Doing for fat what he did for cholesterol in the bestsellers Don-Yt Eat Your Heart Out and Choices for a Healthy Heart, lay expert Joe C. Piscatella presents a wealth of medically sound information on the dangerous American high-fat diet and what can be done to avoid it.

He shows how our fast-paced modern lifestyle has created a pro-fat culture that relies on frozen meals, fast foods, and snacks for nutrition. He reveals how advertising regularly misleads consumers about the fat content of foods (2% milk, for example, is really 38% fat). He makes known information about the biological basis for the -_fat tooth-"-Xwhy so many of us crave chocolate, cheesecake, and ice cream. And he provides specific, practical, usable advice on striping fat from our diets by employing a special fat tooth budget.

With menus, tips, and 200 delicious, low-fat recipes from Bernie Piscatella-Xeach with a nutritional breakdown-XCONTROLLING YOUR FAT TOOTH is every American-Ys antidote to a national epidemic.

About the Author:

Author Joseph C. Piscatella has been a keen observer of American eating habits since 1977, when emergency open-heart surgery at the age of 32 forced him to recognize the intimate connection between dietary habits and overall health.

As president of the Institute for Fitness and Health, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington, he lectures extensively to a variety of clients, including medical organizations, corporations and professional associations, and is a consultant on major wellness projects for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Cited in Time for their practicality and effectiveness, his seminars deal with the management of lifestyle habits to increase health, longevity and productivity.

He is also a member of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and the National Wellness Association.
