How Young Do You Want to Feel?

Your calendar age is just a number. What really matters is how you look, how you feel and how much energy you bring to your day. Your biological age— your Bio-Age— is what counts. You can't make yourself younger chronologically (be honest now, do you really want to be 15 again?) but you can change your Bio-Age. We all know people who look and perform like someone 10 years older than the age on their birth certificate. We also know others who seem to be at least 10 years younger. What are their secrets? Brad King and Dr. Michael Schmidt shed some light on that question.

The authors of Bio-Age have brought together the most up-to-date research on how the human body works and how it ages— a complex subject that has exploded with new discoveries in recent years. They explain what is actually happening to your body. Eight other experts, invited to contribute their news and views on aging-related topics, will tell you about specific anti-aging strategies. Then the authors take it to the next level with a 10-step plan to help you change your own aging process and promote healthy longevity.

Read the book. Make the lifestyle choices that will keep you on the move and on the ball. Don't let your birth certificate fool you— how young do you want to feel?
