The Effects of Diet on Lifespan, Part 1
February 20, 2018
"The Longevity Diet," by Dr. Valter Longo, Director of the Longevity Institute at USC. The focus of his lifetime research has been to examine the effects of diet on lifespan. Drawing from molecular biology, the study of centenarians worldwide, and experimental research on animals and humans, he concludes that our modern diet and constant consumption have thwarted the body’s innate ability to regenerate itself at the cellular and organ levels. Caloric deprivation is part of our evolutionary heritage; our bodies are programmed to “reboot” in response to periods of nutritional insufficiency. But long-term caloric restriction (CR) has proven a mixed bag; it leaves some individuals frail and immuno-suppressed. As a healthier, more practical and more palatable alternative, he proposes a fasting mimicking diet (FMD), which restricts nutrient intake just enough for short intervals to switch on the body’s repair and rejuvenation capabilities. The FMD has demonstrated efficacy for weight loss, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, MS and Alzheimer’s; it may have broader applications to inflammatory and auto-immune disorders that are associated with aging. How often should the FMD be implemented? How does the Prolon program of FMD foods harness the benefits of periodic fasting without the risks associated with traditional fasts? What’s the ideal anti-aging diet for otherwise healthy adults? How can the FMD complement the benefits of standard cancer treatments? Why should protein-restriction be less rigorously applied to older individuals? Can time-restricted feeding (TRF) capture some of the benefits of fasting? Can TRF be taken too far?

The Link Between Diet and Inflammation, Part 1
August 31, 2017
Dr. David Seaman, author of "The DeFlame Diet," was the first to identify the link between diet and inflammation in a landmark 2002 journal article entitled: "The diet-induced pro-inflammatory state." What medical disorders are caused by inflammation? What is "inflamm-aging"? How do foods drive inflammation in the body? Dr. Seaman highlights sugars, flour products, and vegetable oils as the main culprits. Contrary to popular belief, he contends, meats are not generally pro-inflammatory. What foods constitute "dietary crack"? Can certain foods like gluten and dairy stoke inflammation in susceptible individuals? What foods are anti-inflammatory? How do sleep, exercise, and stress affect our inflammation levels? Why does excess body fat perpetuate inflammation? Click HERE for part 2.
