The UN-Diet Diet is a health reclamation strategy. It is designed to give the participant simple and effective tools to aid in improving overall health, effectively deal with weight management issues, and to serve as a guide for empowered aging. The program is aimed at those over the age of 55 with existing health compromise. It examines the true genesis of both health and disease through the lens of our evolutionary footprint, drilling down to the essence of what it means to be alive. It is here within the principles which create and maintain life, that we also find the keys to health and longevity.


Read an Excerpt:

Science is just starting to understand the resident wisdom contained within the human body with all its complex mechanisms for preserving health. Let me give you an example.

Through an internal strategy for repairing and replacing cells, called senescence, directed by tiny signalling proteins called sirtuins (we will discuss this in depth a little further into the book), we are naturally and automatically capable of monitoring and regulating many metabolic functions related to ageing and repair—including genome stability, inflammatory response, apoptosis (normal cell death), DNA repair and mitochondrial functions. I am sure that some of you may be saying, “So what? Big words and complex processes, but what’s the point?” What I am driving at is simple. The body is creation’s most magnificent health factory. We were all born with these and many other spectacular health enhancing processes, and they happen without thought or conscious direction every minute of every day you are alive. Really, it just does not get any more amazing!

As for blaming illness on age, although some critical biological functions may not perform quite as effectively at eighty-five as they did at thirty-five, as we go forward into the book, you will witness how these processes most certainly can be stimulated to work more efficiently at any point in our lives.


5 stars!

Common sense explanations, inspirational discussions, and a doable program for the Boomer generation.

The Un-Diet Diet is the new guide aimed at the over-55 audience who want to improve their lifestyle and reclaim their health to feel better and age more gently. A practicing physician for over 40 years, Dr. Pooley takes the time and effort to explain the hows and whys the current generation of seniors are experiencing many preventable conditions and lays out straightforward methods that can alleviate or avoid some common health struggles. The messages contained herein are understandable, doable, and inspiring. 

Dr. Pooley takes a whole-person, whole-life, all-systems approach to strengthening and maintaining health, explaining how each of the five interconnected areas must be addressed for our bodies to work optimally and age well. The book's title rings true; this is not a diet book, although reasoned food management is one of the five parts. 

The author structures his program on five interconnected principles: "The Five Pillars to Health." Pooley explains what each pillar constitutes and how they must be considered to attain a healthy state. His writing style is engaging and easy to read and follow, even when discussing complex ideas. His tone was much like that of a good friend who really likes you. Case studies of real-life situations with past patients are included throughout the book and clearly illustrate the principles under discussion and their application or how health problems had manifested. 

Considering the nature of this material and the target audience's age, the author stresses that before jumping feet first into this or any similar program, readers should consult their own healthcare provider for their informed go-ahead. However, everything mentioned made absolute sense, and there were no outrageous demands inherent in the program. 

I recommend THE UN-DIET DIET to readers of this age group considering making health improvements and wanting to emphasize common sense lifestyle choices.
