New Year, New You: Tips from the Younger Next Year Authors

Wed, 01 Jan 2020

“One long, exuberant New Year’s resolution,” says the New York Times.

It’s been fifteen years since the original publication of the revolutionary Younger Next Year®, and scientific research continues to show that this program keeps people feeling young until 80 and beyond! Written by the late Henry S. Lodge, MD, who was one of the country’s most prominent internists, and his star patient Chris Crowley, who followed Harry’s program and found it so effective he wanted to share it with the world, these books have had a profound effect on an entire generation.

Now, Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women have been updated by brain surgeon Allan J. Hamilton, MD and Chris Crowley. We're here to share some of the most life-changing tips that made the first editions so influential in the first place. Read on for "Harry's Rules" to turn back the biological clock, prevent 70 percent of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance), eliminate 50 percent of serious illness and injury, and become 10 percent smarter.

Harry's Rules

  1. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.
  2. Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life.
  3. Do serious strength training, with weights, two days a week for the rest of your life.
  4. Spend less than you make: Make a plan for retirement before you retire.
  5. Quit eating crap! Refined carbohydrates are killing you.
  6. Care. Mental and emotional choices have just as much impact as physical choices.
  7. Connect and commit. Physical, social contact counteracts the effects of stress hormones.
