Eat to Cheat Ageing: what you eat helps you make 60 'the new 50' and 80 'the new 70'

Eat to Cheat Ageing is based on the science of nutrition for ageing but written for the everyday reader as well as health professionals. It is not a fad diet.

Learn how the food is vital in maintaining every one of your body’s organs, keeps your blood coursing through your veins and oxygen through your body. Learn how to fight illness and infection, repair bumps and bruises, combat Type 2 Diabetes, and keep your brain adequately fuelled and your mind firing as you’d like it to.
Learn why dieting to lose weight in older age is one of the worst things you can do to your physical and mental well-being.
