Book Description

March 7 2011

A complete program for a rich, rewarding and healthy mid-lifestyle. Healthy eating combined with a realistic exercise plan is key to maintaining optimal health and avoiding chronic illnesses like heart disease and diabetes. The authors, a chef and an MD -- and both former Olympians -- join forces to provide a tailored mid-life plan for embarking on a solid path to good health and well-being -- and, most important, for staying on track. Start Fresh! Provides the basic tools to assess health and fitness levels, to set practical and realistic goals, and to create a personal exercise model. With this plan in place, the authors add a careful selection of nutritious and easy-to-prepare recipes that complement the exercise program and lead to the sustainable fitness and good health that every mid-lifer wants and needs. Special sections in the book include a HealthSpan fitness guide and a HealthSpan 10 km power walk program. There is also a section on the new staples -- for pantry, fridge and freezer. Some of the tasty recipes are: Italian mozzarella and fennel salad Spanish almond tart with orange and date compote Sangria blanca. Getting fit and staying healthy is hard work and requires a solid program. Staying with that program really pays off with benefits that will last a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic recipes & advise April 2 2009
I found this book very helpful with great incentive ideas, for fitness, and eating healthy delicious meals.
I have tried several of the recipes, favorites being the Halibut Tuscan Style , Bulgar Rice Pilaf, Banana Ice with Berry Puree, Eggs with Quick Ratatouille. I look foreward to trying ALL the recipes.
I found this to be an inspiring book that leaves you motivated to cook healthy, and focus on a healthier lifestyle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Padded with Recipes June 13 2008
By Vina
Dr. Clement's one third of the book is informative and very helpful. Getting fit after midlife was a challenge for me because of a long period of grief and illness and inactivity. Dr. Clement explains how to ease yourself into fitness without getting injured or discouraged. He explains ideal weights, goals, and exercise programs for various body types and personal preferences.
The Food part of the book could have reduced to four very helpful pages. This two thirds is yet another recipe book.
The book could have cost two thirds less and been taken up two thirds less space, but it is worth purchasing for the Fitness portion of it. The Fitness portion gets 4 1/2 stars. The recipe portion gets 1 star.
