Part of the inspiration comes from Ancel Keys who made significant contributions to the field of longevity through his extensive research and findings. While he is most commonly associated with his studies on diet and cardiovascular health, his work also had implications for longevity and healthy aging. He lived a few months short of his 101st birthday!

Keys emphasized the importance of diet in promoting overall health and well-being, which is a key factor in maintaining longevity. Even though his research highlighted the effects of saturated fats on heart health, later on, in 1997, he came to the conclusion, that the research that was conducted on rabbits (which absorb cholesterol into their blood from food), and saturated fat doesn't play as much of a role in heart disease as previously thought. He famously stated in the interview: "There's no connection whatsoever between cholesterol in food and cholesterol in blood." Still, it took nearly 20 years for the eggs to be "pardoned" from a black list of "bad" foods.

Keys advocated for the adoption of a Mediterranean-style diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats. This dietary approach has been associated not only with reduced risk of heart disease but also with improved longevity and a lower incidence of age-related chronic conditions. Ancel Keys' insights continue to inform nutritional recommendations aimed at promoting long and healthy lives.
