Why do men seem to lose weight more easily than women?

A fitness trainer at Yale University will discuss that and other issues during a weight-loss class geared to women on Wednesday, Feb. 29, at the Fairfield Public Library.

Linda Gottlieb will offer two classes -- one at noon, the other at 7 p.m. -- at the main branch library, 1080 Old Post Road.

Gottlieb is a fitness coach, author and cancer exercise trainer at Yale. She will talk about "the seven guy habits that can help you slim down, get strong and help you be healthier," the library said in a news release.

She will talk about the perspective of exercise as medicine and discuss how movement can benefit the body after disease diagnosis, treatment and beyond.

The program is free but registration is required/
