THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!"

Follow this plan - it works!" says Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor and Vice-chair of Surgery, NYP-Columbia Medical Center, and Host of The Dr. Oz Show.

Look younger, stay slimmer, feel sexier...no matter what your age! This revolutionary plan to reverse the signs of aging kicks off with a 7-day Jumpstart plan offering all the tools you need to start your total rejuvenation. Then you'll follow the 7-week, science-based program with a holistic approach to looking and feeling younger. Its 7 age erasers cover every base with special regimens for skin care, makeup, hair care, nutrition and diet, fitness, brain fitness, and emotional health. With this program you can "de-age" your skin, use makeup and hair smarts to get a youthful look, rehab your diet and exercise habits to lower your risk of age-related diseases and to lose weight, learn to sharpen your mind, and nurture your emotional health. You'll be surprised at how much you can turn back the clock on your own-without stepping near a plastic surgeon's office, or spending a fortune on expensive beauty products.

The scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute rigorously tested more than 400 beauty products and conducted more than 5,000 lab tests over the course of two years to find the anti-aging products that really work. Then ten test panelists went on the plan. The life-transforming results? One woman lost 12 pounds, another lost an amazing 10 inches from around her waist, and a third restored the glow and smoothness of her skin-improvements that were confirmed by scientific testing. Yet another tester emerged looking more glamorous than she'd looked since she first had kids. As one of the testers said, "There are a lot of diet and exercise programs out there on the market. And there are a lot of beauty tips you can get, but '7 Years Younger' has taken all of those things and put them into a one stop shopping experience for your overall beauty and health and mindset." "

What's great about the program," says Good Housekeeping editor in chief Rosemary Ellis, "is that you can treat it like a tool kit. You can pick and choose which elements of the program you want to focus on."

Library Journal
This seven-week anti-aging plan, developed by three directors of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute and two writers at Good Housekeeping magazine, consists of seven age erasers that will help readers overhaul their skin, makeup, and exercise routines, among other things. There is also a seven-day jump-start plan, with recipes (including a section of vegetarian-friendly dishes) and tips on how to continue the program beyond the initial seven weeks. The inclusion of the profiles of ten successful participants helps readers see the real-life benefits of the program. Readers can also take advantage of a very active Facebook page that features additional information based on the principles in the book, which is valuable for those who want further interaction and inspiration or for anyone who has questions that are not addressed in the book.

Verdict With easy-to-understand and -follow guidelines, an endorsement from Dr. Oz, and the knowledge of the staff of Good Housekeeping, this title should be a hit with anyone seeking to turn the clock back a few years or readers who want to look a little fresher and feel better about themselves.—Amber McKee, Cumberland Univ.

7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Anti-Aging Plan 3.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 50 reviews.

With the New Year just around the corner, this is a time when many people reflect on the past year, resolve to make changes and incorporate a more healthy lifestyle. 7 Years Younger offers the tools and advice needed to begin achieving those goals quickly. Written by the Editors of Good Housekeeping and endorsed by Dr. Oz, this is a science-based program with a holistic approach to looking and feeling younger. The book is divided into three sections. The first part is a 7-Day Jumpstart Plan followed by the 7-Week Plan and finally a selection of light and delicious recipes. Recommended products were tested by the Good Housekeeping Research Institute. The 7-Day Jumpstart Plan includes things you can do immediately to look and feel better. For example, revitalizing your skin with some simple makeup tips, getting the vibrant shine and gloss back into your hair, adding some quick fitness routines, eliminating stress and even exercises for your brain. These provide instant gratification and will keep you motivated for the more involved second part, the 7-Week Plan, which involves a commitment to consistency to build new routines and a healthy lifestyle. The book is easy to read and written in a magazine style with lots of charts, tips and Q & A’s in sidebars and inserted into the text. A formal plan doesn’t work for everyone, and it’s not necessary to follow it in detail to make a difference in your life. There are lots of handy tops and tricks that can be easily added to your current daily routine. There is loads of information, but not overwhelming so, and if you need to find something quickly, there is an index at the back and a list of recipes including nutritional analysis. Some of the advice contained in the book are things you may have heard before and some is just common sense. Like get enough sleep, add fruits and veggies to your diet, add a little exercise each day. And there were a lot of things I didn’t know, especially about skin care and makeup, from moisturizers to prescription retinoids. The section on brain fitness and memory was very interesting, and the older I get the more tips I can use. This is not just a ‘beauty plan’ but a map to a lifestyle change encompassing multiple areas including health and nutrition. Even if you’re not following the formal 7-Week Plan, this book is a handy reference tool. It’s already found a prominent place on my bookshelf.

Dr. Oz was right when he said "follow this plan, it really works". I just completed the book and really appreciate the fact based beauty advice with products that cost between $10 and $25, versus $100 to $150. The book provides an amazing amount of very practical information that I can actually use and still live my life as a normal person. I am eager to start getting all the compliments about looking 7 years younger!

This book has allowed me to change my life by giving me, the power to eat healthier, the ability to exercise more diligently, and provide my skin with a youthful glow! 7 Years Younger is a book I can reference any time if I need beauty, health, and exercise advice. Not to mention, the book is chock-full of healthy and yummy recipes (I suggest everyone try the chicken in lettuce cups)! The bonus of this book, versus other books, is that it is a beauty and health book all in one, and all the information has been tested and backed by concrete scientific evidence.

I received this book several weeks ago and began using some of the recommendations right away. There are many great ideas and tips that really work. One of my favorites is taking a pine bark supplement for younger looking skin. Experts say you won't see the full effect for about 3 months but I can tell a difference already. The book names the best products for skin care, I have to agree with their selections...my skin looks brighter and firmer, fine wrinkles are fading. I'm so pleased with the results. Here’s just a sampling of the many surprising (and usable) stop-the-clock strategies for beauty, diet, fitness and health included: -Take a few minutes each day to mentally savor the things you’re thankful for, and you’ll sleep better and longer each night. - Choose a hydrating or satin-finish liquid foundation, as hormone levels dip and your skin gets drier. - Shampoo less frequently to avoid hair dye color-fade. Refresh on your off days by spraying on a dry shampoo at the roots to soak up oil and restore volume. There are many more recommendations techniques that are proven to help you look 7 years younger! I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

There's a reason Dr. Oz recommended this book!  I bought it and am so happy about the recommendations for specific beauty products - researched by Good Housekeeping Institute's good work - as well as the "real life" tips and advice.  I am looking forward to looking 7 years younger in 7 weeks!!

Superb book!  I just started reading this and already I give it 5 stars!  If you want to learn how to feel and look younger this book is for you.  I saw this book on Doctor Oz and he loved it, and I respect his opinion so I gave it a try, boy am I glad I did!

I think most of the info were things i already knew. Also it would have been helpful if they had given examples of products we could use that recd the GH seal . Not helpful if u got only the science behind the product but didnt know what product had it.

I am really excited about sharing this book with you and I think it's the perfect time for a little change in our lives for this new year! Who doesn't want to look and feel their best? I know I do! This book starts out with a pledge for you to take and is then divided into 11 chapters. The first 7 chapters focus on the 7 age erasers. They give a wealth of information and tips for your skin, makeup, hair, diet, fitness, brain, and reducing stress. The next few chapters include a jumpstart plan, the 7-week program, and recipes. It can seem a tad bit overwhelming so it's great to have it all broken down into categories. I have read through this book and can't wait to jump into the plan. This book recommends products that the team have tested and concluded to be the best products out there. Even if you don't follow the plan exactly you can pick and choose things that you want to implement and there are so many tips you can take away from this book for a healthier, more beautiful YOU! Who's with me?!

I liked the book but was hoping for more information really. Good name brands to get for make up and facial care and possibly more recipes for the foods to help you diet. Otherwise was very helpful.
