I Although the picture of Dr. Weir on the book makes you wonder how old he is because of his gray hair and long beard, it does contain some words of wisdom for living longer. I recommend this book for the person who is serious about healthy living. The diet outlined by Dr. Weir is one that requires some changes from the typical American diet. He likes whole foods and natural foods and these are not always easy to come by if you live in a community with limited shopping resources. I live in the country and the stores here have regular produce, but finding whole grains and things like that is not easy. I have to drive over 100 miles to get health foods. Exercises he suggested are practical and adaptable to most people. Even my father who is 90 years old can do most of them.
Mr. Weil has written a vast number of books on health.
He is very knowledgeable in all his materials. He doesn't promote the use
of creams, and other aids on the market that are supposed to "promote" youth.
His thoughts are that when you take care of the body on the inside and exercise
moderately that you will be much healthier thereby giving you a longer life.
I have done alot of research on health and well being, and I do agree with Mr.
Weil that what you eat and how much does play a key part in how you feel and look.
Although, I do think a little make-up is okay, and I do dye my hair because I
inherited the genes from my father's side of the family in which everyone's hair
turns premature grey. But, I do strive to follow a balanced diet and moderate exercise.
The recipes are all healthy, just as there is different things for different people, you may
not like the recipes, but you can get the general idea of preparing a healthy meal.
I do recommend this book because even though you may know alot about health, there is always
some gleaning that can be taken from this book.
Dr. Andrew Weil has including soon very wonderful new ideas for healthy aging in this book. He has including some wonderful recipes and cooking ideas with natural foods. I know we can all learn to feel healthier and live longer with this book.
