|From the Publisher
Strong Women Stay Slim is the first book to combine the
extraordinary fat-fighting power of strength training with a safe, medically proven
weight-loss program. Scientific research has shown that strength training increases
metabolism - a key to permanent weight loss - by as much as 15 percent. No matter what
your age or fitness level, you can start tomorrow with six simple, no-sweat exercises you
can do at home or in the office. You'll feel stronger, more energetic and vital almost
From Library Journal:
Nelson's Strong Women Stay Young (LJ 1/97) demonstrated how a
weight-training program can prevent or reduce the balance problems and osteoporosis that
are sometimes considered a "normal" part of aging. Here she shows how a simple
program of weight training, aerobics, and sensible eating can improve one's figure without
necessarily resulting in weight loss per se. The usual diet plans often result in a loss
of lean muscle tissue and bone density; pounds are lost, but so is muscle tone and bone
strength, while the actual amount of fat remains the same, causing potential health
problems in several areas. Nelson's program, which avoids these problems, has multiple
benefits and is easy to follow. Menus and recipes are included. Highly recommended.
From Barnes and Noble:
From the bestselling authors
of STRONG WOMEN STAY YOUNG comes this plan for losing weight sensibly and healthily with
the metabolism-boosting power of strength training. Miriam Nelson's research at the School
of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University indicates that in combination with a
nutritious diet and an increase in physical activity, strength training can prove the key
not just to successful weight loss, but to increased vitality and lifelong health. In
STRONG WOMEN STAY SLIM, she provides a simple ten-week plan that combines strength
training exercises with a healthy, nonrestrictive diet for slow, safe weight loss. Unlike
most diet books, this excellent and rigorously researched effort offers a regimen that
leads not only to weight loss, but to all-around better health.
