FREE READ ✓ LANQIUJIA.CO ô Valter Longo Valter Longo ô 1 SUMMARY SUMMARY La dieta della longevita Ryday eating plan the book outlines with the scientifically engineered fasting mimicking diet or FMD; the FMD done just 3 4 times a year does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet while avoiding negative stressors like low energy and sleeplessness Valter Longo direc. 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 sufficient evidence to prove his hypothesisBenefits of the Longevity DietNote I wasn t paying too much attention to the scientific validity of Dr Longo s research for the first six chapters But by chapter 7 his disclaimers got to be so repetitive that I started making note of them I didn t bother going back over the first six chapter to site examplesAt the end of Chapter 7 on cancer prevention he says Our clinical trials looking into FMD and cancer prevention and treatment are ongoing but if early results are any indication it could be a powerful new weapon in the arsenal we have to fight and one day defeat cancer In other words this whole concept is currently based on good indications only Hardly worthy of being published as a scientific foundation for his claimsAt the end of Chapter 8 on diabetes he says We are now working toward performing clinical trials as part of the FDA approval process Again no solid scientific foundation for his assertion that his dietary interventions MAY complement standard proceduresAt the end of Chapter 9 on cardiovascular disease he says Remember because the dietary interventions described in this chapter have not been tested in large randomized clinical trials for the treatment of cardiovascular disease they should be used only in support of standard care Our early results are certainly promising enough that you and your doctor should bear them in mind as we continue to work toward larger trials and FDA approval At the end of Chapter 10 on Alzheimer s disease he says Although our studies into AD are perhaps the most speculative this is an area I feel especially passionate about Bully for him He adds This is my ambitious vision and we re working with labs and researchers around the world to help make it possible In Chapter 11 on inflammatory and autoimmune diseases he posits that a potential factor explaining the rapid world wide increase in autoimmune diseases may involve expanding choices in a modern globalized food supply He suggests that we eat what our ancestors ate Later he states We do not yet have solid evidence that eating at the table of your ancestors will prevent diseases and make you live longer Then he talks about FMD as a possible way of treating autoimmune diseases But he adds Please consider that these interventions are still under clinical or laboratory investigation and that until larger clinical trials are completed we cannot know whether they are effective in humans nor can we exclude the possibility of severe side effects in a minority of patients He gives the same treatment to multiple sclerosis Crohn s disease colitis and rheumatoid arthritis then ends with After future studies we will know about the efficacy of FMD against various autoimmune disorders We will also know about the length and freuency of the diet best suited to treating these diseases Chapter 12 gives a summary of how to stay young Basically follow his LongevityFMD diet exercise and use your mind He gives a very brief summary of the testing he has done so far He states Finally I performed epidemiological studies of large US populations to understand the association between the consumption of certain foods and disease Because epidemiological studies do not control for other factors the best they can do is show associations They cannot prove causationIt sounds like Dr Longo is really jumping the gun and should be ashamed that he has written a book giving advice about treating all sorts of conditions with his possibly helpful ideasThe DietThe Longevity Diet described below doesn t sound like solid dietary advice to me for a number of reasons People who follow his Longevity Diet NEED to also do his FMD in order to avoid gaining weight See the two cases listed at the end of Chapter 8 Nutrition FMD and Diabetes Prevention and Treatment The FMD part doesn t make sense to me because the only thing it seems to do is restrict caloric intake and avoid non plant proteins I can t fathom how that is mimicking a fast It seems like it would be beneficial to actually fast Longo advocates eating complex carbs which he describes as vegetables such as broccoli tomatoes carrots pumpkin mushrooms etc Some of these have a high glycemic load How can this be good for a nation battling Type 2 diabetes And other than listing ingredients for his 2 week meal plan he doesn t identify which vegetables are acceptable for this diet The diet provides approximately 55 60% of calories from carbohydrates Wow While most of those carbs are complex the diet does allow a good amount of pasta and bread Are there still any dietitians who recommend pasta and bread We know of essential amino acids we know of essential fatty acids We do not know of any essential carbohydrates Although carbs provide some nutrients that can t be obtained elsewhere it s nothing a supplement wouldn t take care of Even Longo advocates taking supplements with his diet Although the diet includes virtually no sugar added it does allow honey and also allows things such as ready made pizza crust and cereal which no doubt have added sugar It also includes plenty of fruits including high glycemic fruits Early in the book Longo claims that sugar is one of the ingredients responsible for aging fast dying early So why does his anti aging diet include so many sugary foods Here s a long list of foods included in his 2 week menu plan that I find suspect Some of these menu items are highly processed crap pumpkin soup with croutons whole wheat focaccia or bread raisin and walnut bread cranberry bread mixed berry or blueberry or apricot or strawberry or plum jam raisins whole grain pasta spaghetti ready made pizza crust dried cranberries cereal whole wheat Rice Krispies bar cinnamon raisin bagel barley rice corn pineapple banana dates strawberries grapes steel cut oats boiled carrots potatoes all kinds of beans honeyRecap of The Longevity Diet1 Eat mostly vegan plus a little fish up to 2 3 mealsweek Choose salmon anchovies sardines cod sea bream trout clams shrimp Look for fish w low levels of mercury2 If 65 yrs old limit protein to 031 036 grams per pound of body weight If weight training see note below Older than 65 increase protein slightly Consume beans chickpeas green peas and other legumes as your main source of protein Include some fish eggs white meat and products from goats sheep3 Minimize saturated fats from animal vegetable sources meat cheese and sugar Maximize good fats and complex carbs Eat whole grains not bread vegetables tomatoes broccoli carrots legumes etc with generous amounts of olive oil 3Tbspday and 1 oz of nutsday walnuts almonds hazelnuts4 Eat foods w high vitaminmineral content Take a multivitamin as a buffer every 3 days5 Eat the types of foods your ancestors would ve eaten6 Eat two mealsday and one snack DO eat breakfast7 Keep eating window down to 12 hrs or less Don t eat anything for 3 4 hrs before bed Limiting food intake hours to less than 11 12 could cause gallstones 8 Until age 65 70 do five days of FMD every 6 monthsIn SummaryDr Longo has done many tests to try to prove his theories about anti aging Naturally he is optimistic about what he sees he wants his theory to pan out He doesn t let the fact that he doesn t have verified scientific studies stop him from promoting his theories or from summarizing out of date dietary advice to be followed in conjunction with his proprietary FMD approach There are many health professionals who advocate for some type of fasting But Dr Longo s version of fast mimicking includes the types of foods that many others advocate avoiding altogetherI really thought this was going to be a diet book that I could embrace Alas I am greatly disappointedOne thing I will give Dr Longo credit for is that he is actually doing research not just citing other people s work He just needs to complete randomized clinical studies before he publishes advice books Ainsi se tut Zarathoustra just 3 4 times a year does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while

SUMMARY La dieta della longevitaLa dieta della longevita

FREE READ ✓ LANQIUJIA.CO ô Valter Longo Valter Longo ô 1 SUMMARY SUMMARY La dieta della longevita Can what you eat determine how long and how well you live The clinically proven answer is yes and  The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you'd think The culmination of 25 years of research on aging nutrition and disease across the globe this uniue program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition The key is combining the healthy eve. I have two different opinions about this book One is scientific and the other is formal I will start with the bad one but please do not forget to read the positive oneAs a book I would say that this work is not of high writing uality I would give it 2 stars Some paragraphs are entertaining but the text is highly repetitive and disorganized with identical sentences repeated in several sections or chapters The goal of the book is explaining the longevity and fasting mimicking diets and their effect in health However even after reading half of the book it is not very easy to understand what these diets are The specific information on the composition of the diets is fragmented at the end of several chapters explaining first how they work and defining them later makes the progression through the book difficult If you want to obtain any conclusions on what to eat that will be a difficult task For instance the definition given for the fasting mimicking diet eg Day 1 total 1100 calories is to combine 500 calories of complex carbohydrates found in vegetables 500 calories of good fats nuts oil 25 g protein of vegetal origin The definition is completely asymmetric calories grams There is no way to avoid proteins when eating vegetables or nuts You can either include the proteins within the calories total 1000 calories or add them as new calories but no easy way to reach the 1100 calories of the day During days 2 5 you need to eat 400 calories from carbohydrates and 400 from fat nuts oil etc and avoid proteins total 800 calories per day Unless you eat pure sugar and pure olive oil that is impossible as most food including e recommended nuts have proteins Difficult to understand These are just examples but the information in the book is uite disorganized The tables with the foods that provide vitamins etc are ok but in my view classifying these tables by the nutrients provided by each type of food rather than classifying by nutrients would much practical for readers In general there are several defects that make reading of the text less attractive It is a pity as it would not be a difficult task to make an interested story from the info given in the textIn some instances the text is unnecessarily egocentric No problem with citing and explaining data generated by the author but I don t see the need of repeating in each sentence that he and his group was the one that discovered or that X company which he founded etc etc Following a common practice only the first author is cited when the list of authors of a paper is too long unless he is in the author list then the first author Longo V is cited just in case readers forgot that these were HIS data even after being mentioned in the main text These sentences together with the constant re repetitions are typical of bad politicians or marketers than serious scientists and may give readers the false impression that the information in the book is just marketingThe Spanish translation of some words is really funny oncogenosFortunately the scientific content is of top uality five stars here Based on current information and very serious research in the last years everyone healthy and sick people should follow the recommendations in the book Data have been published in the most respectful top journals indicating solid a evaluation process and this is the kind of science that has an immediate application for health Some of the ideas presented as unpublished in the book have been recently published in top scientific journals in 2017 I cannot but believe that he is completely right And actually it makes perfect sense I missed references there are sections completely unreferenced and a better system to mention them I would prefer the use of numbered complete referenced rather than ibidem etcI conclude that if this book had been properly written it could become a major reference in recent science The information generated by the author and included in this book properly explained should reach every person in this planet including healthy people but also patients with cancer Alzheimer s diabetes immune diseases ie everyone And everyone should start to follow the recommendations I already did Flora of Maine A Manual for Identification of Native and Naturalized Plants of Maine Vascular just examples but the information in the book is uite disorganized The

FREE READ ✓ LANQIUJIA.CO ô Valter Longo Valter Longo ô 1 SUMMARY SUMMARY La dieta della longevita Tor of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice then in humans indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes cancer Alzheimer’s and heart disea. 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 vitamins can be toxic Also the amount of protein we actually need is not as high as most resources online would tell you could be detrimental so better to stick to relatively low but also high enough for building and maintaining muscle mass he says to stick to 30 grams after a strength workout So to sum it all up Eat mostly a plant based diet adding fish low in mercury only three times a week Get 031 to 036 grams of protein per pound of body weight Multivitamin mineral and omega 3 and omega 6 supplement every 3 days Eat twice per day plus a snack do periodic fasting if you can walk fast one hour a day do strength training keep your mind sharp finish that goodreads challenge However in the book you can see how there is no one size fits all solution So if you are interested in this sort of things it might be a good read for you
