40% healthy fat = Animal, olive and peanuts
50% protein = meat or isolates(Supplements)
10% carb = Oats, cereal, etc.

Aight, you'd have to be more specific, longevity is a lot about micro nutrients. I drink for that (and lots of other reasons) a glass of hot water with honey, cinnamon, ginger and turmeric everyday, pm me for the specific reasons. All in all for longevity you'd probably be smart to max your IGF-1 so the high protein is good, but I think you underestimate protein, to live on 50% protein is basically a life from chicken breast and whey, the later is bad for your skin. And even chicken doesn't even get to 30%, so while high protein is great, you'd have to be more realistic. I like the low carb approach, you could even cut them out totally since ketones are great for a long living brain, not very good for liver tho. Id recommend antioxidants, ginger and turmeric being the strongest natural ones. Healthy fats are great, concerning the animals forget processed meat though, recent research suggests that red meat is completely fine, the problem is with processed meat, and don't eat too much. Overall Id recommend that you watch more for micronutrients, even tho high protein and high fat is great.
If you only go for longevity and other health benefits like t are not that important Id go for higher carbs tho, since the life expectancy at high carb is 82, on moderate carb is 83 and low carb only 79. Could have to do with the micronutrients connected to carbs, more research necessary

More fat and less protein. I would do like 60-65% fat, 30% protein, 5-10% carbs.
Make sure you are hitting your micronutrients and supplement with things that oppose oxidation. Also do HIIT (sprints 2-3 times a week) frequent cardio and weightlifting. Swimming is excellent because it puts so little pressure on your joints. Check out skincare threads, a lot of the stuff that is good for your skin is also good for longevity. Beauty = Health.
Also, fast. We are starting to see that fasting has insane benefits for longevity, so much so that people have wondered if the supposed health benefits of the diets of certain peoples is actually more closely related to their fasting practices than what they eat. Try and live a fasting focused lifestyle with 48-72 hour fasts frequently and long fasts (7-40 days) placed throughout your year. Look up fasting and autophagy.
In general what lowers inflammation is excellent for longevity. Inflammation ages you.

Fair enough, I'm still trying to figure diet out. I would say the most important pieces are anti-oxidants and fasting, and I see you hit anti-oxidants too. Right now I am wary of carbs because they drive inflammation through an insulin response.

True, I avoid them too, but for longevity they are great

also dont link me bart kay video. i dont care
Okinawan diet isn't composed of sweet potatoes and such as the usual lie goes.
They normally eat a high animal fat diet full of pork and fish.
They simply switched to a high-carb diet due to the war where the livestock was killed.

You don't care about anything that doesn't suit your bias btw.

what does it mean 50% protein? is this supposed to be a diet for weight loss or bulking?
if you mean the ratio "40gr of fat, 50gr of protein, 10gr of carbos" then this diet sucks because there are too many protein and not enough carbos

Typically percentages refer to caloric percentage rather than mass percentage

There's nothing that special about the diet of centenarians in Japan. It's a pretty standard classic Japanese diet.

So fucking confused. One study resulted in high animal product diets and low carb diets being bad, but another study showed that meat consumption led to higher telomere length Which is it? Eat meat or don't eat meat? I don't think there have been any long term experiments with diet to determine what ratio of macros is best.

Edit: Study that linked meat consumption with telomere length was inaccurate (bad sample size). I think staying away from red meat is good though.
All in all for longevity you'd probably be smart to max your IGF-1
I thought the whole point of fasting was to reduce IGF-1 or growth factor to slow down intrinsic aging?

If you really look for longeivity, you would look for Micros especially and a specific diet and not what ratios of Macros lol
