Review:

Coach Approach from Weight Watchers is a personalized weight-loss plan with information about nutrition, exercise, and motivation, and with psychological pointers to help you understand how to overcome your barriers and succeed at losing weight. First you look at whether you are really ready to lose weight through self-tests that help you examine your attitudes, eating patterns, roadblocks, body fat, and body image. You learn nutrition and exercise basics, the facts about weight-loss supplements and gimmicks, how to get the most from an aerobics class, and hints for dressing in a stylish and flattering manner. The cooking section shows you how to create a "lean, mean kitchen," and includes tips for shopping. All the information is sensible, practical, and up to date. More than 70 heart-healthy recipes include traditional dishes like Quick Classic Meat Loaf and Spaghetti Bolognese, comfort foods like Peanut-Butter-Caramel Sandwiches (20 percent fat) and Chocolate Mousse (30 percent fat), and modern fare such as Sun-Dried Tomato-Tofu Dip and Lemon-Lime Swordfish with Mango Salsa. The nutritional breakdown for each recipe gives calories, total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrates, fiber, protein, calcium, and the points allotted by the Weight Watchers 1𠂻 Success program. A handy spiral binding lets the book lie flat for writing and cooking. --Joan Price
