Valter Longo: longevity diet and fasting mimics
Professor Valter longo has stood out in recent years for revolutionary discoveries regarding nutrition and longevity.
Promoter of the fasting mimicking diet, his dietary recommendations are going around the world, and are received with interest and acclaim by industry experts.
Epidemiology, clinical studies, in-depth analysis of the lifestyle of the longest-lived populations, and the union of these tools: these are the "pillars" of over thirty years of Valter Longo's work on the prevention of degenerative diseases and on longevity in relation to nutrition.
Prevention and pillars of longevity
Prevent some chronic diseases, and contributing to the success of some therapies is possible by following some essential principles:
> Starting from a vegan or peach-vegetarian diet basis: which includes an abundance of seasonal vegetables and proteins deriving from legumes or, if you prefer, from small fish;
> Delete sugar simple and refined foods;
> Take advantage of fiber and carbohydrates contained in legumes and whole grains, as well as in products deriving from wholemeal flours;
> Consume unsaturated fats (extra virgin olive oil, dried fruit and oil seeds), eliminating the saturated ones (meats, sausages, hydrogenated, processed products);
> Rest adequately;
> Eat within 12 hours (eg: between 8.00 and 20.00) and do not eat in the 3 or 4 hours prior to night sleep;
> Engage in moderate but daily physical activity.
A way to healthy longevity
In the project "The way of longevity", to which Dr. Franco Berrino dedicated himself together, Professor Longo goes beyond these recommendations, adding, as equally important, a last factor: cultivating the spiritual part of one's life.
Parallel to the activity of Valter Longo, the Create Cures Foundation: a non-profit foundation whose purpose is to disseminate the rules for a healthy and long life in support of the research of innovative care tools that can be used by all, even by those who do not have great financial resources to ensure the most modern and effective medical treatments.
The Create Cures Foundation and its proceeds
The foundation is responsible for making the information about the latest discoveries in the therapeutic field for the treatment and prevention of chronic degenerative diseases, and supports low impact, economic and physical care projects.
Proceeds from the sale of Professor Longo's books they are destined to the idea of a medicine that not only intervenes where it is necessary, but that prevents and respects man in his entirety.
