Fasting diets took the world by storm but weren't sustainable due to the frequency of fasting. Longo's revolutionary research shows how to mimic fasting and the Longevity Diet implements this through FMD - a fasting-mimicking diet - which only limits your calorie intake for five days, up to four times a year.
Not only will FMD rejuvenate the body and help weight loss, but the focus of Longo's diet is also to reduce the risk of illnesses such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disease and ultimately improve our health and extend our lifespan. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet and the FMD plan, the Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier, fuller life.
Dr. Valter Longo was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1967. He is one of the world leaders in the field of aging and aging-related diseases and has published over 120 papers which include the discovery of some of the genes responsible for longevity and the identification of a genetic mutation protecting humans from some of the most common diseases. He is currently a professor of Biogerontology and Director of the Longevity Institute in the School of Gerontology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. This is his first commercial book.
