Younger

A Breakthrough Program to Reset Your Genes, Reverse Aging, and Turn Back the Clock 10 Years
Borrow Borrow Borrow

The New York Times bestselling author of The Hormone Cure and The Hormone Reset Diet shows every woman how to create a lifestyle that will help her look great, feel energized, and slow down the effects of aging.

Feel destined for cellulite, saddle bags, and belly fat? Does your family come from a long line of Alzheimer's, cancer, or heart disease? Will nothing help your aging skin or declining libido or flagging energy? This book is for you.

The body is magnificent but it doesn't come with a lifetime warranty, or an operating manual. You're the result of millions of years of evolution, but many of the adaptations that helped your ancestors survive are now working overtime to accelerate the aging process. The assumption here is that we are our genes and therefore trapped by the past. The good news is that your genetic code—the DNA sequence that is the biochemical basis of heredity—can play a minor role in the way you age.

The scientific reality is that 90 percent of the signs of aging and disease are caused by lifestyle choices, not your genes. In other words, you have the capability to overcome and transform your genetic history and tendencies. Harvard/MIT—trained physician Sara Gottfried, M.D. has created a revolutionary 7-week program that empowers us to make the critical choices necessary to not just look young, but also feel young.

Dr. Gottfried identifies and builds this book around the five-key factors that lead to accelerated aging -the muscle factor, the brain factor, the hormone factor, the gut factor, and the toxic fat factor. The 7-week program addresses these factors and treats them in an accessible and highly practical protocol and is as follows:

  • Feed—Week 1
  • Sleep—Week 2
  • Move—Week 3
  • Release—Week 4
  • Expose—Week 5
  • Soothe—Week 6
  • Think—Week 7
  • Younger increases not only your lifespan, but also your healthspan. Dr. Gottfried's program makes it possible to change the way you age, stay younger longer, and remain healthy and vibrant for all of your days.

      December 19, 2016
      Gynecologist Gottfried (The Hormone Reset Diet) emphasizes the role of environment and lifestyle in her new book about how to age well. According to her, a regimen of diet, exercise, and supplements can “maximize what your genes can do.” Her advice boils down to the basics—eat and sleep well, exercise, destress, and live in a healthy environment—which she enumerates in a seven-step protocol. Each step is meant to be adopted over a week, and the protocol for each one combines detailed explanations of the genes related to that step and the supplements, foods, or behaviors that turn each gene on or off. There are three levels for implementing each protocol: the basic rituals, the more involved steps (often including many
      supplements), and the “advanced projects” readers can try. The book contains a “healthspan” quiz , recipes, and copious notes. Throughout, Dr. Sara (as she calls herself) urges readers to skip the science if it overwhelms them and turn to the steps themselves. Her relatable, energetic delivery adds conviction to her cogent advice. Agent: Celeste Fine, Sterling Lord Literistic.

    • Mark Hyman, M.D., New York Times bestselling author and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine "Younger is the breakthrough book we've been waiting for on DNA, epigenetics, and aging. It is a stunning achievement by one of our wisest and most thoughtful women physicians. Don't wait for a scary diagnosis - start the Younger protocol without delay."
    • JJ Virgin, New York Times bestselling author of The Virgin Diet "Gottfried speaks to the secret question of a generation: 'Now that we have things figured out, how do we stay on the planet long enough to live what we finally know?' Her guidance is an invaluable resource to those who feel we are spiritually youthing as we physically age."
    • Marianne Williamson "Mind blown. Prepare to completely shift your paradigm around aging. Dr. Sara makes the latest science accessible to show you how to de-age your body and lengthen your health span. This book is a stunning, epic achievement."
