In writing Looking
good, Feeling great, Ladies 50 and over, Nina Bagnall has
provided women with a powerful resource for staying healthy,
looking good, and feeling good about themselves as they grow
older. I especially appreciated the fact that Nina is speaking
from personal experience, offering advice that she has practiced
and obviously researched. In the introduction, the author
discusses the role of today’s independent women who may have
chosen to work outside the home. Many are less physically active
and are driving to their shorter destinations instead of walking
or cycling. Some may join a gym but how often do they show
up, and are they participating in the correct types of exercise?
Nina stresses the importance of balance when it comes to
exercise, healthy eating, and relaxation.
Though this book is less than
100 pages, the information contained therein is very powerful.
Readers should take seriously the author’s warning to consult
frequently with one’s physician if there are special health
considerations. The pages of this book offer women—50 years of
age and beyond—information that is life-changing. Since this is
a brief review, I will mention some of the subjects covered and
information that I found to be particularly helpful.
The first chapter on menopause
discusses hormonal changes that take place and the dangers of
Hormone Replacement Therapy. The author suggests natural
remedies that will help with hot flashes, controlling weight,
mood swings, vaginal dryness and loss of bone strength. I have
successfully used some of these remedies.
As far as diet is concerned,
Ms. Bagnall devotes much information to the subject of eating
properly. In one chapter, she tells us to stop eating our meals
in front of the television; instead we need to gather around the
table and sit in a chair that will help our posture and
digestion. I had to plead guilty when reading this as my own
family does this way too often. Nina discusses the basics of
good nutrition, including the nutrients that we get from
carbohydrates, fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals. She
mentions that she suffered from IBS and, since I also have been
diagnosed with this, I was particularly interested in the
section on water soluble and insoluble fiber. As do many health
professionals, the author expresses her belief that, if
individuals eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, they
will get all the vitamins and minerals that their bodies
require. Of course, fast food is mentioned and referred to as
the tragedy of the modern age.
It is my belief that one of
the most important contributions to this book are the fruit,
vegetable, nut and seed charts which show mineral and vitamin
content. I plan to have this book with me the next time I go
grocery shopping. In addition to the subjects I have mentioned,
the author discusses metabolism, exercise and why it is so
important to drink lots of water. The pages of this book
influenced me to the point that I am going to begin a new
procedure for starting my mornings as well as living my days
which should help in my transformation to a healthier person who
will be able to ignore age and enjoy life. Learning to relax
and to take care of my lungs are both very important—the author
has asthma and points out the well-known dangers of smoking.
Toward the end of the book,
Nina Bagnall teaches us how to take care of the body from the
outside, dealing with topics that will interest all readers.
She doesn’t wear makeup; perhaps she doesn’t need it because of
the healthy lifestyle she is living. There are additional tips
to help us on this transformation journey.
This is an all-encompassing
self-help book that I hope readers will purchase for themselves
and others who are fifty years of age or older. Although many
subjects apply to a particular age group of women, I believe
men—also younger women—will find much valuable information to
help them maintain better health. I highly recommend this book
and suggest that you buy several copies and give them as gifts.
For Independent Professional Book Reviewers
this is a topic many women keep researching, it is not a new
topic. However, the Information presented by the author is very
informative and she offers many valuable and Inexpensive
The first chapter
starts out with a bang - menopause. Usually books I have read on
the topic the author has chosen hide menopause in the back part
of the book. She makes great points about taking Hormone
Replacement Therapy and concerns she has like getting cancer.
Her recommendations on finding foods that have Omega 3,
vitamins, calcium, and fiber were very helpful.
chapter talks about dietary factors- heavens we all know about
that subject; we’re on/off diets all our life. Again, she
provides some great information on what to drink and eat, plus
the importance of getting enough sleep.
I found the
chapter on mind and body to be a very important one. In today’s
world we are running amuck most of the time- we get stressed,
don’t get enough sleep and eat on the run, if we eat at all.
The mind and body
are connected and when we are worn out – our attitudes change
and we tend to become sick. Ms. Bagnall’s suggestions on
relaxation were quite informative.
I liked the way
the author addressed each topic- it was if she was just sitting
down and talking to you. There was no judgment, nothing saying
“do it my way or else.” “Looking Good Feeling Great Ladies 50
and Over” by Nina Bagnall is easy to read and very
Carol Hoyer, PhD
Bagnall's book "Looking Good, Feeling Great, Ladies 50 and
Over" is a great resource for women entering the era of 50,
or are in it. The information Nina provides isn't new, but what
is so great about this book is the fact all the information you
need to look and feel good is contained within 82 pages. The
book is concise, educational, and informative. Most of the book
is dedicated to providing information to have a healthy internal
body, for example: dietary factors, free radicals, metabolism,
mind and body, and sleep. She also covers external issues such
as skin, hair, nails, and eyes.
Nina's passion in her own life comes through her writing. It is
obvious she did much research for her own use and is now sharing
it with other women. I highly recommend "Looking Good,
Feeling Great, Ladies and Over" to all women because you're
never too young or too old to start the regime for better
