Are you trying to eat a more healthful diet, but having trouble giving up your favorite foods? Let Elaine Magee come to your rescue with more than 100 delicious recipes that look and taste like the ultimate indulgence but weigh in with far fewer fat grams than you would think. A registered dietitian, Elaine has been creating low-fat versions of America's favorite recipes for more than a decade: she knows the best low-fat recipe starts out with the best high-fat recipe. In Lighten Up! she's taken classic American dishes so loved they have been the favorites of generation after generation, and "enlightened" every one.

How about a decadent Chocolate Cheesecake with Chocolate Truffle Topping? The original recipe contained 19 grams of fat per serving; Elaine's made-over version has 9 grams. And all of the luscious creamy texture and taste. Feel guilty when you nibble on that crispy snack mix? Try Elaine's recipe, with half the fat grams, and see if you can tell the difference. Who said you can't have your cake and eat it too? Savor Crumb Coffee Cake with Broiled Topping with your morning coffee, and enjoy knowing you're consuming about half the fat grams in the original recipe.

Each recipe has a complete nutritional analysis of the original and the lighter version, so you can see how many fat grams and calories you've saved. And in a special chapter, Elaine shares her low-fat cooking secrets so you can transform your own family favorites: how to cut fat without sacrificing taste, texture, or appearance; which cooking methods work best; more healthful substitutes for high-fat and high-calorie ingredients; and much, much more.
