Dare to Lose

Dare to Lose is an empowering, innovative approach to weight loss that can help anyone transform their bodies and rev up their metabolism to keep weight off forever. In her trademark no-nonsense style, Shari Lieberman candidly challenges women to get serious and commit to her lifelong weight-loss program, geared to their individual needs.

Lieberman explains the importance of metabolism in weight loss, pointing out the factors that slow down metabolism-such as stress, yo-yo and crash dieting, and sedentary lifestyles-and ways to counteract them. Her four-step program includes eliminating stress and toxins from the body; following sound nutrition guidelines; engaging in fat-burning, muscle-building exercise; and taking nutritional supplements that help boost metabolism for quick yet lasting results.

My co-author, Shari Lieberman, Ph.D., CNS, FACN, is a faculty member at the University of Bridgeport, School of Human Nutrition. She runs a private practice as a clinical nutritionist in New York City, where she frequently counsels women on weight loss.
