Dopo tanti saggi puramente scientifici sulla nutrizione, finalmente un libro che chiarisce l’importanza del mangiare correttamente. Con un linguaggio tecnico, ma comprensibile a tutti, con esempi concreti, con i collegamenti tra storia, evoluzione, scienza e vita di tutti i giorni, si arriva a comprendere come il cibo e la preparazione degli alimenti occupino uno spazio grandissimo del vivere quotidiano. Spesso non ci si accorge di quanto il pensiero del cibo influenzi la mente, né di quanto possa creare turbamento. Non si pensa che l’alimentazione possa influenzare la psiche e non solo la salute. Si deve evidenziare che è molto più facile legarsi al cibo piuttosto che alle persone, che si può amare un dolce o un piatto di pasta, piuttosto che se stessi. Lo scopo di questo libro è arrivare nell’animo del lettore, scuotere la sua coscienza nutrizionale e aiutarlo a curarsi con il cibo, prima che possa recare danni all’organismo.

The internationally renowned, clinically tested, revolutionary diet program to lose weight, fight disease, and live a longer, healthier life. 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 book outlines, with the scientifically engineered fasting-mimicking diet, or FMD; the FMD, done just 3-4 times a year, does away with the misery and starvation most of us experience while fasting, allowing you to reap all the beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet, while avoiding negative stressors, like low energy and sleeplessness. Valter Longo, director of the Longevity Institute at USC and the Program on Longevity and Cancer at IFOM in Milan, designed the FMD after making a series of remarkable discoveries in mice, then in humans, indicating that specific diets can activate stem cells and promote regeneration and rejuvenation in multiple organs to significantly reduce risk for diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease. Longo’s simple pescatarian daily eating plan and the periodic fasting-mimicking techniques can both yield impressive results. Low in proteins and sugars and rich in healthy fats and plant-based foods, The Longevity Diet is proven to help you: • Lose weight and reduce abdominal fat • Extend your healthy lifespan with simple everyday changes • Prevent age-related muscle and bone loss • Build your resistance to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and cancer Longo’s healthy, life span-extending program is based on an easy-to-adopt pescatarian plan along with the fasting-mimicking diet no more than 4 times a year, just 5 days at a time. Including 30 easy recipes for an everyday diet based on Longo's five pillars of longevity, The Longevity Diet is the key to living a longer, healthier, more fulfilled life.

«Obesità e sovrappeso condanneranno l’Umanità all’estinzione» (Steven Hawkins). Questa affermazione inquietante mi ha convinto a scrivere questo breve saggio che riassume una lunga esperienza clinica e di ricerca rivolgendosi agli studenti ed ai laureati in Medicina, Biologia e Dietistica, nonché gli psicologi ed ai cultori della materia spesso oggetto di messaggi deliranti dei `Media’ e delle riviste di basso livello scientifico. Il primo capitolo affronta definizioni, classificazione, patogenesi, epidemiologia ed inquadramento psicologico dell’obesità. Nel secondo capitolo vengono descritte le numerose patologie d’organo che complicano il quadro clinico del paziente obeso. Il terzo capitolo affronta la terapia dell’obesità con particolare riguardo agli aspetti dietologici, farmacologici, psicologici nonché al ruolo della chirurgia bariatrica nel trattamento delle grandi obesità. Infine nell’appendice sono affrontati alcuni aspetti specifici riguardanti l’età evolutiva, la terza età, la dieta vegetariana ed il supporto psicologico necessario per i pazienti sottoposti a chirurgia bariatrica.

'The Diet Myth is fascinating, and now I'm obsessed with microbes!' Nigella Lawson Why do most diets fail? Why does one person eat a certain meal and gain weight, while another eating the same meal loses pounds? Why, despite all the advice about what to eat, are we all still getting fatter? The answers are much more surprising - and fascinating - than we've been led to believe. The key to health and weight loss lies not in the latest fad diet, nor even in the simple mantra of 'eat less, exercise more', but in the microbes already inside us. Drawing on the latest science and his own pioneering research, Professor Tim Spector demystifies the common misconceptions about fat, calories, vitamins and nutrients. Only by understanding what makes our own personal microbes tick can we overcome the confusion of modern nutrition, and achieve a healthy gut and a healthy body.
