With all the advances we’re seeing in technology, extending our life span has never seemed more achievable than it is today. I’ve even spoken to some guests here on SOG who believe we’re closer to living to 200 years than we all might think we are!
And that’s all great, but what are some ways we can start increasing our life spans NOW? What steps can we take today that will pay dividends in the long run for us when it comes to increasing the probability we live longer? One huge way is through our diet. By eating the foods that work with our bodies and not against them like so many processed foods do, we’re able to improve the odds of a longer, healthier life.
My guest today is a leader in the field of nutrition and dieting. His name is Dr. Walter Longo and he’s dedicated his career to finding ways we can unlock our life longevity through our diets. I’m so excited to share this one with you all. Please help me welcome the one-and-only, Dr. Walter Longo, to The School of Greatness!
Valter Longo, Ph.D., has thirty years of experience in the field of longevity and healthy eating. He is the Director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California – Leonard Davis School of Gerontology, Los Angeles, and the Director of the Longevity and Cancer Program at the IFOM, The Italian Foundation for Cancer Research (FIRC) Institute of Molecular Oncology in Milan, Italy.
He is the author of the best-seller “The Longevity Diet” and the 2 Italian books “Alla tavola della longevità” (“At the Table of Longevity”), and “La longevità inizia da bambini” (“Longevity Begins in Childhood”). Professor Longo is also the scientific director of the Create Cures Foundation and the Valter Longo Foundation. In 2018, TIME Magazine named Professor Longo as one of the 50 most influential people in health care for his research on fasting-mimicking diets as a way to improve health and prevent disease.
