Fasting-Mimicking Diet Can Cut Your Risk of Cancer, Heart Disease, and Diabetes

According to a recent study, executed by the team of scientists from UCLA’s Longevity Institute, a fasting-mimicking diet can cut your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. This diet includes fasting for just 5 days a month.fasting-mimicking diet

In the study, one hundred adults aged between 20 and 70 took part. The participants were divided into two groups: 71 started a 3-month cycle of a fasting-mimicking diet, low in calories, sugars, and protein, but high in unsaturated fats. The rest of the participants ate normally. The experimental group fasted for 5 days once a month during the 3-month period. After the end of the experiment, the indicators for cardiovascular disease declined, blood pressure became healthier, and inflammation fell in the experimental group.

Study co-author Valter Longo, Ph. D., director of the USC Longevity Institute, says: “This study provides evidence that people can experience significant health benefits through a periodic, fasting-mimicking diet that is designed to act on the aging process.”
