The correct combination of diet, exercIse, water, and rest produces a well-defined body, according to top fitness expert Dr. Ellington Darden. In fact, if you're an average woman and if you follow his proven six-week plan, featured in "Body Defining," you can expect to lose:
  • 13 pounds of fat
  • 2 3/4 inches off your waist
  • 2 1/4 inches off your hips
  • 3 1/2 inches off your thighs
During the fat-reduction process, you can also expect to add 3 1/2 pounds of body-enhancing muscle, making your physique stronger, firmer, and more symmetrical. "Body Defining" includes a wide variety of routines that tighten and shape hips and thighs, flatten the stomach, and work out the shoulders and arms, helping to counterbalance a dominant lower body. The entire program is easy to follow and includes carefully researched menus, at-home exercises, strength-training equipment instructions, and maintenance guidelines. In addition, "Body Defining" is illustrated with inspirational before- and-after photos of women who have transformed their figures through Dr. Darden's effective six-week program. Dr. Ellington Darden was recently honored by the President's Council of Physical Fitness and Sports as one of the Healthy American Fitness Leaders. His 43 books have sold more than four million copies, and his lectures and workshops are popular throughout the United States and Canada. Darden lives in Gainesville. Florida.

About the author (1996)

Ellington Darden has a goal: to help people live leaner and stronger longer. For the lost thirty years he has worked with thousands of men and women who wanted to feel better physically, look more attractive, and improve overall health through a disciplined approach to nutrition and exercise.

He holds bachelor's and master's degrees in physical education from Baylor University and a doctorate in exercise science from Florida State University. Two years of postdoctoral study in food and nutrition set him on the trail that led to the ASAP program.

Dr. Darden was director of research for Nautilus Sports/Medical Industries for seventeen years. There he helped develop and popularize the highly acclaimed Nautilus exercise machines. Today, Dr. Darden is the founder and chairman of Living Longer Stronger, a corporation devoted to science and education.

His outstanding research, which is applied in his books, is one reason he was recently honored by the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports as one of the top ten health leaders in the United States. "A Flat Stomach ASAP" is Dr. Darden's forty-fourth book.
