About the Author

Covert Bailey is a popular PBS personality and best-selling author on fitness and nutrition, whose Fit or Fat series of books has sold nearly 6 million copies. One of the first to emphasize body fat and body fat testing, he has taught millions of people about low-fat eating and adopting flexible exercise programs that are both fun and healthy. Covert Bailey earned his undergraduate degree at Harvard and received a M.S. degree in biochemistry from MIT. He likes to say that his training in graduate school was spent with fit rats and fat rats.


'In my little way I'm going to rattle the world, ' proclaims Covert Bailey, who already rattled the world when he changed the way America looked at weight loss and exercise with his original Fit or Fat in the mid-1970s. Now he's back with a new spin on the Fit or Fat principles. This small book (180 pages, about 5 by 8 inches) teaches you how to get fit faster and raise your metabolism. To improve your fitness level most quickly, Bailey recommends his Four Food Groups of Good Exercise: aerobic exercise, cross training (varying your exercise choices), wind sprints (exercising, but my body is changing into a better butter-burning machine, he says. The purpose of my exercise is to change my chemistry. As we expect from Covert, his style is clever and feisty--the book is fun to read, and the information goes down easily. He offers some witty, memorable principles, such as The more muscle an exercise uses, the less long you gotta do it!, If you're fit, exercise long; if you're fat, go short but often, and this motto for the older exerciser: When you are over the hill--you pick up speed! He includes a body-fat test and a find-your-pace fitness test. --Joan Price
