Want to continue to crush well into your 80s? Here’s how.
I recently spent a few weeks immersed in Fast After 50, along with a few other books on the topic, including Margaret Webb’s Older, Faster, Stronger, Lee Bergquist’s Second Wind, and Bill Gifford’s excellent and entertaining Spring Chicken. My interest was both professional and personal. I was staring down the gun barrel at 50, the ominous milestone, just a year and change away. Should I prepare to surrender to backgammon and bocce, or was there still hope for my lifelong addiction to biking, skiing, climbing, and other outdoor activities and races?
While all the books were informative, and even inspirational, chronicling many aging athletes who still excelled at their respective sports, Friel’s was the only one dedicated to mapping out a plan of action. A few years ago, Friel, 71, author of the classic Training Bible series and one of the most respected figures in endurance coaching, noticed that his own power on the bike was fading. His training group, which varied from young to old, routinely started dropping him on climbs, which had been rare in the past. Compelled to see if science offered any solutions, he dove into the research literature, which was limited but enlightening. Were there ways to beat time, the ultimate foe?
Scientists are becoming increasingly certain that all the stuff we put through our digestive system is making a major impact on our state of mind.
The basic gist: There's a keen physiological link between the brain and digestive system. Here's how Dr. Helene M. Savignac, an expert in neuropsychology, cognitive, and behavioral science, explains it:
“Scientists are now revealing that there is a strong link between what happens in the gut and the brain. The bacteria that reside in the gut appear to play an important role and are able to communicate with the central nervous system notably through neural, endocrine, and immune pathways. By influencing the balance and types of bacteria present, studies show that it may be possible to lower stress, [and] affect cognition/brain processes and mood.”
Are you protecting your immune system? Did you know that your immune system is the seat of your health? The heath of your gut is just as important as the health of all your other organs including your brain. When your GI tract is compromised, it places a tremendous toll on your organs and your immune system goes on a rampage causing numerous health problems, physical, mental, emotional.
You now can see that keeping your immune system strong and vibrant is key to your good health. You also know that what's on the end of your fork affects how you feel and perform Your lifestyle habits, whether you're active or sedentary, how much sleep you get, and your toxic exposure all play a huge role in keeping you healthy and fit.
Health Tips: Consume a varied organic as much as possible, real whole plant based food regimen. Reduce, reduce, reduce both sugary and processed non food consumption. Add more raw, sprouted, and fermented foods to your meals because these foods are beneficial for your gut health. Take a high quality probiotic too.
Make sure your taking vitamin D, B complex vitamins, especially B-12, folate (B-9), and B-6. Eat dark leafy greens every day. It's easy when you drink a green smoothie. These are blended drinks which are easier for your body to digest. Try adding one blended drink/meal a day and see how much better you feel. Green juices are also good for your gut health. If you purchase, make sure there's no added sugar. And stay hydrated by drinking filtered water and consuming high water content produce.

Suppose you’re confined to a nursing home. You’re elderly, you’ve lost much of your mobility, and your faculties are deteriorating. Along comes a Harvard University social psychology professor named Ellen Langer who takes you away on a retreat, where everything is transformed into the way it looked and felt when you were 25. Radios with vacuum tubes play rockabilly and Perry Como, a hardcover copy of Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger sits on a Danish modern coffee table (the movie won’t be released for several years yet), the clothing is au courant for 1959, and the conversation covers recent events like Fidel Castro’s invasion of Havana. The staff treat you like you’re in the prime of physical health, making you carry your own suitcases upstairs even if you haven’t recently lifted anything nearly that heavy. You know, at some level, that this is all a fictional recreation. But as it comes alive around you, you find yourself paying attention to your environment in ways you haven’t done in years.

Met time management red je het in ieder geval niet meer,” zegt Crabbe, wandelend over de luchthaven. Verwijzend naar het beroemde boek van efficiencygoeroe David Allen, „Het gaat niet langer om getting things done, maar om not getting it all done.”
