Book Descriptions    

Is This Normal?  The Essential Guide to Middle Age and Beyond (2011)
John Whyte (Author), Dean Ornish (Foreword)

More than 78 million American adults are nearing the age when unexpected aches and pains, weight gains, sudden illnesses, and confusing mental changes begin to occur. At 50 or 60, we begin to wonder if the changes we’re experiencing are a cause for concern or just a normal part of aging. In Is This Normal?  Dr. Whyte provides cutting-edge medical advice for the effects of aging we face every day—from gray hair and wrinkles to cardiovascular health.  He answers a broad range of questions, such as:

  • How much weight gain is normal as we age—and why is it so hard to lose?
  • What are the signs of Alzheimer’s versus normal memory loss?
  • How to stay healthy and vital for decades to come.

Soon-to-be-Released:   
AARP New American Diet: Lose Weight, Live Longer
(Hardcover, December 2012)

Weight loss for grownups! This book draws on the NIH/AARP Diet and Health Study, the largest-ever survey of American diet and lifestyle. Author John Whyte, MD, reveals surprising new research insights, such as the fact that drinking diet soda and eating fat-free foods can actually lead to weight gain. Filled with practical advice and listing the top 25 diet busters and the top 25 diet boosters, this breakthrough book includes guidelines on meat, alcohol, fat, sugar, and fiber consumption, and includes three prescriptive weight-loss plans—a 7-day plan, 2-week plan, and 4-week plan. The AARP New American Diet helps you lose weight while staying vital, happy, and healthy for a lifetime.
