Front Cover
Hodder & Stoughton, May 3, 2022 - Psychology - 304 pages

Research suggests that only 10-30% of our lifespan is determined by our genetics. This means that the vast majority of how we age is directly related to choices we make everyday - how and what we eat, exercise and sleep quality, to name a few. So, while ageing itself may be inevitable, what if there were a way to measure our biological age? And what if there were strategies to slow down, or even reverse, the ageing process?

In True Age, Dr Morgan Levine gives us an insight into the cutting-edge developments in the science of aging and longevity and teaches us that through understanding our biological age, we can monitor and even control the process of ageing.

True Age explores:
- The concept of biological age and the methods now available to determine your own.
- Types of foods likely to decrease our biological age - and which will age you prematurely.
- What types of exercise are most effective for turning back the clock.
- How much sleep we need and what other lifestyle patterns are most likely to help slow and reverse ageing.

True Age will equip you with the tools you need to develop personal regimes, diets and routines specifically tailored to keep you looking - and feeling - as young as possible. Using her years of expert research in the field, Dr Levine will put you on the path to living a healthier and more proactive life.
