The Longevity Diet: Discover the New Science Behind Stem Cell Activation and Regeneration to Slow Aging, Fight Disease, and Optimize Weight

We all know the saying “You are what you eat.” For most people, that translates to “avoid junk food.” But this popular expression reflects a deeper truth. Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and THE LONGEVITY DIET by Valter Longo, PhD is the program to help you live a longer, healthier life. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique fasting-mimicking diet (FMD) lays out a simple solution to living long through nutrition. FMD does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting and helps you reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet while avoiding the 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, developed FMD after reviewing studies of mice who showed significantly reduced risk for diabetes, cancer, and heart disease while on a standard fasting plan. Longo developed a simple daily eating plan and periodic, fast-mimicking techniques that yield the same results - this time in people - as more rigorous, traditional fasting plans. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is clinically proven to help you:

· Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat

· Increase your lifespan

· Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss

· Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's Disease and cancer

Longo's healthy, life span-extending plan is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fast-mimicking diet, which is used no more than 4 times a year and for just 5 days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet and the FMD plan, THE LONGEVITY DIET is the key to living a longer, healthier, and fulfilled life.


Valter Longo is the director of the Longevity Institute at USC in Los Angeles, and of the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM (Molecular Oncology FIRC Institute) in Milan. His studies focus on the fundamental mechanisms of aging in simple organisms and mice and on how they can be translated to humans. Dr. Longo received the 2010 Nathan Shock Lecture Award from the National Institute on Aging (NIA/NIH) and the 2013 Vincent Cristofalo "Rising Star" Award in Aging Research from the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR). Not coincidentally, Longo is from a town in Italy that is home to some of the longest-lived people in the world.
