A bootcamp in Utah in 118 degree heat A raw food diet Hypnotic suggestions A team of crack computer scientists who can age and de age a face with the click of a mouse The World Convention on Anti Aging Medicine in Las Vegas headlined by Suzanne Somers These are just a few of the stops Lauren Kessler makes on her journey to reverse time from the inside outAt this moment one in three Americans are entering mid.

and I receive no remuneration from the publisher or author other than a copy of the book in exchange for posting a review on my blogs Through a contest sponsored on Goodreadscom I recently won an ARC of Lauren Kessler s latest non fiction book COUNTER CLOCKWISE The following is my review Disclaimer I have taken care to not with a couple of minor exceptions directly uote from the book Please note that the opinions and any claims the reader may infer from this review are mine and not necessarily those of the author Thank you vmls If I could turn back time if I could find a way In Diane Warren s If I Could Turn Back Time Cher sings of love and of regret over things said and things done wishing to turn back time and take away the hurt But as we all know time moves in one directionOr does itIn Lauren Kessler s Counter Clockwise the author writes of turning back time in a literal and profound sense in a way that will change your life in a way that will improve the uality of your life not just now but as one grows older chronologically that is With solid research and testimony from experts in their respective fields behind her Lauren explains that while age may be something measured by passing of years on a calendar how we age the speed at which we grow older is something that we have much much control over than one might thinkLauren s Year of Hypnosis Hormones Dark Chocolate and Other Adventures in the World of Anti Aging as Counter Clockwise is subtitled is an odyssey of discovery and a search for the truth behind the hype through the anti aging realm A market that some estimate in the next couple of years will exceed 200 billion in revenueLauren explores the pills supplements creams lotions and assorted devices pushed on a largely unsuspecting public that is in search of the fountain of youth She tackles fitness and exercise regimens that would make even the most hardcore Marine boot camp drill sergeant toss in the towel and head for the lockers The lure of cosmetic surgery guaranteed to take years off your body if not your mind along with thousands of your hard earned dollars sings its siren song to Lauren Does she succumb Ha If you re expecting spoilers from me you haven t been reading my reviewsDiet When we hear that word most of us think in terms of losing weight but remember this diet is not just a verb Diet in the noun form is an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and if your uest is to turn back the hands of time what when and how you eat is even important Lauren s research I would have loved to be her research assistant at least for this part takes her through the science of food and nutrition in search of the right foods and combinations of foods that will promote optimal health and get those narrow black hands winding backward around the clock face Think you know what a superfood is Want the real lowdown on dark chocolate and red wine Pay particular attention to that chapterEven a good diet doesn t mean your body and mind can t use a little help from the supplement market Lauren has done a great deal of research in the area of supplements and come up with her own list I think this is a list worth paying attention toExercise how important is it Lauren gives us the sweaty truth After reading Chapter Eleven I am rethinking my current exercise regimen which presently consists of a daily five mile run if my stress level is up Deadlines and commitments what are you gonna do and thrice weekly visits to the gym Yeah yeah I know there are seven days in a week But I m young I ve got plenty of time right Hmmm might want to be re thinking that philosophy VeronicaThere is a philosophy a sound one by the way unlike some of the hoke and hype surrounding some diet exercise and supplement stay young regimens that explores how the mind contributes to whether we age well at a normal pace or age uicklyLifestyle diet attitude the wrong combination of these can give a thirty year old the body inside and out of a sixty year old And vice versa the right combination well imagine being 60 in calendar years but with the outside body of a 50 year old without the benefit of cosmetic surgery and the inside body of a 40 year old My words not Lauren s vmlsIn Counterclockwise Lauren shows us how we can not only slow down the march of time but even reverse it to some degree Has she found the fountain of youth No there is no such thing Forget all those infomercials and so called experts on midnight television hawking the latest key to eternal youth it is for the most part little than snake oil Want to know a secret You have the key not to eternal youth but to living longer to living younger than the age on your driver s licenseI hesitate to say that there is one single thing that will turn back time that will slow down that clock and turn you into an anti ager but in a very real sense there isOne thing from which everything else flowsAttitude As is pointed out in the book expectation rules outcome This is a simple yet deeply profound truth that it seems humans need constant reminding of What we think how we think is what we become Attitude Getting into the proper mindset Why does anything fail Diets exercise jobs relationships all have one thing in common for not succeeding Our attitude If you don t expect to meet that weight goal if you don t expect to finish that marathon or 10K race if you don t expect to get that job you want you won t It s that simple You can t just want something to happen you have to make it happen All of the research and advice Lauren offers in Counter Clockwise will help you make things happenMy wife Christina has on than one occasion remarked that I act like a twelve year old Well pardon me for not always acting my age but as Chapter Twelve unless they get renumbered I am reading an advance reader copy not the final to market book points out that may not always be a bad thing If I had only five seconds to summarize the message in Chapter Twelve it would be thisThink young live young be young Fortunately I don t have only five secondsIn the 21st century job market so than at any other time perhaps youth the perception of youth that is rules Wisdom experience and knowledge take second place to a pretty face and a fit and trim body You can take the band aid approach to youth cosmetic surgery and the latest fad diet but if what you really want is to look feel and live not just younger but longer with a better uality of life Read Counter Clockwise This book is not 230 pages of opinion and conjecture The author has through exhaustive research and at times incredible self sacrifice written a roadmap if you will to a happier healthier and longer life a life increasingly disease resistant and increasingly energetic Lauren has consulted with some of the top experts in their respective fields subjecting her body and mind at times to total strangers and come away with some very good newsWe can turn back time But rememberYou can t just want something to happen you have to make it happen I ve read a book or two on self help diet and exercise and wasn t terribly impressed I ve listened to a spiel or two at conventions fairs and such and was impressed with the free water bottles and key fobs than the product or the pitchman s speech After reading Counter Clockwise however I recommend it without hesitation I don t say this about a lot of books I read but this one it will be life changing Lauren covers all the bases here with good solid advice as well as some resources to set you on the path to a fulfilling lifeLauren s keen sense of humour and occasional snarkiness gotta love it made this a thoroughly enjoyable read as well as being very informative and educationalThere was one thing missing from the book thoughI didn t see the chapter on the health benefits of Sonic s Texas Toast Breakfast Sandwich or Five Guys Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseburger yes with the cajun fries I m sure they will be in the final version of Counter Clockwise Right LaurenOne final thought Lauren I have to side with your daughter on this don t mess with my smoothies Thank youVeronica Marie Lewis Shaw12 May

I enjoyed reading this book it was both informative and entertaining I learned a few things with information not being oversimplified too much What I can not get over though why is there no source list of any type Throughout the book there are plenty of sources described using author names names of journals dates locations etc From what I could tell Kessler provides plenty of information on the sources within the text and they we re often good peer reviewed studies and papers but there were no citations of any kind or style not even footnotes There is no source list in the back For me this undermines the purpose and value of the book Without sources for the huge amount of information described the author s intention could not have been for anything beyond thought provoking entertainment Or she thinks readers are gullible and will believe anything printed and bound

Life and many are wondering ‘How did I get to be this old’ Plenty will turn to miracle creams injections fillers and surgery to reverse the hands oftime but Kessler investigates the largely unexplored side of antiaging what it takes to be younger not just look younger Guided by both intense curiousity and healthy skepticism a sense of adventure and a sense of humor she investigates America’s youth obse. This is the first book by Lauren Kessler I ve read Kessler spends a year trying to turn back time cue Cher or don t as it s all auto tune and I can t take it I can relate At 41 I am definitely interested in staying healthy and active I am not interested in living into my golden years if they are going to be full of illness and someone else wiping me I know I can t predict the future but there are things I CAN control now to make my later years robust As of yet I haven t had to worry about the looking older part as I have a baby face and look much younger than I am I am not sure what I will do when that does happen but it s nice to know what the options are even if I never use themKessler explores everything from botox to mitochondrial testing from supplements to VO2 output It s a lot of research and science but written in an accessible way What it comes down to is You need to exercise Study after study after study shows that one way to stay young is exercising And one of the best barometers of your health is your blood pressure The farther apart the systolic and diastolic numbers are the your arteries are agingThe health of your aging body is about 30% genetics and 70% environment The best news is that it doesn t matter if you are middle aged and just now figuring out that you need to take care of your body you can start today and it will make a differenceThere is so much good information in here it would be impossible for me to share everything But here are some highlights What I am interested in what I powerfully and passionately want is to be all those good
