Teen Dieters Should Begin With Good Attitude ByGAYNORMADDOX Stand outside any high school around dismissal time and you will be surprised at the number of overweight boys and girls who emerge from the classrooms. This situation threatens their health and in many cases their activities. There are many diet books and diet plans available but one directed entirely toward the teenagers will help them more than one planned around overweight adults. A book I wrote several years ago called "Slim Down, Shape Up — Diets for Teen- agers," published by Avon, considers from a nutritional ingle and the social angle the problems of an overweight teenager. Although eating less but enough of the right kinds of food and an increase in daily physical activity are basic to your Dinner Includes Spareribs By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor DINNER FOR TWO Spicy Spareribs and Rice Corn and Green Limas Baked Custard SPICY SPARERIBS The ribs are simmered until tender before the sauce is added. 2 pounds (about) fresh pork spareribs, cut in lengthwise single ribs 2 cups water 1 medium onion, peeled 1 clove garlic, peeled and halved '/« cup molasses Vi cup ketchup 3 tablespoons prepared mustard In a 3-quart saucepan bring spareribs, water, onion and garlic to a boil; water should barely cover ribs.

Makes 4 servings. weight problem, there is the vitally important matter of emotional stability, too. One of the first steps toward attaining emotional stability if you are an overweight teen is to realize that being overweight may be unfortunate but is nothing to feel guilty about. It is a physical problem, not a moral one. The sooner you accept that fact yourself and make parents, relatives and associates who are critical realize it too, the sooner you will be able to escape from your unjustified feel- ings of despair, of inferiority, and of being unwanted. We must always keep in mind that it is much better to have a reasonably well-adjusted obese adolescent than to have a strenuously treated, confused and unhappy adolescent. ByTOMHOOE AP Wine and Food Writer . Prance is renowned for its haute cuisine, which some consider a costly and ingenious way of dressing up food with rich sauces. Less known in America is French regional cooking, which features some of the country's finest dishes. Many of the top French chefs come from the provinces, and regional cooking is their first love. Such a one is Antoine Bouterin, boyish-looking ruler of the kitchen in New York's Le . Perigord restaurant. Born 29 years ago in Provence, a region famous for dishes featuring garlic and olive oil, Bouterin is well : versed in haute cuisine. But he is intrigued by the regional fare of his homeland and hopes to bring out a book on provincial cooking. This interest is reflected m the menus of Le Perigord. From time to time it will specialize h? the dishes of a specific region, such as Normandy, which Bouterin recently saluted with a memorable souffle laced with calyados, the fiery apple brandy from Normandy. "In my book I plan to deal with recipes from 10 French provinces," Bouterin told me recently. "These gastronomical specialties will range from appetizers to soup, salad, entrees and, of course, desserts.'' The regional cooking of France runs the., culinary spectrum*'". There is the roast pork dressed:'.; with .prunes from Touraine, the ; classic boeuf Bourguignon from * .Burgundy and the truffle delights " of Bordeaux where this exotic !• fungus -grows. And hundreds of" other dishes. Bouterin formed an immediate;', attachment to New York, unlike ; some visitors to the city. He says, • however, his movements are • somewhat limited at the moment, 1 since he has not yet learned to speak English. Bouterin spends a good deal of : time perfecting the desserts in his new kitchen domain. One regional dish he serves is Gateau Leger, a specialty of Savoy, in the pro- . vince of French-Comte, known for its rich cream and butter. Here is his recipe: 6 egg yolks IVfe cups granulated sugar 2 cupy flour : 1 pound sweet butter, melted Zest of one lemon Pinch of salt 6 egg whites Preheat oven to 350 degrees. ; Whisk egg yolks and sugar- together until thick and lemon yellow. Add flour, melted butter, lemon zest and salt. Mix well. Beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold whites into first mixture. Butter a rectangular cake pan and dust with sugar. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Get $5SQ Worth of Groceries FREE From Community @ Coffee. Here's how it works.
