Dietitian, Ngaire Hobbins has seen too many older people struggle with cognitive decline, become less physically active and independent and suffer debilitating frailty - particularly after illness or surgery - when something as simple as a change in diet may have helped them continue to lead active and productive lives.
Eat to Cheat Ageing is based on the science of nutrition for ageing but written for the everyday reader as well as health professionals. It is not a fad diet. It's about going back to basics: eating and enjoying real food, being active at a level that works for you and being able to live life to the full.
Learn how the food is vital in maintaining every one of your body's organs, keeps your blood coursing through your veins and oxygen through your body. Learn how to fight illness and infection, repair bumps and bruises, combat Type 2 Diabetes, and keep your brain adequately fuelled and your mind firing as you'd like it to.
Learn why dieting to lose weight in older age is one of the worst things you can do to your physical and mental well-being!
About the Author
Too many people in their 70s and beyond are starving themselves into ill health and physical and mental decline. Its not their fault - they are at the mercy of a health system focused on the needs of younger people and those needs far too often don't apply as you enter your later years.
I'm a specialist geriatric dietitian and I'm passionate about helping older people to enjoy productive, independent lives.
What ageing bodies need is not the same as what was needed in younger years.
My book and my website will help you understand what those needs are, what to do and how to eat so you get to enjoy the years ahead as long as you had hoped.
