Recommended Reading:

. . . This is not a “diet book.” Rather it advocates lifestyle choices that the authors believe will promote healthy
aging. The target audience is women [and men] over the age of 50 who want to do all they can to minimize the decline in health and functional status that often accompanies aging in the U.S. The authors emphatically state that weight loss is not the goal. The book covers a wide range of topics from social connectedness, relationships among older people, medical conditions associated with aging, sexuality, alcohol, and finding purpose in later life . . .
