Your state of health, how you feel, and how you look are more within your control than you think - even in your forties and fifties (and beyond). This book addresses exercise, fitness, nutrition, wellness, and the mind-body connection. Its purpose is not to promote any particular exercise program or diet plan - although its coverage of exercise, fitness, and nutrition is extensive - but rather to inform, educate, and motivate the reader on the importance of being proactive in one's own health, fitness, and wellness. Even if you are already physically active, this book can assist you in evaluating the effectiveness of your current exercise efforts. Not only does the book cite to other authorities, but it also conveys the author's own journey and his own positive results achieved through exercise, nutrition, and the mind-body connection.

The importance of nutrition is explained and heavily stressed. One comes away with an increased or renewed awareness of the importance of quality nutrition in optimal health, fitness, and wellness. Other apsects of wellness - apart from exercise and nutrition - are also addressed. A foundational background in exercise and fitness concepts is provided. The author shares his own philosophy of exercise and his own health and fitness journey, with particular emphasis on the challenges faced by him in his early fifties and the favorable health and fitness results he obtained at that age by "re-booting" his commitment to health and fitness.

As stated in the book's Introduction: This book is about believing in yourself, maintaining inner strength, and understanding exercise, fitness, nutrition, and wellness. This book is also about getting younger instead of getting older, discovering your inner athlete, and becoming and remaining healthy and fit in both body and mind. This book is for people who have never exercised but would like to start; for people who would like to know more about good nutrition; for people who exercise but have not seen results; for people whose fitness level has declined and who want to re-ignite their fitness quest; for people who choose to be proactive about their own health, fitness and wellness; for people interested in the mind-body connection; and for people who reject negative self-talk and self-limiting stereotypes about life after the age of 50. All ages are welcome.

As I have said in many of my posts, I am a former unhealthy woman who struggled with weight most of my life. I lost weight several years ago and have kept it off. I have a few pounds I would like to take off, but I feel like I look pretty good, and I do workout hard and try to eat right to stay in shape. This book was a pretty easy book to read, and I liked the premise behind it. I look healthier and younger now than when I was unhealthy and obese in my twenties. I believe that as you age, you don't have to give in and just let yourself go. You can keep working towards a healthy body, and that is what I plan to do even as I am getting closer to 40 every day. I think that the author shared a lot of practical advice, but I sometimes found myself rather bored. He told his story more than once, but that's okay. His story is amazing in of itself, and if nothing else, this book should inspire you to make the decision to get healthy. He makes a case for his viewpoints, and even though I don't share them all, I think he is on to something. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
