The Longevity Diet

From the scientist who revolutionized research on stem cells and aging and pioneered fasting-mimicking diets for healthy living to age 110 and beyond…

Can what you eat change how long and how well you live?

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.
