Dr. Valter Longo, a renowned biogerontologist and longevity expert, created ahealthspan-supportive diet intervention called the fasting-mimicking diet (FMD), after 20 years of research. The scientifically designed 5-day plant-based diet is limited in calories, high in fat, and low in sugar. It is supposed to mimic the health benefits of fasting while still supplying nutrients. Research suggests that the diet:

  • Supports healthy aging

Currently, the diet is a proprietary formulation available for sale. To read more visit
