I have a collection of diet and exercise books, and this is the best ever. I am giving it to all my friends in their sixties and seventies. They are the ones who complain about gaining weight without eating more, and most of them already exercise. I am now running around Baltimore looking for practical sources of l0-20 grams of protein to have within 30 minutes of a rigorous exercise session! I also love the fact that "the ability to adapt is a sign of intelligence." The book is easy to read, and the pictures make it easy to try the exercises. Who would think of dong some with a chair and an iron in a hotel room?

The gut that comes with age doesn't have to stay there. "Fit at Fifty and Beyond: A Balanced Exercise and Nutrition Program" is a health guide for those who have reached age fifty (or close to it) and don't want to miss a step in maintaining their health. Good physical fitness is very much possible past fifty, but age is a cruel mistress and some things must be approached differently. "Fit at Fifty and Beyond" is well worth the investment for those who have passed the half century mark.

I am impressed with this book. It does a good job explaining how our bodies function after age 50. There are lots of helpful hints on how to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is a book for the ordinary person, not just for movie stars.

Format: Paperback
My Early Reviewers copy of Fit at 50 and Beyond, extruding a dozen colorful markers, creased along its thin spine on the front cover, stained with juice on the lower edge and stocked with gritty black and white photographs of people over 50 exercising, is not a pretty book. It is the kind of book that one lives with, not the kind that sits unread on the coffee table.

The text, like the rest of the book, is plain, straightforward and lacking any kind of gimmicks. I love it. At just 168 pages, Fit at 50 and Beyond is an exercise book on a diet - all facts and no puffery. This is a book for people who think Ms. Senior America is someone special, and she does in fact appear in some of the pictures.

I have fifteen books tagged "diet" in my library, but this one is unique. Dr. Gloth is not selling anything - not a sports drink, or special exercise equipment (one picture is of a man lifting a chair - "chair curls" - hah!). He is not pushing expensive pre-packaged diet food or memberships in anything. I felt throughout the book as if I could trust him to give me the unvarnished scientific facts of diet and exercise. For example, some books I have claim that all calories are equal. Now I understand that is an over-simplified approach. Dr. Goth explains how carbohydrates, fats and protein are metabolized differently in the body, and how that affects weight gain or loss.

He also gives tips such as the best time of day to exercise and why, and what to eat after exercising and why. I was born asking "Why?" and I like it that Dr. Gloth's explanations are clear and concise.

Dr. Gloth, like a good coach, includes all the effective diet and exercise pointers I am aware of, some that I didn't know before, and doesn't waste my time with silly alternatives.

Fit at 50 and Beyond is a great book to help you take back your health and restart you life.

I hate to say it but I am rapidly approaching 50, and I'm very interested in getting back a little more of that energy that I seem to be loosing each year. This book was just what I was looking for! It is a quick and easy read, not diving too deeply into the horrors of growing old, but simply supplies the knowledge you need to help reduce the ravages of time. It informs the reader with basic facts on your aging body, the food that you should be eating and the exercises that you should be doing. The book is full of useful suggestions and has examples of exercises as well as recipes to help with nutrition. The book is not overly long, so it will not scare the reader away but has a surprising amount of information for it small size. The book is well thought out and gives plenty of encouragement, now that I've read it the ball is in my court. Hopefully my willpower will be up to the task!

I was disappointed in this book. The authors briefly touched on several tips for getting in shape but brought nothing new to the table. The only redeeming aspect was a few appealing healthy recipes.
