Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules." Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging. Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.… (mer)

I read this book when I was 55 and followed it religiously for three years. I exercised vigorously six days per week.

However, I later decided that six days per week were simply too many, and didn't give my body enough rest time in between. There were some nights when I was extremely tired, and I suspect that was due to the lack of recover time.

Also, although the authors understood the problems of high-carbohydrate meals, I don't think they took this far enough.

So now I exercise four days a week, typically with one five-hour bike ride (60 miles), on strength-training day (Boxflex), and another day of a long walk or some high-intensity intervals. That seems to work better.

In general, the concepts in this book are well-explained and important. The most important being that the only way to communicate with your body, and tell it that it shouldn't break itself down and store fat, is to exercise.

One other note: I gave this to my older sister, and she felt that it "changed her life." She became much more active. However, I think she's reverted to her old ways a bit. ( )

Even if we can't live forever, we can extend our life and certainly the quality of it to be active and vital for the last third. These two authors seem to have the science and the experience to tell us how. Holding back the tide of forces that erode us in our later years is possible, with some knowledge and daily discipline. The underlying premise involves replicating the biological signals that tell our primitive brain: it's spring, we're being product, and it's time to grow. Otherwise, when you sit around, inactive and alone, it triggers the body's decay mode. Winter is here and more winter is coming. The authors' include a very practical plan that anyone can follow, if they make the time. They describe their own execution of it in ways to make exercise social and fun. ( )

A good read and a useful book. I don't know whether these guys are right or not, but it dosen't matter. I am 75 and have recently begun to fall, starting with the stairs in my sister in law's house in Cambridge MA. That cost me a week in Mt Aubutn Hospital in Cambridge and then four weeks at a rehab facility on the east side where the young ladies did a wonderful job in physical and occupational therapy. Despite o whole lot of exercises and a loss of 30 pounds,( food at these places is the pits and the hospital has completely given up) I continue to fall. My doc is Henry Lodge, who co-wrote this book with Chris Crowley, and I think that his advice is pretty good. Crowley talked about how much the doc contributed to the effort yet i see he is the sole author according to this website. He is as full of crap as those revolting Irish nurses at the Cambridge hospital. ( )

Great tips on exercise and health in the last third of life. It wasn't til I was almost done with the book it became obvious that it was for men. But it was very readable with alternating chapters by the two authors. Recommend this for anyone retiring and/or over 60. ( )
