Grow Younger - Control How You Age

"Dr. Roizen presents his ideas on how you can not only feel healthier, he explains how simple lifestyle changes can produce dramatic results, actually causing your body to feel younger. What is your Real Age? Can you really grow younger?
If you do absolutely nothing, you will continue to age. If you take simple steps like walking 30 minutes a day Dr. Roizen believes you can dramatically alter the course of aging. He talks about taking aspirin, the importance of sleep and why using olive oil is an excellent choice. I was surprised by his advice on coffee and you may want to read up on how caffeine affects aging.
Some of the main features of this short program include discussions about bone mass, muscle mass, blood pressure, exercise, dangers of saturated fat, breathing techniques to reduce stress, life-long learning and the biggest stressors to deal with first.
I learned a few helpful things while watching this DVD, especially the information on Vitamin D, which I think everyone has to worry about. This was very easy to solve with fortified orange juice - Calcium and Vitamin D. I was happy to find out that the orange juice my husband has been buying does have Vitamin D! One less thing to worry about!
While this DVD is interesting, I think I'll also buy the book to read more detailed information on all the topics addressed in the lecture.

Save Your Money and Buy The Book!

"Although the quality of information given on the DVD is excellent, it is grossly lacking in quantity. It contains less than 1/4 of what is in the book.
This DVD does include a 30 minute Q & A session with some of the audience, which is only fair at best. However, you have to go online to take the Real Age Quiz, a fact I never could find mentioned in the description. Nothing really wrong with the meager Exercise Tips.
For me, this was a case of more "sizzle" than "steak."
This production should have included the entire 130 or so recommendations as covered in the book, or it should have plainly said that it did not cover what the book does.
This DVD is really just a promotion to get you to buy the book.
Again,I found this to contain excellent information, just not enough to warrant buying this instead of the book."
The Real Age Makeover: Book and DVD

"Very important information contained in the pages of this book. I also bought the DVD. I watch Drs. Roizen and Oz on the Oprah Show whenever possible. I wish she would produce a weekly show called "You, the Owner's Manual." Learning about our bodies and how they work is the most important education of all."
How great was it?

"It was so great that I gave them as stocking stuffers to my brothers, principal, and a good friend. We're all 50+ and looking for sensible ways to stay healthy. This DVD does just that, while explaining Why! We love it."
