The Bodywise Woman is more than just another women's health book--it's a complete guide for the active woman. Written from a woman's point of view, the book offers hard-to-find information on women's health specifically as it relates to physical activity. It combines research with women's personal experiences to present practical, scientifically sound advice.

Based on 14 years of studies by the Melpomene Institute, the only research organization in the United States devoted to women's health and physical activity, this second edition offers the same easy-to-read style and understanding tone as the popular first edition, but the content has been revised in light of new research. Some sections have also been expanded, including those on menopause, body shape and weight issues, and physical activity for children. Plus, the book's improved visual presentation makes it even more enjoyable to read and helps to highlight important points.

The Bodywise Woman addresses topics that cover the entire lifespan. Each chapter brings its subject matter to life with a profile of a real person facing an issue discussed in that chapter. The book first examines how society's view of active women has changed over the years. Next, it provides answers to questions such as:


-Why do women consistently choose ideal body shapes that are 20 percent underweight?

-Will physical activity alleviate menstrual cramps?

-What are the real reasons behind menstrual dysfunction?

-Does exercise put pregnant women at risk?

-What is the most important positive influence on your child's desire to be physically active?

-What changes can you expect as you age?
You'll also learn how to choose and start an exercise program you'll enjoy, stay motivated to stick with it, and avoid injury. Specific guidelines are offered for eight favorite activities, including walking, water exercise, and weightlifting.

Whether you are already enjoying the benefits of physical activity or are just considering becoming more active, The Bodywise Woman is the perfect guide to help you deepen your commitment and make informed choices about your health and lifestyle.
