Publisher Comments:

The choice is yours: You can add forty or more vigorous, fulfilling years to your life. It sounds like science fiction, but in fact its cutting-edge science grounded in exciting new research. In The Metabolic Plan, internationally renowned biochemist Stephen Cherniske reveals the medical breakthroughs that enable all of us to extend our lives—and the quality of our lives—starting today.

Far from giving out due to inevitable wear and tear, the human body is naturally endowed with astonishing powers of renewal, self-repair, and regeneration. The secret to unlocking these powers lies not in genetic tinkering or a high-tech fix but in “tricking” your body into adopting the metabolism of a twenty-year-old. The Metabolic Plan offers a comprehensive diet and exercise regimen specifically tailored to boost antioxidant levels, combat disease, increase muscle, reduce fat, and enhance memory and vision. Cherniske shares the age-defying properties of such cutting-edge supplements as 7-Keto and debunks myths about acid/alkaline foods. Here too are detailed metabolic plans geared to the different needs of men and women and to every decade of our lives—so well know exactly what to focus on when.

Longer life, more energy, improved health, a pervasive sense of well-being: Its all within our grasp. At once revolutionary and eminently practical, this is the book that finally solves the puzzle of aging.

The most exciting fitness-type book I've seen. His writing style is articulate, comprehensive, and convincing. Besides his research into the function of DHEA he covers the range of healthy behaviors in cutting-edge advice. Stephen Cherniske walks his talk; photos in 1988 and 1996 show a striking improvement in his own physical appearance. He says the status of our metabolic health is more significant than chronological age. Very encouraging.
