The concept of controlled intermittent fasting, aka Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), was the basis for a landmark study recently published in the peer reviewed Journal – Cell Metabolism. Results showed that “Three FMD cycles decreased risk factors/biomarkers for aging, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer without major adverse effects, providing support for the use of FMDs to promote healthspan.” Garnering major media attention is “The 5-Day Fast Diet”, which was developed following the guidelines of the latest research referenced above out of the USC Longevity Lab. It incorporates and refines those guidelines.
