La dieta della longevita Mobi ☆ 317 pages ☆ [Reading] ➼ La dieta della longevita By Valter Longo – 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 Can wRector 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 diseas EDIT After reading The Big Fat Surprise I have to lower my rating from 3 stars to 1 star I will leave my original review below This author condemns all animal fats and does not base it on convincing research He is basically promoting a mediterranean diet which had been thoroughly debunked by The Big Fat Surprise and therefore renders this book completely useless I'm a bit conflicted about this bookFirst of all the author starts right off with advertising some nutrition product of his but thankfully that will be it no sales pitches throughout the rest of the bookNext after describing his methodology there are numerous chapters about cancer diabetes dementia cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune diseases which all result in essentially exactly the same conclusion with ever so slight changes in the food intake recommendation It seems extremely repetitiveI can't help but think that the author published this book as an elevator pitch to attract investors to further fund the author's various scientific studies which is OK I guess as these studies all seem to have very promising resultsI liked that the book reinforced what I had already learned from The Circadian Code a better book namely that time restricted eating works wonders however this book focuses much on the WHAT to eat rather than WHEN to eatThe thing is the author recommends a hard core vegan version of the mediterranean diet with a bit of fish here and there Simply because he is Italian and got to know a bunch of very old people from a small village near his home town It seems extremely dangerous to assume that whatever these people ate must be good simply because the sample size is so tiny These people clearly had extremely good genesThe author even recommends eat what your ancestors ate and I'm pretty sure the diet of the old people in Okinawa looked nothing like the mediterranean diet so how would an Asian person approach this book I guess if you are Italian the this book is for you otherwise it will leave you with few uestionsI absolutely love that there are two weeks worth of recipes at the end of the book breakfast lunch snack dinner and especially the lunch and dinner options sound really nice so I'm going to give all these a try The breakfast options will be a bit tougher for me because I can't get the breads that are suggested here in SingaporeIf you already read Why We Sleep and The Circadian Code I would say this book is not necessary to read

Reader Æ La dieta della longevita ↠ Valter Longo

La dieta della longevitaE healthy everyday eating plan the book outlines with the scientifically engineered fasting mimicking diet or FMD the FMD done justtimes 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 di This book is an eye opener with respect to the FMD fasting mimicking diet but the actual Longevity Diet falls short for me for a few reasons Valter says that the two things that will age one uickly and cause problems in the body are too much protein and too much sugar I agree but when I read his daily suggestions for his Longevity Diet I was shocked that he recommends eating dried fruit pretty much every day Dried fruit is loaded with sugar and even though he has you eating only 18 cup at a sitting which is barely a taste by the way why not eat the real thing For instance for the 18 cup of dried blueberries he allows you could have a whole cup of fresh blueberries for 13 less calories carbs and sugar and double the fiber content I don't think he really knows all that much about nutrition especially when he admits to eating beef once a week growing up in Italy the same town where he studied a couple of centenarians but then admonishes eating any kind of animal protein except low mercury fish Another thing that I just can't get over is a couple of paragraphs where he talks about how ridiculous it is to eat in moderation After giving eating advice to a lady one time she concluded that it would be best to eat in moderation His response was to ask her if she would fly on an airplane that she had designed herself I'm sorry but those two topics aren't even remotely associated and this leads me to believe that Valter doesn't even know the definition of moderation Designing an airplane with limited knowledge about how to go about it is not an act of moderation; it's a gamble He even admits that he doesn't even know what eating in moderation means How about eating beef on SundaysBut aside from his lack of nutrition knowledge I think his development of the FMD is super cutting edge He has stats to back up his findings and FMD seems like a definite positive breakthrough
