"I have lost 50 pounds over the last nine months by eating less, moving more, and changing the way I think. I am 62 and look better and feel better and have more energy than in the last 15 years."—Ron T.

" I read the wisdom put forth by Chris and Harry . . . [and] my next physical blew my doctor away. I am 74 and in better shape than when I was 50."—Jack S.

"Not a week goes by that I do not utter a silent prayer of thanks that Younger Next Year came into my life. You guys are saving the world one body at a time."—T. G.

Announcing the paperback edition of Younger Next Year, the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller, co-written by one of the country’s most prominent internists, Dr. Henry "Harry" Lodge, and his star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley. These are the books that show us how to turn back our biological clocks—how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry's Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work—and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation.

Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

Synopsis:

Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules."

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.

Younger Is as Younger Does

Of all the anti-aging books I've seen, this is one of most laid back and entertaining. It's written by two guys. Harry, the doctor, covers the science aspects of aging, while the other guy, Chris, talks about applying the info.

The book is centered around "Harry's Rules." These are seven rules for the reader to follow. They include such things as "Quit eating [...]" or "Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life." While they might seem to be basic pieces of information, they are sound advice and have some science behind them.

All-in-all, I found this to be a very informative and amusing book and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a book on aging. The realistic key here is not to go into things thinking you're going to STOP the aging process, rather think of SLOWING DOWN the aging process. Aging readers may also find "Treat Your Own Rotator Cuff" helpful as 54% of people over the age of 60 get a torn rotator cuff.

Interesting look at connection of exercise and body chemistry (3.6*s)

This book is yet another look at aging, in this time of boomers reaching retirement, that is both breezy, on the part of retired lawyer Crowley, and watered-down scientific, on the part on gerontologist Lodge. Their concern is that the typical deterioration of a person’s physical plant (body) and the onset of common afflictions, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and complications from falls, are entirely unnecessary and actually abnormal. They point out that the body is in a constant state of decay and growth, and that it is entirely possible to nurture the growth cycle in such a way that a person’s body can resist decline and be healthy and strong well into one’s eighties.

Now comes the disheartening part for those hooked on medicines for well-being. Their prescription for life transformation is vigorous exercise six days a week, and preferably seven. Aerobic exercise at either low or high intensity levels must be done for a minimum of one hour at least four days a week and some form of weightlifting at least twice a week. This is not optional. Vigorous exercise is completely in accordance with our body’s chemistry developed over millions of years which enabled man to survive by covering many miles everyday hunting and gathering food. Our sedentary lifestyles are completely out of balance with our internal chemistry.

For the more scientifically inclined, Lodge outlines a simplified version of our body’s cycle of decay and growth. He introduces two essential chemicals, cytokine-6 (C-6) and cytokine-10 (C-10). C-6 is in control of decay and inflammation, but also stimulates the production of C-10, the chemical for repair and growth. Unfortunately, the steady, low-level production of C-6 causes decay but is insufficient to stimulate C-10. C-10, and thereby cellular repair, is produced only when exercise produces a threshold level of C-6. Inactivity, poor nutrition, and high levels of stress brought on by any number of social situations all permit C-6 to predominate in our bodies.

The book has several practical suggestions for exercise and for nutrition, with overeating and consuming too much sugar being especially harmful. The authors continually emphasize the positive benefits of being socially connected and having absorbing work and/or hobbies, most of which is well known. The main contribution of the book is the emphasis on exercise being necessary given our physical/chemical structure.

The book is organized in a ping-pong fashion with first Crowley, then Lodge, weighing in. It is somewhat repetitious and there is a pervasive optimism, verging on the excessive. Sometimes personal testimony can add, but author Crowley’s fixation on his skiing prowess at age seventy is a bit much. Furthermore, his multiple expensive vacations and the purchasing of expensive custom bicycles, rowing equipment, and the like gets tiresome. His recommendation of perhaps the most expensive bicycle touring company in existence is not helpful.

The book is by no means a how-to book on exercise, nor particularly expansive on nutrition. The body chemistry angle is of most interest. Unless that would be interesting, buy yourself a decent pair of walking shoes, quit overeating, and start exercising. Save the money on the book.
