Fasting improves metabolism, sleep quality and longevity

fasting for health and longevity

Another interview that shows the benefits of fasting – 12 to 13 hours a day. I’ve tried it – it’s not that hard. Just calculate about 12 hours from the time you had dinner, and then start thinking about breakfast 😉

Interesting take from the interview, on nutrition:

We studied the diet of Italian children — everyone said that high obesity rates were due to sugary drinks. But we found that the problem wasn’t soda or juice… it was based almost entirely on diet. Pasta, pizza, potatoes, beef – kids were eating heavy starches and three to four times more protein than the recommended amount. Banning things isn’t the solution, health education is.

Here’s the interview with Valter Longo, from El País.
