Can what you eat determine how long, and how well, you live? The clinically proven answer is yes, and The Longevity Diet is easier to follow than you'd think. The culmination of 25 years of research on aging, nutrition, and disease across the globe, this unique program lays out a simple solution to living to a healthy old age through nutrition. The key is combining the healthy everyday eating plan the audiobook outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD.

This was a very interesting book that explained the subject of longevity in a straightforward manner and was not bogged down in overly complex jargon. Combine this reading with the many online lectures and guest appearances by Dr Luongo and you'll have a comprehensive grasp of the subject.

Gene Kranz was present at the creation of America's manned space program and was a key player in it for three decades. As a flight director in NASA's Mission Control, Kranz witnessed firsthand the making of history. He participated in the space program from the early days of the Mercury program to the last Apollo mission, and beyond. He endured the disastrous first years when rockets blew up and the United States seemed to fall further behind the Soviet Union in the space race.
