The “Geek Bar” above can be found on every page that contains more advanced nutritional information. Sliding the marker from green-to-yellow-to-red will increase the amount of detail provided on each topic.
This program is designed to slow the aging process using the latest information uncovered in the field of gerontology. Every effort is made to include nutrient-dense ingredients that ideally complement each other. The quantity of each ingredient is adjusted based upon its protein, carbohydrate, and fat values, as well as its micronutrient content. One of the key components of any scientifically-based “longevity diet” will be caloric restriction, but with caloric restriction comes the responsibility of carefully selecting ingredients that contain the maximum nutritional value. For example, cutting out essential fats or essential amino acids in order to achieve caloric restriction will cause health problems down the road. We make sure that you have sufficient intake of these nutrients to prevent deficiency issues from occurring. In addition, restricting total calories too much will decrease energy levels and make you feel weak. Our proprietary nutritional software insures that you won’t run into that issue, as each meal will be adjusted to contain the correct number of grams of carbohydrate, fat, and protein. As with all of our programs, we also insure that your intake and internal formation of AGEs (advanced glycation end products) is kept to an absolute minimum, as AGEs have been shown to accelerate the aging process. Since this field is rapidly advancing, your program will be adjusted to incorporate the latest information as it becomes available.
