9780060817022: The Real Age Makeover: Take Years Off Your Looks and Add Them to Your Life

Thousands of Britons are younger today than they were five years ago. How is that possible? By following the specific recommendations that reverse aging in the bestselling book "RealAge: Are You as Young as You Can Be?" people who were previously much older than their chronological age have now taken ten, fifteen, up to 24 years off of their biological age. It's been called The RealAge Makeover. Since the first book came out, Roizen and his team learned much more about the process of aging. Think about it: there is something in the news practically every day pertaining to age-related diseases - one food is found to increase the risk of heart disease, while another has been found to decrease it. In "The RealAge Makeover", Dr. Roizen makes sense of these recent critical medical findings and offers steps that will reduce or even prevent 80 per cent of the diseases that make you feel or be older. With all this information, Roizen believes you can control your genes to a very large degree. For example, just eating the right chocolate or drinking a little coffee can help you reduce inflammation dramatically and preserve your arteries, joints, and memory.

But the wrong choice can lead to needless aging and loss of energy. And "The RealAge Makeover" tells you how much (in years) each choice is worth so you can make the choices that are meaningful for you. Why not live at 60 feeling like you did at 35? More potent than any statistic or finding, however, are the personal stories interwoven throughout the book - success stories from readers who followed the RealAge program and made themselves over significantly. They became younger biologically and are living happier, healthier lives.

Review:

In The RealAge Makeover, Dr Michael Roizen hopes to discover a cure for the common birthday. Author of the bestselling RealAge and Oprah guru, Roizen translates groundbreaking medical research into a series of calculations and choices that promise to reduce age-linked symptoms and diseases. The RealAge Makeover begins with a self-test of 132 health factor questions that compare your calendar age with your "real age"--based on healthy habits plus heredity, he rounds up the usual suspects (sun exposure, sleep patterns, good fats) as well as the unusual (the kind of chocolate you eat, the number of nagging unfinished tasks). Although Roizen flags heredity, he focuses on the three key factors of ageing: arteries (heart attack, stroke, memory loss), immune systems (prostrate and breast cancer), and environmental stresses (lung cancer, STDs). He offers a sliding scale of difficulty in his "younger every day suggestions". Whether talking about stress, diet or disease, Roizen offers case examples and subtle and engaging strategies such as describing the role of living beyond your means in ageing or the difference between "four-legged" and "no-leg fats". Readers looking for a quick fix will benefit less than those who follow the recommendations that require focus and commitment. As Baby Boomers age and books about turning back time increase, Roizen's will remain a standout. --Barbara Mackoff, Amazon.com

Book Description William Morrow Paperbacks, 2005. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Why not live at 60 feeling like you did at 35? Thousands of Americans are younger today than they were five years ago. How is that possible? By following the specific recommendations that reverse aging in Dr. Michael Roizen's bestselling book RealAge: Are You As Young As You Can Be?, people who were previously much older than their chronological age have now taken up to twentynine years off their biological ages. Since that first publication, more than 10 million people have taken the RealAge test in one form or another, and thousands of people have thanked Dr. Roizen for helping them make simple changes in their lives -- changes that have made them healthier, younger, and more vibrant. In the last several years, Dr. Roizen and his team have learned much more about the aging process. The RealAge Makeover makes sense of recent critical medical findings -- mportant new research on inflammation in your arteries, stress reduction, chronic disease management, hormone replacement therapy, and other choices you can make to keep aging at a distance. You'll also find the latest on vitamins and other supplements, which are age-reducing, which are aging, and which ones to avoid if you are taking certain medications. Roizen then offers more than seventy ways to reduce or even prevent 80 percent of the diseases that make you feel older. For example, coffee or the right kind of chocolate in moderate amounts can help reduce inflammation, preserving your arteries, joints, and memory. But the wrong choice can lead to needless aging and loss of energy, such as taking too much Vitamin A. And The RealAge Makeover tells you how much (in years) each choice is worth so you can make the choices that are meaningful to you. More potent than any statistic or finding are the personal stories interwoven throughout -- success stories from readers who followed the RealAge program, became biologically younger, and are living happier, healthier lives. With this book, readers have more opportunity than ever to turn back their biological clock to look, feel, and actually be many years younger. Join the RealAge Revolution and give yourself a RealAge Makeover!. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_006081702X
