After more than 20 years as a weight-loss and fitness expert, Jim Karas had seen enough body types to grasp one thing for sure : petite women's greatest advantage is also their best disadvantage-their bodies have the potentiality to change speedily. Now, if you'd like to shed weight and you have got the right programme, this is great news. But if you're under pressure, have developed bad dieting habits, and became sedentary, it's catastrophic.
And petite women know this! They've studied their lanky chums eat pizza and drink lager without gaining an oz., while they swiftly gained the legendary freshman 15. They've studied their taller gal chums instantly drop the baby weight, while they still made excuses as their babies turned to babes. Here is the take away : shorter ladies are brilliantly poised to lose weight, more quickly regain their shape, and add more muscle mass than their taller sisters and mates.
They will see why cardiovascular workouts-in the type of all those bikes, steppers, and elliptical machines-are really an extraordinary way for petites to add weight. And, because petite ladies are often quicker, more flexible, and more structurally aligned, they'll speedily understand why strength training is their shortcut to tall benefits. From plate sizes to dress sizes, everything in this plan is the ideal fit for any girl 5'4 and under. The best news of all? For petite folks, tiny changes can really add up. Jim Karas is a life-style expert who combines a degree from the Wharton School of Business with over twenty-six years of unique success in helping folks look and feel their very best. He is the author of three New York Times top selling books, including the one bestseller The Business Plan for the Body. Jim has been the fitness contributor on ABC's Good Morning America and is commonly seen on The View, and The Dr. The Specialized Plan for Women 5'4″ and Under.
