Overview

The aging process is not totally inevitable, nor is it always irreversible. It is the result of specific chemical assaults on the body, much of which can be significantly counteracted by the foods you choose to eat. While we have yet to find the fountain of youth, the next best thing is an enlightened diet. Engaging but straightforward, Eat Right, Live Longer is a practical guide that focuses on specific ways to enhance and maintain the body's health and youthfulness. Dr. Barnard's nutrition strategies begin by defending the cells of your body against the free radicals and chemical assaults that are fundamental to the aging process. Next, you will learn how foods can balance your natural hormones to help you look and feel younger. In an easy, step-by-step approach, Dr. Barnard shows how you can rejuvenate your bones, your blood vessels, your ability to burn calories, and even your skin and hair. Eat Right, Live Longer also sets the record straight on fat and sugar intake, the effects of various vitamins and minerals, caffeine and alcohol, as well as hormone therapy, free-radicals, cancer prevention, and other important subjects. A menu-planning section provides the essential methods to incorporate Dr. Barnard's prescriptions into your daily diet, along with cooking techniques, shopping tips, pantry staples, and dozens of delicious, no-guilt recipes that ensure a smooth transition to eating smart and living longer.

The science of anti-aging foods is advancing faster than any other aspect of nutrition. This practical guide focuses on the how-to of anti-aging, nutrition, and lifestyle, progressing step-by-step from basic free radical theory to applications for healthy skin and hair, reducing hormone shifts, slimming down, and other vital areas of health.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Barnard, author of Food for Life and president of the Physicians' Committee for Responsible Medicine, has developed an eight-step program to age-proof the body from the inside out. The first step is to use nutrients from fruits, legumes and vegetables to shield the body against free radicals, ``aggressive molecules [that] are the equivalent of factory exhaust'' and that damage the body's cells and contribute to the decay associated with aging. Other steps call for strengthening the body's defenses against environmental pollutants with natural enzymes; controlling sex hormones through diet and weight control; protecting veins and arteries by eating foods that reduce vein pressures and artery closures; maintaining strong bones and joints and taking off weight. His program requires a restrictive, low-fat (10% of daily calorie intake), vegetarian diet and a regular walking regime. Barnard recommends a ``Zero-a-Day'' program of meats and dairy products for maximum health benefits. Despite the program's daunting aspects, Barnard's 14-day menu plan and selection of dairy-and meat-free recipes, developed by Jennifer Raymond, deliver an intriguing challenge. What diet can't be followed for two weeks? (Sept.)
Library Journal
