Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In its original edition, David Zinczenko's Abs Diet for Women became a bestseller because it's not just a sensible 6-week weight loss plan; it's packed with the health details that modern women need. It included an osteoporosis prevention plan; tips on managing menopausal symptoms without hormone replacement therapy; information on coping with joint pain and improving sexual response; a postpartum workout for new moms; and bonus workout chapter that tones the body and calms the mind. This revised, improved edition contains also those features and a plethora of new useful tips, body-sculpting exercises, and delicious, fresh from the kitchen recipes that contain fat-burning, immune system-building ingredients. Bound to be a bestseller.
