How did the Egyptians make the pyramids? What is Stonehenge? Life is filled with fat-burning questions, and after watching these two tapes from perky Denise Austin, host of her own ESPN fitness show, there is a new riddle to solve: How can this girl smile through these routines? She must be bionic. Austin says The 30-Minute Fat Burning Workout is low impact. Ha! Eight minutes into it, you will see stars. Stretch & Flex is slower. You can even nosh a little while doing the limbering exercises. But here's a warning: Eat too much and you'll have to pop in the other tape. (Parade Video, $19.95 each; 800-548-8927)
