Women, Weight & Exercise: For all the exercise I do, why aren’t I pencil-thin?

Have you ever counseled someone who says that they exercise but still cannot lose weight? Discover why it is folklore that the more women exercise, the more weight they will lose. Sports dietitian and author Nancy Clark will focus on prevalent myths relating to women, weight, and exercise.  Nancy will share her experiences helping frustrated diet-and-exercisers (both overweight women and lean athletes) on their journey to find peace with their eating and exercise programs and their bodies.  Register now!
