A cheerful, action-oriented program for lifestyle change is presented by the director of the Ann Arbor Center for Health and Fitness Excellence, who is aided by the author of America's New Low-Fat Cuisine. Reiterating that his Low-Fat Living Program is based on skillpower, not willpower, Cooper builds on the concept of switches, describing ten that turn on the body's fat burners (e.g., eating dinner early) and ten that turn off its fat makers (e.g., avoiding low-fiber meals and snacks). Throughout, the well-referenced text is brightened by numerous "Switchbreaks" sidebars advising specific tactics and lighthearted headings (e.g., "Send in the Subs"). Although exercise is well covered, and sleep and stress management get their due, the emphasis is on a diet which draws 20% of calories from fat. To this end, Cooper offers advice on grocery shopping, food preparation and dining out. Augmenting the text are original and imaginative recipes for 14 lunches and dinners and for more than two dozen whole-grain yeast breads, all with nutritional analyses. (Mar.)
