This book makes you realize that the road to a healthy, longer life is that you have to exercise every day. Unlike our ancestors who physically worked for a living we get very little exercise. Brings up a lot of good points and is easy to read and understand.
About This Item
This is the book that can show us how to turn back our biological clocks—how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry's Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work—and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation.
Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

Younger Next Year for ...
Younger Next Year for Women is written by a doctor (Henry Lodge) and his patient (Chris Crowley). I found this book to be an easy read, very informative and I recommend it to anyone who is worried that the second half of our lives might not be as fun and rich as the first half (and guys - there is a version for men if you want to avoid topics like hot flashes). From this book I learned that the gradual decay that our society associates with aging - osteoporosis, stiffness, arthritis, dementia, etc - is NOT inevitable. As hunter/gatherers, our bodies were not designed to sit behind a desk and eat chocolate chip cookies. We need to exercise - ok here is the hard part - at least 6 times a week. Now this isn't new information, but Dr. Lodge presented enough explanation on how our bodies work, and the consequences of not exercising, to convince me to change my habits. I have been recommending this book to my family and friends - don't delay or decay! Read this book!

Read/Listened for Fun (Audible/Kindle) Overall Rating: DNF First Thoughts: Younger Next Year for Women had a good message (mostly) but it was buried under joining a gym, skiing stories, swimming stories, and insulting terms that made me shut down the book! Here is the parts that I really liked: 1: Exercise is key to adding years to your life. 2: Eating right makes your body perform better. 3: Knowing your heart rate during exercise will let you know how much you are pushing yourself. 4: Strength training for women is key to battling some women specific issues that come up post menopause. Nothing earth-shattering but all good things to keep in mind. The rest (and I made 6 hours) was all chatter that was off-putting and buried the information. Overall I was not impressed.
