The premise of this book is to illuminate and clarify some of the recent information on healthy aging as it is evolving, and also to provide insight, guidance, help, and yes, even wisdom for those of you who wish to start NOW down the road to becoming happy, healthy and fit as you get "older - and not old". It has been said that we "spend our health accumulating our wealth, and spend our wealth to get our health back once it's gone". This is just wrong in my book. Why not live and maximize your opportunities for health and wealth TODAY and shed the regret, guilt, anguish and pain of what we COULD have done differently. The past is gone - we cannot change it. Living in the present is the only sure way to begin this journey of becoming happy, healthy and fit for life - so why not start here and now? We are the new pioneers of a new paradigm on aging and I personally can't wait to find out what is possible - for ALL of us! I want to be able to run a 6 minute mile on my 80th birthday. What do you want to be able to do at a comparable age? Walk on the Great Wall of China? Fly a plane? Or just play with your grandchildren? Take a step into your future by deciding TODAY to examine yourself openly and honestly - and see what happens. You could be in for a BIG and happy surprise!
