The article discusses how a physically fit but overweight woman, Jen Sall, lost 42 pounds. After joining a gym and signing up with a personal trainer, Sall learned that crash diets and inconsistent workouts would not help her lose weight. Instead, Sall's personal trainer taught Sall to eat five or six small and nutritious meals a day. Sall lost weight slowly but has kept the 42 pounds she lost off for five years.
