Twenty-seven years after writing the New York Times bestseller, Fit for Life, Marilyn Diamond is in the best shape of her life - at age 68. She's young on the inside and outside thanks to a total nutrition and exercise turnaround after she learned that her practice of subsisting on a diet that was about 80 percent raw fruits and vegetables and overdoing cardio exercise was actually aging her faster and making her less healthy! Her husband, Dr. Donald Schnell, had a similar health wakeup call: a heart attack attributed to diabetes. He, too, turned his health around and even rebuilt damaged heart tissue! Young for Life represents their passion to keep others from making the same mistakes. Drawing from the latest science on whole-food nutrition, nutritional supplements, and resistance exercise, Diamond and Schnell have created a program that: dispels the myths about what it takes to be fit and healthy. shows readers how to identify Nutritional Deficiency Disorder in themselves and overhaul their diets without dieting. How? By adding back the red meat, eggs, and other proteins and saturated fats that have been demonized as unhealthy by the government and medical community yet are crucial to disease prevention and slower aging. Detoxifies the body and combats cancer, heart disease, obesity, skinny-fat syndrome and insulin resistance through elevating blood levels of critical vitamins and minerals, particularly the B complexes, and vitamins D, C, and E. Halts age-related muscle-wasting (sarcopenia) - and even builds abs--through an old-school exercise routine of isometrics that takes just 60 seconds a day. Burns calories and blasts belly fat with a "daily dozen' of dynamic isotonic exercises that takes just 10 minutes a day. Provides readers with dozens of tasty recipes for meals that both Marilyn and Dr. Schnell have eaten during their dramatic health makeovers.
