Younger Next Year For Women: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy - Until You're 80 and Beyond

by Chris Crowley, Henry S. Lodge
Foreword by Gail Sheehy

Workman Publishing Co | October 10, 2007 | Trade Paperback

Younger Next Year For Women: Live Strong, Fit, and Sexy - Until You're 80 and Beyond is rated 5 out of 5 by 4.
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,Younger Next Year for Womenis a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. This is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. Using the same inspired structure of alternating voices, Chris and Harry have recast material specifically for women, who already live longer and take better care of themselves than men. New material covers menopause and post-menopause, as well as cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and more.

This is the book that can 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this for a milestone birthday gift - give it just because This book adds humour and science to much of what we already know in a way that makes it so compelling that I will be shocked if you don't put on your runners and run to the store to buy copies for your friends that you plan to grow old with. A must read for women who care about their health and the quality of their lives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential reading This is a must-read for all women reaching menopause. Engaging, well documented and easy to read, this book is a wake-up call to all women to take care of their selves and their bodies. While I am a dedicated runner, this book provided me with the incentive to do more - six days a week - and to consider exercise and community involvement as my life work, not as a sidebar to an already busy life. I bought the original version for my husband, and he is totally on board as well. It is a project that is already showing results: I am leaner and stronger than I have ever been. Do yourself a favour, and get a copy. You'll be happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Give this book to Everyone you Love I always knew that I should exercise but now I understand why its just not optional. Its part of my life job. Its clearly written and is full of great saying and examples. My favourite quote is " you have to grow old but you don't have to rot". It will change the way that you think about exercising and the physiology of your metabolism. Truly its the fountain of youth without fancy potions or magice diets. Everyone over forty needs to read this book sooner rather than later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Young at heart This is a good addition to the authors' previous book. It isn't the usual blah, blah, blah, but scientific information which amount to common sense. I am grateful to the authors for keeping me and my wife young at heart. I was happy to buy for my wife this book as "her own" copy, after we both extensively studied the original "Younger Next Year". Another great book that I highly recommend is "Can We Live 150 Years". In fact these two titles should be sold in one package as they complement each other.

About the Book

The bestselling "Younger Next Year," which deals with men and aging, is now available in an edition aimed at the female population. Covering menopause, cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and many other topics, this work adapts the authors simple, lifesaving rules to contemporary womens lifestyles.

Read from the Book

Chapter One: The Next Fourty Years Okay, you''re a terrific woman, maybe in your late forties, maybe your early sixties, and your life has gone pretty well. You have good energy, decent gifts, and right now you seem to be heading into a particularly nice stretch. The kids are getting big or are gone. Old Fred, if he''s around, is taking care of himself, and the relationship is taking some nice turns, getting a little calmer. For some reason- menopause or whatever-you feel as if it''s time, at rather long last, to look after yourself and your own, serious business. Time to take your own affairs, your own life, your own needs in hand and do something . Maybe something pretty big. There''s a lovely quote from Isak Dinesen that goes, "Women, when they are old enough to have done with the business of being women, and can let loose their strength, may be the most powerful creatures in the world." You may feel that you''re never going to be "done with the business of being a woman"-maybe you don''t want to be-but you know what she means and you know that it''s true. And nice. Very nice. Harry (that''s Henry S. Lodge, M.D., my doctor, coauthor and close pal) and I have been picking away at this project for several years now, and we have talked to an awful lot of women your age and older. We have come to realize just how right Isak Dinesen may be. Unlike men, who are often getting a little shaky as they approach their sixties or retirement age, many women are feeling more independent,
