The book traces the life and death of a 32-year-old American woman and predicts future performance
What is the Blue Zones diet? How to eat like people who live the longest.
The Blue Zones diet predicts everything: future performance, mental health, longevity. But what is it exactly, and why is it the latest diet to be described as the secret of super-human longevity?
Back in 2005, Josh Fox’s documentary film was one of the highest-grossing documentaries of all time. In 2015, the subtitle for the book adapted from the film became the subtitle for the movement: the Blue Zones Project.

Now, the book has been adapted into a book. Meanwhile, the research has gained urgency: according to the year from World Health Organisation, people born today will live, on average, less than 80 years – that’s less than 25 years less than their grandparents. And the WHO has projected how long people will live in 2050 – around 10,000 years.
The Blue Zones diet traces the life and death of a 32-year-old American woman, surrounded by the diet’s different components: cultures (Esquire describes the diet as a Mexican Comida de la Calle), plant-based foods, fresh air, night time exercise, including exercise in the wild, genetic markers (how much are we all alike) and eye health (we talk about this book as “The Eye Diet”).
The aim is to “change diet, lifestyle and service delivery, and to be unique and productive for life”.
Called the “diet of the future”, the initial phases are cost-free: adopting the Blue Zones diet for 30 days and seeing how you cope (studies in New Zealand and Britain – keep reading).
