 About the Book 

Completely rational, no nonsense coaching from an informed coachQuite thankfully there are a number of excellent books on physical fitness available for the public to purchase, study, and implement as we all become more aware of the dangerous rise in obesity due not only to improper eating habits of processed food - whether from fast food chains or from the aisles of grocery stores (and those include the health food stores!) - and our sedentary life styles in this age of computer based work situations and our `Im too tired to do a workout attitude in which we are all drowning. Books are available with accompanying DVDs and protein drink certificates and photographs of muscle bound hunks and perfectly formed women that intimidate us. Oh, and there are the online coaches who for a fee will help you toward your goal of not being a foodie flabby fat person until that effort also just becomes too much and not a fast enough `fix it.Now along come 52-year-old Matthew McLaughlin who has overcome more physical challenges than almost all of us and has developed a book that is a guide toward becoming and staying fit - even after age 50! The reason this book works is that it is relayed in such a caring and no-nonsense manner. McLaughlin takes a look at everything - form recommending that every reader get a physical exam form their doctor before starting his concept of fitness, to briefing us on the reason that the fast fix fad gimmicks dont work, and then progresses into a tremendously well informed and solid presentation about nutrition, food groups, and eating habits, and tells us reasonable and recreatable meal plans that work for him and how they can work for us. He stresses the frequent small meals with the right balance of protein and carbs as a way of simply adapting to new and healthy habits of consuming food instead of the old breakfast/lunch/dinner concept. He also pays attention to the aging process and without making anyone feel elderly he gifts excellent stretching exercises that allow muscles groups to regain normal function. Then he moves into weight training ideas, how to run (yes there is a right and wring way), cycling, cardiovascular workouts and how to pace them, and how to give yourself a break by keeping a log of your progress - a trait that has longevity and is a great payoff to seeing improvement.Quite simply, this smart book is simple to read and simple to follow and the writing style is such that we feel included in our own well being by someone who not only cares but who has been there/done that. It is all here in one compact book with enough photographs to explain exercises in detail so that we can recreate them ourselves. Matthew McLaughlin has created a Health Manual for all ages (but it is especially welcome to those of us over 50...).Grady Harp
