Physician Lydon (Look Hot, Live Long ) presents a six-week nutrition and exercise plan designed to promote weight loss, improve fitness, and reduce the signs of aging. Rooted in research and the author's medical knowledge and background in nutrition and fitness, this serious and occasionally technical work eschews fad-diet trends for clear and in-depth explanations of Lydon's recommendations. While advocating the nutritional importance of lean protein, judicious intake of good fats, and plenty of lower-glycemic carbohydrates like fruits and vegetables, she also strongly emphasizes the greater value of shorter, high-intensity weight-bearing exercise sessions over lengthy periods of aerobic exercise. Clearly illustrated exercise routines, self-tracking forms, recommended-foods lists, and a small recipe section round out the text. Neither condescending nor dumbed down, this intelligent guide will make a worthwhile and refreshing addition to the fitness-and-nutrition genre. Readers interested in physician-authored diet books may also like Nicholas Perricone's The Perricone Weight-Loss Diet or Andrew Weil's Eating Well for Optimum Health . Highly recommended for all public libraries.—Ingrid Levin, Salve Regina Univ. Lib., Newport, RI[Page 142]. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
