The New American Diet

Sonja L. Connor, Author, William E. Connor, Author Simon & Schuster $18.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-54324-2
The authors present here a dietbased on research conducted over a 25-year period, including a five-year controlled study of over 200 familieswhich was developed to prevent heart disease, stroke, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, various forms of cancer and other maladies. What the Connors propose is a life-long diet program, high in carbohydrates and low in fat, salt and cholesterol. Gradual permanent food substitutions are made in three phases and over 300 recipes are provided. Foodstuffs range from bran, beans, and fresh fruits and vegetables to imitation mayonnaise, egg substitutes and low-fat dairy products. Portions are not skimpy and even allow for the very occasional dish of ice cream. This thorough, accessible volume is aptly directed toward the lay reader, and the recipes, though plebeian, are easy to prepare. The authors both teach clinical nutrition at Oregon Health Sciences University. Illustrations not seen by PW. Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates. (May 30)
