How Fast are you Aging? And What you can do about it

How fast are you aging?


Your Membership Supports the 125-YEAR PLAN,

a Study that YOU can Join:



Formerly known as CR Way™ DNA HACR, 125-Year Plan analyzes the effects of many aging interventions.

A global longitudinal study, open to all who want to live better longer, 125-Year Plan will run in perpetuity. As a participant, you will gain unique insights into how well your aging interventions work and what you can do to improve them.



Years of scientific studies led to a new and very important page on LivingTheCRWay: Tests for Optimal Health and Longevity. Here, contributing members will find suggestions for tests they can do at home, as part of their annual physical, and special testing opportunities they may take advantage of.

Tests include:

Diet & Lifestyle Tracking: Meal logs, glucose levels, exercise (type, calories burned, & intensity), mood, kidney/urinary profile, cardiovascular – VAP (Vertical Auto Profile: lipid analysis, incl. subparticles), intima media thickness.

Annual Physical: Reference ranges from decade+ of human calorie restriction research.

Personal Genome Analysis.

Microbiome Assessments: Gut & others

Eye/Brain Health & Alzheimer’s/dementia risk: Annual measures: retinal blood vessel changes, cognitive function.


Value in numbers!

Much larger and longer than other studies of this type, 125-Year Plan will provide participants with a uniquely valuable opportunity to gauge their age-slowing success by comparing their results to those of others. We expect the study to respond to questions about the effects on aging of diet and other lifestyle aspects – questions that hitherto have been answered largely by guesswork.

Identities of all participants and their results will be strictly confidential. The study will be blinded so that researchers and analysts will not know what data belong to which participants.


Citizen Science

125-Year Plan, a citizen science project, is funded in part by its participants who pay for their own testing. Most participants can expect their health insurance to cover some of their testing costs.

Administrative costs of the project will be funded through memberships in, and donations.
