Fit at Fifty and Beyond- Book Review


Article by Fabafterfifty

How to be Fit at Fifty and Beyond – Book review

Many of us prepare for the financial aspects of our future retirement, but fail to prepare for the lifestyle changes we need in order to remain healthy and fit. Fitness is not just for the young, it is available at any age. Dr Michael Goth. A leading expert on ageing and nutrition, has written Fit at Fifty and Beyond: A Balanced Exercise and Nutrition programme. The book provides sensible advice for mature adults to improve their overall health and well–being, and overall fitness and appearance.  The book offers sensible advice on nutrition,  highlighting that a healthy diet shouldn’t be viewed as restricting food, but as a change in eating patterns and behaviour that will optimise health and fitness.

It contains an excellent chapter on the process of ageing and why we need to adapt our diet as we age.

The section on exercise is practical and straightforward- with an easy to follow exercise programme well backed up by lots of photographs- although I haven’t yet tried to do the splits as illustrated! (I’ve not yet started the advanced section!)
Dr Goth also provides tips on how to maintain a healthy eating and exercise programme while travelling.

Fit at Fifty and Beyond is a good basic handbook, and contains some interesting recipes
