About Anca Ioviţă

The trajectory of my career has been an incessant zig-zag. I can't help from making synapse connections between concepts and fields many people find unrelated. And I needed this big-picture view to work on my favorite project by far - 'The aging gap between species' book, a journey of comparative gerontology from the simplest to the most complex organisms known and what makes them age so differently. There is a plethora of species displaying negligible senescence, but the research done on them is scattered around in obscure journals and the common mouse is still the de facto animal model when studying aging.

Eat less, live longer BOOK TRAILER
During my third year of medical school I stumbled upon an online article about calorie restriction with optimal nutrition. I read about an apparently simple diet intervention that prolonged the average and maximum lifespan of laboratory animals such as yeast, fruit flies, worms and mice. At that time, I wasn’t aware that such experiments were already done on non-human primates too. Honestly, I dis

Review by: Sherilyn Powers on Sep. 28, 2015 :
Anca Iovita uses a wide variety of studies and very compelling arguments to show how healthy restriction of calories can not only help with longevity but also helping to prevent age-related diseases such as cardiovascular disease or cancer.

She offers extensive information on the types of nutritionally dense foods, how to find them and how to choose the best of them. She challenges readers to expand their food choices and offers ideas for less-known items and how to incorporate them into their daily diets.

This is a realistic look at how to maintain a life-style, not a fad-diet that puts the reader in the yo-yo state of weight loss/weight gain, from someone who is living it and has studied it.

The book combines a mix of complex medical explanations and very easy to follow food choice and preparation, along with practical application suggestions. The complexity will appeal to some, but others may want to have a dictionary close at hand. Personally, I love the challenge to look further into the types of testing Anca suggests for helping to monitor progress and why it is necessary.
