I'm just wondering how many of you here have thought about how paleo can be beneficial towards slowing aging and if you have any specific ideas you want to contribute.

And this article, which ironically came out after my last comment, agrees: http://www.slate.com/articles/health_and_science/medical_examiner/2012/08/calorie_restriction_and_longevity_monkey_study_shows_hunger_doesn_t_increase_longevity_but_type_of_food_does_.html

The CR studies on primates I've seen used unnatural diet. It's not unreasonable the CR primates live longer in such studies since you're comparing the effects of eating lots of crap with eating less crap.

Whoa, Eugenia, excellent link! Now this is why I bother with PaleoHacks. Great info; thanks! I have an auto-immune response to casein A1 for sure, but I've been scared to try casein A2, just because my body's response to A1 is so very terrible. You are getting me to reconsider.

Slowing the aging process is as simple as improving your health. In my opinion, the majority of people age prematurely..I've seen obvious signs of this in the people I know..I don't think you can undo the damage that is already done but you can keep the majority of it from happening. I turned 50 this year so I'm interested in this topic. Here are some suggestions.

Moderate your starch consumption and (definitely) sugar/fructose. Research terms: glycation and AGEs.

Eliminate all processed packaged foods (common sense).

Eliminate all polyunsaturated oils.

Eliminate gluten.

Try to balance omega 3/6 intake.

Use cocount oil, butter, eggs and fish (make sure you get pleanty of fat soluble vitamins).

Make sure your mineral intake is adequate..

Eat fermented foods frequently.

Make sure you get pleanty of antioxidants.

Intermittent fasting

Well, you can go hard-core by trying Jack Kruse's ideas, but I'm more conservative and laid back, so, this is my anti-aging regimen: http://eugenia.queru.com/2012/03/25/my-anti-aging-regimen/

As david mentioned, intermittent fasting.

CR is the best evidence based method for extending lifespan in all species it has been tested on including primates.

The best intervention - paleo or otherwise - that I know to slow aging is, not surprisingly, fast aging. I realize it sounds counter-intuitive, but it works.
