How to live to 100

The results of the Pritikin Longevity Center, documented in 100+ peer-reviewed studies over the past three decades, affirm that we really can live to 100 and enjoy it. And it’s largely done by protecting ourselves from the ravages of diseases epidemic in current society, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, hypertension, and obesity.

Data published by scientists at UCLA and other leading universities have found that the Pritikin Program of diet and exercise has achieved unparalleled results. Here are just a few highlights:

  • LDL (Bad) Cholesterol Reduced

    Among 4,587 adults attending the Pritikin Longevity Center for three weeks, LDL cholesterol fell on average 23%. Archives of Internal Medicine, 1991; 151:1389.

  • Chronic Inflammation Reduced

    Within two to three weeks at Pritikin, markers of chronic inflammation dropped dramatically. High-sensitivity C-reactive protein decreased 45% among women, 39% among men, and 41% among children. Metabolism, 2004; 53: 377. Journal of Applied Physiology, 2006; 100: 1657. Atherosclerosis, 2007; 191: 98. Inflammatory cytokines also decreased significantly. American Journal of Physiology: Endocrinology & Metabolism, 2012; 303: E542.

  • Blood Pressure Lowered; Need for Medications Reduced or Eliminated

    In a meta-analysis of 1,117 hypertensives at the Pritikin Center for three weeks, blood pressure fell to normal or near-normal levels. Of those taking pills for hypertension (598 patients), 55% left Pritikin pill-free, and the majority of the others had their dosages reduced. Journal of Applied Physiology, 2005; 98: 3.

  • For Type 2 Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome, Multiple Risk Factors Reduced

    After two weeks on the Pritikin Program, 67 adults with type 2 diabetes and/or the metabolic syndrome achieved improvements in multiple cardiovascular risk factors. Blood glucose, LDL cholesterol, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure were lowered on average 10% to 15%; triglycerides decreased 36%; body mass index fell 3%; and 37% of subjects no longer met the National Cholesterol Education Program criteria for the metabolic syndrome. Journal of the CardioMetabolic Syndrome, 2006; 1: 308.
