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.
