The Ageless Body: How To Hold Back The Years To Achieve A Better Body.pdf
Discover the new goals and new rules that are a route to a healthier, better looking, and better functioning body. For life.
From Gwen Stefani and Cameron Diaz to Jennifer Aniston and Naomi Watts, a new breed of forty- and fifty-plus women are redefining not just what an ageless body looks like, but what's entailed in achieving it. A dramatic shift in body expectations in the last few years means that despite being plagued by a slowing metabolism and a naturally-occurring loss of muscle mass, pre- and post-menopausal women can realistically aim for the healthy, well-functioning body they crave as well as a physique that looks good with a flat stomach and sculpted arms.
Peta Bee and Dr. Sarah Schenker are the living embodiment of this new breed of woman: both in their forties with children, both with hectic careers and social lives. And both with the same bodies they had in their thirties. What matters, they have discovered through self-experimentation and trawling scientific literature, is how you go about holding back the years. And the rules--for both exercise and diet--have changed.
Peta Bee is a health and fitness journalist who writes for The Times, Sunday Times, and Irish Examiner and was named Medical Journalists Association's Freelancer of the Year twice. She is the author of seven books, including Fast Exercise, the 2014 bestseller.
Dr. Sarah Schenker, a registered dietitian and nutritionist, is co-author of the bestselling Fast Diet Recipe Book. She regularly contributes to the Daily Mail and Glamour as well as shows including This Morning and Watchdog.
