One way to boost longevity, Longo says, is the five-day Fasting Mimicking Diet (FMD), which does away with the hungry feelings characteristic of other fasting diets. The FMD may also lower your risk for certain diseases, like dementia.

Longo also talks about the "five pillars of longevity" and why it's important to consider these specific areas of research when designing the best food plan for a longer life.
