Dr Kris Verburgh is a leading medical doctor and scientist in the field of biogerontology (the science of the ageing process). He wrote his first science book at the age of 16, and now aged 27 he is one of the youngest and most prolific science writers in the world. He is the medical director of HEALES (the Healthy Life Extension Society), a non-profit organisation advocating research into healthy ageing, and a speaker for several leading international speaker bureaus. The Food Hourglass is a phenomenal international bestseller and has firmly established Dr Kris Verbugh at the forefront of ageing research.
Stay younger for longer and get the body you've always dreamed of. Join the health revolution taking the world by storm! Did you know that: * Most diets are unhealthy * Antioxidants don't slow down ageing * White tea reduces wrinkles and is good for heart and blood vessels * Walnuts can drastically cut your risk of a heart attack * Milk products aren't that healthy * A daily fruit and vegetable juice reduces the risk of Alzheimer's * Lots of different kinds of fats actually cut down your risk of a heart attack The Food Hourglass is a revolutionary new look at how food influences the way we age. Based on the latest scientific discoveries about nutrition and the ageing process, The Food Hourglass shows you how to slow down the signs of ageing through what you eat, and lose weight in the process. The Food Hourglass has been an international number 1 bestseller since release, having sold over 250,000 copies in one year in the Netherlands alone. Written and developed by Dr Kris Verburgh, this book addresses health and weight loss from a unique new angle, namely 'biogerontology' (the science of the ageing process), and introduces a revolutionary new food model, the food hourglass. Say goodbye the outdated food plate and food pyramid forever. The hourglass will show you how to immediately identify what is healthy and unhealthy food, and how to replace unhealthy foods with alternatives. The hourglass helps you lose weight, slow down the ageing process and reduce the risk of age-related diseases. Never before has such a food model been developed. The Food Hourglass isn't a diet - so it's easy to start and simple to continue. Just begin eating the right food at the right time to see a healthier, younger-looking you.
We all know that we age - but do you know exactly how, and why? And do you wonder what you can do - whatever your age - to slow the process so you can live well, for longer? This book comprehensively answers these questions. Medical doctor and polymath scientist Kris Verburgh illuminates the biological mechanisms that make our bodies susceptible to heart attacks, strokes, dementia, diabetes, and other aging - related diseases. We learn about the crucial role of poorly functioning mitochondria, shortened telomeres, proteins and carbohydrates, and more. Having explained the aging process at work, Dr. Verburgh then provides the tools we need to slow it down: his scientifically backed Longevity Staircase. This simple yet innovative step- by-step method offers better health and a longer life span through nutrition - currently our best defense in the fight against aging and disease. And with each passing day, advances in biotechnology - once the stuff of science fiction - are emerging as part of the longevity code. Dr. Verburgh discusses how new types of vaccines, mitochondrial DNA, CRISPR proteins, and stem cells may help us slow and even reverse aging - now and in the future.
