Amazon Review

Research has shown that 70 per cent of the signs of ageing are determined by your lifestyle. So, if you overload your body with toxins from fags, booze and caffeine and never see daylight it will show not only in your face, but all over your body. Dr Atkins, he of the New Diet Revolution, reckons he might just have the answer to your prayers. In Dr Atkins Age-defying Diet Revolution, the good doctor explains the basics of his programme, which involves a healthy dose of diet advice and vita-nutrient supplementation to help you beat the risk factors of growing old disgracefully.

From what different symptoms and tests can tell you about the state of your health and your body's "real" age, to how to select the most successful diet for you and how to use antioxidants to their best age-defying advantage, Dr Atkins examines specific signs of ageing, the causes and how to deal with them with diet, nutrition and natural medicines.

This is certainly not a regime for the faint hearted--the process of ageing is as complicated as the process of reversing the signs--but anyone who has spotted those first tell-tale signs should take a look. Be warned, if it's just ridding yourself of the wrinkles that concerns you then this is perhaps not really what you need. Dr Atkins Age-defying Diet Revolution is serious stuff, taking an holistic approach to body maintenance that some might find just a little too tough. However, if you want to feel good, look good and live a whole lot longer then this could well be the book you have been waiting for. --Susan Harrison

3.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a read 7 Sep 2000
By A Customer
With this book Dr Atkins attempts to show readers how to adjust their diets to try and defy the ageing process. Dr Atkins has his own food supplement company which he strongly advocates, so be warned not only does this programme involve abstaining from everyday things like alcohol, cigarettes and caffeine but it also advises taking various products which of course Dr Atkins supplement company produces. Don't get me wrong the good Doctor does have some very interesting ideas and useful advice but after reading this book a person has to decide if the possible results are worth the major lifestyle changes that it involves. This book is full of very interesting and useful information but if it will help to halt the ageing process, only time will tell!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really interesting, SCIENCE-based diet 2 Sep 2013
There's a ton of information in all Dr Atkins' books, and this is no exception. Well-established and tested research data backs up all his assertions, and the bio-mechanics are explained, which all helps the credibility of the advice. The cover exhorts readers to 'Feel Great, Live Longer'; after 3 months of taking much advice from this book, I do feel great (though it feels so empowering to take positive control of your diet anyway, maybe it's just psychosomatic), but I'll have to keep my fingers crossed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Never got to grips with this one! 9 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm 78 and I hadn't got time to keep ploughing through this book - so I defied age by playing golf again. I use the old fashioned Atkins diet sometimes, it works for me and I get to eat things my wife has on her forbidden list. I'll stick to it.

I have found the Age Defying Diet book really good. I have most of Dr Atkins books on his method of eating and preparing food. It takes time to learn, for anyone who has had numerous life style illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome, overweight, heart conditions,and such like, Dr Atkin's method is invaluable. I've had 20 yrs of problems and I'm cured now on this method. So his age defying diet will work.
