The Longevity Diet Plan, an exclusive of About.com, is really more of a collection of practical eating guidelines that will help you be successful in changing your eating patterns. Just follow one of the four guidelines below each week to overhaul your diet and begin eating healthy without all the drama of a typical diet.

Who It’s For: Do you want to eat healthier? Do you need to make some changes in your diet, but don’t know where to start? Try the Longevity Diet. You’ll be eating real foods that are delicious. You’ll need to invest some time in cooking and grocery shopping, but none in calorie counting. We’ll give you simple rules, you follow them and you’ll be healthier every day. The mission of the plan is to get you on the road to eating healthier (this is not a weight loss plan).

What You’ll Do: We give, then we take away. Each week, you’ll make two changes to your diet. One change will involve adding something to your diet, the other change will involve removing or reducing something. After four weeks, you’ll have eight simple rules about the foods you should and should not eat. That’s all you’ll need to remember –- eight things:

Results to Expect: You’ll eat better, feel better and -- although not designed as a weight loss plan -- may even shed a few pounds. You will not have to think about complex food rules and make difficult decisions.

The Longevity Diet is simple. Once you get the hang of the changes, you’ll be able to easily increase your health through the foods you eat. So throw out those diet books and calorie charts and get started with the Longevity Diet today.
