Walk Away the Pounds : The Breakthrough 6-Week Program That Helps You Burn Fat, Tone Muscle, and Feel Great Without Dieting
Losing weight has never been easier or more fun than with Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds. For over twenty-five years, Leslie has helped more women get off the couch and onto their feet than anyone else in the fitness industry. Her secret? If you can walk, you can achieve the weight-loss goals you dream about...with none of the intimidation or negative messages that have stopped you from succeeding before.
Whether you are a beginner or have been walking with Leslie for years, whether you are a teen or a senior or somewhere in between, you will see results. You will lose real weight, and keep it off-twenty pounds, forty, sixty, or even more. All you need is fifteen minutes a day for starters, two feet, and a willing attitude. There is no fancy equipment to buy, no fad diet to follow, and no fitness club to join.
The revolutionary program in Walk Away the Pounds is designed to keep everybody on the path to success, especially those who have never been able to complete a weight-loss plan before. It's a simpler approach to fitness, one that can change your life. Leslie's step-by-step workbook format sets up the program day by day. You just wake up, flip open the page, and follow the directions. You'll get a combination of in-home walking (that's right, you can do it right from the comfort of your own living room!), simple strength training, motivational breakthroughs, and commonsense advice to help you burn fat, tone muscle, reduce stress, avoid illness, shake off the blues, and boost your energy level sky high.
It's never been easier. Women all across America have dropped between 20 and 150 pounds with Leslie Sansone. Now you can too!
Twenty-five-year fitness industry veteran Sansone, whose videos have been megahits for the shopping network QVC, shares a nonintimidating, friendly workbook that promises to help overweight adults (she targets women, though men could certainly benefit from her advice, too) drop pounds and pick up energy. "Walking just thirty minutes a day, three times a week," she says, "reduces the risk of death from natural causes by 55%." That being fit will help you live longer isn't news, but Sansone's simple approach is refreshing. She details a six-week program that combines walking and basic strength training, promising readers they'll burn calories, lose fat, firm muscle, boost energy and reduce stress. With its daily log and continual encouragement, the book will best suit those new to exercise who aren't sure how or where to begin and need constant assurance (though Sansone does include a power walk program for readers who are already walking regularly or have completed the basic program). She interweaves her program notes with personal stories from women who've successfully "walked away the pounds" (20, 60 and even 100 pounds). This nonthreatening, accessible exercise plan should be a boon for those who are reluctant or unable to practice more intense exercise.
