Book Description
Can exercise prevent gray hair?
Is wine consumption better than drinking beer or hard liquor?
Is testosterone important only for men?
How much fish should you eat each week?
Just because your chronological age is going up, it doesn’t mean aches and pains, weight gain, and lack of energy have to get you down. You can prevent and reverse the symptoms of aging! Combining Dr. John Morley’s research on aging, hormones, and disease management with Dr. Sheri Colberg’s expertise in exercise science and sports nutrition, this comprehensive guide breaks everything down into ten simple steps for maintaining an optimal quality of life. Follow the suggestions in this book, and in a matter of weeks you’ll begin to experience:
* An upsurge in your energy levels
* An enhanced enjoyment of your life and daily activities
* A noticeable increase in the sharpness of your mind
* A stronger sex drive
You can pick and choose among hundreds of antiaging tips to find what’s right for you. You’ll discover the best foods to eat, why alcohol can be beneficial (and how much to drink), what types of exercise are important, which hormones are a waste of your money and which really work, how to keep your mind sharp, and why weight loss may not be advisable at certain ages. In addition, you’ll find all the latest information you need to keep your heart healthy, prevent cancer, strengthen your bones, keep your joints limber, and stay on your feet.
The Science of Staying Young is not just about aging gracefully—it’s about living and feeling your best for the rest of your life.
