Extremely simple approach- which imo could be slightly improved if a person logged their intake into the chronometer for micronutrient intake and slightly adjust some foods and supplements accordingly.

Like Josh Mittledorf eats: Beans and Greens and lots of nuts!👍👍

 It seems to be a protein-restricted diet.

To be rigorous, it's a normo-proteic diet, in the intention of Walter Longo, that is he adheres to the 0.8 g/kg/d from Randd et al, 2002, which we cited many times.

In many of his talks and podcasts, Longo insists that too little protein may be harmful, even as too many, except after the age of 65, when he suggests to increase protein intake to avoid sarcopenia.

That's the general rule, but we discussed about the fine details, like, the age 65 years is not at all a precise benchmark, also an hyperproteic diet after that age may be avoided by exercising every day (with weights) in such a manner producing local IGF-1, also called MGF, mechano-growth factor.

Not to mention the point I raised innumerable times, that is that optimum protein intake is a random variable, depending on the individual setup and activities and environment. My conclusion is that it's not possible to know which is the optimum protein intake, unless under clinical trial conditions or unless we are trained to listen carefully to the neurological signals.

Last but not least, optimum for longevity might not be the same as optimum for efficiency.
