In recent years, scientists have honed in on mTOR as a key modulator of aging and age-related diseases. Finding ways to inhibit mTOR has become a hot topic as a potential way to extend human lifespan. A new study published in the National Library of Health found that two diet strategies appear to effectively inhibit mTOR and might help you add years to your life. They observed that the ketogenic diet, or keto, a high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carbohydrate food plan, appears to extend life. Likewise, intermittent fasting, or eating all your food for the day within a narrow window of time, or alternate-day fasting, also appear to increase longevity.
