Maybe you don't want to live to 100, but you'll surely want every day you do live to be a healthy one. The average adult life expectancy in the UK is now 84. However, many people will not live to see their 80s at all because of poor lifestyle choices, and even for those that do, a significant number will see well over a decade at the end of their lives spoiled by pain, immobility and disabling illness. The good news is you can change both how long you live and how well you live. This book explains how. Discover the five simple lifestyle changes that can add significant, enjoyable extra years to your life. Find out the best methods to make each of them an effortless habit. Understand which will give you the biggest result for the least bother (if you're that kind of person!) Healthy years are not 'all in your genes'. You may have been dealt a particular hand of cards but the aces are in the pack and your life could be transformed by knowing what and where they are.
