Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition. The key is combining the healthy everyday eating plan the audiobook outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD; the FMD, done just three to four times a year, does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting, allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet, while avoiding negative stressors like low energy and sleeplessness.
Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's, and heart disease. Longo's simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is proven to help you:
Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat,
Extend your healthy life-span with simple everyday changes,
Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss, and
Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, and cancer.
Longo's healthy, life-span-extending program is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet no more than four times a year, just five days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's five pillars of longevity, The Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier, more fulfilled life.

Fascinating, but with confirmation bias
This was a fascinating book, and I am going to try it’s recommendations. In every facet of nutrition research, controversies and conflicting evidence abound and this book is no different.
The central idea, however, is amazing and obviously very well documented. I would love to watch a debate between him and the authors of The Perfect Health Diet. There are some very distinct diametrically opposed evidence and conclusions in the two books.

Science-based. Very intriguing.
What made the experience of listening to The Longevity Diet the most enjoyable?
The humor and realness that Dr. Longo brings to a very scientific subject. I also liked his frankness about his own potential bias's.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Longevity Diet?
The animal studies that prove his theories.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, too much info for a single reading. Best to take in over several days.
Any additional comments?
Will be one of my recommended books to anyone truly interested in seeking their best health.
