Editorial Reviews:

Roy L. Walford, MD, (1924-2004), CR pioneer, author of Maximum Lifespan and Beyond the 120-Year Diet:

Giving this diet a try is something that I, as a physician, and as a researcher . . . would very strongly recommend.

Stephen R. Spindler, PHD, Professor of Biochemistry, University of California, Riverside:
This book is a valuable tool for those interested in living a longer, healthier life.

Bill Sardi, Knowledge of Heath, Inc., author of The Anti-Aging Pill and How to Live 100 Years without Growing Old:
Offers a new way of living. . . . It helps readers mull over a commitment to themselves to live long and healthy.

Book Description:
At last, a book that synthesizes the increasingly popular concept of calorie restriction (CR)--a life-extending eating strategy with "profound and sustained beneficial effects," according to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The Longevity Diet offers clear, straightforward principles for devising an effective eating regimen to live longer and reduce the risks of virtually all the diseases of aging. The concept is simple and flexible---eat fewer calories and choose foods carefully. And it is supported by science: studies on lab mice and other mammals have led to lifespans the human equivalent of which are over 140 years, and many suggest that the benefits extend to humans. Longtime CR practitioners and experts Brian M. Delaney and Lisa Walford clearly explain the relevant health and nutrition guidelines and provide all of the tools you need to make the appropriate dietary changes. The results can be dramatic: those who follow CR have quickly lowered their cholesterol and blood pressure and reduced body fat. Find out why a growing number of people are choosing the Longevity Diet lifestyle and let this book empower you to achieve a lifetime of healthy eating and living--whether your priorities are to live longer, reduce disease risks, lose weight, or simply feel and look healthier.

About the Author:
BRIAN M. DELANEY is the president of the Calorie Restriction Society. He lives in Florida and Sweden. LISA WALFORD is coauthor, with Dr. Roy L. Walford, of The Anti-Aging Plan. She lives in Venice, California.

This sort of thing will sexualise cake and chocolate even more...can't someone invent a calorie free cake? That TASTES like cake with frosting? Or Belgian chocolate truffles? Why is it that celery is a no-caloie food but tastes of nothing ...taste buds are cruel ..maybe someone could do something to alter taste bud needs...
