Description - Fight Fat After Forty by Pamela Peeke
It is not only food that can make you fat in midlife - so can stress. After the age of 40, the accrued stresses of a lifetime and the inevitable onset of the perimenopause begin to take their physical toll on a woman. This toxic stress builds emergency fat inside the body and leads to bad eating regimes, particularly in the over-forties. In this handbook clinician and scientist Pamela Peeke explains her plan for fighting stress-eating and shedding "toxic weight" for ever. She offers a three-pronged approach of stress-resilient nutrition, stress-resilient physical activity and stress-resilient "regrouping" (keeping motivated). She also helps you identify your stress profile and eating pattern and offers a healthy eating programme to suit your body. A weekly exercise and stress-reducing programme is included.
