Thinner This Year: A Younger Next Year Book
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Now in paperback, the latest book in the New York Times bestselling, one-million-copy-plus Younger Next Year franchise. The book that tells every reader how to lose weight, discover new vitality, and get in the best shape of your life. The book with the no-nonsense, no-BS, no-shortcuts approach. The book that shows that there’s a revolution in aging going on. The book that is the how-to of that revolution.
Chris Crowley, the memorable patient and coauthor of Younger Next Year, partners with Jen Sacheck, a nutritionist and fitness expert from Tufts University, and in lively, alternating chapters they spell out a weight-loss plan that will have readers losing up to 25 pounds in the first six months―and, much more significantly, keeping it off next year, and the year after, and so on, for life. The message is straightforward and based on the most up-to-date nutritional science: resist the added-fat, added-sugar concoctions created by the food industry; skip the supplements; pile on fruits and vegetables to your heart’s content, but it’s OK to eat lean meats, too; and don’t drink your calories. And exercise! With its simple, fully illustrated program of 25 “sacred exercises,” here is everything the reader needs to build muscle, protect joints, add mobility, and put off 70% of the normal problems associated with aging and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury.

Aspen retreat weeks. She got tight with Riggs, he set her feet on what turned out to be a thirty-five-pound weight loss program and her optimism perked right up. Excellent. But that’s not the story. Emboldened by that success, she began casting about for a damn good kedge. Ranie lives north of San Francisco and had become something of an open water swimmer, in freezing, wind-tossed San Francisco Bay. She liked it and had a flair for it. Not fast but very steady. And brave as a lion. So she

In other words, if you can make the switch from Dead Food to vegetables and fruit into an adventure, eating fewer calories will more or less take care of itself. Make the Other 50 Percent Count So where does the other 50 percent fall? About 20 percent of your diet should come in the form of whole, not processed, grains. There is a world of whole grains to choose from, so you never have to fear getting sick of
ability to write ten of her own popular books, and still maintain a strong research and leadership role at Tufts. And to Christina, another “Chris,” who helped infuse a sense of undying scientific rigor and ethics into the work that I choose to do. Her national leadership in obesity prevention is making change possible. Both are truly amazing role models. Of course, to every student who asked “why . . . ?” and made me a better teacher, scientist, and mentor—thank you. Finally, and most

Write down absolutely everything that goes into your mouth, without fear or favor. Then sit down at the end of a few days and take a look at what you’ve written. Then look over Jen’s meal plan and the Bad Stuff chapters. The answer—the list of enemies—will jump out at you. Write down your own “List of Enemies”
of an insulin surge in response to elevated blood sugar. Insulin, in effect, works more efficiently, and you need less of it to get the job done. That is subtle but important because less insulin floating around in your blood means less storage of excess glucose as fat. That’s less storage of fat, period. One other predictable outcome of a sugar spike, followed by an insulin spike, is that it leads to a hunger spike. The insulin spike (in response to a flood of fast-digesting carbs) wipes out
