I have two different opinions about this book. One is scientific and the other is more formal. I will start with the bad one (but please do not forget to read the positive one!) As a book, I would say that this work is not of high writing quality (I would give it 2 stars). Some paragraphs are enterta Leggi tutto
The summary is that if you want to decrease likelihood of getting diseases you're genetically predisposed to (cancer, diabetes, heart disease), eat a mostly vegan diet until you turn about 65 year old, exercise, keep your BMI at the lower end of the normal range and do his 5-day fasting mimicking di Leggi tutto
There appears to be a major disconnect between Dr. Longo's work and this book. It's as if someone decided there needed to be a popular book and it was (all or partially) ghostwritten and sent off to the printers. Boom done. His work (and that of his team) is brilliant, but this book is poorly organi Leggi tutto
I trust Dr. Longo's research, he's a recognized expert, but I don't think this plan is very useful to normal people. The concept is basically this: do the Longo "Fasting Mimicking Diet" for 5 days a month, every 3-4 months. The rest of the time, eat the Mediterranean diet and exercise 5-7 hours a we Leggi tutto
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 quickly and cause problems in the body are too much protein and too much sugar. I agree, but when I read
Prescindibile per chi già ha approfondito le tematiche relative all'alimentazione e al suo rapporto con lo stato di salute. Io consiglierei, piuttosto, la lettura del bellissimo Il cibo dell'uomo di F. Berrino, utilissimo sia sul piano teorico che pratico, e tutt'ora insuperato.
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
Dr. Valter Longo gives a broad-stroke description of his Longevity Diet, which includes doing a 5-day Fasting-Mimicking Diet every six months. Most of the book focuses on the benefits of the very specific Fasting-Mimicking Diet (FMD) developed by Longo. But Longo himself admits that there is not yet Leggi tutto
Interesting book on the diet for longevity and disease prevention. Unfortunately it seems too long and too generic (though author dedicates a lot of time to discuss clinical trials, which is great). Long story short: eat mostly vegan, eat good fats and complex carbs, not a lot of protein (which is c Leggi tutto
Interesting take on dr Longo's own research on diet and longevity. I like how he takes a pragmatic approach on what we should actually do: for instance taking a multivitamin not every day but once every two to three days because being nourished is good but some studies have shown that certain vitami Leggi tutto
