You know, people are always asking me for recommendations about how to live longer, healthier lives.

Well, if you read my book, The Longevity Paradox, you might already know my answer.

Because one thing that can dramatically boost your healthspan (and even your lifespan) is something called a 5-day vegan fast. In fact, this simple technique is like taking your mitochondria on a 5-day spa retreat (good news – you can still eat on this fast)

And my guest is one of the biggest proponents of this type of fas-mimicking. Dr. Joseph Antoun is the CEO of L-Nutra, which focuses on providing people with the knowledge and tools to live to 110 and beyond.

On this episode, Dr. Antoun and I talk about shifting away from “sick care;” how a fast-mimicking diet can help YOU live your longest, fullest life; and why most of the foods we’re eating these days are actually LESS nutritious than they used to be.

On this episode you’ll learn:

  • The unfortunate truth about the United State’s “sick-care system”, how it’s impacting YOUR health, and what you can do to protect yourself and your family (2:00)
  • Why the nutrition content of most food decreases EVERY year – and the trick to maintaining a high-quality, nutritionally-dense diet (14:00)
  • Why fasting WORKS when it comes to weight loss (and even has potential to extend your lifespan) – and how to determine which fasting technique is right for you (17:00)
  • The fasting mistake made by most Americans – and the change you need to make to better support your health and manage your weight (25:00)
  • Why Dr. Antoun says THIS is the best thing you can do for your health – and one simple step you can take today (28:00)
  • How to get ALL the benefits of fasting… while EATING (This is not a trick!) (30:00)
  • Why your body actually needs STRESS (the good kind at least) – and how it can dramatically impact your health (41:00)
  • Why “gluten-free” labels are incredibly misleading – and the best way to avoid gluten entirely (44:00)
