Ageing is a triumph of modern medicine. On average we can expect to live 10 or 20 years longer than our grandparents' generation. These extra years are a wonderful bonus but also impose unprecedented challenges to our bodies and brains. Recent scientific investigations have uncovered foods and ingredients that can help protect brain cells from damage by oxidation and inflammation, and keep the systems that support them working as well as possible. There is no magic pill (and beware of anyone who claims a simple solution), but there is evidence-based advice on foods and lifestyle strategies that can give your brain the best chance of peak health. An international authority on nutrition for aged care, dietitian Ngaire Hobbins presents a compelling argument that the food you eat can make a big difference to your quality of life as you age. Combined with inspiring recipes that offer optimal nutrition for brain health and can be adapted for households for singles to larger families, Better Brain Food is the lifestyle guide you need as you or those you love grow old.

The nutritional needs of people living beyond their late 60s is quite different to those of younger adults. This is acknowledged in the scientific research, but until now not widely known by everyday people. This book seeks to address that - it's firmly based in that science but written in everyday language, providing practical, sensible advice on what to eat and do enjoy a productive, independent life as the years advance. It covers the basic challenges advancing age imposes on the body and how eating needs are affected and change with time. It discusses subjects including bodyweight, diabetes, appetite and the maintenance of physical and cognitive function and provides simple eating advice for all older people - whether fit and well or dealing with physical or cognitive decline.

Washington Post reporter Margaret Webb Pressler's husband Jim is one of those people who doesn't look his age. After years of fielding questions about how he does it, Pressler decided to ask the experts. Her conversations with some of the world's leading experts on aging and genetics, which she wrote about for the newspaper, revealed a new world of research and advice about aging and what you can do to age less, feel better, and look better. Virtually everything she uncovered dovetailed with habits that Jim had already established for himself. But beyond that, she found a tremendous amount of new research about how and why we age, the anti-aging properties of foods and supplements, and the youth-retaining effects of certain behaviors. Cheat the Clock uses Jim Pressler as a jumping-off point to examine the foremost advice and research about aging well, with actionable advice for real people that they can easily incorporate into their lives on a daily basis. Jim's experience is worth sharing: Margaret's research showed that he is proof there are many small, easy steps that people can take that make a difference in how good they feel and look over many years, and that the proverbial "good genes" don't play as large of a role as we once thought. These are not the ideals of a fitness buff or a nutrition fanatic; these minor tweaks in diet, exercise, lifestyle, and personal care are painless to adopt and achievable for anyone, but can have a big payoff over time. In Margaret's engaging style, Cheat the Clock shows the long-term rewards of adopting a new regimen focused on these crucial aspects: - Maintaining a healthy weight - Engaging in the right kind and right amount of exercise - Eating an anti-aging diet - Getting antioxidants from food - Discovering the wonders of the right dosage of Vitamin E - Avoiding behaviors that age people the most - Having plenty of sex - Taking care of skin and teeth - Adjusting attitude and lifestyle

From an esteemed geneticist and the director of gerontology at the Personal Genome Project at Harvard Medical School comes a revolutionary plan for curbing memory loss and improving cognitive longevity that will forever change how you think about diet and aging. All around the world people are living longer than ever, but record numbers of us are experiencing cognitive decline and other brain disorders later in life. New studies show that Alzheimer’s disease is the number three cause of death in developed countries, behind heart disease and cancer. But there is good news: We now have the knowledge to extend both lifespan and mindspan, helping to ensure that our minds and bodies stay in peak form at any age. Studying the diets of the “Mindspan Elite”—those populations that live longest with low levels of dementia—as well as the ways that certain food additives and ingredients interact with our genes, Dr. Preston Estep explains how the recent slew of popular brains-and-aging books have steered us down the wrong dietary path. Shattering myths about which foods are (and are not) beneficial to our brains, The Mindspan Diet reveals a simple plan to slow cognitive decline. Startling in its revelations about healthy eating for those over the age of forty, it challenges us to rethink our approach to many common staples, including: • Iron: While iron-fortified foods sound healthy, high iron intake can be toxic, especially for people over forty, and increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease. • Whole grains: Processed grains such as white rice, pasta, and flour are actually staples in the diets of cultures with the best cognitive health. • Protein: Though it’s considered by some to be a miracle macronutrient, high levels of protein are actually hard on the kidneys, and may promote cancer and accelerate the progression of dementia. Complete with food recommendations, shopping lists, advice on reading nutrition labels, and more than seventy delicious recipes, The Mindspan Diet shows that you can enjoy the richest flavors life has to offer and remain lean, healthy, and cognitively intact for a very long life. Praise for The Mindspan Diet “Eye-opening . . . fascinating, important . . . Estep includes plenty of practical info on improving one’s mindspan and puts some refined grains back on the table.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Presenting a sensible regimen that people can follow easily, this recommended diet book [has] useful information about aging.”—Library Journal “Dr. Estep exposes common misconceptions and well-intentioned but misguided advice on aging and diet. Rigorously researched, this book is also full of tasty tips—illuminating not just a set of rules to follow as blindly as the last set, but how you can apply scientific methods to assess these and other important issues in our increasingly technical world.”—George M. Church, Ph.D., Robert Winthrop Professor of Genetics and Professor of Health Sciences and Technology, Harvard Medical School “This gem of a book offers a practical road map for maximizing vibrant cognitive functioning throughout life. We come away convinced that a longer and better life is as close as our own kitchen cupboards. And the Chickpea and Fava Bean Tapenade is to not die for!”—Ronald C. Kessler, Ph.D., McNeil Family Professor of Health Care Policy, Harvard Medical School “A fascinating guide to modifying your diet to prolong the longevity of your brain as well as your health.”—Dr. Tim Spector, author of The Diet Myth From the Hardcover edition.
