The Longevity Diet (Interview with FMD founder Dr. Valter Longo)
Fasting of some sort seems to be the buzz word these days when it comes to longevity medicine. Dr. Valter Longo was one of the keynote speakers at last month's American Academy of Anti-aging (A4M) meeting held in Las Vegas. He brings a new twist on fasting ; FMD =Fasting Mimicking Diet where one doesn't actually fast ,but drastically reduces calories 5 days of the month. His research is pretty compelling. Potential benefits run the gamut from cancer treatment and prevention to cardiovascular disease prevention, improved cognition with aging, and stem cell proliferation. I don't believe this is merely a fad. I believe we will be hearing quite a bit about FMD in the very near future.
