On August 31, 2018, Next Avenue published the latest column by AFAR Scientific Director Steven Austad, Ph.D.

It’s Not Just What You Eat -- It’s When You Eat” explores how mice studies have shown the impact of fasting on healthspan and resilience. Dr. Austad spotlights the research on fast-mimicking diets, caloric restriction, and the body’s Circadian rhythm, advanced by two AFAR experts:

• 2013 Vincent Cristofalo Rising Star Award in Aging Research recipient Valter D. Longo, Ph.D.
• 2014 Julie Martin Mid-Career Award in Aging Research recipient Satchidananda Panda, Ph.D.

“Led by AFAR-supported researchers, discoveries about the advantages of short-term, periodic fasts in mice have led to a number of fasting-based diets that are now being tested for their health-enhancing effects in humans,” Dr. Austad states.
