Even More of the World’s Most Unusual Prisons
Old age has won. How 82-year-old grandfather became a jock
There is an opinion that with age a person becomes less active, and with the onset of old age - even more so. In opposition to this stereotype, Jeffrey Life , an American therapist with diabetes and heart problems, started playing sports after 60 years. And he not only gained control over the disease, but also became an example for many young people.
Why did Jeffrey Life decide to play sports?
The story of Jeffrey's transformation began in 1997. A family therapist who has devoted his entire life to work, suddenly realized that it was worth focusing on the most important patient - yourself. With age, the man developed a large belly, shortness of breath and chronic fatigue. At 60, Life began to feel like an old man. It was difficult for him to climb even one flight of stairs.
Then the American began to play sports according to an individual training program with a personal trainer. For five months he followed it, and then read in the magazine about the competition of popular author of publications on healthy lifestyle Bill Phillips - The body for life (Body for life). According to its rules, the participants competed in transformation. Grandpa decided to try his luck and submitted before and after photos to the competition.
Life won the competition and later described the impressions of the victory in his own book Plan of Life:
This marked the beginning of the war against old age. Despite proper nutrition and persistent fitness, after 63 years, the man noticed that he began to lose muscle mass and gain weight. Age began to take over the body.
Jeffrey one day came across a medical conference brochure on the importance of nutrition in disease prevention. At the event, my grandfather met doctors who specialize in anti-aging programs. Life followed a new method and, according to him, after a couple of months of practice felt significant changes in body and spirit.

Actually, there is nothing special about Dr. Life's program. He just picked the right vitamins and other supplements that are necessary at his age. The doctor also advised Jeffrey to follow a low-fat and low-carb diet and exercise regularly. The changes were not long in coming, and grandfather with a share of humor noted ethen in your book.
Life keeps himself in shape for many years. He devotes time to strength training, cardio, stretching and swimming. But fitness is far from the only activity that keeps Jeffrey looking good. He took a great interest in oriental martial arts: a man trains for a black belt in taekwondo and is engaged in Thai boxing. And his interest in his own nutrition made him become a professional in the field of nutrition. It seems that the 82-year-old American never stops halfway and brings everything he starts to perfection.

What does Jeffrey Life do after his transformation?
Dr.Life was so pleased with the results of the method that he decided to include the lessons he learned in the process transformation into their own medical practice. He found clients and helps them fight age. Jeffrey believes that older adults do not consume enough protein and this contributes to muscle loss. Therefore, a man often advises people over 60 to take protein and other dietary supplements. For example, calcium, vitamin D3, multivitamin mineral complex, CoQ10, probiotics, and lycopene. After such an impressive list, the desire immediately arises not to start health from a young age.
Now 82-year-old Life is promoting a healthy lifestyle, fighting old age and helping others. The doctor has a website where everyone can sign up for the development of an individual technique. Jeffrey also produces nutritional supplements, vitamins and other products under his own name. He is the author of several books and his work Plan of Life has become a bestseller. It turns out that the desire to be active gave my grandfather both an excellent body for his age, and an earnings.
It is never too late to start taking care of health and playing sports. After all, a correct lifestyle will help you forget about painful old age. Now it's your turn, says Jeffrey Life to everyone.
