A companion to the best-selling RealAge: Are You as Young as You Can Be? shares new medical findings discovered since the first book's publication, identifying foods and practices that can decrease susceptibility to numerous age-related conditions.


Why not live at 60 feeling like you did at 35?

Thousands of Americans are younger today than they were five years ago. How is that possible? By following the specific recommendations that reverse aging in Dr. Michael Roizen's bestselling book RealAge®: Are You As Young As You Can Be?, people who were previously much older than their chronological age have now taken up to twentynine years off their biological ages. Since that first publication, more than 10 million people have taken the RealAge® test in one form or another, and thousands of people have thanked Dr. Roizen for helping them make simple changes in their lives -- changes that have made them healthier, younger, and more vibrant.

In the last several years, Dr. Roizen and his team have learned much more about the aging process. The RealAge® Makeover makes sense of recent critical medical findings -- mportant new research on inflammation in your arteries, stress reduction, chronic disease management, hormone replacement therapy, and other choices you can make to keep aging at a distance. You’ll also find the latest on vitamins and other supplements, which are age-reducing, which are aging, and which ones to avoid if you are taking certain medications. Roizen then offers more than seventy ways to reduce or even prevent 80 percent of the diseases that make you feel older. For example, coffee or the right kind of chocolate in moderate amounts can help reduce inflammation, preserving your arteries, joints, and memory. But the wrong choice can lead to needless aging and loss of energy, such as taking too much Vitamin A. And The RealAge® Makeover tells you how much (in years) each choice is worth so you can make the choices that are meaningful to you.

More potent than any statistic or finding are the personal stories interwoven throughout -- success stories from readers who followed the RealAge program, became biologically younger, and are living happier, healthier lives. With this book, readers have more opportunity than ever to turn back their biological clock to look, feel, and actually be many years younger.

Join the RealAge® Revolution and give yourself a RealAge® Makeover!

This book is so well-studied and put in such a positive light that it has changed my life. Never before has a diet book inspired me to permanently change the way I eat, exercise, and do other proven healthful practices like develop a strong social network and floss my teeth twice a day. This book is rigorously researched and scientifically written, containing only information that has been verified by five or more metastudies, including long-term, epidemiological studies and controlled lab studies, always double-blind and peer-reviewed.

The Real Age Makeover is aimed at intelligent readers who hope to increase their lifespan while living in top form. I once saw Dr. Roizen interviewed about why he and Dr. Oz had written the cartoon-filled "YOU" series of diet books and he said, without seeming to try to flatter women, that the "YOU" books were a "dumbed-down" series aimed at men, who, overall, have less interest in the minute scientific details of weight loss and health. In a culture where women are devalued for being overweight, it makes sense that women would read enough books and articles on weight loss to become highly literate in the science of health.
