Although the fasting-mimicking diet is an invention of Dr. Walter Longo, there are more and more protocols that teach how to get to autophagy by controlling the diet. By autophagy , we literally mean a process of self-phagocytosis at the cellular level.
The cells are forced to feed on old and damaged parts of cells, for example the mitochondria, and so make a clean sweep.
It is, as explained by the scientist Guido Kroemer , recently awarded for his research, of scavenger cells.
This would be the key to living a long time, reducing the risk of disease and having a good weight and excellent energy levels.
And autophagy is the secret of Dr. Longo’s fasting-mimicking diet .
AUTOPHAGIA DIET: THE PROTOCOLS TO LIVE LONG AND IN SHAPE
But there are other dietary protocols that can give us the same results with a greater choice of foods, the important thing is to do them every day following certain rules , or at least for five days a week.
This is the case of the autophagy diet by Siim Land , a young entrepreneur and anthropologist who has gathered a team of nutritionists and medical researchers to study the effects of the diet on longevity. Author of the book ” Metabolic Autophagy “, Land has a youtube channel and a podcast (Body Mind Emporwement) in which he interviews all the researchers and scientists who deal with autophagy, bacterial flora, chronodiet, intermittent fasting.
In his book he recommends a diet to be able to start this process and fight cellular aging, also linked to obesity and overweight. On page two, his autophagy diet. (CONTINUED ON PAGE TWO).
