Synopsis:

A compelling, comprehensive source book and diet and exercise guide, "Fat-Proof Your Child" spells out how fatty school lunches and too much television contribute to the weight problems of one quarter of all American children. Easy-to-implement solutions are then explored that will get kids and their parents back on the right track. Joseph C. Piscatella is author of "Controlling Your Fat Tooth" and "Choices for a Healthy Heart".

Synopsis:

As America has grown into a heavier, more sedentary nation, so have its kids.

20 millionon--fully one-quarter--of American children are overweight, with 11% severely obese.

36% of our children aged 2 to 19 have high cholesterol.

66% of 5- to 17-year-olds fail to meet minimum fitness criteria.

Knowing what he does about the connection between diet, exercise, and health, lay expert Joseph C. Piscatella is alarmed. Author of Don't Eat Your Heart Out Cookbook and other books for adults with over 2 million copies in print, Mr. Piscatella now turns to motivating parents to reverse the dangerous trend of overweight, out-of-shape kids. A compelling, comprehensive source book and diet and exercise guide, Fat-Proof Your Child spells out the whys of the problemo--from too much fast food to too much television, diminishing Phys Ed programs to inexcusably fatty school lunches--then offers easy-to-implement solutions that will get not only kids but also parents back on the right track.

Here are 7 Basics that will improve a child's food habits; the Activity Pyramid for children and adolescents; up-to-date research on fat, sugar, salt, and fiber; and, from his wife, Bernie, over 100 recipes that modify favorite family dishes.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 457-464) and index.

About the Author

Author Joseph C. Piscatella has been a keen observer of American eating habits since 1977, when emergency open-heart surgery at the age of 32 forced him to recognize the intimate connection between dietary habits and overall health. His successful recovery and determination to make adjustment in his own lifestyle and diet inspired a new career as an active proponent of healthy lifestyle changes. As president of the Institute for Fitness and Health, Inc. in Tacoma, Washington, he lectures extensively to a variety of clients, including medical organizations, corporations and professional associations, and is a consultant on major wellness projects for Fortune 500 companies, the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force. Cited in Time for their practicality and effectiveness, his seminars deal with the management of lifestyle habits to increase health, longevity and productivity. Mr. Piscatella is the only non-medical member of the National Institute of Health Cardiac Rehabilitation Expert Panel, which develops clinical practice guidelines for physicians. He is also a member of the Association for Worksite Health Promotion, the American Association of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and the National Wellness Association.
