Richard Simmons turns his infectious energy and enthusiasm to low-fat cooking in this video devoted to breakfast. In a casual setting where he is the teacher of eight equally enthusiastic students, he uses his knife, whisk, and measuring spoons to seduce the viewer into his philosophy of food. "Be nice to yourself" is one of his key phrases as he re-creates butter, cream, and otherwise calorie-laden dishes such as Eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles, omelets, and French toast to produce low-fat versions, which he hints will pare off pounds while providing gastronomic pleasure. Intended for the interested but inexperienced cook, the visuals are clear, the instructions easy to follow, and the techniques shown up close. This cheerful master of media makes viewers think about what they are putting into their mouths. --Susan Herrmann Loomis
