Chasing Life: New Discoveries in the Search for Immortality to Help You Age Less Today (2007)

Dr. Gupta's first book offers sound and refreshingly practical advice for staving off the effects of aging. Readers looking for a quick fix in a pill or drink mix might be disappointed, but while the keys to staying young may not always seem easy, they are simple. Dr. Gupta says: eat less, move more, exercise your brain. We fret so much about what we eat, but the quantity and frequency of our food intake is actually much more important, as is being regularly physically active and making sure our brains get as much exercise as our bodies. Dr. Gupta breaks down medical technologies and research that may make all of these age-defying principles easier in the years to come, but the most inspiring aspect of the book is the real-world examples of people who follow the habits Dr. Gupta prescribes for living not just longer, but better lives -- like a man who's a record-setting runner at age 92.
