(Pdf/E–book) [La dieta della longevita] author Valter Longo
Oil 25 protein of vegetal origin The definition is completely asymmetric calories rams 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 eneral 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 Berlioz and His Century: An Introduction to the Age of Romanticism given in the textIn some instances the text is unnecessarily egocentric No problem with citing and explaining dataenerated by the author but I don t see the need of repeating in each sentence that he and his roup 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 and may ive readers 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process and this is the kind of science that has an immediate application for health Some of the ideas presented as unpublished in the book have been recently published in top scientific journals in 2017 I cannot but believe that he is completely right And actually it makes perfect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 ibidem etcI conclude that if this book had been written it could become a major reference in recent science The information enerated 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. 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. .
N the this book is for you otherwise it will leave you with few uestionsI absolutely love that there are two weeks worth of recipes at the end of the book breakfast lunch snack dinner and especially the lunch and dinner options sound really nice so I m oing to Awakening Spaces: French Caribbean Popular Songs, Music, and Culture give all these a try The breakfast options will be a bit tougher for me because I can tet the breads that are suggested here in SingaporeIf you already read Why We Sleep and The Circadian Code I would say this book is not necessary to read I trust Dr Longo s research he s a recognized expert but I don t think this Plan Is Very Useful To is very useful to 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 week OkaySo my problems with the Fasting Mimicking Diet is that it s super hard Mind you I ve done every other day fasting for three months then I fell off and I ve done time restricted eating not eating for 16 hours and eating for 8 So my objection about difficulty is not fasting per se It #s that eating 800 calories a day for 5 days sounds harder than a water # that eating 800 calories a day for 5 days sounds harder than a water for 5 days because hunger actually decreases on a real fast This low calorie diet results in constant hunger for 5 days So maybe I d actually try what he recommends but just substitute a water fast I am not a doctor so you definitely should not follow any of my ideas or adviceThen I also have a number of objection about the OPTIONAL ProLon product they sell just the food measured out for the 5 days so it s a no brainer for you1 Anytime you re trying to sell me something I lose trust in the science even though it is tempered in this case by the fact that Longo claims
to make no personal profit2 prolon isn t make no personal profit2 ProLon isn t food but packets of things you mix or whatever Yuck3 It s super expensive 250 a box one box lasts for the one month 5 day fast unless you buy a year supply in advance No Just noA counterargument to my complaints 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 Edge of Venomverse 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 Theoal 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 Alliance Rising: The Hinder Stars I (Alliance-Union Universe) 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 ofood fats nuts. 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. I thought this book make a pretty darned convincing case in favor of a vegetarian or pescetarian diet if living a long time is high on your list of priorities Unfortunately that s not how I and most of the people I know currently eat It seems like everyone and their dog is
doing keto these days According to this book a diet high in animal fats and proteins is the keto these days According to this book a diet high in animal fats and proteins is the worst diet for human longevity At least both sides agree on one thing sugar and processed carbs aren t ood for you The book also discusses how periodic fasting not the currently trendy intermittent fasting but actual fasting for a few days can have amazing health benefits for all sorts of serious conditions including cancer diabetes and auto immune disorders It provides a way to mimic fasting by reatly reducing your caloric intake for a few days without actually full on fasting This fasting mimicking diet supposedly offers the same health benefits as full fasting I have not tried it myselftl dr diet should consist of 60% complex carbs 30% ood fats 10% protein all of which should come from vegetable or fish sources Fast for a
few days a few times a year EDIT After reading The Big Fat Surprise I days a few times a year EDIT After reading The Big Fat Surprise I 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 The Big Fat Surprise and therefore renders this book completely useless I m a bit conflicted about this bookFirst of all the author starts right off with advertising some nutrition product of his but thankfully that will be it no sales pitches throughout the rest of the bookNext after DESCRIBING HIS METHODOLOGY THERE ARE NUMEROUS his methodology there are numerous about cancer diabetes dementia cardiovascular diseases and autoimmune diseases which all result in essentially exactly the same conclusion with ever so slight changes in the food intake recommendation It seems extremely repetitiveI can t help but think that the author published this book as an elevator pitch to attract investors to further fund the author s various scientific studies which is OK I uess as these studies all seem to have very promising resultsI liked that the book reinforced what I had already learned from The Circadian Code a better book namely that time restricted eating works wonders however this book focuses much on the WHAT to eat rather than WHEN to eatThe thing is the author recommends a hard core vegan version of the mediterranean diet with a bit of fish here and there Simply because he is Italian and Blue Guide got to know a bunch of very old people from a small village near his home town It seems extremely dangerous to assume that whatever these people ate must beood simply because the sample size is so tiny These people clearly had extremely ood enesThe author even recommends eat what your ancestors ate and I m pretty sure the diet of the old people in Okinawa looked nothing like the mediterranean diet so how would an Asian person approach this book I Birth and Fortune: The Impact of Numbers on Personal Welfare guess if you are Italia.
