SEX at SIXTY!
You may have heard the old saying: “There may be snow on the roof but there’s still fire in the furnace.” It means age has little to with urge. And yet, all too often, men and women needlessly forgo the opportunity to enjoy a rich, satisfying, and active sex life as they get older.
Sexuality in Midlife and Beyond, a newly revised Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School, tells you everything you want and need to know about experiencing your sexual maturity to its fullest. It explains the techniques and practical steps you can take to find ongoing fulfillment in the physical and emotional pleasures that sex affords.
Indeed, midlife can be a springboard to renewed sexual expression and connection. Some women feel more relaxed about sex once their child-bearing days are past. The changes a man experiences can be an impetus for developing fresh and more expressive styles of lovemaking.
Sexuality in Midlife and Beyond describes the latest treatments for common sexual problems associated with aging. It provides guidance for bringing understanding, intimacy, and adventure back into a relationship. And it will show you how to keep sex an anticipated, natural, and gratifying experience for you and your partner.

And just as candidly, the report explores how you can improve your sexual fitness, rekindle your sexual energy, and add stimulating variety and spontaneity to your sexual activities.

101 year old man who was getting ready to do his 10 marathon What? Can you say that again? I asked him.
He told me that years ago he discovered that when he ate a combination of broccoli, green tea extract and spirulina his energy levels dramatically increased.
My new found 101 year old friend finished the marathon in a respectable 5.5 hours and I hobbled across the line in just over 6.
After the race and the adrenalin died down I found myself thinking about the conversation I had with this guy at the start line.
How could it be possible that a simple combination of foods could give a 101 year old guy enough energy to run a marathon? The researchers found that when specific quantities of these foods are combined.
The quest to live longer has been one of humanities oldest dreams, but while scientists have been searching, a few isolated communities have stumbled across the answer.
On the remote Japanese island of Okinawa, In the Californian town of Loma Linda and in the mountains of Sardinia people live longer than anywhere else on earth.
In these unique communities a group of scientists have dedicated their lives to trying to uncover their secrets.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are about 500,000 centenarians in the world, and almost 100,000 in the United States. And the population is rapidly growing. The agency projects by 2050 there will be 1.1 million centenarians in America alone. Meanwhile, researchers at Boston University predict there will be even more, estimating some 3 million baby boomers will live to be 100 or older.
This begs the question: How can you live healthfully into your 100s? Experts say having good genes is half the battle, but lifestyle clearly contributes too. ForbesWoman asked current 100-year-olds to share their secrets for healthy living. Medical professionals insist that beginning these practices early can easily add decades to your lifetime–though it is never too late to start.
Many studies support the belief that having an upbeat and positive attitude will translate into living a longer, healthier life, and conversely, that a pessimistic outlook promotes ill health and can shave years off your life.
For example, in one study,1 the tendency to always expect the worst was linked to a 25 percent higher risk of dying before the age of 65.
Perhaps one of the most well-known forerunners of “the science of happiness” was Norman Cousins, who in 1964 was diagnosed with a life-threatening autoimmune disease.
After being given a 1 in 500 chance of recovery, Cousins created his own laughter therapy program, which he claims was the key to his ultimate recovery. He went on to write the book, “Anatomy of an Illness,” and established the Cousins Center for Psychoneuroimmunology2 in Los Angeles, California.

Food is more than nutrition. We believe its essential to have optimal amounts of these nutrients and to be
nourished through the power of yum, joy of cooking and eating, and the courage to be creative while increasing
control of our food supply and meal preparation.
6 STEPS TO GETTING MORE PHYTONUTRIENTS
Eat a Rainbow of Phytonutrients
1 Aim for 9-13 Servings of Plant Foods Everyday
We need about 9-13 servings of whole plant foods if we want to prevent chronic disease. A typical serving
is only half a cup of cooked vegetables, one cup of raw leafy vegetable, or a medium-sized piece of fruit. It
would be best to aim for every meal of the day to have about 3-4 servings of plant foods so that at three
general meals per day (not including snacks), you would make your serving requirement on a daily basis.
2 Know Your Phytonutrient Sources
Phytonutrient-rich eats are limitless, making it fun to experiment with new varieties and colors even within
one category of food. Here are some sources of phytonutrients to get you started: any and all plant foods,
including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and even herbs and spices.
3 Eat the Rainbow of Colors
Instead of getting the full rainbow of color, you may be eating the standard processed food colors of brown,
yellow, and white. For example, think of the typical breakfast menu waffles, pancakes, ready-to-eat cereal,
sausage, and eggs which does not necessarily provide much color early in the day. However, if you had a
fruit smoothie with blueberries, peaches, and raspberries, youd have three colors of the seven colors of the
rainbow first thing in the morning! Make it your goal to get the full seven colors every day with a variety
4 Vary Your Choices
There are thousands of phytonutrients in nature. If we eat the same foods over and over again, even if they
are colorful, we may be missing the universe of important phytonutrients in foods. One helpful hint is to try
a new food every week to ensure that you are getting different foods to try!
5 Maximize Combinations
When we put certain foods together, we may achieve a better effect than if we just had the foods by
themselves. Sometimes, there can be a synergistic result from combining certain foods. For example,
putting turmeric with black pepper together with olive oil could enhance the phytonutrient effects of all
three foods on your health. Adding lemon juice to spinach could help the iron become more absorbed by
your body. Try putting plant foods together for an enhanced health benefit.
6 Be Creative with Substitutions
One way to get more plant foods would be to think of foods that are commonly eaten that may not
be as nutrient dense and replace with nutrient-dense options. Some plant foods clearly give us more
phytonutrients than others! For example, you could substitute mashed potatoes with mashed purple
potatoes or sweet potatoes. You could substitute white rice with purple, brown, or black rice.
