7 Years Younger: Review & Giveaway!

7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Plan to Look and Feel Your Best
7 Years Younger: The Revolutionary 7-Week Plan to Look and Feel Your Best
Author: Editors of Good Housekeeping
Pages: 356


This revolutionary new book kicks off with a 7-day Jumpstart plan offering you all the tools you need to start your total rejuvenation. Then you'll follow the 7-week, science-based program with a holistic approach to looking and feeling younger. Its 7 age erasers cover every base with special regimens for skin care, makeup, hair care, nutrition and diet, fitness, brain fitness, and emotional health. With this program you can "de-age" your skin, use makeup and hair smarts to get a youthful look, rehab your diet and exercise habits in a way that lowers your risk of age-related diseases and to lose weight, learn to sharpen your mind, and nurture your emotional health. You'll be surprised at how much you can turn back the clock on your own--without stepping near a plastic surgeon's office, or spending a fortune on expensive beauty products.

The scientists at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute rigorously tested more than 400 beauty products and conducted more than 5,000 lab tests over the course of two years to find the anti-aging products that really work. Then ten test panelists went on the week long Jumpstart followed by the full 7-week plan. The results were fantastic, with one panelist losing 12 pounds, another losing 10 inches from around her waist, and yet another re-emerging as the glamorous-looking woman she was before she started raising a family. As one of the panelists said, "There are a lot of diet and exercise programs out there on the market. And there are a lot of beauty tips you can get... but '7 Years Younger' has taken all of those things and put them into... a one stop shopping experience for your... overall beauty and health and mindset."

"What's great about the program," says Good Housekeeping editor in chief Rosemary Ellis, "is that you can treat it like a tool kit. You can pick and choose which elements of the program you want to focus on."

My Thoughts:

I am really excited about sharing this book with you and I think it's the perfect time for a little change in our lives for this new year! Who doesn't want to look and feel their best? I know I do! This book starts out with a pledge for you to take and is then divided into 11 chapters. The first 7 chapters focus on the 7 age erasers. They give a wealth of information and tips for your skin, makeup, hair, diet, fitness, brain, and reducing stress. The next few chapters include a jumpstart plan, the 7-week program, and recipes. It can seem a tad bit overwhelming so it's great to have it all broken down into categories.

I have read through this book and can't wait to jump into the plan. This book recommends products that the team have tested and concluded to be the best products out there. Even if you don't follow the plan exactly you can pick and choose things that you want to implement and there are so many tips you can take away from this book for a healthier, more beautiful YOU! Who's with me?!
