Coming in May: Blue Zones Discussion Group

The Blue Zones


Are you ready to transform your life and live longer?

In this revolutionary book, best-selling author and National Geographic fellow Dan Buettner reveals what the world’s longest-lived people have eaten over the past 100 years to help you lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. Drawing on his decade-long study of five “Blue Zones” – longevity hot spots around the globe – Buettner and his team of dietitians have created a diet for a new generation that emphasizes ways to look beyond your plate, showing you how to engineer healthy choices into your daily routine.
