Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Here's another candidate for the "Whoa! Who's that old guy in the mirror?" genre. The advice in Shed 10 Years in 10 Weeks covers a wide range of age-related complaints: more fat, less muscle, more wrinkles, less sexual vitality, more illness, less short-term memory, and on and on. The proposed solutions to these problems rely heavily on nutritional supplements, which is a bit dubious, and there aren't any recommendations for strength training in the "Regain 10 Years of Muscle" section, which is even more suspect. (Julian Whitaker seems to be a cardio person.) But aside from those two quibbles, the advice seems useful and practical, especially for those who've worked and played just a little too hard in their first 40 or 50 years. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book purports to assist you, O Baby Boomer, to remove 10 years of aging in only 10 weeks. This book has no schematics to build a time machine, instead it's a guide to vitamin supplements, health issues such as sexuality, diabetes and heart disease, how to preserve your mental accuity and much more. I was surprised to find some interesting nuggets of information that, taken together, form a good blueprint for healthful habits. Some of the habits (quitting smoking) are a given. Others, such as finding supplements like bilberry to ward off eye problems, are not so well-known.
This author is not on the low-carb bandwagon (recommends the more usual lower-fat, whole-grain diet) but this is in keeping with such books as "South Beach Diet."
What's valuable to me are lists of supplements and what degenerative processes they help deter, and a general plan for good health in your middle age and beyond. This is a readable, useful book.

What Whitaker and Colman say is that we have two choices: we can either accept the aging philosophically, or we can intervene and take steps to help our bodies overcome these new challenges. We can actually slow down the processes of aging and reverse some of the damage that has already begun. And we can begin before we reach the age of forty, without a doubt.
I was so impressed with the changes brought about by following the regiments in this book that I bought one each for my parents and my brothers. Definitely an eye-opener and a great way to learn that beauty definitely comes from within (and it's deeper than the skin)!

Format: Paperback
Filled with practical, well researched information this book contains the distilled knowledge of the most recent studies on aging. The book is organized in a way that allows you to go to the areas that concern you most and read that section without having to read all the preceding chapters.
The chapters cover such topics as getting rid of fat, regaining lost muscle, boosting your brain power, getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles, recharging your immune system and others. Julian Whitaker and Carol Colman have created an interesting book that puts information you would normally have to search across many reference articles to find into one easy to read book.

Have been following the recommendations on skin care for 6 months and my face looks better than it did 20 years ago. No longer look pale and old but pink and fresh. Recommended treatment is inexpensive and takes very little time. Book is well worth purchasing.

Dr. Whitaker demonstrates his vast knowledge of the best of the latest when it comes to how to develop better-than-disease free health. As a physician I salute his courage in taking a stand for what is right for the patient rather than being bowed down by the criticism that comes to every physician who takes a stand in the area of drug-free therapies. His therapies work and he knows how to work his therapies. One of the great men of medicine.

Format: Paperback
When a dieter seeks to reclaim youth, health, and vigor, he or she would most likely turn to the newest trend: human growth hormone. Now there is nothing inherently wrong with that as there is a clear place for HGH as a tool for health, but before one goes that route, it might make more sense to go back to the basics of a balanced diet and food supplements. In SHED 10 YEARS IN 10 WEEKS, Dr. Julian Whitaker and Carol Colman urge the health conscious to reappraise their diet so as to eliminate harmful foods and increase beneficial ones. The approach of the authors is bedrock common sense mixed with the knowledge that each brings to the table, he with his years of expertise in diet and nutrition and she with her own contributions to Melatonin and hormone research. What separates these two from other more widely known authors is their ability to take complicated issues related to diet and supplements and make these issues ring with clarity. Whitaker and Colman divide their book into 10 steps or chapters, with each step focusing on one aspect of dietary advice. For example, in step 2, called "Lose A Decade's Worth of Fat," they outline a 10 week program that urges the reader to do all the right things: eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables; establish an optimum intake of carbohydrates, protein, and fat; cut down on red meat, add soy to the diet, recognize that some fats (like Omerga-3 fats) are necessary for cardiovascular health; choose which phytochemicals might help be useful; be aware of the importance of soluble and insoluble fibers. Now all this is what your Granny might have been telling you for years, but Whitaker and Colman manage to punctuate Granny's sage advice with the absolute need to listen to her and to them. The major focus of this book is on diet and supplements.Read more ›
