Can you make a resolution to live a healthier and happier life? These days, there’s no shortage of weight-loss programs or nutritional advice — media outlets are constantly releasing ‘late-breaking’ reports about dietary discoveries, many of which contradict previous recommendations. This makes it quite difficult for anyone to know what actions to take.

 

But if you are middle aged, there’s an additional obstacle: Very little of what we read and hear is specifically geared to providing dietary and nutritional guidance for people age 50 and over. Yet, midlife is a time when natural physiological changes and the cumulative results of longstanding lifestyle habits demand that we rethink how we eat if we are to remain vital.

 

This eBook from PBS and Next Avenue gathers advice and wisdom from blogs and articles written for nextavenue.org, a Web site designed for those in this new phase of life that we call Adult, Part 2. Next Avenue’s Fiftysomething Diet takes direct aim at the nutritional needs of those in the second stage of adulthood. Each chapter presents dietary suggestions that can maximize physical and cognitive wellness in the face of the normal bodily shifts and increased risk of disease that occur with age.

 

Whether your goal is to shed pounds, boost energy, beat back dementia or generally maintain good health and a sense of well-being, The Fiftysomething Diet points the way.

Join Billy Graham as he shares the challenges of fading strength but still standing strong in his commitment to finishing life well.

Growing old has been the greatest surprise of my life,” said Billy Graham, known by many as God’s Ambassador. “I would have never guessed what God had in store for me, and I know that as I am nearing home, He will not forsake me the last mile of the way.”

Nearing Home, written by Billy Graham in his nineties, explores the challenges of aging while gleaning foundational truths from Scripture. Billy Graham invites us to journey with him as he considers the golden years while anticipating the hope of being reunited with his wife, Ruth, in his heavenly home that eclipses this world. “When granted many years of life, growing old in age is natural, but growing old with grace is a choice,” said the author. “Growing older with grace is possible for all who will set their hearts and minds on the Giver of grace, the Lord Jesus Christ.”

But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. —Acts 20:24 (ESV)

“Explore with me not only the realities of life as we grow older but also the hope and fulfillment and even joy that can be ours once we learn to look at these years from God’s point of view and discover His strength to sustain us every day.” —BILLY GRAHAM



Turn back your biological clock. A breakthrough book for men--as much fun to read as it is persuasive--Younger Next Year draws on the very latest science of aging to show how men 50 or older can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, and continue to live like fifty-year-olds until well into their eighties. To enjoy life and be stronger, healthier, and more alert. To stave off 70% of the normal decay associated with aging (weakness, sore joints, apathy), and to eliminate over 50% of all illness and potential injuries. This is the real thing, a program that will work for anyone who decides to apply himself to "Harry's Rules."

Harry is Henry S. Lodge, M.D., a specialist in internal medicine and preventive healthcare. Chris Crowley is Harry's 70-year-old patient who's stronger today (and skiing better) than when he was 40. Together, in alternating chapters that are lively, sometimes outspoken, and always utterly convincing, they spell out Harry's Rules and the science behind them. The rules are deceptively simple: Exercise Six Days a Week. Eat What You Know You Should. Connect to Other People and Commit to Feeling Passionate About Something. The science, simplified and demystified, ranges from the molecular biology of growth and decay to how our bodies and minds evolved (and why they fare so poorly in our sedentary, all-feast no-famine culture). The result is nothing less than a paradigm shift in our view of aging.

Welcome to the next third of your life--train for it, and you'll have a ball.
