Valter Longo must be one of the most interviewed guys in the latest coupla years. I just listened to the stemtalk interview (Ken Ford is usually biased on the ketogenic diet, but he's been evidently able to overcome this bias), where new aspects on his proposals are underlined: IGF-1 and its sweet spot, local and general IGF-1. No coffe when fasting and when on his FMD. One pretty interesting issue is that about the 'phantom carbon sources', nutrients which are utilized by the body but not recognized as nutrients. Fibers? Else? I googled 'phantom carbon sources' but found no relevant results so far . https://www.ihmc.us/stemtalk/episode-64-valter-longo-talks-about-the-fasting-mimicking-diet-and-the-keys-to-longevity/
Valter Longo's work has been discussed around here quite frequently as of late, particularly his work on the fasting mimicking diet. In typical Rich Roll fashion, he goes long form and tries to gain deep insight into Longo's understanding of nutrition, longevity, and health. Rich says that he considers it one of his most important conversations to date.
I'm sure this movie will be of interest to many CR members. I just watched it and thought it was an interesting film that included the pros/cons of fasting. The movie talks about many different forms of fasting (IF, TRF, multi-day water fasts, juice fasts, etc.). It includes appearances from many big names including Valter Longo, Alan Goldhammer, and many more. Before I muddy the waters and give my thoughts, I would be curious as to what others think. The cost to rent it is relatively inexpensive. The movie can be viewed here: http://fastingmovie.com/
