Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Elizabeth Somer is a registered dietitian and the author of several books, including 10 Habits That Mess Up a Woman's Diet. She is the editor of the Nutrition Alert newsletter, a contributing editor to Shape, and a nutrition advisor for Prevention. She appears frequently on NBC's “Today” and other national television shows.


More About the Author

My "thing" is that I keep up with the current nutrition research. I've been reading 100s of research studies for years, then packaging that information into news-you-can-use for magazines, books, national and local television and radio, presentations to the general public, and continuing education seminars for health professionals. I specialize in understandable and practical information on how to eat and supplement and why to prevent disease and premature aging, promote health, and attain and maintain a healthy weight. For the past two decades, my aim has been to be the source of nutrition information that people can really trust to be accurate, up-to-date, and sound. I passionately love the science of nutrition, as well as cooking and preparing healthy meals, and believe with all my heart that if people just nourished their bodies with high-quality fuel, they would be rewarded a hundred-fold with health, energy, vitality, longevity, clear thinking, a fit figure, and improved moods.

This book answers the following questions and more:

Why is fish a necessary food in the antiaging diet?

Format: Paperback
As a 40-something, I wished I had this book when I was 1/2 my age! Now I know that "age-proofing" is more than avoiding wrinkles! It's about keeping our independence as we age, protecting our memory, being happy and having a good attitude toward life, lowering our risk for many diseases, fueling our bodies with real food, making simple and do-able changes that make a BIG difference, and adding years onto our life. I learned so much from this book and want to read all her others! Thanks for a useful guide! VickyandJencom

Great Book - mostly discusses the benefits of diet and exercise.... although I found it well-written and interesting. Makes a great gift for someone hitting a big birthday :)
