How will this be different?

The Alpine Weight Loss Secrets looks at weight loss and age loss from a fresh-air, alpine perspective. These are people who really walk the walk. They are strong, youthful, thin and independent until a very advanced age. And they never dieted or worked out in a gym in their lives! Pockets around the world where individuals live in good health, independent and vigorous through old age are know as “Blue Zones.” Streifing, the tiny community where Stefan grew up could well be considered a Blue Zone today. Stefan believes that we control how we age and he shows you first-hand, just how to do that.
