Stop—and even reverse!—age-related weight gain and muscle loss with the first-ever weight-loss plan specifically designed to shrink your belly, extend your life, and create your healthiest self at mid-life and beyond.
You don’t have to gain weight as you age. That’s the simple yet revolutionary promise of The Whole Body Reset, which uncovers why standard diet and exercise advice stops working for us as we approach midlife—and reveals how simple changes to the way we eat can halt, and even reverse, age-related weight gain and muscle loss.
The Whole Body Reset presents stunning new evidence about the power of “protein timing” for people at midlife—research that blows away current government guidelines, refutes the myth of slowing metabolisms and “inevitable” weight gain, and changes the way people in their mid-forties and older should think about food. The Whole Body Reset explains in simple, inspiring terms exactly how our bodies change with age, and how eating to accommodate those changes can make us respond to exercise as if we were twenty to thirty years younger.
Developed by AARP, tested by a panel of more than 100 AARP employees, and approved by an international board of doctors, nutritionists, and fitness experts, The Whole Body Reset doesn’t use diet phases, eating windows, calorie restriction, or other trendy gimmicks. Its six simple secrets and scores of recipes are easy to follow, designed for real people living in the real world. A dining guide even shows how to follow this program in popular restaurants from McDonald’s to Starbucks to Olive Garden. And best of all: It works!
Perrine (Wheat Belly), executive director of AARP the Magazine, and nutritionist Skolnik (Grill Yourself Skinny) lay out an easy-to-follow weight loss program for those older than 50. The plan aims "to prevent age-related muscle loss, reverse age-related weight gain, and most important, preserve our long-term health" and does so via a fairly simple protocol that hinges on eating the "right amount of quality protein": 25 30 grams per meal. The included "Action Step" worksheets outline ways to, among other things, swap out processed foods for whole foods, and add fiber to meals. There are more than 50 recipes, which include Muscled-Up Oats with Blueberries, Almonds, and Hemp Seeds and the "I Ain't Cookin' Tonight" Taco Bowl. The book's strength is its wealth of helpful tools: there's a guide to making sense of labels, shopping list suggestions, and a seven-day sample menu planner with entr es from such restaurants as Buffalo Wild Wings and Chipotle. Readers looking for new health tricks to replace strategies that no longer work will find this a resource worth returning to.
It’s a lot of talk that isn’t that useful. Menus and recipes
Really aren’t what majority of people eat. It was a total waste of my money.
