With thousands of people enrolled in her weight-loss centers across the country, Craig has a sizable audience already in place. Their numbers should increase substantially with Craig's first cookbook, in which she combines her friendly, inspirational approach with an abundance of simple, full-flavored recipes. Fat-cutting substitutions are basic though never extreme (skim milk, margarine, vegetable cooking spray), and maximum mileage is gotten from spices and in-season fruits and vegetables. Regional and ethnic flavors abound in the opening menu-planning section, which contains suggestions for "Dinner in the Bayou" and "Rustic Italian Lunch." The chapter on breads is particularly strong, filled with recipes for such comforting selections as Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes and Cinnamon-Raisin Batter Bread. Sections on nutrition (featuring the USDA food pyramid with complex-carbohydrates base), calorie counting and exercise offer commonsense tips that are sure to motivate those making lifestyle changes.
