Did you know that what you eat is key to maintaining an independent and healthy life? The right food choices maximise physical and mental abilities, immune response and the crucial capacity of every body cell to repair, function and renew itself.

The science of nutrition shows that what someone in their 60s or over needs is quite different to what was needed when they were younger.

Eat to Cheat Ageing is for anyone 65+ wanting to head off declining function in the years ahead. But it’s also for anyone 50+ looking to make food choices tailored to their future health and to head off wrong food choices that could hasten dementia, type 2 diabetes, frailty, and more.

The genesis of Eat to Cheat Ageing lies in dietitian, Ngaire Hobbins’ frustration in seeing so many older people struggling with everyday physical tasks, cognitive decline and dementia, 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.

About the Author

Ngaire Hobbins is a fully qualified and widely experienced dietitian passionate about encouraging people to relish great food in order to get the most out of life.

Ngaire has worked in many and varied areas of nutrition, including hospitals and in private practice and spent a number of years within the food industry focussing on developing clear communication between producers and consumers on the food value and qualities of their products. Out of these experiences has grown her deep appreciation of the benefits and pleasures of real food.

          This book changed my life. I was permanently tired and bogged down in diet advice that didn't seem to help at all. Ms Hobbins recognises that most popular and readily offered advice about diets is not right for the not-so-young. The book offers a simple way of eating and living that makes sense and agrees with what my body has been saying for years. No gimmicks, just good food, lots of protein and plenty of exercise. And no losing weight. This oldie once again enjoys her food without guilt and has more energy and even a spring in her step. The book is easy to read - well-written, without jargon and obscure technical terms. I recommend it most highly.
