Since fasting is "hard for people" and "can also be dangerous," researchers led by University of Southern California's (USC) Valter Longo developed a "complex diet" which mimics fasting and "triggers the same effects in the body." The test, performed on middle aged mice, showed a variety of benefits including "starving out cancer cells."
Bimonthly cycles that lasted four days of an FMD which started at middle age extended life span, reduced the incidence of cancer, boosted the immune system, reduced inflammatory diseases, slowed bone mineral density loss and improved the cognitive abilities of older mice tracked in the study. The total monthly calorie intake was the same for the FMD and control diet groups, indicating that the effects were not the result of an overall dietary restriction.
