Hobbs, a registered and licensed dietician, shares her knowledge through her newspaper column, "On the Table," as well as through numerous books. Her latest endeavor to help readers lead a healthier lifestyle comes on the heels of the American Heart Association's urging to remove all trans fats from our diets. Hobbs provides a list of 601 tips to do just that, which vary from using trans fat-free recipes to reading product nutrition labels. For easy perusal, tips are arranged into chapters and sections. Part 3, "Food Guide and Fat Gram Counter," is arranged not only by food type but also by brand and product name. Readers will realistically be able to use this list for grocery shopping. Although other books contain the same health information found here, the "Food Guide and Fat Gram Counter" section is so useful that public libraries of any size should make a point of purchasing a copy.-Rachel M.
