Book Description

Jan. 1 2013
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!

"Follow this plan - it works!" says Dr. Mehmet Oz, Professor and Vice-chair of Surgery, NYP-Columbia Medical Center, and Host of The Dr. Oz Show.

Look younger, stay slimmer, feel sexier...no matter what your age! This revolutionary plan to reverse the signs of aging kicks off with a 7-day Jumpstart plan offering all the tools you need to start your total rejuvenation. Then you'll follow the 7-week, science-based program with a holistic approach to looking and feeling younger. Its 7 age erasers cover every base with special regimens for skin care, makeup, hair care, nutrition and diet, fitness, brain fitness, and emotional health. With this program you can "de-age" your skin, use makeup and hair smarts to get a youthful look, rehab your diet and exercise habits to lower your risk of age-related diseases and to lose weight, learn to sharpen your mind, and nurture your emotional health. You'll be surprised at how much you can turn back the clock on your own-without stepping near a plastic surgeon's office, or spending a fortune on expensive beauty products.

The scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute rigorously tested more than 400 beauty products and conducted more than 5,000 lab tests over the course of two years to find the anti-aging products that really work. Then ten test panelists went on the plan. The life-transforming results? One woman lost 12 pounds, another lost an amazing 10 inches from around her waist, and a third restored the glow and smoothness of her skin-improvements that were confirmed by scientific testing. Yet another tester emerged looking more glamorous than she'd looked since she first had kids. As one of the testers said, "There are a lot of diet and exercise programs out there on the market. And there are a lot of beauty tips you can get, but '7 Years Younger' has taken all of those things and put them into a one stop shopping experience for your overall beauty and health and mindset."

"What's great about the program," says Good Housekeeping editor in chief Rosemary Ellis, "is that you can treat it like a tool kit. You can pick and choose which elements of the program you want to focus on."

2.0 out of 5 stars Worst book ever Feb. 28 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I do not usually buy books in this category, but I saw this on Dr Oz show and it seemed to be so interesting . I cannot imagine if Dr Oz had read this book he would endorse it. There is nothing in this book that is new or interesting. The book is nothing more than a promotion for certain beauty products . I was very disappointed in this book. Don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Information, Poor Organization, Difficult Plan to Follow Jan. 5 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Recently, I ordered the book 7 Years Younger from the editors of Good Housekeeping. This was advertised as "The Revolutionary 7-Week Anti-Aging Plan" and endorsed by Dr. Oz. I was very excited to read through the information.

The book was broken down into seven categories, Skin Care, Beauty, Hair Care, Weight Loss, Exercise, Brain Fitness and De-Stressing. The categories were full of helpful hints on how to make improvements in each area. Unfortunately, the organization of information in the book was very difficult to follow. The authors offered suggestions of products that had their seal of approval but there was not enough information to understand how the product should be used and why one product was better than another except for the preference of people who followed the program.

The second-half of the book is the seven week plan, that is really an eight week plan. The first week is called Jump Start. It is designed to help you make changes in each of the seven areas gradually. On day one you start with following a prescribed meal plan, beginning a skin care regimen and adopting strategies for getting better sleep. As you go through each day in the Jump Start phase you add additional tasks to your daily routine. By the end of the week you are incorporating daily tasks for exercise, eating healthy, skin care, sleep-well strategies, makeup, meditation and deep breathing, hair care, and memory tricks. The rest of the plan builds on the Jump Start week and adds more activities to each of the seven areas that are designed to help you look and feel 7 Years Younger.

I love the concepts presented in this book. I think in systems, so breaking down how to take care of yourself into seven segments makes undertaking change more manageable. However, I found this book very difficult to read. Each day or week of the plan gave information on what to "add" to what you were already doing but they did not go back and recap everything at the end of the process. There was no final checklist or time and cost estimates of what it takes to implement this plan successfully.

In order to make a final decision about the book, I spent the time to create a spreadsheet with a checklist for each section . I also made a list of the products needed to follow the plan based on the recommendations in the book. The cost to do this plan was over $500 and the exercise portion alone, at the end of seven weeks, was about an hour and a half per day. This did not seem penny wise or sustainable for the average woman.

7 Years Younger has many good ideas, but overall, I would not recommend this book if you are looking for a step-by-step plan to help you make changes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening, Encouraging, Motivating Jan. 1 2013
By Carolyn Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The name America trusts, Good Housekeeping, brings us a seven-week plan to look and feel better in 7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Anti-Aging Plan. I'll say it right up front: I love this book. It's a fantastic resource of information that offers priceless advice, tips, and insider information. It's refreshing to read recommendations on beauty products without the vested-interest sales hype. Here, we get the truth about how much improvement is realistic for a given treatment or product, as well as what is a waste of money.

This 390-page guide was put together by a squad of experts, including Good Housekeeping's Birnur K. Aral, Ph.D. In addition, regular women--not models--tried out the plan. These ladies are featured in colored before-and-after photographs along with their candid comments about what worked for them.

Each week of the plan covers one area for looking and feeling younger, so that we're not bombarded with total change all at once.

In the first week, we reclaim beautiful skin. This chapter covers such topics as:
* Are serums a waste of money?
* How to reduce dark spots, white spots, and red blotches.
* Eliminate adult acne.
* Is Botox worth a shot?
* Charts for various skin types, including products that tested best and why.

The week of Makeup Makeover is a revelation. What?! I shouldn't match my foundation to my skin? The editors explain why this old rule doesn't hold up; and how to select a shade that won't leave the complexion looking pasty, blotchy, or ashy.

The next week is all about healthy hair: how to recapture gloss, bounce and body. It also contains professional tips for getting perfect at-home color for those who want to save money.

No beauty book would be complete without including a section on diet and exercise. Good, common-sense, no diet-product solicitations. Even if you already have a good knowledge of healthy eating, you'll find this segment inspiring. My favorite part in this section is "Binge Busters: 16 Delicious Ways to Satisfy Your Cravings."

Last is Brain Boosters, because keeping our brain functioning is essential to enjoying life to the end of our days. The latest scientific studies offer lots of hope. "Brain researchers used to believe that everyone lost up to 30 percent of their neurons as they aged, but now it looks as if you not only hold on to most of those neurons, but can make new, `smarter' ones if you try. It's never too late to start engaging your brain," says Gary Small, M.D., director of the UCLA Center of Aging (p. 214). Included are seven top moves to train your brain younger.

Additionally, the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging, ongoing since 1959, has determined that disease is not a part of aging.

I found this book to be enlightening, encouraging, and motivating. With this plan, we are empowered to take charge of how we look and feel, rather than be victims of Father Time. Highly recommended for women, age 35-and up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jumpstart your life based on real research and look fabulous in 7 weeks ... Jan. 1 2013
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
"You look fabulous!" Ah, three memorable words that I'll never forget. I've heard them a few times and want to hear them again. And again, and again ... the natural way. I'll never forget the time I had lunch with someone who looked like she was about to pop from one too many facelifts. She could have followed many of the hints in this book, including "Facelift on a Plate" and looked radiant instead of radical. There are tips and suggestions galore in this book that draw "on the latest breakthroughs in anti-aging research as well as the advice of top experts in skin care, cosmetics, hair care, nutrition and diet, exercise, and emotional health."

Have you ever bought a book that claimed you'd lose twenty pounds, firm up, and look gorgeous in a month? You probably have and that book is probably sitting unsold at your library sale with a dozen duplicates. I for one am more inclined to go with a book that has a bit of research behind it. Good solid research is a big draw. Good Housekeeping Research Institute put "everything from eye creams and deep conditioners to wrinkle serums and teeth whiteners through scientific tests that reveal which products really work." No infomercial here, just the facts ... the products and how to use them.

No hypothesis or windbag treatise on how you could look "7 Years Younger" in this book. The Good Housekeeping "Dream Team" worked with a select group of women and together they "helped fine-tune this program to suit real women's needs." And you'll see before and after photographs of these women and get to read about their pledges, plans, and goals. Tessa Jean, who looks fabulous by the way, claims "Agelessness is not just something that comes from random changes. You have to take a holistic approach." She somehow found it in this plan and incorporated it into her life.

Fern Richter claims that "The computer told me that I had gone from 12 wrinkles on my face to five." FYI, I've had this book for more than seven weeks, courtesy of the publisher, and I've adapted some of the things to my needs and definitely look better. A lot better. I started my exercise program at that time and my overall energy boost was incredible. My shuffle turned into a strong, confident walk. There are many interesting recipes from which I garnered several useful hints. There are charts, "Ask the Expert" sections, and numerous informative sidebars that give 7YY Bonus Tips. For example one chart tells you how to tell the difference between a whole grain and a refined one. Yet another two-page spread gives you "Your Look-Younger Hair Repair Kit."

This book is not for everyone. Please keep in mind that you're looking at a lifestyle change. Are you ready? If so when you open this book you'll be taking a "7 Years Younger Pledge." You'll need support, but most of all, you'll need to want to look younger and you will. The pictures of the women who took that pledge are in this book and they all, to the letter, look fabulously happy with themselves. No sense in talking about it, I'm going to give you the contents and a few hints at what you'll see in the book. Good luck on your new life and Happy New Year! The 7-day jumpstart and 7-week plan in this book will change your life.

2.0 out of 5 stars A lot of common sense Jan. 7 2013
By LVS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you are someone that is a big reader of health/beauty magazines for a while, I really don't think you will find anything new here. This book is essentially a refinement of numerous articles on health, beauty & fitness rolled together into one "7 week plan." Most of it was information you may have already assimilated in one source or another.

There has been quite a strong campaign behind this book, so I felt compelled to review it b/c to me it underdelivers on many levels. First, (of course) the campaign really touted the weight loss people will experience with this plan. But then you see the real case studies in the book and really only 1 or 2 lost a notable amount of weight (12 lbs was the most lost in 7 weeks, most lost 1-4 lbs). To me that's not a "successful" weight loss plan so the book should not be positioned that way. While my goals were not weight loss in purchasing this, I do feel its misleading for the many readers who likely are buying it for this reason.

Among the 7 sections is Skin care, hair care, make-up, fitness. some comments on each follow.

Skin care section. Lots of common sense here people! wash your face (don't sleep in your makeup!), exfoliate, wear sunscreen, moisturize, use anti-aging treatments.

Hair care - seriously? I really hope there aren't people out there who don't know they should use special shampoo/conditioner for their color treated hair and that everyone benefits from an occasional deep conditioning mask (yes, they make those!). Brush it once in a while too - you will be getting NON-STOP COMPLIMENTS!

Make-up section - an extensive section on make-up application and tips to make you look younger. As a woman, if you are still clueless about makeup and its application by the time you are old enough to care about looking older, you are probably not someone who would actually care much about looking older, and therefore would not be buying this book! My point is, it's not a stretch to think the vast majority of readers have likely been wearing makeup (and logically staying current on it) for years by now and will benefit very little from the "Makeup 101" provided here.

The fitness/exercise section - ohhh, now I understand why no one was losing weight! These very basic exercises are an introduction for someone who is A) brand new to fitness and/or B) leading a very sedentary lifestyle.

In conclusion, this book is written as if a woman just woke up at mid-30 or later and suddenly decided she needs to take care of herself (and learn how!). Therefore the 7-week plan is focused around showing someone who is new to all these things how to get started. This theory is flawed because in my estimation the audience for this book is probably well versed in the 7 categories outlined and will glean very little new advice, maybe some new products to try.

Needless to say my copy got sent back. I realize some of my comments may be considered flip/sarcastic, but I do hope some find my feedback useful!

1.0 out of 5 stars 7 Years Younger Jan. 28 2013
By C. Bryant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I can't believe i'm saying this about a Good Housekeeping product but here goes...... After preordering and waiting months for this book to be published I am VERY disappointed. I have been reading informative magazine articles, reviews and emails from GH concerning this book for several months and thought it would be fantastic. It was a total waste of money. The book is wordy, repetitive, boring and offers no new information. I am almost finished reading the book and still have not found anything I haven't read in magazines or on the Internet. If you live in a bubble and don't read or watch TV you might find this book helpful. If you try to keep up on the latest information to keep your body and skin healthy, don't waste your money. You've heard it all before in a more interesting way. Sorry GH this is the first negative thing I've had to say about you or your publications in over fifty years.
