9780316051743: Dr. Bob Arnot's Guide to Turning Back the Clock

In his bestselling Guide to Turning Back the Clock, Dr. Bob Arnot showed men everywhere how to look younger, feel younger, be younger Now, in his new book, he reveals the secrets of permanent weight loss for both men and women -- and gives us a breakthrough eating plan for the twenty-first century.

Drawing on up-to-the-minute research in many disciplines, Arnot demonstrates that foods act like drugs on the body: some invariably promote weight gain and make us feel terrible; others almost guarantee weight loss and make us feel terrific. Armed with these findings, Arnot shows step-by-step how anyone can discover new energy, shed unwanted pounds, and never suffer from hunger pangs -- simply by eating the right foods in the right combinations. Complete with the most potent food charts ever assembled -- a complete arsenal of foods to promote weight control -- plus fat-loss accelerators, fat-ripping exercises, tips on dining in restaurants, and much more, Dr. Bob Arnot's Perfect Weight Control for Men and Women,is the ultimate guide for everyone who wants to feel great, lose weight, and look great.

Review:

Let's say you're a 50-, 40-, or even 30-year-old man. Maybe you want to evict that donut of fat that's moved into the space where your waist used to be, or it could be that the hike upstairs has you rethinking that downstairs bathroom you never installed, or perhaps you just saw a picture of your 19-year-old self in your football uniform. Or maybe you just want to be healthier and fitter than you already are. Well, you can be--and Dr. Bob will tell you exactly how to do it, with an engaging writing style, vast enthusiasm, and an emphasis on fast results.

In this for-men-only book (because "It has become politically incorrect for men to write books for women"), Dr. Bob Arnot--of NBC News medical correspondent fame--will convince even the most committed sloth that a 25-year-old body can be only months away. According to Arnot, revolutions in fitness technology, nutrition, and sports medicine now make it possible for a middle-ager to bench press the years back to a biological age of 25 or so--in as little as six months. Arnot calls on an impressive array of experts and scientific findings to bolster his prescription: an eat-as-much-as-you-want diet of low-fat, whole-grain foods--and play!

Arnot offers advice on sports as play for adults (alpine skiing, aerobic tennis, power blading, mountain biking, and snow blading--also known as cross-country skiing), including the challenges of new skills, getting the right coach, smart training, and fast recoveries. Nutrition plays a big part in the Arnot regimen, and he offers up information on nutritional snacks and sports food, multicultural cuisine ideas, as well as recipes and dietary supplements.

"If there is a fountain of youth, it is the heavy metal in your local gym," Arnot says, because the real fitness pitfall for the not-20-anymore man is muscle loss. From deltoids to dumbbells and pecs to pull-ups, Arnot runs down gym musts and hows in an illustrated weight-training program. Add Arnot's visualization techniques and aphorisms to the mix ("Conventional Wisdom: Go with the flow. New Paradigm: Aging is a cultural trap that programs men to abuse, misuse, and disuse their bodies"), and men past the "golden age" of their 20s may well find that the goal of getting fit, staying fit, and rewinding the biological clock is truly within reach. --Stefanie Durbin

From Publishers Weekly:

Before tackling the serious discussion of improved diet and fitness, Arnot, medical correspondent for CBS News and a self-described "aerobic animal," recounts his own exhaustive adventurous in exercise land. His exuberance sets the stage for this substantive, sensible guide addressed to the 30-to 60-year-old male. Arnot contends that men within this age span can crank back the hands on their biological clocks by changing their diet (high on slow-burning carbohydrates and fiber, low on fatty proteins and sugars) and by beginning a vigorous program of aerobics and weight-training. An extensive chapter on multicultural eating names healthful dishes (not recipes) from various ethnic cuisines. An illustrated and user-friendly guide to weight training includes excercises that anyone can do at the gym. Much here will be equally useful to female readers.
