Dare to Lose
will help women design personalized weight-loss programs geared to their individual needs. In her trademark no-nonsense, in-your-face style, Shari Lieberman candidly challenges women to get serious and commit to a lifelong program.
Permanent weight loss is elusive for many women, and it is Lieberman's acknowledgment of this fact that makes this book so refreshing. "You have to want it, and want it bad," she says. Her disarming girlfriend-to-girlfriend tone promotes instant accessibility, and readers will feel they have a personal coach in the weight-loss battle.
Lieberman explains the importance of metabolism to weight loss, pointing out the factors that slow down metabolism-such as stress, yo-yo and crash dieting, and sedentary lifestyles-and ways to counteract them. Her four-step program includes eliminating stress and toxins from the body; following sound nutrition guidelines; engaging in fat-burning, muscle-building exercise; and taking nutritional supplements that help boost metabolism for quick, yet lasting, results.
Dare to Lose is an innovative approach to weight loss that provides a lifetime plan for losing weight and keeping it off forever.
