Aging is a primary factor in chronic diseases, including cancer, neurodegeneration, type-two diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, so the researchers wanted to test how effective adjusting diet and lifestyle would be in terms of balancing DNA methylation and thus slowing, or turning back, the biological clock…

Intake of nutrient-dense animal proteins such as liver and eggs was limited, as was consumption of carbohydrates. Volunteers also adhered to a mild program of intermittent fasting “to lower glycemic cycling.”

On top of their dietary interventions, the participants also engaged in a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise per day, five days a week, up to an intensity of 60-to-80% of maximum perceived exertion.

They also practiced twice-daily breathing exercises for stress reduction and were given strict instructions to get at least seven hours nightly sleep.
