5.0 out of 5 starsGentle method of fasting
Reviewed in Canada on August 4, 2020
I was interested in his five day low calorie version of fasting and had great success with the process. I still do OMAD (one meal a day) most days, but sometimes I do this long fast as well as three day water fasting. It helps me heal injuries and inflammation and is not as brutal as the water fast.
I'm not convinced after the reading. Seems more like a Mediterranean diet derivative with a vegetarian focus. No notion of inflammation that may be caused by carbs or gluten as proved by many scientific research.
1.0 out of 5 starsA book is better than an actual add, right?

This hurts. I've admired Dr. Longo's ingenuity, creativity and genius for a while now. Loved one of his documentaries on FireStick...watched podcasts and interviews. Loved each and every single one of them.
Then I bought this book. It all fell appart for me. I'd have returned it if it wasn't because I had earmarked a few pages.
First few parts of the book are mostly autobiographical. Call me crazy but I was not that interested in that portion of the book. I mean, he's lead a very rich life, I just don't want to pay to hear about it. Tell me all about it over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, for free.
The rest of the book is a huge sale on his Prolon FMD product. Which is fine. I'd would have loved to know what I was getting myself into before actually paying to buy advertising.
IF, and that is a big IF, you are not familiar at all with fasting and its benefits it will serve you better to watch his documentary. Also, there is another great documentary about fasting, etc. called The Science of Fasting. Both are great.
IF you are unable to fast for health or weight loss due to health issues or social issues or whatever, then sure, you can pay to get the FMD Prolon info from his book ...or...you could get it for free on his website.
Hope this helps someone not waste their hard earned pesos.
1.0 out of 5 starsIts the same book as of nearly 2 years ago

I bought The Longevity Diet: Slow Aging, Fight Disease, Optimize Weight thinking it would be update on his previous book of just under 2 years because the title was slightly different. No the only thing that's changed is the cover. I see some customers are buying both books as well.

Excellent book, Dreadfully bound 🧐

Dreadful binding on the book, pages fall out extremely easily just by turning them. Frustrating as it’s such an interesting read.

Reviewed in Italy on August 14, 2018
È tutto concentrato sull'assunzione del suo prodotto Prolon. È vero che i ricavi sono devoluti alla ricerca, ma visto che ProLon costa circa 300 euro, chi può permetterseli alla settimana? Ben pochi direi. Non da alcuna indicazione sul vero digiuno intermittente, né se IF è equivalente alla sua FMD. Io faccio IF da oltre un anno e nessun problema di fame etc. etc. Non mi serve fare una FMD se gli effetti sonon gli stessi. Questo non è affattospecificato nel libro che, ripeto, è tutto centrato su ProPlon e le ricette (monotone e molto tradizionali italiane) a fine libro. I casi di guarigione citati sono gli stessi che si possono leggere in Dr. Greger How Not To Die, e The Starch Solution, etc. Insomma, mi sono pentita dell'acquisto
