  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
    Like many diet books, this tome on DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) supplies everything anyone ever wanted to know about weight loss, eating, and health. It reflects standard operating procedure, covering the education, tricks, and tips so necessary to success, from how to transition (read labels, fill half the plate with vegetables, and lower sodium) and debunking myths like losing weight is linear and fast food is off limits when dieting. Koslo adds to the general how-to-lose info with her in-depth knowledge and advice, including a four-week schedule of meals and exercise, expert counsel on burning 100 calories (bowling for 30 minutes for example), and even psychological guidance. The 100-plus recipes carry that expertise one step further. Each features not only full nutritional information, a photograph, and instructions, but also fairly extensive tips, such as substitutes/variations for ingredients and enhanced spices. A few examples: Quinoa and spinach power salad, two-potato cauliflower soup, oatmeal-crusted chicken tenders, a single-serving cherry-vanilla cupcake. Serious about improving health? Start, and continue, with Koslo. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
