As 74-year-old physician Life sees it, there are two options when it comes to aging: “You can choose to grow old and weak, or you can choose to do something about it.” In this follow-up to his popular book, The Life Plan (2012), Life outlines a strategy to pump up metabolism, regain energy, ward off disease, and even quash aging. His plan emphasizes a detailed diet, dedicated exercise program, and some controversial hormone replacement therapy. Five small, low-calorie meals per day with a specific ratio of fat, protein, and carbohydrates are recommended. Sample recipes are provided. Exercise entails resistance training (weight lifting), aerobic (cardio) workouts, and flexibility drills. Many photographs of the muscular MD performing these exercises are included. Life is fond of supplements and nutraceuticals. He decrees that testosterone and human growth hormone treatments are appropriate and safe for many middle-aged and elderly men. He suggests dehydroepiandrosterone and melatonin, too. His plan seems to be working wonders for him, but mainstream medical opinion does not share Life’s exuberance for a helping of hormones. --Tony Miksanek
