A long-lived diet promises a good balance of vegetables, grains, meat and even fats such as oils and chocolate

New Delhi: If you want to live more than 100 years and still look young and healthy, follow the newly conceived Longevity diet, which promises a good balance of vegetables, grains, meats and even fats like oils and chocolate.
ABC news says the Longevity Diet is a series of eating recommendations put together by a biochemist named Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at the University of Southern California.
Longo is known for his research on the role of fasting, the effects of nutrients on genes, and how they can affect aging and disease risk. Although the longevity diet is aimed at older adults, according to Longo, it is also recommended for younger people.

Longo says he plans to live to be 120 by following this diet.

With a longevity diet, the amount of protein intake depends on the person’s body weight. “It is recommended that you consume no more than 0.68-0.80 grams of protein per kg per day,” Longo wrote in his paper.

Longo says the main foods in Longevity Diet are vegetables with leafy greens, fruits, nuts, beans, olive oil and seafood that are low in mercury. Since most of the food groups in this diet are plant-based, it is full of minerals and vitamins, dietary fiber and antioxidants, and is lower in fat and sodium.

Excess meat and dairy products and sugars with a high content of processed sugars are not recommended according to the Longevity Diet.

According to Longo, following the Longevity diet would also ensure that you don’t eat anything for three to four hours before bedtime.

Another approach is to eat less than two to three thousand kilojoules two days a week and eat normally the other five days.

The practice, Longo says, will lead to better control of blood glucose levels, reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
