The 2nd Edition of the ACE Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant Manual (with companion DVD) has been completely overhauled and features an increased focus on the psychological aspects of weight management, as well as more in-depth coverage of the physiology of obesity and the techniques of lifestyle coaching. References and suggested readings have been updated throughout, as have the statistical information and guidelines.

This is not a revision of the existing manual, but rather an entirely new textbook designed to meet the day-to-day challenges of today's lifestyle & weight management consultants. This all-new manual is broken into seven sections: exercise science, behavioral science, nutritional science, screening, assessment, and referral, program design and implementation, special considerations, and legal, professional, and ethical considerations.
