In the not too distant future, people will be able to order a new heart, a kidney, a pair of eyes perhaps (what kind would you like – blue, green, or brown?), whatever they need to rejuvenate their bodies. But for those who don’t want to wait, the CR Way™ offers an array of choices to customize a longevity lifestyle that focuses on your particular needs right now.
Consider cardiovascular health. A nutrient-dense, low calorie diet of foods with low GI rankings inherently provides significant cardiovascular benefits.* You can increase the benefits even more by choosing the best possible fat sources and tailoring your fat intake to produce an optimal lipid profile.

Here you will find a lipid results chart, based on markers that are most predictive of cardiovascular disease and goals to aim for.
Consider migraine headaches, a disease that is especially difficult because no one knows why migraines occur. The good news is that several indicators of migraine risk are countered by calorie restriction. By building a CR Way protocol that especially focuses on this biochemistry, some migraine sufferers may reduce the frequency of their debilitating pain. This provides the basis for a new Protection from Disease section: Reducing Frequency of Migraine Headaches.
If hearing loss runs in your family and you suspect that you have experienced it, make sure to look at the new hearing loss section. Some may think that the ideas suggested there apply only to older people. However, the startling truth is that only 28% of hearing loss is related to age. In fact, one in seven hearing cases loss begins at the ripe old of age of 21 – even earlier than age-related decline of the kidneys, which begins around age 30.
The new sections in Protection from Disease are deliciously supported by the recipe section, which offers custom recipes for various goals:
New recipe categories will be added.
