Defying Age With Food
In my wheelhouse, a 40-something woman with the audacity and courage to remove all clothing to demonstrate how one can look at that age is props worthy. And to the sound of prudish panties bunching up everywhere: I don’t care what you think.
In her book, Defying Age with Food: Reclaim Your Health, Energy & Vitality! It’s What You Eat, Not How Much You Exercise, Freda speaks to many common issues that seem to plague women—or at least, in the non-reproductive realm, issues that plague humans generally, but only women talk about them. In large measure then, it’s a food book for people, but women will find a particular emphasis on the issues they are most concerned about.
Here’s a partial list of what Freda covers: adrenal fatigue, heavy metal toxicity, thyroid issues, accelerated aging (early wrinkles, saggy skin, droopy eyes), early internal aging, addictions, surplus energy, underachievement, infertility, pre-menopause, PMS, mood-swings, irritability, emotional instability, acne, healthy gut, immunity, exercise myths, weight-loss myths and weight fluctuations.
The book has more than 15 full-color recipes, kitchen tips and lots and lots of clickable links to many resources outside the book—a feature I included in my own book, and ought to be the minimum standard for all non-fiction ebooks from here out.
The book also comes with a warning:
NOTE – THIS Ebook CONTAINS NUDITY! Classy nudity!
So, be warned if you can’t handle the naked human female form. And to the sound of faces taking on disapproving grimaces while harping that this is just a stunt: I don’t care what you think.
An excerpt from the book, page 12.
How Am I Supposed to Look?
It is hard to remember what a real female naked body looks like because today all the images I see of women involve a lot of airbrushing from television to magazines, these women appear flawless and perfect. Yet, you see them in real life and you hardly recognize them. It is so deceiving. So many of us strive for this unrealistic image at the cost of our mental and physical health.
Go back 100 years ago, 1000 years ago, women weren’t flawless, they had curves and were voluptuous. Check out A Requiem for Dieting and The Body Image Adjustment Department found on Julie Ross’s website The Diet Cure.
What I’ve accomplished with my body for this book I did in less than six weeks, once a week at the gym, and in home workouts which were about 3 to 4x’s a week in under 20 minutes sessions each. I’m a recovering cardio addict. Yes, I was the one you’d see on The Gauntlet running those stairs for 45 to 60 minutes almost every day or walking on the treadmill. I just didn’t know how to sit still.
So there. And she shows you; and she looks good. That’s her on the cover, by the way.
On a final note I did a podcast interview with Freda and Pam Killeen a month or so ago. I find the title they chose to be somewhat amusing: Angelina Jolie’s Double Breast Mastectomy and Morning Wood w/ Richard Nikoley of Free The Animal.
