Fasting can be an important clinical tool to promote patient health. There are various approaches to fasting, which allows for the use of the most appropriate therapeutic application for each patient. Intermittent fasting strategies such as periodic fasting mimicking diets have a range of potential health benefits and may improve physical and mental health through multiple pathways, from triggering autophagy to enhancing mitochondrial health. On this episode of Pathways to Well-Being, our guest Valter Longo, PhD, discusses the research into mechanisms behind the fasting mimicking diet and how fasting interventions impact disease risk factors and aging. Dr. Longo is also a plenary presenter at IFM’s AIC 2021 exploring new insights into fasting and the fasting-mimicking diet.
