Book #3: Younger Next Year – Live Strong, Fit and Sexy – Until You’re 80 and Beyond by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge, M.D.

This book is written by one of the country’s most prominent internists, Dr. Henry “Harry” Lodge and a star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley. The book shows you how to turn back your biologic clock – how to put off 70 percent of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50 percent of serious illness and injury.

The key to the program as described in book is found in Harry’s rules:

  • Exercise 6 days a week.
  • Don’t eat crap.
  • Connect and commit to others.

There are seven rules altogether, based on the latest findings in self-physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work – and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today for example, than he did 20 years ago) gives the just-as-essential motivation. The book claims that both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to 10 years, then continue to live with new-found vitality and pleasure deep into their eighties and beyond.

Book #4: Life Plan: How Any Can Achieve Lasting Health, Great Sex, and a Stronger, Leaner Body by Jeffrey S. Life, M.D., Ph.D.

This book outlines a program for men, combining exercise, nutrition, vitamins and hormones, proven to halt and even reverse the aging process.

In 1998, when Dr. Life was 60 years old and a stereotype of the aging man: he was overweight with a noticeable gut and little muscle tone. His low libido was ruining his self-esteem. He felt tired all the time, yet no amount of sleep made him feel well-rested. It wasn’t until a cardiologist read him the riot act that he began to make critical diet and

lifestyle adjustments that led him to look and feel younger than ever. More importantly, he has been able to maintain his physique and his health more than 14 years later. In this book, Dr. Life demonstrates how you too can enjoy an active, clear-headed, sexually satisfying, vigorous, and healthful life, while avoiding late onset diabetes, heart diseases and other common illnesses and complaints of aging. Dr. Life claims that “any man can master – The Life Plan – no matter what shape he may be in. It offers:

  • A multiple disciplinary exercise plan designed to improve heart health and increase muscle mass.
  • A delicious, easy to follow diet, including rules for dining out and recipes.
  • A complete guide to nutrient supplements that can help men stop – and possibly reverse – the aging process.
  • An honest assessment of male hormone replacements therapies based on the most up-to-date research.
  • Advice for getting the best possible care from your doctor.

The Life Plan delivers the keys to a fitter body, a stronger immune system and a richer, fuller life for any man seeking to makeover his body and turn back the clock.

Book #5: Gorilla Mindset: How to Control Your Thoughts and Emotions to Live Life on Your Terms by Mike Cernovich.

Gorilla Mindset attempts to teach you how to take control of your thoughts and emotions rather than feed you lies and feel-good nonsense. It attempts to teach you how to live life on your own terms.

The author, Mike Cernovich, wrote Gorilla Mindset with men in mind, but many women are catching on, as they also want to live a more powerful life. By applying Gorilla Mindset to your life, it is likely you will improve your health and fitness, earn more money and have stronger relationships, at least according to the author. Your thinking will become clear, your posture will improve, you will have more focus and you will gain more respect from those around you.

Each chapter contains techniques, mindset shifts and habits that can be applied to your life and includes self-talk, frame, focus, state/mood, mindfulness, body language and posture.

The author suggests that improving your self-talk will improve your state or mood. He shows how you frame challenges in your life with the manner of language – or self-talk – you use. Getting in the moment improves your self-talk, just as your self-talk helps you get into the moment.
