Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones and The Blue Zones Solution has revealed that the world’s longest living people have lived lifestyles over the past 100 years that help them and others lead healthier and more fulfilling lives.
One of these lifestyles includes their diets. Buettner’s teams have helped thousands of people lose weight and reverse disease by changing the way they live, eat, and connect with each other. Ultimately, these changes can transform your health and help you live longer.
The basis of this diet at a glance:
- Rich in “healthy” fats including olive oil and omega-3 fatty acids.
- Vegetables abound; meat is minor.
- Loads of beneficial herbs.
- Moderate drinking.
- Practice of a slower pace of life with a strong social connection.
FYI: There is a new book by Dan Buettner called The Blue Zones Kitchen: 100 recipes to live to 100. The information is priceless and the photographs are stunning (provided by David McLain and National Geographic).
