Summary

Fanciful dreams of gold-medal glory led Jennifer Sey to the local gymnastics club in 1976. A natural aptitude and a willingness to endure punishing hard work took her to the elite ranks by the time she was eleven years old. Jennifer traveled the country and the world competing for the U.S. National team, but the higher she set her sights—the world championships, the 1988 Olympics—the more she began to ignore her physical and mental well-being. Jennifer suffered devastating injuries, developed an eating disorder, and lived far from family and friends, all for the sake of winning. When her parents and coaches lost sight of her best interests, Jennifer had no choice but to redefine her path into adulthood. She had to save herself. 
Chalked Up delivers an unforgettable coming-of-age story that will resonate with anyone who has ever felt not good enough and has finally come to accept who they were meant to be.

    History of the Dukan Diet 
    There are many weight loss diets that can be seen in the television, internet, magazines, and books. The question is do they really work? Some may work but others don’t. The problem with many weight loss regimens is they offer quick weight loss but after the weight loss process, they fail to maintain such weight and eventually the excess pounds come again. The Dukan Diet however begs to differ. This book talks about a proven weight loss diet—the Dukan Diet. The Dukan Diet is not new because it has been there for over thirty years but it only became popular and available outside France recently after the publication of Pierre Dukan’s book The Dukan Diet. It is a fact that the success of the book is not due to marketing or advertising but because readers who found the diet effective passed it on through word-of-mouth. 
    The founder of the Dukan diet, Dr. Pierre Dukan, is a medical doctor from France. He has a 40 year experience in relation with clinical nutrition and worked with at least 40,000 patients who have weight problems. As a young doctor in Montparnasse area, he was exposed to people with weight problems. With the idea of losing weight by eating food with low calories that he learned from medical school, he began his journey of developing a weight loss program. As he saw it, there are many low-calorie diets which do not work; this is the reason why he developed a weight loss program.
