Dr. Valter Longo's personal approach to fasting and weight management

Parent Episode: Valter Longo, Ph.D. on the Fasting-Mimicking Diet & Fasting for Longevity, Cancer & Multiple Sclerosis

Time-restricted eating and fasting can be effective strategies for losing weight and optimizing longevity. In conjunction with a restricted eating window, meal frequency can also play a role. Two meals a day may be optimal for individuals who are predisposed to gaining weight while people not prone to weight gain may prefer to eat three times a day. This eating pattern is powerful and uncomplicated. However, food is a meaningful part of happiness and celebration, so allowing for some flexibility in dietary patterns is important. In this clip, Dr. Valter Longo describes his approach to fasting and his philosophy that if an eating protocol is too regimented people will abandon it.
