Sexy @ Sixty: Making aging a happy, healthy experience
Sexy @ Sixty
Author: Namita Jain
Publishers: Westland Ltd
Would you like to be somber and cranky or suave and sexy as you age? If it’s the latter that finds your favour, Namita Jain’s Sexy @ Sixty will make for happy reading.
Namita’s book serves as a beacon of light for a person who’s rushing through middle age with not a thought about his health till he’s reached the threshold of old age.
The nutrition expert talks of how issues ranging from menopause to prostate and osteoporosis to diabetes can be tackled with a correct eating plan, exercise and a positive attitude.
Get up and start moving – Namita vouches by this health mantra while she dwells on why it is important to be active to feel young at heart. And, to show you how active you can get on any average day, Namita lists the calories you can burn while performing your chores.
Namita moves deftly from stress management techniques to skin care routines and uses nutrition tables, illustrated exercises and checklists to keep track of your progress at just the right places to highlight her explanation.
‘Fasttrack’ sections that sum up entire chapters and ‘Fight plans’ brimming with doable tips are Namita’s ways of telling us in so many ways what we would all like to hear – that it is possible to age with good health and grace.
Smart eating tips from a patient, healthy substitute recipes and intelligent graphics demonstrating health facts that reach out like no advice ever could are all woven subtly into the content.
Hema Malini endorses the book with a foreword and vouches by the fact that ‘the sixties are an exciting place to be’.
