Less Eating Means Longer Living
Previously, we talked about how calorie restriction diets can increase your life expectancy, but the side effects will be distasteful to most people. At least they would be distasteful to this joggler.
Here is some interesting science that shows eventually you may be able to get the benefits of a calorie restriction diet without actually having to eat less. It turns out there are some specific genes that get activated when the cell is short on calories. Now, scientists can search for drugs that activate these genes too. This bodes well for my desire to live to 107.
LOL!! I heard eating a spoon full of dirt a day helps too 🙂
