WHO IS JAMES MIDDLETON MURRAY?
In July 2012 author James Middleton Murray, as the result of bankruptcy, was forced into early retirement. Bad news yes, but also good news as James had struggled to stay on his feet all day in a busy coffee shop because the cartilage in his knees was badly worn. Eighteen months later James was both fortunate and grateful to receive two artificial knees. James promised his specialist that he would use this ‘gift’ to lose weight and become the fittest and healthiest person he could be.
At his twelve month check up with the surgeon James proudly showed off his new muscular and 23 kilo lighter body. His surgeon was amazed at James’ transformation and called him his most successful post operative patient. James used daily exercise, healthy eating and ‘goal’ setting to achieve his new body.
It is also the author’s good fortune to have a partner in Angela who is a fantastic cook. Angela made healthier versions of James’ favourite recipes to help with both weight loss and fitness while still being full of flavour. Just substituting wholegrain pasta and rice makes any meal healthier.
James is now a healthy 83 kilos, rather than the unhealthy 106 kilos he was previously. He no longer takes prescription drugs for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, anti depressants or Viagra. He describes himself as being fitter now than when he played AFL football in his twenties. He is passionate that both he and his readers avoid living the last years of their lives in a ‘Nursing Home’, suffering from an avoidable ‘lifestyle’ disease.
'Let’s face it no one really want’s to end their live that way. I don't want the legacy of my generation - the ‘Baby Boomers’ - to be that they left a huge health cost burden for all their grandchildren.' - James Middleton Murray

A little over two years ago, author James Middleton Murray’s weight had ballooned to 106 kilos. For a man who had always prided himself on being fit and having a lean muscular body, this was a shock. He had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and was at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. As a result of running for many years on hard surfaces, his knees had very little cartilage left.
Following a bilateral knee replacement early in 2014, James decided that having new knees was his opportunity to regain his health and fitness.
Ageing Well is the story of how James achieved his goal of getting his weight down to 83 kilos. He once again obtained the muscular body and level of fitness that he had enjoyed for most of his life. He accomplished these results by radically altering his diet, walking every day, and weight training three times a week. He is no longer at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. James’s blood pressure, cholesterol levels, general fitness, and muscular body are the equal of many men half his age.
This book is a how-to guide for readers who want to achieve the same results and are ready to follow James’s exercise and dietary regime. It is a recipe for both men and women on how to age well and have a much greater chance of avoiding the fate of spending their last years in a nursing home.
