though the book is still evolving and the printed form may not be current.
It is a monograph for a general audience on a diet that has the potential to delay the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington's and ALS. It is written from a biomedical perspective and is based on recent findings in the field suggesting that periodic protein restriction can induce autophagy, a process by which cells can clear out the protein aggregates thought responsible for disease symptoms.
Protein Cycling is intended as a way for you to live longer and healthier with minimal interference with your normal routine and diet. It is based on well-established observations that animals and people who have endured periods of famine have extended life spans compared to those who have not and on more recent observations that periodic protein restriction alone can accomplish the same thing.
