Overview

Lawrence Slobody, M.D., prescribes a 12-step plan for making the Golden Years happier, healthier—and longer. In easy-to-understand terms, his new book presents a comprehensive approach to the fight against aging. Dr. Slobody, a former president of the New York Medical College and currently a vital 85 years old, has produced what is being referred to as the bible of the anti-aging movement. Science is finally taking this movement seriously, making progress every day in this area of study, and Dr. Slobody has distilled that knowledge into a clear presentation and guide that reveals the why's as well as the how's of proper nutrition and exercise. The book, especially its revolutionary anti-aging diet and menu plans (a 15-day guide for 1200, 1800, and 2400 calorie diets), constitutes a total health plan involving nutrition, supplementation, and exercise of both body and mind.

Lawrence B. Slobody, M.D., is convinced that the human body is built to last for 115 years. His book, The Golden Years: A 12-Step Anti-Aging Plan for a Longer, Healthier, and Happier Life, has been written to make that possible for us all. Dr. Slobody, a former president of the New York Medical College and currently a vital 85 years old, has produced what is being respectfully referred to as the bible of anti-aging at a time when science, as well as the general population, are finally taking the anti-aging movement seriously. Science is making amazing progress every day on this front, and Dr. Slobody has distilled that knowledge into a clear, sensible presentation of the critical steps toward a healthier, happier, more self-aware life.

The Golden Years tells us that, as we approach 50, our body starts to change, a process characterized by our immune system beginning to break down. The agents of destruction are called free radicals and their specialty is the deterioration of body cells and tissues. Our mission as the caretakers of our bodies is to undermine these agents and hence, slow down the aging process. How? By following Dr. Slobody's 12-Step Anti-Aging Plan, we can help our natural protective repair and regenerative systems within our bodies, the so-called anti-free radicals, agents which are not usually as strong and effective as we age. Through proper nutrition, exercise of body and mind, and proper supplementation—as set forth in The Golden Years—we can customize a plan to fit our individual needs. Every day in America, almost 200 people reach 100 years of age, and that number is increasing each year. The Golden Years is a golden opportunity to fulfill our anti-aging potential.
