Book Description Rupa Publications India Pvt. Ltd. Softcover. Condition: New. Lifestyle Management promotes the idea of a positive lifestyle and a change in the behavior of people with respect to their routines. It is aimed at helping people improve and control their health. Get Size Wise: Training For Life For The Indian Woman is all about emphasizing on health rather than weight, which is the key to all weight-related problems for Indian women. The author firmly believes that fitness can enhance the quality of oneā s life. The book seeks to inform the reader that fitness is not only about losing weight. Most women tend to ignore this fact, which is why despite strict dieting schedules and all kinds of efforts, they are still mostly unable to attain the perfect figure that they desire. The book pays attention to certain body types and their metabolism. The author identifies the four essential pillars for fitness as strength, flexibility, stamina and endurance. Get Size Wise: Training For Life For The Indian Woman also advises on how one can achieve optimum levels in each of these four pillars by laying out ideal exercise schedules, information tables and suggestions regarding the right diet. The author also says that a person should identify the signals that their body gives them and take steps that match their comfort level. She stresses that following the wrong fitness regime can do a lot of harm instead of doing any good. She also talks about how walking is quite a beneficial exercise and how the advantages of walking must be made known to children. Also, according to the author, lifestyle management is not only about exercise but also about the right food and a personā s psychology. The author has included in the book a case study on the life of one of her clients who took to expensive fitness clubs, an extremely restricted diet and a medicine by the name of Lasix, to reduce her weight. It was observed that even though the client lost weight initially, she ultimately went back to her original weight and even had health problems due to the medicine she had taken. Printed Pages: 0.
