Overview

Do you want to radically reduce your risk for cancer, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and more-even to slow your aging process-and live decades longer than your parents and grandparents? Longtime calorie restriction (CR) practitioners and experts Brian M. Delaney and Lisa Walford show you how.

The concept is simple and flexible-eat fewer calories and choose foods carefully. And it is supported by science: most recently, a twenty-year study funded by the National Institute of Health confirmed that cutting daily calorie intake while eating nutritious foods puts the brakes on the aging process, yields benefits for the brain, and lengthens lifespan.

This revised and updated edition of The Longevity Diet provides all of the tools you need to embrace this life-extending eating strategy, including:

How to make CR work with your own personal lifestyle

A new chapter full of recipes, along with daily meal plans

Tips for balancing your body's essential needs: proteins, lipids, vitamins, minerals, and calories to maximize your health

New information on yoga's complementary benefits-and which poses to practice

Fitness routines most beneficial to CR-and how to incorporate them into your weekly exercise regimen

Complete with testimonials from other successful CR practitioners, The Longevity Diet will empower you to enjoy a lifetime of healthy eating and living-whether your priorities are to live longer, reduce disease risks, lose weight, or simply feel and look healthier.
