The seven-day “Pioppi Diet” plan that extends life by 10 years

The 'Pioppi Diet' Could Transform Your Health and Help You Reach Your 100th Birthday (In Stock)

From starting each day with a spoonful of apple cider vinegar to eating eggs for breakfast, this seven-day Pioppi diet plan will add 10 years to your life.

Pioppi in southern Italy has been called the “healthiest village in the world”, with residents often living 10 years longer than elsewhere, up to 100 years.

Although bacon and chocolate form the basis of their diet, its inhabitants’ love of vegetables, fatty fish and nuts is thought to prevent them from developing heart disease or type 2 diabetes.

Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra and former athlete Donal O’Neill have created the seven-day meal plan below to adapt the Pioppi Diet, protected by UNESCO as the Home of the Mediterranean Diet, to suit the average Western urbanite. .

In addition to consuming plenty of olive oil for its heart-healthy benefits, the diet also includes starting each day with a spoonful of apple cider vinegar, which is thought to help acid reflux, lower blood pressure, and promote weight loss.

The diet also includes eggs most days, which are a good source of protein to keep hunger at bay. He also recommends intermittent fasting by limiting your “eating window” to just eight to nine hours a day. Red wine is allowed provided it is of good quality.

In a piece for Get The Gloss Dr. Aseem and Donal share an excerpt from their book ‘The Pioppi Diet: A 21-day Lifestyle Plan’ which explains how to incorporate the life-prolonging plan into your everyday life.
