THE RIGHT MOVES guides girls along the right path to total fitness, inside and out. Part 1, "Empowerment," encourages them to have a positive attitude and treat themselves well. Part 2, "Food Is Your Fuel," teaches girls the truth about "fat-free" foods; how to read the nutrition labels on food packaging; why it's important to eat fruits and vegetables and limit fats; how to eat smart at home, at school, on dates, and at the mall-and why crash diets don't work. Part 3, "Bodies in Motion," invites girls to get pumped up about fitness. Chapters explore cross-training; finding a fitness plan that really works, why sweat is "sweet;" and how to warm up, stretch, cool down, and avoid or treat exercise-related injuries.
Filled with quizzes, quotes, up-to-date facts, fun activities, and common-sense advice, this book inspires young women to take care of their bodies, get and stay healthy, and believe in themselves.
