Book Review
Move over, Martha Stewart: there's a new chef in the kitchen and she's on a mission to improve everyone's life from the inside out. It's Marilu Henner, bestselling author of Total Health Makeover and The 30-Day Total Health Makeover, but perhaps better remembered for playing Elaine on the popular 1970's TV show Taxi. So much more than a cookbook, Henner's hefty page-turner is like a detox program for the kitchen. She begins--in her typical, perky style--with a hard yet humorous look at the reader's kitchen and how it functions. Next she preaches the dangers of sugar (Henner calls it "kiddy cocaine"), red meat ("animal products are the number one cause of our number one killer, heart disease"), dairy products ("bovine slime"), about 200 food additives, and certain cleaning products. Nicely designed charts make the...

-- Marilu

Book Review
Marilu Henner, known as Elaine on TV's Taxi and star of the musical Chicago, was once very overweight, with sallow skin and a weak immune system. She waffled between starving herself and gorging herself. Since cutting dairy products and caffeine out of her diet, adopting a food-combining plan, and following a program that's code-named "BEST"--for balance, energy, stamina, and toxin-free--she's shaved nearly 100 points off her cholesterol count and 50 pounds off her frame, and she looks younger at 45 than she did at 19. If you don't count her pregnancies, her weight hasn't changed by more than 5 pounds over the past 11 years.

Henner's 10-step health program outlined here is strict, but she offers tips for getting your feet wet. Start by cutting out caffeine one day a week, she advises, instead of going...

Book Review
Marilu Henner, costar of the TV sitcom Taxi turned bestselling self-help author, has a strong message for doting parents: stop spoiling your children. Many of today's moms and dads confuse placating with loving, spurred by a desire to give their kids the world on a silver platter. Cowritten by Henner (mother of two boys) and her personal psychoanalyst Dr. Ruth Sharon, I Refuse to Raise a Brat explores the long-term effects of overgratifying youngsters and offers a wealth of situational advice.

Henner and Sharon theorize that a child's ability to balance independence and cooperation directly results from the parent-child relationship; too much negotiation, too many toys, exaggerated praise, and overprotection do not help that child in the long run. Instead of learning compliance, the child will learn that everything is...

Book Review
In Healthy Kids, actress Marilu Henner guides you to better health for your kids by emphasizing fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains, and avoiding sugar, white flour, red meat, chemicals, caffeine, large portions, heavily processed "dead foods," and dairy (cow's milk, she contends, contributes to colic, diarrhea, bed-wetting, allergies, ear infections, and other health problems). "Healthy food equals healthy kids," Henner writes.

Henner offers the large picture--how to adopt healthy eating habits yourself and instill them in your children--combined with helpful tips. Your challenges are different in the first years of your children's lives, she writes, when you are basically choosing their foods and modeling behavior you want them to follow, than later, when children are more independent and make more of their own...

From Publishers Weekly
Henner is on a health kick, and with this holiday cookbook she expands on the philosophy of books like her 30 Day Total Health Makeover. Covering holidays and traditions from Passover to Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year and Bastille Day, each chapter has reminiscences or historical tidbits, plus recipes, drinks, toasts and party suggestions. For Mother's Day and Father's Day, Henner suggests Wild Mushroom Stew and Snapper in Parchment for dinner and creating a "videotaped tribute" to parents for an activity; on Super Bowl Sunday, a homemade, easy Onion Dip with soy cream cheese replaces preservative-laden pre-made dips. Cooks can say goodbye to the fatty Thanksgivings of yesteryear with a Pilgrim Pumpkin Pie made with soy cream. The introduction outlines Henner's diet, which eliminates red meat, pork...

Book Review
Marilu Henner's familiar voice draws you into listening to her message of optimum health with a friendly, funny, and very professional delivery. (Henner is best known for her roles in Taxi, Evening Shade, and the Broadway musical Chicago.) She starts out by proclaiming how well she feels after nine solid years on what she calls the B.E.S.T. program--balance, energy, stamina, and toxin-free. There seems to be a twinkle in her voice, which may be attributed to the fact that she feels better and has more energy (or "Hennergy," as her family likes to call it) at 45 than she did in her 20s.

Listeners might want to keep a pad and pencil handy to write down some of the more specific directions, such as the 10 steps to optimum health and the basic rules of food combining. Henner's personal eating crusade--no dairy, no...
