With its roots in longevity research, fasting research has come a long way and is one of the hottest topics in nutrition today. However, there are limited evidence-based resources on how fasting works as well as the benefits of fasting. In this presentation, the participant will learn about the origin of fasting and its connection to longevity as well as the current evidence to support fasting in clinical practice.
The CPE associated with this activity is valid until September 11th, 2023.
- 8.3.6 Keeps abreast of current nutrition and dietetics knowledge and trends.
- 10.2.1 Identifies and selects valid and reliable tools to conduct a comprehensive nutrition assessment.
- 10.2.6 Effectively communicates findings and nutrition diagnoses to clients and the health care team.
- Define and describe the difference between fasting and biological fasting.
- Identify the proposed mechanisms associated with fasting and how nutrients can interact with these mechanisms.
- Detail the evidence to support the clinical implementation of fasting and fasting mimicking diets as a tool to promote metabolic balance and wellness.
Valter Longo PhD
Valter Longo, PhD, is the Edna Jones Professor in Gerontology and Professor in Biological Science. He is also the Director of the USC Longevity Institute. He is interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms of aging in yeast, mice and humans by using genetics and biochemistry techniques. He is also interested in identifying the molecular pathways conserved from simple organisms to humans that can be modulated to protect against multiple stresses and treat or prevent cancer, Alzheimer's Disease and other diseases of aging. The focus is on the signal transduction pathways that regulate resistance to oxidative damage in yeast and mice.
