Valter Longo, the scientist whose revolutionary studies on genetics, nutrition, stem cells and longevity have become a fundamental reference point, reveals all of these topics in his book. Basing his findings on a 5-pillar strategy, Longo has demonstrated that it’s possible to be cured through food. The Longevity Diet is simple to follow on a daily basis for those who already enjoy a Mediterranean diet, and it works well with the extraordinarily effective Fasting-Mimicking Diet developed in his laboratory. Inspired by the ancient habits common to all cultures, the DMD helps reduce the risks and difficulties of eating less, making it compatible with the requirements of an active lifestyle. Like a Longevity Elixir, the Longo Diet cures us with food, and therefore revolutionizes our relationship with it.
