      Straight from America's fittest CEO. Fact: You can be in the best shape of your life at any age. Well, because I am living, breathing proof. I'm 60 years-old and I'm measurably fitter than I was 10 years ago. Fast-forward 12 months from now, and I intend to be in even better physical and mental condition than I am : Strauss Zelnick.   • The Age Well Project: Easy Ways to a Longer, Healthier, Happier Life by Annabel Streets and Susan Saunders (Piatkus, £). To order a copy for £, go to or call.

      In the March issue of Better Nutrition, actress-turned-author—and two-time cancer survivor—Suzanne Somers shares revelations from her new book, A New Way to Age: The Most Cutting-Edge Advances in Antiaging, in which she interviews forward-thinking doctors and scientists about the latest breakthroughs in natural health poised to help us live long, vital lives. THE IMPORTANCE OF HEALTHY AGEING. Encouraging a balanced diet, regular physical exercise, remaining socially active, and avoiding certain behaviours like smoking have been shown to reduce one’s chance of developing a variety of chronic diseases.

    The good news is that it is never too late to start living a healthy lifestyle. According to Dr. Margaret Moore, who is an advisor for the Healthy Aging Program for the Center for Disease Surveillance and Prevention (CDC), there are a variety of ways to improve your health through a healthy diet, exercise and more, even well into old age.   Sure to be debated on talk shows and in living rooms, Vaillant's definitive and inspiring book is the new classic account of how we live and how we can live better. It will receive massive media attention, and with good reason: we have never seen anything like it, and what it has to tell us will make all the difference in the world/5(6).
