The aging process is not totally inevitable, nor is it always irreversible. It is the result of specific chemical assaults on the body, much of which can be significantly counteracted by the foods you choose to eat. While we have yet to find the fountain of youth, the next best thing is an enlightened diet. Engaging but straightforward, Eat Right, Live Longer is a practical guide that focuses on specific ways to enhance and maintain the body's health and youthfulness. Dr. Barnard's nutrition strategies begin by defending the cells of your body against the free radicals and chemical assaults that are fundamental to the aging process. Next, you will learn how foods can balance your natural hormones to help you look and feel younger. In an easy, step-by-step approach, Dr. Barnard shows how you can rejuvenate your bones, your blood vessels, your ability to burn calories, and even your skin and hair. Eat Right, Live Longer also sets the record straight on fat and sugar intake, the effects of various vitamins and minerals, caffeine and alcohol, as well as hormone therapy, free-radicals, cancer prevention, and other important subjects. A menu-planning section provides the essential methods to incorporate Dr. Barnard's prescriptions into your daily diet, along with cooking techniques, shopping tips, pantry staples, and dozens of delicious, no-guilt recipes that ensure a smooth transition to eating smart and living longer.
