Charlene Prickett combines brain with brawn on IT FIGURES, her long-running
exercise show for Lifetime Television. "I have a real academic streak,"
says Prickett. "I have a lot of interest in science and in keeping up with
the research that's always changing. Every year I go to fitness conferences
and sports-medicine clinics throughout the country, and I always like to
share what I've learned by including an information element in my shows."
So what does the latest research say about the most effective way to get a
good workout? Says Prickett, "In terms of being optimally effective,
cross-training - weight training, along with some stretching and aerobic
activity - has come to be thought of as important. The advantage is that
you don't stress the body in the same way every single day, and it prevents
injury as well as boredom."

Prickett also believes that women have to work harder than men at battling
the bulge. "When you're young or if you're a man, the likelihood of your
staying near ideal weight with exercise alone is good. However, if you're
female or over 25, it generally takes both regular exercise AND good food
choices. That doesn't mean you can never have an ice-cream sundae, but to
stay at or near ideal weight, you need to make discriminating food

For dressing: mix all ingredients and chill.

For salad: mix all ingredients except lettuce in a bowl, add dressing, and
chill for 1 hour. Arrange lettuce leaves in a salad bowl, add salad.

Garnish with lemon slices and chives.
