Women, Weight, and Exercise

Are you working hard but not losing fat?


Host Nancy Clark, MS, RD, CSSD, renowned author of Nancy Clark's Sports Nutrition Guidebook, Fifth Edition and board-certified specialist in sports dietetics with a private practice in the Boston area, is known for her ability to translate the science of nutrition for exercise and health into practical tips to enhance performance, manage weight, and resolve eating disorders.


Her webinar focuses on the frustrations of women (both athletes and fitness exercisers) who exercise to manage their weight--but have little success with losing undesired body fat. Topics include dispelling the myth the lightest athlete is the best athlete; a review of the literature regarding exercise and weight loss in women; and answers to the questions women commonly ask regarding exercise and weight management.
After this presentation, the attendee will be able to:
1. Cite two myths regarding women and exercise.
2. Cite two reasons why people should exercise for health rather than for weight reduction.
3. Cite research indicating exercise may not contribute to significant weight loss in women.
