28 DAYS TO A NEW YOU: A Complete Shape-up Program for Your Whole Body

Lightweight, benign tips on beauty, nutrition, and exercise--arranged into 28 little pieces aimed at creating a better figure and increasing sensuality (mostly by increasing blood flow to the pelvis). The exercises (different routines for each day) are mostly calisthenics and stretches, and all have melodious names (Persephone, Pandora, Daphne, Circe). The nutrition advice (""thinking right about fat,"" ""thinking right about protein"") is brief but sensible: use pinch tests to gauge degree of overweight, follow a balanced diet. Harris endorses massage (""it increases circulation and corrects the natural sag of tissue by stimulating the muscles under the skin""); gives routine hints on grooming (""use toothpicks after each meal to remove food particles""); and ponders questions of ""Sex and Your Figure"" (""there has been a great deal of speculation concerning the inadequacy of the missionary position""). Doubtful as a complete conditioning program; okay for spot tone-ups.
