Robin McGraw Appears on Role Mommy

images-1.jpegWe just interviewed Dr. Phil’s better half, Robin McGraw, who stopped by our site to talk about her latest book, What’s Age Got to Do with It?: Living Your Healthiest and Happiest Life. Robin is a fabulous storyteller who shares some great anecdotes from her book, which is sure to be a hit not only with the 55 and over crowd, but for those of us looking for ways to stay healthy and fit at any age.
What I love about the book is that it covers every aspect of a woman’s life, from health, diet, fitness, hair, fashion and make-up. Robin’s decision to maintain a healthy lifestyle was caused after mother died of a heart attack at 58. While her mom put everyone else’s needs above her own, Robin realized that if you don’t take care of yourself, the people who eventually lose out are your family if your life is cut short by a disease or health issue that could have been avoided with preventative care.
For those of us battling the bulge, Robin offers a two week nutrition plan that’s sure to help us shed excess weight. Plus, she outlines her entire fitness routine with her personal trainer; and she shares the secret behind her flawless face. She has never had plastic surgery but does monthly medi-facials that stimulate her facial muscles and keep her skin looking fresh and youthful. She also drinks tons of water (which I totally need to do), stays out of the sun and now avoids sugar because she learned it not only makes you fat, but it causes wrinkles!
And she even shares a great hair story about Michael Bolton – but I don’t want to give everything away! Click on the link below as Robin shares her personal stories and advice about how to look great at any age.
