Can what we eat determine how long and how well we live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and the longevity diet is easier to follow than you think.

This unique program is the result of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition and diseases around the world and provides a simple solution for healthy living into old age through nutrition. The key lies in combining the healthy daily diet plan described in the book with the scientifically developed fasting diet (FMD). The FMD, which is carried out only three to four times a year, puts an end to the suffering and hunger that most of us experience when fasting and makes it possible to take advantage of all the positive health effects of a strict diet while avoiding negative stressors such as lack of energy and insomnia.

Dr. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, developed FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice and then in humans. These showed that certain diets can activate stem cells and promote the regeneration and rejuvenation of several organs to significantly reduce the risk of diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer's and heart disease.
