9780060392437: The Anti-Aging Zone

How old are you now? Want to look younger, live longer, and feel better?

Enter the Anti-Aging Zone

With his #1 New York Times bestseller The Zone, Dr. Sears began revolutionizing nutritional thinking in America. Now, his cutting-edge hormonal-control research is elevated to a new level that promises to change forever how we look at aging.

No one wants to get old or show the signs of age. In fact, for centuries many have searched for, and often promised, the fountain of youth. So what makes The Anti-Aging Zone different?

In this new, breakthrough book. Dr. Sears goes beyond looking at food as simply a source of calories and explains the incredibly powerful biological effects it has on your hormones. From this unique perspective, food is more than a source of sustenance; it becomes the most powerful drug known to man. More important, it is the only drug proven to reverse the aging process. In addition to unraveling the mysteries of your hormones and their role in aging, Dr. Sears reveals the essential dietary information you need to start your own age-reversal journey. Using his simple and easy-to-follow program, you will be able to live longer and live better beginning with your very next meal.

As Dr. Sears explains, the aging process isn't caused as much by the depletion or lack of hormones as we get older, but rather by their impaired ability to communicate with each other. Little-known "super-hormones" called eicosanoids can reestablish the critical communications links between your hormones, which is the key to age reversal. The brilliance of this anti-aging approach is that these exceptionally powerful super-hormones can be altered by the foods you eat, and, in particular, by the Zone Diet.

Your body is a vast, complex biological Internet whose hormonal communication can be orchestrated with great precision by the Zone Diet. Hormones from melatonin to serotonin, from estrogen to testosterone, from cortisol to DHEA, can all be controlled if you are willing to treat food with the same respect as you would any prescription drug. Ultimately, hormonal miscommunication is the underlying cause of many conditions associated with "getting older" such as insomnia, wrinkles, dry and dull skin, waning sex drive, depression, chronic pain, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Using The Anti-Aging Zone as your guide, you can look and feel better that you ever imagined.

Millions of people like you are now facing the hard realities involved with getting older. Dr. Sears separates the hormonal hype from reality and gives you the necessary tools to add years to your life and improve your appearance. The Anti-Aging Zone is your passport to a longer and better life.

Enter the Anti-Aging Zone...you have the power to reverse aging beginning with your next meal.

Review:

Barry Sears started the diet movement of the decade with the Zone's 40-30-30 eating plan (40 percent carbohydrate, 30 percent each fat and protein). In The Anti- Aging Zone, Sears explains that he thinks aging is not caused so much by depleted hormone levels but by a lack of communication among hormones.

So what exactly do these hormones have to do with aging? Estrogen and testosterone levels affect sex drive and skin tone; a drop in melatonin can lead to insomnia. Wavering serotonin levels have been shown to be a factor in depression. Insulin gone haywire can mean diabetes. While the intricacies of these hormonal interrelationships are the makings of a graduate degree in endocrinology, Sears offers a layperson's short course. It boils down to this: the vastly complicated hormonal action in humans is controlled by eicosanoids, what he calls "super hormones." And eating in the way advocated by The Anti-Aging Zone, he argues, can help maintain proper eicosanoid functioning, thereby preventing the litany of health problems associated with aging--both mental and physical.

The Anti-Aging Zone is sure to be controversial: Sears recommends a daily intake of just 1,200 calories for women and 1,500 for men, about 40 percent fewer than the U.S. RDA. It's also not just a diet plan, but a lifestyle plan, with guidelines for meditation (to reduce levels of cortisol, a stress hormone) to improve brain longevity, and moderate amounts of exercise, including strength training. But Sears adds a solid guide to supplements (the essential, the important, the exotic and expensive) and herbs, and a rundown of the mind-body-diet connection. While The Anti-Aging Zone isn't especially easy to follow, it's an eye-opening and educational guide to the aging process and the control you have over your own health.
