Dr. Wallach starts the show today promoting his latest book that is just about ready to come off the presses. The book titled "Immortality" outlines what Doc calls the 4 basic steps in diet needed to live to be 100 years old. The first step is to eat a calorie restricted diet of under 1500 calories daily. Second he recommends taking all 90 essential nutrients especially minerals. Third he contends people should take an antioxidant product that has an ORAC (oxygen reactive absorbtion capacity) value of 20,000 to 25,000. Finally Doc contends that diets should include foods rich in antioxidants such as flavonoids and resveratrol found in chocolate and red wine.
