What to eat to live longer

The researchers of University of Southern California (USA) analyzed hundreds of studies on nutrition, disease and longevity, in which both animals and humans participated. They combined this information with their own research on how and what to eat to increase their chances of living a long time. The experts shared their findings in the journal Cell.

The analysis included a wide range of popular calorie-reducing diets, as well as a variety of diets, including Mediterranean, vegetarian, and vegan. Various forms of fasting were also considered, including not eating with short breaks of several hours or for longer periods of time.

The team of scientists found several factors associated with increased life expectancy and some diseases. Among them are the levels of insulin and cholesterol, as well as certain proteins, writes StudyFinds.

In general, the study authors concluded that the secret to a long life lies in the use of moderate or large amounts of unrefined carbohydrates. Describing the longevity diet, the scientists believe the following foods should be included in the diet:

  • Lots of legumes, whole grains and vegetables;
  • A moderate amount of fish and seafood;
  • A small amount of white meat;
  • Minimum of sugar and refined foods;
  • A sufficient amount of nuts and olive oil;
  • A small amount of dark chocolate.

According to the researchers, the diet of centenarians also does not include the use of red or processed meat.

Time frames are also important. Ideally, a person should eat within 11 or 12 hours, which allows for a daily fasting period, the scientists believe.

The diet, however, must be adapted according to gender, age, health status and genetics. Thus, people over 65 years of age need a little more protein to counteract muscle loss.
