Five day ‘fasting’ diet slows down ageing and may add years to life (The Telegraph)

The Telegraph (UK) published a story about research by Valter Longo of the USC Leonard Davis School on the benefits of a fasting-mimicking diet. “Strict fasting is hard for people to stick to, and it can also be dangerous, so we developed a complex diet that triggers the same effects in the body,” Longo said. “I’ve personally tried both, and the fasting mimicking diet is a lot easier and also a lot safer.”
