About the Book

Many people are now living to see their one-hundredth birthday. To help more people reach that longevity, board-certified internist Blair Beebe, M.D. and culinary expert Sue Beebe review key factors concerning prevention of the main causes of early disability and death, like heart disease, strokes, and diabetes. They explain the evidence about weight control and disease prevention, and present a sensible action plan that includes recipes for better nutrition and basic information about exercise.

The Hundred-Year Diet explains which specific health recommendations will lead to effective weight control and enhance good health, with measurable results confirmed in clinical trials. The hundred-year diet strives to build good health habits that last. Beebe and Beebe provide practical guidelines showing how to reach and maintain an ideal weight, improve blood cholesterol levels, avoid high blood pressure, participate in vigorous daily exercise and feel more salutary.

For anyone willing to give up butter, fatty meat, french fries, and other high-calorie, fat-loaded foods, the hundred-year diet can open a new world of international cuisine to help one enjoy a long and vigorous life. Included are more than seventy-five delicious low-calorie recipes incorporating the best of Mediterranean, Southwestern, and Asian cuisines.
