There is a big difference between health span and life span
Health span is defined as the longevity minus years of disability. Increasing your health span is the key for achieving healthy aging. At the molecular level, increasing your health span means reducing diet-induced inflammation.
Eating fewer calories with adequate protein is another key to healthy aging
Calorie-restriction with adequate protein is another key to healthy aging. The Zone Diet makes that feasible.
Reducing excess free radicals by eating less is the last key to healthy aging
The Zone Diet with supplemental intake of polyphenols is the last dietary key to healthy aging. As Hippocrates said 2,500 years ago, “let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food.” Following the Zone Diet and using select anti-inflammatory supplements makes that ancient wisdom easily achievable today.
