This week, we’re discussing the recommendations made by Valter Longo in his book “The Longevity Diet.” We’re talking through the nine principles of the diet, why we should be hesitant to extrapolate too much from mice studies, the benefits of prolonged fasting, and more.

Topics include:
• The Longevity Diet by Valter Longo (and 9 principles)
• The problems with low-protein intake and periodic prolonged fasting
• Evidence for/against IGF-1 and cancer
• Evidence for/against protein and cancer
• Evidence for/against prolonged fasting and health/longevity
