Overview

Now in paperback, the latest book in the New York Times bestselling, one-million-copy-plus Younger Next Year franchise. The book that tells every reader how to lose weight, discover new vitality, and get in the best shape of your life. The book with the no-nonsense, no-BS, no-shortcuts approach. The book that shows that there’s a revolution in aging going on. The book that is the how-to of that revolution.

Chris Crowley, the memorable patient and coauthor of Younger Next Year, partners with Jen Sacheck, a nutritionist and fitness expert from Tufts University, and in lively, alternating chapters they spell out a weight-loss plan that will have readers losing up to 25 pounds in the first six months—and, much more significantly, keeping it off next year, and the year after, and so on, for life. The message is straightforward and based on the most up-to-date nutritional science: resist the added-fat, added-sugar concoctions created by the food industry; skip the supplements; pile on fruits and vegetables to your heart’s content, but it’s OK to eat lean meats, too; and don’t drink your calories. And exercise! With its simple, fully illustrated program of 25 “sacred exercises,” here is everything the reader needs to build muscle, protect joints, add mobility, and put off 70% of the normal problems associated with aging and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury.

“Clear, concise, well-balanced nutritious diet plan. Realistic exercise . . . [and] the combo of the authors—nutrition scientist and witty writer—makes this an easy-to-read volume with loads of timely, science-based information.”
—Madelyn Fernstrom, Diet and Nutrition Editor, TODAY and NBCNews.com 

“Chock-full of easy recipes, meal plans, and exercise diagrams.”

Thinner This Year: A Younger Next Year Book 4.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 11 reviews.

As a healthcare professional, I found this book to be "factually" informative!!! I did not feel that someone was trying to "sell" a product to me! It has energized me to start making the choices that matter to obtain or maintain good health and avoid or prolong those "hazards" that often come as we age!! I finished this book about a month ago. I am much more aware of what I put into my mouth---yes, I put it there--no one forces me! And, I have missed only one day of exercise in the past 28 days. (Walking in 18 degree windy weather can actually be very invigorating) Yes, I have to "force" myself to do it, but I am always glad afterwards! To say I feel better is an understatement! I am 65 years old, so if I can do this, I am sure most others can also!!! Let's face it---whether we choose to act on improving our quality if life or not, is entirely up to us---no one else!! Thanks for the book!!!

Don't be fooled: this is not a diet book! This is a book that gets it right: there are no shortcuts to good health: exercise - every day if at all possible - combined with good, nutritious food, will keep the pounds coming off and help you get fitter by the day. The way the book is laid out: chapters that alternate between Jen Sacheck's expertise (she is a professor at the Friedman School, Tufts University) in the field of nutrition, exercise and the body's mechanisms to take in food (or store unused calories, resulting in-fat induced inflammation) followed by Chris Crowley's - often hilarious - follow up putting her recommendations into action - at 78 years of age - is reader friendly. The book also includes very worthwhile exercises and nutritional recipes. Thinner this Year is a MUST for any person who is serious about getting off the couch, turning one's back on diets that don't work, and getting fitter, thinner and healthier. For that matter, this is an excellent book for athletes as well who wish to achieve optimal fitness.

I was thinking of buying a textbook about fitness and nutrition, but then I read Younger Next Year. I loved it so much, I bought Thinner This Year. It has a lot of great information about fueling your body to keep it working properly. Don't need the textbook any more!

A great follow up from YOUNGER NEXT YEAR. continues on the same path, the THIRD ACT. Chris is as a motivator  and guinea pig from Harry to Jen. Jen has insight on the nutrition and exercise, and has great writing ability. This edition  charts of all foods, 15 days of what to eat, warm exercises among others. Highly recommend reading!!
