This current book’s topic reminds me of  the Tommy Lee Jones line from the movie Die Hard; “Welcome to the Revolution.”

Harry (Henry S. Lodge, M.D.), an expert in inner prescription and preventive medicinal services. Chris Crowley is Harry’s 70-year-old patient who’s presently stronger than when he was at 40. Together, in alternating parts that are enthusiastic, sometimes frank, and dependably absolutely persuading, they illuminate Harry’s Principles and the science behind them. These seven principles are misleadingly basic:

  1. Exercise six days a week
  2. Do real oxygen consuming activity four days a week
  3. Do real training of strength with weights, two days a week
  4. Spend short of what you make
  5. Stop eating crap
  6. Care
  7. Associate and commit

The science, streamlined and demystified, spans from the atomic science of development to how our minds and bodies developed and reasons they fare so ineffectively in our inactive, all-devour no-starvation society). The result is an outlook change in our perspective of how we age.

Trusting they have a new methodology for enhancing men’s lives, Crowley, a previous litigator, and Cabin, a board-affirmed internist, worked together to compose this “transformative” health project. The authors construct their arrangement with respect to the thought that rather than anticipating many years of pain as the body gradually weakens, it’s conceivable to live as though you were 50, possibly more youthful, for the rest of your life. Yet except for “Harry’s First Principle”— exercise no less than six days a week—there isn’t much that is new or weighty in their plan. Most proposals fall under the “sound judgment” umbrella, however these recommendations may be brand new information to numerous men, who aren’t as familiar with the world of well-being and wellness as most ladies seem to be (they may find the sections dealing with nutrition and science especially instructive).

Turn your biological clock backwards. As much amusing to read as it is enticing – “More youthful One Year from now” draws on the most recent science of maturing to demonstrate how men of 50 years or more can turn out to be practically more youthful consistently for the next five to ten years, and keep on living like fifty-year-olds until very much into their eighties. To appreciate life and be more grounded, more sound, and more ready. To fight off 70% of the typical aging symptoms connected with maturing such as, weakness, sore joints, and detachment and to dispense more than half of all disease and potential injuries. This is the genuine stuff, a program that is intended to work for any individual who chooses to put forth a concentrated effort to “Harry’s Principles.”

Dr. Lodge concentrates on advancements in cell and developmental science. Crowley, his guinea pig, is a firm devotee to Dr. Lodge’s science and great at persuading the reader that, in case you’re a fifty-year-old man, you’d be a bonehead not to begin taking after the principles as quickly as time permits.

Welcome to the next third of your life, prepare for it, and you’ll have a great time.

Chris Crowley handles the book from a more matured man’s point of view that is utilizing the apparatuses to look and feel more youthful and to be in good health. Dr. Lodge examines the reasons we do certain things that will drastically enhance our well-being and generally back off the maturing process and make our latter years more advantageous and more pleasant. There were a few zones of discussion and examination that I discovered exceptionally helpful:

Exercise Now: I am able to always rationalize about not exercising but rather they make an incredible point. Look at exercise activity as an occupation that you need to do 6 days a week. Not 3 days a week and not even 5 days a week. You need to do this no less than 6 days consistently. It’s not generally simple but rather it is an incredible bit of advice.

Stop the maturing procedure – Your body needs to stay as youthful as it can and it has been as of late with fast food, TV, autos, and so forth that individuals don’t do things and don’t go out and exercise or stroll around or simply staying active. The human body has needed to get on with it for hundreds of thousands and a great many more years…it is just the previous 100 years where our body has not needed to work and our bodies loathe that. They need to be active…they need to get worked out yet we frequently repress that need by being languid.

How it influences me today– – It has made me work progressively in the direction of enhancing my own general well-being. I am working out more and I see better and understand more of what was taught in the book. I envision what I would like to look like in 10, 20 and 30 years and what I have to do to achieve that.

Tone of the book– – It at first disturbed me by the way they switched forward and backward between parts of the book, however I ended up anticipating each new perspective (medical and basic man) toward the beginning of every section. It is compelling. You get the science (Dr. Harry Lodge) and you get the basic individual (Chris Crowley) discussing what he is doing to enhance his well-being and his life from that subject discussed. Crowley shows excitement in what he is doing to enhance his life and Dr. Lodge has the capacity to convey the sciences down to a level that even I could get it. I delighted in the book and I consider this to be a book that can be useful to those that are 50 years and above, however can likewise be exceptionally advantageous for those well under 50.

All things considered, I observed this to be an exceptionally instructive and interesting book and I’d prescribe it to any individual who is searching for a book on aging. The sensible key here is not to go into things supposing you’re going to STOP the maturing procedure, rather consider Backing Off aging. Maturing readers might likewise discover ‘Bulletproof Your Shoulder’ interesting as 54% of individuals beyond 60 years old get a torn rotator cuff.

Even though I read the entire book all I have to say is: follow these simple steps and you will see the difference.. “Exercise six days a week
Do real oxygen consuming activity four days a week
Do real training of strength with weights, two days a week
Spend short of what you make
Stop eating crap
Associate and commit”


I have read this book the other week. Very informative and interesting and it has provided me with real insight.

This book was very helpful to me when I turned 50. I was having a hard time with age and how my health was, but I got some motivation and the end results have been nothing short of fantastic!


This seems like it could help me. I think I will order it later today.

I read this book. I really liked it, too. It was well written and really sucked my interest into the way your body is over your lifetime. As long as you take care of it, inside and out, you can really extend your life!

Kelsey Wilson

This looks like it will be a good, informative book to read. I don’t kid myself that I will become younger looking with the right diet. I know there are people who have such expectations. What I am looking for is to feel younger, which I am achieving day by day. Eating right, exercise and supplements are working, but of course I want to learn more.
