Book Description

19 Dec 2011
Eat Yourself Young is a practical guide to help you look, feel and live younger. Forget Botox, fillers and face-lifts - the quickest and most effective way to take years off your looks is simply by changing what you eat. On the Eat Yourself Young programme, you'll quickly lose weight and feel lighter, more energetic and less stressed. Your skin will improve, you'll sleep better. But most importantly, you'll start to look and feel younger - it's a real high when you suddenly realise it's not your age that's making you feel old, it's your food. The book kicks off with an exploration of the five most ageing body processes - you can't avoid them, but Elizabeth shows you how to minimize their impact using good food choices. Next, she outlines the five food types that are most ageing, and then the five superfood age-busters that research shows have a 'youthing' effect. The programme itself starts with a deep-cleansing detox to refuel the body; followed by Elizabeth's Youthing Eating Plan, with over 60 delicious, healthy recipes, plus strategies and tips to help you sustain progress. Two weeks into the Eat Yourself Young programme, you'll notice that you feel better; within a month you'll be full of energy; within three months you'll look five years younger - and within a year, well, that's up to you. This programme will not only change your body. It will change your outlook and your life. Welcome to a younger you.

Product Description


Take years off your looks by changing what you eat. --The Bookseller, October 14, 2011

'There's a good reason a string of celebrities have naturopath, dietitian and author Elizabeth Peyton-Jones on speed dial. Her no-nonsense approach to nutrition gets results without deprivation. There's no calorie counting or banning of food groups - just wholesome, nutritious advice to nourish your body from the inside out. Her new book reveals how to wind back the clock simply by tweaking your diet. I liked the details, such as the symptom chart to track your progress, the larder list of anti-ageing staples and the quirky illustrations filling each page. A fab foodie read!' --Women's Fitness, January 2013

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing very new here 25 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a detox guide in a slighty new guise - the emphasis being on preventing ageing rather than weight loss. It's theme is "youthing" which I personally found a cringeworthy word. The author works with celebrities and models according to the jacket blurb and there are endorsements from Thandi Newton and Joanna Lumley. There is some good content in the opening chapters, which explain the main reasons why we age and why it is not inevitable: hormonal imbalance, inflammation, oxidation etc. There are some interesting key foods recommended, such as beetroot, which I must admit I did not realise was potentially a "superfood". The book then moves into a stringent two week detox programme that could be found in similar form in many other books that have been written on the subject. Finally there is the Eat Yourself Young (EYY) maintenance programme or "diet for life" which is pretty stringent in itself. If you cannot imagine in the long term giving up meat, dairy, sugar, wheat flour and salt completely or confining alcohol to one drink a week, then this is probably not for you. And in these busy times, can you, like, presumably, Thandi and Joanna, commit to juicing every day, cooking buckwheat pancakes or baked apples for breakfast or preparing your packed lunch every day? If you can, then this might be the book for you. Even if you cannot, then there are some useful ideas that you could adopt. However, overall this has all been done before and in some notable cases done better. If you are really serious about radically changing your lifestyle, I recommend Age Power by Lesley Kenton as being far more authoritative on the subject. It makes this book look a little slight,albeit pretty.

By Paolo Sammut VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a well written guide to detoxing yourself. Please be aware that it is not a recipe book (although it does contain some recipes) but rather will teach you about the foods you eat and the effects that it has on your body.

The book begins with a questionnaire to help you work out what type of body type you have. It then launches into a description of the body processes which age us then moves on to describe the types of foods which age us. Then, taking a positive note we then get to see the foods which counter aging.

The core of the book however is the detox plan. This includes lists of a number of foods and its effect - anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hormonal balancing, digestive, alkaline. The plan also gives advise which is also generally important such as the need to drink lots of water and to be aware of mood changes whilst detoxing. Some words of advice I am not sure how to take seriously, such as being aware that pots with plastic handles can emit fumes when cooking or to avoid plastic utensils to avoid contaminates leaching into the food. I am not sure how likely this but am willing to give the author the benefit of the doubt here.

Finally the book gives a number of quick and easy recipes.

The book is well presented with good use of colour to highlight different things and lots of tables to summarise and present information. I feel sure that anyone thinking of detoxing will find lots of value in this book. Recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice recipes with worrying science 11 April 2012
By Ms. R. L. A. Amelan VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I read this book through, I felt a great feeling of disquiet. It is a colourful and attractive looking volume and I have absolutely no problems with the recipe section. Some of these look delicious and simple, and I might even try them myself as they appear quick, easy and with a reasonable balance of ingredients.

Elizabeth Peyton-Jones, however, is trying to offer much more, for the title is "Eat Yourself Young" and this is a quite a claim. It is true that a balanced diet can assist in maintaining good health and there is reasonable evidence based research to suggest that eating your greens and fruit will assist greatly in this. The author, however, states much more - and does so without quoting the studies to back up her hypotheses. The fact that there is no bibliography so that we can read further and decide matters for ourselves is also concerning.

She suggests that the reader changes their diet to combat the five anti-ageing processes, namely, eliminative slowdown, inflammation, oxidation, acidification and hormonal imbalance. This involves an evaluation of current symptoms, a detox diet and the EYY eating plan. Apparently, you will feel better by following this - well, it does rather depend, I suspect, on how you were before, as you certainly will be taking your fruit and veg in copious quantities. Ms Peyton-Jones also makes some quite unequivocal statements to back up her dietary ideas and these worry me hugely.

When I received this book, I scanned it and then consulted a number of friends who work in a variety of scientific fields to assist in evaluating the text. We looked at, for example, oxidation. Yes, they said, the facts are there but there is an overplay when it comes to the effect of oxidative stress on DNA.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm not convinced 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wanted to like this book. I wanted to believe the words Elizabeth Peyton-Jones wrote. Frankly though, as a scientist by profession, most of what she spouts is utter unresearched and untrue rubbish. Take it with a massive pinch of something salty which isn't so bad for you.
