Why is it that we experience weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses and memory loss as we get older? While these ailments do become more common in our 30s and 40s, they aren't inevitable. In fact, we are perfectly capable of remaining young, slim and vigorous, and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp - if we give them what they need. The problem is that most of us don't do that. We don't realize what our bodies need, and, overwhelmed by the stresses and pressures of our lives, we eat the wrong foods, skimp on sleep and deprive our bodies of the movement they crave. Most insidious of all, many of us lack the personal support and the community that we need to feel fully alive. Instead, we buy into the myth that age means decline. In this book, bestselling author and internationally recognized expert in integrative and functional medicine, Dr Frank Lipman shares the 10 key steps to live your best life. He breaks through the common myths and misconceptions surrounding ageing and dieting, and he zeroes in on what you need to do in order to feel great. His two-week Revitalize Programme and extended Maintenance Programme bring together key information regarding insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance, gut and hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders, medications and supplements, and community support. The book also features: - delicious, nutritious recipes to support you along the way - handy shopping lists and meal plans - simple exercises, meditation practices and restorative yoga sequences - information about powerful anti-ageing and digestive supplements and vitamins ...and more!
