Redefine Age

What we think of old is changing. Zestizm is here to remind me and you of that very fact.

As we live longer the way we eat and move our body becomes crucial to enjoying not just the years in our life but the life in our years.

I was 47 years old when I decided to reduce the animal products I eat like meat and dairy. Increase the range of fruits and veg I eat while finding a way to balance that with regular exercise.

It is a continuous journey. This website reminds me to stay on it. It contains a mixture of what I am doing and what research and science says we should do.

I am NOT A MEDICAL PRACTITIONER. This site is for information only.
