Getting older doesn't have to mean experiencing more pain and illness, becoming less mobile, or developing disease. Renowned cardiovascular research scientist and doctor of pharmacy Dr. James DiNicolantonio partners with leading physician and bestselling author Dr. Jason Fung to deliver The Longevity Solution, a groundbreaking new book that unlocks the secrets of healthy aging. Using evidence drawn from their years of medical research and clinical practice, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung lay out five simple, easy-to-follow steps you can take now for a longer, fuller, healthier life.

The Longevity Solution explains how to incorporate time-honored wellness traditions while doing away with fads, unnecessary supplements, and unsubstantiated wellness practices. It investigates the dietary habits and other practices of the healthiest, longest-lived humans on the planet, who live in regions known as Blue Zones, as a model for what and how we should eat. It teaches the benefits of intermittent fasting and calorie restriction, which have been shown to slow the aging process, while consuming proper ratios of protein and healthy fats. It also looks at how red wine, tea, and coffee play key roles in optimizing health and why salt is an ally, not an enemy, in the longevity equation.

In this comprehensive guide, Dr. DiNicolantonio and Dr. Fung unveil cutting-edge science in an approachable format that is easy to understand and can be put into practice immediately. Simple dietary changes can help you break the cycle of carbohydrate dependence, kick your metabolism into high gear, and jump-start your longevity genes. The Longevity Solution puts healthy aging back in your control!

Beware of books offering a solution or cure for aging. Especially those who claim it all scientific and have done tonnes of research. BAH.
Aging is not a disease and it can't be cured.
It is particularly dangerous to follow any fad diet or advice when you get older. You can do lots of damage to your aging body doing this.
Listen to your body and simple is best. Moderate exercise, food high in nutrients, laughter and less stress. Good sleep. Pretty well sums it up, you don't need a book. The latest science often translates into the latest get rich for the doctors fad.
And all books on aging contradict each other on what is best.

I found Dr. Fung's book "The Obesity Code" to be much more interesting and more helpful. This book laid out some interesting material without giving much assistance in terms of how to implement except by buying recommended products (really!) There's a lot better out there.
