What you eat helps maximise body and brain function, and how well every cell, every tissue, every muscle in your body repairs, functions and renews itself. Eat to Cheat Ageing is for anyone in their 50s wanting to head off declining function in their late 60s and beyond. It?s for people in their 60s who now need to make food choices tailored to their future health. And, for people in their 80s and 90s, it?s essential to head off what, at that age, could be the disastrous consequences of the wrong food choices. The science of nutrition shows that the food a growing young body needs are quite different to those of someone in their 60s or over. Eat to Cheat Ageing helps the reader understand the science behind their nutritional needs in an engaging and reader-friendly style. It is not a fad diet. There are no magic drinks or special pills. It?s about going back to basics: eating real food in combinations that help not hinder the body meet the challenges of later age and prevent premature ageing and decline. The genesis of Eat to Cheat Ageing lies in dietitian, Ngaire Hobbins? frustration in seeing so many people struggling with everyday physical tasks or cognitive decline, and suffering debilitating frailty ? particularly after illness or surgery ? when something as simple a change in diet may have helped them continue to live productive, independent lives.
