Common sense advice with good clinical research to back it up. No extremes here. The plan is moderate enough that for once I can stick to a plan when I want to. When I don't want, to the problem is me not the plan.

It has been said that the more muscle you have the easier it is for your body to burn fat. This is why “Strong Women Stay Slim” is a great book. It teaches women the basics of weight lifting and why it is so important to eat right, strength train, and incorporate cardio into their daily routines. I especially liked the fact that this book did not tell me simply what to do, it told me why I should do it, and how.

I read this author back in the lat 1990 in prevention magazine. I found this Doctor to be very informative about exercising and its effects on a woman's body.

Fairly no-nonsense, gimmick-free advice. I skimmed large sections but am excited to try the strength-training plan.
