Younger You: Reduce Your Bio Age - and Live Longer, Better Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Add three years to your life and help prevent disease in just eight weeks.
Based on the groundbreaking study that shaved three years off a subjects' age in just eight weeks, discover a proven, accessible plan to prevent diseases and reduce your biological age.
It's true: getting older is inevitable and your chronological age can only move in one direction. But you also have a biological age, which scientists can measure by assessing how your genes are expressed through epigenetics.
Exciting new research shows that your bio age can actually move in reverse - and Dr. Kara Fitzgerald's groundbreaking, rigorous clinical trial proved it's possible. By eating delicious foods and establishing common-sense lifestyle practices that positively influence genetic expression, study participants reduced their bio age by just over three years in only eight weeks!
Now Dr. Fitzgerald shares the diet and lifestyle plan that shows you how to influence your epigenetics for a younger you. In Younger You you'll learn:
- It's not your genetics that determines your age and level of health, it's your epigenetics
- How DNA methylation powerfully influences your epigenetic expression
- The foods and lifestyle choices that most affect DNA methylation
- Simple swaps to your daily routines that will add years to your life
- The full eating and lifestyle program to reduce your bio age and increase vitality
- How to take care of your epigenetic expression at every life stage, from infancy through midlife and your later decades
We don't have to accept a descent into disease and unwellness as we age as inevitable: when you reduce bio age you reduce your odds of developing all the major diseases, including diabetes, cancer and dementia. With assessment tools for determining your bio age and plans for putting it all into practice, Younger You helps you repair years of damage, ward off chronic disease and optimize your health-for years to come.

One little mistake in the book though (but it has nothing to do with her program!). On page 27 she mentions the twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly and says that we can remember Scott as the astronaut singing "Major Tom' in space. In fact it was Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield who did this beautiful rendition of Bowie's chef d'oeuvre.

At the start of the book introduces the concept of your “Bio Age”, and how this differs from your actual chronological age. She explains how the field of epigenetics has recently allowed for a much more accurate assessment of bio age, and a better understanding of what steps can be taken to lower a person's bio age.
The first part of the book explains “The New Science of Aging”, discussing epigenetics, genes, and diet and lifestyle choices that can lower bio age. The second part of the book focuses on general advice and diagnostic tools to help asses your bio age, plan a diet, and add in supplements. The third section is more about customizing the plan to fit your specific needs, and monitoring changes to design a strategy that is optimal for you.
At the end of the book, the first Appendix section contains dozens of recipes. These recipes consist of simple instructions, without pictures of the food. All of the recipes DO include nutritional information; such as total protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, and calories. This is very helpful in planning out a precise and targeted diet, and I wish more recipe books included this information. The recipes are divided into: Breakfast, Light Dishes, Main Courses, Snacks and Sweets, and Beverages. There are also more pages of useful resources; such as supplement lists, ingredient notes, and even information about the methylation cycle.
Overall I enjoyed reading this book. The text was informative, and the list of recipes and nutritional information at the end was very helpful. Even though I had previously read very similar information about aging, I still appreciated the way that the information was presented here; and the resources at the end really helped to provide examples of positive changes that you can make right away.
Following this program, we’re less likely to incur age-related diseases, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and heart ailments. Yes, I’ve heard of many of these interventions before, but I love the fact that we now know the best ones – a clear, concise list. This PROOF compels me to make it happen much more than theoretical diet changes; the “shoulds” that I sometimes do and sometimes don’t. I’ve always been overwhelmed by the “shoulds” because they seem so infinite that I just want to bury my head in the sand. This book, although packed with science, brings relief in its simple, doable actions.
Sure, some of the more educated out there know about methylation, but I never quite understood it and its importance. Thankfully, this book is for laypeople, like me. I’ve never understood epigenetics, either. Now I understand that means that I can turn off certain genes, so I’m not as doomed to inherit my paternal grandparents’ heart problems and my maternal grandparents’ cancers… and I can do it with food, moderate exercise and meditation... uh, excuse me but, WOW! The research behind this book is very exciting, ground-breaking and, I feel, the beginning of a new era in health. I’m gratefully trading in my persistent, debilitating overwhelm for a new, clear pathway to health… ahhhhhh (relief + joy)!
