Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cooper (Aerobics, etc.) directs a fitness center in Dallas, and this authoritative, no-nonsense, first volume in his projected "Preventive Medicine Program" series may motivate underexercised, overstressed readers to change their lifestyles. Cooper is blunt about the risks of smoking and obesity, and presents considerable evidence that diet and lifestyle changes, which lower total cholesterol levels and control the various fats in the blood, can help protect individuals from heart disease. There is an admirably lucid explanation of the significance of low- and high-density lipoproteins and total cholesterol levels; an entire chapter is devoted to Q & A's on cholesterol tests; and comprehensible charts calculate cardiovascular disease risk. Cooper sorts out the mountains of often contradictory information on what's helpful and harmful, presenting up-to-date research findings and their practical implications. As a basic preventive prescription, Cooper advocates a "relatively moderate but disciplined approach to diet and exercise," which he demonstrates in a short section on aerobics and in two weeks' worth of cholesterol-controlling menus.

From Library Journal

Cooper has produced a highly readable explanation of cholesterol hazards for those interested in reducing blood cholesterol and risk of cardiovascular disease. He includes diet, exercise regimens, recipes, and food-content tables and provides brief treatment of lipoproteins, triglycerides, fiber, monounsaturates, smoking, cancer, and alcohol. Cooper permits special preparation of Cajun, Hawaiian, and Mexican foods, but does not mention Lovastatin (the new cholesterol drug), and the cholesterol risk levels are outdated. But overall, the book is well-arranged and provides good coverage for a lay audience. Rose Eriksen, Los Angeles Cty. Lib., Carson, Cal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on Cholesterol May 6, 1998
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an excellent book on the subject of how to control cholesterol. The book is clearly written and it thoroughly explains the mechanism of cholesterol metabolism to the layman.
The various case studies are great too. The only criticism I have for the book is that it is not up to date in the latest treatments for high cholesterol.

This is a great book. I just ordered another book for a friend. I lost 20 lbs and 55 points on my cholesterol in 9 weeks. All my readings are now normal. The book contained all the information I was looking for. A must read for anyone who wants to control their choleterol.
