Statistically, black women are the segment of the American population most likely to suffer from obesity. Slim Down Sister is the first book to address this issue specifically, and does so in a constructive manner with the emphasis on getting healthy as opposed to skinny. Slim Down Sister not only explains why black women need to address weight (which is strongly linked to such potentially life-threatening illnesses as diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease) but also acknowledges the role that African-American social customs, eating habits, and leisure preferences play in contributing to weight problems. Filled with real-life stories about women who have lost weight and kept it off, this inspirational book provides an easy-to-follow, gimmick-free program for eating well - including thirty-five delicious recipes for low-fat versions of traditional favorites, exercising, and setting up an all-important emotional support system.
