Eat the foods to help you live longer . . .

THIS is the internationally bestselling, clinically tested, revolutionary AND straightforward diet to help you slow-down ageing, fight disease and lose weight.

Following 30 years of research Professor Valter Longo - a biochemist and one of the world's leading researchers into ageing - has investigated genetics, nutrition and stem cells to discover that the secret of longevity lies in cellular regeneration triggered by a special diet. He is now able to reveal how, by adhering to his fasting-mimicking diet we heal ourselves through food.

Dr Valter Longo's healthy, lifespan-extending programme is based on an easy-to-adopt lifetime plan, coupled with a fasting-mimicking diet 3-4 times a year, and just 5 days at a time, that gives all the health benefits of fasting without the hunger. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's Five Pillars of Longevity, The Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier and more fulfilled life.

Try easy, plant-and-fish based recipes that use phenomenal, livelong ingredients . . .

  • Great for the heart and rich in antioxidants: black rice with courgette and shrimp with a mixed green salad, sweet tomatoes and carrots drizzled in balsamic vinegar
