From the bestselling author of Strong Women Stay Young comes a metabolism-boosting plan that's completely hype-free. The basis of this book is simple: because muscle is metabolically active and fat is not, when you increase your muscle mass, you're able to burn more calories, even when at rest. The author, an assistant professor at Tufts University's prestigious School of Nutrition Science and Policy, has shown that of a group of women who followed a special weight-loss diet, those who also did weight-training exercises lost 44 percent more fat than the other women and increased their overall metabolic rates by up to 15 percent.

Nelson's plan is especially effective for women looking to drop postpregnancy weight. The book includes tests to determine your fitness level, injury-preventing stretches, dumbbell exercises that give quick results, progress charts, and pages of suggested menus and recipes that include handy shopping lists. The plan's goal is to increase muscle strength, not bulk, and it's geared toward first-time exercisers and those who lose motivation easily. For those who are skeptical of weight-loss books, rest assured that this one won't disappoint. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.


"This book is a gem...thoroughly based in science, yet written to help women get started immediately to make their lives better today. It's jam-packed with ready-to-go tools for success."
--Barbara Harris, editor in chief, Shape magazine

"Practical, easy-to-follow, and medically sound...This program combines the essentials for living a long, healthy, and physically active life."
--Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., author of The Aerobics Program for Total Well-Being

This is a great book for anyone wanting to lose weight and/or feel stronger and healthier. The plan is not fancy or elaborate. The book is an easy, enjoyable read. Regardless of how much you want to lose, this book is for you. Strength training is a major key to increasing your metabolism, so if this is something you've left out of your fitness routine, this book can help you lose those last few stubborn pounds. I also think it's written with sensitivity to people who are very overweight. She lets you determine the amount of calories you take in and she teaches you the basics of nutrition, helping you add variety to balance out your diet and fiber to help you feel full.
She also stresses the benefit of slow weight loss--only 1-2 pounds a week, which is much healthier, easier to stick with, and less likely to be gained back after you're finished.
This is a book about changing your whole attitude about health and fitness and about changing your habits for the rest of your life. I think it's really beneficial. Personally I would give it five stars. The reason I gave it four is because it is pretty basic information. There was nothing in the book that I hadn't heard before or didn't already know. I really did, however, like how plainly it was stated and how easy the plan is to follow.

What makes Strong Women Stay Slim so exciting is that it is based on recent scientific research and actual clinical trials with ordinary people at Tufts University's prestigious School of Nutrition.
I've tried lots of ways to lose weight, keep exercising and stay energetic and healthy. Last year I managed to lose 27 pounds. I put together my own program, after so many others had failed, with a trilogy of strategies. 1. a "count and record every calorie and gram of fat that goes into your mouth" diet, 2. enforced strength training through 3x per week physical therapy for my bad knees and shoulder, and 3. daily moderately brisk aerobic walking. I discovered that it takes this "trilogy" (Diet, Strength Training, and Aerobic Exercise) to really lose weight, keep it off, and feel healthy and energetic. I've never had satisfactory results trying just one of these and ignoring the others.
I recently picked up Strong Women Stay Slim and realized that M. Nelson had put together the three elements that had worked for me last summer in a very sensible, postitive, easy to follow accessible format which I now swear by. In the SWSS diet system you choose one of three claorie levels (1200, 1600, or 2000)and track certain numbers of fixed portion sizes for the various categories of food in the official food pyramid (insuring a well-balanced diet). This is MUCH easier and accomplishes the same thing as my laborious system. The strengthening exercises are simple and don't take much time (I no longer need PT!) And the aerobic exercise discussion may be simplisitic to avid atheletes, but is just right for the rest of us. The logs to keep track of your progress on all three fronts are well designed and easy to use.

As a nearly life-long dieter and minimal exerciser, I can't tell you how impressed I am with the results I've got from using this book, compared with others I've tried. I'd followed Strong Women Stay Young (which I also highly recommend for us 50-plussers) for about 10 weeks, so maybe that gave me a head start, at least in terms of getting me into a consistent exercising regime, but the food plan in SWSS is what really got me losing weight & trimming down in size. I've lost 3 kg/6.6 pounds, gone from tight slacks/jeans in Australian size 14 (U.S. 16, I think), to where my Aussie size 12s are too big - in about 10-12 weeks. I'm rarely hungry and have stopped craving or being satisfied with junk food. The book is enjoyable to read, the authors' credentials seem impeccable, and the food plan is nutritionally sound and so wonderfully flexible that even to say I'm on a diet feels somehow dishonest. With its "no-fad," "no frills" approach, SWSS has made me really believe I'll never be fat/flabby/weak again. I reckon Dr Nelson & colleagues have given me the tools to stay slim/toned/strong for a long time to come.

I bought this book after some period of inactivity when I just didn't feel like doing anything at all athletic. But this book was definitely a catalyst for changing my life for the better. Through careful research, Dr. Nelson shows that just lifting weights a few times a week helps women increase their metabolism and start losing weight. Well, I didn't follow her diet plan and just started doing some of the arm exercises. But that was enough to motivate me to start working out with videos (by The Firm) at home, and now five months later, I'm working out 5-6 days a week. I've lost weight, but more importantly, I feel stronger and healthier. The diet plan that she describes in this book seems very sound as well. This book is clear, easy to understand, and is not spouting some crazy fad diet which avoids particular food groups. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to start feeling better and more active and needs an easy to follow plan.
