The clinically proven answer is “yes.” And The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you would think.
The culmination of 25 years of global research on aging, nutrition, and disease, this unique combination of an easy-to-follow “everyday” diet and short periods of fasting-mimicking diet (FMD) is the key to living to a healthy old age.
FMD does away with the misery of fasting while you reap all the health benefits of a calorie-restrictive diet. It avoids the negative stressors of starving yourself, such as low energy and sleeplessness.
Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, developed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice and humans. He discovered that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to reduce the risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s and heart disease. His daily nutrition plan, together with periodic fasting-mimicking techniques, has yielded startling results in the lab and in clinical trials.
Low in proteins and sugars, rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is clinically proven to help you:
- Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat
- Make simple changes proven to increase healthy lifespan
- Prevent age-related muscle loss and bone loss
- Build up your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s and cancer
Longo’s plan is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian “everyday” diet combined with five-day periods of fasting-mimicking diet you will implement four times a year.
The Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier, and fulfilled life. Includes 30 simple recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo’s five pillars of longevity.
All book proceeds from sale of The Longevity Diet will be donated by the author to the non-profit Valter Longo Foundation and Create Cures to promote and sponsor research on inexpensive, alternative, and integrated therapies for such serious diseases as Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, and other diseases, both in adults and children.
