Ten Years Younger: The Amazing Ten Week Plan to Look Better, Feel Better, and Turn Back the Clock
How would you like to look and feel ten years younger in just ten weeks time?
Studies show that Americans on the whole are aging faster than ever with conditions like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease occurring increasingly earlier on in life—along with everyday age indicators like wrinkles and love handles. Now, Dr. Steven Masley, former medical director of the prestigious Pritikin Longevity Center® and a pioneer in anti-aging medicine, delivers a breakthrough plan to turn back the clock, inside and out—no matter what your age!
Originally featured on the Discovery Channel, the Ten Years Younger Program is designed to combat the roots of accelerated aging. Poor nutrition, toxins in the environment, stress, and exposure to free radicals all make us old before our time, along with a little-known aging culprit: low- and no-carb diets. As Dr. Masley shows, low-carb diets deprive the body of anti-aging phytonutrients and fiber, accelerate osteoporosis, and damage brain cells. So the first secret of turning back time is: Eat your carbs!
Each week, Ten Years Younger guides you through an age-busting combination of cutting-edge nutritional choices, relaxation techniques to reduce the aging effects of stress, and simple workouts designed to build lean muscle and trim and tone your body from head to toe. By following the plan for just ten weeks, you will: Achieve significant weight loss—up to twenty-five pounds Boost your energy levels Rejuvenate your skin Enhance brain function Prevent and reverse the onset of diabetes and heart disease Lower your cholesterol and blood pressure Improve sexual vitality
With tools to help you assess how your body is really aging, weekly shopping lists and meal plans, and over 100 delicious recipes packed with antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients, Ten Years Younger is the healthiest, safest, and fastest way to take off the years—no surgery required!
Learn how easy it is to be younger
By Steve Burns - October 11, 2006
This book was an enjoyable read covering a lot of the same ground as some of the new diet books and anti-aging books, like RealAge and the Anti-Aging Zone. But it is useful and easy to implement.
Here are the diet guidelines:
1. Eat at least 30 grams of fiber a day.
2. Consume 4 to 5 cups of colorful fruits and vegetables a day.
3. Reduce saturated fat and shun trans fats.
4. Choose healthy omega-3 fats.
5. Substitute whole grains for highly processed, refined foods.
6. Seek out foods rich in calcium and magnesium.
7. Hydrate. (Eight cups of water a day).
8. Save room for a healthy dessert.
9. Watch your portion sizes.
10. Select healthy snacks. (Fruits, vegetables, and nuts).
He also has a plan for fitness, relaxation, detoxification, and what supplements to take. I have read 50 other books on diet and nutrition and completely agree with this authors... read more
Sound Advice, But Nothing New
By Chan Joon Yee "Dr Chan" - June 22, 2008
In the intro, Dr Masley promises that his Ten Years Younger Program can help the patient reverse the aging process and be ten years younger in just 10 weeks. There are 3 pillars to this program. No surprises, they are 1. Diet, 2. Exercise and 3. Relaxation.
Dr Masley goes on to explain what causes accelerated aging. No surprises here either. They are oxidative stress, diet, metablic syndrome, physical inactivity, chronic stress, toxins, inflammation. Nothing new here. For people who have been reading health books, this chapter will sound like a boring repetition. However, I think Dr Mansely does a good job of debunking low carb diets.
Then, there is a chapter on "sweet 16" vitality foods. No surprises in the list - except for one - chocolates! Like many health gurus, Dr Mansley advocates supplements that apart from the usual things, include selenium, ginger and garlic.
Chapter 6 is all about fitness. I totally agree with his advice on strength training... read more
