Comprehensive, lively, and easy to understand, this is the definitive guide to living a longer, healthier, happier life -- packed with practical programs, strategies, and tips that will defy the aging process.

New research shows that we can easily stretch our life expectancies from the current seventy-six years to as long as one hundred years by making a few simple changes in what we eat and how we live. And it's never too late to start -- that's where Age-Proof Your Body comes in.

Elizabeth Somer, MA., R.D., has assessed literally thousands of studies, and in this genuinely vital guide she shares the diet, recipes, fitness, and supplement plans that will add years of healthy, happy life and foster the mental outlook that promotes longevity and vitality.

No other book is as comprehensive as this one. It combines current nutrition research with practical dietary/health guidelines that you can use immediately to age-proof your body -- from sneaky ways to meet your body's need for fruit and vegetables to a dietary strategy that protects your eyesight . . . from mood-enhancing snacks to midday energy boosters from avoiding kidney stones to averting Alzheimer's with your diet and environment. . . even how to sift through the facts and fallacies about the latest anti-aging pills from DHEA to growth hormones . . . and much, much more.

Learn to lower your risk for many diseases, heighten your sex life, sail through menopause, and enhance your immune system. Discover how to beat body fat, improve your appearance, and increase your stamina. The secret of a long and healthy life is in your hands -- Age-Proof Your Body!

Review:

Aging, one could argue, is the great triumph of our modern society. "In this century alone," Somer writes, "women have increased their life expectancy by 71 percent, while men's life expectancy has improved 66 percent." That would be wonderful news, except that increased longevity brings with it so many things we don't want, from wrinkles to memory loss, from increased body fat to decreased hearing and vision.

Researchers have been looking at these problems carefully, and Age-Proof Your Body is a first-rate guide to what science knows and how to use that knowledge to age gracefully and energetically. Since Somer is a nutritionist, the book's best and most specific advice is in that area. There's good information on exercise and lifestyle choices, but the strongest sections show specific ways to eat better for the purpose of heading off age-related diseases and dysfunctions.

Commendably, Somer points out where strong science ends and guessing begins. For example, she recommends eating many small meals throughout the day, rather than two or three big ones, but notes that researchers haven't figured out why this works to keeps weight down--only that it does. --Lou Schuler
