Decreased metabolism is a major reason that woman gain weight as they age. This is often the result of an increasingly sedentary lifestyle and age-related loss of lean muscle tissue. Scientific research has shown that strength training increases metabolism – a key to permanent weight loss – by as much as 15%. When combined with aerobic exercise, strength training can help women of all ages lose weight and keep it off for a lifetime.
The Stay Slim program is based upon Strong Women Stay Slim (Bantam Books, 1998) which outlines the extraordinary fat-fighting power of strength training combined with a healthy, varied diet and calorie burning exercise. Whether you are trying to lose a few stubborn pounds, struggling with post-pregnancy weight gain, or battling a lifelong weight problem, the Stay Slim program is for you.
