Women's Health Perfect Body Diet: The Ultimate Weight Loss and Workout Plan to Drop Stubborn Pounds and Get Fit for Life

Women's Health Perfect Body Diet: The Ultimate Weight Loss and Workout Plan to Drop Stubborn Pounds and Get Fit for Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lets face it—women simply do not shed pounds or build muscle as easily as men do. Drawing on fascinating recent research that has shed new light on the gender differences in food metabolism and the effect of exercise, the editors of Womens Health, the healthy lifestyle magazine for todays active woman on the go, have devised a weight-loss plan that works especially well for women who would like to lose 5-25 pounds.

Key features of Womens Health Perfect Body Plan include:

  • Glucomannan, a soluble fiber that helps dieters feel full faster—and therefore eat less throughout the day

  • Meal plans that contain at least 40 grams of fiber per day

  • An adjustment for the impact of female hormones on weight loss (women need a higher protein diet than men to increase lean body tissue and decrease body fat)

  • Dieting techniques that revolve around psychological needs and personal goals and lifestyle

  • Two diet plans to choose from—one higher in fats and lower in carbs; the other higher in carbs and lower in fats (simple food tests help women choose the type they need)

In addition to the customized eating plan—complete with 75 easy-to-prepare recipes—there is a vigorous customized fitness program consisting of 50 exercises that brings results in just three weeks.

Synopsis:

For the millions of women trying to drop a size or two, "Womens Health" offers a proven, fiber-based diet tailored to womens specific needs, including the way their bodies metabolize food and respond to exercise. Illustrated.

Synopsis:

Carrying the trusted Womens Health name and featured on the Today show and in Time magazine, this diet combines a customized eating program with a body-shape-specific exercise plan. Women all over the country are discovering how it transforms their bodies in record time. Keys to the plans success include:
customization for a womans hormonal balance, body shape and current weight, individual metabolism, personal goals, and lifestyle
two types of balanced-macronutrient diets— Greens and Berries (slightly lower in carbs, higher in fats) and Grains and Fruits (lower in fat, higher in carbs)—with tests to show a woman which type she needs
glucomannan, a natural, soluble fiber that when used properly makes one feel full faster, stay satisfied longer, and consequently eat less
2 weeks of meal plans, more than 80 easy-to-prepare recipes using glucomannan, and 73 exercises
Thanks to Womens Health Perfect Body Diet by Cassandra Forsythe, MS, every woman has the tools to achieve her personal best and make her own body the best it can be.
