From the bestselling authors of Strong Women Stay Young, an exciting, medically sound program to help you boost your metabolism and melt away fat!

Scientific research has shown that strength training increases metabolism--a key to permanent weight loss--by as much as 15 percent. In fact, a Tufts University study comparing women on identical diet plans found that the strength-training group lost 44 percent more fat than the diet-only group.

Strong Women Stay Slim has everything you need to shape up and feel great--no matter what your age or fitness level:

Fully illustrated exercises especially designed for weight loss
Up-to-the-minute information about weight, appetite, nutrition, and fitness--explaining why this program works
A hunger-free food plan, including menus and delicious recipes from award-winning cookbook author Steven Raichlen
Progress logs and extra guidance for the first ten weeks
Motivational secrets...and more
