Led by Dr. Valter Longo, the USC Longevity Institute unites multidisciplinary aging research approaches in order to enhance the healthy years of life.

3. Continued Diet Change
I recommend the following Books/Diets after Detoxing and removing foods to which you are allergic/sensitive.
"Fat for Fuel" by Dr. Mercola for accelerated weight loss
"Eat Fat Get Thin" by Dr. Hyman for lifestyle change.
4. Implement Fasting Monthly
Time restricted Feeding is when food is ingested in a certain period of time during the day and the person refrains from eating for the other part of the day. A 12 hours per day of no-food intake period would fall into this category.
This method is mainly used for weight loss induced metabolic effects due to the two days of calorie restriction per week.
Periodic fasting has the only fasting regimen that “stresses” the body enough to stimulate a protectionist and rejuvenation mode that the body employs to survive and thrive.
Prolon - 5 day fasting meal-plan with food - order your monthly kit in our office
ProLon® is the first and only Periodic Fasting Mimicking Diet and is scientifically developed, and clinically proven, to induce the protectionist and rejuvenation mode which optimizes metabolic health and decrease age-related risk factors. The rejuvenating effect is the main reason why with ProLon® an individual loses fat very quickly while preserving lean body mass (muscle and bone).
The Fasting Mimicking Diet by ProLon is the first meal program made of healthy natural ingredients that someone consumes for five days – but is not recognized by the body as food. This keeps the body in a fasting mode. In simple terms, it is fasting with food!
5 Day Fast
Fast on your own. You don’t need a pre-packaged box to do a fast mimicking diet. Just stick to the calorie percentages and considered how you’ll space them out each day. Make sure you plan out all the food for the entire fast!
Day 1 1100 calories - 34% carbs, 10% protein, and 56% fat
Day 2-5 800 calories - 47% carbs, 9% protein, and 44% fat for the remaining days.
Black coffee and tea (a cup per day) are typically allowed, although not necessary—and make sure they don’t contain any added creams or sugars (coconut oil is okay if you factor it into macros).
