The most potent new weight loss tool discovered by the medical community is strength training. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Joan Lunden learned this from their personal trainers -- but they didn't share the details of their strength training programs with the public. "Strong Women Stay Slim" is the first book to combine the extraordinary health benefits of strength training with a medically proven weight-loss plan.

With Dr. Nelson's strength training program, women boost their metabolism and shed fat forever, while building muscle and bone. Scientific research has shown that metabolism (a key to permanent weight loss) can be increased 15% by strength training. In fact, a Tufts University study comparing women who followed identical diet plans found that the strength-training group lost 44% more fat than the diet-only group.

"Strong Women Stay Slim" has everything a woman needs to shape up and feel great:
-- Strength training exercises especially designed for weight loss
-- Healthy hunger-free food plan, with menus and recipes by award-winning cookbook writer Steven Raichlen
-- Motivational secrets from sports psychology that boost self-esteem
-- Inspiring stories from women who became trim and fit
-- Up-to-the-minute scientific information about weight, appetite, nutrition, and fitness
-- Fully illustrated step-by-step instructions, plus a ten-week workbook
