is all nutritional information (calories, fat, protein, etc.) KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 1998, Rodale, 438p, illus, index, 24cm, 97-41540, $17.95. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Claire Rosser; September 2000 (Vol. 34 No. 5)
