In this for-men-only book (because "It has become politically incorrect for men to write books for women"), Dr. Bob Arnot--of NBC News medical correspondent fame--will convince even the most committed sloth that a 25-year-old body can be only months away. According to Arnot, revolutions in fitness technology, nutrition, and sports medicine now make it possible for a middle-ager to bench press the years back to a biological age of 25 or so--in as little as six months. Arnot calls on an impressive array of experts and scientific findings to bolster his prescription: an eat-as-much-as-you-want diet of low-fat, whole-grain foods--and play!
Arnot offers advice on sports as play for adults (alpine skiing, aerobic tennis, power blading, mountain biking, and snow blading--also known as cross-country skiing), including the challenges of new skills, getting the right coach, smart training, and fast recoveries. Nutrition plays a big part in the Arnot regimen, and he offers up information on nutritional snacks and sports food, multicultural cuisine ideas, as well as recipes and dietary supplements.
"If there is a fountain of youth, it is the heavy metal in your local gym," Arnot says, because the real fitness pitfall for the not-20-anymore man is muscle loss. From deltoids to dumbbells and pecs to pull-ups, Arnot runs down gym musts and hows in an illustrated weight-training program. Add Arnot's visualization techniques and aphorisms to the mix ("Conventional Wisdom: Go with the flow. New Paradigm: Aging is a cultural trap that programs men to abuse, misuse, and disuse their bodies"), and men past the "golden age" of their 20s may well find that the goal of getting fit, staying fit, and rewinding the biological clock is truly within reach. --Stefanie Durbin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have lost 55 pounds; the bottom number on my blood pressure went down from 94 to 60; my resting pulse has moved from 88 to 62. I have a new lifestyle. I am not hungry and I have learned to eat good food. I'm on track to earn my third belt in karate soon.
solution. In fact, the first two months were pretty tough, but after that everything just started to fall in place, including the compliments from my wife and co-workers. So go ahead, spend two months on the rest of your life, you won't be sorry.
The book has a great deal of nuts and bolts information on nutrition and different exersices. From what wheel and bearing types/sizes are the fastest for your blades, to recomendations of grams of protein per day required for different needs.
If your in an office all day, you need to get out work to build up your bodies furnace again. New pounds of lean muscle mass will burn more calories. Working out is a great stress reliever and increases mental wellbeing.
Bob, next time I am in Harlem maybe I can show you how to really skate. Excellent book!!
I recommend this book to everyone who has fought their waistlines for years and are looking for a long-term solution!
The book starts out with the game plan. Dr. Bob discusses turning back your biological clock. He points out that if you are in seriously good shape, you won't budge your clock that much. However, those who don't practice optimum nutrition, are sedentary, who are aerobically fit but have never built muscle, and those who are muscularly fit but aerobically unfit will recognize the greatest changes by following his advice. He briefly discusses the vision of re-created youth and how you need to be an athlete. This does not mean you must compete, but rather enjoy the sports-improvement technology and enjoy athletics and activities that are right for you.
Next comes a longer section on eating young. The eight chapters in this section discuss concepts such as feedforward eating, controlling your blood sugar, protein consumption, eating all you want, multicultural eating, grazing, watching what you eat by reading labels and knowing what you are putting into your body, sports foods. The book is older, so the sports foods he discusses were available in the 90s when I first read the book, but now there are many, many choices.Read more ›
