This guide to eating and exercising the Brazilian way will appeal to those who want an approach to fitness that doesn't lack for flavor. Writer and fitness pro Joseph devotes the brunt of her text to chapters on eating ("Come!") and moving ("Se Mexe!"). "Come!" includes a wide range of Brazilian recipes that emphasize fresh tropical produce, legumes and spices, but doesn't skimp on meat, seafood or dessert; unfortunately, it may take some work to track down Brazilian "superfoods" like frozen acai pulp and yuccas. After a short consideration of "Brazilians and Body Image" ("Brazilians are obsessed with the bunda"), Joseph provides introductory lessons to the dancing martial art of Capoeira, which emphasizes constant, fluid movement; and Pilates, a "body-mind-spirit" exercise that focuses on controlled movement, core strength, concentration and breathing. She includes meal and workout plans, as well as tips for beginners and the injured; appendices include a weekly food-prep calendar and shopping lists. Though 30 days with Joseph's plan may not produce results like those in the cover photograph, enterprising dieters will find this a detailed, well-seasoned plan for getting in shape.
