Publisher's Summary

Getting older doesn’t have to mean experiencing more pain and illness, becoming less mobile, or developing disease. Renowned cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy Dr. James DiNicolantonio partners with leading physician and bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung to deliver The Longevity Solution, a groundbreaking new book that unlocks the secrets of healthy aging. Using evidence drawn from their years of medical research and clinical practice, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung lay out five simple, easy-to-follow steps you can take now for a longer, fuller, healthier life.

The Longevity Solution explains how to incorporate time-honored wellness traditions while doing away with fads, unnecessary supplements, and unsubstantiated wellness practices. It investigates the dietary habits and other practices of the healthiest, longest-lived humans on the planet, who live in regions known as Blue Zones, as a model for what and how we should eat. It teaches the benefits of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction, which have been shown to slow the aging process, while consuming proper ratios of protein and healthy fats. It also looks at how red wine, tea, and coffee play key roles in optimizing health and why salt is an ally, not an enemy, in the longevity equation.

In this comprehensive guide, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung unveil cutting-edge science in an approachable format that is easy-to-understand and can be put into practice immediately. Simple dietary changes can help you break the cycle of carbohydrate dependence, kick your metabolism into high gear, and jump-start your longevity genes. The Longevity Solution puts healthy aging back in your control! 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Lots of advertising

This book is a good read but the constant advertisements and company name drops does get a little old. I’m a big fan of Dr. Jason Fungs work.. none of his other books had this type of advertisement so I’m going to assume it’s from the other authors.

Fung and DiNicolantonio are on the cutting edge

This is the forth book that I have listened to (and re-listened to) by these two gentlemen. I personally know three people who have followed Dr. Fung's advice and gotten over their type ii diabetes. Together they dispel a great meny myths that have become so much a part of modern medicine and nutrition that they are pervasive in our culture. The vast majority of medical doctors could learn a tremendous amount by reading them. The only think that I found annoying was the rather peculiar pronunciation of a variety of words by the reader (it's "gly - co - gen" not "gly - so - gen", etc.).

Good Info

The information is solid, and covers many very good points. My only complaint is that the narrator mispronounces things constantly. Sometimes it's so bad that I had to listen twice or more, just to figure out what he was talking about.

Longevity Diet Tips

A good resource for understanding how your diet & food impacts your health and aging. At times a lot of technical
Verbiage but some clear themes throughout the book.
