Longevity diet has two meanings.
One means the specific diet that is called this name, which restricts calorie intake and encourages nutrient-rich food. The other means the food principles lie behind longevity and health.
The Diet encourages taking up to 40% less calories than the USDA recommendation and promises mental agility and physical vigor when we reach our eighties and beyond.
Its emphasis is health, not weight loss. But people who take this diet serious can be very, very thin. It's under nutrition but not malnutrition. The result, according its report, is that it radically lessens the chances of getting major diseases and other ailments that come with aging. (You may find its recipes among many free online diets.)
I personally think this might be true, but it's kind of extreme. I like the health principles better and have benefited from them.
"One of the best tools for longevity and good health is not just taking a walk outdoors but taking a walk while holding the hand of God." - Philosophy Grace Quotes
