Fitness and Nutrition for an Independent Future.
'AgeFit' is an easy-to-read and comprehensive reference on healthy ageing. Written by a team of nutrition and fitness experts including one of Australia's leading nutritionists, Dr Mark Wahlqvist, it provides the latest findings on how diet and exercise are crucial to good health in later life.
Australia is an ageing society, but with rapid advancements in science and technology and recent research on nutrition and exercise being very healthy in later life is now an achievable goal. Today, more than any other time in history, we have the knowledge and means to extend the length of our lives and, more importantly, to ensure quality of life.
Our mental, social, physical and nutritional states provide the solid foundation to healthy ageing and it is these building blocks that allow us to benefit fully from our later lives, rather than dreading the ageing process.
'AgeFit' is an essential handbook that illustrates how it is possible to slow down the ageing process - with basic, regular exercise and a nutritious, varied diet, life can be healthy and happy in your 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond.
