I’m Done Aging for Good | Critical Book Review
Frederick Sabido’s “I’m Done Aging for Good: How to Live Long and Healthy with an Age Reversing Diet” promises to be your trusty guide in the quest for everlasting youth. But is it all it’s cracked up to be? Kathy L. Brown takes a closer look in her candid review.
Unpacking the Age-Defying Secrets
This indie nonfiction book takes you on a whirlwind tour of health and longevity, all served with a side of unwavering positivity. Sabido, a university-level scholar-athlete, dons the hat of a mentor, dishing out advice that could rival your personal trainer’s motivational speeches.
The book kicks off with some heavy academic jargon about the physiology of aging and the nitty-gritty of lifestyle-related diseases. It’s crystal clear but might leave some readers scratching their heads. Thankfully, the tone quickly shifts to a more friendly and conversational style. You’ll find yourself on a first-name basis with the author as he casually drops gems of wisdom.
For example, when discussing the perils of exercise, the book casually mentions, “…after you spend a considerable amount of time exercising, there is a buildup of lactic acid in your muscles and tissues, which can be highly toxic for your body. This is what causes the soreness and muscle pain, and if it stays for long, it can cause permanent damage.”
The Age-Defying Mantra
At its core, “I’m Done Aging for Good” is Sabido’s plea to young folks to kickstart a healthier lifestyle before it’s too late. But fear not, for those already grappling with the consequences of unhealthy living, the book offers hope and guidance.
“Even though life is hard sometimes, and you are bound to experience many rainy days, you have to stay consistent with your lifestyle changes…It is crucial, especially during bad times, to first and foremost look after yourself and make sure you don’t end up going down the self-destructive path,” the book reminds us.
The Verdict: Wisdom for the Health-Curious
This book caters to those overwhelmed by the cacophony of health advice out there. It provides a solid foundation in human anatomy and physiology, serving as a springboard for the author’s health tips. Expect practical, down-to-earth advice rather than magic pills or the latest fitness fad.
“I’m Done Aging for Good” reiterates the basics: Don’t smoke, keep your weight in check, moderate alcohol intake, and embrace lean proteins and veggies. What sets it apart is the why and how behind these rules. It’s a roadmap to a healthier you, delivered with a sprinkle of youthful exuberance.
A Missed Opportunity for Empathy
While the book jovially pokes fun at the elderly’s woes, it falls short in understanding their perspectives on aging and health. More empathy and fewer assumptions could have widened its appeal.
Readers on a quest for lifelong health will find “I’m Done Aging for Good” an engaging companion. Beyond the promise of an “Age-Reversing Diet,” it offers a diverse array of health practices, from dietary choices to workout routines and social support strategies. It’s a worthwhile read for both the young and the not-so-young, looking to defy the sands of time.
