Researchers from the University of Southern California presented a 5-day fasting-mimicking diet. According to Times of India, it allows you to reduce your biological age without changing your lifestyle.

What is a fasting mimicking diet?

This is a 5-day diet that is high in unsaturated fat and low in total calories, protein and carbohydrates. It mimics the effect of fasting while providing the body with essential nutrients and making it easier for people to fast.

It was developed by Professor Valter Longo in the laboratory of the Leonard Davis School at the University of Southern California. To study the effect of the diet on people, two clinical studies were conducted. Men and women aged from 18 to 70 took part in each of them.

The fasting-mimicking diet consisted of plant-based soups, energy bars, energy drinks, chips, and tea for 5 days. In addition, patients took supplements high in minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. Patients in the control groups were asked to eat a regular or Mediterranean diet.


“This is the first study to show that a food-based intervention that does not require chronic changes in diet or other lifestyle choices can make people biologically younger. It is based both on changes in risk factors for aging and disease, and on the method of estimating biological age developed by Levin’s group,” Longo explained.

Clinical studies have shown that participants who followed this diet decreased their biological age by an average of 2,5 years.
