Will pump up your motivation as well as your muscles!

I own this well informed book that gives you a motivational read to lead a healthier life. It provides some proven strategies to live by. As a cookbook author myself, I've found this book compares similar to my writing of recipes that are low in fat and high in fiber, finding some tasty and delicious recipes in this book that will add variety to anyone's diet. Recipes that are lowfat with added fiber and a section to help you cook with whole grains and where to buy them.There's even a section of muscle toning exercises to help one become a fat burner at all times. Having had health problems in the past this book has been an inspiration to pursue better health in my own life. With a bad back, I find the lower back muscle toning and stretches soothing to my aching back.

A Whole Systems Approach

My only complaint with this book is its title, "Low Fat Living." It goes far beyond that. This is really the "whole mind, whole body" approach to weight control and more. This book seems to be a collection of everything that the authors could find that contributes to weight loss, organized in an interesting and integrative manner. I particularly loved the study that showed that people watching television burn up fewer calories than people sitting and watching a blank screen. As a woman at age 53, I was wondering if I could ever again shed pounds. My old approaches didn't work. The one thing that I knew was that people who successfuly do lose weight and keep it off do so through making life-style changes and they tailor what they do to their own bodies. This book enabled me to have a comprehensive understanding of what those changes needed to be concerning (1) nutrition, (2) exercise (including simply increasing motion), (3) water, (4) sleep, and (5) stress management. To my surprise, stress management has actually been the most challenging-and perhaps the most rewarding. I am no longer in the "diet" mentallity. I am now concentrating on making the small changes--trying this and that until I find ways that appeal to me and that I can sustain--and these are adding up to large changes that affect not just my weight, but my general health. Through this process and over several months, I am finding that my body and mind are changing in what they want. It is like my whole system is resetting to different standards. I'm beginning to actually be drawn to vegetables and whole grains, walking the dog, and skipping TV. Who'd'a thunk?


Low Fat Living is an informative book full of simple techniques you can incorporate into your life to lose weight and become healthier. Instead of fighting your desires for fatty foods or the urge to be a coach potato, Dr.Cooper and his wife Leslie teach you easy techniques to help you work with yourself not against yourself. For example he explains how drinking cold water can help you burn off fat as your body uses calories to warm it to core body temperature. In the book the authors explain how you can turn on your bodies fat burners by making easy to follow lifestyle changes. Little changes that can add up to long term, permanent weight loss. You will learn how artificial sweeteners can increase your cravings for sweets, why breakfast is such an important meal (and what to do if you are not a breakfast eater), snacks that trigger insulin reactions (and thus cause fat storage) snacks that are great anytime, ways to decrease your desire for fats, easy ways to get moving (even if you dislike exercise), mental and physical excercises and much more. The book is loaded with easy to follow suggestions to help you change your health permanently. Many delicious recipes are also included. A wonderful, simple way to help you get on the road to a healthier lifestyle!

Probably the most insightful well rounded book you could own

Simply written and wonderfully easy to incorporate into your daily life this book delivers exactly what the title proposes. The author tells us that losing weight is a matter of SKILLPOWER not WILLPOWER, and then he very cleverly outlines just how to do it. The key to success is to turn on the fat-burning switches that exist in all of us and turn off the fat-makers. The book also contains sample menus and food plans to keep you healthy and help you lose those extra pounds along with tips on how to reprogram your kitchen for success and make healthy substitutions for commonly used fats. I've bought a lot of health and nutrition books in my day but this one incorporates a lot of new ideas in an enjoyable format. Kelsana 3/23/01

Easy & Enjoyable to read

I enjoyed this book immensely because I thought that Dr. Cooper presented some simple guidelines to reducing the fat intake in one diet as well as overall hints to improve one's lifestyle. What made the book most enjoyable for me was that he did a good job explaining how one's body stores fat and deals with fat, with case studies to back his explanations. Understanding how my body works gave me greater insight into trying to live a low-fat life. In addition, I've tried some of the recipes in the book and what I've made so far was delicious. Don't take my positive words to mean that living low-fat is easy; it's not! I really have to motivate myself to eat low fat and excercise.
