How to live to 100, Dr. Valter Longo

The Kevin Rose Show
Episode artwork
Read more

Dr. Valter Longo is director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan. In this podcast, we discuss Dr. Longo's new book, The Longevity Diet, which is the culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe. Dr. Longo has put together a powerful combination of fasting and diet. The diet is that of centenarians (people living 100+ years) combined along with with the scientifically engineered 5-day fasting-mimicking diet (or FMD), done just 3-4 times a year. Dr. Longo designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific micro-fasts can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce the risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Full show notes here.

The Tony Robbins Podcast

Heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes and obesity are plaguing the country. Nearly half of all adults in the United States have one such health condition, while 25% have two or more of these chronic illnesses. And as of now, we are spending close to 20% of our nation’s GDP on disease management. But here’s the thing - chronic diseases are also among the most preventable of all health problems. In this episode of the Tony Robbins Podcast, we sit down with Chris Kresser - a globally recognized leader in the fields of ancestral health, Paleo nutrition, and functional and integrative medicine. Chris has been studying, practicing, and teaching alternative medicine for more than fifteen years. He has trained with world-renowned healers and educators in a variety of disciplines throughout the U.S., Thailand, and Indonesia. His website, ChrisKresser.com is one of the top 25 natural health sites in the world, and his book, Your Personal Paleo Code, was a New York Times best seller.  Chris helps us explore the practice of functional medicine and how environment and behavior can have serious implications when it comes to some of the most chronic health issues. He delves into gut bacteria, diet myths, sugar, and carbs. And he discusses just why the current system of health care is focused on treating symptoms, when the focus should really be on addressing the underlying causes of the problem. There is a profound connection between diet and disease, and Chris helps shed light on what we can do to and the changes we can start making right now to achieve a better sense of health and well-being.
