Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“If Americans lived more like the Okinawans, 80 percent of the nations coronary care units, one-third of the cancer wards, and a lot of the nursing homes would be shut down.” —From The Okinawa Program

The Okinawa Program, authored by a team of internationally renowned experts, is based on the landmark scientifically documented twenty-five-year Okinawa Centenarian Study, a Japanese Ministry of health-sponsored study. This breakthrough book reveals the diet, exercise, and lifestyle practices that make the Okinawans the healthiest and longest-lived population in the world. With an easy-to-follow Four-Week Turnaround Plan, nearly one hundred fast, delicious recipes, and a moderate exercise plan, The Okinawa Program can dramatically increase your chances for a long, healthy life

Synopsis:

Written by the three principal architects of the landmark Okinawa Centenarian Study, "The Okinawa Program" offers a four-week turnaround plan for diet, fitness, and psychosocial well-being. Includes 100 healthy recipes. 25 line drawings. Charts & graphs.
